Message from Gail Ridings, TallGrass Owner

Has this ever happened to you? Okay, you decide, your bathroom needs a fresh coat of paint. That's all, just a little paint. Then, you see a photo or visit a place with a cool bathroom and think "Well, we might as well install new tile to go with the paint." Then, you think "Actually, the toilet is so dated that it really needs to be replaced." And then, you look down the hallway and see the laundry room is really in bad shape and, for that matter, the kitchen still has those avocado appliances that were super cool in 1979. We might as well do those too, especially since the whole place is already torn up!

Well, guess what? That happened to us at TallGrass! Maybe one of our bathrooms could use new tile...then, why not three bathrooms...and, the Sage Room needs a little makeover...and, boy, that Great Room (renamed Quiet Room to encourage whispering guests) needs paint and carpet. And so, we're off...on a remodeling kick.

That means TallGrass will be closed on Monday and Tuesday, April 6 and 7, for a whirlwind mini-remodel. Our fabulous handyman/contractor promises to work hard and fast to give us an elegant new look! Needless to say, we're excited and know you'll love the results when we re-open on Wednesday, April 8!

And speaking of new and exciting changes, we're opening our very own tattoo parlor downstairs next to the laundry area. Now, you'll be able to come to TallGrass for that cute little rattlesnake or skull & crossbones tattoo that you've been dreaming about! Watch for details, coming soon, on pricing, artwork options and pain levels. It'll be super fun!

Oh, and please note the date of this newsletter while you're dreaming about TallGrass tattoos and plan to have your own fun with April Fool's Day, too! :)

hair cut

Kick-off Earth Month
at the TallGrass Cut-a-thon

On Monday, April 6, TallGrass stylists are volunteering their hair cutting expertise from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. to offer $1-a-minute haircuts. You can choose a 30-minute dry cut or a 60-minute cut with shampoo plus styling tips and tricks. Only haircuts in the salon will be offered, along with a few surprises planned to pamper Cut-a-thon guests.

Proceeds from the Cut-a-thon benefit Western Resource Advocates, an organization we support every Earth Month because we believe in its mission to protect the West's air, land and water.

Please keep in mind that it won't be a typical day at TallGrass because no other services will be available and the relaxation areas will not be accessible. In fact, our remodeling project will be underway elsewhere in the spa. Sorry, no peeking!

earth month

Celebrate Earth Month
in the TallGrass Boutique

We endorse Aveda's mission to care for the world we live in and Earth Month lets us do that in meaningful ways with the products that we feature in the TallGrass retail department.

Aveda Light the Way Candle - Your purchase of just one candle can mean drinking water for six months for a family of six in India. The candle's glass container is made from recycled beverage bottles, but what really makes this year's candle exceptional is the artwork that wraps each carton with sketches inspired by drawings from children in India who drew pictures of what clean water means to them.

Eminence Products - Every time you purchase an Eminence product, a tree is planted in a developing country. In Africa, for example, Eminence's Trees for the Future program provides families with the education and tools to create their own tree nurseries and the profits allow them to support their basic needs while, at the same time, benefit the environment and fight deforestation. As of November 2014, over 3 million trees have been planted. And, closer to home, sales of Eminence products at TallGrass, in just the last 10 months alone, have resulted in 2,472 trees planted. That's equal to 87 football fields of trees!

Soldier Box Project
Shipping on May 14

We are now collecting personal care items for the Mother's Day/Father's Day shipment of Soldier Boxes to troops in Afghanistan and we especially need donations of full and travel size toiletries, paperback books, insect repellent and personal hygiene wipes. In our Quiet Room, you'll find notecards that you can use to write personal messages to our troops and, as always, everyone is welcome to purchase Aveda travel size products at TallGrass' cost for donation to the care packages. Thank you for helping us continue this project for six amazing, inspiring, rewarding years.
