VS Nail Bar is by far our favorite place to get a manicure, pedicure, or full set of acrylics. TTDLanc writer recently got a full set of almond shaped acrylic nails and was so pleased with her experience. “I haven’t gotten my nails done for almost ten years, so I was very nervous. Owner Stephanie greeted me warmly and offered me a glass of wine while she pampered me,” Emily says of her experience.
Emily’s nails right after getting done. Stephanie created a natural look with a little pizazz on the ring finger of each hand.

Come in and celebrate VS’s 1st birthday! Until April 13, VS is offering $20 specials for gel manicure or regular pedicure. “We’ve had one fabulous year, so make an appointment!” owner Stephanie says. They are having a drawing for a free gift from Mary Kay and are also doing a giveaway for a free spa pedi. The $20 special is valid through April 13th. Appointments are preferred.

The chill is coming, and it’s time to bundle up the most precious of all: our children!

Bellaboo is stocked and ready in both their physical store and online! Bellaboo is a huge fan of Obermeyer Ski Clothing and Outerwear, and they are fully stocked with everything from snowsuits, to jackets, to gloves, to hats, and scarves. Obermeyer was established in 1947 when Klaus Obermeyer made his first ever ski parka—and they have been committed to innovation, technology, and quality ever since. Nowadays, Obermeyer produces some of the most high-tech ski clothing known to man. Bellaboo stands behind this brand and their quality products! With Obermeyer clothing and outerwear, your children will forget they’re cold—they’ll be able to focus on snowball fights, building igloos, and sledding through the fluffy snow.

Bellaboo, both in the shop and online, features Obermeyer’s sleekest and colorful designs for kids, and in multiple color options.

Obermeyer Snoverall Pant
Made of 100% polyster mini-twill with HydroBlock waterproof breathable lamination and DuroGuard DWR, these precious snoveralls will keep your child warm and comfortable out in the blustery snow. They have reinforced seat and knees, a reflective zipper pull, and fleece-lined hand warming pockets, too! Other features include: reinforced inseams/hems, double layer reinforcement, “I-Grow”™ Extended Wear System, an elastic waistband, heavy-duty YKK zippers, and water-resistant powder cuffs.
Available in four (4) colors, sizes 1 through 8.

Obermeyer Averee Knit Hat
How cute is this hat? Not only is this 100% chunky knit acrylic hat aesthetically pleasing, it’s also fully microfleece-lined. A little pom-pom finishes off this adorable hat! Fact: children lose more heat through their head than adults, so it’s very important to keep their noggins nice and warm!

Obermeyer Gauntlet Gloves
These gloves come in sizes X-Small to Medium. With a reinforced palm, thumb, a zippered heater pack pocket, and even an integrated nose wipe (!!), these are an essential to keep your little one warm while they build their glorious snow castles. The integrated heater pouch pocket allows you to add chemically enhanced heat packets, which are a must on cold days. These gloves are lined with highly breathable microfleece fabric, which is used to create a quick reacting breathable lining while carrying the thermal advantages of fleece insulation.

Obermeyer Trina Jacket
The Trina jacket uses exclusive HydroBlock® Sport 10,000mm waterproof/breathable technology. It has a removable hood, shaped seams for fit, and premium insulation to assure ultimate warmth. This jacket also features the exclusive ‘I-Grow’™ Extended Wear System, which has built-in technology to increase sleeve length by 1 ½ inches. Comes in sizes 2, 3, 4, 5, and 8!

These are just a FEW of the incredible Obermeyer brand products that Bellaboo carries.

Maybe you think about them everyday, and maybe you don’t. But did you know that they’re actually your most important facial feature? Yes! Eyebrows are even more noticeable than your eyes. According to a recent study held by University of Lethbridge in Canada, it’s those beautiful brows of yours that make your face recognizable to others.

Now, a lot of us don’t know how the heck to make our eyebrows look like Cara Delevingne, but there is one local lady who can help.

Her name is Brittany Leitzel—owner of The Pink Lady Salon and Pink Lady Permanent, a personalized services specializing in shaping your brows through microblading. Microblading is defined as a semi-permanent method to get those brows looking “on point.” Brittany can help you!

“I’ve been open a little over two years — it’ll be two and half in January,” said Kristin M. Snyder, Sophie Stargazer Boutique. “I primarily sell women’s apparel, but I also sell home decor, giftables, and frequently feature local artists.”

Drawing from a professional background within Philadelphia’s vibrant fashion scene and creative culture, Kristin has successfully paired women’s designer brands with socially conscious, eco-friendly apparel and accessories.




“I relocated to Lancaster with the intent of developing a business plan and moving my storefront to Philadelphia,” said Kristin. “In a sea of like-minded and ethically-focused business owners in Philadelphia, I felt like it was a very specific style niche that was missing in Lancaster. Ultimately, I decided to keep my business here.”

Offering such brands as Root Collective, Amour Vert and Gypsy05, Sophie Stargazer’s select apparel is either ethically-made or manufactured in the United States.

IMG_2940“We’re a little more curated with our brands than traditional box stores,” continued Kristin. “Also, I’m able to interact with my customers on a personal level. I know what’s in their closets and the styles they’re interested in.”

Gift giving is one of my favorite things about the holiday season. Isn’t there just something so incredibly gratifying and satisfying about finding the perfect gifts for the people you love? Everyone I talk to has their own favorite style of gift giving or demographic of gift recipients. I have a social-butterfly friend who delights in finding the perfect gifts for the many hosts and hostesses whose parties she will attend. I have the foodie friend who likes to expose us to the greatest in haute cuisine each year. The DIY friend who provides us with one-of-a-kind, made-with-love-and-talent gifts, and of course everyone loves living vicariously through the little ones by buying those “where were these toys when we were growing up?” gifts for the kids!

TDSC04436his year though, I think I’m most excited about shopping for the women in my life! My girlfriends, sister, moms and grandmother. My coworkers, my mentors, my cheerleaders, my girls! This is the group of people in my life who give the most and ask for the least, and so for me, they’re the most fun to spoil and give back to! I’m always committed to #buysmall and #shoplocal when I can, but for this particular group I love the idea of boutique shopping for one of a kind, beautiful, useful, fashionable luxuries for my girls! I started my Christmas shopping this week at three of my favorite boutiques in the Historic East Side of downtown Lancaster!

That Shuu Girl is one of my favorite spots on the planet for affordable fashion finds with a side of girl talk!
Nicole has got my number when it comes to style and taste, and almost always greets me with “I just know you’re going to love what just came in…” and is always right about that! I have brought many a girlfriend through the doors at That Shuu Girl for some shopping fun and we’ve found some fan favorites in the fleece lined tights, mukluk slippers, warm ponchos, glitzy skirts and fun accessories. I have never walked out of her doors empty-handed and I can always find something unique and exquisite for the unique and exquisite girls on my list!



DSC04444 2Sophie Stargazer is just a couple of doors away on King Street and opens up another world of fashion finds for the ladies on my list. Kristin keeps her store stocked with those wardrobe foundational investment pieces that we all need, eco-friendly brands that feel good to give and receive, and unique gifts and home furnishings that you won’t see at the mall. Fashion and conscience converge in this space for gifts that are beautiful, timeless and feel truly extraordinary.

DSC04455 2Festoon At The Firehouse is just around the corner on N. Duke Street. I’m telling you that just walking through the doors of this shop leaves me wonderstruck and inspired. The Christmas displays bring the season to life and get me in the holiday spirit of giving! You will find plenty of unique and beautiful garb here as well, but some of my favorite aspects of this boutique are in the home fashions and the Lancaster-made gifts. I’m particularly drawn to the collaboration they have with local artist Betsy Olmsted bringing her colorful, ethereal and whimsical work to textiles for your living space! I’m also loving their exclusive spa products by Brio. Another favorite gift idea is the two-amazing-gifts-in-one of Candle-Tumblers. The aromatic candles are hand-poured by Lancaster’s Premier candle maker, Christina Maser into brightly hued tumblers hand-blown by Lancaster artist, Kevin Lehman!


What better way to celebrate the women in your life than by supporting these women-owned and operated small businesses in our community! I hope you find the gifts you’re looking for, but more than that, I hope you find that giving is a gift in itself, and that our loved ones are the most precious and beautiful gift to us! Happy Giving, Lancaster!
