At double the size and staff, Lily Grace blooms on Main St.

As Lily Grace Cosmetics approaches its second anniversary, the small business has twice as much to celebrate as it did a few months ago. In response to feedback from her customers, owner Cyndi Clark has doubled Lily Grace's footprint and added spa services to her cosmetics offerings.
"It was the clients," says Clark. "Our clients wanted something like this downtown. We have a lot of great hair stylists who do cuts and color, but no one just does a blow-dry. And some people just want to pop in and get their nails done."
Lily Grace formerly took up about 1,000 square feet on Main St. Now, the business has expanded to include the suite's downstairs space for a total of 2,100 square feet. The new space includes areas for massage, hair styling, facials, manicures and pedicures. But these are your ordinary spa services. Clark travelled the world and connected with spa treatment innovators to bring the best of the best to Lily Grace. 
"I just wanted it to be special. We're in Ann Arbor for goodness sake," says Clark. "We all travel all over the world, so I wanted to get the best in my profession. It's important that I bring something new to Ann Arbor. That's what my clients want." 
The expanded Lily Grace quietly opened for business last week. The staff has grown along with the physical upgrades. Clark has already added four new staff employees to her original five-person staff, and expects to add an additional four spa employees soon. 
Clark's eyes continue to be on growth as Lily Grace enters its third year. Her connections in the health and beauty industry have helped her bring a number of exclusive brand names to the Ann Arbor market, and she intends to expand upon those exclusive offerings by Jan. of 2014.
