Women to Women Gala Slated for January 30, 2019

Fashion Show LIRMark your calendars in red for the next Women to Women Fashion Show to be held Wednesday, January 30, 2019. Imagine the Guayabitos Plaza adorned with beautiful ladies dressed in powerful red. Wow!  This year’s theme for the party, “Lady in Red,” begs for fashion passion.  Don’t miss the largest show along the coast! What a statement you will make against the pristine white tables and tents. We challenge you to be dramatic: will it be a sexy red cocktail dress or a pure white ensemble with scarlet accessories?  We can’t wait to see red!

The current Women to Women Fashion  Show initiatives includes 27 university grants-a major accomplishment; 44 food bags for needy families at Christmas; a $20,000 grant to GEMA, a shelter for abused women; and supplying daily breakfast to low-income students attending the local middle school.

All of this year-round giving to the community is accomplished from this one event.  As the sole fundraiser for the group, the Fashion Show has a huge responsibility: provide a classy party that entertains the guests; support the local designers and area businesses; generate funds for initiatives. For fifteen years FS group has exceeded their goals-thanks to your support!

The Fashion Show Committee looks forward to seeing you on the red carpet in 2019. Like & follow our Facebook page for updates and join our Facebook group to be a part of the conversation. To donate or volunteer, please email Robin: rriemcke@aol.com or May: may.mackay@shaw.ca

 Check out the beautiful new arrivals at Lombok Exotic Touch Boutique on the main street in downtown Guayabitos. If you want to look good and be comfortable on vacation, Lombok is the place to go! Need something to spiff up an outfit? Lombok has a huge selection of attractive necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, too. “We get new items every week,” said store manager Consuelo Meza (above photo.) “If you like a particular item, but want another size or color, I can order that for you from one of our other stores.” Consuelo is at the store every day and speaks English.

 This funky shop offers exotic home décor but primarily features women’s sensuous clothing, jewelry, purses, belts, pareos, and aromatherapy oils. Lombok remains a popular shopping spot for women who want unique casual apparel that suits the tropical climate. The fabrics are great for tossing in a suitcase and make great souvenir gifts.

 Lombok 2Consuelo has more than 20 years of experience in retail fashion and it shows in the artistic arrangement of the boutique. Her keen eye for color and fashionforward sense of style makes looking good easy for the shopper! It’s so much fun to browse the separates and check out the sale items. Yes, ladies, SALE ITEMS. In. Mexico! And you can treat yourself to a goodie and use your credit card to pay.

 The Women to Women group has only one source of income for its initiatives, the annual show in January. But another goal is for the Fashion Show event to also provide an opportunity for local designers and area women’s boutiques to showcase their talent. The show gives volunteers an opportunity to strut their stuff by modeling these original designs. Don’t miss out on a wonderful afternoon of food, fashion, fun where you Lombok 4can dress up. Not only will you get to meet the 26 young women presently receiving a university scholarship but you will see one of the area’s top stores, Lombok Boutique, provide fresh ensembles for the runway.

 One visit and you will return again and again. Lombok is a great boutique to get some lounge wear, accessories or gifts to bring home!

Don’t miss this girls’ day out event. For more information, visit mujeresamujeres.com or see Yvonne at the Women to Women table at the La Avenida Restaurant, next to the Thursday market in La Penita for your ticket.
