Big prom plans for Westfield and The Glass Slipper Project

The first thing that comes to a girl’s mind when she thinks of her prom is the age old question: “What am I going to wear?”   So with prom season fast approaching, Westfield and The Glass Slipper Project will make the answer to that question much easier for local teens in need.   Starting March 19-24, Westfield Old Orchard (Skokie Blvd & Old Orchard Rd. Skokie, IL 60077) and Westfield Hawthorn (122 Hawthorn Center, Vernon Hills, IL)   will be working with The Glass Slipper Project to collect new and lightly used prom attire and accessories. 

They are putting out a call to action to the community to collectively donate over 1700 dresses to provide area teens with a full prom ensemble for the special night.  This is the first year both Westfield locations will be participating in the Donation Days, which leads up to the annual Boutique Days events held Saturday April 14, 21, and 28.   There, participated girls will enjoy shopping for their dresses, accessories, and beauty products from the assortment of donated merchandise. 

If you have merchandise that you’d like to donate, Westfield Old Orchard shoppers can drop off donations at the Concierge Center located in the service collection next to Helzberg Diamonds. Westfield Hawthorn shoppers can drop off donations at the Concierge Center, located on the upper level near Carson Pirie Scott.  Each shopper who donates merchandise will receive one $10 Westfield Gift Card and a variety of special retailer offers.

Additionally, Westfield is getting into the prom spirit by hosting several free prom-themed events at the Old Orchard and Hawthorn locations.  March 24 marks the Pre-Prom Party Celebration where shoppers can enjoy music provided by a local DJ, prizes, and the crowning of a local area “prom king and queen”.  Those that attend will also have the chance to win a spa “prom package” from Mario Tricoci salon and a $300 Westfield Gift Card.  Shoppers can also stop in to Westfield Old Orchard Lord & Taylor March 24 to enjoy a free fashion show highlighting current trends in prom fashion, and Bloomingdale’s April 14 for a prom shopping event offering music, make-up touch ups, and special gifts with purchase courtesy of BCBG!
