Local Love: Lauren Wilson-Policke

Lauren Wilson-Policke is the founder of her own PR, Marketing and Social Media company called LWPPR based in Montclair, New Jersey. Today she shared her Local Love with HipNewJersey.com!

What is your favorite local restaurant?

I love Le Salbuen. It’s a small, cozy spot on Walnut Street in Montclair with an ambiance that makes you feel like you are dining in a European cafe. They have the best burgers and duck tacos! Le Salbuen offers delivery and takeout so I’ll be treating myself often during the next few weeks.

What is your favorite local boutique?

STITCH Boutique in Madison, NJ – You can find something for every occasion here!

What is your favorite salon or spa?

La Belle Vie Salon and Day Spa– This spa is truly a hidden gem in Bloomfield, NJ. I never miss my monthly facial appointment with the owner, Nonna. She’s the only person I trust with my skin because she is so knowledgeable. It is always the most relaxing experience and the staff is always so friendly. In addition to a full service hair salon downstairs, the upstairs spa offers a variety of services like custom facials, massages, waxing and more. Easy on-site parking which is a bonus around here!

What is your favorite local health and wellness center?

Corefire in Montclair– The community that the owners Caitlin and Angela have built around fitness is incredible. Corefire has a great group of high-energy instructors who make working out fun. They are doing an amazing job with keeping their customers engaged and healthy during these uncertain times (while their studio is closed) by offering digital workouts. It’s no wonder they are a fan favorite here in Essex County.

Where is your favorite local place for home decor?

White Rabbit Black Heart – this boutique on Glenridge Avenue in Montclair has the most incredible assortment of unique home accessories, candles, gifts and delicious chocolates- I’m obsessed with their chocolate covered cherries. There is always something new and interesting to discover in this store with items you can’t find anywhere else. Their Instagram feed is SO good.

Where is your favorite local daytime hangout?

I’ve been loving Faubourg for cocktails. Their outdoor firepit area is such a treat when the weather is cooperating.

What is your favorite nighttime hangout?

Ruthie’s BBQ and Pizza – a low key bbq and pizza joint in Montclair. They have live music every Friday and Saturday night so my friends and I love popping in with a bottle of wine (they are BYO!) for bbq and music. I’m counting down the days to summer because their outdoor back patio is the best place to kick off the weekend.

What is your favorite New Jersey-based business?

Salt + Umber  is a female founded, sustainable footwear and accessory brand based in Hackensack, NJ. They offer an assortment of beautiful, handcrafted footwear and handbags that go with everything in your closet. The brand is all about women empowerment and creating a more sustainable and ethical fashion industry. Their Instagram is a constant source of outfit inspiration.

How has COVID-19 affected your business?

I’m the Founder of LWP Public Relations (Lauren Wilson-Policke Public Relations), a PR, Marketing and Social Media company based in Montclair, NJ. I work with many local NJ businesses across all industries from fashion, to real estate and interior design. We have had to work quickly over the past few days to pivot their business and marketing strategies to navigate these uncertain times. With so many local businesses having to close their doors temporarily or adjust, we have had to be nimble and come up with creative solutions to keep the business moving forward. Digital marketing is more important than ever for these companies to drive brand awareness and revenue so we are working diligently to create impactful digital content. Shop local, support your small business and encourage friends and family to do as well!
