TLPL In February

Yesterday was a wonderful day!  Busy from morning till evening, but a very nice day.  I started the morning bright and early with the Cary Chamber Board of Directors meeting. NC Congressman, George Holding, joined us and took time to tell the group about his plan & experience so far.  From there I went to North Raleigh for the Triangle Ladies Power Lunch. One of my regular monthly favorite events for sure!  Linda Craft was the guest speaker and did a nice job sharing her life journey with crowd. Here is a picture of Triangle Ladies Lunch Host & Founder, Carrie Peele Franks, with her new husband, David Franks, along with Bernadette from Pretty In Pink and Linda Craft (on the end in red).

It was a very active group at the TLPL and the shopping/vendor hour was bustling with lots of new faces!  I was pleased to have Tayloire Queen join me again by sharing half of my booth space.  Tayloire has been a friend/client for many years and was offering adorable Easter Baskets as her highlighted product.  Check out this cute picture of Tayloire with my friend, Kim Davis.  Kim won the pink sarong that is wrapped around her; it was a door prize that Tayloire was giving away.  Cute picture ladies!

WBON of Cary was proud to have a booth too, we were telling ladies about the March 13th WBON Charity Fashion Show and the $6,000 WBON Scholarship.  It was also awesome to see Rebecca Lakey back at the luncheon, owner of FanFeet.  She was my guest at the January luncheon and liked the event so much that she even hosted a vendor booth this time.  Her sister, Rachel, was in town visiting and attended the luncheon with her.  Her shoes were a big hit and lots of women were stopping by to check them out.

I’m holding up two of my favorite pairs…Go ECU PIRATES! I am the proud owner now of the ECU Pirate, Madita Heel, from FanFeet. I posted the picture on my facebook page and had lots of comments.  Several people wanted to know if Rebecca had any flat shoes in her line and she let me know that she has a kitten heel coming out in the Fall, but no flats yet.  Maybe soon though!  Thanks also to My Girlfriend’s Closet of downtown Apex & Cary for the lovely silk By Milly New York collection dress that I wore.  I had lots of compliments on it all day long!  MGC is the best place to shop!

 

Good picture ladies!

I ended the afternoon with the Cary Chamber Membership Drive Kick-Off Party…named….BONANZA! I’m too young to remember the show, but I’ve done my research and I’m up to par!  We had a huge crowd and we are going to reach our goals of $250,000 and 200 new members!  Loved the props of the pony-stick horses, the bandannas and the videos.  More to come!  Here is Cary Chamber President Howard Johnson and Governmental Affairs Chair Steve Zaytoun in costume!
