Happy Holidays! (Albeit early)
I’m so proud of this issue. Showcasing, Style, with our photo layout inspired by the fashions of the 40’s and 50’s. I can truly say this was our most fantastic shoot to date. Creativity ran wild! Creating the flashback looks was so much fun!
The perfect backdrop for the scenes was shot on-site from the Lebanon Square. Collaboratively The Wilson Living Team as well as Asante Salon and Spa, and Amy Rich Photography worked creatively to get the authentic “throwback feeling” combined with a modern flair, bringing out specific colors and cuts of the clothing. We wanted to highlight the Lebanon Square, as if it were “way back when”! The dust from decades past was shaken off.
Many Lebanon Square store fronts are new. A prime example was the last year’s opening of the Crystal Couture Store, which is consistently hosting community events and drawing people into the central area. The Art Mill is another store on the old square which has been a shining star! Parents drop their little ones off to paint when school is out, friends can come together to host painting parties, and others just come to find their creative side. The Art Mill has brought a fresh idea to an old town. In addition, ladies also have a new place to buy pretty underpinnings, at Dreams Boutique, which has just opened. Last, but certainly not least, you will find Lulu’s, another new clothing boutique that recently opened!
Of course there is always the “tried and true” stores where you can find antiques, yards of fabric and trim, design wedding invitations, and have your business cards or signage printed. It’s now a more convenient, user-friendly one stop shopping experience!
Let’s all promote these business owner’s ventures by supporting them with our holiday shopping! I know they will look forward to serving you. In turn, you will find great treasures among the selections on the comfortable old Lebanon Square.
Peace, Love, Fashion & Joy to You and Yours this Season
