We told you in August about Lush cosmetics coming to Macy’s at Fayette Mall; the counter was supposed to open a few weeks ago, but — oh well — it’s finally set to launch Thursday, Oct. 9.
Lush fans go on and on about the brand’s fresh products and organic ingredients: bananas, mango, pineapple and more. Everything is hand-made with expiration dates no less. And Lush counters are shopper friendly, set up deli style with bath bombs, soaps and lotions displayed on wooden tables and in bins.

While I grew up in small-town Kentucky I’ve always been fascinated with the cosmopolitan world of high fashion. On the other hand, I love a bargain and the thrill of shopping for just the right piece.
I have a degree in English from the University of Kentucky, and since 2002 I’ve written a column for the Lexington Herald-Leader about shopping, beauty and fashion. During that time I’ve interviewed everyone from designers to boutique owners about trends and style. And I’m still forever searching for the next big sale.
