Stay Engaged in August
Our central merchandising topics this month will center around basking in the last days of summer and planning ahead for autumn. You'll find the extended list of topics we're excited to highlight below.
• Back to School: Wardrobe and decor updates: hints of plaid and light outerwear, functional furniture, dorm room solutions and essentials for a new or first apartment. Office and organizational supplies: journals, sketchbooks, portfolios, papers, writing utensils, pouches, backpacks, desks, storage solutions, and creative organizational concepts.
• Fall Fashion Preview: Textured thick fabrics and leather, outerwear, accessories, layering components, boots and chunky shoes, deep earth tones and rich color palettes. Classic autumn patterns and prints: houndstooth, plaid, polka-dots, florals, and pinstripes; statement jewelry and accessories.
• Intro to Harvest: Savoring the last bounties of the crop, storing and canning, references to the orchard, vineyard, ripening wines, and hints of autumn richness in the air.
• Full Halloween Preview: Introductions to Halloween themes as we gear up to promote this notoriously creative holiday. Early focuses will touch upon both playful and dark decor, costuming, DIY options, party planning, and the metaphysical side of the celebration.
• Bath, Beauty & Wellness: Skin and body treatments, activewear, meditation aids, and healthy options for mind and body conscious routines.
• Home Decor: Similar to the fashion world, autumn decor updates and renovations will debut in August. Woodland references, natural colors, rich fabrics, the hearth, and played-up textures.
• Weddings and Celebrations: Summery embellishments, last-minute details and gift options
• Peridot ,Leo (July 23 - August 23) Virgo (August 24 - September 23).

August Trend Forecast and Mainstays:
• Fashion Runway Report: Cargo and military styles, leopard and animal prints, faux furs, minimalistic gray and camel palettes, clean cuts, big silhouettes, a renewed bohemian style and the concept of over-the-top grandeur in the form of loud prints and big jewelry.
• The World in Sports: The U.S. Tennis Open Tournament at the end of the month will resurrect classic sports gear and tennis references.
• Halloween: Celebrity references, film and pop culture reinventions, clever costuming plays on words, pet costumes, group options, vampire themes, folk and vintage decor, photobooth props, and the classic color combinations (orange, black, yellow, white, red, green, purple).
• The Technical World: portable gadgets and how to accessorize them for function and style. Clever and luxurious plays on gadget cases/carriers and docking solutions for the iPad.
• The Industrial Home: Open floor plans and loft-like spaces accented with industrial era decor elements. That mix of minimalism, exposed beams, duct work, steel, wire, and glass bulbs lend to the modern-yet-rustic feel. Converted farm and factory machinery, railroad equipment, restaurant-ware, stage and commercial office lighting and re-imagining decor uses for salvaged materials from the past.
• Weekend at the River House: Camping, hiking, boating, fishing, and outdoor excursions. Vintage retro accessories mixed with modern gear and essentials.
• The County Fair: Circus and carnival themes, sideshow wonders, animals, bright colors and foods.
• Personalization: Custom names, initials, monograms, quotes, phrases, fingerprints, and numbers.
• Natural History: Nature, taxidermy, raw minerals and stones, feathers, foliage, claws, charts, diagrams, bones, antlers, and species.
• Color Trends: Punches of turquoise, richer earth tones, mustards, cranberry, muted greens, gray and camel solids. Patterns in leopard, bright geometric, houndstooth, pinstripes, and plaid.

Happy August everyone! And Happy Friendship Day (I only just found out)!

Congrats Elf on so many FPs! I'm sure the sales will come. I never buy anything when I first see it, I favorite it for later; I am sure lots of other people do that too.

I am leaving for the beach today. Just have to finish up the laundry and packing and then wake up the boy! I'll be back Thursday and I'll pop in when I can.

My head is pounding and eyes are itching from allergies this morning, hope the pills kick in soon.

Erica, have fun at the beach.

That's amazing, Efi. After all that I'm sorry there weren't any sales. Hope you're relaxing a bit now that the wedding is over.

The beach sounds inviting. Have fun, Erica.

Congrats on the Blues Challenge win, Katherine!
