Spa on Main held a ribbon cutting with the El Dorado -Union County Chamber of Commerce on Thursday to celebrate the new leadership of the spa under El Dorado native, Sharon Tahaney.
“We originally were supposed to have this celebration last year but of course, as we all know, COVID happened, so we’re excited to be able to do this now,” Jaren Books of the chamber said.
A sizable group came out to be a part of the day’s festivities. Inside of the shop were mini sandwiches, cucumber and strawberry infused water, soft music playing — all the things that make going to the spa a relaxing experience.
Outside of the spa, attendees got to enjoy the spirit offerings of the Shindig Tap Trailer. The trailer is a vintage horse trailer converted into a mobile tap bar.
“It is an extraordinary feeling to finally be able to have this celebration,” Tahaney said. “When you go through the bad times it makes you appreciate the good times even more. I’m really grateful to be back to my hometown of El Dorado and to now be a part of the Spa on Main and the team that is here. Everyone has been great to us and have shown so much support to us this last year.”
As more and more people get vaccinated for COVID-19 and more and more restrictions continue to be lifted, Tahaney said she hopes more and more people will treat and pamper themselves after what has been a tough year.
“We have a full day salon and a full hair salon,” Tahaney said. “In our spa, we offer massages, facials, reflexology, waxing, manicures and pedicures; anything that will relax and de-stress you and give you a breath after all of this time, we offer. Also, because our treatment rooms are pretty much separated from one another, there’s a nice feeling about coming to the spa because you’re in a private area with your service provider.”
Before the ribbon cutting commenced, Tahaney introduced and thanked each of her staff and team members. She also thanked all that were in attendance and expressed gratitude for the sense of community.
“Finally reaching this point has made me so grateful,” Tahaney said. “We’ve all been through our trying year and we’ve made it because we’ve all stuck together as a community. I’m just so appreciative of this town and the people who have been visiting us all year and those that will be coming this next year.”
