UM may throw some pretty bad-ass tailgates. But Monc Boutique's tailgate party, celebrating their fall grand opening on Wednesday will dwarf the Canes' school spirit with braids and ikat rompers.
The boutique will open its second location in the Palms at Town and Country as an addition to their Red Road locale and will keep things raging on Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m. But sitting on the beds of trucks, dressed in this season's snazziest getups won't be the night's only guarantee: Monc Boutique wants you to leave the night's event prettier than how you arrived. (Yes, it's possible, ladies.)
Braids from milkmaids to fish tails will be lapsed and pinned at the braid bar by GBS the Beauty Store, while ladies will get a chance to pout and blot the fiercest lip hues of the fall via their lipstick touch-up station. There, you'll even receive a lip reading, where the lines of your lips will divulge your true personality, because reading the zodiac or the deep creases of your hands is, like, so last season.
And, duh, of course there'll be a trunk show of pretty hair accessories courtesy of Headbuds, and blang blang by Lil Miss Miami to match that pretty, little face of yours. Headbuds is even hookin' all the sistas up with a DIY tutorial on how to make those trendy over-sized flower crowns for free. That's right; say goodbye to flushing $35 down the Nasty Gal toilet.
Known for their under-100-dollars price points, Monc will highlight pieces for the fall from the store's local and independent designer names. And here's a little tidbit that will make you grab your bag and start heading towards the door, Town-and-Country bound: all purchases that night are 20 percent off.
Sweet-tooth cravings will be quelled by Ali's Sweet Treats' baked pieces of heaven. And for the heartier alternative, Cadillac Ranch will be there to indulge the crowd in some football grub to authenticate the theme of the night.
So what about you? You ready to bed-hop or what?
