Preppy Sales & Cartier Polo

Hello-Hello!

As general mayhem continues here at the Prepatorium we remain grateful for our sunny summer skies, while harboring hopes our preppy pals in Texas and California receive some desperately needed rain.

We begin with a few reminders in our Sales and Savings category, beginning with one that is new to us, compliments of a brilliant blogging friend, Preppy in New England. Gaze upon the remarkable Lobsterland Collection at Stonewall Kitchen.

From fabulosities like the bucket seen above to the mugs below, the entire collection is now on sale.

Additionally, Brooks Brothers, J. Crew, Talbots, Tory Burch and a host of other preppish stores continue with their sales/promotions/clearance/discounts/etc.

In our “Recent Activities of the Royalty” category we share a few pictures from Cartier International Polo Day 2009 at Guards Polo Club this past Sunday. First, HRH, Prince Charles in the royal box.

We thought the Prince was having a rather good tie day.

The event is a highlight of the social season; our next photo features Chloe Delevigne and Alexander Spencer Churchill.

Apparently Leonardo DiCaprio was in attendance as well, accompanying ‘Pussycat Doll’ Ashley Roberts. (Rumor has it the handsome actor is now dating Ms. Roberts. Gasp.)

For those interested in the sporting event being held on the field, Argentina ultimately bested the English team, 12-5.

One of the many cultural phenomenon with which we are not familiar is the wildly popular Twilight film and book series. Because we know some Princess readers do enjoy the dramas, we thought it a good idea to share the news that Nordstrom will be selling a line of clothing inspired by Twilight.

The new line from the retailer will also offer jewelry.

This story provides more detail on the merchandise:

“T-shirts, tank tops and sweatshirts with logos including “Team Edward” (a vampire in the series), “Team Jacob” (a werewolf in the series), and “Forks High School Phys. Ed. Dept.” The store will also sell “I Love Edward” and “I Love Jacob” necklaces and pendants.”

The collection will be available online October 1, but to see it in person at stores one will have to wait until October 15.  The newest Twilight film (New Moon) opens nationally November 20.

Are we the only walking, talking human left who hasn’t yet partaken of Twilight in any format?  Do tell, we’re simply dying to know.

With that it is sayonara for today, we’re off for our stint at the Senior Center!

  1. Oh no! Not excited about the Twilight collection.

    The Prince of Wales IS looking far more dapper than usual in that shot. The middle-aged sag which bedevils many of us seems to have added to his royal look. How unfair is that?

    I am one that loves Twilight and that is so neat that they are making clothing, however, I highly doubt I would every sport a twilight tee, it is a very neat concept!

    Well I guess if your name is Churchill you can wear any shoes you want!
