Nantucket Bike Tour w/ZANNI

Sign Up HERE!

We're so ACKcited to be partnering with Nantucket Bike Tours to tell the story behind one of our beloved brands, ZANNI.

Suzanne Brosnan first had the idea for a technical dress while biking 5 miles in a dress to get tacos from Millie’s on Nantucket. She was sick of occasion-specific or uncomfortable clothing, which results in excess waste and wasted money on low-quality pieces. Drawing on her background as a UI/UX designer, Suzanne set out to improve the way women experience apparel by designing a functional wardrobe with minimal maintenance for the modern, active woman.

Jason Bridges, the owner of Nantucket Biker Tours, will take us to some of Nantucket's hidden gems and highlight female ACK innovators like Suzanne. Be prepared for oh so many 'gram opportunities. #zannibiketour #bikethebrand

Bring your friends, learn something new, prepare to be obsessed!

P.S. The $50 ticket will go towards your ZANNI purchase! WARNING: you might need every color.

Nantucket: Art Workshop w/ Keith MacLelland

Sign up on Eventbrite HERE!

Join us for a family-friendly workshop with Keith MacLelland! Drop in from 10am-2pm to learn how to create Keith's signature coastal-inspired pieces.

You will leave with a unique piece of art inspired by summer in ACK!

Keith MacLelland is an artist and educator who creates coastal contemporary illustrations for the gallery, interior decorating and gift industries. He’s the Department Chair of Illustration and an Associate Professor at Lesley Art + Design. MacLelland’s work has received kudos from 3x3, American Illustration, Applied Arts, Creative Quarterly, HOW Design and the Society of Illustrators. He's exhibited throughout the United States in cities such as NY, LA, and Boston, and has been published in the US, Australia, France and Germany.

Constructing his work from discarded ephemera: cereal boxes, flooring remnants, and leftover gift wrap, MacLelland’s Boston and Cape Cod based mixed media studio practice is eco-conscious. His palette is dominated by saturated colors that echo the brightly painted buoys that bob atop the ebb and flow of ocean waves.

Mother's Day Q+A

Mother's Day Q + A 

An open forum for all of your questions, whether you are planning for a baby or navigating the 4th trimester and beyond.

----

Are you a mom, mom-to-be or have mom friends? Join us for an informal Q + A session to discuss motherhood with Momprenuer, Meg Severance and Certified Nurse Midwife, Ailsa Emmel. This is your opportunity to ask all of your burning questions in a safe space.  Let's celebrate all of our moms and important women in our lives!

Meet Meg Severance, the founder of bee + roo. Meg designed the perfect cashmere nursing poncho to better meet the needs of moms and babies. bee + roo believes moms should feel comfortable breastfeeding anywhere. Their goal is to empower women to never leave the room.  

Meet Ailsa Emmel, Certified Nurse Midwife and mastermind behind @happygocurly, doesn’t believe in perfection. As a U.S. Navy nurse at the start of her career, she found herself convincing female patients that the pursuit of perfect is a myth. “These amazing women would tell me their stories and share how anxious they were,” she says. “I’d tell them, ‘You’re normal. We all struggle.’” It’s a message she now shares with her 13k Instagram followers, who see her sans makeup, keeping it real through challenges that may roll her way.

GIVEAWAY ALERT: Meg will be gifting one lucky attendee a special gift with basket of her mom must-haves!

Fresh Face with Emily Vickers

Clean beauty ... so hot right now! And rightfully so. Our skin is our largest organ which means anything we put on it gets absorbed into our bloodstream. Trying to navigate which products to use and why can seem daunting. Organic? Natural? Clean?

We've teamed up with Emily Vickers (@socialdearest) and Credo to help us debunk the myths and give us the inside scoop! Emily will walk us through her skincare journey and routine (fresh face goals), she'll share her highly edited list of products - items that you can feel good about using. Credo will be here with a selection of products from their Newbury St location so we can sample and pamper - and did we mention free swag bags for the first 15 people*? An event you won't want to miss! 

Please register on our Eventbrite page! *must be present to claim

About Emily Vickers:
Emily Vickers is the mastermind behind Social Dearest. Emily is passionate about discovering how to improve the well-being of others with a non-toxic lifestyle. The goal of her blog is to help busy women, especially moms, feel more confident and educated about what they’re exposing themselves and their families to. 

About Credo:
The "beauty" industry is seriously under-regulated, it’s largely left up to companies to define claims and terms, which creates confusion. Credo has been paving the way for the clean beauty movement since their inception - they're on a mission to change the way people think about ingredients and products they put on their bodies. They want to create a safer, more sustainable, more ethical beauty industry.
