Nope, no one at Poppy Barley got married this week. But we were included in SWEPT Bridal's 2015 promotional photo shoot by Erin Walker! The bride's "Something Blue" became our Blue Jean Baby Feminine Slipper (only 38 pairs left!) and looked pretty darn coordinated with the groom's navy blue suit. Collective "awe" from us. You can sign up to be notified about more information on SWEPT 2015 here.
Here's what else happened this week:
We celebrated Canada Day on Tuesday with picnics and fireworks under Edmonton's High Level Bridge. Today: Happy 4th of July to our American friends and customers! We're still celebrating YOU with a $25 discount on all blue and red shoes. Offer expires tonight at 11:59 pm MST!
Our founders, Kendall and Justine, left today for the Sinister 7 relay race. That's 100 miles in Alberta's Rocky Mountains and they have 30 hours to complete it. We cheered from afar (see us doing so below). Talk about inspiring!
We launched an official Poppy Barley Referral Program! Receive a $15 credit for each friend that makes a purchase. Friends you refer will receive free shipping on their orders. Friends who shop together, stay together.
We received a shipment of new Fall samples! (More block heels and/or animal prints may or may not be coming...)
Speaking of our Limited Edition Collection 02, there's only 10 more days to get in on our Pinterest contest with ATB and Ania B., where you could WIN $500 in custom shoes by putting together your favourite Stampede-inspired looks. Go here for more details.
