April Showers

April Showers

This past weekend of glorious sun was another head fake.  We were so duped that spring had sprung, we went to our son’s lacrosse game in open-toe sandals and a t-shirt, and proceeded to get dumped on by our famous rain. Lucky for us, designer Hillary Day from the Pacific Northwest designs the most fashionable rainwear made from impenetrable Swiss fabric; it keeps us bone dry and looking great on the field or out on the town.  Stock up on her selection of gorgeous rainwear during her April Showers sale and receive 15% off.

What: Hillary Day April Showers Sale
When:  Today, April 27 – May 4
