Neighboring Wellness. The Oklahoma Public Health Association (OPHA) recently honored The State Chamber of Oklahoma for its contributions toward achievement in public health activities and issues. At its annual conference, OPHA presented its "Special Business Award for Excellence in Public Health" to The State Chamber representatives Matt Robison, who serves as Vice President for Small Business and Workforce Development, and Laura Wheeler, Website Manager and Designer.
For several years, The State Chamber of Oklahoma has been one of the sponsors of the Oklahoma Certified Healthy Business program, which recognizes those businesses that are working to improve Oklahoma's health status by providing health and wellness opportunities for their employees.
Continuing On. Founded by Paul Moore, aka the "Bohemian King," Lifestyle Boutique has been Tulsa's Mecca for chic, eclectic, global fashion and collectibles for 39 years. Before opening Lifestyle Boutique in 1972, Moore was the proprietor of The Tea Room in Miss Jackson's and Bon Appetite on Brookside.
A vanguard entrepreneur, Moore's hip, offbeat style enriched Tulsa's trendy midtown and Brookside districts. Moore died in February, though his Bohemian spirit lives on.
Bonnie and Randy Williams, who've operated Lifestyle Salon for the last 20 years, are the new owners of Lifestyle Boutique. Building on the Williams' long-standing relationship with Moore and their uncompromising dedication to Lifestyle's soulful integrity, the couple will continue to bring patrons enduring Lifestyle favorites along with new collections of beautiful, vintage-inspired clothing and jewelry and uniquely detailed contemporary lines, local art, books, distinctive home accessories and more.
Celebrate the Bohemian King's legacy at Lifestyle Boutique's Grand Reopening party at 6pm on May 12 at 3419 S. Peoria.
