Day 26 of Dress the rainbow

Dress the Rainbow with Sheryl Garner

Day 26 of Dress the Rainbow in foliage green with my good friend Sheryl Garner. Longtime readers might remember Sheryl from this past interview from a couple of years ago. Sheryl just moved to Utah from Washington, DC where she taught elementary school in inner city DC for a number of years. Though she has loved her time as a teacher and valued the challenges she’s experienced as a teacher, her real passion is social change, and more specifically, changing society through education and I have no doubt she will change the world through her passion and insight. Sheryl for President! I value Sheryl as a dear friend with an optimistic and hopeful perspective.

Day 25 of Dress the rainbow and giveaway

COURTNEY OF CENTS OF STYLE
We’re half way through the rainbow, folks and it’s getting awfully pretty! Have you joined in yet?! Day 25 of Dress the Rainbow in kelly green with Courtney Brown of Cents of Style. Here’s one girl who has her priorities straight and I’m a big fan of the empowerment she and her movement/company are encouraging among women.

Here’s how the story goes: She started this fashion accessories company in 2007 here in Utah after realizing that her love of fashion was more than just daily dress up fun. As a stay at home mom, she decided to focus some of energy on creating a place for women for women to find fun clothing at a fraction of the cost. It is now her belief that when you LOOK good who then FEEL good and then you have the power to DO good. Today, Cents of Style is a multi-million dollar company that employs 25 other women. How incredible is that?! I’m a big fan of anyone who provides opportunities for people (in this case women), to provide and empower. Call me a fan!

To celebrate Dress the Rainbow, Cents of Style is giving and AND a friend the opportunity to win a $500 shopping spree! That’s $1000 total!
Head on over to @HouseLarsBuilt on Instagram to enter!
