JOIN THE CLUB Want to know who’s going to be running Dallas in the next 50 years? Look no further than the rosters of Dallas’ oldest young professional and social clubs. { PHOTO: LAURA BUCKMAN }

By Sarah Bennett


or Dallas’ finest young professionals, the fun doesn’t end after graduating college. It only revs up with the opportunity to join the city’s premiere social clubs for young adults: Slipper and Cotillion clubs for the ladies, and Calyx, Dervish, Terpsichorean, and Idlewild clubs for the men. Sure, some of the men’s clubs offer lifetime membership — such as Idlewild and Calyx — but generally speaking, these clubs are for the city’s young and vibrant. However, that doesn’t mean they lack a strong history. “We were founded in 1898 as a club for single men who decided they needed to learn the two-step and waltz,” Terpsichorean Club president-elect Alex

Jodry said. “Our club name is derived from Terpsichore, the Greek mythological muse of dance and creative motion.” Typically, each club hosts a slew of casual to semi-formal events throughout the year, from crawfish boils to cocktail mixers. Yet each one ends the formal season with a black-tie event in the winter. “I’ve lived a lot of places, and Slipper’s reputation held water,” Slipper Club board member Madeline Littrell said. “I’ve never met such a group of welleducated, classy, philanthropic women.” Philanthropy, as it turns out, is a key element for many of the organizations. “These days it is so easy for people to get wrapped up in their own world that we often forget to be mindful of the needs of others who are less fortunate,” Cotillion Club gala chair Katlin

Beecherl said. But that’s just the goal. Cotillion focuses on Jonathan’s Place, which provides a home for abused or neglected children, while Slipper Club votes on a new beneficiary annually. “My favorite part is being able to support Jonathan’s Place and spend time directly with the kids through activities like movie nights and decorating cookies at Christmas,” Cotillion Club president Jordan Kragen said. All the while, the city’s young adults are building new relationships and creating a network for life. “I’ve stayed on the board for four years because of the girls,” Slipper Club president Susan Conway said. “It forced me to meet new people and branch out, and it just stuck.”

THE CLUBS Calyx – 1914

Calyx began with 400 members. Annual events include the spring party, members’ golf tournament, and an autumn party to commemorate the TexasOU game.

Cotillion – 1942 Originally, the club was founded as the Junior Art League of Dallas to organize dances for Army officers stationed in the Dallas area. The costume ball was implemented in 1944, and the name officially changed to Cotillion Club. (See photos from its masquerade ball on page 12.)

Dervish – 1928


Traditionally, its most notable event is the New Year’s Eve Ball in December.

Idlewild – 1884

Founded with the purpose of debuting young Dallas ladies into society, the club has only withheld its annual ball during World War II. Since then, every ball has been held in late October or November. (See photos from this year’s ball on our website.)





Slipper – 1934

Founded by Idlewild debs to return invitations to Terps members, the club did not begin its philanthropic efforts until 1996.

Terpsichorean – 1898 Terps, as it

is casually known, began with 16 members. Since the 1930s, the annual ball has been held in January.

Ken’s Man’s Shop Turns 50

By Meredith Carey


alking in to Ken’s Man’s Shop at Preston Royal Village, you notice the small things: the cheery hellos from John behind the counter and Carolina at her desk, the pair of Buddha cufflinks on display, and the hearty handshake from Kory Helfman, son to Ken himself. “People come in and say it reminds them of ‘Cheers.’ It’s a place where we know your name. And besides knowing your name, we know what you like to drink, what you do for a living, and most importantly, how you like to be tailored,” Kory said. Now, celebrating its 50th anniversary, the contemporary men’s retailer is moving into the future, with a focus on social media and an online presence, while still keeping the same commitment to service that has kept the store in business all these years. Ken Helfman, who after 60 years in retail still helps clients to find the perfect look, has always had a heart for his customers. Ryan Long, who has been shopping at Ken’s

How to Prepare The Perfect Spring Tea By Sarah Bennett


pring is a time for graduations, bridal showers, and baby showers. Luckily, throwing a tea can be the perfect answer to each event. But how do you host the perfect tea at home that’s chic and not kitschy? It’s all in careful selections. First, know your demographic. “Younger people prefer more flavored teas and fruit blends, like white pomegranate, which is high in antioxidants,” said Highland Park High School graduate and Single Origin Teas owner James Orrock. “Older people prefer more traditional teas like Earl Grey or English breakfast.” Be sure to note the season and any dietary needs of guests. Orrock recommends avoiding Earl Grey in the summer, for example, because the bergamot increases the skin’s sensitivity to sun. “Most people don’t know that that flavored tea does have gluten,” Maudee’s Café and Tea Room owner Sharon Yarbrough said. Want to punch it up a little? Add in some adult beverages. “Tea cocktails are really popular at the moment,” Orrock said. “You can do a jasmine green tea with gin, or some people do a chai bourbon to get the spices.” If you need to keep your tea underage-appropriate, however, you can always go the iced-tea route. “Around springtime in Texas when it’s 100 degrees outside, you don’t always want to drink hot tea,” Orrock said. He recommends freezing floral teas such as hibiscus, which makes a bright fuschia color, to make ice cubes, and then putting them in your tea. But what about the rest of the menu? Ultimately, it’s all in the size. “It should all be small,” Yarbrough said. “Whether you do scones or little muffins, make them mini. It’s harder to eat a regular-sized scone when everything’s balanced on your lap.” The final key to throwing the perfect tea is to remember the classics. “Certainly, have cucumber sandwiches,” she said. “Everyone expects to see cucumber sandwiches at a tea.”

Richard Hall of Gainesville, Texas. The groom is the son of Ms. Patricia Jelliffe of Bedford, Texas, and Mr. Charles Jelliffe of Naples, Fla. He is the grandson of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Ferneding and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Jelliffe. The bride wore a gown of re-embroidered lace and washed silk organza designed by Watters. Her cathedrallength veil was custom designed by Nardos Iman and was trimmed entirely in the vintage Chantilly lace from the bride’s maternal great-grandmother’s 1931 veil. She carried a bouquet of pale pink and ivory roses secured by the wedding handkerchief of her maternal grandmother. Assisting the bride as matron of

honor was Mrs. Marguerite Dumont Lenderman.
