Greer's OC: An event that celebrates women

August 24, 2011|By Greer Wylder

Spa Gregorie's in Newport Beach will be celebrating women of all ages in a major way from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday with its 5th annual Women are Wonderful: In Full Bloom event. It's a women's expo featuring beauty demonstrations, exhibits, presentations and spa gifts, and the evening benefits local charities.

More than 50 vendors will be participating, including spa and wellness experts (like Clarisonic and Epicuren) as well as local boutiques, fitness studios, fashion and more. Experience high-end service demos, including tanning and shimmer applications, a Spa Gregorie's custom skin analysis and facial prescription, and a Nuface brow lift demonstration — the only FDA-approved device to utilize micro-currents for non-invasive "face-lifts." You can exchange your outdated fine jewelry, charms, gold and precious metals at the Hidden Treasures booth for cash.

Other vendors include Jo Malone, Bluewater Grill, True Food Kitchen, YogaWorks and Whole Foods Market, plus a photo booth for free photos.


All guests will receive a generous "swag bag" full of goodies and will be eligible for more than 40 prize drawings.

The entry fee costs $20, and a portion of the proceeds benefit the American Heart Assn., Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Greet the Day and Working Wardrobes. Tickets are available at all three Spa Gregorie's locations and at
