Earth Day is this Sunday April 22. To celebrate we would like to share with you what NYS Collection is doing to reduce our carbon footprint.
NYS has already taken a giant step in our efforts to go green. Our currently eco-friendly plastic display boxes have gotten a makeover. The bottom of our boxes are now made from recycled cardboard. This will help save over 200,000 lbs of plastic per year! These boxes have already been launched across all of our locations nationwide.
Other efforts that we will be working on include a revamp of our current shopping bags. This includes canvas bags and other alternatives to the ones we traditionally use. Keep an eye out for more green things to come!
How do you go green for Earth Day or everyday?

This past Friday, NYS Collection had a very exciting event. We had our first ever NYS Collection & Elite photo shoot. The location: Pier 17 at the South Street Sea Port in New York City. The backdrop: the Brooklyn Bridge. Many of the styles selected were ones that are featured on our retail website along with other new styles that are not yet available.
The first half of the photo shoot consisted of NYS Collection styles. The theme for the NYS Collection portion of the shoot was a relaxed everyday feel. The models were encouraged to do silly things and have fun. The second half of the shoot was for the NYS Collection exclusive Elite line. The models shined while showing the Elite attitude.
Keep an eye our for our new pictures that will be coming soon! In the meantime, check out our Facebook page for some behind the scenes photos.
A special thanks to Dave Kotinsky Photography, Beekman Beer Garden Beach Bar, & all those who contributed to a very successful day!

The thought of Spring Break might seem a little far off for most, but March is just around the corner. For those of you who will be whisked away to a tropical location, haven’t you spent enough on the trip itself? Looking great on vacation shouldn’t cost much. To the rest of the people who will be staying home, it doesn’t hurt to at least look good on your week off.
A common misconception is that the most expensive sunglasses are the best kind. Sorry to burst your bubble, but that’s not necessarily true. High prices cannot guarantee sufficient protection. There is no correlation between high prices and increased UV protection. A 2008 study reported that “Expensive brands do not guarantee optimal UVA protection.”
So why spend more when you can spend less? NYS Collection has the hottest and latest trends in eyewear that will make you look good without breaking the bank. Plus if you leave them on vacation, you won’t feel so guilty about it when you come home.
If you are looking for sunglasses with a higher quality and an unconditional lifetime warranty then you should check out NYS Collection Elite line. The entire NYS Collection Elite line is priced under $100 so you get designer quality without the designer price tag.
Which would you rather, an expensive pair with a designer label or same quality without the designer price tag?
True or False: You only need to wear sunglasses in the warmer months. False (just in case the title didn’t allude you to the answer). It is important to protect your eyes regardless of temperature.
Even though you may not be able to feel the warmth of the sun’s rays, they are still harmful. In the heart of winter you are exposed to double the UV exposure. Both UVA & UVB rays can still cause some serious damage to not only your eyes, but the skin around them too. The area of sensitive skin around your eyes can sustain a lot of sun damage if it’s not protected. Believe it or not when it snows that’s when the sun’s rays are strongest because they reflect off of the snow.
So what should you do? Shade your eyes year round, no matter what the temperature is. Make sure you choose styles that cover and protect them. A Shield style is a great way to go to protect yourself without sacrificing style.
You can even go a step further and try a Polarized lens. Polarized lenses will clarify any glare that may be caused by the sun reflecting off the snow or even just your car windshield.
Which style will you choose?
Every week NYS Collection hosts contests throughout our various social media networks. In honor of Valentine’s Day, yesterday on our Facebook page we held a contest for the best love story.
In order to win a free pair of sunglasses, anyone could write a short and sweet love story about themselves or someone else. The posts were not confined to just romantic love stories. A love story could have been anything that brings you that warm feeling of love. Of the posts, 3 were to be chosen in order of how many Likes! their story had. One in particular swept everyone away.
Here’s Francesca’s story:
I met my fiance my first month in college. I asked him out 3 months after we met by sending him on a scavenger hunt all over campus as well as the local McDonald’s. I was his present at the end and I handed him a not asking him to check yes or no if he would go out with me. Of course he said yes! Now its 5 years later and on New Years day he took me to NYC and proposed to me in front of everyone at Rockefeller Center, while we got pictures professionally taken in front of the tree. Of course I said yes! He is my best friend and the love of my life. We are soul mates and I didn’t need a ring to know we would be together for the rest of our lives. The rest of our lives together started the moment we met ♥
Happy Valentine’s Day!
