The St. Louis U. High Mother’s Club will host its annual SLUHtique, a holiday shopping experience featuring many different items from vendors all over the St. Louis area on Sunday, Dec. 5. The event, which will take place in the Commons from noon until 4:00 p.m., will feature over fifty booths, with items ranging from Jr. Bill tervis tumblers to bows for SLUH sisters. For the first time ever, the SLUHtique has been advertised at all the local girls’ Catholic high schools.

Since admission is free, SLUH guys can come and easily shop for their entire families. Vendors present this year will include several SLUH alumni selling art, clothing, ceramics, and photography services. In addition to clothes, SLUH-engraved accessories, raffle prizes, and gift certificates, the SLUH mom bakers will be baking, boxing, and selling their delicious Christmas cookies. All afternoon, SLUHtique shoppers will enjoy Christmas music and carols performed by the SLUH choir and band.

SLUH mom volunteers begin organizing the SLUHtique about 5-6 months before the event. Proceeds made help to fund in-house services such as pastoral, staff events, mailings to parents, and the graduation dinner, as well as community outreach programs such as the Loyola Christmas Party and the spring break mission trip to Appalachia. Money made from the SLUHtique also goes toward the Marcy Wyrsch fund, which helps offset the costs of special SLUH events like Senior Prom and the Mother-Son Mass for students who need financial assistance.


Mother’s Club president Sharon Hartzler in an e-mail said that the SLUHtique is just one of the important functions each year that is “important to our being ‘Moms for Others.’”
