Back in the Mobile Boutique – starting today!

I hopped in my Style with Char Mobile Boutique this AM and drove to my day job at a real estate software company because today’s the day that I officially kick off the 2018 Mobile Boutique season!

While I’m working on some fun new updates to the boutique, I’m also making sure it’s mobile throughout the project.  So far, I’ve added new benches in the dressing rooms and placed some orders for a few of the other changes that are coming soon.

If you’re in the Fargo area, you’re officially invited to stop in tonight to see what’s been cooking with Ruby Ribbon. I’ll be parked in the Gander Mountain parking lot starting at 5 PM and will be there until about 7:30 PM.  I look forward to seeing you.

Want to stay connected and know where I’ll be?  Just follow me on my Facebook page or the Events tab in my blog.

Find out where you can meet me next!

I took a few minutes today to update all the various events that I have on my calendar soon.
I have several vendor events set up in November, as well as a super fun Winter and Holiday Launch Party with some of my Ruby Ribbon stylist friends. Mark your calendars for one of these events, or get in touch to set up a Ruby Ribbon trunk show with a few of your friends. What’s more fun than shopping with friends and your favorite personal stylist.

It's starting to feel a bit routine

When women come to a trunk show in my Mobile Clothing and Shapewear Boutique, the number one question I still get is “Do you drive it?” It makes me giggle a bit because of course I drive it, how do you think I got there?
21768177_10212627504101638_4368592059402713601_nBut, I understand the intent. It’s 35 feet long and I know that I was intimidated when I first got going with it. As I was driving to a show earlier this week, it occurred to me that after two seasons using a mobile boutique to run my business, driving it has become quite routine for me. Yes, I need to think and plan ahead for my route to make sure I don’t end up somewhere that I can’t get out of, and I’m still a bit intimated backing into a driveway, especially if I have to do it from the “wrong” direction, but overall, I get along fine. (I hope I didn’t just jinx myself).
If the weather holds, I think I still have about two months where I can continue to offer women some retail therapy with driveway parties and girls night out. It’s really a great way to get a few friends together for some fun and fashion (and you of course, get a few rewards and perks). Why not try it?

Join me at Winds of Change

1 bye bye bra 2016 1Join me tomorrow night (May 31) at 6:30 PM at Winds of Change Creative Healing Center in Fargo.
I’ll have my Mobile Clothing and Shapewear Boutique set up in the parking lot and will be featuring my “Bye Bye Bra” Ruby Ribbon cami and showing local women how they can ditch their bra (and the uncomfortable underwires) forever.
I will also have on-trend clothing, amazingly comfortable shapewear and slimming swimsuits there for you to try on! Sizes range from XS to 3XL and I would love to help you add a few new pieces to your wardrobe.
Hope to see you there!

Going mobile again!

This weekend, we took some time to install new batteries in my Ruby Ribbon Mobile Boutique and I am close to kicking off the Season 2! I still need to get the vacuum going in it (no fun!) and restock it with my latest Spring styles, plus find a way to display our new Ruby Ribbon swimwear launching later this month!
I have a Trunk Show and Shopping Party scheduled this week already, and I look forward to sharing Ruby Ribbon with some new women.  I’m working on getting real graphics added this year too and that’s exciting!
To keep tabs on where I’m at for public events, follow me on this page.

Fashion event coming to Fargo

A special fashion event is set for Monday, Oct 24, at 6:30 PM at the Four Points by Sheraton in Fargo.
Hosted by several local stylists, here’s what you can expect:

  • Hear Jodi Wilson from Ruby Ribbon’s corporate offices in California, who will be on hand to help debut the Winter/Holiday wardrobe items and to offer many styling and fashion tips
  • See how these fashions look on women, when several local models — many body shapes and sizes — show you the latest fashion items on women, not  on hangers
  • Get ideas for what to wear every day, or for those upcoming holiday special occasions
  • Try on any of your favorite items to see how they look on you
  • Watch the transformation of a Ruby Ribbon “Bye Bye Bra” cami when we show you a live “before and after” that will take an inch off the waist of the model, plus smooth and shape her

Mark your calendars for this fun event and let your Ruby Ribbon stylist know you are coming.  Wear your Ruby Ribbon if you have it! Bring a friend or two to get sharing rewards.

Yes I drive it, and usually in heels!

When I take my Mobile Clothing and Shapewear Boutique, I no longer really think too hard about driving it. Yes, I often still do a “drive by” in my car to ensure that I’m not going to get myself into a pickle, but for the most part, I’ve become pretty comfortable driving all 35 feet of it.
I still get questions when people hear about it though, and the most frequent question is “do you drive it?” — and the answer is definitely Yes, and (sidenote, usually I’m driving it in heels. LOL)
I use my Mobile Boutique for vendor events, driveway and shopping parties, and for personal styling appointments too. It’s so simple for anyone hosting, since they don’t have to clean their house, relocate their family to the basement, or do much fussing. Just invite a few friends, bring out a few snacks and you’re ready!

Hope to see you in Leonard for the Fall Festival

For many years, Leonard ND has been the site of a fun Fall Festival that features community activities including a rodeo.
I’m bringing my Mobile Clothing and Shapewear Boutique to Leonard next Saturday during the Fall Festival. You can find me in the parking lot of the Leonard Convenience Store on the south side of town. I hope you can find a few minutes to stop in. Look for the RV with the Ruby Ribbon sign.

  • You’ll be able to learn how you can replace those uncomfortable underwire bras and never wear one again
  • You can try on a few new fashions for Fall in sizes ranging from XS to 3XL
  • Or you can just say “hi” and see what’s going on — maybe tell the gals trying on something how great they look
  • If you’re a horseback rider, let me tell you the benefits of riding with a Ruby Ribbon cami
