Listen. We know you want to sleep late and then sip your foofy coffee drink while watching the Discovery Channel. And we definitely know you don't want to roll outta bed at 7 a.m. and put on a really boring gray suit. But hey, the bright side is you have a suit, you have a job, and the Discovery Channel is still around at night, too.
But a lot of folks don't even have the suit to get the job in the first place. That's where Dress for Success comes in. The charity helps women transition from welfare to work by providing professional clothing, mentoring and teaching career skills.
Throughout March and April, the Lorien Hotel & Spa (600 King St., Alexandria) is offering 10 percent off massages and facials with your donation of gently used accessories such as handbags, briefcases, shoes. So you can help others while finding a way to relax that doesn't involve skipping work yourself. Now get up and get dressed, already.
