Earlier this week, Lush played host to the New Albany Middle School girls and their mothers. The parents came prepared. They brought donuts, a fruit bowl, and a Minute Maid orange juice bottle. We placed all of that on a table in the middle of the floor and got to work.
We love days like this. These 8th graders brought with them an infectious energy wave. Some of them got dipping powder. Others chose the gel colors. And though the girls consulted with their friends, their choices fit their personalities. No one replicated another. Among the choices, we saw wild choices like yellow and robin-egg blue. As expected, we also saw a set of pale pink.
When all was said and done, the girls and their parents lounged in the waiting area. Look closely and you can see a certain boy tagging along, but not without a phone to play a game while waiting.
