Last Thursday, we had the honor of being the receiving non-profit for the podunk Vineyard Vines grand opening fete. Thanks to the owners and staff of Vineyard Vines, and all the VIP shoppers who assured we got a significant check for one evening’s… socializing and shopping. I bought a Vineyard Vines tote when the League sold them as a fundraiser a few years ago, and it looks almost new despite basically daily use, filled to the zippered top with boring League papers, yearbooks, cocktail napkins and the trusty gavel. I confess… that was the extent of my VV awareness.
I’m all in. Their dock to town style suits my new work environment nicely. This being very casual thing is getting easier every day. I enjoy supporting the local businesses that support the League and/or the fire/rescue responders, but I’m a little shocked at how quickly I’ve fallen for the company with the pink whale.
If Vineyard Vines is new to you, think LL Bean meets Lilly P. Lots of tees and ballcaps, and yes, I have one of each and the Knight has a tee too. (I’m pretty sure he won’t wear a navy cap with a pale pink whale on the front, but for all the things we share… caps are PERSONAL, and I’m glad.) If the tote is any indication, someone needs to declare herself the heir to my VV clothing because it will outlast me.
Now, if it will just cool off again so I can wear my pretty new sweater.
What’s new in your closet/town/life?
