IMG_4452_EDIT_CROPHello Steepers!

April showers bring May flowers, but they also mean you can get soaked for free! That’s right, this month you can get 2 for 1 foot soaks Monday through Thursday when you book ahead. Grab a friend and come get soaked on us; no need for your rain boots. 😊

It seems the weather has finally turned and spring is in the air. The birds are chirping and the cherry blossoms are blooming. That also means allergy season is kicking into high gear; so we’ve chosen Allergy Shield as our Blend of the Month. It’s so popular we already had to restock! Be sure to sample some on your next visit.

We are very excited to announce our new partnership with Bakeshop and proud to be selling their delicious vegan baked goods in-store already. Personally, I can’t get enough pumpkin bread but the various cookies are amazing too. We are so excited we will be offering special deals throughout the month. This week get 2 cookies for $3 as a special treat for your little spring breakers!

The Steep events teams has been hard at work in March. We enjoyed meeting friends and many talented young dancers at the Bowen McCauley Dance Studio’s 8th annual Move Me Festival at Kenmore Middle School. Click here to see photos from the Move Me Festival and don’t forget to Like our Facebook page if you haven’t done so already. We were also a proud sponsor of the Girls on the Run LunaFest celebrating movies for and about women. We were also honored to host and participate in a discussion with a group of DAPL protestors from the FLOW movement (link to pics/video?). We continue to plan similar events and look for other ways to engage the community and causes we support.

April continues to bring more opportunities to find Steep out on the town. Join us as we celebrate Earth Day at Tudor Place gardens on April 29th for their annual picnic and plant sale. We are also coordinating multiple off-site ‘tea talks’ and private tea parties for both personal and corporate groups. Contact us at events@houseofsteep.com when planning your next group activity.

In other in-store news, we have a new work on display from WV artist Seth Pitt. I’ve been a long-time fan of Seth’s work and we are excited to share it his unique style with our customers. Our Employee Spotlight this month is on Anna Lipari. Anna is not only an essential part of our team but she brings a wealth of knowledge on natural healing therapies. It’s also Anna’s birthday this month so make sure to wish her the best next time you come in!

I want to thank the DC Capital Striders for making me their March Member of the Month. It is a pleasure to be a member of a charity doing so much good work in the community. We will be kicking off a weekly Monday evening run starting May 1. Look for additional details in the coming weeks.

Finally, a quick reminder that it’s never too early to start thinking about Mother’s Day gifts. We have you covered with soak and therapy Gift Packages for the special women in your life. Call us at (703) 567-1589 or visit our Foot Sanctuary menu to see our packages (scroll to the bottom).

As always, we you thank you for sharing feedback and thoughts on our progress.

Happy Steeping!

Patrick and the TEAm
