150Your new favorite indulgence is here: Julep Nail Parlor, by University Village. Julep’s the Godiva of nail salons. So luxurious. Been trying to spare Baby the harsh chemicals of most nail salons? Rejoice! Julep’s so Earth-friendly they don’t utter the word “acrylic.” Founder Jane Park wants you to enjoy being fawned over with natural products. She’ll even move the chairs so you can chat with your friends/mother/maid of honor while you’re pampered (Girls Night Thursdays run until 9 pm and include classic Sex and the City reruns on the widescreen TV). And pampered, you will be! The basic manicure includes an exfoliating scrub, a hand-and-arm massage with the shop’s signature Julep Refresh Citrus-Mint Skin Therapy lotion, nail shaping, and polish. We love the colors in Julep’s own line of polish, each named after a celeb; choose from hot-pink Drew, burgundy Scarlet, and lots more.

Of course, we’re totally jazzed about Mommy Mondays, beginning June 4, during which Little Ones will be entertained by toys from Melissa & Doug and a story time under the eye of a childcare professional (is this a brilliant concept, or what?). It’s sure to become a popular event, so schedule early. Kiddies can even get their own Junior Julep manicure and/or pedicure. Check the web site for treatment details, and to schedule an appointment. Goodbye excuses. Hello, high-class hands!

PS – Mention Red Tricycle, and you will receive a bottle of Julep Refresh Citrus-Mint Skin Therapy lotion.
