Tides of Anacortes - Torben Mann
Tides of Anacortes is your destination for women’s clothing and shoes to fit the Island Lifestyle of the Pacific Northwest. Located in the Historic Wilson Hotel building downtown Anacortes. At Tides you will find clothes for every part of island living, fashion that translates from outdoor chic to easy elegance. Tides of Anacortes is the vision of owners Toben and Jennifer Mann set out to create a shop for women to find clothes and shoes for their active lifestyles that are both comfortable and make one feel beautiful. “For me, naming the store ‘Tides’ was a huge metaphor for how life is always changing, moving, how the tides come and go,” Jennifer said. At Tides you’ll find clothes for every part of island living, fashion that translates from outdoor chic to easy elegance. We have curated a wide variety of lines of stylish outdoor and lifestyle wear, as well as a collection of home decor and locally made artisan goods that any woman could appreciate. “I wanted to make a store that I hope the locals love, and the tourists talk about,” she said. “I wanted to make a store where women found beautiful things that they loved and just like the tides, it will change with what the town is looking for and needing.” An islander for more than a decade, Jennifer Mann has worked for some amazing companies. “I sold glue,” she loves to joke, with much of her previous business experience running global sales and marketing in the high-tech adhesives industry. But traveling for work meant that she spent much of her time on the road. And a love for these islands its waters were calling her and her husband, Torben, to spend more at home. “I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world,” she said, “and there’s no place in the world I’d rather be than home.” A lover of fashion, the outdoors, and simple joys of everyday living, Jenn was ready to embark on a new journey, to change careers and embark on something new. A Nordic Tug boater, wife, mother of two, and woman on the go, Jenn loves helping other women that they don’t have to compromise style, function, or ease. Tides is the culmination of her years of business experience, her affection for beautiful things, her love of island life and the encouragement of amazing friends and family to pursue a dream!
