Summer Girlfriend Shopping Event

Summer Girlfriend Shopping Event at Chico’s

At a previous Chico’s Girlfriend Shopping Event in the spring, Lori and I decided to host a shopping party to highlight summer trends.  We thought it would be a blast to reach out to our college girlfriends and invite them to join us!  We met these girls our freshman year at Northern Illinois University in 1979.  We were all on the same dorm floor!  The result was a full day of shopping, laughing, catching up, reminiscing, eating and drinking!  Needless to say we had so much fun we agreed to do it again soon!  Those who couldn’t attend will be sure to join in the next time.

The sales staff were more than gracious providing us snacks, pulling sizes, taking pictures and joining in our laughter!  A big thank you to:  Alex Modoran,  Linda Andrews, Amy Collier and Maryann Fitzpatrick  (pictured below)!  FTF thinks they had as much fun as we did!

Cindy and Kathy bought the same tops so we’re thinking they’re proven winners!

This top and these pants were must haves for me although I do not intend to wear them together!  The detailing on the pockets and drawstring tie are amazing…Rhinestones!

Jaci had a successful shopping trip as evidenced by her foot long receipt!
Jaci won the raffle prize give away, which was a nice summer beach bag!  Chico’s gifted each of us either a key ring or a bracelet.  How very generous and greatly appreciated!  Thanks Chico’s!
After several successful hours of shopping, it was off to dinner, drinks, continued laughter and reminiscing!
Lori and I gifted the girls an NIU tee shirt for old time sake!
