Wednesday March 8 is International Women's Day and Tiger Lily is celebrating by giving away 200 bouquets of daffodils at its downtown location. Customers are given two five-stem bouquets, one to keep and one to give to a woman who has made a difference in his/her life. The movement, called "petal it forward," is now in its second year.

A requested five dollar donation for the two bouquets will be donated to Thrive SC, a nonprofit that provides short and longer-term transitional housing for women and children survivors of domestic violence. Thrive SC is also the March recipient of Tiger Lily's Charity in Bloom program, which donates 20 percent of its charity in bloom arrangements to the organization.

Wax on, wax off

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Wed, Feb 15, 2017 at 9:55 AM

Did you know that waxers (verb or not, we're usin' it) have a name for their profession? They're called cerologists and they know everything there is to know about the art of waxing.

So, if you've been on the hunt for a new spot to get smooth, head to Waxing the City (located at 905 Houston Northcutt Blvd.) this Sat. Feb. 18 from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. to celebrate the franchise's first Lowcountry location.

Guests will receive 50 percent off of their first service. And if you reserve a spot before Saturday you'll also receive a $10 gift card. Woo hoo. Call the studio at (843) 207-4095 or book online.

Not only does Patagonia sell the quintessential collegiate patterned pullovers we all know and love, the company is also uber eco savvy. Their Worn Wear program promotes a "If it's broken, fix it!" mantra, encouraging Patagonia buyers to repair their apparel before throwing it out.

The Worn Wear College Tour brings a mobile repair shop to campuses across the country. Students can have their gear repaired in the funky custom van or they can learn how to fix the rips and tears themselves. Nonprofits like Lowcountry Street Grocery will make an appearance, as well as the CofC composting program and reps from urban gardens and bike share programs.

The Worn Wear Wagon will be parked at Randolph Hall from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 16. Check out the Facebook page for more details about the day's event.
