Buying a great dress for prom, a wedding or another special event doesn't have to break your bank account.
The Junior League of York is partnering with the York College Public Relations Student Society of America for a sixth annual Prom Dress Blowout sale Friday, Feb. 22, through Sunday, Feb. 24.
More than 500 dresses at discounted prices will be for sale at the West Manchester Mall.
"They are a little more discounted this year than in previous years," said Sara Hunt, president of the Junior League of York. "If you're looking for a dress, then check us out."
Prices range from $5 to $40, and the selection includes bridal gowns, prom and homecoming dresses, cocktail dresses, specialty outfits and Halloween costumes for adults and children.
There will be accessories such as shoes, evening bags, gloves and wraps available for $1.
One last time: This is the last scheduled dress sale for the Junior League of York, said Hunt.
"There are lots of other groups are doing it and we are trying to direct our attention somewhere else and see what other opportunities are out there for us," Hunt said.
For instance, they plan to focus more attention on the Huggies Every Little Bottom Diaper Drive and Diaper Bank project, which donate diapers to babies in need, she said.
The public relations society not have any plans at this time to take over the dress sale, said Michelle Kemp, a member and account executive for this year's sale.
The sale hours are 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22, 11 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23, and 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 24.
Anyone interested in donating items for the sale can do so by dropping them off at the Guest Services office at the West Manchester Mall or at the Junior League of York Thrift Shop, 166 West Market Street, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
