Holiday shoppers can get a start on their purchases at Boutique, where they will find unique and specialty gifts from vendors to mark off their holiday list. Participating vendors will offer holiday décor, fashion accessories, clothing, jewelry and much more. The fantastic vendors participating will offer endless possibilities to ensure a one stop shop for holiday shopping.
The Junior League of Winston-Salem offers several shopping opportunities to make Boutique accessible for everyone.

The popular kick-off to the event, Girls’ Night Out, will be held this year on Friday, December 9 from 7:00-10:00 p.m. This event will include wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres for attendees to enjoy as they shop the different vendors and bid on a variety of items from the silent auction.

Santa will be at Boutique on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Children are welcome to join for a photo op with Santa and parents can take home a professional photo from the event for just $10.
New this year at Boutique will be a gift wrap station. Students from Forsyth Country Day School will be on hand to wrap gifts for a small donation. Also part of Boutique this year will be the JLWS Dewey’s fundraiser. Dewey’s items ordered from a JLWS member through December 1 will be available for pick-up at Boutique. A portion of the sales will be returned to the JLWS to support and continue the mission.
“We are gearing up for another fantastic year at Boutique,” said Katy Ringeman, President of the JLWS. “There’s no better place to tackle holiday shopping – we will truly have something for everyone on your list. And most of all, shopping at Boutique goes to help fund all of the great work the Junior League is doing in our area.”
The money raised through Boutique furthers the Junior League’s mission to encourage volunteer development, and strengthen and support the community. For more information or to purchase advance tickets to Boutique, please visit www.jlws.org. Tickets will also be available at the door.
