We think gift certificates get a bad rap. Sure, they can mean that you weren’t sure what to get someone, or that you waited until the last minute to do your shopping. But a gift certificate to someone’s favorite store (Petrune, obviously) also means you think they have such exquisite taste that you wouldn’t dare tell them what to wear. It’s an invitation to get that glorious dress, or coat, or pair of boots, that’s just a little too extravagant. And perhaps most importantly, it’s a guarantee that this year, one gift, at least, will be exactly what they want.
Through Friday this week (December 20th, 2013) we are having a sale on Gift Certificates redeemable after Christmas! 25% off all values of Petrune Gift Certificates! For example a $100 gift certificate for that special someone will only cost you $75! There is no better time to give the gift of classic clothing!
Kids might be excited by an oversized present under the tree—maybe it’s a build-your-own-Death-Star kit, or one of those creepy three-foot-tall Barbies—but adults know that the best gifts come in small boxes. Supple, brightly-colored leather goods from ILI are no exception. We love this brand year-round, but there’s no better occasion than the holidays to snap up an ILI wallet. With a variety of styles ranging from a compact cardholder to an elegant pocketbook, a passport cover, and a zip coin purse, ILI has something that will please any leather-lover on your list. What’s more, wallets and pocketbooks come in festive red-and-gold or black-and-gold boxes, making gifting them even easier.
In addition to wallets, we are happy to carry ILI leather gloves in sizes Small through XL and in three shades—bright red, burgundy, and black. Nothing combines chic and warmth quite like leather gloves! We also have a few purses, in case you fall in love with ILI leather and want to size up!
Happy gifting, and stay tuned for more holiday gift guides from Petrune!
Cyber Monday may have come and gone, but you don’t have to give up on holiday shopping without leaving your chair—yes, even for vintage clothes!
There are two ways to shop Petrune online: our Etsy shop features vintage items that are particularly delicate, high quality, and/or one-of-a-kind. And our Petrunia shop lets you peruse the offerings from all four collections of our own vintage-inspired clothing line. We ship from both sites at very reasonable rates, so there’s no reason to leave the far-flung vintage lovers in your life out in the cold! (And of course, if you’re local, you can come into the store and ask to see anything you’ve spotted online.)
Here’s a quick side-by-side sampling of some of the pieces on offer.
First, two beautiful faux leopard coats, one from the 50s, the other 60s-inspired:
Second, two full-skirted party dresses in iridescent blue, one classically feminine, the other with modern, flirty touches of black:
Can you guess which are new and which are Petrunia? (Probably; luckily that’s not the point.) Happy shopping, and stay tuned for more gift guides! If you missed the two previous installments, check them out here and here.
