Whether you celebrate or not, it’s safe to say that no one can avoid the color green on St. Paddy’s Day. As our heads spin in swirls of kelly, hunter, and emerald, it got us feeling a little green. So rather than fight it, we rolled with it and collected images of things available for consumption – the good, the dyed and the retro – in fifty shades of green.

    If we are going for the GREEN, then I say go for the emeralds!!!! What better way to say “Go Green” then with those beautiful gems!!! My second is the margaritas!!! Here’s a beautiful thought – wear emeralds while sipping margaritas. Can we make this a new tradition for St. Patrick’s Day?
