We hosted a Single Mom's Spa Day for the single moms at The Awakening Church (the church I attend) and Cambridge Place (a drug and alcohol treatment center in Smithfield, N.C.). Several ladies and men from the church volunteered to help with everything for the event. In addition, several local businesses stepped up to offer services, products, and goody bag items for these ladies. All services, products, and food was provided for them. These ladies received manicures, pedicures, and make-overs from Tickled Pink Salon, chair massages from Spa Neo of Clayton, goody bags from several direct sales vendors and private individuals, ice cream from Mimmzi's Ice Cream and So Cool Snow & Ice Cream, flowers from Designs by Donna Florist, child care for the event from Triple H Funhouse, and light snacks provided by an individual, all free of charge. Everyone had a wonderful time and these ladies were not the only ones blessed that day. At the end of the day, when all the guests had left, the volunteers provided services for each other. It's such a wonderful feeling to be able to give back to and serve the community that supports our business every day.
Another great thing is we've added a new service: Princess for a Day! Some moms just want to have a special day for their child without all the hustle and bustle of a full party. So we have come up with a Princess for a Day! It is a over $100 value that we offer at a price of $90. We are doing an introductory special of $75 and it's been a huge hit. We are providing the following services in the package: Princess Manicure, Princess Pedicure, Princess Make-Up, updo, nail art, photo op in a princess dress of her choice, all photos put on a CD with a custom label, and an ID card with a photo of the princess that gets her a 10% discount on future single services for one year. We are so excited about our Princess for a Day package.
We continue to book Princess Parties along with our regular services. And we'll be adding more children services in the coming months. Once our "party pad room" is completed we'll be able to really expand our children services as well as offering adult services at the same time. Currently, we book out the entire salon when there is a Princess Party.
Princess Melissa makes her debut at a festival we will be attending as vendors this weekend. We are very excited about her debut as are the girls in the area. Her next big appearance will be during our Princess Bash that is scheduled for June 25.
