Last year the Dream Boutique was able to provide dresses for 24 girls on their way to prom. Dream Boutique organizers Kim Dans and Erin LaPlante are hoping for the same kind of success this week in the boutique’s second year.
With the remodeling underway at the Fournet Building, the boutique has had to move venues but times will remain the same. “The address is 323 North Main Street,” said Dans. “We’re going to be open Wednesday, March 27 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 31 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.”
There is a large selection of items available at the boutique, but by far the most diverse selection is a large number of dresses. “Dream Boutique is an opportunity for girls who maybe can’t afford all the prom attire to come into a boutique type-setting, and get affordable dresses,” said LaPlante. “We just did a count and we’re up to 181.”
