Another Brilliant Ralph Lauren Move + Something Special for the Guys

Hello and aren’t we happy-happy-happy it is Friday? Anyone headed toward water this weekend? Finally off to the cottage for the rest of the summer? We hope so! And fie on those retailers touting Back to School and End of Summer Sales, not to mention the Sale to End All Sales plus the Our Sale is Better than Your Sale Sale!

Although… The Princess does recognize her role in perpetuating those very promotions somewhat with her continual harping about said sales. Please consider this our formal apology for past actions and a foreshadowing of future behavior. Because we *so* heart your pocketbook (that is how one says it, yes?) we will continue sharing that sale information.

We do have a thought from Polo Ralph Lauren for those desperate-for-an-activity-days Nanny often encounters whilst at the cottage with the children; we’ll get there in a minute. But first an update on the Polo Ralph Lauren Olympic Games Collection. If you’ll recall from our earlier post on this group, there was a tone of disappointment at the lack of merchandise for Girls. As expected, that situation has been rectified with several more items in the Girls Olympic Games Collection.

New to the line are the Olympic Games Fleece Pullover in white in Sizes 7-16;

along with the Olympic Games Ringer Tee in Sizes 2-6x;

and the Olympic Games Hoodie available in Sizes 2-6x and 7-14. Frankly, TP expects even more Girls merchandise before the end of the Games, but we could be wrong.

Now on to what The Princess referred to as a ‘brilliant move’ in the title to this post: the Ralph Lauren Paint Your Own Polo Kit. It’s best to go with the PLR description on this one:

Let your child express her individuality and style with our new Paint Your Own Polo. With a variety of paints, brushes and stamps, the mesh polo shirt inside our signature Ralph Lauren paint can truly become your child’s own.

Now, how smart is this? These are non-toxic paints, the shirt is going to be machine-washable, ultimately Mom and Dad are going to have a lovely memento of Bitsy and Drake’s budding artistic skills, and best of all, this one is for charity! All of the proceeds go to the Pink Pony Fund for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s Pediatric Art Therapy Program. Of course there is also a kit for the young man in the family.

And since we seem to be covering all things Ralph Lauren today, a reminder that the Black Watch polo team Ralph Lauren sponsors plays this weekend at the opening of the Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge Cup in Bridgehampton.

One more find before we dash – Espadrilles, etc.

One reason we love these folks is their broad selection for men. We think you will like their style.


Do have a splendid weekend.

    Loving that Navy hoodie. The paint-your-own is cute, does the paint come out of your Berber though? I’d rather pay a CSR from RL to paint the polo! LOL

  6. LOVE the first fleece pullover w/chinese characters. and the paint your own, BRILLS! also, great picks for the mens espadrilles, must admit i’d like the woman’s more if that wedge was higher, but you know me!
