  1. We cannot believe it is already August.  Where does summer go?!  Every year, it feels like it is gone before it even starts and we always feel like our summer bucket lists are barely scratched.  

    But, as summer draws to a close and we start to prep for kids going to back to school, cooler temps, different schedules, etc., we take time to reflect back on all that we have been able to do these few short months.  From weddings to trade shows, SUPing, camping, hiking and other fun adventures to awe inspiring wildlife encounters and BBQs with great friends, we've packed a lot into our often times chaotic schedule.  And it is those moments and memories that we are forever grateful for.  

    So as we get closer to the Fall season, and our brand partners are calling us about Fall shipments (coming soon!), let's celebrate what's left of summer!  We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than to offer fantastic savings on Spring 2015 styles.  Consider it our gift to you for being fantastic and loyal customers.

    Cheers to what is left of summer and cheers to you!



  2. May is the Month of Beach & Sun at Outdoormountainspirit.com.  That said, there has been no “beach going” or even any sun to speak of in Colorado.  In fact, it snowed here in Steamboat yesterday and this morning I had to scrape ice off my car before going to the gym.  What is that all about?! 
     
    It makes us long for days when you can feel the hot sun baking your skin and there is not a single cloud in the sky.  Those are the days when weather isn’t keeping you inside, but it is the main motivator for getting you outside and active.  Long runs on dry trails, girls mountain bike rides filled with sweat and laughs, swimming at the local watering hole, road biking until you can no longer feel your bum because the ride is just too beautiful to ignore…and so much more.
     
    Hopefully we can provide you with plenty of inspiration for your Beach & Sun adventures that are on the horizon.   And if it isn’t already, may the sun soon kiss your tanned skin and makes you smile from the inside out.



    MAY IS THE MONTH OF BEACH & SUN!

  3. April is Athletic Apparel month at Outdoormountainspirit.com!  

    Now is the time of year, when we clean out our cold weather closet and start to make room for warm weather attire.  One of my personal favorites is digging out last year’s workout gear and figuring out what I need this year.  I get a certain personal satisfaction from knowing I look good at the gym, even if I am covered in sweat and grunting through the last few rounds of an exercise.  I am also a woman on the go, especially after the gym, with kids to feed, errands to run, etc. I like to wear athletic clothing that I know will translate to being out in public while I whiz around town trying to check off every last thing from my checklist.
     

    So, I also love putting together our Fitness Fanatic Style Guides with this concept in mind.  We have new arrivals coming in every week now, so we will be updating you with more Fitness Fanatic Style Guides as the month goes on, but for this week, we wanted to present you with….

  5. You are cordially invited to join OMS for a journey through WWSRA, a regional show for outdoor clothing that took place at the Denver Merchandise Mart last week.  This show is a critical piece to our business as it is where we meet with all of our vendors to determine what product mix we will have for upcoming seasons.  This week’s show….SPRING 2015!  So many great designs, so many wonderful colors.  We can’t wait to share them with you next Spring. 


    While being a buyer may seem glamorous to many, it can be quite difficult to balance the various aspects that make up the perfect color stories, product mixes and trends for a season one year from when you are actually buying.  It’s like a puzzle and you have to try and guess where all of the pieces go….but it is the most wonderful challenge we could imagine when presented by wonderful designs from our favorite brands.



    Things we consider when making our buys:
    1. Brands – who are the hottest brands out there and who is up and coming? Carve Designs was just voted one of the biggest up and coming brands. Darn Tough socks will be new to our line in the Fall.
    2. Design trends – which brands stay ahead of the curve and continue to push the envelope on designs? Lole is playing with floral prints and layered fabrics of varying weights.  Carve Designs continues to impress with unique and daring prints and patterns.
    3. Product categories – you can’t buy too many bottoms without balancing it all out with tops.  You should always analyze which items also sell best for your business and focus most on them.
    4. Color trends – what color stories make sense across all of your brands?  Spring 2015 is trending toward bright and bold colors like greens, oranges and yellows.  Neons are even coming into play!
    5. Imagery – when you sell online, you must work with brands that value high quality imagery and great lifestyle shots.  It’s so much easier to know what clothes look like on the body and in motion!
    6. Pricing – determine who your consumer is and make sure your price point matches their buying behavior. 
    And there is so much more to the buying process, but this gives you a Sneak Peek into all of the considerations we make every season to bring you the absolute best in Outdoor Fashion!
