Our hearts broke a little bit when Skin Palette, Philly’s fab airbrush tan boutique (we gave ’em Best of Philly in 2012) moved from 19th Street in Rittenhouse to the Sporting Club at the Bellevue. (This is completely for selfish reasons, by the way: the former location was two and a half blocks from the Philly mag offices.)
And so, we are seriously rejoicing right now over the news that they're moving back to the neighborhood! The SP ladies, Julie Dorenbos and Susie Celek, are expanding their business from the Bellevue almost right back to where they started, inside Studio CL hair salon at 128 South 19th Street. So now there will be two locations for getting safely bronzed in a matter of minutes.
It'll be towards the back of the salon (with whom they share a good deal of clientele), with a little separate waiting area and two-room airbrush suite. It'll be open for primetime booking from Wednesday through Friday, from 12-9pm.
They're open now, though their official and grand opening will be Thursday, May 1st, which they'll celebrate with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres from 7-9pm. So stop by! Be selfishly happy with us.
