Luck O’ the Irish… / by Granville Street

Just in time for St. Patty’s day I’ve decided to search Granville Street for everything green so when March 17th rolls around, you’ll be ready to get your Irish on and maybe get lucky.

American Apparel (872 Granville Street) has tons of clothes in varying degrees of green (some a little TOO green like the fluorescent lime color I spotted), but here are some possible choices:

The “Le Sac” Dress: obviously just a “sac” of material but it’s versatile and you can switch it up for cool styles like this strapless dress in evergreen:



Or, take a look at their cotton jersey bandeau pencil dress:



And, if you aren’t a big dress person consider pulling it up and wearing it as a top. This might be a good idea considering it doesn’t look too long - you don't want to be flashing anyone your Britney on St. Patty's day. For more choices and inspiration stop by the store.

Check out Urban Outfitters (830 Granville Street). You might have to hunt a bit harder for something green but you're bound to get something a bit different - not just a plain tank or shirt.

Save some green bucks to spend on green beer...

Claire’s (762 Granville Street) for some flashy and/or tacky green jewelry & accessories. Right now they’re having a sale, 20-50% off, and if you’re a last minute kind of gal stop by on St. Patrick’s day – the entire stock is buy 1 get 1 50% off.

H&M (609 Granville Street) - Britain’s favorite store and now Vancouver’s too… Again, you can pick up some cheap accessories to green up your outfit come this St. Patty’s day.

Winners (798 Granville) – you need to be a serious bargain hunter to find cute stuff amid the frumpy, old lady stuff there but it is possible. I usually just bypass the clothes and head straight for the bags and shoes section. It's a bargain hunter's paradise, no?
