When Lemons Go Astray...

by Danielle Acierno

While the door is locked and the windows are dark, we’ve been stretching our legs out in the community. Meeting new people, making new connections and of course getting reaaaaal sweaty. See what big things we’ve been up to and where to catch us next!

theGALLERY at Grain Surfboards

We did things a little differently this time around for theGALLERY. Grain Surfboards in Amagansett, NY was gracious enough to host our newest installation of ‘Into the Lush’ by Emma Ballou – a local artist based on the North Fork. Originally set to take place in LOFT35, our Earth Day event was elevated to the outdoors to the welcoming and charming space of Grain’s workshop. On a clear, sunny day our staple complimentary Sunday yoga class was taught by Jessy Nees and took place beneath the sky and sun on the ground at Grain. What better way to find peace and clarity within yourself than on your mat with a gentle breeze, birds chirping and the warmth of the sun on your skin? Post yoga we indulged in wine, snacks and the mesmerizing artwork by Emma Ballou. Emma’s nature inspired work paired with the natural wood creations by Grain were a perfect combination. The afternoon was spent meeting new people, chatting with friends, and soaking in the beauty that surrounded us.

Live Your Vision

These are some pretty big questions. They require deep thinking and clarity. Setting goals is challenging and at times striving to reach those goals can seem impossible. Lucky for us, goal setting and goal crushing is a huge part of lululemon. It just so happens that one of our ambassadors, Sarrah Strimel, just returned from the lululemon Ambassador Summit in Whistler, Canada. There she spent some time within herself asking those big questions. Upon returning from Summit, Sarrah hosted our whole team at her yoga studio, BYoga, in Montauk for a vision & goals workshop. Sarrah shared with us her experience at summit and what it meant to her. She then grounded us through a series of thought provoking exercises that had us focus inward on ourselves, to see what was really there, what was coming up for us, why, and how we could acknowledge that and move forward. We put our fears aside and set some BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals) for ourselves. With the support of each other and Sarrah, we were able to live in possibilitly and create actions to crush our big-hairy-scary goals! Curious about our team’s visions & goals? Stop by the store when we re-open and see what big things we’re up to!

 

STRAWLESS SUMMER WITH SURFRIDER

Drinks and a movie in Sag Harbor? Yes, please! This month we helped out Surfrider, a non-profit organization that is making waves to protect our local waterways and coastlines, with their event “Strawless Summer 2018”. The night kicked off with happy hour at Page 63 and then we got down to business.  With a short stroll to Provisions you found yourself in the company of eco-conscious community members. The night, and film “Straws”, focused on the use of plastic straws within the restaurant industry and how harmful straws are to marine wildlife and our oceans. Surfrider is leading a movement here on the east end to make local eateries aware of the impact of plastic straws and how they can be a crucial part in the reduction of plastic straw use within our community. Surfrider had folders available with information on how to approach restaurant owners/managers to start this conversation regarding the use of plastic straws and asking them to pledge to either go completely strawless, provide biodegradable straws, or reusable alternatives such as stainless steel. It was really refreshing to know that there are people within our community who take this issue seriously and are looking to do something about it.
