Pitchers and cathers report today! This means Opening Day is just a few weeks away and since I’m the party planner for our crew, I have some tips.
Rent a Portable Bathroom. This is probably the biggest success stories over the years. No more waiting in line for the one and only place to pee in Section E of the parking lot. The ladies love it! We had 4 parking spots one year and just put the thing in the middle. It worked out awesome! Just beware of the potty vultures. It’s also easiest if you call the Ballpark to get their approved contractor. They usually deliver and pick up, you don’t want to handle that s***.
Get there early. Parking is a beast and having a large group every year like we do is always tough to get enough parking for all of us. Encourage car pooling amongst your friends. It’s more fun to drive out there with friends telling stories of old. You’ll probably owe the poor driver a drink or two once you get back home, but it’s worth it!
Grilling is hard. We tried this once. It didn’t work. I would give you the recipe for bacon wrapped jalapeno cheese dogs, but you can just buy them in the stadium these days. Bring breakfast tacos or something along those lines. You won’t believe how fast time flies
Don’t wear jeans. If it’s a sunny day, no matter the temperature don’t wear jeans. Breathable pants are good, or sometimes even shorts. Jeans just don’t work for a day game.
Bring Friends – a lot of them. No need to go into details about that.
A couple weeks ago we hosted a runway show, styled by the fabulous New York fashion & beauty blogger Emily Loftiss of Loftiss Says. She pulled looks from Gameday Cloth & Ella Bleu to create what I personally think was sheer fantasticness.
Our cute models included Alex of Eat.Style.Dallas. and Carly Patterson, 2004 Olympic gold medalist, along with wonderful customers who volunteered to model whatever we threw at them. We got lots of love from local bloggers, including Molly from Pretty in Pink, Alexis of Stylish Gameday and even a shout out from Cynthia of Oh So Cynthia. All around, it was a fun night and if you missed it you need to make sure you not only watch the video from the night, but put it on your calendar next time we post an event.
Can you believe it? It’s tomorrow. I am stinkin’ excited for this event. I love a good fashion show. Remember: Tomorrow, Thursday Aug 30th. Beginning at 5:30 and going until the last person leaves.
Beer. Football. Fashion. Astroturf & Emily Loftiss. What more is there?
This is one of my very favorite times of year. It’s not just the beginnings of football season AND Shark Week, but it’s Fashion Season! Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is gearing up in NYC, with every other show following around the world. And here in the retail world we have Fashion’s Night Out coming up September 6, 2012 to promote shopping, mixing and mingling.
Since we’ve never exactly followed the rules at Gameday Cloth (ie: pairing zip-back flat bills with cardigans and loafers on men, offering fabulous current trends in women’s sports apparel), we’re having our own night. Thursday, August 30th here in the store we will be kicking off football season. And unless you live under a rock, or just don’t really care about the unofficial sport of the South, then you already know the University of Michigan and the University of Alabama will be facing off at Cowboys Stadium that Saturday! (go SEC! *ahem*)
We’ll share more deets soon, but put it on your calendar for 2 WEEKS FROM TODAY! However, first and foremost, we are looking for models. As I said, it’s Fashion Season! We’re spicing up our usual Tailgate Party with a Fashion Show, displaying all the latest trends, styles and all-around amazingness we have to offer here at Gameday Cloth. But we need you, our pretty little friends, as our models. There’s store credit to be had or possibly, if you rock it hard enough, you can keep your clothes from us. Men & women, high school through “when did I graduate?” We’re looking for you all. Contact me directly if you want to talk about it but ACT FAST. This event is 2 weeks from today.
I’m giddy about it I’m so excited. We have so many cool things in store for you. It’s awesome.
Email me at email@example.com. Let me know your basic info: male/female, size, coloring, team, age, etc. And make sure you put our Fashion Tailgate on your calendar!!! Thursday, Aug 30th. And we need YOU to get in on it and model with us.
Three years in a row. I am so excited, proud, nostalgic and all around happy for my alma mater. For those of you out there in the SEC or from Big 12 programs you are used to this frequently, but for SMU in Dallas, Texas, to be going to a Bowl Game for the third year in a row – it’s a proud moment as an alumnus.
We have to celebrate! This is a moment!
But we aren’t just celebrating one day. No, this deserves more than that. We are celebrating all week. Come to Gameday Cloth in Shops at Legacy North Wednesday, Jan 4th: 5-7pm for an SMU Happy Hour where we will provide you with the latest in awesome Mustang fashion and a chance to win a gift card to make your watch party at Plano’s 1st & 10 even better!
And come to Gameday Cloth Mockingbird Station Thursday, Jan 5th: 5-7pm for an SMU Happy Hour with even more and different Mustang fashion and a chance for a Lakewood’s 1st & 10 gift card.
Even better? Watch at either location and you have a shot at winning Gameday Cloth gift cards!
We’re Mustangs, baby! And it’s time to get excited!!
Check out the official event information here.
PS – This is me at the Armed Forces Bowl last year. Fitting as we, as I mentioned, are in another bowl game this year. So excited!
