The North County Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) will be holding a dress sale for the first time in two years.
The dress sale will be held on Feb. 6 from 4 to 7 p.m. and on Feb. 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at North County High School.
Family and Consumer Sciences Instructor Amy Lee said that this has been done in the past and it’s been traditionally a FCCLA thing because it connects with the Fashions class.
“I’m new in the district and the other lady had left, so because of that we haven’t done it in two years,” said Lee. “We are trying to get back into holding the dress sale because it’s something they have done for years in the past. Several of our students from school are going to want to bring their dress in to sell and we have sent fliers out to other area schools as well. We are expecting to have roughly 100 dresses in the sale.”
Lee said they are hoping to help people sell some of their dresses and while doing that the proceeds will go toward the Sweetheart Dance that will be held on Feb. 21. The FCCLA also plans to donate a portion of their proceeds to a charity they choose.
“There will be signs up that day that will direct everyone towards the area where the sale is in the high school,” said Lee. “To enter a dress in the sale, it costs $1 per dress and you price your own dress. If the dress sells, FCCLA will keep 10 percent of the final sale.”
They will be offering “like new” dresses reasonably priced, a variety of styles and sizes and there will also be a dressing room available.
Dress drop off times are Feb. 4 from 3 to 4 p.m. and Feb. 5 from 3 to 5 p.m. and unsold dresses will need to be picked up by Feb. 9.
