Happy Go Texan Day! Yeehaw!

This week is just full of fun holidays! Dust off your cowboys boots, press your best pearl-snap shirt, and get into the spirit of all things Texas on this holiday that marks the start of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (the biggest livestock show and rodeo in the States). If you've ever been down to Houston for "Rodeo," you know that it's a pretty big event. And when I say big, what I really mean is there's lots and lots of walking. That's why you wear your comfy cowboys boots. That's also why you carry your trusty Lug bag. I prefer the Somersault. It's light. It's cute. And it holds your essentials: cash, phone, and tons of tickets for the amusement park rides.

How will you celebrate Go Texan Day? (I think I'll have some Texas BBQ for dinner. Yum.)

It's National Margarita Day! Cheers!

I just found out that Feb. 22 is National Margarita Day. (Wahoo!) I generally think of margaritas as good summer drinks. You know, a nice frozen concoction to beat the heat. But, down in Texas, margaritas are in season all year round! So take a break from winter, and hit up your nearest Mexican restaurant on this holiday to be celebrated. (It might help you take the edge off your Fat Tuesday imbibing.)

Forget Valentine's Day?

Make up for it with an "I'm Sorry I Forgot Valentine's Day" gift from Lug! And you know that if you forgot a gift yesterday, you've got to up the ante for the "I'm Sorry" gift. Luckily, I've created an easy-to-follow chart. First, what you were going to get. Then, what you should up the ante for now. Here goes:

Adorable Heart-Shaped Travel Charm —>>> Mini Handspring Wallet (Maybe even include a nice restaurant gift card inside for bonus points. After all, you need all the help you can get.)

If you were going to go for the petite Somersault Shoulder Pouch, up the ante for the bit-bigger Aerial Cross Body Bag. Unless, of course, she really wanted the smaller Somersault. Oh, gosh, it's so hard to choose! You should probably get them both, just be safe. ... Okay, maybe it's not so easy to make an easy-to-follow chart. Turns out, everything from Lug makes a great gift, whether it's an actual Valentine's Day gift or an "I'm Sorry I Forgot Valentine's Day" gift. Head here or to your local Lug retailer for your gift inspiration.

What Happens in Vegas ...

... gets put up on the Lug blog! At least when it involves an AWESOME Lug display at a beautiful new Walgreens right on the strip! Check it out!

Also, here's Jason with "The Great One." I think it's safe to say that Ami and Jason are having a pretty great time in Vegas. ... I wonder what bags they took on their trip.

Happy Groundhog Day!

It looks like we'll be having six more weeks of winter this year. Or, in the case of our team in Texas, maybe a bit of winter's chill will finally come our way! What I know for sure, though, is that Groundhog Day means that it's February, and February means that Valentine's Day is approaching, and with Valentine's Day approaching there is a need for presents of pink and purple and red! Luckily, we're Lug. We have lots of pink and purple and red products that make great Valentine's presents for the ones you love. Need examples? No problem!

How about the Mini Handspring Wallet (pictured top, pink)? It's an adorable little token of affection. You could even slip a restaurant gift card inside, and you've got dinner done too!

Want something a bit bigger? Try the Gondola Slouch Tote (pictured middle, purple). It's cute, smart, and stylish, just like your favorite gal.

Bigger still? Go for the Bus. Our new Airbus Weekender Bag (It should be available on our site soon, but your local retailer will have it first). But be forewarned: This bag begs to be used on a weekend excursion, so be prepared to plan an amazing holiday weekend away.

What Lug product would you like to see wrapped up for you on Valentine's Day?
