"Lux's" sounds like a restaurant name!

Well, they are building a "Grand Lux Cafe" not too far from our corporate HQ in Houston.

Isn't the rule that you only leave off the s after the apostrophe if it comes after an s that you've added for some other reason (i.e. making it plural)?

Generally, yes, but here the confusion arose between the written S and the pronounced S sound at the end of X. It's a natural and common error and essentially shows that the person does actually care somewhat about doing things right. :)
