Shop Til You Drop! 

You can be the lucky "fashionista" who gets to choose a fabulous designer outfit from designer, Gianni Bini, valued up to $300 from Dillard's at

University Town Center.

You and twenty (20) of your friends are invited to "Shop til you drop!" The store will open its doors at 9:00 am so that you and your friends can shop privately before the store opens at 11:00 am. You will be able to shop the entire store, from clothing, jewelry, handbags, shoes, housewares - it's all yours for two hours. It gets better!! Dillard's will be giving back to the Service Club of Manatee County 10% of total sales from that morning for the children of Manatee County.

Thank you Gentry Ford, store manager, and thank you Dillard's for your generosity to our community.
