Prom season is approaching fast and there is a win-win way to find the perfect one-of-a-kind prom gown. Visit Treasured Gowns, in Sapulpa, to see their amazing selection of prom dresses. You could win fantastic prizes in their monthly draw, and there is no need to buy a gown to enter.
Some of the prizes include tickets to your school Prom, one free tuxedo rental, deluxe tanning, dinner for two at a local restaurant, hairstyling, and discounts on items purchased from the store.
Treasured Gowns is owned and operated by a mother and daughter team, Susan Bowren and Tiffanie Riggs. Susan brought Tiffanie into the business and never looked back. “Her fresh, modern eye has brought the store to the forefront when it comes to the latest formal gowns and fashions.”
The Hollywood look is the vogue in dresses right now, with heavily beaded fabrics in flattering earth tones, rich lattés, browns, bronzes, golds and greens, with asymmetrical hemlines, asymmetrical trains and graduated hems. The fabrics are weighty, soft, and swinging. They hug the body, move with you and flatter the form. The clothes at Treasured Gowns are very “fashion-forward,” meaning they are chic couture, plus you will also find unusual shoes and accessories to match that perfect dress.
Choose prom gowns ranging from the Cinderella look to the sassy and elegant, from the fancy to the chic. Whatever the look, you cannot fail to find the perfect dress from the enormous stock at Treasured Gowns. As Susan Bowren explains, “This diverse choice ensures that dresses are chosen that are age-appropriate and sophisticated.”
Another important consideration is that all gowns purchased at Treasured Gowns are carefully recorded and registered. This ensures that only one style of gown is ever sold to each school, including even the same style in a different color. So, you are assured to own a unique dress for your prom. Another benefit is that no appointments are necessary to try on gowns, and no lengthy disclaimer paperwork has to be signed either.
Dresses are available in all sizes and styles, so if a style appeals but it is needed in a different style, the dress can be custom ordered. Just some of the brands on the racks include Riva, Le Gala, Party Time, Paris by Tony Bowls, Cassandra Stone and Mike Benét.
Treasured Gowns is different from many other boutiques in that they keep so many dresses in stock. “One lady drove all the way from Oklahoma City, “ says Bowren, “to purchase a Casa Blanca wedding gown that other stores would have charged her $250 to bring in and try on, plus she would have had to wait weeks. We had it in stock and she just came over and bought it the same day.”
Bowren prides herself on the one-on-one personal service and small town family atmosphere at Treasured Gowns, which often leads to long-term relationships with clients. Bowren smiles, “Girls begin shopping with us for their prom gowns and later for wedding gowns.”
Treasured Gowns also carries special occasion dresses for all ages and sizes, as well as some dressy-casual jackets, skirts and pants.
Expert fitting and alteration services are also available. Susan’s husband, Rick, assists men with their tuxedo fitting needs. They also welcome you to bring your garments for alterations regardless of where you purchased them. Alterations are available for ladies and mens clothing.
The store is open Monday to Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday open until 7 p.m., Friday until 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
