Post image for where to stay in marrakech

when our team went to morocco to shoot the april catalog their first stop was marrakech.  they stayed in a gorgeous spot just outside the city, where small streets and alleyways recede into a vast grove of palm trees.  the sounds of the city are a distant memory as you enter a peaceful oasis where oranges grow on trees and roses climb the walls towards your balcony window.  the hotel is called les deux tours and these pictures taken by our producer speak for themselves…

Post image for who’s that girl…

this is heidi – an adorable customer who came into our bucktown, chicago store already wearing our lightshow babydoll tank and raving about how much she LOVES free people! our fp girls got to know her while she had fun modeling some outfits for them…

where are you from?
toronto

what is it that draws you to free people?
i love the attention to detail!

what’s your favorite free people item in your closet?
i’m buying it right now! these jeans are amazing!

in case you’re wondering, heidi walked out with the FP destroyed skinny jeans she’s wearing in the photo. the other items she’s modeling with the jeans are the rib & lace tank in citron over the pucker up corset cami with the pacific coast jacket, and on the right she’s wearing the floral tiered halter dress. she looks great!

Post image for cherry blossom cheer

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!

Post image for woodstock handmade houses

before woodstock became known worldwide for the most famous music festival of all time, it was a quiet town in rural new york that artisans, painters, musicians and freethinkers called home.  they lived off the land and made things by hand- even their homes.  they used local stone, wood and scavenged materials to create shelters that are as unique as they are impressive- ranging from the cave-like dens and teepees to cabins and stone structures.  these homes are documented in the book “woodstock handmade houses” and turning the pages is like stepping into one hidden world after another, imagining all the stories each sanctuary holds.  it is a constant source of inspiration that will never age.
