From 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on February 10, the Hermosa Ballroom was turned into a ladies fun day out. Betty Peterson, coordinator, and Dillard’s, presented the ninth annual Valentine Fashion Show providing a variety of trunk show items from the store, along with new spring arrivals from several clothing departments.
Tables arranged around the perimeter of the dance floor, decorated in white linen with red rose petals and napkins, greeted the guests upon arrival. At 11:30, a delicious luncheon featuring steak and shrimp was presented to each attendee to enjoy at her leisure, capped off with a decadent strawberry dessert. The generous door prizes donated by Dillard’s guaranteed two winners from each table.
Beginning at 12:30, MC Stacy Brown, from the Eloy Police Department, described the clothing the 16 models, including three couples, presented; first a casual outfit that they had chosen followed by a dressy one. Everyone had a front row seat as the models walked, danced or sashayed around the dance floor.
Betty and the Dillard’s manager are already planning for next year–the tenth anniversary of the fashion shows at RR. Watch for more information in the future.
