I don’t know about you, but I live in Utah, where the winters are so freezing cold that swimsuits and beaches seem like a far-off dream. Seems like sunglasses don’t fit anywhere in that picture, right? Wrong! No matter where you live, sunglasses are still a necessity, even during the wintertime. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been driving down a snowy or wet freeway on a sunny winter day, when the sun is reflecting off the wet road and straight into my eyes. Not safe driving conditions, obviously. So what do I do when that happens? Well I reach for my sunglasses, of course! But you know what’s even worse than the sun reflecting off the snow while I’m driving? When my sunglasses have been sitting in my freezing car for so long that they give me a brain freeze when I put them on! Brain freezes are only okay when I’m eating a cherry-red popsicle on a hot summer day. But during a freezing cold Utah winter? No thanks! That’s why I keep using my Lou Lou all year long! Even if I don’t need my sunglasses with my while I roam around the mall during a snowstorm, I do need to keep them warm so I can use them while I drive. If you keep your sunglasses in your Lou Lou and carry them in your purse/backpack/stroller/gym bag/etc., they’ll stay warm so that you can use them all winter long – without getting the dreaded brain freeze.
So a few days ago Avenue Lou celebrated National Sunglasses Day! Did you? What a celebration we had!! We lined up all of our sunglasses and our cases and figured out how many variations we could come up with.. Zillions!!
Ok Ok, we didn’t really do this and we had no idea that there was a National Sunglasses Day. We wondered how Sunglasses got there very own day? So we figured that since Avenue Lou has the best case for sunglasses, why not have a Sunglasses Case day which of course would be the very next day.
What types of things would happen on this day? These area few ideas Lou had,
1. Everyone would get an Avenue Lou sticker that says “My sunglasses WANT to be a “Never Nude” Lou thinks this is funny and we promise it is, you have to watch Arrested Development to know how clever we are.
2. There would be a billboard that says National Sunglasses CASE Day
Those are all of the ideas we had so far, we are excited about this new day in light of our discovery that there is a National Sunlgasses Day. So happy that we have bodacious days like that.
Thebest sunglass cases are no doubt made by Avenue Lou. But sometimes it’s hard to take our word for it when we obviously are the biggest advocates of our products. So of course to prove it, we offer a money back guarantee for all of our cases. No way can we let you get those sunnies scratched, lost or broken any more, Getcha one!
Many people have asked us which is our most popular case. We will list them off in case you haven’t seen our product page. Yellow Sunglass Case (Yellow Chevron), Grey Sunglass Case (Grey Chevron), Blue Sunglass Case (Navy Maze), Black & White Sunglass Case (Black & White Quatrefoil), Green Sunglass Case (Green Quatrefoil) and our Corral Sunglass Case (Corral Trellis) As far as which one is the most popular fortunately for us they have all gone through phases of being the most orderered or the most popular. Lately its been Yellow Chevron, and then it changes suddenly to Corral Trellis. Overall we probably have seen them all even out. Navy Maze might have a slight edge. But don’t let us tell you! You might as well get them all. In fact if you do want to get them all, we have a special discount code for that. Send us an email requesting it at email@example.com and we will send it your way..
As we get closer to Mothers Day many people have noticed that it is tough to find something for all the Mothers in their lives. There are older Mom’s shopping for their daughters that are now moms’ and Mother-in-laws that need to see some love. There are all kinds of Mom’s all over the place that need to know that you love them. It’s tough to find the perfect gift. (You know where this is headed right?)
We aren’t going to argue with anyone who recognizes that anAvenue Lou Sunglass Case is the BEST gift in the world for all kinds of Moms. They want their sunglasses protected by a large sunglasses case that is hard, durable and keeps those sunglasses from getting scratched, right?
Mom’s have all kinds of shades too. Big ones, Gucci ones, Maui ones, Wal-Mart ones, Cheapo’s from the street ones, all kindsaaa ones. Doesn’t it chap your hide like it does ours when the sun sun’s you love break or get scratched? No matter what kind of ones you have? I bet all your Mom’s feel the same way. You ought to get them one of these stylish little numbers. While you are at it, I bet you could use one too!
We had a comment come across Twitter a week or so ago that questioned whether or not a sunglasses case would be considered fashionable or part of mainstream fashion. At first we didn’t think anything of it and brushed it off. But then it stayed in our minds and we got a little bothered. Even with a little business selling sunglass cases there will always be naysayers.
When we stummbled upon this quote by Coco Chanel our mindset changed a little and we felt much more inspired about our company and what we believe in. “Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
Fashion is a unique subject, and fortunately for us and for everyone it is open to interpretation . Fashion is about creativity and a desire to have ideas come to life.
That keeps us excited about our sunglass case company! We hope that Avenue Lou Sunglass Cases can not only be practical, but also be something fun and inspiring at the same time.
Thank you Coco Chanel for reminding us that we all are fashionistas! (Which is a good thing!)
Spring is around the corner. This time of year all are anxious to try out their new outfits that just don’t feel right for January and February. But, as soon as March hits- Bam! tank tops, shorts, and all that swim wear.
We are anxious for you as well! We know that the sun comes out this time of year and that means you need your shades, and wait for it….that means you need aSUNGLASSES CASE!
We know you have a lot of decisions to make for your new looks this year, and that means $$. That’s why we want to make it easy for you when it comes to your new sunglasses case accessory. For a limited time our cases are only 16.00. That is a steal! So be quick and get that case before you go on that vacation you are planning.
As we grow as a company it is a new challenge to help people see that a sunglasses case can be extremely practical but also be something fun, unique and fashionable!
How many people do you think wear sunglasses? 1 out of 2 or 50% of people? Do more women wear them than men? After some diligent research by Avenue Lou we found that in the U.S. about 78% of Americans own a pair of sunglasses. Wow! That is a pretty big percentage. Of those that own a pair, it seems to be around 60% that wear them at least once a day.
Where it gets fuzzy is how many of those people use some form of protection for those shades. When you buy an expensive pair of sunglasses (over $125) about 90% of them come with some form of case. Even so, those are not very protective. The rest of the sunglasses sold do not come with a sunglasses case at all.
It’s a good thing we came around! Replacing your favorite shades is never fun. Especially when those ones fit just right. Keep them nice and safe with your very own signature design from Avenue Lou!
In many circles your accessories are considered the most important part of your wardrobe. So is a sunglass case considered an accessory and therefore part of your wardrobe? We would venture to say that yes, it is! And an important one too! The nice thing about an Avenue Lou sunglass case is that it’s a practical accessory which means that it will keep those expensive shades nice and safe. And it will look good doing its job too!
Once and a while we will recommend Sunglass or Eyewear Companies that we like. You should check outHogan, (It happens to be a coincidence that the founder of Avenue Lou is also a Hogan, but no relation.) Your sunglasses will look good in an Avenue Lou Case!
