Happening This Weekend - 5/10/2019

Mother's Day is this Sunday, and there are some special events going on all weekend to pamper Mom and show her some love, such as the Self-Love Saturday event at Firefly Yoga (taking place from 9 am to 5 pm), or visit the annual Common Ground Spring Plant Sale.

It is also Second Saturday in Beacon! That means plenty of new art openings for you to see and discover new artwork and artists. We have the Second Saturday Guide for you now!

Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

Sexy mama! Ladies, dry eyes are no joke, especially when you're tired. If you're wearing your glasses more and more (and skipping the contacts), maybe it's time for prescription sunglasses, available at Luxe Optique. These frames are from the French eyewear designer Anne & Valentin. Luxe is really good at using colored lenses, like the faded purple you see here, or traditional black, or even mirror. For Mother's Day, enjoy a glass of champagne with them!


Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique
