From our friends at Corset Shop Intimates!
In case you haven't seen this post, i'm having a staff party tonight after work featuring Color Street nails. Stop by the store and participate in our last staff event at the Corset Shop. Come after work or for a quick hello to the staff. Drinks and refreshments will be served!🥂
Join us for a FUN girls night. I tried Color Street a few weeks ago and I LOVE it! Tonight i'm sharing it with all of you. ♥ You get to try a free sample at the party and see how amazing these are for yourself 🙂
If you haven't tried Color Street - or if you're obsessed like Us - I encourage you to join us and even bring a few friends - the more the merrier!! I will have a variety of beautiful samples for everyone to try at the party and 400+ gorgeous sets on hand to see & take home with you that night 🙂 Including the BRAND NEW Holiday Collection!
What, exactly, are #FlamingoProTips? They can be difficult to describe, but you can see evidence of them if you look hard enough.
For example, check out Tyler Cloutier's third row start position at USA Cycling's #cyclocross national championships yesterday. Within 150 m, Tyler - a.k.a. "Mr. FlamingoProTips" himself - maneuvers himself to be in great positioning for the first turn.
From all of us at the #AlmaGPofCX, congrats to Tyler on a great effort at nationals!

We're a little over a week away from our Fall Trunk Show!
What are you going to be shopping for? What are you most excited about?
As Tyler Cloutier said, respect the rut, or in this case, the bike push path! #FlamingoProTips
Alvarado en Kastelijn hebben en mooi kloofje, Van Anrooij rijdt knap in derde positie.
Do you want a custom Alma GP skinsuit and/or race vest? We'd love for you to join in on our order! If you're interested, payment is due by 8:00 p.m. this SUNDAY, 9/29!
The skinsuit is a light/mid-weight fabric and has two rear pockets (which, when wearing the matching vest, can be easily accessed through the rear access points). Both of these typically run on the small side, so I'd recommend ordering up a size. The skinsuit is NOT thermal, but that's what baselayers are for!
Message me for payment details!
Here are the stock Monton items, for sizing reference:
Here are 3D renderings of the skinsuit and vest, respectively:
Stay tuned...like and follow the Alma Glengravel Ramble FB page because supported gravel road tours are the best!
