The prom season is one of the most exciting times in a student’s life but it can also be a dilemma for those pondering what style of dress to wear.

A ball gown with a full skirt or a short cocktail dress?

Blue, red, or silver?

Lots of lace or sequins and how much?

As luck would have it The Closet by A Beautiful Me is hosting a Prom Fashion Show and Sale featuring dresses priced at 50-60% lower than retail stores from 12 to 3 p.m. Feb. 17 at Wrigley Hall in Port Huron.

“As a nonprofit, when people understand A Beautiful Me’s mission, random calls of support come in various ways,” Karen Palka of Washington Township, founder of the organization, said in a news release. “A couple weeks before Christmas, hundreds of new dresses (600 to be exact) were donated from an Allen Park, Michigan dress store that had to close its business.”

The fashion show will feature 40 different dresses on the runway modeled by local students and adults, some of whom have participated in the programs offered by the organization that works to empower girls with positive self-esteem for the benefit of their overall well-being.

After the fashion show guests will be given the opportunity to browse the dress selection, which has not been seen on the floor before this event and features a variety of styles and sizes ( 0-28) priced anywhere from $85 to $229. There will be many dresses to shop from and try on with an alteration specialist available, too.

Tickets are $10 each.

This includes admission and a $5 coupon toward the purchase of a dress from The Closet by A Beautiful Me.

“Our goal is to provide affordable, beautiful dresses that have passed our 10-point inspection to sell on the floor. With every purchase of every dress (or accessory) the revenue supports our many confidence building programs for girls in 3rd-12th grades,” Palka said, of the nonprofit dedicated to empowering girls with positive self-esteem for the benefit of their overall well being. “This kind of store is called a social enterprise. We are known for the quality of our merchandise and our customer service. Teen girls can sign-up and participate in our free, original business program where they learn hands-on life skills through our retail store. This is sustainability in action with a circular economy.


The Prom Fashion Show and Sale will be held Feb.17 from 12 to 3 p.m. at Wrigley Hall.
