Le Grand Voyage
Two downtown Boone businesses are teaming up to present their 2012 spring fashion show, “Le Grand Voyage,” on Feb. 24, starting at 8 p.m.
Twice a year, Lucky Penny and Shear Shakti put on a fashion show for their customers, showcasing the season’s fashions with contemporary hairstyles and makeup.
In addition to a fashionable evening, the entertainment lineup is complete with live music from Charlotte-based electronic music duo OK Disconnect.
“We try to offer something a little more unique than your regular clothing boutique and salon. We appreciate our customers just as much as we appreciate fashion and style, so we thoroughly enjoy putting together the show for our shoppers,” said Erin Russell, manager at Lucky Penny.
“This will be our sixth show and so far each have had a different theme complementing either our fall or spring collections, while coordinating with the direction the Shakti stylists wish to go in.”
The two businesses always use customers as models for the show.
“The girls are always really eager to sign up after each show, which is really great because what better way to show off our clothes than on the girls who will actually be wearing them,” said Jennele Vaquera, owner of Lucky Penny. “We really try to get a range of sizes and complexions, so customers get a good variation of whom our clothes will look good on: everyone.”
“We are into fashion. We see high fashion trends that sometimes take years to come to the High Country,” said Charlotte Sweeney, owner of Shear Shakti. “We want people to know they can come to and trust us to be on top of those trends, it’s OK to be a rock star.”
In addition to getting a preview of Lucky Penny’s new spring and summer collections, fashion show attendees will also get the chance to book appointments with Shear Shakti’s stylists.
Shear Shakti offers a wide range of salon treatments from color services and cuts to massages and manicure treatments.
Lucky Penny will also be offering giveaways and store specials the night of the show.
The fashion show will be held in the salon of Shear Shakti above Lucky Penny at 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 24. Doors open at 8 p.m. According to the event organizers, space is limited, so punctuality is crucial.
