Congrats to the “Fierce Five”

Wednesday, August 01, 2012 | COLUMNS: Around Town, Campaigns

Like millions around the world, last night’s Olympic gymnastics event had us glued to the TV. All five members of Team USA looked flawless as they swung, spun and soared through each routine, taking home the gold for the first time since the 1996 games here in Atlanta. That team, dubbed the Magnificent Seven, included such superstars as Dominique Dawes, Shannon Miller and Kerri Strug, who vaulted for gold on a sprained ankle. Determined not to be outdone, Jordyn Wieber, Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross and McKayla Maroney each demonstrated a competitiveness that earned them the title, “the fierce five”. From all of us at Pür: congrats!

Supporting Women’s Heart Health in Style

Friday, June 01, 2012 | COLUMNS: Around Town, Campaigns

Here at Pür, we never miss a chance to support for our favorite cause: women’s heart health. Which is why we’re super excited for Go Red For Women®’s annual luncheon here in Atlanta on June 5th. As the no. 1 killer of American women, heart disease affects us all and has personally touched each of us here at Pür.

Red Bag_wProductEvents like this are critical to raising awareness (and much- needed funding). They’re also a lot of fun. With red as the theme (it is Go Red after all), everyone is rocking their finest scarlets, crimsons and roses. We can’t wait to show off our new, flame red GLINT clutch, packed with a few of our Pür Purpose favorites.
