Can you believe the holidays are in full swing again?! Every year about this time I promise myself that I’ll have it much more together next year and I won’t let Christmas shopping sneak up on me again. I envision myself shopping throughout the year, picking up special, thoughtful gifts as I discover them. Come December, friends will ask if I want to go shopping and I’ll smugly reply, “Oh I finished my shopping ages ago! It’s all wrapped and hidden away in my bedroom closet.”
I suppose we can all have our fantasies. You’d think I’d be an accomplished shopper because, after all, I’m a visual merchandiser for Hanky Panky. This means I’m in some of the world’s greatest stores on a daily basis. But I seem to only have eyes for Hanky Panky.
It’s hard to look beyond Hanky Panky to be quite honest. At the very least, I should be looking at our styles as fabulous gifts instead of envisioning all of it for myself. But it’s hard not to want everything we manufacture! Especially now since the new holiday-inspired styles are incredibly sexy.
We have a Nordstrom exclusive red and white bralette with a matching cheeky hipster that is adorable beyond belief. The red and white is perfect for Christmas-inspired sexiness and there are other color combinations for year-round fun.
To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the 4811 original rise thong, Hanky Panky has put out a limited edition metallic thong and long sleeve top. They are available in silver and in black. They are so beautiful on—they look more like jewelry than lace. I’m seriously obsessed with these metallics, especially the silver. I suggest that you all get them for your best friends and for yourselves because they are truly special and the look of them is timeless, just like true friendship.
All this talk about the holiday season reminds me of a cute story I was told while doing a merchandising visit at the Neiman Marcus in Bellevue, Washington…
The Bellevue Neiman’s is something to behold. It’s in a small outdoor mall that’s attached to a luxury high rise condominium complex. The Mall is called The Shops at The Bravern. If you find yourself in Bellevue, don’t miss this jewel of a mall. It’s one of my favorites to work at. So, one day I was at this Neiman’s merchandising the Hanky Panky area, when a lady came up to me and asked me if I wanted to hear a cute, true story about Hanky Panky. I said, “of course!” So, this is what she told me….
Last year for New Year’s Eve she and a group of her girlfriends went to Las Vegas for a super exciting blow-out party experience. Before they were about to get showered and ready for their big night out, their hostess, who coordinated the trip, gave each one of them a present. They were all thrilled when they opened their presents because they had each been given a red Hanky Panky thong! The hostess told them that if they all wore their new red Hanky Panky thongs, they’d each find love either on that night or very soon. Of course, they all wore their Hanky Panky thongs that evening!
I asked the lady telling me the story if she found love that night. She beamed at me and said, “Yes, that’s why I’m here today, to buy some Hanky Panky lingerie for my upcoming wedding night and Honeymoon!”
Wow! I asked how the rest of her friends made out that night, and she told me that over the course of the last year, they had all found love. Behold, the power of Hanky Panky! So get out there, single ladies and get your red Hanky Panky thong for this New Year’s Eve!
