party at Lush may sound like a horny, drunken good time. But the Beachwood Mall shops grand-opening party is actually an opportunity to introduce locals to its popular handmade soaps and other bath-time necessities. This afternoons bash loads up on free goodie bags, games, and relaxing treatments. This is the U.K.-based Lushs first area store, so staff will be on hand with demonstrations featuring colorful soaps, fizzy bath bombs, and refrigerated face masks. Also look for a brand-new line of vegan hair products and styling creams with names like Goth Juice and King of the Mods. Says employee and fan Cici Driscoll: I love Lush -- the products, the beliefs, the experience of being in the store.
