JSLB PROM BOUTIQUE – SPRING 2017
The JSLB Prom Boutique is our organization’s signature service project each year. Our members collect dress donations, as well as, accessories and create a beautiful boutique for girls to shop for the dress of their dreams!
The event will be March 11th this year and Junior and Senior ladies in schools around the area are invited to come and pick up a dress for absolutely FREE. There are racks and racks of beautiful dresses to choose from and our members act as their personal stylists, just as you would have in a boutique. They are also able to shop for bracelets, necklaces, earrings, shawls and clutches to round out their look.
It’s heartwarming to watch young ladies leave with enormous smiles on their faces, knowing that this was their only opportunity to select a dress and attend the ever-important prom. We once had a woman tell us we were fairy godmothers!

Junior Service League of Beaufort Announces Sixth Annual Prom Boutique
Local nonprofit helps local girls find the perfect prom dress
Beaufort, South Carolina – February 7, 2016 – The Junior Service League of Beaufort (JSLB) is hosting its sixth annual Prom Boutique on March 11th from 1 to 5 p.m. at YMCA of Beaufort.
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, over 75 girls have attended the event where they are 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. And this year, JSLB is excited to expand the opportunity to Hampton country students as well.
“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 Missy Nelson, co-chairwoman of the Prom Boutique. “The girls leave the Prom Boutique with a sense of confidence that serves them far beyond the memorable occasion of prom.”
Similar to years past, the Prom Boutique offers attendees a red-carpet experience and includes a VIP hour, from 11 a.m. to noon for those who pre-register for the event. VIP attendees have the opportunity to have first pick of all dresses and accessories, while enjoying even more personalized attention from JSLB’s personal stylists. VIP applications are available through school guidance counselors and or by clicking here.
Any 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 YMCA of Beaufort is located at 1801 Richmond Avenue, Port Royal, SC 29935.
Members of the media are invited to attend and cover the event. An event information media sheet will be available and members will be available for comment.
