Gift Idea: Pantherella Cashemere Socks

Looking for a great stocking stuffer or a fun (but luxurious) present that won’t break the bank this holiday season? Pantherella socks are the ultimate in cozy comfort and outstanding quality.

Hitchcock Madrona started carrying Pantherella this fall and we love the styles and colors they come in. A British brand dedicated to manufacturing products that are both stylish and practical (like Barbour!), Pantherella has been producing exceptionally well-made goods out of its factory in Leicester, England for close to seventy years. It’s all about the details with these socks; each one has a hand-linked toe seam and a reinforced heel to ensure longevity. They are crafted from a relatively thin (but durable) material to minimize bulk. The company uses only the finest yarns and employs the latest in sock-producing technology so that Pantherella wearers can be sure their socks will stand the test of time and remain in great condition for years to come.

Fall 2012 Launch Party 11.15


Officially Fall Outfit of the Day: Claire’s Return

Fall is in full swing around Hitchcock Madrona and we have all the cold weather gear you need from head to toe. Literally, we are selling hats, sweaters, coats, and socks. This season has been fun broadening our boutique’s offerings. We are so accustomed to selling jewelry that I get a big rush when we sell a pair of socks. Speaking of socks, we have some awesomely cozy and fabulous (of course) socks from Pantherella (England).  I am into the over-the-knee style and will figure out how to wear them asap. Blog post to come!

As you can see, I bribed Claire into another photo shoot. She even agreed to wear lipstick – I will turn her into a diva in no time!

Cashmere sweater by Hitchcock Madrona. Copper, brass and semi-precious stone necklaces by Xenia Mara (layered).  Hailwood coat by Barbour International.

Have I expressed my utter devotion to these short Barbour boots??!  Seriously, there is no reason why you should not own a pair.  Utilitarian Seattle chic. No brainer! I love them because they are a bit unexpected (not Hunter) and they are so light and easy to wear!  I get sore ankles when I wear the big, heavy, tall Wellies.  These are perfect to slip on and run out the door.

“Organic bling” of this druzy quartz ring by Hitchcock Madrona is perfect with the casual/outdoor style of the outfit.

We have sizes 7-9 in the short boots (all black).  They are running a bit big but I actually like that so that I can wear a wool sock comfortably.

How cool are these socks from Patherella?  Maroon, pink and cream. Perfection. I wore these with clunky platform heals and a jean skirt the other day.

Today was the first day of the season that I turned the heat on in the shop. Milestone!  Come visit and update your sock drawer!  I am sure it needs it – mine does!

XOXO
