I get so delighted when I see us (Eileen Fisher, Inc.) in the press. Hopefully I am not sounding too shallow. Having been a press whore once or twice in my past life I know how hard it is to get a placement in the industry rags.
Open up this month’s copy of The Oprah magazine to page 184 and view a great photo
taken by Roger Neve of our product being worn in South Africa. This is a wonderful example of mixing designers, high-end Vera Wang and mid-range Eileen Fisher.

Do not forget to make a trip to our EF stores this week beginning Thursday for our end of season spring/summer sales. We have many EF Tunics going on sale that are great to pair with a simple legging for an easy look this season.
Just remember when shopping go organic, look for any opportunity to purchase garments of renewable materials such as those produced with corn, plant cellulose, silky soy, bamboo, undyed alpaca wool, or re purposed vintage fabrics.
Please allow me to direct you to a few brands that will provide you an opportunity to shop organic:
http://www.slingandstones.com/ for Men’s and Women’s denim.
http://www.projectalabama.com/ for great T shirts

Nothing is more fashionable than good health. Try to eat organic foods this summer. That is my main goa-l to become a Locavore (someone who prefers eating locally produced food) by the time Fall rolls around.
Cooperative farm, farm stands, and the many farmers markets are the way to go this summer. Find and eat local, such as in-season fruit at the farmers market. Support local farmers by buying locally grown food. You can find a Local co-op by using the link below. www.LocalHarvest.org & try massfarmersmarkets.org
No matter where you go or what you do this summer think about carbon offsets- check out http://www.drivinggreen.com%20t/to find out how you can purchase them on behalf of your many summer traveling and other experiences.
And one last reminder please do not forget your sun block.
