With the excitement of Spring Break upon us, it can be easy to forget that the greatest holiday of the year is fast approaching, too. That’s right, Stags, St. Patrick’s Day trumps Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and everything else, for one simple reason. You don’t have to buy anything, you don’t have to spend time with family you don’t really like, and you don’t have to feel bad about being single—you just have to drink (if you want to, that is).
Of course, there is one slight obligation: If you don’t wear green on March 17th, you might find yourself getting a number of painful pinches, per tradition. To save yourself the discomfort and to add to the fun, here are some places you can get some excellent green gear. So pour yourself a Guinness, and get that credit card ready.
Lookhuman.com is the perfect spot for clever shirts, available in everything from tank tops to crewnecks. Whether you want to tell the world to kiss you because you’re Irish, or to kiss you just because you’re drunk, Lookhuman is the place to go. For a limited time they’re having a 25% off sale on all St. Paddy’s Day styles, so act fast!
Guinness more than just a delicious beer, but also an iconic Irish brand. Head to guinnesswebstore.com for some great styles that celebrate the joy of beer and Ireland—they’re stylish enough to wear all year!
If you’re like me and still crying because your semester abroad in Galway is over, an authentic Irish Aran sweater is what you need to remind you of those amazing days. Made for the constantly cold and wet Irish climate (but also totally appropriate for this endless winter we seem to be having), these cozy knits are perfect. Blarney.com has a ton of authentic sweaters, and a lot of other Irish gear too. Since it is an American brand, you won’t have to pay extra for international shipping!
Whether you’re spending on March 17th binge drinking your heart out at a local bar, or skipping out on the festivities, channel your inner Irish person that day—Laid back and friendly, but always ready for a fight.
