FORT MYERS, Fla. (February 29, 2012) – Shell Point invites guests to Brighten the Day and Light Up the Night at the community’s annual Fashion Show and Luncheon hosted by Shell Point Retirement Community on Friday, March 16, from 12pm to 2:30pm. Tickets for this popular annual event are $35 and guests will be treated to a delightful lunch while previewing the latest spring and summer fashions from Bell Tower Shops including Saks Fifth Avenue, Talbots, Cache, Draper’s and Damon’s, Banana Republic, GAP, Patchington’s, Trader Rick’s, and more.

“The Shell Point Spring Fashion Show has always been a popular event for our residents and the surrounding community,” said Lynn Schneider, assistant vice president of sales and marketing for Shell Point. “Of course, the fashions are always the main attraction and this year, more than 30 women of all ages will be modeling the current trends and fashions, which will include a variety of spring and summer wear, cruise and resort styles, casual day and evening wear, plus updated looks for the office.

“Guests will not only enjoy a delicious lunch while previewing the gorgeous fashions, but will have the opportunity to shop our Fashion Boutique. Local vendors will have unique and exquisite items on display for purchase before and after the show including a variety of accessories, gift items, fashions, purses, and jewelry that will be available for purchase.”

Each guest will receive a special gift bag as well as the opportunity to win exciting door prizes. “We are giving out some amazing door prizes this year and all of our guests will have multiple opportunities to win, but everyone who attends will walk away knowing that they helped to support a very worthy cause and that makes it even more enjoyable,” said Schneider. Proceeds from the event will go to support the Alzheimer’s and Hope Hospice programs at Shell Point which are open to the public.

The fashion show will be held in the Shell Point Auditorium located on The Island at Shell Point. Tickets are $35 and must be purchased in advance by calling Mary Franklin at (239) 454-2152.
