  • Be Pampered By Nature at L'Occitane en Provence

    June 8, 2019 @ 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM
    L'OCCITANE - OLD ORCHARD, IL, 4999 Old Orchard Rd b18, Skokie, IL 60077, USA

    NOTE NEW DATE: This event was originally scheduled for April and needed to be changed. 

    When you think of spring hyacinths, daffodils, and lilacs, you probably have an olfactory memory of the sweet scent that comes to mind. Come join the Keeler Gardens community this spring on April 27 for a fragrant outing to L'Occitane to revel in and revisit sweet scents. We will meet at L'Occitane en Provence at Old Orchard Mall for a 9:30 AM presentation. Together we will learn how L'Occitane creates those inspired aromas and skin care products from nature.

    After the half-hour presentation, we will be welcomed to sample and shop, a chance for us to pick up a spring gift, for those that could use a little more aromatherapy and fragrance in their lives. Everyone will receive a small gift and discount on all purchases.

    Reservations for this event are confirmed with your $20 donation. RSVP via our Facebook Event page or via email and info on donating can be found at bit.ly/KGSupport. We are looking forward to sharing some of nature’s wonderful gifts with you.
