It’s March! The meteorological equivalent of Hump Day. Look outside your home office window: Is that greenery that’s not pine-related?
Spring is just around the corner and as we move through Women’s History Month, we celebrate today: International Women’s Day. As female entrepreneurs and proud proprietors of a women-owned business, the celebrations in March strike a big, resounding chord with us.
And because we could all use a little zhuzh (or zhoosh if you prefer) for this year’s Women’s History Month, we’ve put together something special for you. Amanda Nemec, our super-talented in-house designer, also runs her own small-batch apparel and accessory design business, Studio Guise. So we’ve joined women-owned forces with Amanda and produced two limited edition tees (in short and long-sleeve versions, to cover you during those spring temperature swings).
Our Holly & Tanager x Studio Guise tee was designed to celebrate all the faces of sisterhood.
We hope you’ll take March as an opportunity to shop other women-owned businesses, too. Women entrepreneurs still confront big obstacles, but our numbers and strength continue to grow. We’re role models for every generation of women – so, we invite you to shop and join us in starting something new.
Which brings me to the other big Holly & Tanager March news: our Spring color launch.
That’s right, our Pro backpack tote isn’t just about neutrals anymore. Meet our Glacier and Sunshine colors. We’ve always loved bright color bags – they’re fashion’s version of the exclamation mark.
And now that all our bags are made with recycled nylon, we can offer color with confidence. If your Pro backpack tote picks up a little schmutz, just wash it off with cold water and mild dish soap – no special cleaner needed. The material is so durable that it will hold its color and its shape. It’s downright inspiring: We are literally dreaming in color these days.
May you find joy in all – or at least most – of your woman-hours during March. And if you’re skeptical, take a walk outside and get it straight from another girlfriend, Mother Nature: Better times are ahead.
