Cyber Wednesday Sale at the Preppy Princess & Giveaway Update

It’s Cyber Wednesday at The Preppy Princess!


Hello everyone — we must be brief as we are helping the Consort with orders at The Preppy Princess during our big Cyber Wednesday Sale! The sale gives you 20% off the entire site!

That means 20% off our Preppy Placemat™ collections, like these holiday placemats accented with our favorite grosgrain ribbon from the Christmas Candy Cane line:

Or our Holiday Snowman placemats.  These are all reversible so you get the value of two looks for the price of one, they are Made in the USA of 100% cotton, and they go in the washing machine and dryer! (Many consider this to be the best attribute, no dry cleaning for these upscale linens!)

Of course you want to have matching napkins, also reversible in 100% cotton, Made in the USA and washing machine friendly. The solid red and green is a tad more sedate, but our preference is the whimsical red/greenstripe with a solid red or green on the other side. (You get to choose the reverse side color.)



Knowing how much most preps love their flip-flops *and* their grosgrain ribbon, the Sale offers a wonderful opportunity to buy yourself a pair, or perhaps a ribbon belt as a gift …?

Maybe a collar for the Preppy Pooch in your world, done in that same great preppy ribbon:

Also an outstanding gift, the personalized Note Paper and Clipboard from Whitney English.


TSU (The Spousal Unit) is rather fond of the Blue Madras set for a certain nephew.

The Sale runs through midnight tonight, and there is no need for a promotional code or other information; the savings are automatically deducted at checkout.

Also, the Great Giveaway continues, with our next drawing scheduled for next Wednesday morning, the 10th. The prize package includes the Princess’s exclusive Have a Whale of a Holiday boxed note card set.

And we also include a tote from the frequently tough to find Bungalow Scout line. The winner receives the always-better-than-a-plastic-bag Black Baguette tote, ideal for trips to the market because it is so roomy inside.

To enter just leave a comment with a wish for the holidays. That’s it! Simply leave a comment with one wish and you’re in!

TPC (The Princess Consort) is giving us what is generally referred to as the “death stare” here at the Palace, so I’d best toddle on over to order fullfillment and get busy or he may take away my tiara! Oh No!

The Preppy Placemat™ (or “Fair Warning”)

No doubt you have experienced the excitement of an auction at Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Doyle, or other fine establishments. (BTW, do peek below for a great Doyle tidbit.) At auction houses “Fair Warning” is a signal advising that if you really want that strand of Mikimoto pearls for Bitsy’s wedding in June, you’d better bid. Like now. Well, that’s sort of what The Princess is saying. Consider this today’s Fair Warning: we’re absolutely gaga over the new Preppy Placemat™ and probably in danger of displaying an inappropriate emotional response in our excitement!

We are way over the top in elation the place mats finally arrived; we’re also jazzed at how cool they turned out! Yes! Today’s pictures are from the Make Mine Madras and Tradition stripe collections.

Preppy Placemat™ Tradition Fancy Stripes & Little Flowers


These truly make a fab style statement while also displaying a split personality that everyone will appreciate – they are reversible! So they dress up both your dining room and kitchen tables, stretching your decorating dollar a bit more. (And really, aren’t we all positioned to consider little economies here and there when we stumble over them?) Naturellement, the placemats are 100% cotton and the madras is a Princess exclusive: the fabric was made especially for us in India, it is a pattern you won’t see anywhere else. There are others in the collection as well as matching and coordinating napkins. We will showcase some of the them in the next few days, but simply had to get these two up right away to share with you as we consider them to be very Princess and most Prepalicious! BTW, we were so troubled by confusion over the correct spelling of the place mat word we actually consulted Webster’s online dictionary only to learn both spellings are acceptable.
Ooops, almost forgot our Doyle update! They have the most divine jewelry auction scheduled for the 15th with pieces by Harry Winston, Tiffany’s, and Cartier. If you aren’t in the city on the 15th, not to worry: you can always bid by internet or phone. Time to fly, a League meeting awaits!
