Cabi Show

Ladies, as busy women--whether with our careers or our kids' crazy schedules--we often don't have time for ourselves, let alone time to shop for clothes! But every now and then we need new pieces to refresh our wardrobe. And, if you 're like me, the last place you want to go is the dreaded mall where you spend half of your time parking and leave frustrated. Well, there is a real solution to this! Say goodbye to stores and the mall and head on over to my alternative store. I'm having the mall brought to my store with Michelle, a trained personal cabi Stylist who will present the Spring 2017 cabi Collection just for us! Trust me, you'll never want to go back to the old way of shopping. I will have sips and savories, so just come relax and enjoy a special night out with the girls. Mark your calendar...I can't wait to see you!
