Fore Front Fashion

Toast your girlfriends event

By: Laura Serino

If you’re headed to Freeport this weekend to indulge in a little retail therapy (or to thrift it up), make sure you swing by Jill McGowan (56 Main Street) on Saturday for their “Toast Your Girlfriends” event from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Bonus: Jill herself will be there, so it’s the perfect chance to ask for some styling help directly from the designer.  My sources tell me that some bubbly might be there too.  You’ll also receive a 20% off coupon in case you’re looking to treat yourself or start checking gifts off your holiday list.

Jill McGowan manufactures all her clothing right here in the USA – many of them in the great state of Maine. Her brand started small with just one product: the classic white shirt. With a background as a pattern maker in the menswear industry, Jill was on a mission to improve the fit and quality of women’s clothes. Her flagship store, based in Freeport, is an ideal place to pick up fundamental pieces for your wardrobe. Learn more about Jill here and check our her facebook page for more about the event.
