Shine a little Light on me!

SUGAR boutique was recently nominated for the " Shine A Light" contest sponsored by American Express and NBC Universal for recognizing an inspiring small business. The winner can take home a lot of money to be used for marketing and growing the small business! Just what the fashionista ordered. All you have to do to Shine A Light on SUGAR is log into "Shine A Light" , go to nominations, enter in SUGAR boutique in Pittsburgh and VOTE! Takes a couple of minutes, but the results could last a lifetime ( and result in a killer celebratory party if won )!

As always, thank you for you're sweet support!

SUGAR makes house calls...

OK, well not that type of house call silly. SUGAR will come to you, any day of the week with wares in tow to sweeten up your wardrobe. Think of it as a dress party. You, your friends, me and a TON of goodies coming to the comfort of your own home for a private viewing. Throw in a bottle of wine and we have a party!

So you're wondering, "what's the catch?" No catch! There is no fee for this party either. Life gets busy, with kids and school, work and family, I will make it easier by bringing SUGAR to you. Holiday dress season is right around the corner. I can make styling for it easy breezy!

If this is something that would interest you and your friends, email me at : and we can get the party started!
