The sun is dipping lower in the sky and the nights grow just a bit cooler…do I see the hint of color in the leaves? Fall is in the air! With the fall season fast approaching there is excitement brewing here at le•top! It’s Back to School! Well, we do get excited about Fall fashions, but there is something else that stirs the senses – FOOTBALL RIVALRIES! Yes, this cute and cuddly children’s clothing company is home to some serious fans – so while we are busy shipping our FABULOUS Varsity Blues collection to waiting retailers our football fanatics are ‘showing their colors!’ Since le•top is available in retailers across the United States we thought we would ask a few ‘fans’ here in the office where their loyalties lie.
Sarah and Diana in Their Team Jerseys
Sarah, our le•top assistant designer loves her team! Sarah, growing up in Montana, really had the freedom to choose any team in the country – they are not ‘next’ to anything! She relates that her mom, a native of North Dakota has always favored their ‘neighbor’ – The Minnesota Vikings. Her Dad went with the Chicago Bears – but Sarah had to break with the family and choose the Indianapolis Colts. Why??? Peyton! She fell in love with football when Peyton Manning hooked her with his ‘Hail Mary!’ Now she is here in the San Francisco Bay Area…Niners? Raiders? She maintains “I’m a Colts fan for life!’
Diana, our customer service specialist extraordinaire, took at little different path to loyalty…She grew up in Los Angeles – a ‘city girl.’ The Raiders, based in LA during her childhood, gained Diana’s loyalty as she watched football with her older brother. She followed football just because she idolized her brother, and football was the common bond. When Diana, a ‘Navy Brat’ moved to the Bay Area (her father was stationed at Treasure Island) found out that the Raiders were moving back to the Bay Area there was celebrating in her family! She can’t wait until September…Go Raiders!
If you are “READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!” check out the le•top Varsity Blues collection – you fans and dads will love it! And as for me…NINERS RULE!

Sarah Showing us her Sparkly Ring
Last Thursday I heard shrieking from the front office…noises that herald the arrival of either: a new baby, a new puppy, or…an engagement ring! Sarah, Assistant Designer of le•top, walked into the office this past week and flashed her beautiful new accessory announcing her engagement! We are thrilled for Sarah, especially since we just love her fiancé Steve! Sarah, a Montana native, managed to meet the man of her dreams – a fireman that shoes horses as his ‘second job.’ The transplanted Cowgirl finds a California Cowboy!
Steve’s family loves Sarah! When news of the engagement spread to Steve’s family, and her soon-to-be brother-in-law started teaching their 4 year old daughter Gianna that Sarah would now be “Auntie” Sarah (rather than “Big” Sarah – to differentiate her from a preschool friend with the same name.) When Sarah arrived for a 1st birthday party for Gianna’s younger sister she greeted her with “Auntie Sarah, Auntie Sarah!” This was an exciting and heart warming surprise for Sarah! She is really happy to be part of her fiancé’s family and becoming “Auntie” Sarah made it official!!
