Everyone invited to spring fashion show fundraiser for Friends of the Garnett Library

WEST PLAINS, Mo. – Officials with The Kloz Klozet and Cleea’s At Home Market invite everyone to their annual spring fashion show Friday, April 28, at the West Plains Country Club.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Garnett Library, the event, which benefits Missouri State University-West Plains’ Garnett Library, will feature the latest styles in dresses, slacks, accessories, shoes, fashion jewelry, travel accessories and handbags, and wide variety of home decor items, according to Florence James and Cleea Walls, owners of The Kloz Klozet and Cleea’s At Home Market, respectively.

In addition, those attending will be able to view a table of gift items now available at both The Kloz Klozet and Cleea’s At Home Market. The Kloz Klozet carries some unique and outstanding lines of baby clothing, as well as a large assortment of gifts for new arrivals and their parents. Gift registries are available, and items purchased can be gift wrapped.

Cleea’s At Home Market also has a large assortment of jewelry, shoes, accessories, gift items, home decor and furniture. Bridal and baby registries also are available, and items purchased can be gift wrapped.

Doors for the April 28 fashion show will open at 11:30 a.m. for those who wish to come early to shop and socialize.  Attendees also will have the opportunity to shop immediately following the show from 1 to 1:30 p.m.

Admission is $25, with proceeds going toward providing a “huddle space.” According to Sylvia Kuhlmeier, director of library services at the Garnett Library, a huddle space is a trendy term for an area where students can gather and informally share and create information. The space will be equipped with a monitor, table and chairs, and communication software to facilitate information sharing from various devices, she added.

Those who attend the fashion show will receive $10 gift certificates from the presenters. Other prizes also will be given away. Organizers said seating will be open, but there will be larger tables available on a first come, first served basis for those who would like to bring their friends or co-workers to the event.

Seating is limited, however, so those planning to attend the April 28 event should purchase tickets in advance at the Garnett Library, 304 W. Trish Knight St.; The Kloz Klozet, No. 16 Court Square; Cleea’s At Home Market, 1350 Southern Hills Shopping Center; or the Missouri State-West Plains development office, 905 W. Main St. For more information, call 417-255-7940 or e-mail
