Lug Makes The Nate Show with Nate Berkus

We LOVE Nate Berkus, and he showed Lug some love on his show! Our bags were featured on The Nate Show this week during a segment about holiday travel. Here's what Nate's guest, travel expert Kendra Thornton, had to say about the Lug Shuttle Bus.

Lightweight bags are the key. The lighter the actual bag that you are going to carry on, the easier it will be for you to use the bag. Don't go above 5 pounds with a duffel bag style carry on, and with a wheeled suitcase, keep it under 12 pounds. If you're in the market for a new lightweight carry-on travel bag, check out the Lug Round-Trip Shuttle Bus Weekend Bag (pictured above). It's cute, functional, easy to carry, and the multiple compartments will help keep you organized.

Happy audience members walked away with a Lug bag and some accessories. We are so glad to have been a part of the show!

Ready for the Biggest Travel Day of the Year?

The day before Thanksgiving is the biggest travel day of the year. Are you ready? I am, and here's why. I've got my Tuk Tuk Carryall packed with all my carry-on items: computer, book, snacks, Nap-Sac. I've got my checked bag belted and tagged, and I've even used a little Clearview Envelope to store lip gloss and other liquids that will have to go through security. And for all the Black Friday sales, I'm packing my Eco Shopper. I'm all Lugged out and ready go. Hope you are too! Happy travels and an even happier Thanksgiving to you!

One Week To Go!

You may think I'm talking about Thanksgiving, which, of course, is exactly one week from today. But I'm not. No, I'm talking about the deadline to enter this month's contest for LUG FAN OF THE MONTH, which is also exactly one week from today. Each and every month, Lug scours submissions and chooses one lucky Lug fan, who wins all kinds of Lug loot. And each and every month, the deadline to enter is the 25th. Christine Rivard was our September fan, and our October fan will be revealed later this month. Will you be our November fan? ... Not if you don't enter! Luckily, it's easy. Just go here, tell us why you're a big Lug Nut, and include a pic or two.

See. I told you it was easy.

Thanksgiving Travel Tips ... Be Stress Free!

Holiday travel can be stressful. Okay, sure, that could have probably gone unsaid. I mean, with tens of millions planning to hit the road next week for Thanksgiving, there's bound to be plenty of stress to go around. But I've always believed that one key to being stress free is preparation. (See that woman in the picture over there to the left? She prepared.) So, I've scoured the web to find some sites with varied travel tips: First, here are some air travel tips. And here's a whole site dedicated to traveling with kids. Here are some driving tips. And for good measure, here are some tips for those who are stressed just from the thought of holiday travel and have convinced loved ones to travel to them.
Of course, the biggest preparation tip of all is to carry smart bags and travel accessories. Pack a Puddle Jumper for an overnight trip or opt for a Shuttle Bus for the weekend. Or there's always the Tuk Tuk or the Taxi or the Moped or ... Well. You get the picture. There's a Lug bag for every possible pilgrimage, plus accessories (like a Nap Sac or a Flatbed or a Tango ...) to ease any travel stresses.
So, be prepared, and you can be just like the woman in the picture. Or at least a little more carefree.

Thank You, Veterans

The month of November is truly a month of giving thanks—not only for friends, family, and the ridiculous portions of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie to come (yum), but also, as today reminds us, November 11 is the special day of remembrance to give thanks for our Veterans and "honor their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good." (I picked up that last part right here.) So, go out there and hug a veteran. Or throw up a high-five. Or maybe just a simple smile and "Thanks" will do.

Lug Sponsors the Teddy Bear Affair

Could there be a cuter children's charity event name than the Teddy Bear Affair? Answer: No. But more than a cute name, this black-tie gala benefits the Children's Aid Foundation, an organization that "works to provide funding for prevention, enrichment, and education programs" for at-risk children and youth. Lug is proud to be the main sponsor of the VIP section for this Nov. 6 event.

Pictured: Our Undercover Bears. Just as cute as teddy bears and arguably more cuddly.
