Just when we thought last year’s entries for the annual Zappos Peeps Contest couldn’t get any better, this year’s 30 “peeptacular” entries proved us wrong!

In the spirit of Easter bunnies, chicks, marshmallows and all things sugar coated, Zapponians flexed their creative muscles to create some impressive Peeps™ dioramas depicting all kinds of pop culture themes—from Justin Timberlake’s hot new “Suit & Tie” video, to the ubiquitous “Harlem Shake” phenomenon and everything in between!

Great job everyone! Can’t wait to see what next spring’s Peeps Contest has in store!

Every spring before Easter, Zapponians take part in an annual Peeps showdown to flex their arts and craft skills as well as their fondness for the classic marshmallow treats.

There were some very creative dioramas this year including: “Dancing with the Peeps”, “Hoarding Peeps: Buried Alive”,  “Occupy Peeps Street” and the teen flick mash up —“The Hunger, Harry Potter, Twilight Games”

Weekly Trends: Nautical & Easter

The start of spring always gets us excited about two things: warmer weather and Easter fun! That’s why this week’s Shop By pages are featuring both nautical and Easter looks for both men and women.

Nautical: The nautical trend is really making a huge splash in fashion this season, although it’s a trend that’s been around for ages. It just goes to show how timeless this style is! Invest in classic pieces like a striped tee, comfy boat shoes and a few solid pieces in navy, white and red--- trust us, they’ll instantly become indispensable in your spring/summer wardrobe.

Easter: This holiday rings in the beginning of spring season. With pastels being such a huge trend in fashion these days, Easter looks are definitely spot-on, whether you’re celebrating or not. Guys, if you’re a little weary of pastel shades, try infusing a little dose with a pastel-colored tie or layer a pastel tee underneath a button-up shirt.

The Amazing Easter Hunt

Here at the Zappos HQ, we love to celebrate every holiday. Actually, we love to celebrate just about everything, and always manage to find reasons for celebrations. Since Easter is coming up this weekend, we held an Amazing Easter Hunt yesterday. What is the Amazing Easter Hunt you ask? It’s a crazy combo of Minute To Win It, The Amazing Race and a good old-fashioned Easter Egg Hunt.

Each team had to complete Minute To Win It-style games such as strapping on a belt with a tissue box filled with ping pong balls and shaking and shimmying like mad in order to get all the balls out of the box as fast as possible.

After teams were eliminated, three teams were left standing to do the actual Easter Egg Hunt. The premise was like The Amazing Race in that they had to complete challenges to get clues about where the eggs are hidden. In the end, Team "Egg-cellence" (Corey B., Jesse C. and Maureen S.) reigned supreme and took home 1st place.

A team of Zapponians came up with the great idea to get some candy and other easter treats and rally the whole office to take a few minutes out of their day to create and personalize Easter bags that will all be given to NCCF.

Who knew we had so many Easter bunnies among us? We hope these colorful Easter bags will bring smiles to the kids’ faces this Easter.

Hop Into Easter With Primigi Shoes

The Easter season brings with it lots of celebration and time spent with family. From painting Easter eggs to Easter egg hunts and the famous Easter bunny, this season is brimming with springtime fun! One of the time-honored family traditions associated with Easter is getting the whole family into their “Sunday best”. The little ones are certainly no exception from this fun dress-up time. In fact, getting the kids all dressed up is one of the many joys of the holidays.

Primigi has so many adorably dressy kids’ shoes to choose from this season. For little boys, there’s the Primigi Choate-E, a classic loafer that gives your little guy that distinguished, stylish look. For the little ladies, the Primigi Kids Ela 2 is a pretty mary jane that goes perfectly with all those darling Easter dresses and bonnets! If your little girl needs a cute spring sandal, the Primigi Evette is just the right mix of girly and casual. They’re perfect for a nice play date in the park. These shoes not only look precious, they’re built with comfort and kid-friendly durability in mind.

So this season, give your little ones the greatest Easter memories by celebrating fun, time-honored traditions, and of course getting them excited about putting on their best Easter outfits.
