No, I’m not talking about the town in Wisconsin, but instead how the color green is the symbol of spring that we all recognize and appreciate. But, how many of us appreciate this color as a fashion statement? Green is tricky for a lot of people to wear. But let’s break down the components of that shade just a bit. Blue + Yellow = Green. When looking at items for your wardrobe, green doesn’t have to mean bright Leprechaun color, unless that’s what you’re drawn to. In reality there is quite a spectrum of shades in the green family that can be very user friendly—from pastel-bluish green, to yellow- green and, of course lots of other variations.

That simple question can be answered easily. Floral prints! Sound familiar? It should, because the natural beauty of flowers has always been a mainstay in fashion and art since time began. People still marvel at Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” or the impressionistic flora and fauna of Renoir. So is it any wonder that the fabrics created to emulate the varieties and colorations of posies are revisited again and again in the world of fashion design? From the cotton floral calico prints of the pioneer women, to the avant garde pop abstractions of the '60’s, the flower has ultimate staying power.
Being a small part of a giving community is one of the wonderful things I like about being involved with Goodwill throughout the years. One of our biggest supporters and promotional partners here in Southeastern Wisconsin is the Bon-Ton Stores. Their corporate offices are located in downtown Milwaukee, and they are the parent company for Younkers, Boston Store and Carson Pirie Scott. In conjunction with Goodwill, they help promote donations at their stores during the Goodwill Sale.
