Charleston’s award-winning florist Tiger Lily is celebrating inspirational women on International Women’s Day on Wednesday, March 8. Tiger Lily is giving away 200 bouquets of daffodils at its downtown Charleston location. Customers are given two five-stem daffodil bouquets – one they keep and the other is to “petal it forward” and give a woman who has made a difference in their life.
A requested $5 donation for the flowers will be donated to Thrive SC, which provides short-term and longer-stay transitional housing, cutting-edge services and holistic resources for women and children survivors of domestic violence.
This is the second year for Tiger Lily’s petal it forward promotion on International Women’s Day. Customers are also encouraged to share photos of the flowers and the inspirational woman in their life on social media using #womensdaychs and #TigerLily.
Thrive SC is also Tiger Lily’s Charity in Bloom recipient. During the month of March, 20 percent of the proceeds from the Charity in Bloom special arrangement will be donated to Thrive SC. The Charity in Bloom arrangement for Thrive SC also features daffodils.
Tiger Lily owners Manny and Clara Gonzales recently started the Charity in Bloom program as a way to increase awareness and raise funds for nonprofit organizations that work to improve the health and wellness of children and families through medical research, education and mentorship. Each month, proceeds from a custom-designed arrangement are shared with a partner organization.
“This is a way for us to support local nonprofit organizations doing great work in our local community,” Clara Gonzales said. “Thrive SC is a good fit for our mission and it aligns perfectly with International Women’s Day – a day to honor the inspiring and influential women in our lives.”
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. It has been observed since the early 1900s.
The Charity in Bloom arrangements are available in four sizes at four price points: $65, $75, $95 and $125. Order online at www.tigerlilyflorist.com or call 843-723-2808.
