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

- THE TENTS @ PROJECT, PROJECT MVMNT
- MAGIC MEN’S
- POOL TRADESHOW

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.

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.

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!
As many of you have already noticed, neon is coming back in a BIG way. At first, you may have tried to ignore it with flashbacks of 80’s, Aqua Net cemented bangs and wearing your stirrup pants, Day-Glo t-shirts with your triple lace up L.A Gears (it’s okay, you weren’t alone). Take a deep breathe, bright is BACK and we encourage you to HAVE FUN with it.

Fox is a globally renowned brand that offers amazing quality and performance merchandise. A family owned business since its humble beginnings, Fox Racing has quickly risen to the top of the industry.
Moto-X Fox was launched by founder Geoff Fox as a small distribution business for European motocross bikes in Northern California in 1974. Two years later, the company expanded and began to manufacture high-performance suspension and engine components for racers.
In 1977, Team Moto-X Fox was created. They met with success early on, with their riders taking the top five in their first year. Beyond that, Team Moto-X Fox impressed American motocross fans in a way that was not initially intended. Wearing bright red, yellow, and orange race suits that were hand-made by Fox, they became an instant hit; enthusiasts and fans feverishly contacted Moto-X Fox for availability.
Fox Racing has become the world’s leading motocross apparel brand, going on to sponsor, support, and work with some of the best motocross riders in the world. Since its inception, Fox Racing has been committed to developing the finest sports gear, apparel, accessories, footwear, and sunglasses with the racer in mind. Dominating the motocross scene, MX riders now look to Fox for innovative designs.
Fox Racing has become an international leader in the action sports and sportswear industry, going far beyond its initial focus of motocross, but branching out to BMX, MTB, skateboarding, surfing, and wakeboarding.
With professional athletes endorsing the Fox Racing head logo, Fox Racing has become a household name and will continue to be a staple for the racing and action sports industry. By embracing its family owned values and grassroots tradition, Fox Racing transcends the industry and will continue to create products with the highest quality, performance, and design.

If there was one predominant trend saturating the runway during Fashion Week in New York, it had to be NEON. Vibrant colors in general are huge for Spring 2012, but the hues most designers fell in love with were bright and bold NEON’S. Although neon is often used as an accent color, this season you will find neon tops, neon dresses, neon skirts, neon shoes, and neon accessories.
So say hello to the 80’s because they are officially back! Okay, so you haven’t sported neon in over 20 years? Worried about looking as though you stepped out of a Boy George video? All you need to do is work these colors in your outfits properly, so it looks interesting and not too flamboyant. We have you covered!
Neon Fashion Tip #1: Start Off Small
If you are a little uneasy as to how to work these bright colors in your closet, why not start off small? Work a bright pink neon tank into your casual Friday look, or wear neon colored jewelry to your trustworthy black attire. For example, wearing a sexy little black dress tonight? Skip the basic black pumps and work in neon blue pumps. Wearing neon colored accessories will add a hint of color and personality to any outfit. For even a smaller start, paint on some summer color on your nails instead of the normal pales and pastels.
Neon Fashion Tip #2: Shy Away From Accessories
When you are wearing a brightly colored fluorescent top, it is typically protocol to keep the accessories minimal. Bright clothing with overly bright accessories will look too chaotic. Another good tip is to avoid matching the same accessory color with the same color in your outfit. Stay away from neon orange jewelry, shoes or purses when you’re already wearing a neon orange dress. Simple!
Neon Fashion Tip #3: Bring in the Neutral Colors
When wearing a bright colored shirt or a bright colored skirt, it is best to try to pair the item with a neutral color. Don’t try to work a neon top with a neon bottom. Instead wear neon bottoms with a white blouse. Black also looks super fab with vibrant hues. When you’re wearing a neon pink dress, work in your favorite black pumps or sandals instead of wearing pink on your tootsies. The neutral colors will help balance out your look.
Depending on your body shape, neon can be less attention grabbing on either the bottom or the top. Experts recommend trying out several different styles and colors before deciding on what works best on you!
Remember: Don’t be afraid of color embrace it! Color can be very flirty and fun, so start shopping! There are many ways to work neon into your closet; check out a Glik’s store nearest you or www.gliks.com for the hottest new styles of neon.
