To all the wonderful people, an announcement:
In the eight years since we started Tender Loving Empire, we have released over 50 projects via our record label and sold the work of hundreds of artists through our brick and mortar store in downtown Portland, Oregon. Because of the unwavering dedication and support of our fans, family, staff and people like you, we’ve been able to survive a recession, hire eight amazing people and still love what we do. But we're not done yet!
Over the next few months we’ll be making lots of exciting changes that will make TLE more accessible, more fun and provide more opportunities for all the artists we represent.
This holiday season, we’ll be opening our second Portland retail location at 3541 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
We’ll be teaming up with the amazing designers at Fieldwork Design
to make what we think will be an epic retail experience.
We’re developing our own line of shirts, cards, prints and accessories that will be available in both of our brick and mortar stores, online and in select partner stores nationwide.
Thanks to the design magicians over at Cabin,
TLE now has a new look and feel - the visual representation of all this positive energy and change.
This November, we are launching a new pay-what-you-want based website that benefits charity with each purchase using the tools developed by our sister company Generous
and the staggeringly-qualified web guys at Knicknack.
We’ve moved out of our cramped quarters above the downtown store and into new digs at 412 NW Couch St. Suite 412,
in Portland. If you’re in the area, come say hello!
We feel so blessed to be able to do what we love for a living: helping creative people do what they love for a living. We could not have done any of this without your support. You are truly a part of this place.
Jared Mees, Brianne Mees and the enitre TLE staff.
