Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by Going Green in These Lucky Styles

When you think of St. Patrick’s Day, what comes to mind? Living in the U.S., people can tend to stereotype – with pinches, parades, and pitchers of green beer. However, as March 17th fast approaches, we think it’s important to honor Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day traditions. And yes, one of those traditions does include wearing green (but not for the reason you think). Keep scrolling for fun facts about Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day, and the looks you need to celebrate in style.

Emerald Isle Style

Coined by the poet William Drennan in his poem, “When Erin First Rose,” Ireland’s nickname, The Emerald Isle, is a reference to its rolling green hills and lush landscape. To match with the Irish countryside, we’re (sham)rocking the shade of the Isle in style. Shop the cardi, sweater dress, and mini dress.

Charmed, We’re Sure

Believe it or not, the official color of St. Patrick’s Day wasn’t always green. It was blue! Green only became the go-to color after the 1798 Irish Rebellion, as a means to differentiate against the British wearing red. As you can see, green’s more our color anyway, especially when paired with an eye-catching print. Shop the skirt, jumpsuit, and shamrock tee.

Lucky Dresses

As luck would have it, Saint Patrick actually wasn’t Irish (!?) and his name wasn’t Patrick (double !?). He was, however, considered the informal patron saint of Ireland, because of his work in bringing Christianity to Ireland. He purportedly passed on March 17, and we’ve been celebrating his legacy ever since. Shop the floral dress, swing dress, and wrap dress.
