Under the dryer for a change, hair stylist Karen Pickles poses for our continuing series, "Frames On Faces Of Beacon" for Luxe Optique. Karen is wearing the Dita Fearless, flawlessly designed for a fierce, fearless, feminine woman. "Karen is obviously killing it!" says Luxe.

Style Storehouse
484 Main Street

Picture yourself in this wispy dress at Style Storehouse, walking through the spring air that is the just-right temperature of being not too hot and not too cool, warmed by the spring sunshine soaking into the flowy white fabric. You're dressed and ready to go for anything at Style Storehouse! Find the shop on the far East End of town, around the curve in Main Street. Keep going, like you're headed to Abscission Barber Lounge.

Lauren and Riley
462 Main Street

Ladies, if you wear a size 7 shoe, this is your L.U.C.K.Y. Day. Lauren and Riley is having 50% off all boots and pumps, which happen to be mainly available in size 7. If you like a little polka dot, stripes or flowers in your step, you should be taking one of these blue shoe boxes home. Lauren and Riley has also just launched the shop's very own product line: Beacon Candle Company. Owner Kim is now head dipper and maker of beeswax candles. She's devoted to this recipe because of the benefits the burning beeswax releases into the air, naturally purifying it and helping to reduce allergens.

Antalek & Moore wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday weekend for Easter and currently for the Passover period. Representing at the LCWR Conference in Atlanta, they remind everyone to drive safely, and pull over if you need to text. Distracted driving is real!
Daniel Aubry Realty
Back in January, Daniel Aubry, the real estate agent whose signs you see all over town, brokered what might be one of the largest real estate deals for multiple property parcels in Beacon history. He sold 20 parcels from longtime Beacon property owners, the Piccones, to a new family based in the Hudson Valley. Not only that, but he represented both parties in the deal, and planted the seed for the sale. We have the scoop in this Sponsor Spotlight feature.
