More from the Picnic website: ‘The dynamic set list for this show will feature creative reinterpretations of classic Elton John hits, interspersed with additional songs by rock & roll legends Wings, Styx, The Eagles and more.”

This year’s Picnic will be held on Friday, August 15th and Saturday, August 16th. Find out all of the details about Picnic with the Pops here. It should be a great show.

Whether homemade or catered, great food has always put the ‘picnic’ in Picnic with the Pops. In 2014 – for the first time – two gourmet food trucks (Fork in the Road and Minton’s at 760) will also serve food available for purchase during the event. Find out more about food options here.

And the best part?

Lowell’s is giving 4 lucky customers reserved seats for the Friday night performance of Lexington’s favorite summer event. Lowell’s will host you and your guest at our catered picnic table. We’ll serve dinner a little after 6:30 pm and the performance should start at sunset (about 8:30 pm).

Here’s how easy it is to enter: Just send an email to (pwp {at} lowells {dot} us) telling us you’d like join us. That’s it! We’ll draw for winners and contact all entrants by August 11th.

(Full disclosure: I serve on the Picnic with the Pops Commission. I am very biased. And it will be a blast.)

Lowell’s named Lexington’s first RepairPal Certified shop

Only one day after winning a Readers’ Choice Award as Lexington’s Favorite Auto Repair Service, Lowell’s has also been named Lexington’s first and only RepairPal Certified repair shop.

RepairPal is an online service designed “to provide drivers with the most accurate, unbiased, and useful car ownership information available”. In other words, RepairPal helps consumers find the very best automotive service.

The RepairPal Certified designation means that we meet or exceed RepairPal’s rigorous standards for customer satisfaction, employee training, fair prices, and quality work.

As is the case with all of our awards over the years, this designation also belongs to our incredible customers. Over 30 recent customers were kind enough to give us very positive reviews. (Thank you so much!)

You can read RepairPal’s profile of Lowell’s to learn more.  Lowell’s received a 95.8% overall rating on the RepairPal Quality Index.

We’re honored and humbled by this recognition, and we’ll work diligently to earn your continued trust and respect.

Lowell’s wins 2014 Readers’ Choice Award

For the eighth time – including each of the past six years – Lexington Herald-Leader readers have voted Lowell’s their “Favorite Auto Repair Service” in the 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards.

Readers' Choice - 6 in a row!

We also came in second place in the new “Favorite Oil Change” category.

We are humbled and honored to have the support of our wonderful, wonderful customers. We are also very grateful to have such thoughtful and skilled employees. We promise to keep improving our service to keep deserving your appreciation.

Lowell’s won the Repair Service category even when matched up against other great finalists who have national backing, multiple locations, and who service multiple vehicle brands (Tire Discounters and S&S Tire).

In addition to the past six years, Lowell’s was also the top pick for Herald-Leader readers in 2007 and 1994 – to our knowledge, that’s every time the auto repair category has been up for voting.

Thank you so much,
Rob, Suzanne, and your Friends at Lowell’s
