140 Smiles, 140 Accomplishments, 140 Lives Changed for the Better

posted by The Princess Shop    |   October 2, 2018 15:36

by April Donauer

The trees are already looking bare, we have a couple of snowy days under our belts, and grad season seems like a lifetime ago. All the same, we would like to take some time and reflect on our 2018 Princess Graduates. They are strong, they are intelligent, they are brave, and they are GRADUATED. Here at The Princess Shop, we feel a sense of pride when we send out the dresses on grad days. Each dress belongs to a girl who has reached a truly special milestone and each girl has had her own journey. We celebrate each journey and congratulate each achievement. 

This past grad season was a truly remarkable one. What made it particularly special was that it could not have been possible without the support of our community. We had volunteers help mend dresses, volunteers assist in appointments, businesses that donated funds, hair services given, make-up services given, photography services given, and dresses donated. All this to say, The Princess Shop had been able to give back because so much has been given through the support of our community. Thank-You.  

One of the most breathtaking moments of grad season is when a graduate chooses her dress. Whether it’s sleek and low profile or jeweled and dramatic, each dress represents celebration. It represents a unique story, a unique style, and an exciting beginning. The celebration begins when the Princess Graduate comes to pick out a dress. Sometimes there is excitement in her eyes, sometimes fear. Excitement because she is planning to go all out, fear because she has never worn a dress and maybe it won’t look good on her. Nothing replaces the look in her eyes when she has found the dress. She is no longer fearful because she KNOWS she looks beautiful in the dress.

This year we had 140 dress appointments, 140 looks of nervous excitement, 140 success stories that represented 18 different Saskatchewan communities, and 140 Princess Graduates who have celebrated their achievements (in style). 140 represents the number of dresses that were worn to graduation celebrations this year but The Princess Shop is more than dresses. This year, our graduates received $32,000 of scholarships. They worked hard and are now off on new adventures. We also have new graduates connecting to mentors, connecting to community. 140 represents the number of dream chasers and hard workers.

Although back the school rush has faded, the pumpkin spice craze is upon us, and grad season seems like a lifetime ago, we want to say a special thank-you to our 2018 Princess Graduates. Thank-you for allowing us to be a part of your day. Thank-you for allowing us to sit next to you while you flashed looks of delight in that mirror when you saw how beautiful you looked. Thank-you.

From a Volunteer's Perspective: The Princess Shop Experience

posted by The Princess Shop    |   September 10, 2018 14:34

Stepping into the role of Volunteer Representative is not what you would expect, or at least in comparison to my own previous volunteer experience, not what I expected.

It's been more than - and better than - I envisioned. Every week I attend a weekly meeting with a group of successful and motivating women. We're surrounded by beautiful donated gowns, shoes and accessories. We brainstorm, goal set, get off track for a moment and laugh, and are constantly re-evaluating every aspect of the organization to ensure we have a positive impact on not only our Princess Graduates but our community as whole. By the end of the meeting, were assigned chosen tasks to meet our goals and out into the community we go. We fundraise, network with donors and sponsors and build lasting relationships. 

While this is happening, me and other Volunteer Representatives along with individuals from our list of 'Helping Hands', conduct dress appointments which is by far, one of the most fulfilling duties. We simply consult with the graduate about her wants and needs for grad day and beyond. We outline the different programs The Princess Shop offers and ultimately attempt to be the bridge between adversity and prosperity. Once graduation season arrives, it's a whirlwind of wearing many different hats. We go from being a graduate's personal assistant to being a team player of the salons were in and out of. 

Every so often, were pulled aside by a graduate who feels graduation and everything that comes with this major achievement, would not be possible without the organization. Rather it was through lending her a dress, providing her with a scholarship or simply being a mentor in her life, we've alleviated hardship in more ways than one. We're thanked and told that we should be proud of the work we do. And when the graduates acknowledge our work and display appreciation for all that we do, it is only a bonus. Because I can tell you, that is not why myself or our team, volunteer for The Princess Shop. 

I volunteer because of everything I just shared with you. Though it is only a glimpse of the expectations and experiences that come with the position. If you read between the lines, it's quite easy to recognize that this organization pushes you to become better for yourself and the community. It's a doorway to seeing what community means and what our community offers. It's a way to feel empowered through empowering other women. It further develops various life skills that one utilizes in their everyday life. Skills such as Communication and Leadership skills. And it overall provides you with an experience that changes your life while changing others' lives

Chelsey is one of a group of amazing individuals who make The Princess Shop a magical place through their passion and dedication. Does this sound like your kind of crew? We are looking to fill some more roles and would love to have you if this post spoke to you. Click here!

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!

TD’s Women in Leadership Sponsors the Fairy Godmother Program

posted by The Princess Shop    |   November 16, 2016 14:39

The Princess Shop is proud to announce a new partnership with TD's Women in Leadership, who have joined in on the impact as the Fairy Godmother Program’s sponsor!

“Where confidence and capability meet opportunity.”

Women in Leadership is not only a promise, but an actionable initiative and key objective by TD Bank to enhance the organization’s diversity by expanding leadership opportunities for women. From their website: “At TD, women have access to valuable learning experiences, ongoing support for career goals and a powerful network of like-minded colleagues.

TD has extended this key objective outside of their organization by sponsoring and donation to organizations with shared values, like ours! The mission of the Fairy Godmother Program is to provide Princess Graduates with the needed self-awareness, self-confidence, motivation and live skills to accomplish their goals. The Fairy Godmother (mentor) provides encouragement and support in bringing these ambitions to reality.

On Tuesday, November 15, 2016, TD Bank held a special event to present sponsorship for the Fairy Godmother Program! The event was held at Lucky Bastard Distillery’s beautiful space, it was catered, with complimentary beverages. The best part was that the room was filled with brilliant women from TD Bank branches from across Saskatchewan, not to mention the men in attendance there to celebrate Women in Leadership!

TD invited The Princess Shop’s Executive Director, Karen Robson to speak about the impacts our programs make. In addition, a Fairy Godmother match, Kaya and Zoya got to share with the room how the Fairy Godmother Program has impacted their lives and brought new perspectives.

To cap off the evening, several TD staff members put on a surprise fashion show showing off some of The Princess Shop’s amazing donated dresses! They all had a blast strutting their stuff on the red carpet runway!

TD’s sponsorship of the Fairy Godmother Program will provide learning opportunities and experiences for the matches to attend together over the course of this year’s cycle. The Princess Shop is proud to share values with TD Women in Leadership, and is excited to continue to encourage new perspectives, growth and learning through mentorship! 

Executive Director, Karen Robson

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!

Pretty Little Shoes Gives Back to The Princess Shop

posted by The Princess Shop    |   August 23, 2016 19:32

 

 

 

Pretty Little Shoes creates an at-home shoe shopping experience while giving back to local women’s charities such as The Princess Shop! Pretty Little Shoes is an e-commerce initiative founded in January 2016 by Baillie Janex with majority of sales being online or through home Shoe Parties. Baillie is passionate about giving back to the community and that’s how Pretty Little Shoes became involved with The Princess Shop! For every 150 pairs of shoes sold through Pretty Little Shoes home parties a brand new pair of shoes will be donated to The Princess Shop to be used by Princess Graduates participating in The Dress Program

 

We have asked Baillie a few questions about Pretty Little Shoes and her involvement with The Princess Shop:

  

Q1: Tell us about Pretty Little Shoes

 

Pretty Little Shoes is a home and ecommerce based shoe company located in Saskatoon. The bread and butter of Pretty Little Shoes is the in-home shoe party.

 

Shoe parties are so much fun - we bring a selection of shoes for you and your girlfriends to try on, purchase, and take home the day of the party. What better way to spend an afternoon/ evening then trying on shoes with your girlfriends?! In addition, we also offer one-on-one shoe shopping appointments, shopping via our online store, and we also have Facebook and Instagram so our customers can stay in the know about all things Pretty Little Shoes.

 

Currently we carry ladies shoes from size 5-11, but also carry a small selection of little girl shoes. We offer a wide variety of shoe styles (boots, heels, flats, sandals, booties), and carry a wide array of brands.

 

Q2: Tell us about yourself! Why did you wish to be involved with The Princess Shop?

 

I am an entrepreneur, student, runner, friend, and volunteer. I love the flexibility that my business allows me to have. Each day is a different schedule and brings something new - which is good because it keeps me on my toes. :)

 

When I first started Pretty Little Shoes, it was a priority of mine to find a local organization that we would be able to give back to. I know a couple ladies who are Fairy GodMothers with The Princess Shop and they have expressed how much they love their roles, so The Princess Shop was an obvious choice. Not only is it wonderful that they provide graduation attire for the Princesses, but offering mentoring to these young ladies is very encouraging.

  

Q3: How does The Princess Shop benefit from your involvement?

 

I'm very excited to be involved with The Princess Shop! Every woman deserves to have a day that they get to dress up and feel gorgeous and if we can help by providing a pair of shoes, then I am so happy to be involved. Pretty Little Shoes is excited to donate one pair of shoes to The Princess Shop for every 150 pairs of shoes that we sell. We also gladly accept donations from our customers/ hostesses that we pass on to The Princess Shop.

 

Q4: What was your graduation experience like? Your dress?

 

To be honest, I wasn't overly excited about graduation and the dress up experience. I used to say I was going to wear a brown paper bag to my graduation. But when I went dress shopping and found a dress that actually looked good on my tiny frame, I got so excited! It was a gorgeous strapless, navy blue dress with ruching.

 

Graduation was always something that scared me a little - fear of the day, fear of what would lie ahead, and saying good-bye to many friends who I had become so close to. But my graduation day was close to perfection. I have so many fond memories of that day, whether it be the ceremony, getting dressed up, or spending the day with my friends.

 

Q5: If you could give Princess Graduates a word of advice, what would it be?

 

If I could give a word of advice to Princess Graduates it's this - Work hard. Dream big. Have faith. Don't settle. Success isn't just handed to you - you have to work for it. Surround yourself with people who inspire you, lift you up, encourage you, and love you just the way you are.

 

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Good things can happen if you stay within your comfort zone but great things happen if you step out and see what else is out there.

 

The Princess Shop is grateful for local initiatives that can give back to our Princess Graduates in unique ways! You can find Pretty Little Shoes online, to shop or book a home party, at www.prettylittleshoesonline.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/PrettyLittleShoes. You can also find them on Instagram @pretty.little.shoes and using the hashtag #PLShoes. Check it out for back to school shopping and you will also be contributing to a good cause, The Princess Shop!

The Princess Shop's Graduation Emergency Essentials Kit

posted by The Princess Shop    |   June 24, 2016 16:45

Here at The Princess Shop, we are making our way through our 9th graduation season with 130+ Princess Graduates in our Dress Program! We have seen amazing growth in numbers of women accessing the Dress Program, which lends out the dress and accessories to graduating women in financial and/or social need. Furthering that, for Saskatoon Graduates we can set them up with hair, makeup, photos, limo and corsage (Thanks to these amazing sponsors) to provide the enhanced graduation experience to mark the accomplishment.

Over the past 8 years (this year not included) we have supported 628 women for their graduation day. That means 628 women have attended their graduation feeling proud of their accomplishments, and equivalent to their peers. 628 women who might not have attended their graduation celebration at all, if not provided the opportunity to be a part of The Princess Shop's Dress Program.

That being said, we know a thing or two about graduation days: the good, the bad, and the ugly. 

Whether you're reading this and you're a graduate, an escort, a parent, friend or a family member of a graduate, this is for YOU! We all want the big day to go smoothly, but we know anything can go wrong. It is our goal for our Princess Graduates to have a stress-free graduation day! Having been a part of so many graduates' big day, and accompanying them to hair, makeup and photography appointments, we have learned a lot about quick fixes, and how to be prepared in case of anything - and we would love to share this with you! 

Here is The Princess Shop's Graduation Emergency Essentials Kit:

  1. Safety Pins - these are a MUST for the day. They can temporarily fix anything from a shoe strap to a dress strap. They are small and can be thrown in a clutch easily! 
  2. Mini Sewing Kit - these are found at the dollar store and contain needle, different colour threads, mini scissors and a thimble. We love these kits because they are compact and affordable!
  3. Hooks & Eyes - throw a couple of these into the sewing kit. These are important pieces at the top of a zipper to take the stress off fastening the dress.
  4. Tide to Go Pen - a miracle worker for stains!
  5. Baby Wipes - an alternative to the Tide to Go pen. Last year a Princess Graduate got RED lipstick on her WHITE dress... Baby Wipes to the rescue! A nice gentle solution!
  6. Crazy Glue - the dollar store also has mini crazy glue tubes which is amazing. If there is something a safety pin can't fix, then saftey glue is your best bet!
  7. Bandaids - for when those heels start to hurt!
  8. Extra Bobby Pins - in case a piece gently falls out of your amazing updo!
  9. Q-tips - to gently touch up makeup throughout the day
  10. Granola Bar/Protein Bar - this one is important! During big, stressful days we tend to forget to eat or lose our appetite. However, keeping in mind that your energy needs to be sustained through the whole day, from hair and makeup to photos, to walking across the stage to receive the diploma.
If you want to go all out (and if you have the cargo room), you can add these items:
  • Oil blotting sheets
  • Mini can of hairspray
  • Ballet flats so you can really hit the D-floor!
  • Fashion Tape (double-sided tape)
  • Mini deodorant stick
Other words of wisdom? Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated; most graduation days take place end of June, which is known to be hot! 
 
Oh, and don't forget your banquet/prom ticket!
 
Happy Graduation Day to all!
 
Much Love,

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,
