There is so much activity around TallGrass these days that it's hard to know where to begin. Here are the highlights and you can get all the details in the articles below and in the TallGrass Events link. 

 

First, our "Transitions 10" second annual hair and fashion show was an amazing success. It was our version of New York's Fashion Week that we brought to Evergreen for one night. We wowed 'em all. Thanks and congratulations to everyone involved! 

 

Our 15th Anniversary is coming up on Thursday, November 4, and we're celebrating with a party, so be sure to put it on your calendar and plan to join us. And, join us on every Thursday in October, too, because we are thanking the community by offering the "15th Anniversary Massage" at a reduced cost of $75 and donating 100% of the proceeds to area non-profits. On Thursday, October 14, when Evergreen Animal Protective League is in the spotlight, we'll be holding a dog and cat adoption right here at TallGrass. Come and meet a cuddly new pet to curl up with this winter.

 

If you haven't heard of Shellac manicures - you will! This amazing polish stays on your nails without chipping for 14 days. I didn't believe it until I had bright red put on my nails and they looked perfect for two weeks. Believe me, my hands are certainly not pampered by mucking out horse stalls and working around our ranch. Shellac is fabulous. Call and make your manicure appointment today. 

 

Soldiers who received our care boxes this summer sent letters. Deb Dickinson, a TallGrass team member, read excerpts from them and had us all in tears at our last Information Celebration (that's what we call our bi-monthly all-staff meetings). One soldier wrote that watching another soldier read a letter from a complete stranger was like watching a child open a Christmas gift. We will be sending more care boxes after the first of the year and we would love it if you, your friends and family - especially your children - would write notes to include in the next mailing.  

 

A huge gift was just given to us by you, our wonderful guests. Your votes cast in Denver's 7 A List survey elected TallGrass the Best Day Spa in Denver! We are thrilled and honored with this distinction and want to thank all of you who took time to vote and make this award possible.

15th Anniversary Massage

In Celebration of our 15th year, we are rolling back prices on our 50-minute aromatherapy massage from $90 to $75 on every Thursday in October and donating the entire $75 to select non-profit organizations. The recipients were Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Rocky Mountains on October 7 and will be Evergreen Animal Protective League on October 14, Mt. Evans Hospice on October 21, and Seniors' Resource Center on October 28.

 

It's win-win! Everyone who receives a "15th Anniversary Massage" - you must ask for it by name - for any of these Thursday dates will prompt a 100% donation to the non-profit while enjoying $15 savings on the massage service.

 

On each of these Thursdays, we'll have information about the organizations and representatives may be at TallGrass to acquaint you with their missions. On October 14, when it's Evergreen Animal Protective League's Thursday, there will be a booth in our driveway with pets available for adoption, weather permitting of course.

Transitions 10 Hair & Fashion Trends 
 
Transitions 10 Fashion ShowOur 2nd Annual Fashion Show

exceeded everyone's expectations and blew us all away, once again. "We are so proud of our Salon Department," says team leader and fashion show organizer Jen Schapiro. "Our stylists did an amazing job, creating very high fashion hair."

 

Lizanne Brovsky, who led the team of TallGrass makeup artists concurs. "My team rocked it out," she says as she describes the over-the-top theatrical makeup that TallGrass estheticians created to transform the models into runway stars.

 

When you visit our Facebook page to see photos of the show, you'll be knocked out, too!
