About

Minnesota Pageant Dress Shop

raise your crown

Raise Your Crown is a pageant dress and gown shop located in Eagan, Minnesota. We have an inventory of over 500 dresses, and we'll be stocking more and more dresses in sizes 8 and up.

We launched our business in 2017, and we've been building momentum ever since. 

Why We Started RYC

pageant dresses and gowns

Raise Your Crown got its start because we were able to identify a need for a shop like ours. After traveling all around the midwest in search of prom dresses in bigger sizes, we realized how difficult it can be to find dresses for sizes 8 and up.

Once you do find these dresses, you'll probably notice that you're in a back corner of a prom dress store with just a couple of dresses - some that are out of style and some that are missing some beads.

Raise Your Crown's goal is to make shopping for sizes 8 and up fun again. We provide dresses from designers that are relevant in the best styles available. Looking for Sherri Hill, Tarik Ediz, or Rachel Allan? You've come to the right place.

Our Founders

prom dresses

Raise Your Crown is owned and operated by a mother-daughter team - Jane and Olivia. Both Jane and Olivia have competed in pageants, and Olivia actively competes to this day.

At just 17, Olivia had a desire to follow her dream of opening a dress shop. Together with her mom, that dream was able to become a reality.
