Angel Vancouver has a limited number of new Desigual umbrellas to protect you from spring showers, which are expected to return Saturday after a week of glorious sunshine and temperatures in the mid 20s C.
But you can’t buy these umbrellas, which just arrived Thursday. We’re giving away a free umbrella to each customer who spends $250 on Desigual.
The umbrellas come in two styles. One says “I’m singing in the rain” inside, when the umbrella is open.
The umbrellas are valued at $49 each. And we only have two dozen. Make that less than two dozen — we just gave one to a man who loves the Desigual men’s line and was thrilled to get a free umbrella.
We also have Desigual rain ponchos for customers who spend at least $200 on Desigual at Angel Vancouver. The poncho folds up into its own pocket in front, so it’s compact enough to fit in your purse or backpack.
And once the warm weather returns next week, we’ll have more new arrivals from Desigual to post.
Angel Vancouver has the largest selection in Vancouver of Desigual clothing for men, women and kids. Desigual produces 1,000 new pieces every season. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, we might be able to order it in for you. We ship worldwide. (You can click on the top bar to see all the Desigual in stock for Spring-Summer.)
Angel Vancouver is located at No. 2 Powell Street in the Gastown district of Vancouver, Canada. Our store is on the corner of Powell & Carrall Street in Maple Tree Square, which is where Vancouver began. The photo above shows what my store looked like in 1886.
Desigual’s slogan is La Vida es Chula (Life is Cool)! It reflects the Barcelona brand’s way of thinking, which is influenced by the Mediterranean sun, the light and lust for life, instilled with a playful and creative attitude that says: Be confident. Don’t be afraid to be yourself.
Today’s music video is Canadian country-rock band Blue Rodeo performing a 1993 song, Five Days in May:Here’s another song, Try, from 1987This is Blue Rodeo’s breakout hit, Diamond Mine, from 1989:And since we started off talking about rain, here’s Buddy Holly in the recording studio, singing Raining in My Heart:The song was released in 1959, the same year Holly died in a plane crash in Iowa. The Texan was just 22. Bob Dylan was 17 when he saw Buddy Holly perform two days before Holly died. Dylan once recalled of the concert: “I was three feet away from him…and he LOOKED at me.” Holly’s death inspired Don McLean to write American Pie in 1971; this version has subtitles en español:Click here to watch the documentary The Day the Music Died.
