Anytime Tan Tanning Club first powered up its trio of German-made tanning beds in September, 1985, during the peak of the decade’s indoor-tanning boom. But just as bulky car phones and shoulder pads have faded away in the years that followed, Anytime Tan Tanning Club has stayed on top of trends by acquiring the latest equipment for its eight area locations.
The staff members at each location can pair clients with all manner of machines, from powerful Ergoline beds and booths to innovative sunless-tanning solutions from VersaSpa. For added vanity, most of the salon’s locations offer professional teeth-whitening services. And the Robinson location even provides Evolv sunless tanning and innovative red-light therapy, which aims to diminish signs of aging or the fact that someone enjoys napping on pizzas.
Reflect burst onto the Pittsburgh fashion scene last year with a full line of men's and women's casual and dress styles from exclusive designers. An Alternative long-sleeve T-shirt ($40) pairs nicely with Anoname jeans ($98), or doll up in a Betsey Johnson dress ($250) or a Wish skirt ($78.20). Fly fellows can don an i.am T-shirt ($49.50) with a pair of Howe reversible shorts ($59.50) to complement fashionable reversible shoes. To ensure that their boutique's line is refreshed as often as a browser window after posting an especially witty Facebook status, owners Kristy and Jenn often travel to fashion shows in New York and Las Vegas to return with the latest styles and trends. Reflect fosters a local fashion community by hosting fashion shows, trunk shows, and a recent local model contest for its upcoming runway show.
Coiling ropes of smoke coast down Beaver Street, luring smokers to the bountiful aisles of El Fumador's tobacco wonderland, which awakens the olfactory sense with its epic spread of aromatic cigars and American Spirit cigarettes. High-end brands such as Avo and vintage cigars from Romeo y Julieta beg to be chomped, smoked, savored, and the store's selection of pipes has the power to turn a bumbling detective into the second coming of Sherlock Holmes. Lighters and flasks outfit aficionados with stylish accouterments, as do cigar cases that hold smokes when they're not residing in a humidor from Diamond Crown or Madelaine.
