    Quirky, unique charm is one of the best reasons we all love visiting (or living in) resort towns. From vacation havens to summer pilgrimages, getting to our favorite ‘home away from home’ is a great way to see what America is really all about at its core.

    What really distinguishes these towns is the traditions and customs they each carry. Check out these three great examples of some fun traditions a few small towns offer visitors and residents.

  • What is Nautical Style Clothing?

    SocialSquareNauticalStyle

    Nautical style is one of the most popular subsets of the preppy style. It includes enduring items such as cable knit sweaters, boat shoes and new takes such as anchor hoodies. Many people are under the impression that designers, at a loss for a new fashion cue, simply appropriated the style from the clothes being worn by those involved in nautical pursuits. However, the actual story is far more interesting than that.

    The term ‘preppy’ has now become quite a generic one and its original meaning is often forgotten. The ‘prep’ in ‘preppy’ refers to the university-preparatory schools in the Northeastern U.S. Wealthy families have been sending their children to these schools for well over 100 years to prepare them for what they hope will be an Ivy League tertiary education. At both the preparatory schools and Ivy League universities, there has always been a strong focus on extra-curricular activities.

  • A History of Preppy Clothing

    HistoryOfPreppyStyle_800x800

    Preppy clothing’s roots can be traced back to the private universities of the early 1900s in the Northeastern United States. More specifically, it was considered as a uniquely Ivy League way to dress. Those who attended Ivy League schools were usually quite affluent and had grown up with old money. As a result, this style of clothing reflected popular upper class activities in New England at the time, such as rowing, golf, polo, and sailing. Historically, the style is associated with being well-educated and having a high income, but things have changed over the years and now people from all walks of life are welcomed to enjoy these clothes.

    CHANGE YOUR LUCK THIS FRIDAY THE 13th (1)
    It's Friday the 13th. Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. Although this happened just 6 years ago in 2009, it won't happen again until 2026. Straight from the never-wrong Wikipedia (but really, I'm pretty sure it's right in this case), I read that the next Friday the 13th in February won't be until 2026.

    In honor of such a rare occurrence, and to help change that "bad luck" aura surrounding Friday the 13th, we're celebrating by offer $13 off all orders over $30. Just enter the code LUCKY13 on the shopping cart page to apply your discount. Cannot be combined with any other coupons.

    Code is valid today and tomorrow (2/13-2/14/15) but won't be valid again until 2/13-2/14/26. That's a really long time to wait.
