As spring arrives, I’ve been thinking about tenderness. (And it feels especially appropriate this week since the new blossoms are out on the branches.)
I recently shared with some friends that I feel like the world tries to beat tenderness out of us with its speed and brightness and anxiety. There were nods around the table. Spring, on the other hand, is a great refresher. We can let go of some of the bundled-up, practicality of winter. Spring gives us permission to be more tender, more forgiving, more amazed.
For Amour, that means a place where you can escape the routine and be gentle with yourself. It also means beautiful basics, soft bridal pieces, and colors like petal, milk, lilac and cerulean. We hope you'll come visit this spring.
So many things shape our thinking and planning at Amour. Here are a handful of readings, videos, and songs that have inspired us recently. We hope they inspire you, too.

We're getting ready for our annual trip to New York to find beautiful things for all of you. So this week we need to make a little room. Come and enjoy 20% off storewide and 40% off swimsuits through Saturday. It’s a good week to treat yourself and tell us what you’d like to see more of before we head off to NYC.
For First Friday, August 5th, we have teamed up with Illuminate Yoga’s Lynn Marie Nelson to offer a Karma Yoga class. Karma Yoga is a donation-based class that benefits an organization in the community. We have chosen the Pinky Swear Foundation which offers assistance to families dealing with childhood cancer. The class will be a gentle flow designed to help you regroup and relax. As a yoga teacher and long-time yogi, I have a heart for this practice and hope you’ll join us.
From 5:30-6:30 we’ll be visiting, browsing and shopping and then we will close the doors at 6:30 to begin our class. There will be a jar for donations.
Please bring a mat and be ready to relax.

We'll be spring cleaning this month and maybe you will too. . .
As you clean up and clean out, don't forget your "top drawer." Now through Mother's Day, bring in any of your worn out or "just not right" bras. We will gladly recycle the worn out bras with Bra Recyclers, and if you have bras that don't work for you, but are gently worn, we will donate them to a local women's organization.
As a nice bonus you will also get 10% off a new bra for doing what you want to do anyway…get things ship shape. We look forward to helping you!
