Why chose J Marie’s for your prom season?  We have the LARGEST selection of prom dresses in Southeast Missouri and register all dresses sold in our store and maintain our promise of not selling the same dress to the same event.  It is important to have a great selection as most girls want to try their dress on and be able to take it home or secure it in layaway that day!  At J Marie’s that is what we do!  We have a selection from size 000 – 30.  We know how important prom is for you and are here to make you look and feel your best!!!
