Some of my favorite childhood memories are going back to school after the holiday break with all my brand-new outfits. Showing off your personality in your wardrobe is important not only for kids, but for adults too. Chambersburg has many places to go where you can spice up your wardrobe, or, in the spirit of the holiday, donate clothing.

The start of a new year typically means the making of new memories. J&B Bridals & Formals can be the perfect place to find a snazzy new dress or suit for those upcoming special occasions.

For a place a little less formal but still looking snazzy check out the Franklin Clothing Outlet. They have consultants ready to help pick out designs and fabrics best suited for you. Once you pick everything out they will tailor and hand deliver your garments. What could be better?

IMG_8158Lyons and Company is another great, local store to refresh your wardrobe. Lyons offers famous national brands in sportswear, tailored clothing, accessories and shoes. In addition, they offer the finest in formal wear to purchase or rent and distinctive corporate business wear.

Satisfy the fashionista in you with a trip to Here’s Looking at You. Shop for fashionable women’s clothing in a relaxed environment where personal service is priority. With brands like Tribal, Nic & Zoe, FDJ French Dressing, Renuar, Iguana, Tianello, Neon Buddha and many more, you’ll find just the look you’ve been searching for.

Although some of us are fortune enough to buy brand new things year after year, not everyone has that luxury, and being a part of a community means to help those around you. Act II North is a great place to take your gently used/new unwanted clothing to make a few bucks! It’s is also known for having nice stylish, brand named clothes, shoes, and outerwear. Check out what they offer to expand your wardrobe, and fill a space on your #ShopSmall Sweepstakes card. Easy, right? Now you’re one step closer to winning big!

While getting paid for unwanted things is always great, what are the holiday’s without giving back? You could also donate your unwanted clothing to Dress to a Tea, to help brighten not only the day of another family, but their closets, too.

Make the most out of this holiday season not only for you and your family, but for all the families in this community!
