Garth Brooks. Gretchen Wilson. Keith Urban. Carrie Underwood. Kenny Chesney. The Dixie Chicks. These country music legends are the names normally associated with Nashville, Tennessee. But come Thursday, they’ll be competing with some new kids on the block. Introducing Dr. Hauschka, Kevin Murphy, Pangea, Jurlique, Korres and Hamadi. No, this is not the next lineup on American Idol’s Twang Edition; these folks may not be able to strum a guitar, but they can keep you looking groupie fabulous.
Eköh is Nashville’s new eco-friendly boutique launching on May 3. Located inside The Cosmetics Market store, this 300-square foot boutique boasts “a stellar array of prestige organic, natural and environmentally conscious beauty brands”. As well as an assortment of high end organic skin and hair care staples like CARE by Stella McCartney and Cargo PlantLove Lipstick, the store carries hidden gems likes Alaska Glacial Mud and French line, Caudalie. Pair your products with a SIGG reusable water bottle and a Baggu shopping bag and you’re good to go.
With the Country Music Festival coming next month, it’s the perfect opportunity to visit Nashville and spy Jewel or Shu Uemera or pick up ColoreScience or Josh Turner.
That didn’t come out right, did it?
