earth month Message from Gail Ridings, TallGrass Owner

We can choose our reactions to events that happen around us.

I try very hard to choose happiness and to be positive when things aren't going so well. After all, I'm so incredibly blessed with good health, a wonderful family, loving friends, a successful and heartwarming business and a connection with my higher power. I'm certain that many, many people in the world would be thrilled to step into my shoes and enjoy my life. I am very grateful!

But, not right now. I'm in a sad place, my dear friends, and I'm struggling. It will not be forever and I know life will go on. A brighter future awaits and I'm preparing to embrace it -- just around the corner. Recently, I read that sometimes we are a light for others, and sometimes they are lights for us. I'd appreciate your light right now and I promise to shine it back on you very soon.

In the meantime, our patio is full of warm, soft, filtered light, along with beautiful flowers and adorable hummingbirds. I hope you'll plan to visit us to enjoy some relaxation during this lovely, green month of August!

Dog Wash Report

Dog Wash Report

Two thousand dollars raised for Evergreen Animal Protective League. 100 dogs washed. Dozens of volunteers. And, plenty of on-lookers, too. The 5th annual Wine Washes and Wagging Tails event was a record-breaking fundraiser and over-the-top fun for everyone.

On a warm July afternoon, we wallowed in lotsa suds, shaking, spraying and splashing. There was plenty of mugging for the camera, while doggie-decorated cupcakes made people happy and TallGrass bandanas were a hit with the dogs. But the most fun, you ask? At the photo booth, complete with hair accessories for pampered dogs to wear in their close-ups.

Annual Tent Sale - August 6-10

Set up on the patio just outside the Hair Salon, our annual tent sale is a treasure trove of summer items marked down by 50%. And, if you step inside to the coat rack near the Salon, you'll find all our winter sweaters are on sale, too.

Okay, so now that we have you inside, take a look at our boutique and retail area, transformed to bring you more of what we believe will make your spa experience awe inspiring. You'll notice a re-design that features Eminence organic skin and body care products including the award-winning Eminence Biodynamic collection of products that are active and earth friendly. And, of course, you'll find all of your favorite pure and natural Aveda products there, too.

See you at the tent sale and be sure to come early for the best selection!
