september is yoga month! the purpose of the national yoga campaign is to educate people about the many benefits of yoga and inspire them to live healthier, happier lives. and part of this is to offer one week of free yoga at 1000+ participating studios nationwide! this is for new students, but all you have to do is take this card to your local yoga studio during the month of september. amazing!
stay tuned for some more yoga centric posts this month in celebration :)
anyone going to bumbershoot this weekend? it is the 40th anniversary of the seattle music and arts festival, and they’ve gathered a really interesting lineup- different from most of the festival lineups i’ve seen this season. here’s a look at some of the acts who will be performing, and a playlist of their music!
our newest store opened on friday in scottsdale arizona and our visual manager for the west coast sent along some great photos of the setup! she also got some amazing detail shots of the displays so stay tuned for those :)

what’s everyone up to this weekend? i am seeing one of my favorite bands, my morning jacket, at penn’s landing on sunday and i can’t wait!!! i have loved them for years and seeing them at this venue (which is pretty small) should be amazing. i haven’t seen them since bonnaroo ’08, when they released their last album evil urges, so i’m curious to see what songs they play.
i’m trying to get there early to get good seats so i can take pics!
if i wasn’t doing that, i would probably take a day trip to bethel, new york, for their harvest festival. our vintage buyer told me about it – it takes place on sunday at the site of the original woodstock festival and there’s a farmers market,crafts, live music and more. sounds like so much fun!
good morning! let’s get right to the thursday poll… this week we’ve been telling you about some of the trends we love for fall, so i thought i’d ask which of these trends you all are most excited about!
today we had the extra special treat of a farmers market right outside our office doors! fresh fruit, veggies and other produce from local farms and live music in the background as you shop. this will happen again september 8th and 22nd, how exciting! here are some photos from today- not the sunniest day but still nice :)
we had a bbq here at the navy yard yesterday to celebrate the end of construction around the dry dock next to our building. it looks so beautiful, they did an amazing job – and the party was awesome. a live band playing country-tinged covers of classic songs, mini golf, tons of great food, and beautiful weather :)
