For Immediate release from Laluxe Femme- As Prince Edward County’s only exclusively plus size clothing store, we at Laluxe Femme, know that 68% of women are wearing above a size 14. Yet there are almost no boutiques where someone above a size extra-large can buy quality plus size clothing in the region. Even when you drive to a larger community, there are still only one or two options for stores dedicated to plus size fashion. In most cases, plus size people, especially those in small towns have been forced to shop online only. However, that means you can’t try anything on, and we know people want to try on their clothes before they buy them & they deserve to do that in their own community.
That is why we are opening in Picton to give people who wear sizes XL to 4X & beyond more options to find ethically made clothing in their size. We believe in body positivity & self acceptance, you won’t experience any weight stigma or judgment when you shop with us. We welcome people of all ages to come in to test a new outfit in what must be the biggest change room you’ve ever seen. For those who are interested it also comes complete with a floral selfie wall, tripod and ring light. Perfect for sharing on social media and possibly being rewarded with a monthly prize, #LaluxeFemme.
We pride ourselves on curating fashion designers & accessory brands who;
– believe in using eco-friendly & sustainable practices & natural fabrics
– that pay their employees a livable wage & provide ethical working conditions
– that are size inclusive from XL to 4X & beyond
– that are made or designed in Canada
– that are also women, POC and/or LGBTQ owned small businesses – that give back to their local community
Following our grand opening party on December 3, please see the attached invitation, we will be open every day of the week for the month of December from 11 am to 4 pm at 7 Paul Street – Unit # 7 in Picton. Reduced winter hours for January and beyond will be posted when available.
Please stop by any time the store is open for an interview, although it would of course be lovely to get a quick heads up via email in advance. I’d also be happy to reply to an email interview if that works better for you. Thank you for your time!
