Congratulations to Sarah F., winner of our 2015 Homecoming Pinterest Contest!
To help make sure all of our Roo Girls are ready for Homecoming Season, we held a 2015 Fall into Homecoming Pinterest Contest. Since mid September, Rissy Roo's Pinterest fans showed off their favorite Rissy Roo's Homecoming 2015 dresses by creating a "Fave RissyRoos.com Homecoming Styles" Pinterest board. They pinned their favorite dresses from RissyRoos.com onto their board to show us what they're obsessing over for their back to school dance. Entrants had to pin at least 20 items from RissyRoos.com, tag the pins with #RissyRoosHomecoming and build up their follower base.
Girls were not only judged on following pinning and board creation directions, but also on building up the pins and followers of their board and showing us just how excited they are for Homecoming through their pins. The girls put their pinning skills to work, pinning beautiful dresses, shoes, and accessories all from our website. While we loved all of the boards, we could only pick one winner. Sarah's Pinterest board stood out from the rest because we could really tell how dedicated she was to showing off her pinning skills. She pinned 31 Rissy Roo's images in total, and gained 217 followers on her board! Sarah chose Scala 48501 as her winning dress, which she'll get to wear during her Homecoming on October 24, 2015. Congrats again, Sarah! We hope you love your dress!
Thank you to all of the participants for creating such beautiful Homecoming Pinterest boards! Stay connected to us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to learn about future contests and giveaways. There are always more surprises to come!

Another Rissy Roo's Prom 2014 Contest has come to a close, and this was an especially fun one! We are so excited to announce the winner of our Ultimate Promposal Contest...Emily!
Rissy Roo's Ultimate Promposal Contest Winner
In our Ultimate Promposal Contest, we asked all of our Roo Girls to share their 2014 promposal for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to RissyRoos.com using hashtag #ARooPromposal. Over the course of a week, our Roo Girls showed us such fun, quirky and totally creative ideas for a promposal...from easy ideas to incredibly elaborate...and only 1 winner was chosen as the Ultimate Roo Promposal on March 28th.
That Ultimate Promposal was the so silly (and romantic!) prom proposal from George to his girlfriend Emily that you see above! We were so blown away by George's creative and so funny...and of course, very bold...idea! Congrats, Emily (and George)!
While Emily's promposal was our winner, we had so many great ideas come in that we wanted to share them all with you. Check them out below. With Prom 2014 getting closer and closer, we hope they give you some ideas for your own prom proposal!
Promposal Contest Entries
The promposal that started it all! We saw this prom proposal idea that Missy posted of her son asking his girlfriend to prom with lots and lots of balloons and immediately fell in love and decided to go on a search for the Ultimate Promposal! Of course, we gave Missy's son a $50 gift certificate to give to his date to sweeten the deal. In case you were wondering, she said yes!
This promposal from Jennifer was super sweet! Two ways to use the 'fish' idea in a promposal - "out of all the fish in the sea, will you go to prom with me?" and "You are the Swedish Fish in the Sea." Both so cute!
We even had a video promposal! Taylor sent this video in of her boyfriend, Spencer, asking her to prom in the middle of a huge audience at a basketball game. That definitely takes a lot of guts - cudos to you, Spencer!
Sarah entered this creative prom proposal that was created on her iphone with app icons! For those that don't want to do something too over the top, this is a super easy idea, while still being able to show your creativity.
Heather submitted this picture of her boyfriend, Taj, getting his friends involved for her promposal. What great friends!
More balloons with Jennifer's promposal from her boyfriend! She wrote:
"Went to school all moody and came home to being one of the luckiest girls ever ;-) I have the best boyfriend in the whole wide world :-) this time I'll say this from the bottom of my heart...I LOVE YOU ENDLESSLY AND NO ONE CAN REPLACE YOU! :-* thanks for everything boo <3."
These are all such great promposal ideas - thank you to all of our Roo Girls who entered the contest and shared their prom proposals with us! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay tuned for more contests to come soon!
Our first Prom Preview Party, held on Friday, January 31st was one super success story! Held from 6pm to 9pm in our store, there were models, giveaways, free gifts, music and all of the latest styles of dresses from the top designers to shop for!
The day started early for our Roo Girls, as they were pampered and dolled up for the big night by the stylists of local Salon Oh! located in Ventnor, New Jersey. The talented team applied trendy make-up and gorgeous prom curls and up-dos to our beautiful models before they put on their prom dresses!
After all the prepping, the pink carpet was rolled out for the Prom Preview 2014 Party, the prom playlist was pumped up, and the store was full of girls ready to check out the latest trends for prom 2014! With so many designers and styles to choose from, finding the perfect dress was fun and exciting! Every dress purchase included a free pair of shoes up to a $50 value, and as the girls walked throughout the store, they were given light-up sunglasses and rings, Rissy Roo's exclusive pink LED lip gloss, candy, and raffle tickets to win awesome prizes! The drawings included a bag, shoes, a $50 gift certificate and last but not least...A FREE DRESS! Our winner, Gabrielle Sear had the ultimate prom princess moment when her name was announced. She dazzled on the pink carpet as she posed with a big smile in her chosen gown, Sparkle Prom style 71301!
From all of the amazing the freebies to the fun, every girl was a winner at our first prom preview party!
The night was huge success and we hope the next few months are full of more dresses, trends, and prom fun for all of our Roo Girls as prom gets closer and closer! Don't forget if you can't visit us to play dress-up, just call or check out RissyRoos.com for all of your prom needs!
