Trunk Show For a Cause

As many of you know last summer in 2009 I started a brand, Shorely Chic. It started out with a little shop online and then grew to include an interior design blog, twitter and facebook pages, and frequent appearances at trunk shows and art festivals around Fairfield County. I have developed a fan base of just under 1500 people which continues to grow everyday and have formed a network with entrepreneurs and designers locally and all over the country. I can't tell you how much happiness and satisfaction this endeavor has brought to me and I hope that through my documented journey, I may have been able to share some of this positive energy to inspire you to chase your dreams :)

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all so much for your support this past year for I could not have done it without you!

I am very excited to share with all of you a recent development with Shorely Chic.
After a hugely successful trunk show event we had in town, some local designer friends and I have teamed up a to develop 'Trunk Show for a Cause'. The concept of 'Trunk Show for a Cause' originated from our goal to get our products in front of as many people as we could without having a retail space and from our genuine desire to give back to our community. We are hoping that these trunk shows will be beneficial for both parties in that the host or hostess will receive a donation from a percentage of our sales to go to the charity of choice and we will be able to display our beautiful items to the guests. This is our way of giving back and we are so excited to have to our friends, family, and fans included in this special and most importantly fun endeavor!

Whether you want to plan a simple ladies night in for you and your friends, a team gathering with parents and families, or a summer picnic - you choose the charity and guests and we will provide the goods!

Trunk Show for a Cause Terms & Conditions:
-If you live within one hour of Greenwich/Stamford/Darien, Connecticut we can host a weeknight event. For all other locations greater than one hour driving distance the event would have to take place on a weekend.
The Hostess will receive a hostess gift & discounts on all products.

-Ticket sales or donation at the door are optional but 100% of the ticket sales would benefit the charity.

-15% of all sales from the event would go directly to the charity.

-You invite your friends and even request mailing lists from your charity and we will show up with a beautiful display of all our fine hand-crafted items.

**If you are interested in booking a Trunk Show for a Cause please let me know. The Vendors will depend upon who is available but could include handbags & accessories, chic home decor, stationary, hair accessories, jewelry, fine art, perhaps a cupcake sampling from a local baker? We have many contacts and can work with you no matter the size of the show.**

Thanks so much for your time and continued support.
