PromBoutique CallingDresses 2019The Junior Service League of Beaufort(JSLB) is hosting its 8th annual Prom Boutique on March 9th from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Academy of Career Excellence at the corner of HWY 170 and HWY462 in Okatie.

            Since 2011, JSLB’s Prom Boutique has helped girls in Beaufort and Jasper counties experience the magic of finding the perfect prom dress. In past years, more than 75 girls have attended the event where they were able to choose from a wide-variety of new and gently used formal dresses, accessories and jewelry at no cost. JSLB members serve as personal stylists for the girls, helping each to pick the perfect gown and complete her look. JSLB is excited to offer this amazing opportunity to Juniors and Seniors in Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton counties.

            “The most rewarding part of this experience, and why we continue to host this event year after year, is the reaction of the girls when they find the perfect dress,” said Meghan Meehan, co-chairwoman of the Prom Boutique. The girls leave JSLB’s Prom Boutique with a sense of confidence that serves them far beyond the memorable occasion of prom.

            Any Junior or Senior student in Beaufort, Jasper or Hampton County is invited to attend the boutique. Shoppers must show their student ID or have a letter on school letterhead from their guidance counselor, teacher or school administrator. All girls who attend the event are welcome to bring family members or friends to help them shop.

            The Academy of Career Excellence is located at the corner of HWY 170 and HWY 462 in Okatie.
