Shop Montrose and Feel the Love this Valentine’s!
I love Valentine’s! I love writing about it, reading about it, decorating for it, wearing the colors and hearts, and of course shopping for it. It amazes me that in many shopping venues you wouldn’t even know Valentine’s Day was coming up. There’s not a red heart anywhere. Not so in the Montrose Shopping Park. The stores, cafes, and salons are in the mood here. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: “Shop Montrose and You Will Feel the Love.” Last week I shared a Valentine candy, collectable, card, and gift shopping day. This week I want to focus on shops that will help you look and feel better Valentine style.
Let’s start at our favorite Merle Norman Montrose where Kris and Kim will show you how to have kissable lips. For Valentine’s Day they just launched a new Lip Tints Gift Set packaged in a box with kissable lips graphics on it. It includes two shades which complement any skin tone – Cutie Pie (pink) and Sweetie Pie (berry) – providing a kiss of color and a touch of hydration with a smooth velvety feel. Now, that’s what I’m talkin’ about!
To match your new Valentine lips, head on down the street to Revelation Tops (www.revelationtops.com) to get a Valentine top. Revelation specializes in seasonal tops and you are guaranteed to find something with a heart or the word “love” on it. These tops are especially fun to wear right now but you can enjoy them all year. Holiday Hats & Gowns, a few steps away, is feeling the love, too! It’s always a treat to see Lilian and Karla’s window. It’s like a Valentine composition showcasing some of their new arrivals for a classy Valentine dinner. The Clothing Market (2260 Honolulu Ave.) has a big selection of tops and dresses in their signature comfortable fabrics and prints. The hot trend right now is the open shoulder that still covers but has the feminine peek-a-boo opening that ladies love. Maral says they also have the perfect red scarf to add color and style to your Valentine outfit.
To express your heart’s creativity, why not spend Valentine’s Day at Color Me Mine. On Valentine’s Day, they have a special two-for-one studio fee (normally $10 per adult) and will be serving chocolate, baked goods and refreshments. This is a popular way for couples and singles to do something memorable, so be sure to make a reservation (818) 542-6644.
Spa Pura has some irresistible Valentine specials. Check this out, the Two of Hearts package for couples is $199 and includes a 60-minute massage, either aromatherapy or Swedish, a 15-minute essential oil scalp massage, a 15-minute hand and foot massage, champagne and special refreshments. There are several other packages also. Call them at (818) 249-7872 to reserve your time.
Thank you for reading this and shopping local first. All of us here in the one and only Montrose Shopping Park wish you a love- filled Valentine’s!
