I have been meaning to do a blog on this for quite some time and finally found some free quality "blogging" time to do it. Wow!! This was truly amazing!! I had been avoiding to be on TV like the plague & leave it to Lisa Martinez of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership to get us to go LIVE, and she did it!! Lol. It was more like a statement than a request to do it but, I am SO GLAD I DID, so THANK YOU LISA!!!
The promotion was for "Bring a Friend" which was a great promotion that the Downtown Sacramento Partnership Organization created for Downtown Sacramento businesses & Old Sacramento businesses. The idea was to shop local & shop small to help support small business, so if you went alone you would only receive 10% off but if you brought a friend you AND your friend would BOTH save 20%.
The promotion went on from Thursday, September 13 through Saturday, September 22 and it definitely generated a lot of great traffic, sales & promotion. What I liked too was that a lot of different small businesses (especially in Old Sac) participated and U.BE.U. FASHION along with Mea Vita boutique were able to do a short segment on it on Good Day Sacramento.
Downtown Sacramento Partnership Organization is a wonderful Outreach Organization that helps market & promote small businesses in the Sacramento area. They have been a blessing to all of us struggling entrepreneurs in coming up with great ideas like this to help keep us all afloat. From U.BE.U. FASHION, we thank you so much!!

Still Summer weather in Sacramento but eventually we do get the cool afternoon & evening breezes.
This is a great lightweight layering effect. The jacket is made locally and has a ruffled, french-cut design, great for wearing over some cool leggings & a strapless tube tee.
Comfortable & Nicely Casual.
Rae Rock of In2Win Records and Justin Suit Jones COO/Manager of In2Win Records found our little "mom & pop" shop boutique located in Old Sacramento, CA. When I asked Justin how he came to find us, he said he found us via the world wide web. He and Rae both really wanted to represent local fashion in Sacramento and we were lucky enough to be picked!! :-)
Rae Rock's influences in music are: Michael Jackson & Prince (which I love!!) and amongst others, DJ Quick, 2Pac, De La Soul, Chuck D & Notorious B.I.G. His current location is right here in Sacramento and he travels back and forth from Sac to Oak Park, CA.
After talking to him after the show I was very pleased to find his humbleness and eagerness to help others, especially local talent. He also supports charities & Non-Profit Organizations as well. But along with all the humbleness he does carry a great amount of Enthusiasm & Energy which always proves to be a great success in every avenue of an artist's journey.
U.BE.U. FASHION showcased "Club-Wear" that was modeled by X-Quisyte Dance out of Chico, CA & Stevie Lynn of In2Win Records.
Featured outfits included Dress, Skirt & Pant Looks with Shoes & Accessories. All outfits can be found at U.BE.U. FASHION Boutique @ 1028 2nd Street, Suite C, Old Sac, CA.
Thanks again, Rae & Justin for choosing U.BE.U. FASHION Boutique for your wonderful "Fashion in the City" Fashion Show. We had a great time!!
