What: 8th Annual Ultra Chic Boutique; All dresses $25 — CASH ONLY
When: Saturday, February 28, 2015 — 9 am – 3 pm
Where: Omaha Ballroom at Ramada Plaza Omaha Hotel & Convention Center on 72nd & Grover streets.
NEW for 2015: The Dress Flip.
After seven successful years as the Ultra Chic Prom Boutique, we’re dropping the word Prom from the name. Why? Because we’re seeing more and more dresses at every event: wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, evening gowns and cocktail dresses, just to name a few. So it only made sense to drop the Prom and widen the appeal.
Don’t worry; you can still get a fantastic prom dress for just $25 — but while you’re there, why not pick up an elegant evening gown or fun little cocktail number for yourself? Whatever you buy, all proceeds still go to benefit the Omaha Open Door Mission’s Lydia House. In fact, since the first Ultra Chic Prom Boutique event in 2008, we have raised nearly $72,800 for the Lydia House.
Turning heads in a gorgeous dress — it’s a uniquely feminine sensation enjoyed by women everywhere. But for many women, the idea of spending hundreds of dollars or more on a dress — whether for prom or a party or a wedding — is a dream beyond reach.
That’s where the Ultra Chic Boutique comes in. Every year, Max I. Walker customers donate their unwanted prom, bridesmaid, cocktail and other formal dresses at locations all across the Metro, and then Max I. Walker’s employees generously clean, press and mend them. Once ready, the dresses are sold for just $25 (cash) at the Ultra Chic Boutique event in February, with the proceeds going to benefit the Omaha Open Door Mission’s Lydia House.
So... a woman gets to feel extra-special in a beautiful dress for just $25, the Open Door Mission gets a donation, and you gain extra space in your closet. It’s a win-win-win!
If you have an old prom dress, bridesmaid's dress or any dresses you'll never wear — or fit into — again, simply drop them off at your nearest Max I. Walker location. We'll clean, press and prepare your gowns, transforming them into the dress of someone's dreams.
