With the first day of spring just 11 days away, now is the perfect time to ditch the bulky sweaters and shop Talbots’ latest limited-edition fashion collection benefiting Dress for Success, a wonderful nonprofit that provides women in need with the tools to achieve economic independence.
For the past few years, the Hingham retailer has partnered with O, The Oprah Magazine, creating a fun and fashionable women’s clothing ensemble with 30 percent of the net proceeds going to the nonprofit.
“This is the fourth year of our incredible partnership!” Deborah Cavanagh, SVP of marketing at Talbots, told the Herald. “We have raised over $4 million for Dress for Success, which has in turn, helped over 100,000 women get back on their feet so they can succeed in both work and in life.”
Women like Anahi in Massachusetts. “I never expected to face my own economic downturn and to lose everything I had worked so hard for. So when I first came to Dress for Success I was extremely depressed. The dignity with which the volunteers treated me went a long way to helping me restore myself, my dignity, self-esteem and sense of belonging. Thank you.”
There are many stories of women whose lives are changing for the better thanks in part to people who support this worthwhile charity collaboration. This latest collection is available in all Talbots stores and online.
There are fun and versatile pieces to choose from, like comfy black pants with a cool side stripe, a soft striped black and white top and other mix-and-match pieces you can dress up or down.
There’s something for everyone in the five-piece collection and with every piece you buy for yourself or a loved one you’ll be uplifting and empowering women here in the Bay State and across the country.
