While half the team was moving a little slower today after last night's boisterous Mercer Family Christmas Party
at Startup Edmonton
, the other half was up early and on the road to Calgary at 8am for our popup at The Heather Co.
(it's happening right now
, until 8pm tonight)! Tomorrow, we'll be measuring you at Vine Styles and treating you to holiday cupcakes by Crave (ingredients below!). Details for both events here

What else is happening?
We've been reading:
- Probably the biggest news of all: we launched our Men's Collection in beta! As for orders, of the five styles we've launched, the Vancouver Chukka Boot in Navy (pictured below) is the winning style so far. We're in invite-only mode until we're ready to take on more orders, so sign up to the Access List and you'll be hearing from us! You can also follow along on the happenings with our Men's Collection on Twitter and Instagram.
- We polled you about introducing Poppy Barley Men's shoe styles in women's sizes. (Seems to be a resounding YES.)
- We also just announced our very first accessories collaboration: Poppy Barley x Berg & Betts Upcycled Watches. Berg & Betts gives new life to the earliest Poppy Barley boot samples. Read our Q&A with the designers, Jessie and Emily, here.
- We've just announced the FINAL popup shop of the year taking place at lululemon athletica Whyte Ave in Edmonton on Wednesday, Dec. 10th, from 4-8pm. In addition to having all of our women's styles on display, this will be your FIRST opportunity to shop our Men's Collection (even if you haven't been granted official access online yet!). We'll also be launching more Metallic Gold options for The Contemporary Ballet, will have wrapped Gift Card Packages available for purchase, and will be treating you to David's Tea and Bloom Cookie Co. Walk-ins welcome, but you can book ahead of time here.
- There's only five pairs of Bordeaux boots left! When we say "Limited Edition", we mean it.
- On Saturday night, we'll be surprising one company in Edmonton with Poppy Barleys at their staff Christmas party! We are so excited. Here are all the ways your can bring Poppy Barley into your life over the holidays, including Corporate Gift Cards at discounted rates for your rock star team.
- Have you checked out our new Ready-to-Wear Collection? Sizes 7 to 9 in standard widths, on your feet in two weeks. Some of you are lucky enough to fit into standard sizes, but want the comfort, and not the wait. This is your answer!
- We added the Black Contemporary Ballet Flat to the shop. It doesn't get more classic than this!
Have a cozy + relaxing weekend!
