Question Thank you card question

I'm writing a "thank you" card for after a job interview. It is for a retail job, and I only know the interviewer's first name. She is an assistant manager, not store manager so I don't have a way to look it up. Should I write, Dear Manager, Dear Hiring Manager, or Dear (first name). The last sounds too casual to me. I just have c/o (first name) on the address, though. Which is best? Or should I call and ask?

She was really casual through the interview and I get the impression that she might be a little perturbed or something if I used her last name. I doubt they get any thank you cards at all and I already feel uncomfortabe about being seen as overqualified for the job. It's only a side thing - 10-15 hours/week. I'm not used to applying for retail jobs though so not sure what goes.

If you exchanged and used first names throughout the interview, I think you'd be fine with a first name thank you note. Having done my time in retail I can say any thank you note at all will set you apart and be appreciated.
