Yesterday was our 6th Ambush and it was a very special one! When we received an email about Olivia, an inspiring woman who has recently overcome challenging obstacles in her life, we were excited to give her a pampering day of beauty that she’ll remember. Olivia is a busy mom and is currently trying to re-enter the job market. Our goal was to give her some extra help in creating a professional look with hair, makeup and clothing. We were lucky enough to have a $200 gift-card donated from an organization to Lane Bryant in Monroeville Mall, so Olivia could get a few great pieces started in her work wardrobe. We had a great time getting to know this wonderful lady and hope she had just as much fun with us!
A special thank you to Dan Speicher, who volunteered as our Photographer yesterday. He did such an amazing job and we can’t thank him enough for helping us out – we hope to work with you again soon!
I also would like to welcome our new Stylist to the Ambush Team — Colleen Boyle, soon to be Colleen McKeever this October! Colleen is a student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh where she studies Fashion/Retail Management. Thanks so much Colleen for all of your help with yesterday’s Ambush, we can’t wait to have you do more with us!

Next we were off to Lane Bryant in Monroeville Mall to take advantage of that gift-card. Olivia was able to get some great new items for her wardrobe and she looked amazing!
