It's really that easy; I'm not kidding. In addition to winning something just for supporting us, you will be entered to win a Sitka surfboard (a $750 value)!!! The grand prize winner will be announced in the beginning of Summer 2009, giving you plenty of time to USE your fresh new Sitka goodie.

So, swoop into the nearest Coastal, and mention this promo to get your new Coastal shirt for only 9 bucks!!! That alone, is a $15 value!!! Once you have your shirt on, go for a walk, go to class, come back in to Coastal, whatever, but just BE SEEN wearing it! Another way to get involved is to take a picture of you in your shirt (and ALL of your friends!!!) and send the pics in to, along with your info, to be entered into the contest that way.

Lux Riot Party!

Once upon a time a group of friends decided to create a work space that would make magic. Magic is not an easy commodity to create, but these friends were driven. They were tired of the over produced, over used, and under paid trend that companies were following when it came to prodcution. They wanted to give their friends and the community around them something tangible that mattered. They wanted to give small companies and like mided individuals the ability to get there message out amongst the masses. They wanted, as it turned out, to screen t-shirts.

I'm not kidding. That's pretty much the story of Luxe Riot. With adjectives like
"magic" thrown in there to rouse the senses, but it's non-fiction. Luxe Riot is nestled in Wallignford right up the hill from Gas Works park. They run their business out of an old warehouse, that is in place for YOU to come utilize. We have been getting Coastal threads printed here for years, and have always found them to be WONDERFUL to work with.

They are throwing an open-house/party on December 6 and 7th. Other retailers and local companies will have some sweet deals too. So, go check it out, you will NOT be disappointed. Unless you hate magic.

Scarfs, Hats, Mittens...Oh My!!!

There are few thing as annoying as being unprepared for a frigid Seattle morning. Freezing ears, fingers that won't thaw out, that pesky wind blowing down the back of your shirt, and numbing your poor chin. It's the pits. So, why not give the ol' 1, 2, punch to winter cold and bundle up in our assortment of incredible scarves, hats, and mittens, from Coal Headwear? Coal, based out of Seattle since 2002, understands the woes of Winter bound Seattleites. They are committed to offering up the best quality, inarguably softest, assortment every year, and I just fall back in love with them. Cold weather've met your match. Right here in the Emerald City.

We still have suits!

As Seattle-Fall appropriate the current drizzly weather is, I can't help but imagine a holiday in the sun. I mean quite literally, spending my Holidays in the sun. Surfing Santa, a sandy palm tree with lights strung around, a bikini, and 12 days of surfing. No sugar plums, no reindeer, no partridges in pear trees. Just a grand dose of sun and sea water.

Sadly, this isn't how I will be spending my Holidays, but one can dream....right? If YOU are one of the lucky ones finding yourself grasping a boarding pass to south of the border, and getting out of Dodge for the Holidays, then we are here to help! Coastal carries suits, flip flops, boardshorts(for guys, too) YEAR ROUND. Of course, we still carry our fantastic assortment of Fall looks, coats, scarves, dresses, etc., but don't look us over when in need of that Holiday outfit of all outfits: your bathing suit. So, if the thought of pulling your ratty old suit on sends shivers down your spine, don't panic! Get into Coastal! We'll get you all "suited" up!

Here are some newbies we just got in....(yes, we are still getting NEW styles in!)

Throw a PARTY!

Why not? I swear my blood sugar levels have just barely leveled out after the influx of Halloween ladened celebration, but I'm ready for the next bout! Let us not forget that a SLEW of Holidays are just around the corner. What better way to get in the mood for shindiggin' than a new frock?!? Let's be honest, that little girl that gets excited on ruffly skirts, taffeta, and skirts that swirl when you spin in them, is in there SOMEWHERE. Sure, you may have traded your side ponytail in for a more sophisticated up-do, your mary janes for some Manolo's, and your taffeta for some crepe. Wise move, sister. But here are some dresses we still think you'll any age.
