Celebrate was something I had in my mind and really wanted to open for years before it happened. I was a single mom, and a 911 dispatcher. I kept dreaming of what I would do with a bridal and prom store, but that didn't seem to be in my future. After prom shopping with my daughter as a single mom, I was quite surprised at how expensive prom gowns could be. I wanted to have a place where everyone could find the dress of their dreams, prom or bridal, no matter what their size or budget. I was lucky enough to have people in my life that believed in me, and we decided to make this dream of mine happen. We started as a consignment shop, and that was going very very well. We had to move locations several times to accommodate our growth. Eventually, we started carrying new gowns. We brought designers to the area that had never been represented in the Midwest before! We are no longer a consignment store, but we will always offer gowns in every size, and every budget. We travel all over the United States, and have gone as far as Italy to bring the best gowns to the area. Celebrate is proud to offer the best selection of off the rack gowns in the Midwest, last minute dresses are our specialty. However, most of our gowns can be ordered and shipped to us in as little as a week, but some take up to 3 months. We carry too many designers to name in bridal. We are very happy to carry Bill Levkoff Bridesmaid dresses, many many designers for prom, and Jim's Formal Wear for tux rental.
Bling Bling Sisters started over 10 years ago in the basement of the original Bling Sisters. Kim and Lisa definitely had an eye for things that sparkled. They grew their business and moved from a basement, to a location on Utica Ridge Road Davenport. The opportunity came along in 2019 for us to purchase BBS. Since then, Bling has expanded to a store known as the most fun, unique boutique, where we have something for everyone. If you love Bling, don't worry we still have tons of sparkle! If you are looking for clothing and accessories you won't find anywhere else, you found us! If you are planning a trip to Nashville or Las Vegas, have a cruise in your future or are just looking for something to make you feel as fabulous as you are, we are your place. Come on in, we would love to meet you. If you aren't local, no worries. We love to ship. Most of the time, your pretty purchases ship the same day.
Like many of you, we didn't know the impact a worldwide pandemic would have on us, or our small business. In 2020, Celebrate moved to the same new location as Bling Bling Sisters, all under one roof at 3203 Devils Glen Rd, Bettendorf IA. We love our new location, it's bigger and better than either store alone could have ever been.
The best part of being the owner of Bling Bling Sisters and Celebrate are the people we meet, the joy we bring them, and the sisterhood we share with so many of our customers.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know us!
