Good luck green

The sun came out this week just in time for spring. It may take a bit for us to spot some green under the snow, but we can't help but count our evergreen blessings. Everyone thinks of leprechauns and beer this time of year, but we think the Irish were onto something by taking time to remember how lucky we are to be surrounded by green.

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way -
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

Text: Lucky adjective Having or marked by good luck; fortunate

That part at the end really sticks with us. Luck is one thing, but we sure do feel fortunate. To help share our good fortune, we've rounded up our green goodies and marked them all down 20% OFF in-store, so you can join in the celebration (and technically avoid a pinch...but don't be that person).

With evergreen trees to inspire us year-round, plus plenty of leafy greens in the summer, we have a few Tahoe U Originals that fit the festive bill. One of our most popular tees, the Hangover Club, will also come in handy when you have to go into work on Monday after celebrating.

Now if you're not interested in going full sequins, beads, and holiday flare, we have plenty of more subtle shades to incorporate into your personal style. Plus, you'll be able to wear these cute pieces year-round. Sage green works as a great neutral to change up your wardrobe and transition into spring.

Green is also a great color for the outdoorsman itching to get out and explore. And accessories are a great way to incorporate a pop of color without looking like the Jolly Green Giant. For celebratory purposes, an excellent precursor to the Hangover tee is the Bourbon and Bad Decisions Original.

Going green doesn't have to stop at wearables. All this talk of blessings has us in a generous mood ourselves, so why not pay it forward with green giftables? From gardening, the green that keeps giving, to soap, keychains and more there's a token for any lucky loved one in your life.


Green home goods and interior design items at Tahoe University boutique and design services

If we're going to wear green and give green, let's go ahead and live green. Of course, that includes recycling, composting etc. but we're talking about one of the hottest interior design trends of going green with your decor. From emeralds, celadons and chartreuses, there's a fresh hue for every home.

Once you get your green quota covered, there's no need to go chasing down a rainbow for the pot of gold (and copper and silver and YES you can mix metals!) We've got enough twinkly trinkets to make a leprechaun jealous. 
Tahoe University Owner Erin Wilkinson
As luck would have it, we *also* celebrate a special lass on St. Patrick's Day. It's the birthday of our co-owner and fearless female, Erin Wilkinson. Erin go Bragh!
We'd be remiss if we didn't circle back to the theme of the Irish Blessing. We are so fortunate that as luck would have it, we get to do what we love doing and live in such a beautiful place. Not an Irishman but a favorite of every nature lover, Robert Frost, reminds us some blessings are brief which is all the more reason to cherish them.

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

We hope to see you this weekend to enjoy 20% OFF in-store on all green items. Sláinte
