If you are looking for alternatives to the usual green shirt to show your Irish (and chic!) spirit on St. Patrick’s Day, try these two Lindsay Phillips accessories.
The Davenport Tote in Kelly green coated canvas with a houndstooth print measures 14″L x 6″W x 11″H and has a contrasting turquoise wide zipper and an inside pocket. A gold medallion in the front gives it cachet.
Match it with the pleated ruffle Newberry Green Stretch Scarf in oversized houndstooth print. You couldn’t combine Irish and polished any better. Both are available at http://www.Lindsay-Phillips.com
While you sport your tote and scarf around town, stop by the CREED boutique for a complimentary spritz and sample of CREED Green Irish Tweed, the famed blend of violet leaf, verbena and sandalwood in the black bottle that evokes a Savile Row tuxedo jacket. Green Irish Tweed is one of the most legendary creations of master perfumer Olivier CREED.
A discreet way of showing your Irish spirit to a man in your life. 794 Madison Avenue at 67th Street
Though green becomes redheads particularly well, it is a vibrant and healthy hue that smells of spring and of nature and that enthuses everyone it touches with life. In this last drab stretch of winter, we can all look forward to a great day of Irish cheer.
