Navigating Beauty Culture - A 5-Part Series at Trilogy in Tarrytown with resident holistic psychotherapist, Jennifer Convissor, LCSW, RMT

We all know that physical appearance is held in high regard in our society. Women, and some men, will go to extreme lengths to meet standards for youth and beauty. In our daily lives, we spend time, attention, and money, chasing this elusive ideal.

However, where did these beauty standards originate? What is the real cost of this pursuit; to our bodies, our wallets, to the environment?

These are some basic questions that will be covered in these workshops. More than ever, women today are seeking to prioritize health over beauty, leave a cleaner and more just planet for the next generation and to simply feel better about ourselves when we look in the mirror. To this end, it’s time to truly examine the overt and unspoken rules that dictate how we should look and feel.

Jennifer Convissor, LCSW, RMT, leads this exploration into society and self-image, in a 5 part series that is both workshop and support group. Over the course of these sessions, participants will:

- examine beauty through various cultural lenses

- question beauty imperatives and standards

- learn how culture affects self-image

- develop deeper insights into our personal beauty stories

- gain greater empathy for ourselves and each other

- learn from each other’s challenges and triumphs

FEES AND REGISTRATION: The initial session is free and the next 4 monthly sessions are $25 each, or $85 if paid in total upon registration (or paid by cash/check at the first session). In order to create a safe environment and have time for every voice, space will be limited to 8 participants. Please email info@consigntrilogy.com for registration information.

A note from Heather: The topic of inner dialogue comes up regularly when I have time and space to converse with customers, and in each of those moments I find myself wishing that it might inspire some real motivation for women to change their inner dialogue for the better. It feels so easy and natural to have unconditional love and understanding for our friends, children, loved ones, even strangers. Why then is it seemingly so difficult to have unconditional love and understanding for ourselves and the bodies we inhabit?

I often ask myself: How can we at Trilogy support the women who support us? How can we better serve each other on our collective path towards self-acceptance? I think one answer is with this 5-part workshop with Jen.

These groups are a great deal for what a lot of other self-care services cost for the same amount of time. And if you find yourself really craving a more personal session, she is available by appointment in our cozy back office for therapy. I’ve been meeting with her weekly for several months now, and I can say with confidence that the experience has inspired a tremendous amount of personal growth. Together we created a space to process experiences, address tough questions, sigh deeply into the depths of our anxiety, whatever we need. I hope you'll join us!

Trilogy on Main Grand Opening!

We are moving to 54 Main Street, Tarrytown! Join us on Saturday March 4th for our GRAND OPENING celebration, where we will be rocking out all day like it's Studio 54 up in there! Bring your fella because our men's section will be expanding...

54 Main Street is located at the bottom of the shopping district (towards the Hudson River), past the fire station and Muddy Water Coffee, just next to the YMCA. Contrary to rumors you may have heard, we are NOT moving into the tiny vacuum repair shop! Just walk a little further to the door under the blue awning, in and to the right. We'll see you there!

A huge, heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us over these past three years. We really feel connected to the Tarrytown community, and are beyond excited to be able to expand and put our roots in a little deeper. We hope you'll find the new location as charming and comforting as our old location. Trilogy will forever be a safe place for all kind, loving, honest individuals.

The Clean Up Series: Composting 101

C-O-M-P-O-S-T (find out what it means to me!)

Trilogy and The Clean Up Series are proud to be teaming up with Rivertown Composting Foundation for this very exciting workshop on COMPOSTING! Whether you are already composting, new to it or curious about whether it is even possible when you live in a suburban studio apartment (spoiler alert: it is!), join us on Saturday, October 8th from 2-5pm in Tarrytown. We will cover:

*What composting is
*What you need to get started (including those 'greens' and 'browns')
*What to compost and leave out
*How and where to use compost (including a drop-off spot so you can get started without needing to invest in your own compost recepticle - yet!)

Get useful tips, eat delicious snacks and make compost with support (and a bucket) from us! Start your own collection of food waste in this bucket, then bring it back to empty it at a later date. We'll walk you through the whole process, making it easy and fun to learn how to reduce food waste. Even a little effort can make a big difference. 

Rivertown Composting Foundation is a community resource supporting current and future environmental custodians in the Hudson Valley. We are committed to maximizing the use and value of organic waste through composting and reducing the tons of food waste generated daily that ends up in landfill.

COST and REGISTRATION DETAILS
Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased > here < or in-store at Trilogy Consignment.

Composting increases soil fertility. Healthy soil improves access to healthy food, saves water, nourishes plants, and protects our green spaces and wildlife. You can compost indoors and outside. You just need a bucket (and some greens and browns) to get started and make a difference!

Quick and Easy Repairs

Quick and Easy Repairs

I'm interested in reducing the number of garments that end up in landfills by helping you make your clothes last longer. I'll be hanging out at the shop late Friday evening, ready and able to show you how to do simple repairs to your clothing, like how to sew a button, stitch up a seam, close up a hole in a sweater, re-attach a loose hook and/or eye, and I'm sure I can figure out how to help with whatever else you may want to throw my way! Bring your damaged item with you and we'll do it together. 

This is a free workshop, no RSVP needed!

The Clean Up Series: Fresh Perspectives

This event is for those of you who are curious about how to wear vintage in a stylish, modern way, and/or are unfamilar with what vintage styles work for your body type. Shopping secondhand is a fun and easy way to infuse your life with sustainabile practices, and discovering that perfect vintage piece is truly magical. With vintage (1980s and earlier), you can bet the garment was most likely made by hand in the USA, and that it was a cherished item in a relatively small wardrobe (no fast fashion yet!). Let us help you ease into the vintage hunting experience and inspire you to mix vintage seamlessly in with your modern wardrobe...

This will be a private, intimate event where 10 participants will work with Trilogy's unique personal stylists, Heather and Alicia, and bond over the process of finding truly one-of-a-kind vintage items, while learning practical tools for shopping for vintage (and modern!) in the future. 

$15 will hold your spot: you'll receive part of it back in a $10 shopping voucher the night of the event, and $5 will go to BE Beauty to support educating young women about sustainability and helping them find their passion. Buy your ticket by paying credit over the phone 914.631.3426 or by coming into the shop!

 Non-Toxic Options: A More Complete Picture of Health

Non-Toxic Options: A More Complete Picture of Health

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY: this event is about sharing facts you are entitled to, so you can make healthy, informed choices. To the out-of-towners interested in connecting, please feel free to join the event on the shop Facebook page if you'd like to get updates on useful information and resources. Coming together as women to share knowledge and experience is our best defense against the blatant misinformation drowning us as consumers and denying us the facts we need to buy from responsible companies using safe ingredients. 

On Tuesday June 9th, Trilogy will be stocked with an array of resources and examples of for non-toxic products and information on the effects of the toxic chemicals that are found in almost every standard "beauty" product out there. These chemicals are virtually unregulated in this country - the U.S. bans only 10 compared to Canada and Europe, which ban up to a whopping 1,400! What the heck, America?! 

Meet your local representatives for companies that specialize in non-toxic products, and learn about what's available at the markets right here in town.

The commercialized image of "beauty and health" not only has negative effects on our self esteem, but on our actual physical health as well. Reclaim your body and brain!

How to Measure Yourself Workshop

We will take our measurements and learn how to use them as tools for smarter and less stressful shopping. We will also talk about how we measure ourselves as women, and critically think about the significance we place on numbers. 

I prefer this to be a closed group event, meaning participants would come at 7:30 and stay an hour. The measuring lesson will be followed by conversation. Wine and snacks will be served. Fun will be had.
