SUMMIT, NJ - The Junior League of Summit (JLS) "Spring Fling" event, featuring new and gently used men’s, women’s, and children’s Spring clothing as well as housewares, will be held March 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the JLS Thrift Shop.

Despite the latest snowfall, Spring is just around the corner, and the event offers an ideal opportunity to find great Spring fashions. This year’s inventory is packed with high-quality seasonal clothing for men, women, and children, typically 50% less than full retail prices.

“We hope people will stop by and check out our wonderful spring selections,” said JLS President, Jolie Steppe, “With the warmer months approaching, shoppers can come find some great deals for their families. And, at the Junior League of Summit Thrift Shop, you are supporting the local community, as all of the Shop’s proceeds go directly back to the JLS and are reinvested in the form of grants, funding for community projects, and scholarships.”
