Does it feel like spring is almost upon us? Well, it is, which means women’s clothing boutiques should shift their focus toward spring fashion. From a business standpoint, this involves the essential task of having your shop ready with plenty of stylish spring attire.
It also helps to host a “spring event” to usher in the new season. Fortunately, this is remarkably easy since patrons can’t wait to embrace the warm weather, along with the chance to grab new sundresses, sheer blouses, or high-octane sequins. So, here are some novel ways to throw a “spring is here” event to generate excitement at your boutique.
Spring Makeover Theme
As you may already know, spring is an ideal time for a makeover, and that covers clothing and cosmetics alike. Have you thought about combining the two by partnering with a local beauty shop? This requires some coordination with a trusted salon or cosmetic business, but works well if done properly. As a team, you can partner with a reputable beauty shop to encourage patrons to get a comprehensive spring makeover: fashion, nails, hair, and more! It’s an effective way to introduce new brands and items women won’t find at other stores.
Spring Cleaning Theme
Another way to approach this is to invite patrons to clean out their closets and donate their old clothing to charity, all while building a new wardrobe at your store. This not only takes advantage of something many women do each year anyway, but you can also use it to improve your business image. It’s easy to do that by accepting donated items (when ladies clean out their closets), and distributing them to women’s shelters and goodwill programs.
Open House Events
This is one we’ve seen at various Scout & Molly’s locations. The best way to pull it off is to attract a popular brand maker or designer to visit your store as a guest speaker. It works wonders when you have a specific brand you wish to highlight (of which, there are many with us). The “open house” side of it also entails a type of “sip-and-shop” opportunity where you can turn the event into a party with catered food, giveaways, and discount offers. There’s no precise formula for doing any of these events, but we’re more than happy to help you work out the logistics and offer suggestions.
