March on into… MARCH!

March 1st, 2010 by alex | No Comments | Filed in Daily Musings

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!

Home Sweet Home

February 17th, 2010 by alex | No Comments | Filed in Trade Shows

The ending of Toy Fair in NYC today marks the end of our busy trade show schedule for January and February.  Together members of the Room It Up team traveled and worked on  a record 6 shows throughout the past 7 weeks.  Whew!  That being said we had a great time launching the new Room It Up spring collection to a variety of different retailers and audiences.  A big thank you goes out to all of you that stopped by our booth at any of the shows and helped make this January and February a great and productive couple of months.  Meanwhile the travel crew here at RIU is happy to unpack our suitcases and settle back into our offices until mid March (for CAMEX of course!)

With all of our travels came all sorts of new finds and insights that I will be sure to share with you here on our blog in some upcoming posts.  Be sure to stay tuned.

Like the cute red print above?  You can see it on Etsy here.

Sorry to all for the couple week hiatus from posting on our blog.  Check out below for a quick rundown of the fun and exciting things that have been happening at our Stuart, FL HQ!!!

We were so excited we created a special promo just for Facebook friends and fans.  Have you joined yet?  If not, head on over to the Room It Up Fan Page and connect with us today.  As always, we are always looking to hear feedback from our loyal customers, like you.  We think that our fan page is a great place to gather some of your insights so keep up the posting!
  2. The Holidays are here! Okay, it still may be only October, but our office is already starting to feel the Holiday buzz.  We are encouraging all of our great retailers to stock up early this year for the best selection of our products.  Retailers, if you haven’t already taken advantage of the shipping promotions be sure to do so soon… they expire at the end of this month.  Click here to view a copy of our Room It Up Holiday 2009 Catalog.  The majority of our best selling products are currently in stock and ready to ship, so go ahead and get shopping!  Need some more inspiration?  Check out what Christie from the blog Simple Finds will be getting from RIU this holiday season for the loved ones on her list.
  3. Tennessee is on our mind. November 4-11 Fred, our Director of Sales, and I are heading up to Tennessee for the International Gift Exposition in the Smokies.  We are excited to show off all of our great products to the great Zoo, Aquarium and other various attraction retailers that are going to be there.  Are you heading to Sevierville this Novemeber too?  If so, be sure to check out the Room It Up Booth at spaces 1207/1208.  I for one can’t wait to see the change of seasons and have a taste of fall weather!
  4. Spring 2010 is in the air! We are working hard to create one of the best new product launches ever for this January.  We know you are all excited to see what’s next and let me tell you, from what I’ve seen thus far you are all going to LOVE it!  Loads of bright colors and new designs that are just going to scream fun!  We always want to keep our loyal fans and customers in the know.  Be sure to subscribe to our Facebook and Twitter Pages, as well as our blog to be one of the first to see what’s new!
