Island Girls Night Out rocks with fashion, fun

5 mins read

By Pamela Brownstein

The Second Island Girls Night Out was held Wednesday, February 5, at The Clothes Line, located in the former Beaufort Liquidation building at 164 Robert Small Parkway. The store — which features a huge selection of brand name clothes, shoes and accessories, especially women’s handbags, at deeply discounted prices — was the perfect setting for the event that attracted more than 100 people throughout the evening with door prizes, a fashion show and buy one, get one free shopping deals.

Special thanks to Irene Goodnight who, in addition to being the MC, made this night possible by coordinating the fashion show and collecting door prizes from local businesses that were generous enough to donate items. Kudos also to Ginger Wareham with Picklejuice Productions for decorating the store and marketing the event; to the staff at The Clothes Line for working late, especially Manager Rich Tritschler and Nancy Navarro; to Pamela Lombardi who helped backstage at the fashion show; to the volunteer models in the fashion show — Mary Hughes, Jane Krebs, Carol Cobb, Angel Nelson and Latasha Perkins; and especially to Mayor Billy Keyserling who owns The Clothes Line and worked at the event pouring wine and keeping glasses full. And thanks again to all the businesses that donated door prizes.

Southern Graces Catering provided yummy hors d’oeuvres such as smoked salmon and cream cheese “lollipops,” mini-caprese skewers with cherry tomatoes and mozzarella drizzled with a basil aioli, little cups with slender sticks of vegetables in ranch dressing, and of course their signature cupcakes.

The crowded parking lot revealed the growing popularity of Island Girls Night Out, and inside the store the atmosphere was lively with women (and some men) shopping, watching the fashion show, making connections, networking, and having fun. And really, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Save the date for the next Island Girls Night Out to be held Wednesday, March 12 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Fordham Market on Bay Street in downtown Beaufort.

Here are some pics from last week’s event:
