Knickers Nutcracker ~ WIN $25!

I LOVE family traditions!

Growing up we had a holiday tradition of hiding a small little soldier ornament around the house between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Whoever finds him gets to hide him again (the trick is being stealth!) and then we all have a good time searching. The winner is the person who hid him last when December 25th comes along.

Want to win a $25 Knickers gift certificate?

I thought it would be fun to share this family tradition with you. Find our Knickers Nutcracker and you could win! He's hidden in one of our Christmas windows. Look high and low, and when you find him leave a comment here with his location, your name & your email. (Comments won't actually appear so we can protect your privacy.)

We'll draw a winner on December 24th!

Wishing you many holiday blessings, from my family to yours.

Feu de Bois

Have you tried our Ski House candle? We love it so much that we can't stop picking it up just to breath it in!

Perfect for this crisp cooler season, this candle is an intoxicating fragrance of Feu de Bois, rare woody essences with characteristics of a crackling fire. It's soy based, burns 100 hours, and is poured in an art glass that's so pretty you'll want to keep it long after you've enjoyed your candle.

Curl up in something cozy, pour a glass of wine, relax and let this candle take you don't even have to get up to put another log on the fire.

Fall Back!

How will you be spending your extra hour this weekend?

We're in love with Bedhead's stretch lounge pajamas. They're made of the softest cotton, come in really pretty prints and offer a little extra support in places we like a little lift.

This cozy pajama, with a good book from The Bookstore, and a delicious steaming hot chocolate from Honey Cafe is the perfect way to "fall back" into an extra hour just for you!

Retro Chic!

Love the show Mad Men like we do at Knickers? Check out our Retro Chic bra from Wacoal for that dramatic uplifted silhouette. The soft grey tulle with black lace & rhinestone adornment, along with the seaming and structure, make this bra a pretty everyday option. We think Joan would LOVE Retro Chic.

Available in C to H cup!

We ♥ Bedhead!

We're LOVING Bedhead's new Spring collection!

Just in this week is the new stretch cotton for Spring. The sunflower chemise in hot pink with lavender is perfect for sleeping, or even cute as a sundress. The tiffany blue arabesque button-front pajama is Behead's classic fit that we all know and love.

We first introduced you to Bedhead's stretch cotton in the Fall last year and the response was outstanding! Now they're offering new styles for Spring in this same great comfortable easy fabric.

And, as always, Bedhead sleepwear is made in the United States.

Men's Night Tonight!

Valentine's Day
Thursday, February 11th
6 to 8 pm

Want to play cupid this Valentine's Day? We can help. Tonight's a night designed just for the guys.

Enjoy refreshments, nibbles, expert customer service and complimentary gift wrapping.

Here are some ideas to get you thinking....
  • Lingerie....both sexy and cozy
  • Luxurious bubble bath
  • Silky body moisturizers
  • Jelly Bath foot soak
  • Romantic coupons
  • Knickers gift certificates
psst...don't forget to bring your sweetie's sizes. If you're interested in a pretty new bra and panty set, and don't know your Valentine's sizes, we suggest doing a little innocent browsing in her lingerie drawer. Just look for one of her favorite bras and you'll find her size (both a number and a letter size) on the tag sewn inside.

How about making a night of it? Grab a buddy and start with us for Men's Night, then hit one of Glen Ellyn's fantastic restaurants/bars and reward yourself for being such a thoughtful guy!

The Perfect Bra for Spring!

Have you seen the new Stocking Stripe bra from Betsey Johnson? We LOVE it and we're sure you will too!

This demi bra has lightly lined cups with pretty Point d'Esprit striping that doesn't show under a tee. It has sheer winged sides and a hook and eye closure in the back. But the best feature is the "J Hook" in the back that allows this bra to easily convert to a racer-back style. Genius!

The Stocking Stripe thong and low-rise boyleg have the same Point d'Esprit striping detail with contrasting bows.

Betsey's new Stocking Stripe bra and matching bottoms are available in pussycat pink and raven black.
