Yep it’s here, the first day of March, and the light at the end of the winter tunnel is in sight! For today’s post I have decided to highlight some (of the many) things we have to look forward to this month – in no particular order…
Spring-like weather isn’t too too far away - Now I know this all depends on where everyone is located but whether mother nature cooperates or not -spring weather can’t be too far away. While the snow just may now turn into rain showers, at least we have (hopefully) left the massive snow drifts and zero degree weather behind
Spring Break Season! - Grab one of our towel sets and head on south, because it’s time for SB! Even if you can’t travel to warmer temps this spring break season you can still get excited about the week-long holiday (some of us) are still able to celebrate. Check out my earlier blog post about our love for all that is spring break here.
St. Patrick’s Day - All around the world people are celebrating the infamous St. Patrick’s Day on Wednesday March 17th this year. Get into the mood with an understated kelly green outfit.
March Madness – Now I know that some of us are more into this than others. However those of you who live and breathe basketball better have your brackets together soon as play starts on March 16. Marianne in our art/creative department is a die-hard KU fan and will be singing Rock Chalk all tournament long!
Marathons are abound - Perhaps some of you are runners? If so, possibly you are running in one of the hundreds of half and full marathons going on around the country this month. One of the largest in the country is the Shamrock Marathon (1/2 and children’s races) in Virginia Beach March 20/21. In fact The 38th Annual Yuengling Shamrock Marathon has been named Runner Up, as the Most Family-Friendly Marathon by Runner’s World Magazine in Jan 2010. So it looks like running can also be fun for the whole family. You can find one near you by visiting this handy guide.
Spring clothes/accessories are everywhere! - Celebrate spring’s impending arrival with some bright plaids and florals. Like that cute plaid jacket pictured above from BodenUsa. Or with some cute bright accessories from our new collections!
CAMEX 2010 – March 13-15 is the annual College Bookstore Show and this year it is in Orlando, FL which is super close to us here at Room It Up. We have exhibited for the last 3 years and always have a fun time showing our collection to the college bookstore buyers! We are excited to be there again this year!
How are you gearing up for spring? Have any fun plans this March? Leave a comment and let us know!
