Message from Gail Sharp, TallGrass Owner


I have so many friends and family enjoying birthdays this time of year - one joyous celebration after another - and I'm enjoying every, single one. Among my four-legged friends, Willy and Bates, my Nigerian dwarf goats, had their one year birthday last week. They loved their party hats so much that they tried to eat them right after this photo was taken!

I'm practically giddy during spring season. My mini-ranch is just beginning to burst with life in so many ways - pastures and trees starting to green up, birds singing at the crack of dawn, now a glimmer of light at 5:30 a.m. Our neighborhood skunks will start having babies soon and I'll have to keep a watchful eye on my dog Nutmeg. She loves skunks but they don't love her and she's gotten sprayed too many times to count!

We're a month behind Denver's blooming season and, while it can be frustrating to have to wait, these extra days of anticipation create even more appreciation and gratitude. Similar to so many things in my life, when I've had to wait a bit for the reward, it's usually so much sweeter!

My step mother, Joyce, passed away last fall, right after my father died. I will miss them both and will certainly be thinking of her and my own mom this Mother's Day. I pray that you will take time to focus on loving and thanking the mothers in your life - especially if you are a mother yourself because then you know there are lots of reasons to say Thanks, Mom!

pen Allison Garner, Spa Babe

Recognized for her commitment to upholding TallGrass's core values, her dedication to being an expert at her job, and the way she maintains the ideal work-life balance that we all strive for, Allison becomes our newest spa babe honoree.

From a cozy office space behind the scenes, Allison moves around quietly assisting with human resource and accounting functions, helping out in whatever ways she can when staff gets busy and making sure the numbers match up.

During her time at the spa - it's been just over a year — Allison has come to love the community feeling at TallGrass. "Here, I feel like a member of a family," she says. "I love the staff." And she is looking forward to expanding her link with fellow staff members when she volunteers to help with Wine, Washes and Waging Tails, our dog wash fundraising event in July.

Thanks, Allison. We're looking forward to splashing around with you, too!

Something Special for Every Mom at TallGrass


Whether your Mom is a seasoned spa-goer or a first-timer, there are very special experiences waiting for her at TallGrass. And, she won't find these services anyplace else because they are all newly created and just now introduced on our menu, perfectly timed for Mother's Day.

The veteran spa fan knows that body treatments are the best way to get soft, smooth, silky skin. May we suggest our Beautifying Radiance Polish or High Altitude Hydrating Wrap for amazingly hydrating results that she'll love. And, for Moms who don't have much familiarity with spas, our Organic Mani-Pedi or Tropical Bliss Pedi can be a nice way to discover the pleasures of pampering.

Of course, a Mother's Day gift certificate from TallGrass is always a good choice. And, when you make plans to join Mom for her TallGrass experience, that might be the best gift of all!
