TOMS retailer: Tyler’s on the Drag [www.tylersaustin.com]
Location: Austin, Texas
MO: Tyler’s is a lifestyle and athletic store based in the heart of downtown/UT, Austin. Down there in the Longhorn territory, they say that if it’s cool, Tyler’s sells it, which makes us happy because Tyler’s sells TOMS!
Cool mix of sweet and rough. Silly but a little serious. Leather jackets and soft waves. And a total rocker babe. That’s Nikki Lane - a talented musician and the perfect chick to bring out the personality of the new TOMS Eyewear Memphis frame.

Teaching teachers about vision
With the support of TOMS Eyewear and our lead Sight Giving Partner, Seva Foundation, the Lumbini Eye Institute in Nepal has been showing local teachers how to screen for potential eye issues. Often educators are the first to notice vision problems when kids have difficulty seeing the blackboard. Now, nearly 200 teachers can properly diagnosis visual impairments and refer a child to a local eye center for treatment — as part of Lumbini’s efforts to create long-term, self-sustaining treatment programs.
