If you’re hoping to pamper your mom — or your wife, grandma, sister, aunt, or even your dad because why not? — book an excursion to Spero Skin Spa Salon in Mount Vernon. Schedule a day of mother-daughter treatments, or simply gift your mom a day to recharge on her own.
Spero, which means “hope” in Latin, offers everything from sugaring and microdermabrasion to hot stone massages, infrared sauna therapy, and makeup lessons.
“We’re not just fluff…there’s so much more to us,” says owner Tamera Pearson. “It’s so decadent and relaxing, you get to escape for a while, your head stops, you get to breathe…you get to restart.”
A Business Built from Love
Pearson began her career in esthetics after working at an ear, nose, and throat clinic, where she saw patients suffering from skin cancer.
“There’s so many people who came in after the fact, and I wanted to be able to help people before it happened,” Pearson says.
Over the years, she has detected problematic moles and lesions in multiple clients, including a man who had an aggressive form of cancer that had already moved to his lymph. Had it not been for Pearson urging him to get his skin looked at by a doctor, he likely would not have survived.
“He thanked us for saving his life,” Pearson says.
Spero also hosts an annual event with Relay for Life in which cancer survivors come in for a day of free pampering. The idea is to replenish those who need an extra dose of care.
The spa brims with this kind of positive energy and love, which you can feel in every detail, service, and touch. The staff is friendly and respectful, an environment Pearson has intentionally cultivated.
“I tell [my staff] I love them all the time…I love you, you’re doing a great job, I appreciate you. If we’re not good in the back, we’re not good for our clients,” she explains.
The setting is so inviting that some clients come in just to talk and visit. During COVID-19, when hugs and even handshakes are rare, Pearson has found that many people are craving connection more than ever.
“People aren’t getting touch, and touch is a huge thing. Huge,” she says.
Mother’s Day Specials
Moms are always doing everything for everybody else. On this day, let Spero bring the focus back to them, whether it’s through a relaxing massage, an invigorating facial, or a new hairdo.
Mother and daughters can create whatever kind of day they want, from a single service to a full day of pampering. The spa will even provide lunch or sweet treats from nearby businesses. Just ask ahead and Spero will make it happen.
For added savings, choose one of the spa’s Mother’s Day packages, or take advantage of a gift card special. Spend $50 and get $10 in retail cards, spend $100 and get $20, or spend $500 and get $100. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to bring a smile to Mom’s face.
“Every single person that walks through our door is special…you’re always going to be treated like you’re a queen,” Pearson says.
When it comes to COVID-19, the spa uses hospital grade disinfectant and performs a temperature check upon entry, so you can relax knowing you’re in a safe environment. 1400 Riverside Dr., Ste. A, Mount Vernon, 360.899.5105, speroskin.com
