In brief

Spring fashions blooming at North Bend Dressbarn

When spring makes way, it rubs off a recognizable happiness and spirit of renewal. Lois Maathuis, district sales manager for Dressbarn in North Bend, says that same spirit is evident in women’s fashion styles for the spring season this year.

“Spring fashion for 2008 is all about being unrestrained, having fun and just feeling happy,” she said. For Maathuis, hot styles for the season include prints, citrus colors, knit dresses and sun dresses, baby dolls, wood and shell accessories, and new jackets.
