Makeover a birthday treat

Marilyn Walter of Conway received a special birthday present – a makeover experience.

Marilyn’s son and daughter-in-law, Jeremy and Emily, had the high bid on the makeover, which was a silent auction item offered during a Conway Symphony Orchestra Guild fundraising event. Emily was the previous winner of the makeover experience and thought it would make a nice gift for Marilyn.

“This was a really special gift,” said Marilyn.

Several businesses/individuals donated items for the makeover.

Golden Girls store manager Lisa Croson assisted Marilyn with selecting clothes. Mary Johnson, a stylist at Studio West, did Marilyn’s hair. LimeLife by Alcone Beauty Guide Breana Hernandez worked with her on makeup.

“I was extremely excited to receive this birthday gift,” said Marilyn. “I enjoyed the entire experience and meeting new people. I’m loving my new clothes and new haircut and I’ve been wanting to try LimeLife skin care and cosmetics.”
