posted on January 17th, 2019 | in Good Deal, Good Quality

Mardi Gras, prom and sorority formals are just around the corner. Grab your krewe and head on over to our Perkins Road or Jones Creek location, because we have NEW STOCK of formal wear.


Get Fancy at The Purple Cow


With a busy spring ahead in Louisiana you may find yourself in need of multiple formal dresses and outfits. There are many benefits to thrifted living at The Purple Cow.

1. Wide Variety. A partner bridal and formal affairs shop recently donated a shipment of formal dresses to our stores, expanding our stock of formal wear at a discounted price. Because items are donated, we carry a variety of designers, lines and styles from all over!

2. Expanded Budget. Saving money on each piece you buy makes it possible to make the look more “you”. Have alterations made, add accessories, and even buy 2 dresses with your extra budget!

3. Make a Difference. It’s a unique opportunity to help other people while you shop. Finding your look from The Purple Cow simultaneously helps homeless men and women in our community by funding The Christian Outreach Center in downtown Baton Rouge.


Fit For A Queen


Maybe you weren’t planning to attend any balls this year- but you’ll feel like royalty when you see this year’s line-up of beauties at The Purple Cow.
