T9 Vocabulary Lesson: Regulator and Woolicious

We love product reviews as much as you do. And we thought it’s high time to take the conversations had over mixing our oatmeal here in the kitchen, zooming around on scooters, and waiting for the next workout and put them down on “paper” for you. Rebecca, our Director of Retail, is always waiting for next years Regulator, and Alice, of Alice’s Picks, is lovin’ the Woolicious this year. Here’s their take.

Take it, or leave it ūüėČ

Title Nine From Behind the Lens

Almost as a perfect example of how we do things around here, when photographer Laura Barisonzi learned about Title Nine she reached out to us interested in working together, and next thing you know she was on a plane headed west. When it’s good, it’s good and we won’t waste any time seizing an opportunity. Who says we don’t like the East Coast? As T9ers you already know that the shots turned out fabulous and we couldn’t be more excited to have a new, vivacious and outgoing gal on our team. Glad to have you on board, Laura!

All the new Fall product has arrived in our Customer Service department and with the girls running around trying on every piece of it they can, we thought it’s high time we pass on some of their favorites and the feedback. Enjoy!

 

Jackie on the Hybrid Jacket

“I love HYBRID ANYTHINGGGG! So I love the¬†Hybrid Jacket! The material so soft yet so versatile and tough! It‚Äôs something you put on quickly and can wear it anywhere! It‚Äôs warm without being too warm, and I love the colors it comes in! I own the¬†Hybrid Pullover, and hopefully will be a proud owner of a¬†Hybrid Jacket¬†soon!”

Celebrating Title IX’s Birthday with Chicago Sky

The girls in their courtside seats on the sidelines.

We love it when our stores have the opportunity to get out into the community and share some Title Nine feel-good vibes. This last week our girls from the Title Nine Evanston and Lincoln Park stores were able to make some dreams come true by sponsoring 81 athletes from Girls on the Run, Girls Rock and Girls in the Game to attend a Chicago Sky WNBA game. Between giving away goodie bags and seeing Olympic Gold Medalists, they made one heck of a night out of it!

Title IX shirts by Chicago Sky

Before the game the girls were able to watch the Chicago Sky team warm up which also meant they got sneak peeks of Olympic Gold Medalists up-close and personal! Too cool for them to see their idols so close! And too cool for our girls to be there and share it with them! The team also happened to be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Title IX that night and  were giving away free t-shirts and sporting warm-up jerseys in honor of the legislative bill. It was just meant to be for the crew to be there!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a great Title Nine event if we didn’t bring along some goodies to give away to our biggest fans! So the stores brought plenty of T9 goodies and hosted a raffle to give away the surprises in the second half. Two lucky ladies went away with T9 Tee’s, Smartwool Socks, and water bottles while the final Grand Prize winner scored a $250 gift card!

Happy Winner!

Loving her new bag of goodies!

It was so wonderful to see so many Mom’s and daughters out for the game, excited to be there and having a little bit of fun. Being able to provide¬†Girls on the Run, Girls Rock and Girls in the Game with a great experience was definitely rewarding because they are three organizations that speak directly to something we hold very highly around around here – getting at-risk girls off the sidelines and onto the field. Or in Girls Rock’s case, behind a microphone! Many thanks and high-fives to those who are working to keep those organizations a success.
