Here A Table, There A Table, Everywhere A Lifetime Table!

Even after being part of the Lifetime team for nearly 10 years now, I still get a little giddy every time I see a Lifetime table when I’m out and about.  This past weekend, I was practically jumping up and down when my husband and I went to an outdoor concert at Whitewater Amphitheatre in New Braunfels, Texas.  Whitewater is appropriately named because it is nestled amongst the trees in the Texas hill country on the banks of the bubbly Guadalupe River.  It is an absolute picturesque setting for enjoying concerts in the summer evenings under the stars.

As soon as we walked into the facilities, I was greeted by Lifetime banquet tables at the ticket entrance and in the merchandise area where they were selling concert t-shirts and souvenirs.  However, my real excitement came as I walked a few steps further and saw nearly 50 Lifetime 6’ picnic tables set up for guests to mingle at away from the concert crowd.  What a great setting for picnic tables - next to the horseshoe pit, kids’ playset, and huge shade trees - with the rocky Texas hills as a backdrop.

But my giddiness didn’t stop there.  Nope, as we continued into the actual concert viewing area, there was a VIP Table area for guests to order food and drinks while watching the concert.  Guess what were used as the VIP Tables?  Yes, more Lifetime picnic tables!  Probably another 50 or so tables! 

I’m still not sure who was more excited…my husband to see his favorite Texas bands Mickey and the Motorcars, Charlie Robinson, and, Reckless Kelly…or me to see more than 100 Lifetime picnic tables!  If you’ve been to some place with lots of Lifetime products being used, feel free to share them on our Facebook page, we’d love to see them!

Hi Lifetime!

I just discovered you are THE official Table for the WORLDS LONGEST YARD SALE!  I actually was the featured shopper a few years ago on HGTV's Longest Yard Sale show and I'm an avid flea market fan! It was a hot but fabulous trip and I hope to make the trip down Hwy 127 again!

FYI:  A few years ago I did an SMT for your outdoor sheds!  It was fun working with your PR team!

The Winner of Our Biggest Giveaway of the Year is….
Wow! When we announced we were hosting our biggest giveaway of the year,your entries started rolling in fast! Not only did we give away our BIGGEST type of product we make, we also had the biggestnumber of entries to date. We asked you to simply tell us how you would use a Lifetime shed and, boy, did we get an earful. Lawn and gardenequipmenttopped the list as the most popular items people planned to keep in a Lifetime shed. However,storing outdoor toys and bikes, garage stuff and tools, extrakids' clothes, and holiday decorations were also frequently mentioned. We even had some creative plans including to use the shed for a workshop, a "man cave", a playhouse, storing boat equipment, storing pool equipment,hiding a water tank, and keeping firewood dry. Clearly, the uses for a Lifetime shed are limited only to your imaginatio...
Backyards Inc. Changes Name to Lifetime Store
Things are starting to look a little different along the Wasatch Front in Utah, and I'm not just talking about the fresh layers of snow on the mountains. We are excited to tell you that Backyards Inc., the Lifetime factory retail store, is changing its name to "Lifetime Store". Start watching for the name change to take place over the course of the next four months with updates to all outdoor signage to be completed by February 2011. For those of you who don't live in Utah, you'll see a change, too. Our online store will soon share the Lifetime Store name to give customers a simpler shopping experience. So why did we make this change? Most importantly, for you - our customers! Even though Backyards Inc. has always been owned by Lifetime, there was no easy way for our customers to instantly recognize Backyards Inc. as Lifeti...
Over 500 Lifetime Employees Beautify Two Parks and a Cemetery in West Point
What another great service experience last weekend! On Saturday, September 17, the remaining 500 Lifetime employees (who did not attend Ogdens Service Project on September 10) helped clean up Loy Blake Park, East Park and West Point City cemetery in West Point, Utah to participate in Lifetimes 6th Annual Employee Community Service Project. Between both projects, we dedicated approximately 2,700 man-hours, saving both cities thousands of dollars in labor to accomplish complete park makeovers. These projects included everything from installing a drainage system in the playground area that was collecting water, cutting tree rings, leveling headstones, replenishing bark, rebuilding a fire pit to painting playground equipment and picnic tables. It was quite a site to see so many people working together to make the parks and cemet...
