Love That Dress! is the ultimate feel-good shopping spree of the year offering more than 3,000 new and gently loved dresses, shoes, handbags, and accessories at nominal prices to benefit Pace Center for Girls of Lee County. This year, PACE Lee is celebrating 12 years of the community’s obsession for fashion and giving.
Fashionistas enjoy music, shopping, silent auctions, and cocktails. Major Sponsors and VIP guests have early access to shopping, private dressing rooms, express check-out, complimentary drinks and hors d’oeurves, and a private selection of decadent desserts.
Due to the unforeseen challenges from the Covid-19 pandemic, Love that Dress! may look a little different this year. As we navigate through these unprecedented times, we appreciate your patience while we iron out the details for how this year's event will unfold.
Please note that all dates and times are subject to change due to ongoing Covid-19 regulations.
We have big news for Love That Dress! 12 that we can’t wait to share with you! In celebration of our 12th year of fashion and giving, we are providing even more exciting opportunities for you to shop for a cause! Stay tuned for more details and event tickets to come soon!
