Check out western styles for May’s Missouri Beef Days at new fashion show March 30


Featuring a variety of fashionable western wear from casual rodeo styles to fancy cowboy bling, the new Missouri Beef Days Fashion Show will showcase plenty of options from local merchants to help patrons prepare for all MBD events. The added event, presented by Craig Lehman Shelter Insurance, is set for Thursday, March 30 at the Bolivar Elks Lodge, 1999 W. Broadway. Doors open at 5 p.m. with the show starting at 6 p.m. Tickets are $7.80 online at missouribeefdays.com and include small bites, drinks, and a gift bag.

“The Missouri Beef Days Fashion Show is a classic example of seeing a need and meeting it,” co-organizer Lisa Lehman noted. “There was so much excitement last year, but the most common request we heard was from people wondering where they could get attire for all the Missouri Beef Days events. This new event should help a lot of people with that. Plus, it will just be so fun!”

Models from nearly a dozen local boutiques and shops will show off attire including boots, hats, jewelry, accessories, jeans, t-shirts, dresses and more. “People can relax after work, enjoy some snacks and take note of fashion options ready to make Missouri Beef Days even more fun this year,” says co-organizer Taylor Hillenburg. “It really is going to be an entertaining night to shop ideas and support our local stores. Get your girlfriends together and get your tickets.”

Both Lehman and Hillenburg encourage purchasing tickets now as they are limited, and sales could close before the event.
