What are your favorite American Icons? I asked this question to many people over this week,
and last weekend, and got lots of different replies. Some of the answers I got were Hollywood
stars like Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe, various food brands, Statue of Liberty, American
Flag, ice cream shops, and many songs. All lovely answers that are true icons.


One of the retail stores that have become iconic in its own right over the years is Macy’s. It was established back in the mid-1800’s and is now one of the biggest department store chains in US. I shop at Macy’s quite a bit. The stores carry a wide range of brands, and products, and every time I go in there I feel like I come out with an item I love. I can’t wait to share all the fun American Icons events in my own state, and nearby.

Macy’s is proud to partner with those who served our country alongside Got Your Six. The Macy’s stores in various cities are hosting super fun events. Each event is a bit different, make sure to check out the details for your city. There will be patriotic photo opps to take #AmericanSelfie ‘s ; as you can guess this immediately got my attention as it is always fun to take pictures with friends & family. <3


Do you live in or near Portland, Oregon? If you do, you simply can’t miss the American Icons event in the closest Macy’s to you – Washington Square Mall Macy’s. I LOVE Washington Square; it’s one of the oldest, and nicest malls in Oregon in my opinion. Macy’s at this location is no different.


The Washington Square American Icons event is this Saturday May 16th, from 2 pm to 3 pm. This particular American Icons event is very exciting as it is directly fashion related. Hosted by stylist, and blogger Grasie Mercedes, you’ll discover everything you need to put together timeless, all -American ensemble.

There’ll be a special fashion show celebrating iconic style from some favorite American designers. After the fashion show you can shop the new styles, jamming to the live DJ. There’ll be complimentary drinks, and sweets, and of course you’ll get to take your #AmericanSelfie.

Ladies if you live in Portland, or near Washington Square don’t miss this fun day. If you don’t live in Oregon, don’t forget to check out if there is an American Icons event in your city!!

Will you attend a Macy’s American Icons event? What are your favorite American Icons? Would love to hear yours ladies! 🙂
