spotify visit + playlist


Last week, Spotify’s worldwide team visited Nashville for their company retreat. They had a amazing crash course in all things Nashville and part of their trip was spent with us for a night of shopping, food and music. We at i+w are so thrilled with their service as it allows us to share the music that is on our minds with our family, friends and customers so it was such an honor to host them and get to know them personally and more of what the service is about and where it is headed. And it is always so lovely getting to share a bit of what we are about as a brand and as a city.

blood & oil


Nashville’s own are the study of this short film, Blood & Oil. shot at directed by Cale Glendening. his words describe it best:


“Blood & Oil speaks to all avenues of creativity and passionate endeavors – the common thread being desire, determination and the relentless pursuit it takes to see them through. That feeling that wakes you in the dead of night, the call to action that courses through your veins. It doesn’t matter what you do or what your passion is, there is always room to be challenged, to grow, advance and to be more inspired. With that heart and intention, Blood & Oil is about wanting to create, be more awake and to be more alive.”

in-store only; NO email or phone sales. first come, first serve – get ‘em while we got ‘em


a few insider tips we’ve learned over the years:


#1 the “cash only” line is always shorter - bring cash if you’re in a hurry


#2 avoid huge lines for the dressing rooms - gals, you can avoid ‘em, wear tights, bike shorts or a dress. anything you can throw jeans on top of. and for the boys? shorts… long johns… you’ll think of something


#3 the jeans only stay so organized for so long - so boys, if you look down and the jean you are trying on has a zipper, you’re wearing lady pants.
