Salon owner hopes others will join Pamper Yourself Pink

Every year the stylists at Shear Attitude Salon host an event that treats breast cancer patients to a moment of heaven. This year, the owner is hoping other salons will join the cause and host their very own Pamper Yourself Pink events.

 

KXLY shared the Pamper Yourself Pink story last fall, when the three day event lasted over two weeks. Tammy Reams, owner of Shear Attitude, started the event to treat breast cancer patients like queens for a day after surviving her own battle.

 

During Pamper Yourself Pink, breast cancer patients are treated to a free facial, pedicure, or any other service that will help them step out of the world of treatment. Reams doesn't want to turn any one away, but the event has grown so big that she is hoping other salons will join them.

 

“I'm looking for help,” explains Reams. “Just jump on board with us.”

 

Grab the girls and hit the spa and beauty show

It's the “perfect girl's day out destination.”

The 8th annual Health and Beauty Spa Show opens Saturday at the Spokane Community College Lair, and event manager Rachel Swanson says it should be a great time for any woman looking to pamper herself.

“Women can come in and get over the winter blahs,” she said. “We just want to make you feel more beautiful and glam. This is a feel-good show.”

The event will have 98 booths with about 90 vendors. There will be all sorts of health and beauty products for sale and for sample. From skin care to clothing, from scarves to jewelry.

A portion of the proceeds goes to the YWCA women's shelter. Your ticket will be discounted if you donate a canned food or hygiene item.

There will also be a Before and After contest.

“Come in all ratty, get done up, and then everybody will vote and the winner will get a night's stay at Bonneville Hot Springs Resort and Spa,” according to Swanson.

Young Spokane designer headed to Fashion Week

You may have heard the saying the one man's trash is another man's treasure. One Spokane designer is using that phrase to make clothes out of reuseable materials. 

Rachel Mace is only 22 but she's getting ready to show her designs in one of the biggest fashion events in the United States, New York's Fashion Week. 

"Fashion Week is the biggest event in fashion in our continent," said Mace. 

Fashion Week is known by designers and fashion enthusiasts everywhere as one of the "must attend" events. In fact big names such as Donna Karan and Chanel show their pieces at this event while stars like Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Heidi Klum attend their shows. 

Although Rachel didn't have any formal training as a designer like others that will be at the event, she said she got her start when someone recognized her talent. 

"I went to the store and bought some garbage bags, but when I home and realized I already had some. So I made a skirt out of the new ones," said Mace. 

It was that decision to use reusable materials that helped her get her start. 

Free shipping helping Nordstrom's profits

Free shipping helping Nordstrom's profits

Shoppers looking for high-end clothes aren't letting the tough economic times keep them from shopping.

Nordstrom Inc. is reporting a 2.7 percent increase in its first-quarter profits.

The department store has seen a rise in sales as they've started to invest in free shipping and other initiatives to attract more shoppers.

Nordstrom's net income was $149 million, or 70 cents per share for the three months that ended April 28. That's four million more than last year. Its net sales rose to $2.54 billion.

However, Nordstrom's shares fell more than 5 percent after hours following the new numbers. They ended regular trading down 39 cents at $53.53, according to the Associated Press.

Spokane has a Nordstrom downtown in Riverpark Square and a Nordstrom Rack at the Spokane Valley Mall.

Shopping with the kids is easier said than done at most stores, but Lollipop Lemondrop in Liberty Lake makes the process fun. The boutique is hosting Holiday Shopping Extravaganza and kids are welcome.

However, the best part is the kid's stuff. Bring the kids for Santa's Workshop. They can write Santa a letter and make reindeer food.
