Hi everyone. I hope you all had a great week. So here begins this years countdown to St. Patrick’s Day. With only 4 weeks to go, this is probably a good time to think about your St. Patty’s Day look. Here in Ireland, an extra layer is essential on March 17 as there can still be a definite nip in the air! There is nothing like a soft merino wool Aran sweater or cardigan to ward off that chill with classic Irish style. It was really tough to choose but here’s my top 5 Aran picks in quintessentially Irish green!
St. Patrick’s Day Sweaters
1. Traditional Mens Aran Sweater
This is a timeless classic and our most popular Aran sweater for him. First worn by Aran Islander fishermen, the classic crew neck never dates. When Hollywood royalty such as Grace Kelly and Steve Mc Queen appeared in Aran sweaters in the 50s and 60s, this humble Irish garment became an iconic style classic. That enduring appeal continues to this day.
2. Hooded Aran Sweater Coat
Our number one best selling piece of Aran knitwear is the perfect keep warm layer for St. Patrick’s day for many reasons. It comes in this super stylish army green, it features exquisite Aran stitch patterns and the Trinity knot zipper gives a final Celtic flourish.
3. Mens Ardmore Shawl Collar Aran Sweater
Next up it’s another one for the guys and one of the most popular pieces from our latest collection. Like the hooded zipper coat it also comes in a stylish army green. It also features diamond, classic cable stitch, traditional wooden football buttons and a super stylish shawl collar. Best of all, it’s exclusive to The Irish Store so you won’t find it anywhere else!
4. Ladies Glenveagh Aran Zip Cardigan
The beauty of the hugely popular Glenveagh Aran cardigan for her is that it combines stunning traditional Aran craft with a thoroughly modern design. It comes with a stylish side zipper fastening and a beautifully crafted Trinity knot zip pull.
5. Blasket Honeycomb Stitch Aran Sweater
My final pick is another classic with versions for him as well as her. A version of this sweater gained worldwide notoriety recently when Chris Evans appeared in one in the film “Knives Out”. It features classic honeycomb stitch in the main body and I just love this shade of green!
Well thanks so much for stopping by and I hope I’ve been able to help you in some small way to choose your St.Patrick’s day look. Order today to ensure your St Patrick’s Day gifts and St Patricks Day sweater arrives in plenty of time for the big day!
The countdown continues next week…..
