The Power of Pink

We are excited to host an event at the Vancouver store October 4 for a cause that is very important to us here at Sweet Spot Skirts.  You are invited!  
Jill did a great job introducing it (we love the Top 10 list!):

Hi everyone,
Below is an invite to an open house fundraiser at Sweet Spot Skirts in Vancouver on Thursday Oct. 4th from 6 – 8 p.m. I went into the store looking for a cute pink skirt for our walk in November. I got talking with the clerks and was explaining why my skirt must have a lot of pink in it, and they asked me what I was doing. I told them we are raising money for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure event in November. The owner, Stephanie Carroll, said that her mother had died from breast cancer at age 36 when she was 12 years old. This cause is something near and dear to her heart as well, and did we want to hold a fundraising event in the shop? Of course I immediately said yes!! Stephanie also offered a beautiful pink quilt and matching pillow for a raffle. The quilt is made from the leftover pink scraps from the skirts. The idea is if you win you could give it to a breast cancer survivor in your life (or you could keep it too….it is gorgeous):

I love my skirt; there are so many I liked I had trouble deciding which one to get.  Here is the top ten list of why you will love these skirts and why you should come to the party:
1. Dozens of fabrics to choose from; you can even have them custom-made for special events (Portland to Coast, etc) 
2. They come in several sizes, including children’s and plus sizes 
3. They are reversible, so 2 skirts in one! 
4. They look great over bike shorts, running tights, swimsuits 
5. If you gain or lose weight, simply move the snap over 
6. Snap on tulle bar available for extra frou-frou 
7. Makes a great Christmas gift 
8. Feel cute and flirty no matter what your age 
9. Good anytime you want to CYB in style!! 
10. Free wine and snacks, plus surprise boob-themed treats 
I hope all of my local friends will be able to join me on the 4th. Please pass on the invite and post on your facebook page! If you can’t attend the open house, or live too far away, skirts can be ordered online up through Oct. 4th. You must tag this event under the comments section so we get the credit.


So come support a good cause and a fantastic local business!

You hear this saying day in and day out. You see this phrase printed on everything and used in a variety of ways to make “a point.” As I embark on my 48th birthday this month, I have been thinking about what this really means. I have watched with a heavy heart, as my friends have been drug through nasty divorces, death of loved ones, job losses and a variety of challenges and struggles. Each day at Sweet Spot™ Skirts we try and appreciate the days as they occur. Building a company from the ground up in one of the biggest recessions since the great depression is not an easy task….but as the saying goes “life is short” and this is our passion.


We love watching life from the edge that we exist. Looking out at the world from “that” cliff, we can spot so many women who love our skirts, so many retailers excited about our new product, and our Sweet Shenna quilts bringing a bit of comfort from those suffering from cancer.  The list goes on and on…  Read about our Sweet Shenna Quilts

It is only when we reach that edge, that we can fully see what great things have come from our passion and hard work. 

Live without expectations, without fear

and with a great amount of PASSION!

This is the Sweet Spot™ way!     Enjoy your day

Cheers to Birthday Month!
