What’s New: SALE on Summer Jewelry & Fashion Accessories

scout bagSCOUT Bags, Totes, Wallets and Coolers

25% off though August 6, 2014

Bright, fun, functional… it’s summer in a bag!

It’s best to start from the beginning when telling the story of the SCOUT brand. Back in the early 2000’s, when co-founder and creative director Deb Johns was on a trip for an international color and trend board, a chic plaid carryall caught her eye in the window of the Helmut Lang store in Milan. Deb instantly recalled how well she had sold a similar looking bag at a much more affordable price during a recent running of her pop-up shop, Fifi. The first SCOUT bag was made from Deb’s realization that women and families around the world wanted a tote bag that perfectly blended fashion and function; and, if it came at a better price than its high-fashion counterpart, the bag would likely sell out.

Get these while their hot: SCOUT was just featured been featured on Oprah’s “O List” this year. This is a new line for us with under-retail pricing, so getting them on sale is a real treat!

holiday treeTips for the wear and care of your holiday tree

A prime location is chosen. Furniture gets rearranged. Outlets and extension cords get sussed out.  It’s that time of year again: time for the Christmas tree!

Despite being stuffed with turkey, Thanksgiving weekend has actually become the most common time to put up the tree. But this weekend is really prime time: the selection is great, and there’s not too much time between now and the 25th for it dry up into a tree meant for Charlie Brown.

Help your community: Buy a tree at Snow’s! $5 from every purchase goes to benefit Nauset Regional Middle School programs.

If you’re ready to get out and get trimming, Snow’s has just received a large inventory of gorgeous, grown-in-the-USA evergreens from North Carolina. A member of our friendly staff will give your tree a fresh cut and make sure it securely tied to your vehicle before you go home. And to help you keep your tree looking great all season long, here are a few tips from our Garden Center:

1. Take the Fresh Test

Of course you never have to worry about this at Snow’s, but you must start with a fresh tree if you hope to keep it fresh at home.  Stay away from trees with a lot of browning needles — or needles that fall off the branches easily. These trees are past their prime.

2. Location, Location, Location.

Like us, trees need a special sense of place, too. Safety first: you should keep the tree away from open flames or heat sources, which may dry it out prematurely. Other than that, a room corner is nice — out of the direct path of traffic and less likely to get bumped. If your ideal spot is in front of a picture window, make sure to pull the shades during the day to keep the tree out of direct sunlight.

watering the tree

Heighten Your Hydration!
In addition to lots of water, add Prolong® preservative to keep your tree greener, fresher and safer throughout the season.

3. Wise Watering

The most important part of keeping a live Christmas tree healthy is making sure it gets enough water from the start. The first day your tree spends in its new home (yours!) it will downright guzzle: expect it to absorb up to a full gallon of water in 24 hours. It’s imperative that the water doesn’t dry up during this period. If it does – and it only takes once – the base of the trunk will develop a natural seal that prevents it from drinking in more water. After the initial watering, you should check the water level twice a day for the first week, then daily from then on.

 

And when it’s all over, remember to keep your evergreen “green.”

Once your tree has fulfilled its job as holiday spirit maker inside your home, make sure to dispose of it in an environmentally-friendly fashion. Fortunately, most transfer stations on Cape Cod accept Christmas trees to be ground up for compost.

Finally, if all this fresh tree talk is irrelevant because your family puts up an artificial tree, you may be surprised to learn that “fake” can actually be considered “green” as well. There’s a lot of debate on this subject, but since an artificial tree represents a live tree that isn’t cut down, it can be an eco-friendly option if it’s used year after year.  Snow’s has an assortment of artificial trees (with lights!) from 2’ to 7’ tall, in a variety of shapes to compliment your array of holiday ornaments.

Happy trimming!
