St Patrick’s Day – wear green!

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

To most of us St Patrick’s Day includes heading down to the pub and drinking pints of Guinness whilst wearing something green. But there’s a bit more to it than that.

For those who don’t know Saint Patrick’s Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick, this is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated annually on 17th March, the death date of the most commonly-recognised patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick.

This day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, as well as celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations involve public parades, festivals and the wearing of green clothing or shamrocks.

We’re celebrating St Patrick’s Day at Mio HQ today so here’s our selection of fabulous Green Lingerie an Swimwear to go with your green St Paddies Day outfit.

Valentine’s day gifts for her

Wouldn’t it be nice to be treated like royalty or feel like a princess for the day? At Mio Destino we think that every woman needs to be treated like royalty especially on Valentine’s Day. That’s why we have created a section called ‘The Royals’ in our Valentine’s Day Store.

The Royals is filled with regal purples, emerald greens, royal blues, scarlet reds, deep yellows and golds. All these colours are known as royal as only kings, emperors and wealthy families could afford clothing and products in these colours. What made these colours so expensive is the die which was usually made from plants and creatures from exotic countries back in the day.

Now colours are still about expressing yourself but not so much about showing your wealth. At Mio Destino we know that wearing beautiful lingerie gives you confidence and makes you feel good. So why not add a little royalty to your lingerie drawer and feel like a queen every day.

Here’s some of our favourite pieces in our Royals section for Valentine’s Day.
