TOMS is famous for making those shoes where if you buy one, you’re also giving a pair of shoes to a child in need and established that you could run a business based on the one-for-one philosophy . A great idea and something that has become a little bit of a status symbol among those who know. This year TOMS has branched out into other items including Sunglasses.
Downtown Disney Anaheim’s Apricot Lane just received their first order of glasses and the response has been amazing! With every purchase of TOMS sunglasses, TOMS will help give sight to a person in need-through medical treatment, prescription eyeglasses or sight saving surgery. One for One.
TOMS are featured in store in a variety of styles, colors and shapes starting at $119.00. Great prices, high fashion looks and statement pieces are enough to make anyone want to run and tell their friends but now there are more messages to tell thanks to Apricot Lane.
“We pride ourselves in finding really unique pieces that also have a message behind them. Giving the meaning of a t shirt, a bracelet or a brand and what it stands for to our clientele really allows them to embrace the messages these brands represent,” explains Apricot Lane store owners.
The Apricot Lane team spends day and night searching for the newest brands that ‘do good’ and ‘give back’ to society and feels it’s their responsibility as a store to help spread these messages. It just so happens they can spread them through style setting pieces at the same time. Some of the other brands featured in the store include Good Works Makes A Difference, ALMA | Soul, FairTrade Fashion Designs.
