Sassy Pants Boutique owner Lynette TenBrink likes working with other downtown shop owners and a recent fashionshow she put on featuring her clothing and accessory items was a good example of team spirit.
Held at Reds on the River with desserts catered by the same, the Sassy Pants fashion show featured flowers by Flower Garden Floral and a fruit tray from Twisted Vine. Christine Gualt from A Charmed Life Salon donated finger and toenail painting to make the day a luxurious one, Polly VonEschen supplied her delicious truffles and Sweet Tooth provided complimentary bags of caramel corn for visitors as they left.
“It was just wonderful,” TenBrink said of the first-time event for the boutique. Her business has been booming since she opened in downtown Rockford and the shop recently relocated to a roomier space at 51-1/2 E. Bridge Street. Models ranged in age from two months to 12 years in age and in addition to plenty of cool outfits and classy combinations of clothes, visitors were entered into drawings for prizes and gift certificates.
“It was sold out before the event. Everything went so well I couldn’t be more thrilled,” TenBrink said. The store features fun and funky yet sweet and girly clothing from infant through size 16 as well as a line of baby gifts. The boutique can be visited online at sassypantsgirlsgoutique.com or on facebook.
