From October, 2017

Ashleigh Downer, HEYDAY girl

What do you hope customers experience at HEYDAY/KNAPSACK? My goal is that every person who walks in our stores feels welcome – but not just in the Webster’s definition sense, but rather, “welcome” in the fullest capacity. I want the space we create to make someone stop in their tracks, take a deep breath, and slow down. Small businesses have a leg up when it comes to space – not physically, of course, but there is this opportunity we have to invite people, new and familiar, into a place we have cultivated intentionally to maximize their potential – whether that…

HEYDAY halloween, street style

Halloween is but a few days away, and we don’t know about you, but we’re full of anticipation and excitement. Yes, adults can have fun on this holiday too! From getting together with friends for celebrations, to helping our little ones don their adorable costumes, to putting together a fun look for ourselves, to, of course, the candy, there’s nothing about this spooky holiday that we don’t love.   Here at HEYDAY, we believe every day provides us with a reason to celebrate, so when a holiday approaches, we are swift to put together our favorite looks. And with all…

HEYDAY girl, Claire Whitworth-Folsom

What made you want to work at HEYDAY/KNAPSACK? I really loved being a shopper at HEYDAY/KNAPSACK and had to work here. Between the amazing atmosphere and the wonderful product it was a must for me. What has been your impression thus far? So far it has been a great environment to work in. I work with a group of very creative woman and really love the sense of community with the customers. Describe your style sense in a few words. My style is classic. I love wearing neutrals and stripes and pieces I can wear for years and years to…

Velvet Dreams, Street Style

We’re all about the details here at HEYDAY. From all things ruffles + frills to a cold shoulder top, there’s nothing better than a clothing item that makes you feel like a million bucks. And that includes… VELVET! That’s right. We don’t know about you, but we’re lost in velvet dreams…   Nothing ushers in the holiday spirit quite like seeing velvet hit the shelves. At least that’s how we’ve been feeling at HEYDAY recently. Our new dreamy velvet items include a darling yellow pleated dress perfect for any day around town or for a special event; a pair of…

HEYDAY girl, Cne’ McCrum

What do you hope customers feel when they walk into HEYDAY? I hope anybody that even knows about HEYDAY feels that it is a welcoming environment for EVERY walk of life. We genuinely care about the experience of finding that outfit that makes her feel like a million bucks, and we want that person to feel like she is in a zone of comfort to express herself. How long have you been working in retail and what made you want to work at HEYDAY? I have been in retail for almost 5 years now, and I love every bit of…

Street Style, Ruffles

Our HEYDAY theme last week was all things celebration! In our last blog post, we discussed the importance of celebrating the little things in life. {If you haven’t read last week’s edition yet, be sure to head on over there now!} This week’s theme piggybacks right off of last week’s celebratory spirit. This week we’re all about RUFFLES + FRILLS! Yes, you read that right, and we are jumping up and down for joy with you! When the HEYDAY team went to Las Vegas on a buying trip to MAGIC in February, one of the prominent styles we noticed was…

Jackie Nunnally, HEYDAY girl

What do you hope all customers feel and experience when they walk into HEYDAY? I hope customers feel like they’re walking into their own closet with a personal stylist every time they come into HEYDAY! I hope they feel like they are going in to visit with some of their favorite people in Fort Collins, and just happen to bond over clothes. Kind of like a coffee shop! We bond with people over things we have in common, it brings us together, and I hope that’s what HEYDAY can do, create a community and bring people together. I hope people…

Celebration, Street Style

October is finally here, and we don’t know about you, but we are celebrating cooler temperatures and a little bit of rain. With the holiday season approaching (it’ll be here before we even know it!) you may already be thinking about Thanksgiving festivities, Christmas parties, and of course…New Year’s Eve! While we are most definitely looking forward to the upcoming holiday festivities, we’ve recently been asking ourselves: How can we celebrate the now? How can we cultivate a life of celebration? There is no better time to celebrate than right now. We believe it wholeheartedly! There is a lot going…
