This month, one of the coolest events in our lifetime will happen right here in our own backyard. In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard, Greenville is one of just a few cities in the entire country that will experience “total darkness” on August 21st┬áduring the eclipse!

I’ve never been big into science, but I am totally geek-ing out over this event! Are you planning to watch this once-in-a-lifetime experience? We’d love to see your eclipse photos- send them to our Facebook page and one lucky winner will receive a “darkness” inspired gift basket full of goodies to help you sleep.

And, as quickly as the moon crosses over the sun, the back-to-school season will be upon us (literally just one┬áday later!) This is the time of year I love because so many of our wonderful guests see it as an opportunity for a fresh start. Maybe you’ll lighten up; maybe you’ll go dark- whatever you decide we hope you’ll have a few solar viewing stories to share with us!

Speaking of a fresh start, I’m excited to announce the return of Ivy’s spa services next month. Be one of the first to book an appointment for the all-new Tulasara facials or skin care treatments. Plus, if you’re a Pure Privilege member, you will reap some serious points between now and October 1, 2017.
