School may have just started a few weeks ago, but a local business is already looking forward to prom season.

For the second year in a row, Hello Beautiful Custom Fashion & Bridal Boutique has partnered with New Beginnings Say Yes to the Dress program and will be collecting gently used, prom dresses from now until January 1st, 2016.

Anyone who drops off dresses at the downtown boutique will be given $5 off if they choose to shop the day of their drop off.

“We’re going into our second year of business here at this location and we were so proud to participate in last year’s dress drive that we knew it was something we wanted to do again.” says Boutique Co-Owner Harmony Peach. “We also participated in helping girls find their perfect dress during last year’s Say Yes to the Dress and we recognize this is such lovely way to lift up the budding young women in our community.”

Say Yes to the Dress is a program run through New Beginnings and it allows local girls to choose a free prom dress for their big day. It’s anonymous and there are no restrictions to the girls.

“Last year we were able to collect close to 80 dresses and this year we’re hoping we surpass that number. We have set our new target at 100 dresses.” adds Co-Owner Lori Moore.

“By encouraging anyone to bring along a gently used prom dress or event dress for the next little while, we can, hopefully, help to make prom night beautiful for every girl no matter her lot in life! And, we’re happy to pay for $5.00 off of every purchase for any person who donates a dress from now until January 1st, 2016.” adds third Co-Owner Dee-Dee Shkreli.

Hello Beautiful Custom Fashion & Bridal Boutique is located at 532 Pelissier Street and is open Wednesday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday to Monday by appointment and fluctuating store hours on Tuesdays.
