Turning A New Leaf...
Posted: Sep 09 2017
A Change in Color
For us, September always marks the start of the most exciting season in retail. Many of our beloved beauty and fragrance partners release new products for the Fall and Holiday seasons, introducing a gorgeous new color palette and rich, distinctive scents. Raw, earthy, rich and bold, a distinct change from the lightness of summer.
Autumn is a perfect time for reinvention; heading back to work, with a more defined purpose, a chance to find inspiration for a weekend project and a chance to update your personal style through wardrobe, color and fragrance. As a season of transition and tradition, we would like to present a few of our September inspirations.
Votre Vu Hand Cream & Lip Gloss - This sophisticated cosmetics brand just landed at Mills. We were most impressed with this luxurious hand cream, paired perfectly with a moisturizing lip gloss. Hand cream is available in a delicious Almond Tart or juicy Grapefruit. Lip Gloss is available Clear or tinted in Raspberry - you can mix and match….genius! Available in the Birmingham and online stores.
Berdoues Grand Crus Violette Eau de Parfum - Just released to the Grand Crus line, ‘Violette’ is the modern expression of the classic French Violet, blending Chinese Iris with Indonesian Patchouli, fortified with notes of Vanilla. It is packaged perfectly in a white porcelain bottle adorned with painted violet brushstrokes, finished with a black silk atomizer. A perfect blend of old and new. Available in the Birmingham and online stores.
T. LeClerc Rouge Theophile Limited Editions - Released earlier this year, the limited edition reds of the Rouge Theophile collection are the perfect power colors of this season. The collection features their best selling lipsticks, pressed powder and compact cream foundations. While we stock the majority of the entire T. Leclerc collection, these are definitely the colors to collect! Available in the Birmingham and online stores.
Noyah Lipsticks and Lipgloss - Finding a company that does ‘good’ while satisfying our need for style is hard to come by…until now. Noyah is a eco-conscious brand of lip colors and balms that are made of all natural oils and colors. Their lipsticks are contained in the most beautiful bamboo packaging, actually resulting in a 60% reduction in plastic use. Come find your new color in their perfect palettes. Available in Birmingham, Detroit and online stores.
Say Hello to Jena
You would be hard pressed to find anyone who comes to Mills Pharmacy and is not acquainted with Jena! She is the sugar-sweet voice that greets you when you call and the lead technician in the pharmacy that isn’t really satisfied unless she’s done all she can to assist you.
Jena’s favorite part of her job is helping others, whether it be our loyal customers or her fellow staff members.
Even though it seems like Jena is always at Mills, she occasionally takes some time for herself. You can find her at home with her longtime boyfriend and their two cats or at the barn, riding her horse and enjoying nature and the outdoors.
September is one of Jena’s favorite months; she loves the changing of the seasons and outdoor colors, while riding through the woods and on trails with her horse. Jena also loves hot cider, donuts and the autumn air.
This September is extra special for Jena, and for the rest of our staff, as we celebrate her 10 year anniversary at Mills. We are very fortunate to have such a hard working and genuinely kind person represent Mills all these years - thank you, Jena.
Be sure to wish her a Happy Anniversary when you see her this month at Mills!
