The Glades Starts a Prom Tradition

The Glades is ready for prom, just in time to help its young shoppers get themselves prepared for their big night. Said Maria Cooper, marketing manager at the Glades, “The prom phenomenon, imported from the US, is spreading like wildfire. Most of our local schools and colleges now hold prom events, allowing students to celebrate the end of their exams and party with their friends before heading off to university, a gap year or their new career.” So the center put together Prom Nights, its inaugural prom event.

The event centers around the Glades’ Style Pod, where shoppers can try on their fancy frocks and tuxes with guidance from the center’s Style Advisor. They can also get advice on accessories, hair styles, shoes and jewellery.

The Glades is also offering £1,000 to one school or college to make its prom even better. All the center wants is for entrants to describe how their school would use the money to make an awesome prom. Prom goers can also enter to win a full style makeover, including dress or tux, hair styling, makeup and accessories.

Speaking of money for prom, Hulen Mall in Fort Worth, Texas recently heard back from the high school that won first place in its My School is Cool program last fall. The $5000 the school won went to turning its prom into ‘A Night of Elegance,’ with creative decorations, including a dome over the dance floor complete with speakers and LED lighting.
