Go ahead and indulge. It's Memphis In May's World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, after all, and there's no better time to go wild by stuffing your face with loads of 'cue, getting covered from head-to-toe in sticky sauce, tossing back a beer or three, and giving in to your baser instincts by donning your best pig-wear. Thousands of pork enthusiasts can't be wrong, and that is exactly why Avon is going to be there. Yep, that Avon.
The Hello Tomorrow Avon Beauty Tour hits 25 to 30 cities each year, and it's those thousands it's after. A representative from Avon says the tour is very "hands-on" — wet-naps, please! — and will feature tons of free items from its latest line of cosmetics and skin-care products. Beauty advisers will be on hand to dole out tips and give lip makeovers at the Lip Service station. There will also be a "Wishing Wall," where visitors can enter to win $1,000 to make their wish come true. If Memphis receives the most entries, Avon will donate $20,000 to the local YWCA's Abused Women's Services.
So Avon it is. Hey, just because you're behaving like a pig doesn't mean you can't look pretty while doing it.
Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, Tom lee park, Thursday-Saturday, May 17th-19th. For more information on the Hello Tomorrow Avon Beauty Tour, go to avon.com/events.
