Members and guests of the NAPW Suffolk County Local Chapter joined members and guests of the NAPW Nassau County Local Chapter on June 21 for a joint professional networking meeting at Inside the Armoire, a boutique located at 21 The Plaza in Locust Valley. The two Chapters got together to network, mingle, and shop in one of the most exclusive shops on the Gold Coast of Long Island, owned by Nassau Local Chapter member Karen Papadopoulos.

The two NAPW Long Island Chapters decided to hold the joint networking meeting in an effort to further support its members with more extensive networking opportunities.

“We are always looking for new ways to support our members. As a result, it was decided to take networking a step further,” said Suffolk County Chapter President Jennifer Makaw.

Inside the Armoire was the perfect venue for a meeting that was casual and fun, yet informative and functional. Members mingled throughout the evening talking about businesses, families, and summer plans. Many business cards and ideas were exchanged among the attendees.
“Members and guests also spent time introducing themselves and talking about their businesses and goals,” said Jennifer.

During the evening, delicious wraps, salads, and white wine were served and enjoyed by all. Members and guests enjoyed a 20% discount on all purchases and much fun was had by those who tried on the many lovely items available at Inside the Armoire.

Owned by Nassau County Chapter member, Karen Papadopolous, Inside the Armoire is a fine lingerie shop that is dedicated to providing its customers with both exceptional products and customer service. The boutique’s product mix includes swimwear, lingerie, sleepwear, and loungewear, and also carries a post surgical line. It is the perfect first stop for brides.

Store Owner Karen Papadopoulos is selective in choosing the finest collections for Inside the Armoire, ensuring that all of her customers have the best merchandise to choose from. At Inside the Armoire, they believe outer beauty starts at the skin. Whether lingerie, swimwear, or any of their intimate apparel, what a woman puts next to her skin is the foundation for her outer beauty. According to Inside the Armoire, a woman’s inner beauty is only enhanced by the confidence this inspires.

In attendance at the joint networking meeting were:

Nassau County Chapter President Rosemary Serra, Suffolk County Chapter President Jennifer Makaw, Natalia Elson, Stacy Sciabetta, Cynthia Braun, Courtney Molloy, Nancy Davidson, Aimee DiBartomeo-Cody, Stephanie Ethe, Kathy Ruggerio, Karen Papadapolous, Nicole Catanzano, Ellen Meyerson, Sophia Romma, Tanya Phillip, Joanne Behal, Fran Greene, Michelle Lazarus, Debi Silber, Liz Faublas, Sophia O'Neill, and her husband.
