Carmel Arts & Design District Businesses Support Breast Cancer

Research & Awareness
Select businesses host special offerings and opportunities to donate to the
Susan G. Komen Indianapolis Affiliate during the month of March

CARMEL, Ind. — For a limited time, patrons of the Carmel Arts & Design District can shop for a cause in the Arts & Design District.

Beginning March 1st, select businesses in the Arts & Design District are banding together to support the Indianapolis Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation by donating a percentage of sales throughout the month of March and offering special give-aways and drawings for customers.

Leading the charge is Rachel Davidson, owner of PillowTalk, (23 E. Main Street) a lingerie boutique in the heart of the Arts & Design District. PillowTalk is celebrating “Bras for the Cause” throughout the month of March to help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research as well as the annual Race for the Cure event on April 17th.  Davidson is donating 10% of total March profits to the Susan G. Komen Foundation Indianapolis Affiliate.

“Shoppers can feel good knowing their spending power is going toward a great cause,” says Davidson. “Breast cancer has affected many lives, and we want to help contribute to finding a cure while celebrating and honoring those individuals who have been touched by this illness.”

To thank those individuals choosing to shop at PillowTalk and contribute their dollars to the cure, give-aways and promotions are offered each day including one free eye exam from Lauck & McLean Optometry (30 1st Street SW), a major sponsor for Bras for the Cause.  Other give-aways are gift cards to Joe’s Butcher Shop and Fish Market (111 W. Main Street, 110), Eberjey fine fabric wash, special edition “Pink Sugar” Skinny Dip candles adorned with the signature pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness, and much more.  Shoppers can also enter to win a $100 gift set from Ambre Blends, locally crafted, organic bath products, as well as one-of-a-kind pendants from local jewelry artist, Megan Kromer.

PillowTalk shoppers can feel good about other purchases made at select businesses in the Arts & Design District during March as well.  When a PillowTalk receipt is presented, or Bras for the Cause is mentioned at time of purchase, both Mary & Martha’s Exceedingly Chic Boutique (111 W. Main Street, Suite 120) and Holy Cow Cupcakes (545 S. Range Line Road) will donate 10% of profits, while Circle City Tuxedo (651 N. Range Line Road) will donate $5 for every purchase!  In addition, Blue Egg Gallery (111 W. Main Street, Suite 140) will donate 10% of all sales during the month of March.

The Simply Sweet Shoppe (30 N. Range Line Road) is offering 15% off entire purchase and Artisan Masterpiece (19 E. Main Street) is offering 20% off regularly priced items or 10% off sale items when shown a receipt from PillowTalk at the time of purchase. A PillowTalk receipt will also get patrons of CK Designs (5 W. Main Street) 10% off a product or a hair service, 10% off the bill at Serendipity (2 W. Main Street) and 10% off product at 28 Star Studio (25 W. Main St.).

Donation receptacles are available at select Arts & Design District businesses for those visitors wishing to make a contribution to the Susan G. Komen Indianapolis Affiliate directly.
