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.
read more to see some stunning photos and a selection of free people items that evoke the spirit and beauty of the cherry blossoms!
green day and lady gaga? no thank you. soundgarden, arcade fire, strokes, phoenix, MGMT, jimmy cliff, black keys, national, spoon, grizzly bear, wolfmother, yeasayer, the XX, edward sharpe (and i could keep going)? YES PLEASE.
one of the hardest things about festival season is deciding which one to go to, because only in my wildest dreams can i attend them all. this just might be a lollapalooza year, although i still think the sasquatch lineup is the best… lollapalooza will take place august 6th-8th in grant park, chicago.
don’t forget to stay tuned to the blog as a couple of our girls are headed to coachella next weekend – and if you’re going, maybe we’ll see you there!
cara has been with us at king of prussia, pa as an associate for quite a while now and has been a great part of our team. her hard work and love for the brand has landed her an operations internship at the home office this summer – we look forward to having you here, cara!
