Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving, or Hanging Out, We’ve Got you Covered

Anyone else ready to push pause on this year? How can we be just two weeks away from Thanksgiving already? Since we can’t actually pause time, we’ll pull out the eggnog and dive headfirst into the holiday season. If you haven’t had a moment to think about what you’re going to be wearing for the upcoming Thanksgiving festivities, we have you covered, no matter if you’re attending a Friendsgiving, a formal Thanksgiving, just lounging on the couch, or doing all three.

FRIENDSGIVING
Friendsgiving, made popular during the Recession and Friends, has since morphed into an annual celebration for friends to get together and have a fun Thanksgiving celebration before, or in lieu of, visiting their families. If you’re headed to a Friendsgiving this year, we’ve got the perfect casual and cute outfit for you to wear.

Friendsgiving Style at La Ree Boutique

Wearing: Amo Babe Tee and Twist Jean, Isabel Marant Delwood Sweater, and Clergerie Jacnec Boot

SOCIAL THANKSGIVING 
If you’re headed to a more formal Thanksgiving celebration, you’ll want to be comfortable and chic. Up your style game, with a jacket over your comfy tee shirt, and dark denim. Add cute heeled boot and a statement necklace for a that extra pizzazz.
Social Thanksgiving Wearing: 6397 Boy Tee, Vanessa Seward Velvet Jacket, Nili Lotan Alek Jean and Pedro Garcia Engel Bootie

CASUAL THANKSGIVING
If your Thanksgiving crew is more casually inclined (and, hey, why not? You’re going to be eating all day), then layer a cozy sweater over your favorite pair of jeans, toss on your sneakers, and accessorize with an early glass of wine.
Casual Thanksgiving Wearing: Joseph Chunky Cardigan, 3×1 Fray Skinny Denim, and Golden Goose Superstars 

DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING
If you’re headed out for Black Friday shopping or spending the day on the couch with family watching football, give yourself a break and forgo the jeans. Instead, plan an outfit that is comfy and stylish by pairing a cute pair of loose pants with a cozy sweater. Standing outside in cold lines? Bundle up with a cute beanie.
Day After Thanksgiving StyleWearing: Nili Lotan Elise Sweater, Raquel Allegra Easy Pant, Veronica Beard Paxton Beanie and Golden Goose Slide Sneakers

Whatever your plans for Thanksgiving, we want to wish you the very best time!
La Ree store will be closed on Thanksgiving day but back open for the rest of Black Friday weekend!

Celebrate the Fourth of July in Style

We are just under a week away from another great Fourth of July celebration in Seattle!

Since Seattle is so far north, our summer days have more hours of sunlight and our Fourth of July celebrations are extra long as we wait for the sun to go down far enough to watch fireworks against a dark starry sky. In Seattle, the Fourth of July is considered the official start. We’ve been patient, and from here on out, the weather should be high seventies without a cloud in the sky. Sounds like a reason to celebrate, to me.

To get ready for our long evening of celebrating, we’ve picked out a few of our favorite red, white, and blue Fourth of July BBQ-ready outfits. Plus, if you’re planning to take a long weekend to celebrate, you may want to look at packing a few extra looks to start the partying in style early. We’ve got you covered for Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and, of course, the Fourth of July!

We’ve all heard the “joke” that Seattle summers start on the July 5th, but this year, the forecast is looking sunny with no rain! Let’s keep our fingers crossed it stays positive and sunny throughout the weekend.

So, here’s to good weather, good company, good food, and lots of fireworks. It’s time to kick off the Seattle summer with an incredible Fourth of July extra long weekend!

See something you love? Stop by the store, call us, or check out online. We’re here to help.

Happy Fourth of July!

Mothers Day Shopping Event

Mother’s Day Shopping Event!

La Ree is thrilled to honor mothers this Friday with our Mother’s Day Shopping Event! How could we not be? La Ree is only possible with our wonderful staff of new, current, and future moms. And we love spending time and talking with all the moms who walk through our door every day. We know what it means to be a mother and we are so thankful for all the moms in our life. That’s why, this Friday, May 12 from 10am to 5pm, we will be hosting a Mother’s Day Shopping Event at La Ree featuring two incredible brands that have stunning pieces perfect for a last minute Mother’s Day gift, or a treat for yourself!

la ree mothers day event cover

Never Ready for Monday is an adorable, simple, and stylish home brand that was started by two sisters who never felt ready for Monday (who does?) and preferred “bedhead over boardroom.” They decided to create a home store filled with pieces that make your home your sanctuary. Like they say on their website, “this store was created to inspire you, to be that perfect gift you’ve been hunting for, or maybe that little bit of “fluff” you’ve been needing to make your place feel more like home.” We can’t wait to have them in store as part of our upcoming event.

Serpentine Jewelry is a stunning brand that we have in store throughout the year. We cannot wait to show off even more of their pieces at the event on Friday. Each of their pieces is timeless and made with a combination of precious and semi-precious stones paired with natural minerals. Their jewelry fuses “everyday elegance with a natural twist.” Our favorite part about the brand? You can layer several pieces together or wear each piece alone. Plus, their jewelry has that rare versatility to go from day to night with grace.

And, of course, we will also be featuring some of our favorite La Ree pieces for Mother’s Day! We’ve pulled a few of our favorites for Mother’s Day to spark a little shopping inspiration for the upcoming holiday. AND—right now, you can get 20% off one item in store at La Ree through the month of May*! What better excuse to treat yourself or upgrade your mom’s gift than a little extra off?

Feeling Lucky

Everyone has that one item that has a little extra magic in it. Some people call it their lucky item others just say it is a significant piece that has extra meaning to them. Either way, these invaluable items have a special place in our hearts.

Since St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow, we thought it would be fun to feature a few of our staff’s Lucky Items as well as some product in store that feel like they might possess some that same magic. No need to go chasing after any Leprechaun’s, just stop by La Ree to find your new lucky piece!

Kameryns Lucky Jeans

Kameryn’s lucky Levis have been through thick and thin with her. 
We’ve paired with an adorable pair of Pedro Garcia Zissi slide, available in store or online.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! May you have the luckiest Friday!

Looks of Love

The stores are lined with pinks and reds, Cupid is busy, and love is in the air. Whether or not you’re a fan of the Valentine’s Day, it is at least a good excuse to tell the ones you love how you feel, and to practice some self-love as well! One of our favorite quotes this time of year is by Charles Shultz, “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” We are completely on board with that statement, but we think that chocolate can sometimes be replaced by clothes. After all, we are truly, madly, deeply in love with clothes.

In honor of the season, we have picked out a few of our favorite looks of love.

You know what they say, “There is no remedy for love but to love more,” or as we like to put it, there is no remedy for the love of shopping, but to shop more. See you soon, lovelies! <3 

Something catching your eye? Stop by the store to pick out your Valentine’s Day looks or shop online. Going on now, La Ree’s annual winter sale. Get your favorite looks up to 80% off, who doesn’t love getting stunning clothes on sale?

4 Styles to Wear for Your Sunny Vacation

We’re daydreaming of a sunny getaway. Somewhere without rain, or ice, or cold fog. Somewhere that smells like the ocean and coconuts. A chair by a pool with a drink and the sun high in the sky. Seattle has months left of rainy dreary weather and that just won’t do. We are ready for our sunny vacation. And we’ve got our bags already packed with the perfect sunny weather vacation styles.

Bring on 2017 in Nili Lotan

Around this time of year, we often spend time looking back at the previous year and considering everything that didn’t go quite the way we had hoped. It is a time of year where we look to the future and imagine what we want for ourselves and our loved ones. We try to figure ways we can change to make ourselves better: more sleep, less stress, more exercise, less sugar.

But let’s focus on the good! It is a time for renewal and new hope (and hopefully some new styles in the closet!). Yes, it’s true, sometimes the best way to say goodbye to the old is to bring in some new. And, if you’re like us, you’ve been searching for months for the perfect outfit to wear as the clock counts down and we welcome everything 2017 has to offer.

Luckily, just in time for the new year, we have new Nili Lotan available in store!

With these sleek looks, we are ready to kick 2017 off with determination, positivity, and, of course, great style.

It’s going to be a great year.

Christmas Came Early: New Arrivals from R13

We have to admit, we’re the type to sneak a peek at the presents under the tree before Christmas morning. We love getting gifts but we don’t really want to wait to open them. That’s why we were so excited when one of our favorite brands arrived in store. Of course we opened it right away! Inside that generic shipping box was one of the best early holiday presents, new R13 arrivals.

Part of what we love most about getting presents is being able to share them! We’ve styled our favorite new R13 arrivals here for you. Come by the store to shop, or check them out online. Maybe even get yourself a holiday gift to open on Christmas Day. We won’t blame you if you peek beforehand.
