RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Lexie’s Gift is helping teens in need of prom dresses, shoes and accessories in the wake of the closure of Aly’s Prom Closet.

Teens are encouraged to RSVP to Barbie Marcoe at 775-745-2184 for the events:

Lexie’s Gift has stepped in to help local teens who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend their annual high school proms. With generous donations from the community, the local non-profit has opened Lexie’s Prom Boutique and has dresses in all sizes, colors and lengths, as well as shoes in all sizes and heights and accessories.
“The prom is something that most high school students look forward to attending,” said Barbie Marcoe, president of Lexie’s Gift.“We want to help those students who can’t afford to purchase these items outright with a gift from Lexie’s Prom Boutique. Students who have recently shopped with us light up when they find something pretty to wear to prom, and that makes us smile.”
Students should check with school counselors for future shopping dates and locations or visit Lexie’s Gift on Facebook.
