TULSA — Prom season is one of the most anticipated times of the year for teens across Green County.

Some students are already busy shopping for dresses, but this one special night can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Pinks, purples, blues, and greens or that classic black dress.

We call it the Prom Boutique.

You'll find nearly every color and style at union's high school.

On Thursday, students went shopping for the perfect dress -- all for free.

Everyone has prom dresses sitting around so we wanted them to get reused," Prom Boutique chair Jessica McNeil said.

A dress that's been worn comes with so many memories it's just priceless. When a student's walk in there are racks and racks of dresses.

Each student is searching for that perfect fit because as most of us know, the dress, shoes, and jewelry can quickly add up.

"What's the point of buying a $300 dress for one night when you can just come here and get one for free," Union student Rebecca Dumonteo said.

The prom boutique started out as a closet inside the high school with no changing rooms and now dresses fill a whole room and organizers created an atmosphere to make it feel like an actual store.

"There is nothing like hyping up your best friend, giving them a dress to put on and making them feel good about themselves and them doing the same thing for you," Union student Halie Stokes said. "Nothing compares to the feeling."
