Several places to help people look and feel better are opening. So that's where we'll lead this week.
The most obvious building so far hasn't "advertised" what it will be. But the large, two-level building at 1839 N. Government Way will be the Embellish Salon & Spa. In the northwest corner with Emma Avenue, the property formerly housed the Icon Credit Union.
Opening in the spring, the top level will be Embellish, with owners Tom and Gina Sampson and their daughters. They plan on 18-20 employees. The lower level will have offices.
A new, small building on the Emma corner will be the Aroma Espresso coffee shop with a drive-through. We'll have more details on these as they get closer to opening.
Revive Salon opens on Lakeside
Now at 211 E. Lakeside Ave. (a block up from Sherman) in the former Salon Bella Dona location, Revive Salon & Spa is a full-service place.
"We offer designer haircuts, coloring, hair extensions, facials, waxing, nails and massage," explained owner Johnny Nelmar. A Coeur d'Alene native, he's been a hair professional for six years and has six hair stylists, a nail tech and massage therapist.
They use exclusively Kenra hair products, All-Nutrient Organic Hair Color and Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. The shop is open 9 a.m. Monday through Saturday. Phone 667-6276.
Elements Massage near Costco
"Not all massage is created equal" is the theme of Elements Therapeutic Massage that opened last week in the lower level of Sportsmen's Plaza in the northeast corner of Government Way and Neider Avenue (in front of Costco).
Owner Mike Davis has 10 employees there and also has the company outlet in Richland, Wash. Open for five years, Elements Massage has about 110 outlets throughout the nation with its headquarters in Highlands Ranch, Colo.

Wiggett's Too in Silver Lake Mall
Examples of the special items in the Wiggett's Too antique store in Silver Lake Mall include a totally restored Santa sleigh from the 1800s and an old wooden soaking tub.
Extending from its store in downtown Coeur d'Alene, Wiggett's Too opens Monday to offer more space for furniture from the 1800s and 1900s, vintage jewelry and collectible stone and Indian artifacts and leather pieces.
