    Without further are the winners!

    Drum roll please!

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone that sent some Cherry Cheer our way over the holidays! It was so delightful to see your posts and you genuinely filled our hearts with cheer and happy smiles.

    Extra Extra It's Cherry Cheer Contest Time

    Let's show everyone our Cherry Cheer!

    In my neighbourhood the lights are up and sparkling trees peek through the windows. Now it’s your turn to shine! We’re inviting you all to decorate yourself with your prettiest Cherry Velvet frocks and show us your socially distant holiday spirit.

    Show us your baking, your lights, your trees, and how you are celebrating. We want to see your prettiest eye shadow, your sparkly jewelry, your megawatt smiles and tons o' Cherry Cheer. Be creative, be festive, and share your photos publically on your own social media pages to spread the Cherry Cheer far and wide.

    Yes, there's more! We've got an impressive line up of prizes. First prize is a dress and crinoline of your choice. Second prize is a beautiful Evergreen Cape. Third prize is one of our new Sophia shrugs. Plus there will be random prizes of gift certificates and Cherry Bucks too. There's lots of prizes to go around so get creative and enter often!

    A few tips: Make sure your lighting is good and your dress looks its best. Please no collages, we want to see single photos. As long as you're showing us your holiday cheer pretty much anything goes.*

  • Stay Dressed Challenge WINNERS!!!

    Published Apr 24 2020 in #staydressedchallenge, Cherry Velvet, Contest, Gift card, Prize

    These past couple of weeks, our #staydressedchallenge has received over 100 entries. It's been a uniquely wonderful experience, connecting with our customers in this way that's brought us so much joy. We've read message after message talking about how great it feels to put on something nice, even when just staying home.

    With this contest, we found even more proof that treating yourself well has a real impact on your well-being. It's a privilege for us to be a part of this - to provide you the frocks that make your faces smile.

    Your creativity, joy, and humour have amazed us and inspired us each day with every new entry. We could not be more thankful for the chance to get to know each of you a little bit.

    Before we jump into the final results, we'd first like to showcase some beautiful entries. We could not possibly include every single entry here (unfortunately), but we most certainly appreciate everyone! Here's a few we think you'll enjoy seeing, though:

    Domestic divas leaving no chore undone...


    Families being brought together...

    Brainy babes having a read...


    Everyone staying hydrated...


    And everyone just having wild amounts of fun! 

    We really recommend you browse the #staydressedchallenge tag on social media, and feast your eyes on the awesome entries!

    And without much further ado... Here are the winners of the #StayDressedChallenge!!!

    In 3rd place... @yyc_mamma_p!

    In 2nd place... @mrspugbaby!


    And in 1st place... @rainywindigo, with a staggering number of entries!

    Congratulations to our lovely, beautiful, creative winners!!

    Experiencing this with you all has been amazing, and we really want to create more engaging contests like this in the future. Thank you all for gracing us with your beautiful, funny, charming, sweet photos and messages, and Stay Dressed!

  • **CONTEST ALERT!!** - #staydressedchallenge

    Published Apr 02 2020 in #staydressedchallenge, Contest, COVID-19, Dresses, Fashion

    These past couple of weeks, the whole world seems to have implemented preventive measures against a certain virus. The order is clear: Stay home (if you can)! Many of us are working from our living rooms and home offices, while others are simply staying home, without much to do.

    Although the initial impulse when staying home may be to relax, perhaps stay in your pyjamas, or wear your hair in a messy bun and abolish pants altogether, we are here to say: Halt!

    Stop right there if you're wearing your nightgown past noon!

    It is known that staying in PJs all day can be a hit to your self-esteem and overall mood. On the other hand, it is beneficial to your productivity (whether you are working from home or doing other activities) to change into day clothes. At the end of a productive day, getting into your loungewear is a great way to relax and "leave work".

    To look after you (because we care!), we're challenging you and all your friends to Stay Dressed - And what's more, there're prizes!!

    So put on a frock, and show us how you rock it at home - be it doing your chores, doing your job, working out, or passing the time in any way (such as doing our coloring pages!)

    And with a dress, you still don't have to put on pants!


    * Take a photo or video of yourself passing the time while sporting a retro-inspired dress/look - Bonus marks for creativity and styling!

    * Share your look via Instagram or Facebook, and tag #staydressedchallenge in your post to be entered into our draw to win 1 of 3 Cherry Velvet E-Gift Cards - You could win a $100, $150 or $200 E-card. Don't forget to nominate your friends!

    **For every 3 nominations, you'll get an extra entry to the draw, so tag your friends and challenge them, too!**

    We can't wait to see your entries, good luck!
