Sure you feel great walking out of the salon with a fresh haircut or a perfect Mani/pedi, but what if you could bag a new outfit, too?

At Aura Salon and Style Lounge in Great Neck, now you can.

The ladies behind the idea are Miriam Shiff and Diana Mollica, who opened Fixx, a clothing boutique attached to the salon, in April.

"It's great that you can go to just one place and feel great about yourself," Shiff said. "You can get your hair done, your nails done, and then we can dress you."

Though it's small, the space is neat and uncluttered with racks of clothing ranging from floral tops, colorful scarves and fedoras to jean shorts, vintage-style Tees and light sweaters. There's a jewelry counter, too, that's separately owned by Ellen Lux.

Fixx also carries PilyQ, the popular European-inspired swim and resortwear brand, including colorful python-printed bikinis and cover ups.

"It's easy and funky," Mollica said of the shop's style.

Prices range from $25 to $220, but most pieces are less than $100.

Shiff and Mollica, who say they share very similar tastes, do all of their buying together, and they're careful not to pick the same merchandise as their neighboring stores on Middle Neck Road.

Their grand opening celebration is Tuesday, beginning at 10 a.m., and everything in the store will be 15 percent off until close. Wine and cheese will be served around 5 p.m.


WHERE 25-13 Cuttermill Rd., Great Neck

HOURS Tues.-Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. by appointment
