Pet Fashion Show at Performance Lexus

The Pet Fashion Show I’ve been telling my readers about for the past couple of weeks was PAWesome! :)

Cincy Chic held this third annual event at Performance Lexus in Mason. They were amazing hosts for the event... they even changed their valet parking sign to say "valet Barking" haha!

Ralph Sells, the General Sales Manager (perfect name for that job, right?!), was SO creative. He came up with great drink recipes like "Bloodhound Punch" (for the sangria) and "Poodle Punch" (for the white wine spritzer).

We also had puparazzi on the red carpet, tail-wagging treats, howl-worthy shopping, a canine couture fashion show, and a phoDOGraphy booth that captured lots of candid canine Kodak moments.

The pics of the fashion show are up on our site, and there are more pics up on our photographer’s Facebook page. Enjoy.... They're dog-gone cute! :)

My Favorite Things about Lexus RiverCenter

So, a couple weeks ago, I wrote about my favorite things about Performance Lexus. Well, the Lexus dealership on the KY side of the river is Lexus RiverCenter. I actually bought my car there!

I get it serviced and washed there a little more often because it's just a few miles away from our house, but also because (I know I'm a dork for geeking out about this) they JUST started offering complimentary hand-washes for their clients.

This is huge because it's exactly the care I wish I could provide myself… Ah, the days when I had spare time and would wash my car by hand every weekend… but they do it for you while you get other things done in one of their lounges.

They actually have three different customer lounges: a TV lounge, a quiet lounge, and a JAVA lounge. They all have complimentary coffees, cappuccinos, hot cocoa, and snacks. They have free Wi-Fi throughout the dealership and a business center for those work-o-holics like me who like to get ahead on some work while they're there.

I just learned about this too… they offer complimentary gourmet lunches throughout the year (prepared by a culinary chef), Customer Appreciation cocktail receptions to mix and mingle with other Lexus owners (I went to their last one and it's amazing networking!), Free Nitrogen fill-ups, New owners clinics to learn more about and enhance your Lexus experience, and they even lend-out their dealership facilities for events sponsored by non-profit organizations as well as local business partners. 

More often than not, when I'm there to get the car washed/serviced, Lisa the GM has some sort of fun event planned there. She'll invite me over for a drink, bite to eat or a sweet treat to take on the road with me! It's so fun - not your typical dealership!

It's actually almost my favorite time of the year to be at LRC! Every year, Lisa has the dealership professionally decorated for the holidays. I'm usually the one who gets their tree up the week before and am wrapping gifts in a rush the night before. So, I go in there to enjoy the decor and holiday spirit I wish I was Martha Stewart-ish enough to actually do at my house! :)

I can honestly say though, LRC is the one dealership in the Tri-State area that has earned a reputation for being completely different and innovative in their approach to wowing their clients. Lisa has truly set the bar extremely high so you can refreshingly expect the unexpected at LRC!
