the girls who work in our virginia stores sent me the following writeup on an event taking place in their area that they love – the national cherry blossom festival!
on march 27th, people began to flock to the DC metropolitan area to witness a breathtaking event – the flowering of the cherry blossoms along the tidal basin! in 1912, japan gave the cherry blossom trees to the citizens of the united states a gift of friendship. the cherry blossom festival is held every year – this year from march 27th until april 11th, and is located just 5 minutes from our free people store in clarendon, va, and 20 minutes from our tyson’s corner, va location. throughout the two-week festival, customers who visit the stores are inspired by the cherry blossoms, which symbolize the fresh, bright renewal that spring delivers. the free people girl loves venturing into DC to enjoy the colorful blossoms blooming in her path and to fulfill her love of nature.
