7 Reasons Why You Should Visit The Karma Cafe in Saskatoon

posted by The Princess Shop    |   April 19, 2017 14:52

 

1. 3% of your purchase will be donated to a local nonprofit/charity. The Princess Shop is the lucky and grateful beneficiary February-July 2017. This speaks to their name, The Karma Café – Conscious Café & Eatery. This local business was built upon the philosophy that it goes beyond serving the community delicious food, to giving back to the community.

2. The owners are the nicest people you’ll ever meet. This attitude is also reflected in the staff which is always welcoming and helpful.

3. Their Bulletproof Chai Latte. If you haven’t tried it, what are you waiting for? It is great iced or hot, and has the perfect balance of Black Chai Tea, Grass fed Butter, Coconut Oil, Raw Honey, Dash of cream, Ginger, Cinnamon, and Turmeric. This among their other amazing teas, lattes and hot smoothies… so delicious!

4. Located in beautiful downtown Saskatoon. Located at 157 2nd Ave North, this spot is super accessible by all modes of transportation, and they have a cute sidewalk patio!

5. The décor is both cozy and bright. It makes you want to bring your favorite book or journal, friend for a catch-up, or a date – it appeals to all!

6. The Nighttime Menu launches tonight (April 20) and it is full of amaaaaaaaazing food and cocktails. Our Executive Director, Karen, received a special invite to the preview tasting and can’t stop thinking about the Dim Sums, Samosa Flautas, or the Key Lime Beergarita. The Nighttime Menu be offered Thursday-Saturdays 6pm-10pm.

7. So many other reasons… Including the fact they hosted our Fairy Godmother Program mentorship group after hours for two nights in March, they attended our Glass Slipper Benefit, and they are planning a fundraiser (stay tuned)!

In closing, local businesses like The Karma Café are so important to support as they are built to better the community through experience and giving back. Please plan your next trip to The Karma Café soon!

The 10th Anniversary Glass Slipper Benefit for Princesses was a Success!

How the Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon Serves the Community's Greatest Needs

posted by The Princess Shop    |   January 6, 2017 16:29

The Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon's mandate is to "Serve the Community's Greatest Need.” The Princess Shop is honoured to be among the many worthy causes in the city being supported by this volunteer organization. 

The Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon have been a major sponsor of the Dress Program since the 2011-2012 graduation season, as Diamond Sponsor! This commitment and support has allowed The Princess Shop to grow and flourish over the years, and this year we are celebrating our 10th graduation season supporting Saskatchewan’s graduating women in need! With last year’s 127 Princess Graduates, we anticipate another busy year ensuring graduating students in the province have an equivalent graduation experience to their peers!

As a nonprofit group, the Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon puts on many initiatives throughout the year to raise funds that will go directly back into the community. It is important for the greater community to pay attention to these events, because their success is spread across so many initiatives in the community from grassroots sports to cultural events to social impact organizations like The Princess Shop! 

Keep an eye out for these fundraisers put on by the Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon:

Kinsmen Sports Celebrity Dinner - Feb 3rd, 2016 (tickets on sale now, here!) - The 57th Annual Kinsmen Sports Celebrity Dinner pays tribute to hockey legend Guy Lafleur with special guests Mario Lemieux, Luc Robitaille, and GM of the Montreal Canadiens, Marc Bergevin.

Kinsmen Home Lotto – Spring and Early Summer

Kinsmen Car Awards – July/August

Aside from fundraisers, the Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon also creates accessible experiences for the community:

Special Needs Shopping Night – November every year

Special Needs Movie Matinee – Spring and Fall

Kinsmen Day at the Zoo – Late June – Enjoy free access to the Saskatoon Forestry Farm 

Kinsmen Day at the Children’s Discovery MuseumMonthly free admission for all to enjoy one of Saskatoon's newest museums! The next one is on January 22!

Thank you, Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon, for your loyal support and commitment to the Saskatoon community, and especially to the Dress Program!

An Exciting Start to The Princess Shop's 10th Year

posted by The Princess Shop    |   October 6, 2016 12:14

Back to School means back to routines and getting down to business, which is what we’ve been doing at The Princess Shop! The change of season has the The Princess Shop team changing gears from summer and getting ready for the exciting year ahead of us!

The Princess Shop team had a great summer that was kicked off with The Perfectly Pink Appreciation BBQ, which was an awesome opportunity to celebrate a successful graduation season with all of our Princess Graduates. This summer we had a number of fundraisers including our first ever Wine-raiser, Firkin Friday at Fionn MacCool’s and Broadway Street Fair with KR Jewelry. Our volunteers also had so much fun with Back Then & Again Jewelry, selling old inventory at The Saskatoon Comic and Entertainment Expo

 

 

Now that the summer is over and autumn (or winter?!) is upon us, The Princess Shop team has been getting back to routine and planning events for the coming months! The 2016/2017 Fairy Godmother Program has commenced! The first official activity in September was held at the University of Saskatchewan. The program coordinators, Emily and Susan, created a photo scavenger hunt for the matches to have fun with. This activity was to expose the Princess Graduates to campus in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, while working together with their Fairy Godmother. Some of the questions were designed to get them thinking about post-secondary studies and what they would possibly like to pursue, and others were just for fun! The activity was also a great form of exercise as the matches were running back and forth all over campus! The October activity will consist of a self-confidence workshop put on by MASALA Model & Talent. Future activities that the coordinators are looking into are a self defense classes, healthy cooking classe, and a personal finance session with TD Bank to name a few!

Coming up we are having The Fourth Annual Steak Fundraiser for The Princess Shop at The Sutherland Bar for the Saskatchewan Roughriders' away game vs. The Toronto Argonauts on October 15, 2016. This is going to be a fun event to cheer on The Riders, while supporting The Princess Shop! There will be a number of awesome raffle prizes that will be available to win! Tickets are only $20 and you can get yours by contacting The Princess Shop at info@theprincessshop.ca or phone (306) 222-3311!

Last, but certainly not least getting back to routine means starting to plan for the 10th Annual Glass Slipper Benefit for Princesses! The Princess Shop volunteer team has already started brainstorming in preparation to make this year the biggest and best year yet! Make sure you save the date for April 5, 2017, it’s going to be an event you don’t want to miss!

Best Cupcake in Saskatoon goes to...

posted by The Princess Shop    |   January 28, 2016 09:43

When we were first contacted about being a part of Wintershines in 2016 we were as excited as we were overwhelmed with ideas. As a Saskatoon non-profit, we take any opportunities we can to be involved in the community. We knew that being part of Potashcorp's Wintershines was the perfect opportunity to spread information about our program, while giving the community a place to gather, and to share some sweet treats on a cold winter day. 

After learning that there weren't any other cupcake competitions locally, we knew that we had a great opportunity to bring the community together to name BEST CUPCAKE in SASKATOON! We got to work reaching out to local cake masters and bakeries, and were so grateful for the reception we had! Our event was as huge success, and we owe that to each of our local contestants. Without further ado, a huge thank you to The Park Town Hotel, Cakes by Britney, Griffin Takeaway, Baby K Cupcakes and Cakes, The Cupcake Conspiracy, and our very own Princess Shop entry. 

Each of our bakers and bakeries chose a gown from the Princess Shop to model their cupcake design after. The results were OUTSTANDING!

The Park Town Hotel's delicious vanilla cupcakes were served upside down, a design inspired by their gorgeous mermaid style grad dress. It was topped with orange creamsicle icing, and handmade black licorice pearls that perfectly emulated the taste of tiger tiger icecream.



Griffin Takeaway had the most articulate icing design. They designed a chocolatey rose on top of each cupcake that went perfectly with their stunning dark red and rose coloured gown.

Baby K Cupcakes and Cakes created a perfect swirl of vanilla and strawberry. From the most moist cupcake to the swirled icing, strawberry shortcake herself would be jealous of this one! 

The Cupcake Conspiracy absolutely nailed their take on a classic chocolate cupcake, and upped the anti from there with the most outstanding colour combination of the evening. Buttercream in flavour, but multicoloured rainbows and sparkles in appearance. It was as tantilizing to the eyes as it was to the tastebuds.



Our very own Princess Shop baker who also doubles as our Live Auction Coordinator, Miss Whitney, lead our team in the design of a beautiful and tasty raspberry rose cupcake.  

And last but certainly not least, our 'Dress It Up Cupcake Contest' WINNER is the lovely Cakes by Britney! Britney put a new spin on an old favourite. This delicious carrot cake was also infused with coconut and pineapple, topped with signature ice blue buttercream frosting and crowned with silver sparkles and jewels. It was as tasty as it was beautiful! CONGRATULATIONS BRITNEY AND TEAM!

 

Other thank yous to the businesses who donated door prizes: The Industrial Kitchen & BarKR Jewelry, Joy Tesch Stylist at Visions Salon & Spa !

A special thank you to Kevin Stanfield of Global Saskatoon for emceeing the event and announcing our winner!

To Mandy Pravda , Kim Ali, and Jeff Culbert for putting on such a fantastic winter festival and bringing the community together! Thank you to PotashCorp for funding an important community event: Wintershines!

To each of our The Princess Shop volunteers who helped bake, organize, setup and takedown the event.

And lastly, but surely not least, to each of YOU in the community who came to sample, vote, and enjoy an evening of sweets for such a great cause. You are helping us bring graduation, scholarship, and mentorship experiences to more Saskatchewan women than ever before. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! All of !the proceeds from the event were given back to the Princess Shop!

Our next major event is our 9th Annual Glass Slipper Benefit on April 7, 2016. Join us for an evening of good fun, good food, and giving back to the community. We'd love to see you there!

All love,

The Princess Shop Team
