Lucerne Pin-ups is the name of an association recently born in La Lucerne-d’Outremer, in the South Channel. Originally, fans from the 50s.

Second World War, rockabilly…

During the Second World War, pin-ups (the word was used for the first time in 1941) enjoyed great success, not only among the population, but especially among the military, notably American GIs.

In the 1950s, their name was inseparable from the rockabilly period: vintage dress, hair with retro curls, bright red lips… Since their appearance, they have remained a symbol of charm and eroticism, regularly brought up to date.

Moments between women

It was while attending a pin-up performance not far from Bayeux (Calvados) in March that Sandrine Desmottes and Jézabel Pinson imagined the creation of an association in La Lucerne-d’Outremer, in the Bay of Mont -Saint Michel.

The two neighbors in fact noted that there was none of this kind in the area.

Our objective was therefore to create an association within which we could share moments of joy and sharing between women and participate in festive events.

The two co-presidents presented their project to a dozen participants on Tuesday evening. “Even if it is a little late to register for events linked to the 80th anniversary of the Landing and the Liberation of Normandy, we are considering these first months of existence as a way of making our association known before participating in events. festive or commemorative events in the communities where we are invited. »

See you this summer

With this in mind, several activities are planned, such as the organization of a picnic on the grounds of the La Lucerne restaurant. “This will be an opportunity to get to know each other and organize a photo shoot to illustrate the calendar that we wish to publish,” indicates Sandrine Desmottes.

The Lucerne Pin-ups will also make an appearance during the municipal festival on Sunday July 21 in the afternoon to present the association to the general public and perform a choreographed dance, under the leadership of Sarah Riant.

A pin-up evening is scheduled for Saturday September 14 at the community hall before bowling, planned for the end of the year.

In addition to the two co-presidents, the association’s office is also made up of Mathilde Follain and Marina Lethimonnier, co-secretaries, while Tiffany Letellier and Lydie Lenfant share the position of treasurer.
