Each theme or category was

aimed toward females and had a variety of clothing and accessories from Lollie.

“Our theme was ‘Mom’s Night Out.’ We really didn’t know what to expect when we go there but this was a totally cool experience. It was hard to find where to put everything but my group was awesome and we created a great display” junior Fashion Merchandising major, Chloe Speranza said.

“Mom’s Night Out” was not the only theme featured. Some other themes were denim and date night.

“We had denim and did a 70s, 80s vibe.It was a lot of fun working with our fellow classmates and putting on a great event” senior Marketing major, Michaela Thomas said.
