“Trolley Night” fans in Memphis got a triple treat this past Friday (April 27) at K’PreSha Boutique on South Main. The National Association of Black Female Executives in Music & Entertainment, Inc. (NABFEME) hosted a champagne filled business networking Soirée at the boutique..   Dubbed Rhythm, Reading & The Runway, the event was overflowing with talent and professional smarts and was designed to attract consumers while creating a marketing vacuum for local businesswomen and their products. Members and supporters of NABFEME were delighted to participate in this fun filled, motivational occasion.

Sprinkled with a variety of entertainment and showmanship, the event drew crowds from Arkansas, Mississippi and all over Memphis.  A talented kiddie dance group called “The Edge” quickly stole the hearts of the Main Street shopping crowds and the musical performances by Jina Govan and Tanisha Ward were on-the-spot crowd pleasers!  According to NABFEME Founder Ms Johnnie Walker, the gathering was a smashing success.  “We recently launched a new program called BEEP, “Black Entertainment Entrepreneur Power, said Walker.  The purpose of the program is to connect different businesses and show them the crossover potential of their products and services, while they compliment each other and share customers.  Our Rhythm, Reading & The Runway concept brought singers, dancers, authors and models under one roof to accomplish a two goals, build consumer awareness and increase sales. We invited the ladies to the boutique so that they could network, be entertained and shop at the same time!” 

Memphis based authors Megan Mottley (Glamour Girl), Gwen Harmon (Love Songs), Shayna Rattler (Higher: 5 Power Principles for Entrepreneurs), Jae Henderson (Someday Too) and Eve Alexander (10 Commandants of Love) presented their books and shared their self-publishing business models with attendees.

Local Walgreen’s Pharmacist, Rhonda Boutte who owns her own cosmetics company, Pouts and Wink, treated attendees to mini-makeovers.  The evening concluded with a dazzling fashion display on the catwalk featuring the latest spring and summer fashions by K'PreSha Boutique.
