For the third year in a row, Bayside Estates is proud to offer the public a fabulously stylish fashion show luncheon, taking place Friday, March 2, beginning at 1 p.m., at the community's grand clubhouse.

Gerry Chandler, fashion show coordinator, event emcee and Bayside Estates resident, is proud to show off some wonderfully modern ensembles for any size, style and budget.

"This year, Boutique on Wheels will be supplying our models with several fantastic styles, and everything you see during the show will be available to purchase that day," Gerry said. "Right down to the accessories, including jewelry, purses, hats and scarves."

Those in attendance will be able to purchase exactly what they'd like immediately after the show, with several sizes available for each of the clothing pieces. If for whatever reason your size is not available that day, it can be ordered and delivered shorly after.

"I don't care if you have a budget of $10 or $300 there is something here for every one and every size," Gerry said. "It's great that our style-show guests can purchase items right after the show. It's much more convenient for our residents and guests who can't make it out too often, or too far."

The five lovely models showing off the beautiful pieces that day are all different sizes as well, "because not everyone is a size 4,"?Gerry said.

"Boutique on Wheels has 40 different designer names in their collection. When first viewing the company's collection, I was very happy with its clothing and styles very nice, very up-to-date styles," Gerry said.

Prior to satisfying their style craving, fashion show guests can satisfy their hunger craving, by enjoying a very fresh and tasteful lunch, consisting of finger sandwiches, salad, fruit cup, dessert and a drink. The show will then begin around 1:15 p.m.

Gerry said the clothing and items will already be available that day at a special discounted price, but for an even deeper discount, be sure to write your name on the back of your ticket for a chance to win one of the many raffles held that day, which will offer guests a chance at even more discounts on the styles shown.

Going by previous Bayside fashion shows, at least 200 guests are expected to attend the stylish event, and at least 20 ensembles will be modeled that day.

"We will also have 50/50s and door prizes during the show," Gerry said. "We're going to have a lot of fun. It's going to be a great time, and everyone will enjoy the afternoon."

Tickets to the style show luncheon are $10, and include lunch, a drink and entry into the raffles. Parking will be available in the empty lot next to the clubhouse. For more information on the show, call Gerry, 233-8465.
