Holiday Gift Guide: Pretty in Pink

Holiday Gift Guide: Pretty in Pink

For years, I resisted the overwhelming insistence from designers, representatives and other lingerie stores that Lille should carry a wide variety of pink and red options, particularly around Christmas and Valentine’s Day. I just felt that the Mall had that area covered, and I was much more interested in seeking out underpinnings in unusual colors like chartreuse, cobalt or persimmon, rather than maintain the status quo with the styles that were expected of me.  It definitely got to the point where I would reject some pretty amazing pieces, simply because of my dogmatic rule about not being like every other panty shop on the block.  But this season, I really came around on the issue, in part because we now carry more merchandise than ever before, so we can afford to include anything that strikes my fancy, but more due to the fact that designers featured a ton of gorgeous shades of pink and red that veer nowhere near the 80’s rouge/bubblegum spectrum. There are tons of better options: oxblood, wine, bordeaux, french rose, frosted nude, and the like—all of which are as trendy as any of the boldly hued “fashion color” pieces in the shop. So if your holiday shopping list includes lingerie for a vivacious vixen in lipstick red or something frilly for that girly-girl who loves pink, then look no further than the following options:
