fbpx Can you believe that March has already arrived? It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in the new year. By now we’re getting quite sick of the cold weather and we’re ready for spring to come! Be sure you’re starting to get rid of your old (and cold!) inventory to make room for your spring collections. Click here to find some tips for getting rid of your winter collections. Let’s talk about all of the different events that you can celebrate in your store this month:

St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is on Thursday, March 17th and is the perfect opportunity to get customers in your store to celebrate the luck o’ the Irish! Decorate your store with lots of green, four leaf clovers, leprechauns, rainbows, and pots of gold! Some fun ideas to get people in your store are to have fun runs, serve green beer, discount all of your green apparel, or hide a leprechaun somewhere in your store for customers to find and win a prize! Don’t forget to play traditional Irish music in your store.

First Day of Spring

The first day of spring is on Sunday, March 20th. There is no better way to celebrate the new season than to get outside and appreciate the sunshine! Host a picnic or invite your local community to a potluck near your storefront. If you’re still looking to get rid of some of your winter inventory, you could have a “spring cleaning” sale in your store to encourage your customers to come and take a look of your deals.

Easter Weekend

Although your store might be closed or you might have a decrease in traffic on Easter Sunday (March 27), you could use the week leading up to it to celebrate the holiday. You can find lots of fun Easter decorations and everyone loves Easter egg hunts! Happy March!
