Austin Fashion Week Names milk + honey’s Alissa Bayer 2012 Trailblazer

August 20, 2012

The founder and owner of milk + honey, Alissa Bayer, is now the proud owner of the Golden Boot (pictured). That’s right, Austin Fashion Week named Bayer one of five recipients of the 2012 Trailblazer Award.

The Austin Fashion Awards were held at the Austin Music Hall on Saturday night and brought the week-long celebration to an end.

Matt Swinney, the Austin Fashion Week founder, told the Statesman.com, “It gets bigger and bigger every year, and I get most of the credit, but that’s not fair. It takes the entire community to put together.” Swinney says it’s rewarding every time “designers who have put their blood, sweat and tears into a collection trust us to do it justice here.”

milk + honey special events like hosting a private party at our Hill Country Galleria location showcasing designer Nancy Ferrell. The entire styling team from SALON by milk + honey participated in the final night of runway shows at the Driskill Hotel on August 17. Alissa is thrilled to be awarded the Trailblazer Award.

milk + honey Fan Favorite Employee Winners

December 2, 2011

The votes are in, we’ve checked them twice, and thanks to you, we have two Fan Favorite Employees at milk + honey.

We received dozens of nominations for our massage therapists, stylists, nail technicians, estheticians, and concierge staff. Our clients recognize our employees every day by making requests the next time they visit milk + honey. Our quarterly Fan Favorite contest is a chance for our clients to nominate their favorite.

The two Fan Favorites are Mercedes (nail technician) and Paul (massage therapist).

Here are just a few of the wonderful things you have to say about both.

Mercedes:

My mom and I always come to see Mercedes together – and it feels like she’s one of the family! She is lovely to talk to, great with pedicures, and makes everyone around her feel comfortable. I recommend milk + honey to all of my friends – and then go further and tell them to go see Mercedes.

Paul:

There isn’t enough room in this box to fully explain why I. Love. Paul. and recommend him to anyone who says anything about massage, ever. He’s calm, quiet, and professional, which makes massages with him even better. I honestly am not sure I can continue to stay employed without knowing I can schedule massage time with him on a regular basis!

Admit it. Those glowing reviews have you excited to get back in to milk + honey. Check out our fantastic menu of nail services and massages. We want to thank everyone for voting. milk + honey can feel the love!

milk + honey Fan Favorite Employee

October 3, 2011

We know that we have some amazing employees. Our clients recognize them every day by making requests the next time they visit milk + honey.

Once again, it’s time for our quarterly Fan Favorite contest, when our clients nominate their favorite milk + honey employees. Click here to go to a form to nominate your favorite milk + honey staffer. Visit back to our blog on December 1 to view the winner.

Last quarter we had two massage therapists split the title of Fan Favorite: Matt and Randy.

One of Matt’s nominations reads:

“Matt has a calming presence, kind words, a sharp wit and I appreciate his endless quest to learn new massage and relaxation techniques. He is consistently honing his craft and his clients reap the benefits. Matt has saved me from the self mutilation of two MS150 bike rides and a 500 mile bike ride across the state of Iowa. He has unstressed me through the very uncomfortable pregnancy of my first kiddo and unwound me through multiple months of new baby sleep deprivation.”

One of Randy’s nominations reads:

“He is interested in my overall health and wellness. Remembers type of treatment and intuitively knows if something new is needed. His calm quiet manner and professionalism makes each experience better than the last! He is a jewel!”

We love our amazing stylists, massage therapists, nail technicians, estheticians, and concierge staff. Click here to go to a form to nominate you favorite milk + honey staffer. Visit back to our blog on December 1 to view the winner.
