A few times a year, the Junior League of Washington organizes a shopping event with participating stores in Georgetown. Not only is this a shopping extravaganza but also an opportunity to raise money for literacy programs supported by the League. On one evening back in March, participating stores in the Georgetown neighborhood offered 10% discounts to Junior League shoppers on all merchandise and 15% of sale proceeds from each store were given to support JLW’s literacy programs.
The registration started at Urban Chic, where the girls were welcomed with trays of delicacies and fruits. What a nice way to start off the shopping evening! Urban Chic had just received an amazing spring collection with beautiful day dresses, swimsuits and tops. Right across the street, Sassanova welcomed shoppers with a new collection of spring shoes and wonderful selection of hors d’oeuvres! They also had pretty cute beach attire… if only there was a tropical beach close by! With the 10% discount and the 15% donation, there is no reason to feel guilty on a little splurge!
I encourage you to check out JLW’s Georgetown Shopping night – it’s a fun way to enjoy the evening with girlfriends, shop a little (or a lot!), while contributing to a great cause!
