Mark your cals and grab your gals! On Sunday, July 9, from 12-3pm, Cincy Chic is teaming up with Sparkle for Good to create Sparkle and Sun, a fashionable event at the Loveland Oasis.
Sparkle for Good is a jewelry boutique run by Michele Carey that features jewelry by Chloe + Isabel, an affordable jewelry line with a lifetime guarantee designed in NYC. Carey was nice enough to give more insight into her company.
“I created Sparkle for Good over a year ago as a way to provide women with beautiful jewelry while at the same time, give back to non-profits in our community. I pop up all over town- at local boutiques, corporate events, people’s homes, and also Cincy Chic events,” says Carey.
The event itself was created for a few reasons. First, to support a great cause that helps women have quality jobs that lead to them living happy lives, like Dress for Success Cincinnati, whose mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence. The second reason is to give local women business owners a “boost” during July, when sales can be sluggish as people travel and tend to be busy. Lastly, the event is to provide the Loveland women a fun event in their own backyard.
Sparkle for Good also holds a personal meaning for Carey. “July 9th is the birthday of my mom, who passed away 6 years ago. I thought that this celebration of women, for women and by women, was a special way to pay her tribute to her memory acknowledge her many years of encouraging me to be an independent and successful woman. I’m thrilled to have Cincy Chic co-host the event as they are recognized for having the best events for women in our area and have been great about supporting Dress for Success,” Carey explains.
As mentioned earlier, the event takes place at The Oasis, a beautiful space in Loveland which offers a fun excursion for women who live in the city. For women who already live in Loveland, it brings a taste of some great downtown and Northern Kentucky businesses they may not yet know. Everyone wins.
The event itself is the ultimate shopping experience with 60 local business who cater to woman. From cute boutiques to female focused services, this event is for women and by women and is meant to support female owned businesses while having fun. Guests are invited to come shop, learn about services that will make your life easier, add a touch of elegance, and help you feel at your very best.
Specifics of the event include a raffle and a line up of speakers who will run mini-workshops on topics including “planning for progress (not perfection) to achieve your goals,” “re-entering the job market after time away,” and more.
The raffle is for a beautiful basket filled with items from the vendors. Everyone who purchases a ticket is eligible to win a gift basket (approximately $500), and VIP ticket holders will also be entered in a drawing for an exclusive VIP basket (approximately $800). 100% of the ticket prices go to Dress for Success Cincinnati.
Come join the women of Cincinnati for guilt free shopping at it’s best!
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door, or you can purchase a VIP ticket here (only 100 will be sold).
