A Relaxed Afternoon at Avery Lane Salon and Spa
www.averylanesalon.com I climbed the two granite steps to immerse my feet in a warm whirlpool bath scented with an orange fizz ball. I knew I was in for a real treat. The setting is beautiful and zen-like. The monogram on the pillow of the chair is "serenity" and that is the way to describe the spa. It is very private and closed off from the main salon area. There is soft music playing and after I chose the OPI color for my toes I began to experience relaxation enhanced by the smell of oranges. The pedicurist clipped, buffed, shaped and polished my toes to perfection. She also massaged my old achy legs as she and I kept up a pleasant banter. To my utter surprise and delight I was also served a Dreamsicle cocktail in a martini glass. A combination of ice cream and some liqueurs were blended together. It was possible to sip it slowly all during the pedicure. How decadent can you get without breaking the law??
If you don't live in Zachary, I recommend that you get yourself here before the end of the month of May and the end of the Dreamsicle pedicure. Oh...by the way...my cut and highlights are just what I needed for a summer do. Thanks, Lauren!
