Spring is in full bloom these days and with it come the many annual events that mark this time of renewal. Last week we covered Eco-Friendly socks for Earth Day. We thought Arbor Day, a similar event solely dedicated to the planting and caring for trees, would be the perfect occasion to highlight all of our tree-themed socks.
The first American Arbor Day was celebrated in 1872 in the Great Plains of Nebraska. Pioneers knew the true value of trees at a time when they were of paramount importance for fuel, building materials, and as natural wind-barriers to keep soil in place. Trees are still very important to us today; they’re needed to moderate temperature, clean the air, and provide habitat for wildlife.
At the first Arbor Day, prizes were offered to Nebraskan counties and citizens for properly planting the most trees that day. In fact, it’s estimated by the Arbor Day Foundation that more than one million trees were planted in Nebraska on that day! The Arbor Day Foundation is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to planting trees, with over one million members, supporters, and partners. Arbor Day itself may be seasonal, but your love for trees can be displayed all year-round with the right pair of socks!
Arbor Day is commonly observed in the United States on the last Friday in April, however, many states observe the day at other times to coincide with their region’s optimum planting weather. The State of Oregon officially recognizes Arbor Day as the first full week in April, but you can use this interactive map to find out when your state celebrates this day, as well. Protect your legs while you’re out planting trees with a pair of Dream Stockings. Not only will you look cute and keep dirt and allergens off your sensitive skin, you’ll be wearing eco-friendly regenerated cotton socks made right here in the USA.
If you don’t have the means to plant a tree of your own this Arbor Day, there are still plenty of other ways you can commemorate it! Spending some time cleaning up a public park, or volunteering with a local tree-planting organization, are two excellent ways to uplift your community. Additionally, mapping out a tree identification hike or hosting a “biggest tree” search in your neighborhood are fun ways to get out there and appreciate your local outdoors. If climbing trees is your favorite hands-on way to appreciate them, donning a pair of tights or leggings will help ensure that your modesty isn’t compromised—no matter how high you climb.
For more information about the Arbor Day Foundation and their current projects, you can visit their website to locate your nearest chapter and become a member. If you are planning on giving back this Arbor Day, please feel free to share your plans with us in the comments below! Regardless of whether you spend the day resting in the shade of a tree or volunteering in your community, we hope everyone gets a moment to reflect on the importance of trees and making the world a greener place this year!
Long Cuffable Scrunchable Socks in Hunter
Happy Fourth of July! Fireworks, cookouts, lots of flags! It’s an important holiday folks tend to celebrate in a fun way. The most patriotic thing is to celebrate and support the States by buying things made in the USA.
Of course, all of our Dream Stockings and Dreamer Socks styles are made here in the USA and we have some pretty slammin’ reds and royal blues.
We only have a handful of American Flag socks, but the run the style gamut from the practically superhero-like Old Glory Printed Trouser Socks to the almost vintage-feel of the Old Glory Midcalves (which are, funnily enough, the only flag socks we have that are made in the USA).
Now, you know my weakness is colours and pairing colours. So let’s shuck the origins for a little bit and just splash around in the boldly beautiful combo of red, white and blue after the jump. Consider it a tiny sock fireworks show! Heck, we’ll throw in some fireworks too!
While May might not be what you think of as harvest season, we think that with all of June’s Pride celebrations right around the corner this is the perfect time to expand on one of our most popular lines of socks: Harvest Rainbows!
These colorful thigh highs flew solo for the first few years of their reign, but with the recent addition of junior and youth sizes it’s looking like we might just have dynasty on our hands (or feet, if you will)!
Well a simple dynasty is not enough for us. Nope! That’s why we’ve added two more unisex, adult-sized options: Knee Highs and Crews! You see, while we adore thigh highs and hope you do too, we also don’t think that should be a requirement of rocking awesome, muted rainbows. Besides, they’re so perfect for the Pride festivals that take place during the rather warm month of June, it just made sense to make them in more Summery lengths!
With three foot sizes and multiple lengths, these rainbow socks are getting to be just as diverse as the people that they represent!
This time, we are packing up our sock stock and heading back out east to The Windy City! That’s right Chicago Dreamers, this coming weekend, April 25-27th we will be at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo– or as they call themselves C2E2.
Stop by our booth, #1180 and #1182 and come feel and see all the socks you’ve coveted, contemplated and drooled over from our site.
See you there, Chicago!
If you’ve been shopping with us for a while, you might know by now that while we carry socks from a multitude of different suppliers, we also have a few house brands that are made just a little bit dreamier than regular socks. These brands are Dream Stockings and Dreamer Socks, while gift cards and non-sock accessories such as garters and gloves are part of our third and eponymous brand: Sock Dreams!
This week we’re proud to announce the addition of yet another house line: Oops! Socks in the Oops! line are the same great socks that you recognize from Dream Stockings and Dreamer Socks, only these batches were made with some slight flaws! We don’t like wasting things (especially socks), so we’ve decided to sell these since their flaws have no effect on their structural integrity – we do feel that they merit a discount, however!
Oops! O Basics have just a bit of extra texture!
Some of these socks are only flawed in terms of sizing, but because they all have their own errors going on, we do recommend that you read their product information carefully – we want to provide you with savings, not unpleasant surprises!
Currently the line consists of four products, which will likely become a rotating selection as we sell out of flawed batches and get others in. Available now are Oops! Extraordinary Wool Socks, Extraordinary Thigh Highs, O Basics, and Extraordinary Stripes, some of which are perfectly normal except that they were supposed to be Extraordinarily Longer! As the selection is changed out, you’ll be able to find it in the Sale Section, or by simply typing “Oops!” into the search field!
Here at Sock Dreams we believe that even accidents can be happy, and in that spirit we hope that you will enjoy these variations on our dreamiest socks!
