New season, new issue. Come on in and see what we are up to at Basil & Salt Magazine. You’ll be glad you did.

Lowe’s Unites Creator Collective And Project Matchmaking Program To Help Us All #FallTogether

Win a chance for an exclusive one-on-one project consultation with a home improvement expert and $500 gift card

From backyard fire pits to pumpkin carvings and festive front porches, fall is a season of rich experiences and traditions. In fact, more than a third of people consider it be their favorite season*. That’s why Lowe’s has assembled the #FallTogether Collective, a diverse and distinguished group of 10 creators, who will work with Lowe’s customers to help them bring their passion for the season to life in their outdoor spaces.


Beginning today, customers can register for the Lowe’s #FallTogether Matchmaker Program on www.lowes.com/fallmatchmaker for the chance to be one of 50 matched with one of Lowe’s Collective creators. Each person chosen will receive a virtual consultation, customized project plan and $500 Lowe’s gift card to help infuse the sights, sounds and flavors of fall into their homes. The Collective includes lifestyle creator Sopha Rush, design and DIY expert Julia Marcum of Chris Loves Julia, and homestead hobbyist and environmental activist Jenny Ong, among others.

“We know that fall is a seasonal favorite for millions of people and there are boundless ways to bring the season home, especially in outdoor spaces,” said Marisa Thalberg, Lowe’s executive vice president, chief brand and marketing officer. “By giving our customers access to some of the brightest creative minds in the home improvement space, our hope is to give every household the inspiration and advice they need to take their favorite season into their own hands so we can all fall together.”

Lowe’s will also begin the official countdown to fall today until Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 6, by releasing daily DIY projects on Instagram created by the #FallTogether Collective and other Lowe’s experts.

Whether customers are inspired to enhance their fall curb appeal or add warmth and coziness to their indoor spaces, Lowe’s will also offer a variety of values during the Lowe’s Labor Day Savings Event on Aug. 26 through Sept. 8. It includes:

  • Buy One, Get One Free on Select Tools from Top Brands like Kobalt and Bosch to ensure customers are well-equipped to tackle any fall project.
  • 3 for $10 Sta-Green 1-CF Garden Soil to set the stage for your favorite seasonal flowers (excludes Alaska and Hawaii)
  • Up to $500 Off Major Appliances, including select refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers and more, to check off all the musts for seamless hosting.
  • 40% Off Levolor Custom Special-Order Blinds & Shades for the smallest details that make the biggest ambient difference.
