Jewelry, Perfume, and Purses Oh My…..


It’s almost Valentine’s Day.  For some of us, it is a dreaded day of the year, but for others, it is a loved day (literally!).  What do you get the special someone for Valentine’s Day?  How much candy can one person consume?  Flowers just die…that makes them so worth the money that they cost for this day!  So why not think a little more practical this year?  Get them something that they can actually use and love!


Ren13egade has a wide selection of jewelry in stock.  We carry Montana Silversmiths, Rock 47, S2ilver Strike, and more.  Anything from rings to necklaces and everything in between.  What’s even better is that ours won’t break the bank!  Check out our jewelry online for ideas.



Let’s not forget about perfume and cologne as a gift option.  What better than giving that special someone a scent that you love too?!  I personally love this idea for Valentine’s Day.  We have a wide variety of scents for both ladies and men.


Ok, so another great gift idea is a new purse or wallet.  Renegade carries ladies’ purses with matching wallets if you so choose.  If you’re looking for that special man in your life, why not get him a new billfold or wallet?  We have TONS of options in this department.  Can’t decide on which one to get?  No worries!  Just let one of our knowledgeable, friendly sales associates help you!


Of course we do carry all the different options of clothing and footwear that you or your loved one could possibly dream of.  There is nothing wrong with getting them something to wear out on a night on the town!  From your hat to your boots, Renegade will have you covered.


So this Valentine’s Day, think outside of the Hallmark box!  Stop in to Renegade and let us show you something that your loved one will love with a price that you will love.  After all, do you really want to spend your hard earned money on something that melts or dies?! 



T-minus 7 Days to Prepare for Love…..



Ok… at Renegade, we don’t believe that love is only expressed, or should only be expressed one day a year.  Yes, that’s right, I’m talking about Valentine’s Day.  To some, this day is dreaded and loathed, and to others, it is looked forward to all year long.  As I got to thinking about Valentine’s Day, I wanted to really know how it got to be.  Looking it up, there were so many different and world-spread answers to my mind-boggling questions.  I searched and searched for any uniformity among the research.  Here is a little bit of information about “The Day of Love”.


*”The St. Valentine the day is named for was, most likely, a priest in the 3rd century who performed secret marriages when the Roman Emperor Claudius II thought single soldiers were more likely to enlist in the army. That St. Valentine was imprisoned and executed on February 4, 270. It is believed he was responsible for giving the jailer’s blind daughter back her eyesight, and before his execution, he sent her a note saying, “From your Valentine.” The phrase is still widely used on valentines today.


*It wasn’t until 1537 that St. Valentine’s day was declared an official holiday. England’s King Henry VIII, known for his ways of disposing of wives, declared February 14th a holiday. It was another century and a half before religious devotional cards became non-religious cards to reflect the change in the holiday.

*In 496 A.D., February 14, was declared in the name of St. Valentine by Pope Gelasius. It remained a Church holiday until 1969, when Pope Paul VI took it from the calender.


*On February 14, the ancient Romans celebrated the Feast of Lupercalia in honor of Juno, the queen of the Roman gods and goddesses. Juno was also the goddess of women and marriage so honoring her was thought to be a fertility rite.  At the feast held the next day, the women would write love letters and stick them in a large urn. The men would pick a letter from the urn and for the next year, pursue the woman who wrote the chosen letter. This custom lasted until the 1700s when people decided their beloveds should be chosen by sight, not luck.” (


I have discovered some weird rituals that were part of the early Valentine’s Day traditions, and I have discovered a dark history that is almost the polar opposite of what Valentine’s Day is portrayed to be in our day and age.  However Valentine’s Day came to be, Renegade has that special gift to light up your sweetheart’s eyes.  

Here at Renegade, we believe that nothing can be more romantic and thoughtful than something that can be worn or used.  I know, I know…..what about those chocolates and flowers, right?  Well here me out.  Wouldn’t you rather spend your hard-earned money on something that lasts?  Something that is used or worn?  Wouldn’t you like to see your Valentine’s Day dollar stretch a little bit farther this year?  So now that we are just one week away from “go time”, stop in to Renegade and let one of our friendly, knowledgeable sales associates assist you with finding that one-of-a-kind gift to really show your love and caring.  Can’t make it in to the store before the 14th?  No worries!  Check out Renegade’s online store at and find that gift to make them gasp. Remember, you now have a week to grab up that special gift for your special Valentine, and what better place to get it then Renegade!  And to have your money stretch even farther this year, Renegade has some great deals now through February 16, 2014!




Our Denim Trade-In Sale Helps A Great Cause…..

Old wooden fence.

As many of you know, our great denim trade-in sale is occurring right now.  Many people ask us for more details on the actual trade-in, so here is a little more information for you.  For this sale, all you have to do is bring in a pair of jeans that you no longer need, want, or can wear (for whatever reason).  This sale offers you, our loyal customers a discount of 20% on a new pair of jeans with a trade-in.  So if you need two new pairs of jeans (girls, boyswomens, or mens), just bring in two trades.  You get 20% off a new pair for each trade you bring to us. What do we do with all of these trade-in’s?  Renegade donates all usable denim to a local organization known as Orphan Grain Train.  Renegade has worked with Orphan Grain Train in past years because we want to give back and help others in need.  There is a discount of 10% off per new pair that is offered without a trade-in, but with the denim going to such a good cause, now is the time to “get out with the old”.
