We get a lot of questions. Here’s a list of the ones we hear a lot. If you don’t see yours here, no problem – contact us here and shoot us an email.
What is Fellow Flowers?
We are the virtual sisterhood for women who move, run and live active lifestyles.
We support, inspire and bring together women who are on a training, fitness, health or running journey. We connect active women who want more than just training plans, mileage updates and race reports. We have created a community where women are empowered and encouraged to share their stories, reasons for getting out there and motivations for staying active and healthy.
So what’s with the flower?
Our flower isn’t just a fashion statement – it’s an unmistakable symbol of connection that gets to the heart of why you run. Every color represents a different reason why women are out there running, moving and getting it done. By wearing one, you honor your journey and unite with thousands of other women celebrating theirs.
How do I become a Fellow Flower?
We encourage every woman to become part of our community in a way that feels comfortable and meaningful for her. If you are a woman on a running or fitness journey and find our messages, quotes and stories to be inspiring, sometimes that is all you need! Take it one step further by wearing one of our signature flowers, which allows you to honor your journey and allows you to connect with other women instantly.
Is there a membership?
Yes! If you’re looking for even more connection, we encourage you to join our #FFCrew membership. Hundreds of women from all over the country (and world) are part of this growing virtual sisterhood for women who run. If you are looking for a fierce virtual community of strong women who are chasing goals and supporting each other, this is it. Learn more about joining our FFCrew membership here.
Is there an age requirement to be a Fellow Flower?
Nope. Flowers in Training and Late Bloomers are welcome. Always.
Do you have your own Fellow Flowers races or events that I can participate in?
We currently do not have a running series, but we have strong partnerships with women’s races throughout the country and also host Rock Retreat Run, an annual retreat in partnership with Women’s Running Magazine, once per year. This is an unforgettable weekend experience for women who run. Learn more about it here.
I just placed an order – when should I expect it to arrive?
It depends! We process every order ourselves and do our best to get them out quickly. All apparel is custom printed in-house by 608 Threads and we often print in batches to increase efficiency. All packages are shipped via USPS first-class mail and should be shipped out within 7-10 business days from the time of purchase. Exceptions include pre-orders and special ‘limited time’ purchase windows. We place orders after these windows have closed, thus your items will ship 7-10 business days from the end of this order window, not your specific date of purchase. Also, we cannot rush or overnight packages so plan ahead and order early!
There is something wrong with my order – who should I contact to get it fixed?
Contact us directly and let us know the issue. We’ll do our best to square it away quickly. Please allow 48 hours for a response, keeping in mind our business hours of 8 am to 4 pm, Monday – Friday. Also, because our inventory is constantly changing, we have a strict 30-day return/exchange policy. This means, from the date of purchase (online or expo) you have 30 days to return or exchange the item you purchased. No exceptions. If the item was a gift, please let us know who purchased the gift for you, so that we can process it accurately for an exchange.
I’m running for a great cause in my upcoming race – can Fellow Flowers donate anything toward my efforts?
We get several requests each month from amazing women, all with worthy causes, fundraising efforts and donation needs. At this time, we are not able to donate money toward individual race and fundraising efforts. That said, we will always consider providing individual or team discounts on our flowers and merchandise that will directly help your fundraising efforts.
Can I sell your products in my store? And do you offer any items at wholesale prices?
Currently we do not offer wholesale pricing or opportunities for retailers.
I’d like to license the Fellow Flowers messages and words for my products, is this possible?
We would need to know more about your business to answer this. Contact us with your business opportunity.
I don’t see my favorite color. Can you make me a custom flower?
We’re sorry, no, we cannot. We’ve come to honor the process of how our flower colors are chosen and the words are written. Truthfully, the meanings speak to us when they’re ready – it sounds funny, but that is how all of them have been created. We’re really careful not to veer from this process – so far it’s worked pretty well. That said – we LOVE hearing your ideas. Throw ’em out there. It might just be the creative spark and inspiration we need.
Are you guys based in the Midwest? Will you come to my neck of the woods anytime soon?
We are a company dedicated to inspiring and connecting with women all over the country. You can view our events calendar to see all of our upcoming races and expos – we’re doing our best to reach various parts of the country this year. If you don’t see a race near you, let us know – we’re always interested in hearing about great opportunities. Most importantly, we don’t actually have to be at the race for YOU to be there as a Fellow Flower. Represent girl! Get your flower, inspire your friends and get a crew signed up! Who knows – if you start gathering a small army of Flowers for your race, we just might have to show up!
I’m a dude, but I’m digging what’s happening here. And I want to support some rock star women I know – will alarms sound if I wear some flower gear?
We love when our Flower Fellas get out and support the amazing women in their lives! Very often, it’s men who purchase a flower for their wife, sister, daughter or friend as a gift – letting those women know they are supporting their journey. We also have some awesome friends who just want to support the purpose behind Fellow Flowers – there is no alarm that will sound off for that, ever.
I’d love to buy a ton of flowers for my (insert group name, organization, cause-related race team here.) Do you have special offers for large groups?
Good question. Depending on group size, this may be a possibility, but no guarantees. When you email us, please include your organization or group, how many flowers you’ll need, if you have specific dates for an event and also why you are interested in Fellow Flowers. From there, we’ll get in touch. You start the convo by emailing us here.
I’ll be wearing my flower for an upcoming race, is there anything special I should be doing pre or post race?
Hydrate. Go to the bathroom. Stretch. Wear your chip. Ha. Just kidding.
We’d love for you to share your photo from race day. If you post race day pics on Facebook, tag us using #fellowflowers and #flowermiles. We don’t want to miss the party!
I’m looking for a group of women to run with – can Fellow Flowers help me find some runners in my area?
Our goal is to connect women who run – online and on the pavement. The best way to connect with other women from around the country is to join our membership community! The #FFCrew is made up of hundreds of women from all over the country. These ladies organize runs and meet-ups often and coordinate photo ops before races. Learn more about joining the crew here.
Do I have to be a runner to wear a flower?
No. No. No! It’s a question we get a lot, and we answer it the same every time. “Run, walk, cartwheel, tuck-n-roll – it doesn’t matter.” We just want women to be on the move – going from one place to another. Maybe it’s a physical journey like signing up for a race, starting to walk with friends or getting to the gym once a week. Or, perhaps it’s a journey of a different kind. Self-realization, empowerment, strength, courage, finding your passion. The journey of a flower has no parameters, rules or restrictions. It’s all up to you.
How do I wear the flower?
Great question. First, it’s not limited to a ponytail. Here’s a short list of how we’ve seen it worn:
In a ponytail – big, small, short, long – all sizes
Tucked in a visor or hat
Snugged into a headband or barrette
Clipped to a race bib
Clipped to a race tank or sleeve
Woven into shoelaces
Snugged into running belts
And after race day, the flowers look great hanging near your bathroom mirror, in your office, in your car…anywhere you need a little inspiration.
And the list goes on and on…
My organization is interested in partnering with Fellow Flowers for an upcoming race/community event? Is this something you guys do?
We’re always interested in partnering with community causes. Shoot us an email.
