Elle Marie announces Elle-gant Gowns prom dress drive


April 2, 2013

Are old prom, homecoming and tolo dresses taking up space in your closet? Elle Marie Hair Studio can help! Now through April 14, Elle Marie is collecting dresses for distribution to various schools throughout Snohomish County. To show their appreciation, the salon is offering $10 in Elle Marie Beauty Bucks to each guest that makes a donation.

“Every young lady deserves the chance to go to a formal dance and feel beautiful without having to worry about the money they might not have for the dress.” says Alderwood Studio Coordinator Brooke Undseth. “If we help even one of those ladies, it is worth it in the end.”

The first annual free event is open to the public April 24 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Jackson High School.

It features vendors such as hair salons, florists and tuxedo rental shops. Elle Marie owner, Colleen Buck, loved the idea and went further indicating that one thing she has always wanted to do is sponsor a dress drive.

Dresses can be delivered to any of the three Elle Marie locations.

For addresses and hours, visit or call your nearest salon in Mill Creek (425-402-1900), Lake Stevens (425-397-8883) or Lynnwood across from the Alderwood Mall (425-640-6555).
