Here comes Summer

Like clock work Memorial Weekend kicks off the summer season in Leavenworth.  It's funny how that works- it's like a curtain is lifted and our customers immediately shift from large convention like work groups to families with 2.5 kids. I like it though.... it's nice to have various "seasons" of customers to suite various "seasons" of weather.

The other nice thing about retail seasons is the product change. Honestly- after you have folded the Same Stack of jeans or steamed and re-hung the same sweater dress you get very anxious for new new new product to feast your eyes (and merchandising fingers) on.

Building up to the holiday weekend I cracked the retail whip and hustled in some new summer treats. So glad I did because we had surprisingly sunny (no rain) weather in Leavenworth. With the sunny weather comes an appetite for summer dress', light weight tanks, and sandals - all of which Mapel had full stock in.

Don't despair if you missed out on Memorial Weekend in L'worth..... If you know anything about "The Little Town that Could" you know we have as many festivals as we do beer steins. Lucky for you this coming weekend is another "Fav'sies Festivals" of ours. Wine Walk. Enough said- right?

Next weekend will be the 8th annual wine walk- and for the first time- Mapel is hosting a winery!!! Yes.... you read that correctly. This Saturday you can find new summer dress', havaianas sandals, premium denim, signature chocolate truffles + Wine!!!! Briilliant.
