Girls Night Out feat. Austin Pets Alive!

by Miss Venus

Although it feels as if our inaugural Girls Night Out event was just yesterday, it wasn’t and we are ready for round two! Join SoLa Boutique March 5th, 2015 for Girls Night Out and our legendary First Thursday Sale when we’ll donate 10% of your purchase to support Austin Pets Alive!. While the sale runs all day, APA! and Winebelly will be joining us from 5-9PM for Girls Night Out with furry friends and finger food (separately, of course).



Last month, SoLa partnered with local designer Haley Lebeuf for the launch of their new Girls Night Out event promoting their legendary monthly sale. On the first Thursday of each month, SoLa slashes prices in their sale room an additional 50% off the lowest marked price. This year, their kicking it up a notch by partnering with local restaurant favorite Wine Belly to supply a light snack and a splash of vino to wash it down with each month. Furthering their commitment to community collaboration, SoLa has chosen to partner with the local charity Austin Pets Alive! this March. The charity committed to saving animals from euthanasia list around the city will be on site with one of their K9 ambassadors for customers to meet and greet.

“The hardest part of hosting a successful monthly event is getting through the first one,” says Sarah Duffy, Senior Personal Stylist at SoLa. “Now that we’ve got this Girls Night Out Eve on the books, we just have to keep moving forward, bringing in other local organizations, and expanding our market.” SoLa targets local artists, brands, charities and designers who they feel appeals to their current customer to collaborate with. Austin Pets Alive! was an obvious choice for the SoLanista’s who boast a sassy French Bulldog named Miss Venus as their store mascot. “All of our customers seem to really enjoy having Venus in the store while they shop, whether they themselves are dog owners or not,” Duffy claims. “She’ll stay home for this month’s event though-she’s a little competitive when it comes to the spotlight.”

If your social calendar is booked for March 5th and you would like to donate to donate to Austin Pets Alive!, you can stop by SoLa Boutique located at 2005 S. Lamar, where the girls are accepting cash and wish list donation items now through March 5th. The shelter is in need of items like baby food, Benadryl, yoga mats, dog sweaters, cat beds, and lots more! To view the full APA! wish list, please visit the organizations website. You can also contribute to the organizations wish list online through their Amazon Wishlist.

Come out to SoLa Boutique to sip, shop, and support Austin Pets Alive! on March 5th, 2015 from 5-9PM. The sale room opens at 11am and 10% of all the days proceeds will go to support the pet saving organization, Austin Pets Alive!. Wine, snacks, and puppies- what more could you ask for?!
