As summer comes to a close, and fall begins to breathe a sigh of cool relief, we leave behind the hustle and bustle of Glasgow and head for quieter, cozy pastures. From windswept highland farms to the far-flung isles of the Outer Hebrides, to the northernmost Shetland Islands, our newest styles draw inspiration from Scotland’s rural (coastal and countryside) regions.
This fall, Scottish florals are blooming all around…and we’ve got a bouquet of beautiful new prints for your little ladies! Learn more about Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the famed designer who inspired many of the lovely floral graphics featured on our girls dresses and tees.
From rugged mountains to rolling green hills, to its expansive vistas of sea and islands, Scotland (though a relatively small country) is famous for its incredibly diverse landscape. And its colorful history is rich in tradition and symbolism.
But it’s not all tartan kilts and bagpipes. Many of Scotland’s oldest, most well-known symbols feature wee beasties, both real and fabled. From the cheerful Scotty dog to the heraldic leòmhann (that’s Gaelic for lion) to the country’s mythical mascot, the unicorn, get the inside scoop on Scotland’s iconic animals.
It’s official…school has begun, and we could not be more excited! There’s just something about back-to-school season that gives us a feeling of renewal. It’s a time to start fresh – with new teachers, new classmates, fresh new school supplies and a whole new look.
We know back to school shopping can be a bit overwhelming, so to help make things easy we’ve compiled our favorite stylish looks for girl and boy to offer a little outfit inspiration for the season. See our round up of playground to picture day-ready styles, perfectly fit for your little citizens!
Thank you for supporting our Inspiring Little Citizens finalists. Together we donated over $37,000 to five amazing kids!
From painting and delivering 150 pictures to a local nursing home, to collecting pop tabs to help support the medical programs provided to families by the Ronald McDonald House, these kiddos are changing lives for the better. And thanks to the Tea community (all of you), they each now have $7,451.65 to make an even bigger difference.
Read more about Cash, Lilyanne, Savannah, Bridger and Lillian and the good they’re doing in their communities. We can’t wait to see what they do next with their donations!
It’s that time of year…Summer is winding down, and kids across the country are starting to file into their new classrooms. To help you prepare for another exciting back to school season, we’ve teamed up with a few of our favorite back to school partners to put together the ultimate back-to-school prize pack.
