We’re Shouting About the Hush Donation!


Owner of Hush Intimate Apparel, Lisa Nelson

Hush Intimate Apparel of Brighton is making a big noise around LACASA this week.

Lisa Nelson, owner of Hush, recently donated more than $8,000 in merchandise to benefit LACASA’s Cinderella’s Closet shoppers as well as the nonprofit agency’s clients. 

The luxury underclothing will be offered for a nominal fee to high school girls who purchase dresses at Cinderella’s Closet during the April prom season. Certain selections also will be distributed to clients in need at LACASA’s Crisis Shelter.

“After being in business for just over five years,” Nelson said, “I felt it was time to give back to the community that has supported Hush.It is an honor to be able to share what we’re good at with women who may have had to leave everything they have behind.”

Hush provides a comfortable boutique setting where woman receive discreet, personalized assistance to ensure the correct fit of undergarments. 

Advocate for Victims & Survivors

A former General Motors employee, Nelson volunteered for a domestic violence shelter in Oakland County prior to opening her business. “I witnessed first-hand the horrific impact of domestic violence,” said Nelson. “So when I was considering this donation, LACASA was the top choice” 

“We at Hush excited that the young women who utilize Cinderella’s Closet to find something special to wear to Prom will also have the ability to find what they need to wear underneath,” Nelson said.

Dresses at Cinderella’s Closet are $25 and all proceeds go to provide help and hope for victims and survivors of interpersonal violence at LACASA.

Girls who purchase a dress at the budget-friendly boutique are helping in two ways. They are supporting a local charity and aiding the environment by “recycling” gently-used gowns and party attire.
