Lemonade Day at Carmel City Center

seedfund-e1360867925138On Saturday, May 18, Lemonade Day will be happening across greater Indianapolis and as a sponsor in partnership with office tenant, Polleo Systems, Carmel City Center will be one of the many locations where young entrepreneurs will have their stands set up around the project. In celebration of the Lemonade Day event, Carmel City Center retailers will feature sidewalk sales and lemon-themed promotions at the stores and restaurants.


About Lemonade Day

In late 2009, Houston entrepreneur and native Hoosier Michael Holthouse asked local entrepreneur Scott Jones ( to bring this great program that he founded – Lemonade Day — to the Indianapolis area. This unique program teaches kids how to start, own and operate their own business: a lemonade stand.  Kids viscerally learn about entrepreneurship, financial literacy, philanthropy and much more. Scott agreed without hesitation to spearhead Lemonade Day in Indianapolis and started a new foundation – The Think Forward Foundation – to do it.  It was a huge commitment but he didn’t hesitate. Here’s why…


Today fewer and fewer kids are engaging in entrepreneurial activities like mowing lawns or starting lemonade stands. And yet many entrepreneurs talk about their early childhood experiences starting lemonade stands, or selling golf balls to empty-handed golfers, as the moment when the “light bulb went off.” The moment when they knew they could control their own destinies and possibly even change the world with their ideas. A lemonade stand did that for Scott, and he wants other kids to have that “light bulb” moment.

In celebration of Lemonade Day, Carmel City Center retailers and restaurants will be showcasing some of their “lemon” products throughout the day:

Addendum Gallery – Sidewalk Sale

Authentic Sports Collectibles – Sidewalk Sale

Bath Junkie – Special offer on all lemon fragranced products

The Bike Line – Sidewalk Sale

divvy – Showcasing its very tasty lemon desert

Holy Cow, Cupcakes! – Special lemon cupcakes and possible other lemon sweets

Jack & Jill Children’s Shoppe – Sidewalk sale with 30% off anything yellow clothing & Lemon Loves Lime clothing brand

Matt The Miller’s Tavern – Showcasing an “Adult Lemonade”

Rain Aveda Salon & Spa – Head in to try the refreshing Hand Relief lotion with a hint of lemon scent

Uber Boutique – Sidewalk Sale and have Lemon Verbena candles by Linnea’s Lights


This unique program teaches kids how to start, own and operate their own business: a lemonade stand. More information can be found on the Lemonade Day website

If your child is interested in setting up a stand at Carmel City Center, we are able to accommodate 5 lemonade stands and already have 4 spots filled. Please contact Michelle Krcmery at 317-703-4660 to secure the last of these spots.
