Studio Lush welcomes a curated selection of local businesses for a twice-annual ultimate shopping experience. Keep reading for all the details.
Featured only two times a year — right before winter holidays and before Mother’s Day — this Pop-Up at Studio Lush aims to showcase and celebrate local vendors. The holiday pop-up shop offers attendees a variety of local businesses to support as they shop for everyone on their list (including themselves) while also enjoying snacks and drinks.
The idea of a pop-up shop came from a conversation with Nicole Stengerand, owner of Studio Lush, and Megan Fenno, owner of FennoFashion, as they discussed their love of shopping and supporting small businesses. “We especially like the fact that this event really kind of kicks off the holiday season, and also we spend the time together as a salon – we are usually behind the chair together… it’s nice to unwind together,” Stenger says.
The holiday pop-up shop at Studio Lush was created one night over drinks between Stenger and Fenno as they were preparing for a busy season ahead. “Nicole is always trying to promote her salon and the fab ladies she works beside, and Megan thought this would highlight Lush as well as hers and other businesses,” Stenger adds.
The pop-up shop will feature FennoFashion jewelry, Belle Sorelle boutique’s products, handbags, and homemade home décor. The shop is open Friday, November 16, 6-8 p.m.
Throughout the year, Studio Lush hosts Lush Ladies night in May and makeup classes for the public throughout the year.
Each year, there are several new vendors for the pop-up shop, as well as keeping well-known returners. All food and drink are complimentary, and there will be a drawing for a basket of professional products toward the end of the night.
In the future, event organizers look forward to conducting more education and makeup classes. They are also looking forward to offering more services in addition to expanding the program to pay it forward.
