Running Skirts Store Grand Opening

Whew - it's been a crazy busy work week - lots of exciting news in skirt world! All the grand opening prep & festivities provided a much-needed distraction from the less-than-stellar Carlsbad race last week!

Now that we are into our 5th year in the business, it was a natural progression to open a beautiful boutique for our local customers to shop. No longer do our local skirt fans have to maneuver the shipping box mountains and rolling rack obstacles in the "skirt mines" in order to pick out a new skirt, make a quick gift exchange or purchase. With our new expansion and storefront renovation, now there's a pinkalicious fitness boutique we now affectionately refer to in the skirt mines as "the happy place" to shop in.

The grand opening was awesome! Ultima sports drink was on site serving up there oh-so-yummy "ultima-tinis", Bart Yasso stopped by for a book signing, even the mayor was on hand for this skirtactular celebration. One more ultima-tini and we would have had him in a skirt too!

Check out the photos below!

Our guest of honor, Bart Yasso was the first to walk the hot pink carpet....he walked in in jeans!

And came out in a running skirt!

That's what happens when you visit Running Skirts - our unique boutique for the stylish athlete! Our super comfy & cute skirts are irresistable!

Meet the San Diego running skirts team!
