In honor of May being Melanoma Awareness month we will be selling our “Pale is the New Tan” shirts again this year! With Melanoma on the rise it is more important than ever to raise awareness. Please help us do so by purchasing a tee-shirt and wearing it around your town! All of the proceeds from the sale will go to The Melanoma Research Foundation.

We will be selling the shirts at the office and spa located at 776 Longmeadow St. Longmeadow, MA. We will have a limited supply of shirts available for same day purchase. If you would like to order more shirts or if we don’t have your size, we can special order them for you! Tee-shirts are $20 each
