We are thrilled to once again provide running clothes to the Junior Milers program, which provides entries, support, and coaching to teens from local organizations such as the King Street Center, the Boys and Girls Club, and the YMCA as well as school teams in order to run the Vermont City Marathon. Check out this news story from NBC5 and see the kids getting their gear at Dirt Chic and Ski Rack!
The first annual FASHION SHOW to benefit the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Progam is taking place on Saturday, March 18th 2017 at the Burlington International Airport.
Dirt Chic has been asked to participate this new event that embraces the values of love, empowerment, connection, sensuality, and fun, but we need your help to do it!
refugees.org/field-office/vermont/We're raising $300 to contribute to the fundraising effort. All money raised in conjunction
with The Fashion Show stays local in Vermont and supports the programming
of The Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program (VRRP).
The VRRP needs some extra help this year. Last month a drunk driver crashed into one of their offices. Fortunately, no one was seriously inured, but the damage to the building was substantial.
Donations will be collected at Dirt Chic at the register beginning Thursday, January 12th. Any contribution you can make will help, even the leftover change from a purchase.
You can see our 3 looks and outfits from other local businesses at The Fashion Show. Learn more about The Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program at http://refugees.org/field-office/vermont/

Every year the Junior Milers program, part RunVermont, organizes a team of local teens to run the Vermont City Marathon. Junior Milers provides entries, support, and coaching to the teens who come from local organizations such as King Street, the Boys and Girls Club, and the YMCA, as well as school teams. For the last two years Dirt Chic has been proud to join our neighbors at Ski Rack in outfitting the team. We collected donations of athletic wear from our consignors and opened the store to the Junior Milers to take whatever gear they needed. . We are so proud to be a part of such an amazing organization!
Our semi-annual 1/2 price sale begins 3/1/2016! Everything in the store with the exception of new consignments will be 50% off until 3/14
Our first annual Coats & Coffee event took place last Sunday at August First and it was a huge success! So many people came to the store to donate coats,bedding, and toiletries and many others donated items from their consignments. We cannot thank our customers and consignors enough for their generosity! August first served coffee and hot beverages to order as well as an assortment of cookies, muffins, and croissants. We were able to give away several racks worth of coats and sweaters,scarves, gloves and hats to men, women, and children who really needed them in a safe and welcoming environment. We can't wait to begin planning our second annual event next year!
The deals just got even better! From September 1 through September 14 everything in the store is 50% OFF (with the exception of items with dark blue tags). The sale includes clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories! Find fabulous deals on Women's, Men's, Maternity and Children's clothes. The designer section and already discounted $5 rack are on sale too! Outfit yourself for fall, get summer items for next year, pick up some great outfits for the kids, and do it all where it's cheap to be chic!
Inventory taken in during the first two weeks of September will not be included in the sale.
We have decided to make some changes to our consigning policies. We have always tried to make consigning an easy and painless process, but we're reaching a point where consignments are becoming too overwhelming to manage on a daily basis. We used to take consignments from 10:30-5:30 Monday through Saturday and 12:30-4:30 on Sunday, no appointment needed. We've decided to stop taking consignments on Mondays and Tuesdays, to allow us time to catch up. And for the month of August, we will not be taking ANY consignments at all. The current rate of intake is simply not sustainable in the long run, and we need to schedule some time to get all incoming inventory entered, tagged, and out on the floor for sale, without crowding the racks so much that shopping becomes a strenuous activity! So again, we will NO LONGER be taking consignments on MONDAYS and TUESDAYS, and will not take any consignments during the entire month of AUGUST.
We hope you understand our need to change the consignment process.
