Here’s to You, Dad.

Thanks dad, for everything you do for us. Thanks for the memories, for the adventures, for teaching us the little things like how to start a campfire and the big things like how to treat other people. We’re who we are today partially because of you and we want you to know we love you.

Our fathers and father figures deserve a little extra love this Father’s Day and we know just the spot to shop. On now, you’ll save 20% on clothing and accessories, plus you’ll find discounts on bikes, water sports, winter toys, and so, so much more.  Show him how much you appreciate him. (And treat yourself too, while you’re at it!)

Father's Day

If you need a little inspiration, check out the ideas for dad we posted last year. Or consider a little something from the following brands – brands known to be the guys’ favorites.

Save the Hassle & Get a Yakima Rack

Yakima 3

We’ve probably all tried to cram a bike into the too-small trunk, always to realize it’s not worth the scratches, grease, and parts moved out of alignment. Maybe the snow covered skis that begin to drip all over the moment you crank the heat is more familiar to you? If you’re feeling us, this is where Yakima comes in.

Yakima makes racks for a variety of needs with a variety of prices. If you need to carry your bike, you can choose to carry it on top of your car or on a hitch mount. Need a cargo box up top? Sure thing, how much space do you need? Want to carry kayaks or skis? Yakima racks can do it all.

Here’s how car-top Yakima systems work:

1- Start with the parts you need to create the rack system on the top of your car. Depending on the make/model/year of your car, and what it may or may not come with from the factory, we’ll select the specific clips & bars you need. This part stays on your car and acts as the “base” to build off of.

2- Once you have your base, you can choose which systems you want to add, depending on what you want to carry. Onto your bars, you can attach the kayak carriers, bike carriers, cargo boxes, etc. These parts can be easily taken on and off, so you can customize your rack for the weekend ahead.

Come chat with our staff about your car & carrying needs and we’ll help you out. And, if you act soon, you can take advantage of an offer from Yakima and get a $20 rebate for purchases over $300. Yakima

You taught us well, Mom

We’re a first class outdoor specialty store, not a greeting card shop.  But, we know a good poem when we read one. And we’re all about value, so we like a good sale.  You taught us well, Mom.

How did you find the energy, Mom
To do all the things you did,
To be teacher, nurse and counselor
To me, when I was a kid.Screen Shot 2015-04-20 at 2.01.16 PM..

How did you do it all, Mom,
Be a chauffeur, cook and friend,
Yet find time to be a playmate,
I just can’t comprehend.
I see now it was love, Mom
That made you come whenever I’d call,
Your inexhaustible love, Mom
And I thank you for it all.

Life is great in Wausau, Wisconsin for lucky kids whose mom’s teach them how to ski, camp, paddle, do yoga, ice skate, waterski, bike, roller skate, play tennis, sing, read, cook, plant, paint, care for the environment and care for others.  We personally thank Dorothy, Carol, and all of our moms for all they do for us, and all they have taught us.  Happy Mother’s Day!

For a lot of us, March is that lost month.  We’re enjoying the best skiing of the season while looking forward to Spring Break on the beach or warm days at the lake or on the trail.

At Shepherd & Schaller you don’t have to choose which season to celebrate and plan for.  All March long you’ll get end-of-the-season clearance prices on our remaining ski and snowboard equipment and 25-70% off winter outerwear and sportswear.  At the same time, enjoy 20% off retail price on select water ski, wakeboard, bike, tennis, camping and paddling gear and new summer fashions, yoga, swim and footwear.

You decide.  Is it our best post-season sale or pre-season sale of the year?  We’re here to help you make the most of your time in store and out.

Happy March!
