Holiday Shops Event

The air is turning colder and crisper, but that doesn’t mean Green 3 is slowing down anytime soon. In fact, this is our busiest time of the year! We had a fantastic show at Holy Hill on September 19, and now we have a couple more direct to consumer retail shows to attend leading up to the holidays. We’ve mentioned our events before in another blog, but today we’ll be focusing on what you can expect at our Holiday Shops Event at the University School of Milwaukee!

Our next big show is the Holiday Shops at the USM on October 29-31. Green 3 is busy deciding what to bring that you will absolutely love, whether it’s for yourself or an early start to your holiday shopping.

Similar to the show at Holy Hill, we will be bringing a lot of new, unique and handmade items to share with you. The best part of these hand made items is that many are unique, one of a kind, so you’ll never see another one like it. Don’t worry though- we will also be bringing inline Green 3 products, like our skirts, tees, throws and more.

One of our biggest feature items that we cannot wait to share with you is our blanket wraps. These wraps are made from high end up cycled woven fabric that we purchased from a well known women’s company that recently closed. Sandy works with the green 3 sewing team to come up with a few items from the leftover fabrics that are colorful and amazing. From here, you will see one of our favorites, the wool poncho that has a floral pattern, perfect for Fall. It’s light enough to wear in the office, but also warm enough to wear outside when it gets breezy. The fabric on the left is also a reclaimed wool wrap, and is accompanied with a tie or scarf.

Another big part of our Holiday Shops show is that we will be bringing more skirts to you. That’s right- different inline styles as well as unique skirts that we’ve made out of reclaimed wool. We can’t forget about the ever-popular Christmas Sweater Skirt, made from recycled Christmas sweaters and a comfortable waist band that allows for stretch. Also being featured at the show will be our cream holiday skirt that features a beautiful natural textured cotton with a black trim.

Along with our Holiday favorites, Green 3 will be proudly showing more one-of-a-kind skirts made from reclaimed wool. Just like our ponchos and blanket wraps, we are taking the fabric from the ends of the rolls and making amazing unique items and nothing goes to waste. The skirts are perfect not only for Summer and Fall, but also for Winter, especially with the inner linings and outer wool fabrics. Don’t forget to pair a skirt with one of Green 3’s tees, which you will be able to find at the show. We can’t wait to show you our Santa, Snowflake and Retro Owl tees!

Even though we can’t help but love our wraps, ponchos and skirts, we won’t forget about the rest of Green 3’s products! Not only will you get to shop for remarkable clothing, but you will also get your hands on some amazing accessories! We are pleased to be bringing to you our handwarmer wall! That’s right, a whole wall dedicated to our delightful recycled cotton handwarmers. We will also be showing you some reclaimed, recycled cashmere handwarmers. Sorry we’ve been keeping them to ourselves this whole time! Don’t forget about our recycled cotton scarves! Mix and match with a variety of different options that range from quirky to fun.

From there, you can find our Dog Sweater/Human Scarf set that you cannot go without. Not only does your beloved pet stay warm in the cooler Winter times, but you, as their human, will match and stay warm, too. The list is never-ending because you can also find a huge assortment of bags from Green 3.

Depending on how long you have known Green 3, you may or may not know about our different brands. One of them is called Home Green Home. This includes a section of green, organic, home good things (just like it sounds!) So when you visit us at our booth, you can get a head start on shopping some new Circa-Home candles, body wash and body lotion. We will even set up testers for the lotion so you can try before you buy. We currently carry Circa-Home in scents like Amberwood, Gingerwood and Marsh Rosemary. For the Holidays, Sandy and the Green 3 team are bringing in some wonderful Holiday scents that will surely accent any Holiday get-together you have. We will also be featuring some throw blankets that make great gifts for adults and kids. These are made from recycled cotton knits and come in a vast collection of colors and designs. We will be carrying more home goods, like Christmas stockings, Christmas tree skirts, towels, and more.

The Men’s Fall 2015 Line

Green 3 not only accounts for music and pop culture for the inspiration behind the collections, but we are also inspired by lifestyles. With our Fall 2015 men’s line, we went back in time to post-World War II, or around the 1950s.

Butcher Cuts | Green 3

Butcher Cuts | Green 3

Green 3 went back to the ’50s because of the way the time period shaped America. The aftermath of the war built America to what it is today- building the American Dream and making a life for yourself. At the time, men were living simpler lives, which Green 3 loves.

For example, the Butcher Cuts tee to the right was inspired by the pop-ups of small businesses, including butcher shops. Instead of people shopping big corporate stores, nowadays they are returning to shopping small.

Looking at today, men have started to revert away from technology and into building an easier lifestyle. People are camping more, spending more quality time away from technology and actually taking time to build a life. Literally, build!

The retro-wash of all of the shirts this season not only give it a sense of relaxation and comfort, but also fits into the 1950s style. Green 3’s tees work perfectly with a pair of faded blue jeans, which encompasses the full American lifestyle.

 

 

All of our men’s shirts are made from 100% organic cotton with a relaxed fit. Not only are they for men, but many women, even Sandy Martin, wears a men’s tee on comfortable days. They are designed and printed in the USA, and made with environmentally-friendly dyes.

Check out the full 2015 line below! You can head over to our website to get your tees today, whether it’s for yourself, a friend or for the holidays!

The Story of a Green 3 Hat

Innovative and out-of-the-ordinary are just a few words to describe Green 3’s inspiration behind the garments, accessories and items we have. Not only are we trying to create items that are individual and one-of-a-kind, but also items that are useful and functional. That’s exactly what our hats are.

What started as a fun idea for Green 3 founder Sandy Martin, actually turned into something quite popular! Originally, Sandy made the Green 3 hats square to be funny.

Yep. Funny!

When Green 3 started the hat project, they stuck with animals. Sandy worked with the in-house designer to work out a hat that kept the ears of the animals in the corners without actually sewing ears on the hats. When the hat rests loosely on your noggin, it keeps the ear part pointy.

See why they’re square now?

Not only that, but the longer design of the hats keep them 100% functional! The comfortable fit will wrap around your head, and when your ears are cold, pull down the fabric. You will still keep the peculiar shape of the hats while staying warm.

Sandy also thought about the products as a conversation starter. She recently traveled out of state, and someone approached her about her raccoon handwarmers. The person thought they were unique and different, which Green 3 takes pride of. Sandy knows that these square hats will be conversation starters and may even help you meet some new people.

Just like other knits from Green 3, our hats are designed in the heart of the Fox Valley in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. From there, they are sewn in upstate New York with 75% pre-consumer recycled cotton. They are warm, soft, flexible and fun, and of course made with the environment at heart. They are then sent to Oshkosh for some last touches on the sewing, and are then sent out to the world!

Sold on the square design of these compelling hats? Get yours today by clicking here! We have hats in all sorts of animal designs, like the Fox Hat seen above as well as a Wolf Hat, Raccoon Hat, Skunk Hat and even a Sock Monkey hat. Dare to be different!

How many of us wake up every morning, hop in the shower and are about to get dressed when we realize that we don’t even know what we want to wear today.

Let Green 3 help you complete your perfect fall look with some pieces from our Fall line!
