Facebook Photo Contest: Pets + Lug = Precious!

Got an adorable pet that just so happens to love Lug? We'd love to see it! Which is exactly why we're excited to host a Facebook photo contest, and there are three simple steps to winning.

1. Snap a super-cute/unique/funny/outrageous picture of your pet(s) with any Lug product(s), and write a brief statement about why your pet loves Lug.
2. E-mail said picture and statement to me at, where I will cull through the entries, choose finalists, and create a Facebook Photo Contest album.
3. Peruse the album, "like" your favorite photo, then get all your friends to "like" it too.

The photo with the most "likes" by the end of April will win a Somersault Shoulder Pouch—a perfect little pouch to take on, say, a nice walk with your dog (like Lola, here, pictured above). Or maybe your cute kitty will like to play with the bag's fully adjustable strap (like Leon the Professional, pictured below). I'm sure you can think of a good use for this versatile little pack.

Submit your entries by April 15. That's just two weeks, so get to snapping!

Spring Break Break-Down: Must-Haves for Your Trip (or My Trip)

Headed out of town for some Spring Break fun? I am, and I've got my Lug gear all picked out.

First, I'm taking my brand new Cartwheel. Sure, it's a great gym bag (I use it for my weekly yoga classes), but I've become seriously attached to this bag and all its smart features. It'll be my carry-on.

Second, I'm taking my Cargo Packing Squares, packing the two smaller ones to save bag space and stay organized and saving the large for dirty clothes.

Third, I'm taking my Undercover Bear. Agent Potts goes with me everywhere. (Unless it's in the laundry, in which case I take my Nap Sac.)

Fourth, fifth, and sixth are my Clearview Envelopes (for lip glosses), Canoe Brush Holder, and Clipper Flat Iron Case. Girl's got to look good on the go, you know?

I think that's it for this trip. I'm pretty Lugged out with six Lug products. What's the most Lug gear you've used on a single journey?

Spring Color Splash

It's the first official week of spring. Do you know the colors of the season? I do! Per the Pantone color trends report, the top 10 fashion colors are Honeysuckle (a toned-down hot pink), Russet (like the potato), Coral Rose (orange but with a bit of pink, like the inside of a papaya), Regatta (bold caribbean blue), Peapod (soft, sea foam green), Blue Curacao (somewhere right in between Regatta and Peapod), Beeswax (straight from the beehive), Lavender (a classic spring shade), Silver Peony (pretty—that's the best word for this soft pink), Silver Cloud (aptly named). I'm loving this season's colors! Blue Curacao is probably my favorite. Or maybe Honeysuckle. Or Silver Cloud. Okay, they're all favorites! Which is exactly why my collection of Lug gear spans the rainbow! What's your favorite color of the season?

Lug Takes a World Tour

We love hearing about your exciting world travels (even if it makes us a little—okay, a lot—jealous). And we love hearing about the Lug bags and accessories that helped you along the way, just like James here and his Sidekick. Here's what he wrote after his recent trip to the Far East:

"I wanted to tell you how much I LOVED my Frommer's bag on my trip! I almost wore it 24/7!"

James, we are so glad you loved your Sidekick Excursion Pack, and we love, love, LOVE the picture! We love it so much, in fact, that we want to plan a world tour. No, not for us (wah wah), but for our Lug bags! Wherever you use your Lug gear, whether that's at home or on a trip to Texas, Toronto, or Timbuktu, snap a pick of you with your gear in front of a local landmark, and send our way. Let's try to get Lug all across the globe!

New Product Goes Live!

After much anticipation, our BRAND NEW Spring 2011 products have finally been added to our web site! *cue the applause* And that's GREAT news! What's also great is that our brand new Spring 2011 products have been met with great enthusiasm. *wahoo!* What's not quite as great is that because of the enthusiasm and excitement, we have already sold out of some products and colors. *aww* But what's great again is that we're expecting our next shipment to arrive the first week of April! *yay!* What's even greater is that rather than waiting for our next shipment, you could check your local Lug retailer and see if they have the bag/wallet of your choosing in your favorite color! *double yay!* If they don't, you can just check back in early April. So, all in all, mostly great, eh?

And Finally, the Brand New Aerial Cross-Body Bag!

Rounding out the spring 2011 Lug line is the Aerial Cross-Body Bag. Larger than the Skipper or Somersault but still small enough to keep you light on your toes, the Aerial is what Goldilocks would call "just right!" It's got our signature hidden water bottle holder and a removable key fob, plus tons of pockets—big ones, little ones, zippered ones, soft-lined ones for electronics, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. It's versatile too: You can carry it cross-body like a messenger bag or shorten the adjustable strap and carry it over your shoulder. And what do you think of our new fabric accent? Pretty snazzy, eh? Available soon!

Introducing the Somersault Shoulder Pouch

Please welcome another of our BRAND NEW bags for spring 2011, the Somersault Shoulder Pouch! It's a versatile little bag that can be worn over the shoulder (messenger-style) or adjusted to fit around the waist. Either way you carry it, you can rest assured your goods are secure, whether it's your glasses that are stashed in a special soft-lined pocket or your cell phone that slips into the zippered pouch on the front flap. You'll also get good use out of the removable key fob. The Somersault is a bag that's as clever as it is cute!

Trade Show Fun: Booth Before and After

Had a great couple of days at the Camex Trade Show down in Houston, TX (home of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which is going on now!), and I wanted to show you the transformation of our booth from blah to Lug-a-licious! ... I love a good Lug display.
Live life in COLOR!


After: Tah Dah!
