Boston-based LIT Boutique collaborates with non-profit organization, Strong Women Strong Girls (SWSG), for its “Fall Into Style” shopping charity event. Fashionistas will shop at either of the two LIT Boutique locations, where 10% of the proceeds will go directly to the charity.
As customers shop LIT’s stylish collection of over 60 different designers, they will enjoy complimentary adult beverages provided by Svedka and other gifts, including expert fashion advice. Tricia Cromwell, Boston-area wardrobe consultant and owner of Trust in Tricia, will be in the stores to help customers shop and share style tips.
Strong Women Strong Girls, founded in Boston, is a nationally recognized mentoring program that connects elementary school girls with college-women mentors. SWSG works to raise girls’ self-esteem and aspirations as they study female role models and participate in educational activities, community service projects, and field trips.
Currently, within the Greater Boston area, 150 college undergraduate women from 5 colleges and universities serve as Strong Women, Strong Girls volunteers to mentor approximately 450 girls at 40 different schools and community centers. “We are so honored that LIT Boutique is hosting this event for us. Collaborating with local Boston businesses like LIT and Trust in Tricia means a lot to us, and I’m sure that the event will not only be fun, but also hugely helpful to our work in the community,” says Lindsay Hyde, founder and president of Strong Women Strong Girls.
Born in 2005, LIT Boutique strives to provide an eclectic mix of fashion-forward designs with the modern urban woman in mind. “My LIT team is extremely excited to host “Fall Into Style!” We can’t wait to reach out with an event that benefits Boston youth,” says founder and owner of LIT Boutique, Nehal Shah.
