A one-stop-shop for all things maroon, the annual Aggie Moms Boutique is coming back to Aggieland April 12-13, coinciding with Family Weekend.
Hosted by the Federation of Texas A&M University Mothers’ Clubs, a chartered Constituent Network of The Association of Former Students, at the Boutique, Aggie Moms' Clubs from across the state will be selling a variety of Aggie-themed goods including clothing, jewelry and décor.
"If it stands still long enough, an Aggie mom is gonna paint it maroon and sell it," said Peggy Nolan, Federation president and member of the Dallas County Aggie Moms' Club.
The Boutique runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, April 12, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, on the second floor of the MSC in all three ballrooms and in the hallways that connect them. Admission is free.
"Just because you’ve seen it once doesn’t mean you need to pass on [attending Boutique]," Nolan said encouraging Aggies to check out the event featuring wares sold by 46 Clubs this year. "Every year is new and different in merchandise. And it's a must see for every freshman family, especially. If your child is on a victory lap there is merchandise for graduation and birthdays."
The major fundraiser of the year for many Aggie Moms' Clubs, last year’s event helped enable more than $750,000 to be given to A&M students in scholarships or to student organizations.
Family Weekend attendees can stop by the MSC on their way to the Maroon and White spring game at Kyle Field to learn more about Aggie Moms' Clubs and perhaps get some holiday shopping done early.
