Whatever time it takes! Walk at your own pace, however slow or fast that is. Outside on most days; inside when it’s raining, freezing, or otherwise just too ugly to be outside.

Why else?
Walking can…

-Keep your joints healthy
-Help you manage your weight

-Strengthen your heart

Got questions about your health?

Please join us to upgrade your spring wardrobe for a good cause! O, The Oprah Magazine, and Talbots have teamed up for the second year in a row to launch a special capsule collection of clothes to benefit Dress for Success – an organization helping women in need get back into the workforce. Last year, this collaboration raised $1M and collected more than 4,000 boxes of clothing to help more than 20,000 in the workforce. This Saturday, shoppers will enjoy 25 percent off their entire purchase at all Triangle area Talbots locations, with 30 percent of sales from the collection going directly to Dress for Success. Talbots will also be collecting gently-used professional attire to donate to Dress for Success March 2-5, so this is a great excuse to get a head start on your spring closet cleaning! Bring your used clothing to the Talbots Spring Shopping Party and enjoy some light refreshments all while benefiting a great cause!
