Stepping up and stepping out: Ladies day planned in Lanesboro


Fri, Apr 2nd, 2010
Posted in Arts & Culture

Interested in what the hottest fashions are for spring and summer? Join Cheryl Lamon, proprietor of Cheryl's Apparel in downtown Lanesboro, on Saturday, April 10th, at 10 a.m. at the town's Commonweal Theater. Lamon and her staff will be hosting their annual style show in conjunction with a full day of shopping and pampering offered by several Lanesboro merchants.

"Our fashion show is geared around ladies day in Lanesboro where local merchants will be offering things to make this day special for women visiting our town," Lamon said. Those attending the event will have a chance to win a fabulous gala gift basket from one of the following participating merchants: Olivia's Attic, Scenic Valley Winery, Lanesboro Local, Cheryl's Apparel, Amish Experience, Potiche Pottery and Gifts and Essence of Lanesboro.

"Our theme this year is Stepping Up and Stepping Out," Lamon said. "We have changed the format somewhat to include mini sessions before the style show," she added. According to Lamon, Town Clipper will be providing nails and makeup, Prana Healing Center will be offering hand massages, wellness and nutrition topics will be presented by River Hills Chiropractic and jewelry will be on display and for sale by Cheryl's Apparel. Once the style show is complete, attendees will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy a special luncheon. "We also have other surprises, but I'm not giving away those details," Lamon said. Lamon finished selecting her establishment's new line nearly six months ago.

"In the clothing industry, you pick clothing out about six months before it will be shipped to your store," she said. "We are about done with buying fashions for fall." In this season's line-up? Expect to see bold prints and bright colors.

"Some years the spring selection has featured more earth tones, but this year there is a lot of color," Lamon said. "Turquoise and orange are popular colors and there is always a palette of white and black-- but this year we are seeing more red, too," she added. Light-weight sweaters and boleros to pair with sleeveless dresses and tops are popular items this season and skirts are full and frilly. "Jackets have always been a strong seller at Cheryl's Apparel and this year we are seeing many with bold prints and accent details to make the jacket really snap," she said.

Seven area women will strut their stuff down the catwalk during the style show. One who was hand picked to become a model for the day wa .....
