See us at the Lilac Festival, help a charity, save some money and win a TV!

As most Calgarians know, the Lilac Festival occurs every spring on 4th Street SW from the river all the way up to Central Memorial Park. There's music, food, shopping and just so much to do! If you want more information about the Lilac Festival itself I'd definitely recommend you check out their website:

Last year was our first time having a booth in the Lilac Festival and it was an exciting and overwhelming experience. This year, with more time to prepare and more experience under our belts we're ready to have an amazing booth this year. So why should you come visit us this year?

You could win a TV!

That's right, we're giving away a brand new TV. No purchase required, no hidden fees, no strings attached. Come to our booth, fill in a ballot and enter to win a brand new TV. It's seriously that easy. Once we've drawn a name we'll contact our lucky winner and they have 30 days to collect their prize.

You can help a local charity!

This year we thought we'd help out an amazing local charity at the Lilac Festival. Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids (also known as BB4CK) provides meals to children across our city that otherwise might have to skip a meal. They're an amazing and inspiring group of people. They someone manage to make every dollar donated turn into a meal for a child. We want to help and so we're doing something we call "Check in for Charity". Come visit our booth during the Lilac Festival and check in to Eye Spy Optometry on Facebook or Tweet us @yyc_eyespy @brownbaggingit with the hashtag #CheckIn4Charity. For each Facebook check in or Tweet we will donate $1 to Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids up to $500 (that's 500 meals)! For more information about BB4CK check out their website at:

You can save money!

On June 13th we're having a huge frame show with the full line of Rayban and Prada on site! Frames will be 40% off (including sunglasses) and if you buy multiple pairs you get 25% off your second, third and/or even fourth pair of lenses! There will be live music, food and drinks and so many amazing frames for you to choose from!
To make our frame show even more special we decided that we would donate even more to Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids. If you attend our frame show and once again "Check in for Charity" we'll again donate $1 for each Facebook check in or tweet up to $500. Not a big social media fan but you still want to give? At our frame show we will also be matching donations to BB4CK so if you give $20 (But feel free to give as much as you like!) to charity we will too (up to $500).

We can't wait to see you on May 31st and June 13th! See you all there!

The fine print: Discount applies on frames only with purchase of prescription lenses. This exclusion only applies to ophthalmic frames. Sunglasses can still be purchased at 40% off with or without purchase of prescription lenses. Discount on additional lenses applicable on any frame purchased June 13th, 2015, not limited to sale frames.

First year anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to us!

It's been one year since we opened our doors and began working for the fine people of Calgary. We've loved being a part of the Beltline, Mt. Royal and Mission-Cliff Bungalow communities this past year. We look forward to spending many more years helping you see your world clearly and keeping your eyes safe and healthy.

Come see us during the Lilac Festival this May 31st! We'll be located just outside of our office at 1518 4th Street SW! If you stop by our booth you can enter to win a brand new, free TV and help a chairity too! (Details to come)!

To celebrate our first year of service to our community we're having a huge sale on June 13th! Come by and check it out for some amazing savings. (Details to come shortly for this too)!

Thank you for letting us be a part of your community and your health this past year and many years to come.
