This is a big week, celebrate Mardi Gras, Chinese New Year (Year of the Rat) and Lent begins on Ash Wednesday this week. Sorry that the big game did not turn out as planned.
The good news is that there is always fashion to make our loss less painful.
There are many ways to shop Eileen Fisher, Inc. product. As the weather gets milder over the next six weeks (ask Mr. Groundhog) I hope to see many of you in the Chestnut Hill store. If I do not see you there the e commerce site for our company is another resource http://www.eileenfisher.com The web is an easy way to purchase Eileen Fisher apparel, as well as the bedding & bath designs from the Eileen Fisher home line.
Select products in both apparel and home are also produced exclusively for Garnet Hill http://www.garnethill.com
Recently the Chestnut Hill store was offering this season’s textured cashmere throw and we now have a limited selection of sleepwear as well.
I am as many of you know a ‘princess and the pea’ sort of gal so I am always on the look out for lifestyle products that produce comfort for house and home, another good option can be found at http://www.gaiam.com
Gaiam is a company that is offering eco home products such as organic bedding and athletic wear for yoga, they are worth checking out.
I have a passion for bath and body products to the point of being a certifiable product junkie. I am attempting to find more organic options for bath and body product. I have had the good fortune of meeting Joshua Onysko in New York recently at the EF women’s business grants event. He is founder of Pangea Organics body-care based in Boulder CO. You can find the product offering at Whole Foods Market and on line at http://www.pangeaorganics.com He is a great guy with a great product and an eco-mission. Two other companies whose products I enjoy are Origins and Aveda.
I am also attempting to find more organic snack foods, one favorite is Cliff Bar. The quest for transforming my lifestyle to one that is organic and simple goes on. Suggestions from any one out there reading my blog are most welcome.
To all, since Lent is beginning this week I am compelled to invite you to experience my religious community at Brandeis in Waltham, where Fr. Walter Cuenin ended up after Newton. He is Chaplain there, teaching and ministering on campus. Over the last year or so the Bethlehem Chapel Community has been formed. Service is every Sunday at 10am. If you are seeking a liberal Catholic view on spirituality Walter delivers. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Much of the work that Walter is doing is with interfaith relations along with our Jewish brothers and sisters and addressing other ecumenical issues. As was in Newton his motto remains “All are welcome”.
