It's too cute for words, and it's all for a good cause!

In case you missed it, The Minnesota Children's Museum and Mainstream Boutique have partnered up for a Mommy & Me Weekend this weekend. Simply put, a portion of the proceeds from purchases go directly to the Minnesota Children's Museum. The shopping happens at Mainstream Boutique.

Here's a clip of the fun!

Look awesome? I thought so!

The pairing of the two businesses was an easy decision, according to Development Events Manager at the Minnesota Children's Museum, Becca Stiles-Nogosek. She says,

Mainstream Boutique reached out to Minnesota Children's Museum Rochester last summer to discuss possibilities for partnership and giving back to the community.  Jennelle and her team are great advocates for women in our community so it was a great opportunity to highlight women who are caregivers for kids in our community.  We were inspired by the ‘Kids dress their Parents’ YouTube trend, and we decided to pair that up in order to empower kids to express themselves creatively and connect with their grownups to have a little fun and be inspired by the fashion that Mainstream Boutique provides!

Minnesota Children's Museum Rochester is committed to providing opportunities for playful experiential learning in our community and by empowering kids to make choices, take risks, and think creatively.  It also gives kids an opportunity to change up roles by dressing their grown-ups.  It’s a great opportunity for caregivers to be inspired by their child’s creativity as well!  We are grateful to organizations like Mainstream Boutique who support families through partnership with Minnesota Children's Museum Rochester!

Jennelle Stemper, the owner of Mainstream Boutique, feels the same way. She also knows that this event can empower anyone (and the Museum) who attends. She explains, "We hope this event allows for any child and their caretakers to come into the boutique and enjoy the pop-up activities, have some fun trying on some clothes picked out by the kids. Or, as a "team", tryon on some denim at our Liverpool Trunk Show on Fri., meet our leprechaun on Sat., and just simply be creative and have fun! We will be donating a portion of proceeds Thurs - Sat to the museum to support them in reaching the goal of building a Minnesota Children's Museum in Rochester. We are 100% behind that goal!"

See you this weekend!
