Spring is Right Around the Corner at My Dressing Room

February 4th, 2013 by Laura

It may not seem very Spring-like lately – we were promised a sunny weekend, but the fog decided to stick around and ruin those plans. However, this Friday, February 8th, at local boutique My Dressing Room, you can get a peek at Spring via a trunk show featuring Neesh clothing and a free glass of bubbly.

The Neesh Spring 2013 Trunk Show is free and runs from 3pm-9pm at My Dressing Room (1817 Queen Anne Ave N). Plan spending a Friday afternoon or evening on Queen Anne Ave N, stop in at this Queen Anne boutique and other shops as well – shop local!

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday receiving so much attention, small businesses often get left out in the rush of big-box deals, lines, and crowds. So, don’t forget our local Queen Anne small business, they’re what keeps the character of Queen Anne alive. Shop locally this holiday season, and visit our merchants on Saturday, and throughout the year!
