Sherri Hill Trunk Show
Please see our Q&A Regarding the Trunk Show Below for more information
Normally our shows include designer Sherri Hill, runway/modeling coach, Lu Sierra; talent coach, Bill Wolfe; attorney/interview coach, Bill Alverson and normally a professional headshot photographer. The photographer changes each year.
Due to the nature of the event, an appointment is needed to attend. You are always welcome to call “last minute” to see if there is availability.
The appointment with each coach is one hour and you can book up to two hours with each coach. If for some reason the coaches do not sell out, you are allowed to book additional time. These appointments are one-on-one. You are allowed to take someone into the appointment with you. Taking another coach into an appointment is discouraged and must be approved by our Trunk Show coach.
The appointment to design your gown/talent/fun-fashion typically is one hour. We do our best to finish within an hour, but it isn’t always possible. We do try our best to not book someone you are competing directly with in the hour time slot following your appointment.
The hourly rate for each coach is $175.00 and is paid directly to that coach upon arrival at the appointment.
At times, we may require a deposit to book your appointment for a gown/talent/fun. The $250 fee is applied to the cost of your gown/talent/fun-fashion once a selection is made. To formally place your order a deposit is required. For additional information regarding your deposit please contact the store at 706-596-2003.
If you fail to cancel your appointment(s) with any of the coaches at least 10 days prior to the appointment, you are responsible for the full payment.
Depending on the time of year, our Trunk Show can take place at a host hotel. If it is during our off season, we often try to have the gowns at our retail store. This is all confirmed via email about a week before the show.
Unfortunately, no. Our Trunk Shows book quickly, so it is always best to secure your appointment as soon as possible. Priority appointments are given to guests who book couture gown appointments. If you wish to book with our coaches, but do not need a couture appointment, we are happy to add you to the wait list. If our coaches have available appointments a week before the Trunk Show, we will reach out via email to people on the wait list.
If the Trunk Show is in Columbus, Georgia we partner with the DoubleTree by Hilton. We normally have information which we can provide to you so you can get a group rate. Once you book your trunk show appointments, you will be added to our email list and the information regarding the hotel will be sent.
We encourage you to come with an open mind. We will have a lot of sample dresses for you to try and the standard sample sizes are normally between sizes 2-6. We encourage you to try on the samples (but not required) and from there, we will work to build your dream gown. We will draw inspiration from the fabrics, colors and beading of different samples to create your custom couture outfit.
If you are trying on Sherri Hill Little’s, the sample sizes are normally 4-8.
Our factories are busier during certain times of the year. The normal delivery is 12 weeks. If you need something sooner, please discuss this with someone from our company. The amount of beading, materials and fabrics can affect the delivery time.
Our Trunk Show samples are not available for purchase unless the event is advertised as a “sample sale”. However, we do stock couture gowns that are available for immediate purchase.
The email that you receive prior to the Trunk Show outlines everything that you need to bring.
This event is designed to allow the person who booked the appointment to try on the gowns, therefore models aren’t needed.
