LT CHI Hair & Nail Salon (Houston Back To School Spotlight)

My hair stylist has graciously donated a gift certificate for one childs hair cut, to our back to school blowout! Unfortunately he doesn't have a website, or facebook. He said he has enough business without them, and he doesn't want to expand past the two salons he already owns. I have going to see the stylist, Tony, for over three years now. No matter where we move, I always drive back over to Spring Branch to get my hair cut and colored. I have taken my husband, but according to Alex, Tony has not mastered the Houston Fade concept, so he goes somewhere else. The salon also offers waxing (no bikini, unfortunately), massage, and facials along with a full service nail salon. Here is an online review I found about LT CHI on Yelp.com :

Been going to Tony's salon for about a year. Now my best friend, her best friend, my mother, my neighbor and my boyfriend go to him to get their hair cut and colored. He's exceptional & talented. He can look at your face and know what style and color will work best. His previous training with Toni & Guy gave him an excellent foundation.

To top it off - You get a Galleria-area cut & color for less than $70. The location is a little out of the way but if he were located in the Galleria, his services would be minimum $100. So it's worth the drive.

Excited to leave a top rating for superb service and price.

I know this post is kind of boring without pictures or links, but believe me, the service is worth it! Enter to win below!

Clothes for Kids (Houston Back To School Spotlight)

Clothes for Kids on Memorial is a two-story store that caters to those who have boutique tastes on discount budgets. It is the oldest resale shop in Houston, open since 1974!  Owner Roxanne Weidman has owned Clothes for Kids since 1994 and has a keen eye and discriminating judgment.
"People come here for boutique clothes, and I teach my customers brand names," Weidman said.
Clothes for Kids caters to those who have boutique tastes on discount budgets.
In addition to Gap and Gymboree, Clothes for Kids also carries Baby Lulu, Flapdoodles, Ralph Lauren and Sophie Dess. While the downstairs is dedicated to the younger set, the second floor is home to teen fashions, including those from Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch and Gap. Pink or orange tags mean additional discounts.

A rack in the front of the store is dedicated to specialty items such as dance and ice-skating outfits and seasonal merchandise. Clothes for Kids still has a selection of school uniforms and swimsuits, but during the next two weeks, winter coats will be arriving.
"You never know what will come through the door, so most of my customers will check in every two weeks," Weidman said. "Once people see what resale shops have, they come back because you can find great clothes at great prices.
Clothes for Kids accepts recently washed clothing on plastic hangers and splits 50 percent of the profit.
Once back-to-school sales die down, the rush for holiday clothing starts, but every day at both stores looks an awful lot like Christmas.

Clothes for Kids is currently having a summer stock up sale up to 50% off!
