Last night was the 11th Fashion Show for Peachy Keen!  The theme was A Fall Fashion Carnival benefiting Headbands of Hope for Duke Children’s’ Hospital.  This makes several years in a row now that Smith & Smith, CPA has been a proud sponsor for the Peachy Keen Spring & Fall Fashion Shows!  It is always a fun night and brings out a huge crowd!  They literally turn the entire store into a Fashion Showcase, complete with a raised fashion runway, door prizes, silent auction, drinks, food and other fun things like a “Braid Bar” and a scavenger hunt!  Check out some of our photos below from the Fall Fashion Show!  #peachywearshopecarnival

Peachy Keen Frozen on the Fall Fashion Runway!

Peachy Keen Fall FROZEN Fashion Show

Peachy Keen Fall FROZEN Fashion Show

Last night was the Peachy Keen Fall Fashion Show with the theme of FROZEN!  The event was held in the Peachy Keen store in Cary and had a large crowd of over 130 people!  We were tightly packed in but the room was buzzing with all kinds of excitement over the runway show, specialty drinks, hors d’oeurves, shopping and prizes!   Smith & Smith, CPA was proud to be a sponsor for the event this Fall, our relationship with Peachy Keen runs deep with connections through ShopLocalRaleigh and other networking groups.

Ready on the runway!

The event featured over 20 different sponsors and had a nice swag bag full of all kinds of goodies!  As a sponsor, I ordered Hot & Cold Therapy Bags as our Smith & Smith, CPA give-away (toss it in the freezer to get it nice and cool or in the microwave to get warm, GREAT for those neck & back aches and pains!).  The fashion show itself included close to 40 different looks, ranging from the casual weekend chick all the way to the holiday party girl-on-the-go!

The models had beautiful braids in their hair (hence the FROZEN Disney movie connection) and was styled by The Hair and Face Lounge in downtown Cary.  All of the styles seen on the runway were then available for purchase after the show.  I got lucky and found a very unique and totally perfect dress that I will wear this weekend to the Art Ball, hosted by Cary Visual Art!  My silk top last night was also purchased from Peachy Keen, made by designer Tracy Reese. The jewelry worn by the models was from Kenda Kist, a local designer.  The food was provided by Thai Spices & Sushi, BlackFin AmeriPub and delicious cupcakes by Confectionate CakesNirvelli Day Spa was offering nail painting and there was a whole counter full of door prizes that were donated by the sponsors.

The door prizes included hotel night stays, beauty supplies, jewelry and more!  Smith & Smith, CPA was proud to provide one of our tailgate chairs and matching coolers for the door prize raffle.  Many thanks to all of the sponsors and friends that came last night!  The idea of ‘shopping local’ is huge and something that our firm takes pride in being involved with in many ways.  Last night was also a special time for our group of girlfriends to honor our dear friend, Katherine Greene, who passed away at the end of September, just a month ago.

Katherine was a fan of Peachy Keen and always attended the Spring & Fall fashion shows with us.  Katherine had a flare for fashion and brought so much joy and laughs to our group of friends.  Donna, Karly and Jen Hankin, owners of Peachy Keen, were very kind to let us buy Katherine a seat for the show last night, we had her chair decorated with photos and flowers.  At the end of the night, we gathered in the parking lot to release balloons and share our memories of Katherine together.

We appreciate the kind words that Donna said during the opening of the show, it was a memorable night for us to honor a dear friend who will always be missed so much.  Donna reminded us all that life is short and each day should be lived to the fullest!  We need to take time to celebrate with friends and create those memories, you never know if today is your last.   Peachy Keen hosts the fashion show event twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall.  The next Spring Fashion show will be held on April 16th, mark your calendars to be there!
