Spa Products, Horse Races and Pink Hats for a Cure

Our Spa Mirbeau team decided to go pink yesterday at the Saratoga Race Course on behalf of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation! Who doesn’t like to get dressed up in a pretty dress and a fabulous track hat every now and again?

The Sizzling Hot Pink Saratoga Hat Luncheon by Play for P.I.N.K. gave 200 beautiful ladies the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful cocktail reception and luncheon while feeling pretty in pink, and all for a good cause! In an effort to give back, 100 percent of the luncheon’s ticket purchases, donations and sponsorships were given directly to breast cancer research.


We wanted to show our support for such a great cause, and sponsored five seats at the luncheon, and also donated four exquisite door prizes! Four lucky ladies took home prize bags filled with top-of-the-line hair and skin products, bath goodies and Spa Mirbeau gift cards, redeemable upon our opening at Crossgates Mall this fall. We were also honored to have two fabulous fellow sponsors, including Vineyard Vines and Moet Chandon Champagne.

But our day didn’t end there! We also sponsored one of the Capital Region’s favorite summer pastimes—a horse race! As our very first sponsored race, the Spa Mirbeau Sprint was the ninth race of the day yesterday, conveniently following the luncheon. After placing our race picks, we took a photo in the Winner’s Circle with Amber Dancer and did a bit of celebrating!

Champagne, pink hats, spa treats and horses made for a great day, giving us a chance to connect with a community we love, while giving back at the same time.

…And They’re Off! Spa Mirbeau at Saratoga’s Opening Day

The pride and joy of Saratoga Springs for over 150 years opened its gates for yet another six weeks of racing! That’s right, the Saratoga Race Course kicked off its 2017 season last Friday, July 21, drawing tens of thousands of people seeking to experience the excitement of thoroughbred racing—and some pampering as well.

If you’ve been to the Saratoga Race Course, you’ll know there’s nothing quite like the thunder of the horses and the eruption of the crowd when they pass the grandstands, all drowned out by the slow-motion pound of your heart beating, hoping you bet on the right one!

But sometimes the Saratoga summer heat can make you straight-up tired. We’ve all been there, when no matter how hard you try to keep going, keep betting and keep playing, your adrenaline just isn’t doing its job anymore!

If this has happened to you, you’ll know it’s one of the most frustrating feelings on the planet, especially since you wait eagerly for track season all fall, winter and spring.

That’s why we decided to help you avoid it this track season, by bringing a taste of Spa Mirbeau to the track on Opening Day to help you relax and rejuvenate, so you could party all day long! You may have seen us handing out glasses of crisp cucumber water, while also providing mini chair massages courtesy of our highly-trained professional therapists to track-goers under the cool shade of the Jockey Silks Porch.

The best part of the whole experience was that the massages were FREE with a donation to a fabulous equine charity, Rerun Thoroughbred Adoption Services. Guests knew that with each massage, they were helping racehorses find safe, enjoyable homes and jobs in their retirement.

If you were unable to stop by and see us on Opening Day, don’t be disappointed! We’ll be back to the Saratoga Race Course on Travers Day. Treat yourself and feel good while doing it! You’re giving to a great cause, and we love treating you.
