Las Vegas is all about the bright lights, over-the-top entertainment, nightlife and endless nights of gambling… but for us, Las Vegas is all about MAGIC MARKET WEEK.
MAGIC MARKET WEEK is where the global players in the contemporary fashion and apparel sourcing scene gather twice a year in Las Vegas. The largest, most influential network of buyers, brands, media, and decision makers gather at several merchandised show areas:
- FN PLATFORM
- WSA @ MAGIC
- THE TENTS @ PROJECT, PROJECT MVMNT
- MAGIC MEN’S
- POOL TRADESHOW
- SOURCING @ MAGIC
Those who attend MAGIC MARKET WEEK also have access to seminars, trends, brands, industry networking, and commerce. It’s the who’s who in trends and the ‘where we want to be’ for many major players.
Glik’s buying team attends MAGIC MARKET WEEK twice a year to find the freshest trends to bring back to the Midwest.
Here is a glance of what happened while at MAGIC MARKET WEEK:

It’s Festival season! Concerts, parties, fun times with friends, what’s not to love? People-watching is always a fun activity, but style watching during these shindigs is the best. The festival trend has been huge this spring, and not just for festivals. The trend includes crop tops, lace, layers, booties, cut-offs, and unique pieces with vintage vibes. We have picked out some of our favorite festival looks to help you pack for the next festival near you.
There’s a huge festival coming up in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, which is where one of our Glik’s stores is located.

August 1st-3rd some of the biggest names in country music will be coming to Detroit Lakes to perform including Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, Keith Urban, Darius Rucker, Kenny Rogers, and Kellie Pickler. Check out the full line up here. So many famous faces in one place! So the big question is…what will you wear?!

For the past 3 years Glik’s has celebrated TOMS One Day Without Shoes under the St. Louis, Missouri Arch. The whole Home Office shed their shoes and walked the Arch grounds barefoot. One Day Without Shoes is a special day that Glik’s helps TOMS raise awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child’s life. This day is for spreading the ONE FOR ONE message!
We set up outdoor activities, played games, made crafts, shared IMO’s pizza, and passed out goody bags to the public. If you don’t already know, the Midwest weather is fickle and can never decide what climate to relax in. The first two years were bright and sunny, the public was out in the masses enjoying the warmth. Our feet were lucky. Yes, we were barefoot, but we still had the luxury of warmth and soft soil.
Rain. Cold rain. Lots of it.
But we were not alone. Some of our Northern locations had snow.
No complaints, though! Despite the wet and cold, we had fun in our bare feet! Here are a few of our favorite photos from TOMS One Day Without Shoes 2013…
The day was summed up best by our lovely Area Manager, Susan Juenger…
Susan went barefoot all day too!!!
Last year on April 10th the Glik’s home office staff gathered under the Arch with our friends/family to raise awareness and celebrate the TOMS shoes campaign One Day Without Shoes. We invited the public to join in on our games, eat yummy pizza from IMO’s, and put their best foot forward (literally) by creating a bit of art.
Our afternoon was sunny and bright, but don’t let that fool you… It was still very cold and windy outside. The ground felt cold and hard beneath our feet, and the grass was stiff from winter’s harsh treatment. It did not contour to each step we took, as it would have in the warmer spring or summer seasons. By the end of the day our feet ached from the ground debris and were numb due to the elements. This was the most important lesson behind ODWS. We were able to learn what it felt like, for several hours, to not have shoes to protect our feet.
Personally, I spent the whole day without shoes. This included walking in rock strewn parking lots, stubbing my toes on various rocks, twigs, steps, and desk legs. Worst of all, I had to walk barefoot into a public restroom because I could no longer hold myself, which was the most disgusting thing EVER. I felt gross, embarrassed, (secretly) whiney, and ashamed for having those– so self-absorbed– complaints. Having shoes is actually a luxury, and I have a closet full of them, but most don’t even serve an actual function.
Oh, and the stares…
People actually gawked, which made me feel slightly overexposed. Some people approached me and asked why I was barefoot, which was nice. It felt really good to be able to share with others the reason why I was without my shoes. This is the goal behind TOMS One Day Without Shoes movement.
One Day Without Shoes has helped to raise awareness for the millions of people, throughout the world, who don’t own shoes. It shows those who participate how it feels to go a day without them, and what we can do to help those in need!
We are excited to invite you to please participate this year with us on Tuesday, April 16th 2013 for TOMS shoes One Day Without Shoes event!
