Way Out West
As a new group in Tallahassee, we are striving to do everything we can to feature our local businesses and what they’re up to. We got a chance to do just that when we got word about an event Way Out West was hosting at Hotel Duval. Not only was the event fresh and entertaining, but it was for a great cause. All the profits from the show went to American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodges.
Way Out West, a “progressive western wear” shop in downtown Tallahassee, which has also been named one the south’s “top 10 boot-iques” is bringing a little Texas to Tallahassee. As a fairly new brand in Tally, WoW, as it’s become known, is steadily growing and expanding their customer base. The store has an inviting, and caring feel that seems to be the magic with the loyal customers. From offering cold drinks to everyone that walks through the door to offering some of the best quality customer service in the area. Way Out West is a solid Tally startup that should see continued success. We’ll have more on the “Boot-ique” in the coming weeks.
For this event, WoW, teamed up with Hotel Duval to host the “Sparkles & Spurs Fashion Show”. We decided it would be a fun event to go and check out, all while contributing to the American Society’s benefit. From the moment I stepped onto the prestigious ”Level 8” of Hotel Duval, I felt the same “down home” feeling that you get when you walk into Way Out West. It’s great that they were able to translate that vibe to an event at a totally different venue. The guests ranged from all walks of life in Tally and seemed to be excited to be apart of the event. I immediately was approached by several organizers who thanked me for coming to the event. The event really encapsulated the positive and friendly environment that WoW seems to have mastered.
I wondered into the Horizon Ballroom to find live music by the Gypsy Darlings greeting everyone as they entered. The fashion show began with a brief introduction of the event and details about the proceeds benefitting the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodges. Way Out West’s Owner Whitney Anders was then introduced and the models began to showcase the clothing provided by none other than, WoW. The outfits consisted of numerous country western stylings put together by Whitney herself. We saw around 50 different stylings before the event came to an end.
For our first introduction with Way Out West we were definitely impressed and excited. We feel that Whitney and the folks at WoW get that in order to be successful in an area such as Tallahassee, events like this one are key. We hope other startups and businesses in Tally have similar events in the near future. We are glad to introduce Way Out West as a Proudly Made In Tally Company! We hope to create a growing relationship with WoW and keep track of their progression in Tallahassee.
