“Telling women not to shop is like telling the Pope not to pray. Women always want clothes, credit crunch or not. I love a good swish.” Twiggy.
Are you still holding on to clothes that no longer serve you? The Athlone Springs Hotel is hosting a ‘Swish Party’ on Thursday 7th May 2009 in aid of Special Olympics. Doors open at 7pm. Unburden your wardrobe, bring your unwanted garments to a party with like-minded ladies and leave with some fab newly exchanged pieces and plenty of creative ideas.
How it works: Prior to the main Swish Party Night, a Collection Night will be held on Friday 24th April from 3-7pm. Bring all your unwanted garments you are happy to exchange (worn or unworn and in desirable condition) including jewellery, accessories, hats and shoes. We will provide tags for each item received to be used on the Swish Night (7th May).
We’ll display the clothes, provide drinks and nibbles, and encourage you to try on as much as possible. For any boutiques, hairdressers etc. who are interested in exhibiting on the night, tables cost just €50.
Tickets for the Swish Night will be on sale from Friday 10th April at Athlone Springs Hotel. Tickets are €20 and will include 20 tags to ‘buy’ goods on the night. Additional tags will be on sale on the Swish Night.
For anyone who purchases tickets before Friday 24th April will go in to a draw for a fabulous makeover worth €1,000. All proceeds on the night will go to Special Olympics.
