our suburban square store is having a sidewalk sale starting today through sunday! suburban square is a really cute outdoor shopping spot in the suburbs outside of philly. if you’re in the area, stop by our store and cool off with some lemonade and cookies! they have some really great new summer merchandise and markdowns to take advantage of as well :)

Post image for bonnaroo lineup – part one

in the days leading up to a music festival like bonnaroo, it’s hard to think about anything else.  one of the first things you need to think about before going are what bands you definitely want to see, because it is never possible to see them all. there are two stages and three tents which all have shows going on simultaneously, so sometimes two acts you want to see will be playing at the same time.  bonnaroo announced the festival schedule last week and i immediately printed it out and highlighted the bands i want to check out.

here’s a look at some highlights on thursday and friday!

thursday

unfortunately we aren’t getting there until friday- so i was a little bummed about missing these acts!

fanfarlo

loacalnatives1

local natives

trapper

blitzen trapper

the-xx

the xx

friday

here’s my tentative lineup for friday, which is jam packed with good bands…

Edward+Sharpe++the+Magnetic+Zeros+All+band

edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros

Dr+Dog+drdog3

dr. dog

st_shehim

she & him

the_national3

the national

Les-31

les claypool

0703_kings_of_leon_c

kings of leon

the kings of leon will headline friday night – fp jemma and i were talking about this the other day and we agreed – we want to hear the old stuff! i can do without the latest album please play “trani” and “joe’s head”!

late night

another great thing about bonnaroo? it never stops.  the shows go on late into the night and into the early morning. a couple of years ago my morning jacket went onstage at midnight and played until 4am – one of the greatest shows i’ve ever seen. if you can hang in, the late night shows are always good for dancing… here are some good ones on friday night/saturday morning:

Flaming-Lips-scream

the flaming lips

theblackkeys-promo

the black keys

lcd

lcd soundsystem

the first predicament of the weekend – the flaming lips play from 12am – 2am and the black keys from 12am – 1:30am.  i love the black keys so normally this would be an easy pick, but the flaming lips rock too and they’ll be playing  pink floyd’s the dark side of the moon in its entirety with star death and white dwarfs.  which would you see??

here’s a playlist of the above artists for you to enjoy!

YOU MUST GO SEE THE FLAMING LIPS! i saw them about two months ago and they played Eclipse and Brain Damage from Dark side of the moon, and of course they played their new cd. It was unbelievable. A TOTAL MUST SEE! I love the black keys too, but the flaming lips show is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Go, see, love.

see the flaming lips!

ten days till bonnaroo! i can’t believe it’s already almost here…myself and fp jemma, along with a couple of other fp girls, will be heading to tennessee to soak up the festival atmosphere, listen to some great music and scope out the fashion down on the farm :) stay tuned for many more posts as we prepare for our trip, and live blogging from the festival!

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Post image for i still love you new york

30th street station

last thursday jemma and i took a trip to NYC for the day to visit a couple of our free people stores! it could not have been a more beautiful day to walk around the city and we had a blast meeting the girls who work in our stores – they are so sweet. it has been quite a while since i’ve been in new york and i forgot how much i love it.

here’s a little run down of what we saw!

the 5th avenue store manager gave us a run thru of their store which was really exciting and interesting.  the theme for the front area is capetown, currently featuring cooler colors and lots of blues.  we asked about their customers and learned they see a lot of gingers mixed with lou! the geo shapeless dress is the perfect city girl’s dress that she can wear on its own or cover up with the centered pullover and a fedora for a cool night.

store4

we loved this inspiration wall in the back room!

store3

the adorable girls of our fifth ave and soho stores… our fp girls always have the best style :)

nycnew

stroe5

she also loves the arrowhead wedges – she told us taylor swift came in and tried them on too. also it’s a little hard to see but she’s got on the sequin slip under the chiffon one – such a cute idea!

and of course we couldn’t resist trying on a few things…jemma snapped some pics in the dressing room of her favorite items:

store1

she loved the chiffon slip, the horse waist belt and the trench. i loved the centered pullover, straw fedora and the super tank mini dress! all in all it was a great day and i can’t wait to go back again :)

WHAT ABOUT 3RD AVENUE!!!!!!!!
kat -May 28, 2010, 9:20AM

I second Joss's comment. Do us a favor and design cute suits for skinny girls with boobs!!!
joss -May 28, 2010, 9:48AM
I don't think that my 32DD's are fitting into any of those unfortunately. bikini season is a trial for the busty.

Post image for a tour of our new home

as you may know, our home offices are located in philadelphia’s navy yard, an old navy ship yard that is home to some really cool, old warehouse buildings that urban outfitters renovated to house our offices. building 15 has been our home for the last few years but next month we will be moving to the neighboring building 25, which is bigger – and has two floors as opposed to one!

on friday we were treated to a special tour of the new building (it is still under construction) and i snapped some photos to share with you all! i think we are all very excited for the move, especially after seeing the amazing new space- and the fact that it is right on the water makes me very happy :)

read on for more photos of our new home and to see the special treat waiting for us at the end…

Wow, what an amazing office! I applied for a few photography/design related jobs at the urbn home office and I must say i'm a little jealous of the current employees! :) such a beautiful space - and I love the big windows, great for photos. Nice space, you guys!
