Dog Day Afternoon

Loon and Beau hosts special event.
This rainbow bandana will be a part of the spring release for Loon & Beau’s Pride line. (A portion of proceeds will be going towards a local LGBTQ organization.)

We’re not the only ones who could use a springtime fashion glow up. Loon and Beau, an online Maple Grove-based pet accessories business, which specializes in bespoke bowties, bandanas and more, is hosting a silent auction, benefitting Minnesota Pitbull Rescue, and its spring/summer product launch, including pride and formal neckwear.

The event is set for 1-4 p.m. April 17 at Fox Run, 12241 Elm Creek Blvd. N. (The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes). Fox Run features intentionally-culled items from a community of Minnesota artisans. (Visit to read more about this innovative business.)

The auction will feature one-of-a-kind dog accessories. “I will be teaming up with local artists of all varieties, [including] tattoo artists, fine art makers, graphic designers and repurposers for the products to be auctioned off, so we will have a really fun mix of styles for people,” says Danica Reitzner, owner of Loon and Beau.
