Ladies (and gents, too!) it's that time again to grab your crew and come on out to our most feminine and fun event of the year - back by popular demand! Join us on Tuesday, Feb. 5 from 7-8:30 p.m. and enjoy shopping beautiful and unique lingerie in an accessible and non-intimidating environment at Curvaceous Lingerie! Complimentary drinks and snacks will be provided. This is the perfect opportunity to find something special for yourself, or just to spend a fun night out with friends. 
 
Even though we'll have the store all to ourselves, space is limited so please RSVP to the Facebook event

Curvaceous Lingerie of Old Town Lansing offers fine lingerie from small to plus sizes, and is quickly becoming known as "the" place to shop for your beautiful and well-fitting underthings. When browsing you'll encounter bras, panties, chemises, pajamas, swimwear and more. Find something that speaks to you, and remember...friends don't let friends shop at chain stores!

Our Mission

The Grand River Connection seeks to develop a stronger network to support Lansing and East Lansing’s young and vital workforce. We exist to bring together young professionals in our community who are in their 20s and 30s. Our diverse, non-partisan group provides fun, social, and professional connections that encourage economic growth and community involvement where we live, work, and play.

Our History 

The Grand River Connection was founded in Spring 2005 to fill a gap in the community. Greater (East) Lansing is a great place for college students and a great place to raise a family, but for those in between there was no viable social network. With a goal of filling that gap in mind, the GRC was born. 

Young professionals in their 20s and 30s in the Greater Lansing area are welcome to join the group, and joining is very simple. There are NO membership fees, and most of our events are FREE! Simply sign up for our monthly newsletter by clicking the big button at the top right of this website.
