Featured Fairwood Business – The Wine Alley!

wwb_img2

With this post, I am happy to be continuing my “Fairwood Featured Business” series with installment #9.

My ongoing passion is to highlight and celebrate the neighborhood I live in, raise my kids in and work in.  I believe that a big part of what enhances our quality of life is when we enjoy our surroundings.  So I’m taking an opportunity to focus on our neighborhood specifically and to appreciate all that we have here, so close to home.

Previously on this blog, I have featured Plaza CleanersFairwood Thai Cuisine, and Cosmo Nail Parlor, Fairwood Golf & Country Club, Fire District #40, Station 17Shakey’s, There Ya Go Espresso and  Salon Tii Gavo!

For December I am excited to be featuring…

The Wine Alley 

With the Holidays in full swing, what better business to feature than the Wine Alley?! A great place to get that special holiday gift or a treat for yourself!

The Wine Alley has been a fixture in the Fairwood community since 2005, but in 2015 the new owners Touŕe and Charisse Sam took over and have fallen in love with Fairwood!

A New Beginning with new Owners!

Touŕe and Charisse are excited to meet their neighbors. Originally from California the Sam’s relocated to Virginia to be closer to family, but soon realized that they desperately missed the West Coast. They decided to pack up and move to the Seattle area after visiting for a friend’s wedding and falling in love with the area (what’s not to love?!) When the long time wine lovers found out a local wine shop was for sale they jumped at the chance. They could not believe they had an opportunity to share their passion for wine with their new community!

Shop Local in Fairwood

October 1st 2015 the Sam’s officially took over the Wine Alley from the previous owners Scott & Alley. They have enjoyed getting to know everyone here in Fairwood and are passionate about shopping local. Did you know they carry local cheeses and chocolate? It is delicious if I do say so! Of course they carry local wines too like the hard to find Cave B and Delille! The Wine Alley also carries many different varieties of craft and hard to find beers.

Tastings & Events

Touŕe and Charisse invite you to be their guest. If you mention Rosie Rourke when you attend one of their tastings they will waive the fee*! Please head in there, say hello, taste some remarkable wine or beer and relax this holiday season.

 

*not valid on all tastings

 

Rosie’s Holiday Party & Food Drive!

That’s right, Rosie and the Rosie Rourke Real Estate Team are hosting a Holiday Party & Food Drive at the Fairwood Country Club! This is a free event that is open to everyone in the community! Come by for FREE Santa Photos and help us take donations for the Renton Salvation Army’s Food Bank.

Fairwood Featured Business – Salon Tii Gavo!!

With this post, I am happy to be continuing my “Fairwood Featured Business” series with installment #8.

My ongoing passion is to highlight and celebrate the neighborhood I live in, raise my kids in and work in.  I believe that a big part of what enhances our quality of life is when we enjoy our surroundings.  So I’m taking an opportunity to focus on our neighborhood specifically and to appreciate all that we have here, so close to home.

Previously on this blog, I have featured Plaza Cleaners, Fairwood Thai Cuisine, and Cosmo Nail Parlor, Fairwood Golf & Country Club, Fire District #40, Station 17, Shakey’s and There Ya Go Espresso.

For September I am thrilled to be featuring Salon Tii Gavo!blog-pic-salon_tiigavo1

Salon Tii Gavo has been a fixture in the Fairwood community for EVER – in fact 2017 marks their 20th anniversary!

A Gathering Place

Tii Gavo means “A Gathering Place” in the native Havisupi language. Believe me, the spirit of the name rings true the very moment you step into the salon. You are greeted as if you are family when you walk in (but here’s a hint, it’s BETTER than family – there are SPA services!!) Nine stylists are on staff to provide the full range of hair services, manicures, hot stone spa pedicures and more.  If nothing else, you must experience the luxury of “the lather lounge”…a 5 minute stress relieving scalp massage while getting your hair washed.  It is heaven!

Service Oriented

Owner Jolene Casey showcases her many talents and gifts through her business. Top among them are her dedication to customer service and community outreach. First rate, high-touch customer service is the standard at Salon Tii Gavo. Their reputation in the industry is excellent and customer reviews are outstanding. Jolene takes that commitment a step further, however, by her continuous efforts to give back to her community. Jolene and her team at Salon Tii Gavo are regularly sponsoring raffles, community events and promotions to raise money for worthy charities. Many local and regional organizations have benefited over these 20 years from donations of money, goods and services that the Salon Tii Gavo team has provided! That dedication to service is amazing and rare… I am so happy we have Jolene right here in Fairwood!

Referral Promotion

Jolene shared with me that Salon Tii Gavo is running a referral promotion through the end of October! For current clients, when you refer a new client you will be rewarded from a list of amazing gifts!

The holidays are around the corner as well.  If you have never seen the Salon, please do stop in during November and December to shop from a wide variety of gift ideas for your loved ones…or yourself 🙂

Thank You to Jolene Casey and Salon Tii Gavo! It is businesses like yours that make our community so very special!
