Time flies when you’re having fun, right?
As we slowly cope with August being here already with the start of a new month comes everyone’s favorite, First Thursday. Come enjoy SoLa’s Girls Night Out as we kick off our semi-annual clearance sale on August 6th, from 5-9pm. Tons of merchandise will be discounted 50% off and all red-lined items are an additional 50% off! You, SoLanistas, get first dibs this Thursday before the public sale starts Friday. You can peruse the racks and grab a cocktail, compliments of Winebelly, while you wait for a relaxing chair massage from Vita Wellness. You can also ditch your fears of buyer’s remorse as a portion of your purchase will go toward benefiting GENaustin (Girls Empowerment Network).
Developing into a woman can be a checkered path, filled with hormones, peer-pressure and unrealistic expectations of “what a woman should be”. While times can be challenging, utilizing a support system can be extremely helpful. “GENaustin’s mission is to support and guide girls to make wise choices as they navigate the unique pressures of girlhood.” This organization provides a multitude of services for girls and women alike, which foster healthy relationships, provide role models and help to develop smart decision-making skills. Starting with a group of concerned mothers, who after reading Reviving Ophelia by Dr. Mary Pipher, became passionate about helping young girls combat a “systematic decline and sometimes permanent loss of self-esteem, the outcome of which can be devastating.” Today, the organization is highly active in all of Austin and it’s surround communities. As they continue to gather support, they look to spread the message of the Girls Empowerment Network across Central Texas.
To learn more about GENaustin and how you can get involved, stop by SoLa at 2005 South Lamar, this Thursday, August 6th, from 5-9pm where the organization will be on hand to spread their message along side massages from Vita Wellness and vino from Winebelly. New arrivals will be fully stocked on the floor along side our killer First Thursday sale items. Grab your lady friends and shop to support girl power with SoLa, GENaustin, Vita Wellness and Winebelly.
