Join us in store on Wednesday, March 2nd from 5-7 pm for our upcoming event!
At Prery Collective, celebrating the work and talents of women artists and creators is core to our business. This week’s event features local motivational speaker and author Christina Glickman, and the Chicago-based environmentally and socially conscious clothing line Arya Athleisure.
This opportunity to gather in community and learn more about the work of these creative leaders is not to be missed! See below for a sneak peek of our upcoming event.
MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER AND AUTHOR OF XTRA: THE ART OF BEING
Christina Glickman is a mother of four, TEDx speaker, podcaster, best-selling author and founder of the XTRA Love Army, a movement to empower women to reclaim their voices and intentionally show up for themselves with unapologetic confidence. Based in Chicago, she is also a fashion addict and entrepreneur. With a prior background in advertising, Christina chose to center her work on being a champion of women.
Listen to her recent TEDx talk, "Reclaiming Our Voices. Women - One's You've Been Waiting For."
Her best-selling book, XTRA: The Art of Being, is for anyone who has ever felt like they need to compromise parts of who they are or show up as anything other than their authentic selves. Full of colorful images and inspirational words, this book encourages the awakening of the Xtra in all of us — reminding readers that life is meant to be lived as nothing less than the unique expression of who you truly are.
Pick up a signed copy of her book in store at our event!

"Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time" - RBG
A Chicago-based start-up founded in early 2020, Arya Athleisure was born out of combined passions for fashion, fitness and self-care. Their clothing is fairly priced, and they are committed to paying fair wages to their workers. The company donates 100% of proceeds from every sale to charities that are doing the work to strengthen our communities. The company's founders want to see members of these communities have the opportunity to live as their best selves, and built a clothing company to help make that possible.
Check them out in store at our event! You can also view Arya Athleisure products on our website.
