In May, local community member Sean Riley suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of a succession of blackouts and falls. Sean is an off-road tour guide for Lake Tahoe Adventures and his wife, Georgette, works for the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority and the TahoeChamber, and both are good friends of Valorie and the rest of the team.
A Beach Bash Benefit at Zephyr Cove Resort will take place on Wednesday, August 15th from 5-8 PM to help the family with the ongoing care expenses. Sean is doing well, but does have some issues with comprehension and memory as a result of the injury, and has a long road to recovery requiring extensive physical therapy, home supervision and care.
Sean and Georgette have both contributed time and resources to organizations such as the National Ski Patrol, the Tahoe Rim Trail, and Bread and Broth, not to mention their contributions to their respective work places. They are valued members of our community and now need our help.
The Beach Bash Benefit will include dinner with live music and a no-host bar, along with a silent auction, live auction, and raffle. Funds raised will be used to help pay for Sean’s continued medical and therapeutic care costs. Tickets to the event are $35, and include dinner and a raffle ticket.
Through Aramark/Zephyr Cove Resort’s generous contribution to this event $25 of every ticket sold will go directly to assisting Sean. Tickets can be purchased online or in advance at the LTVA Visitor Center, 3066 Lake Tahoe Blvd (across from Rojo’s).
V’z is putting together some terrific items for the auction, and will be at the event. We hope to see you there!
It’s been a busy few weeks here at V’z. The team has taken a number of classes on new products like Color Proof Evolve, Moroccan Oil and Dermaquest. This continuing education allows us to remain current on hair design, product knowledge and new technologies, which means we can better provide our clients with the high quality products and services they deserve!

We encourage our clients to be part of this, by inviting them to product demonstrations, and providing website links to our preferred brands (on the right of this post).
So, whether you’re looking for a new moisturizer, new color and design, or a whole new look, you can rest assured that your team at V’z can provide you with the most current option’z!

The Lake Tahoe South Shore Chamber of Commerce hosted a fantastic event yesterday evening. If you weren’t able to attend the Mother’s Day Makeover BAHM, you missed an inspiring celebration of mothers everywhere, one that boasted a gorgeous backdrop at Valhalla, great wines from Bella Grace and Crystal Basin Cellars wineries, a Sidestreet Boutique fashion show (featuring our very own Valorie!) and the big reveal of the two lucky winners, Candace and Jen.
We’re big believers in the power of a new hair style, and these two beautiful women rocked the runway as they showed off not just new hair, but new makeup, a new wardrobe and new energy. Their stories were inspiring, and their smiles contagious. We are so excited for them, and wish them the best as they begin their ‘new year’.
Huge thanks must go out to the chamber and all the other sponsors, who together helped provide a holistic makeover for two very deserving mothers!
The two winners of the Mother’s Day Makeovers will be presenting their new hairstyles and makeovers at the upcoming Lake Tahoe South Shore Chamber of Commerce BAHM, to be held on May 10th from 5.30 – 7.30 pm at Valhalla. Valorie has done a tremendous job with these mom’s new hair styles, so we’re eager to see the whole new package!
For more information and tickets to the event, contact the chamber directly.
Yes, we are technically on Spring Break, but that doesn’t stop us from reminding you that applications are due next week for the Mother’s Day Makeover that V’z is sponsoring in conjunction with the Lake Tahoe South Shore Chamber of Commerce!

In the meantime, the Spring Clean-Up Promotion has been extended to May 1st. If you haven’t taken advantage of this great special (what’s not to love about saving $15, $25 or $50 off your next purchase?), better start cleaning out that bathroom cabinet stat!

Not only can she recommend the best products for your needs, but she can explain how your hair is linked to your endocrine system!
