Fall into Great Fashion!

All the signs are there, seeing big yellow school buses on the roads, pools preparing to close, and every once in a while a breeze of cool air comes our way. We all have to admit it; fall is on its way. Living on the east coast, we show a sign of each season, and as much as I love summer, by the time fall rolls around I am ready to welcome it. It is a nice change to wear long sleeve tee's and feel comfortable in pants. The temperature is still warm enough to wear sandals and flip flops, but enough of an evening breeze that you can comfortably wear a light jacket. You also can't help but be interesed in the new clothes that come out for fall, especially if you are the type of person who loves to see new styles and trends!

As we prepare for another change in season, remember, there is a bright-side to the end of summer, you get to go shopping!

We think we have a pretty good selection to start you off with, trust us, because Joe knows shoes.

Ahhh, the Sweet Life!

Is it just me or is the weather this year absolutley crazy?! A record number of blizzards this winter, and to top it off a blazing hot summer to say the least! However, we all still have to remember that we are in the middle of one of the best seasons (vastly decided by age, kids love it- parents often dread it) of the year. The carefree days of summer, people seem to be in better moods, due to the great energy we get from the sun, or is it the wonderful creative of Air Conditioning? I know everyone around the country is sizzling with temperatures ranging from 85-95+ degrees but remember to enjoy the days of summer.

When in the sun, don't forget!
+ Reapply sunscreen every two hours to prevent from burning
+ Stay hydrated with water or sports drinks
+ Find an area that has some shade, so you can escape the heat

Want to beat the heat?
+ Got to a matinee movie
+ Take your beach chair to the waters edge and sit with your feet in the water
+ Have a water balloon fight

What are your tips and tricks to keeping cool this summer?

Ulla's Fall Preview

You may have noticed our newest catalog being delivered to you this week. We are proud to introduce our Fall Preview! I know what you may be thinking, "Fall?!? Summer just started!" Yes, this is true, however, we have been careful to include items that can be worn straight through summer into fall. Take our Crochet Empire Dress, #04237 for example, this is the perfect look for both summer and fall. Pair cute sandals with this dress for those cool summer nights, you will stay comfortable with loose 3/4 length sleeves and A-line fit. By the time fall rolls around you can add leggings and flats and continue wearing this fantasic dress in style!

Celebrate, With Savings!

Once Memorial Day rolls around we see an increase in outdoor events, cookouts and parties. For some this holiday marks the beginning of summer, and days of leisure. If you haven't already, you may want to break out the shorts and tank tops, and make some fresh lemonade. When you have had your fill of being outside enjoying nice weather (we hope!) and gatherings with friends and family, remember you can snag some great Ulla items without even leaving the comfort of your own home!

We will be available to take calls this coming holiday weekend everyday from 8am-12am EST and of course, you can shop at any time you would like online! We look forward to hearing from you.

Have a great Memorial Day.

Let the Good Times Roll!

I am sure it is no shock that most of us feel better when we are in the company of friends and family. Often times all it takes to make your day a little better is to be surrounded by people you care about.

Enjoy the spring weather that is upon us and take this time to spend time with your friends and family. Go for a walk in the park, go on a shopping spree with friends, or just sit and relax! It may just be a little thing that can make a big difference.

Heat Wave!

Watch Out! Maryland (and the rest of the eastern shore) is preparing for a heat wave this weekend. Break out the swimsuits, frozen drinks and reserve your spot on the beach! Maybe wishful (and a little extreme) thinking but I can't help but be excited about the upcoming 80 degree temperatures we will be experiencing in the coming days. With lingering thoughts of the double blizzard that hit us a mere 2 months ago this warm weather could not have come at a better time. Hopefully this beautiful weather will finally get rid of all my memories of snow. Imagine this, for the first time in a few years us ladies will be able to wear much needed spring colored dresses, and open toed shoes for Easter and not freeze!

Enjoy this coming weekend's weather, and for many the extended Easter Holiday from all of us at Ulla Popken!

It's all in the Signs!

Thinking of myself as having a goodwill personality and carefree nature i have found myself using the phrase "it's a sign" more and more. To some it's a hopeful way of thinking everything will work out for them, or that the stars are somehow aligning to perfectly meet with ones needs. To others it is a way of looking on the bright side of life. After all, you will notice the more often you have a positive outlook the better you will feel. You will also notice more and more people are naturally attracted to a positive attitude!

I am by no means a motivations speaker, but I encourage you all to acknowledge the many 'signs' life throws our way!

Keep Your Sanity in the Winter!

If you are living on the East Coast you know we have had a hard hit of winter weather this past weekend, and we are sure to get more in the coming days. I can remember being a little kid and getting so excited when it snowed, the sleigh riding and snowball fights were far more exciting than a typical day. Now that I have grown up I only enjoy it when there are a few inches; enough to blanket the ground, and little enough to quickly clear the streets! If you feel like this is too much of a winter wonderland for comfort remember there are plenty of ways to stay entertained while staying at home.

Cuddle up with a good book, play a game you haven't played in years, shop the internet, make a home-made dinner from scratch, or write in a journal. Take this time to slow down your busy, hectic life and do something YOU enjoy.

What helps get you out of the winter blues?

We certainly have, which is why we are pleased to bring back a customer favorite. The Goddess Dress #91282, available in both black and chocolate. (shown in chocolate)

Everyone needs a special occasion dress that will compliment your style. So try our Goddess Dress, with a perfectly graceful silhouette which flatters any body shape, this is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
