This months issue of Click magazine is a celebration of all things stylish,
featuring all the wonderful wardrobes and beauty tips youve come to expect from
us this time of the year.
Our lead feature, a Spring Fling-themed fashion shoot (page 62), is a collaborative
piece done in conjunction with Abby Phillips and the good folks over at Memphis
Fashion Week. And for the latest on Memphis Fashion Week happenings, check
out our calendar on page 56.
Speaking of watching the calendar, event season is back full-force here in the
MidSouth and we couldnt be happier, with local stories on everything from Roy
Blount, Jr.s speaking appearance at the Hernando Public Library on April 24 (page
16) to Cory Branans Double Decker Arts Fest performance on April 21 (page 13) to
the upcoming Taste of DeSoto festivities (page 28).
And if youre not busy this April Fools Weekend, be sure to check out the Memphis
Comedy Festival. Weve spotlighted several upcoming acts for the March 31-April
3 event this month (page 85), so be sure to get out there and show the locals some
support. In addition, weve also devoted some space in this issue to the wonderful
Blankets for Barks program, an initiative to keep shelter dogs warm and cozy year-
round (page 26).
So enjoy this months offering of people, places and parties: its one of the biggest yet!
