NCBI to host evening dress extravaganza

The National Council for the Blind in Ireland (NCBI) is hosting an evening dress extravaganza in its Longford shop on April 20, and will be selling a range of bridesmaids dresses, prom dresses and evening wear for prices as low as €40.

The NCBI will open its doors for the special sale of the dresses, which are all brand new, at its premises in 6/7 Grafton St between 6pm and 8pm and stock is expected to fly off the rails.

The dresses, which come in sizes 8 to 18, will delight anybody with upcoming evening occasions. Stunning labels like Kelsey Rose, Mark Leslie and Alexia Designs are just some of the top notch brands that will be sold at rock bottom prices.

Try this on for size: a Mark Leslie dress that would normally sell for almost €300 will be on sale for just €70. Evening bags and shoes will also be available for sale on the evening.

Annette Telford, Manager of the Longford store says she is expecting a large turnout on the night: “People love coming into the NCBI shop, they know we have great items at great prices and the most important thing is that the funds raised go towards our services to blind and visually impaired people in Longford. We have 502 people with vision impairment in Longford so giving them the best service possible is paramount to us.

“I am looking forward to the event, these dresses are really special. Our staff and volunteers here are flat out getting everything priced and ready to go out and there is a great buzz. People are guaranteed a bargain on the night.”
