FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Alaina Marie Launches New Gingham Print Bait Bag with Ten Percent of Proceeds to Benefit Local Women’s Charity, the Junior League of Portland, ME
Portland, Maine – Alaina Marie, noted local designer of handmade clutches inspired by a lobsterman’s bait bag, believes in doing well by doing good.
For the second consecutive year, Alaina Marie will launch a new print as part of her Spring collection, pledging ten percent of proceeds to the local women’s volunteer organization. These limited edition bait bag clutches and wallets will come in gingham print in two color options, Serenity and Rose Quartz. These bait bags will be available for purchase from April 1, 2016 to May 31, 2016 at the Alaina Marie store at 332 Fore Street, Portland, ME 04101 or online at www.alaina-marie.com.
“I’ve always loved gingham patterns because of the effect they can achieve. Depending on what colors are paired, the pattern can take on a different look and feel, making it completely versatile, yet remaining a classic. The two colors I chose for the launch of this collection are the 2016 Pantone colors of the year, making this collection the perfect fashion statement to bring in the spring season,” shared Alaina Marie.
The limited edition wallet will retail for $50 and the limited edition clutch will retail for $70. If purchased together, the set will retail for $100. Ten percent of proceeds will benefit the Junior League of Portland, Maine, and funds raised will support the League’s mission to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women, and improve our community through the effective action and leadership of over 270 trained volunteers.
“Working with the Junior League of Portland has been and continues to be an honor. They are a wonderful group of poised women who are devoted to affecting change in our community. I am thrilled to see these women not only supporting my brand, but wearing it proudly. I have loved the opportunity to be able to support their mission and create lifelong friendships along the way,” shared Alaina Marie.
