Tres Ladies T-Shirt Giveaway!

Tres Ladies T-Shirt Giveaway!

A couple weeks ago, Sara sent me a link to an Etsy store that carries what we immediately deemed the best t-shirts in the world. Including the most perfect tee ever. Why? Well, I think you already know how I feel about cupcakes. If you’re reading this blog, chances are, you think fondly upon them yourselves. But unfortunately, eating all those cupcakes doesn’t go unnoticed on my waistline. So, I tend to spend quite a bit of time at the gym running on the treadmill. Sara and I joke that the only reason we really work out is so we can eat cupcakes and other delicacies.

The t-shirt we fell in love with?

Could it get any more perfect than that?

Actually, Tres Ladies, a company run by three sisters in California, make several perfect t-shirts for girls who are into staying in shape, eating cupcakes, drinking wine…you know, the important things in life.

Tres Ladies have an Etsy shop, but they also have a website that includes more of their designs. And, as if the cute sayings aren’t enough, the t-shirts are incredibly comfortable- Extremely soft and super long; just the way I like them.

I got the chance to ask the ladies a few questions about their business and well, um cupcakes too. They were happy to answer AND want to give one of We are not Martha’s readers a t-shirt of your choice! All you have to do is visit the Tres Ladies website and leave us a comment telling us what shirt you would choose and why.

Q: What made you girls start Tres Ladies? Have you always wanted to start a company?

A: After 5 years of racing marathons, we grew tired of the “manly” running tees that races hand out. Ideas were brewing for a while but when the third sister finished college this year, our entrepreneurial spirit wishes became a priority. We’re also very eco-minded and Tres Ladies is a way of combining our passion for fitness, health, and fashion. We knew we wanted to work together on something big!

Q: As sisters, is it ever hard working with each other?

A: As sisters, it’s 100% easier working together. We’re a very close family and often get help from mom, dad, boyfriends, husbands, and grandma. We are incredibly different and we know each other’s strengths and weaknesses so it makes it easier to delegate accordingly and ask for help when things get overwhelming. Sometimes we have so much fun we forget that we’re working, and in that sense it is a bit harder running this company as a family.

Q: Do you have more t-shirt designs in the works? Any you want to give us hints about?

A: We have several t-shirt designs in the works. Being runners from California, we wanted to focus more on what makes us unique in the business. We are dedicated to fashion, fitness, and fun and we’re streamlining our product line to reflect the celebratory food groups (what motivates us to get out there on cold winter months). Hint hint: cupcakes, lattes, chocolate, and wine are what motivate us to run. After the fall marathon season comes to a close, we will be able to focus on offering our “nutrition” and eco-friendly designs.

Q: What is your favorite cupcake shop?

A: We have offices on both coasts, so our favorite cupcakes in the Bay Area come from Icing on the Cake in Los Gatos, and our favorite cupcake shop in Washington D.C. is Hello Cupcake (their Gluten-free pumpkin spice is to die for!).

    The cupcake shirt is my favorite, but the mascara one is pretty funny, too.

  3. suburban prep says:

    I like the one about cupcakes because who doesn’t love cupcakes.

  4. Legallyheidi says:

    tweeted and am planning on blogging about it πŸ™‚

  5. Sarah says:

    Red wine is my vice, so that is definitely my favorite!

  7. Julie Q says:

    ooo the cupcake T for sure is my favorite!! Who wouldn’t want hot pink writing on a T

  8. emily says:

    have to agree with Julie on this one – i’m loving the cupcake t-shirt with the hot pink writing. i probably do more eating cupcakes than i do running but i’m trying to get better, i promise.

  9. Lauren says:

  10. Maris says:

    The cupcake one is very cute! Such a creative idea…why don’t I think of these things!? πŸ™‚

  11. rattynposh says:

    Aww snap! These shirts are awesome!

  12. TKTC says:

    I’m going to go with 1 bottle of wine= 5 miles. Because 1 bottle of wine is an excellent way to quantify an evening:)

  13. Erin says:

    Definitely the cupcake shirt, although I’m a little torn/terrified knowing how many calories are in that bottle of wine I like to polish off with such relish. That’s almost an hour on the elliptical…

  14. kara says:

    I love the wine shirt. it’s both fashionable AND helpful πŸ˜‰

  15. lhrdst1 says:

    Does this shirt make my butt look fast is the BEST shirt of them all! Not only do I exercise fast but I also walk fast and I would be surprised if anyone tried to read my shirt when I wore it that they would have to tackle me down to read it

  16. James says:

    I love the cupcake shirt! I’m starting pastry school in Jan, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to start running the extra calories off!

  17. Katelin says:

    i love the cupcake shirt, it’s just too perfect! what a fun giveaway πŸ™‚

  18. Peckish says:

    I’m all about the wine shirt – who doesn’t love dashing from the gym to a shower then…straight to happy hour?

  19. GET IT GIRL says:

    I love the cupcake shirt because I love cupcakes!! I HAVE to run to cancel out the amount that I eat!

  20. ACL says:

    My very, very favorite is the “does this t-shirt make my butt look fast”. Being a gal with a borderline J-Lo booty, I struggle with wanting to display it to advantage without having it be the main attraction. Though I’m not much of a runner, perhaps that’s a good thing because I’ll actually be going slow enough for people to read it AND showcasing my buns with a little style. LOVE IT!! =o)

  21. thatShortChick says:

    heard about this great giveaway from Heidi at Life in Pink and HAD to enter!!

    i triple LOVE the cupcake shirt because it’s oh so true.

  22. Momisodes says:

    I LOVE cupcakes! I’m even tempted to drive down to D.C. just to try those Hello Cupcakes. So naturally I love the cupcake shirt. But the butt shirt is a close second πŸ™‚

    p.s. I’m not sure I want to find out how many miles equal a cupcake.

  23. Heather says:

    I love the cupcake one. Working out is one way for me to indulge in my huge sweet tooth!

  24. Jen says:

    I love the wine one. Such a wonderful idea!

  25. Working Girl Two says:

    the wine t-shirt for sure. wine is my friend and my enemy haha.

  26. veron says:

    I love the cupcake one, it is so me…I workout because I want to eat more…

  27. RecipeGirl says:

    The cupcake shirt has to be my fave. I love the attention that it would attract at my exercise class πŸ™‚

  28. magda says:

    Seeing as my mantra is already “bottle of wine = hour of cardio,” I’d pick the wine shirt. But definitely the cupcakes if it came in small! These are So. Cute. Just in time for christmas : )

  29. Sena says:

    I love the Mascara tee because it’s so fun and funny! πŸ™‚

    The wine bottle t-shirt – that is my life. Thank you Tres Ladies for reading my mind. I love it!

  33. Carmen says:

    I LOVE the black wine t-shirt! Tres Ladies ROCKS!

  34. Jennifer says:

    OMG! Love these shirts. I have three sisters, and we are all runners (only 2 have ran marathons so far). So I have to have the cupcake and the wine shirt. I don’t want to post to my blog, b/c I think these will be gifts for 2 of my sisters, and I don’t want them to see the shirts until Christmas. If I don’t win, please send that coupon code!

  35. Melanie says:

    Oh my goodness, these shirts are awesome. I really like the “Does this shirt make my butt look fast?” one. How funny!

  36. Liz C. says:

    The cupcake one is my favorite. I live in Downtown Chicago and am surrounded by yummy cupcakes which keeps me on the treadmill!

  37. Ashley says:

    Ahh! I want that cupcake one.

    I’m so glad I found this contest before it’s too late!! πŸ™‚

  38. tootie says:

    I love the cupcake shirt! It made me laugh because it’s so true.

    The wine one is also very cool. My neighbor (also a runner) would love it!

  39. Louise at Livin Local says:

    As someone who recently completed her first half marathon, “Does this shirt make my butt look fast” is the perfect fit for me. I trained with 3 other women, and while we did walk the whole race (our plan), we were passing joggers all along the route! The fact that this shirt is even long enough to cover some booty shows the clear design concept.

  40. Larissa says:

    I love the wine t-shirt, because that is seriously how I think about my junk food/beverage intake…in the amount of exercise it takes to burn the calories!

  41. LegallyBoston says:

    I run because I love cupcakes – LOVE IT!!
