Come rain or shine. Sleet or Snow… The annual CPY Holiday Bash is ON! This Friday night. (Nov. 30.) Party Starts 6:30pm.
Gratitude is hard to express. I mean how do you show your peeps how much you LOVE THEM? (Without having to jump up and down clapping your hands, as I frequently do! I mean, can you imagine Calvin doing that? That is so not him.) So, how do we BOTH show how grateful we are for you? Spend 1 year creating, designing, planning and cooking. The cooking is our first signal of gratitude. We love to cook and we LOVE to cook for you! Oooh, so there will be crockpots full of yumminess, and everyone’s BURN favorite, Mockaroons!
Designing. All year long we are listening. Listening to your wants. The things you say you want to see on a shirt or pant. Or a color you love. Yes, we listen (just like Santa, we listen).
And you might think we aren’t, you might think we can’t hear you over the laughter and light hearted banter… but, we hear you.
And, after all that listening we create.
We plan for every single item we create, that it has to hug you. That it loves you back. It begs you to wear it so, you will have a good day. And you can proudly say - “I am having a great day”! You can say it without fear, because you are wrapped in CPY gear that just loves you right back, no question. They do.
You might think “she’s selling me on them” No. I’m not. Students swear that our clothes make them feel different. I believe them. I believe them because our clothes are like our food, there is a secret ingredient. Uh-huh. There is. It’s called LOVE. Love is the magic. Yes, the magic is real. When you wear it, you will know. You will one day come in and say to us, “OMG! You were so right! The magic is SO REAL”! Well, maybe not exactly like that, but in your own words with your own unique way of expressing how good our gear makes you feel.
The night. We plan. Every year. We look at the calendar. We consider family events, shopping and everything into the mix. We considered what students have said to us in the past (that’s my anniversary night, my grandma’s 90th birthday, I go out of town that week) and we picked the date that has the least amount of resistance. The one.
Plus, on this one weekend, Calvin and I have a secret we will share, now.
This very weekend, 17 years ago, the same year we opened the magic palace of CPY, is the year we also tied that eternal knot. And this weekend is our anniversary celebration. We like to celebrate with you.
The studio has been a part of our unification as one since the beginning. The studio made it happen. The studio said to the world, these 2, they will unite and they will co-create.
We may not have kids, getting old now. But, you, you are our kids, our family, and friends. We like to be with you. So we celebrate our unification with you.
For years we never told anyone, (we maybe whispered it into a few ears between songs). It was secret we smiled to each other as the party was going on. But, you guys are smart and facebook tells no lies. (ha) So many of you figured it out, you put 2 and 2 together. Like Bonnie and Clyde, cookies and cream, you knew, we were secretly celebrating.
So now, we just say out loud, come and celebrate with us. The studio is our first born and you are like our kids in sooooooo many ways! I mean really, who else has the pleasure of sheltering you, clothing and feeding you with total pleasure? Yes, so now you know. It’s about the love. It has always been about the love. So, come and join us for a one beautiful peaceful night. Before the holiday’s turn you Right ‘Round!
HOLIDAY BASH, CD RELEASE PARTY, VEGAN POTLUCK & GIGANTIC SALE!!
THIS FRIDAY NIGHT. STARTS AT 6:30PM
Wait, there is a SALE too? Of course! It’s part of our appreciation. Only 2 nights a year our clothes get marked down with unbelievable discounts! Yoga mats and towels, too!
The potluck. T&C, we make things and you make things, too! Some of you prefer to get a bottle of wine, a 6 pack of beer or a case of water. That counts too! What makes our potlucks so tasty is everyone makes something fun and yummy, and things you never would have thought of. You get access to new recipe ideas and inspiration, too!
Don't sweat it, if you are stopping by and heading out to a concert, you don't have to feel bad if you didn’t bring anything to the pot-of-luck. Coming by to get a few CPY hugs and a quick cheers, is perfect too!
So what happens when DJ Lokah and Calvin come together? Yep, that is Lokah LUV. Lokah is Space, the new CD is out! This is the music we created for Vampire Yoga, now out on a real CD. It’s great music for focus, creativity and yoga. Just, you may not want to listen to it before you go to bed. It’s not music for putting you to sleep, it’s music to get you moving - calmly.
NEW CPY GEAR!
Ok, if you haven’t been in the last 2 weeks, you haven’t seen the FUN we had this year! I cannot pick a favorite. I love them ALL!
We just can't wait to celebrate with you! Make it a fantastic week ya'll!
Love and Hugs, Lokah Luv
