The gentle clatter of past tea parties seems to drift from colorful china cups and saucers on tables worn smooth by years of loving care. At LuLu's Fine Home Furnishings & Consignments, Liz Bradley curates 6,000 square feet of vintage furniture and accessories like these. Her inspiration comes from her great-grandmother LuLu Devaney, who helped her to forge her own aesthetic outlook. The parade of lore-steeped vintage items that passes through the shop has included painted oriental screens, Victorian-era chaise lounges, and classic paintings. In addition to connecting her clients with their dream pieces of furniture and décor, Bradley offers her services as a design consultant to help to add a measure of quirk and easy grace to dining rooms or find a sofa heavy enough to put on a magic carpet that has been grounded. Patrons complement retail excursions with a trip to the popular in-store photo booth which is outfitted with its own collection of pose-worthy props.

Captained by double-board-certified Dr. Robert Kagan, the crew of contourers at Anew Allure specializes in a suite of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Natural fillers and water-assisted lipo number among their treatment options, and all patients receive a complimentary consultation to determine the best strategy for getting in shape before inner-tube season.
Helmed by licensed aesthetician Usha Patel, Allure Skin Care pampers epidermises with skin-beautifying services. In the 90-minute herbal body-wrap treatment, an aesthetician first coats clients with a specially formulated M'lis herbal cream, crafted from herbal unguents and dreams harvested from body builders. A body-bundling plastic wrap then presses the cream into skin while stimulating lymphatic circulation. The cream gently draws toxins out of the skin, cleansing connective tissues and restoring epidermal elasticity. Organic ingredients such as aloe vera, sesame oil, and avocado pulp nourish skin, preventing the dehydration associated with other wraps and bathing in hand sanitizer.
