Lights by DUO has a Yeti giveaway bundle!

Lights by Duo Yeti Bundle giveaway
Would you like to win this Yeti bundle giveaway from Lights by DUO? Yes, please!

Happy Wednesday, mamas! We’ve made it to the midway point, and that calls for a fun giveaway celebration from a new company in Northwest Arkansas (and a new sponsor here on nwaMotherlode). DUO Lawn Care is bringing Christmas a little early with this Yeti gift bundle, which one local mama will win.

DUO Lawn Care spends most of the year making lawns beautiful in Northwest Arkansas, but when our yards take their “long winter’s nap,” the company also offers holiday light installations, removal and storage. The service is called “Lights by DUO.” Here are some of the gorgeous homes they lit up last year. Sooooo pretty.

To celebrate the beginning of the holiday season, the company wanted to provide a fun giveaway along with a festive “hello” to the moms of Northwest Arkansas. If you’d like to see your home lit up for the holidays this year but don’t necessarily have the time, talent or equipment to do it right, these guys do. (And don’t even get us started on the MANY reasons why your husband and/or you should NOT be climbing around the roof and on tall ladders to do this yourselves. One of my neighbors fell off a ladder a few years ago, and it seriously took him months of medical treatments and physical therapy to recover from that serious injury. Nobody wants to have a broken leg, or worse, for the holidays.)

Lights by DUO provides customized estimates for each home, and the price depends on what you’d like to do as well as the size of the project. If you’d like them to dream up something amazing for you, they can do that, too, and will tell you exactly what to expect for cost. The price not only includes the lights themselves but also installation, removal after the holidays and off-season storage of the lights (so you won’t have to put yet another storage box into your garage or attic). The lights used are commercial-grade, low energy LED bulbs. All colors are available and can be completely customized.

We love how this company’s owners, Ryan and Kelly Melancon, came up with their business name — DUO. Because they operate the business on the same faith-based principals on which they live, they named the company DUO by combining the first letters of the first three words of the  Golden Rule: “Do Unto Others as you would have them do unto you.” Ryan and Kelly are parents to two girls and a boy — Serah, age 8, Laurelyn, age 7, and Hunter, age 5.

The company also believes in giving back to the community in which they work, which is why 5% of all holiday light installation sales will be donated to the non-profit CASA of Northwest Arkansas. (CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates, and these volunteers chaperone kids in foster care through the legal system so that they never have to go to courtroom hearings or appointments alone. They always have an adult who is on their side and looking out for their best interests.)

  31. For Christmas lights outside, I love white icicle lights hanging around the house. It’s nice to see the sidewalks lined with white to match. As for the trees and bushes, they can be a different color, and it’s fun to see the limbs wrapped in white, as well as lit large ornaments hanging from them if possible.
