In the coming weeks, there will be quite a bit that we will need to convey to everyone about the itinerary details, each Stylist's status in reaching the goal of getting free hotel nights, what the Launch means to your Vessel business, etc. But today we wanted to give you information on the basic agenda, as well as info on where we are staying and meeting.
As you know, the date of the Launch is June 22. This means that most people who live outside of Utah will need to travel into Salt Lake City on June 21, and leave on June 23 (unless, of course, you've decided to stay a few extra days on your own).
We will be staying at the Little America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City. Little America is a Utah icon, and features huge, well-appointed rooms. For a bit of history, in the 1890’s, when Little America’s founder was a young man herding sheep in a dreary section of Wyoming, he became lost in a raging northeast blizzard and was forced to camp out all night. He thought what a blessing it would be if someone would build a house of shelter at that desolate spot. Many times he dreamed of a haven for travelers with a crackling fire, warm bed, delicious food. In the 1930’s, the founder saw Admiral Byrd’s pictures of the “Little America” camp in Antarctica. It reminded him of his experience in the Wyoming blizzard and he was inspired to act on his dream and build a hotel in that area of Wyoming. The name, of course, was a natural: Little America.

We will depart around mid-day on Saturday to go to LaCaille at Quail Run, a French farmhouse style of restaurant in the Salt Lake Valley. LaCaille is renowned for its food, as well as for the gorgeous setting in the foothills of Mount Olympus. Manicured gardens showcase the architecture and the assorted wildlife wandering the grounds, including peacocks and swans.
Once there, we will have a training session in the afternoon, followed by a celebratory dinner and recognition at the restaurant.
The training session and the dinner are free for Vessel Stylists to attend. If you happen to be traveling with your spouse/partner (or if you live in Utah) and would like to have them attend as well, there will be a $60 fee for the celebratory dinner.
We hope to see YOU in Utah for the Launch Event!
