Merry Christmas!

Can you believe that its almost Christmas! We finished our customer holiday orders and are looking forward to celebrating the holidays with our families - and a couple of days off wont hurt either! But not to worry, we'll be back at work very soon! We have to be, Valentine's Day is coming and before we know it we will be busily embroidering Easter baskets and dresses!
But for now, let's just enjoy the holidays. We have had a truly wonderful year and our business really took off - we weren't always prepared, but we have had so much fun making things for our amazing customers - and we are going to keep on doing it! There is just something so wonderful about being a part of people's gift-giving.
What will 2010 hold for the Preppy In Paradise crew? Possibly a new retail location? Perhaps! Some beautiful new products? Most definitely! We will continue to strive for creative perfection and customer service that is unparalleled! As usual, we invite comments, suggestions and yes, even constructive criticism!
We wish everyone a very Merry Preppy Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Happy Holidays from Preppy In Paradise!
It really is the most wonderful time of the year and we have been very busy little elves! We are now CLOSED TO ALL NEW ORDERS until after the holidays! This is so that we can fulfill our existing orders and give our customers the best possible service - oh, and spend some time with our families as well! We hope you will understand - and that we will see you in the New Year! We will have some new things arriving and will look forward to all the Valentines Day, Easter and birthday orders!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask, we will respond as soon as possible. You are welcome to order things, but they will not be done until the New Year.
Thank you, all of our fabulously preppy customers, for a great year! We hope your holiday season is warm, wonderful and filled with love!
Yours Truly,
Leanne & The Preppy In Paradise Team

Holiday Updates

Hello Preppy Friends!

Just an update on what we are working on, how long things might take if you order, and what we have in stock!

Today we are finishing up some cute orders for our friends at Jason's Deli - who'd have ever thought a Santa hat could be this cute, but add a Jason's logo and there you have it - lots of fun, though I have been craving a ranchero wrap all day!

We are also hard at work on the Engh family dresses (and onesie) - how cute are the girls going to look in their coordinating appliqued dresses! Pictures will be posted tomorrow!

We have a lot of last-minute holiday orders coming in, and we are doing our best to get them done as quickly as possible - if you think you are going to want something done you might want to get in touch with us before we fill up - I am NOT going to work Christmas Eve this year - okay, well if somebody calls me and has a gift-giving emergency (they happen!) then I always try to help, but please, I BEG of you, don't wait til its too late!

Every year we run out of Scout bags before Christmas - why? Because they are a 'go-to' gift for a lot of people - teachers, grandparents, the best friend who has everything - when they are gone, they'll be gone until our next order - and at this late date I don't think I can guarantee they can get me more before Christmas. So let me know if you think you're going to need one, I hate to tell people I'm out of them, but it does happen! Same goes for the market totes - we have been cranking them out and I really think they look fantastic - but again, people are getting 2 or 3 at a time and we are most likely going to run out. If you want to know what bag patterns or market tote colors we still have, just drop us a line at

Phew, okay, back to work!
