Did you see Penny?


Did you see Penny on Channel #2, WKRN Monday 5/14/12  at 4:00pm?  She was interviewed concerning her personal experience with skin cancer!
 
May is National Skin Cancer month, and this is something that has been extremely up close and personal for Penny.  She has had over 150+ skin cancers removed since 2000. Penny is asking that you help spread the word about the importance of daily sunscreen and the re-application of sunscreen every 2 hours – which is the best preventative measure to help avoid skin cancer.
 
Did you know that some clothing now comes with a UV Protection Factor (or “UPF”).?  The UPF  rating system measures the UV protection provided by fabric. It is very similar to the SPF rating system used for sunscreens.

A garment with a UPF of 50 only allows 1/50th of the UV radiation falling on the surface of the garment to pass through it. In other words, it blocks 49/50ths or 98% of the UV radiation. Look for this rating on bathing suits.

While not all clothing is rated yet, there are some things to keep in mind while selecting your summer wardrobe. Here are the factors that affect the level of ultraviolet protection provided by a fabris and the UPF rating. We are listing these in order of importance:

  • The weave of the fabric – tighter weave is best
  • The color of the fabric – darker is better
  • The weight of the fabric – heavier is better
  • The stretchiness of the fabric – less  stretch is better

   The other major factor that affects protection is the addition of chemicals such as UV absorbers or UV diffusers during the manufacturing process. Many factors that make a garment comfortable also make it less protective – the major design challenge for sun protective clothing is how to combine comfort, style and protection in the one garment.

 While not all clothing adds UPF protection, Penny & her fabulousstaff would be more than glad to help you select the perfect pieces that do the best they can. For example: the amazing Joseph Ribkoff dress to the right is a better choice – add a great hat for more coverage – and for exposed areas, apply sunscreen before you dress – and don’t forget to apply just before you head out the door for lunch. Many sunscreens now come in a powder tube that can be applied just like powder make-up! They come in translucent and tinted – not messy and can be carried in your purse.

Be safe – and help us spread the word!

Free Pandora Bracelet


 Elegant and timeless, Pandora’s charm bracelet is an essential part of any collection. Pandora is offering an opportunity to add one of their signature pieces to your very own collection.

From today, March 15th through the 17th – if you purchase $100 in Pandora jewelry at Penny’s Closet, you will receive a Free Pandora clasp bracelet (retail value $65, offer good while supplies last).

So why are Pandora bracelets so special? Pandora bracelets are designed with special threads inside the beads that allow them to be added to or removed from the bracelet, and also move easily while worn.  A Pandora bracelet has 3 sections divided by threads. Every Pandora bead also has threads inside it to enable the beads to be placed on the bracelet in any design or order and can be changed to compliment any style of outfit. This means, a woman need never wear her Pandora bracelet the same way more than once, but can if she  wants to.

Penny’s closet has so many charms, beads and spacers to chose from. This fact alone is what makes each bracelet unique. Most of our clients chose charms and colors that mean something to them.  It’s always fun to start a bracelet for a friend – and a sale like this is the perfect time.

FUN little bit:  Pandora was a woman who was created by a Greek God, according to Greek mythology.  Pandora was sent down to earth with a box. Not just any box – for when she opened it everything evil escaped and only what was good remained. Go ahead, open Pandora’s box.

Recently, a very special bracelet was started in memory of a special little boy.  Not one bracelet, but two.  Clinton Milliken was a beautiful local 7 year old boy who battled Medullablastoma for over two years. Both his mother and his “utter mutter” were given starter bracelets by a dear friend who chose a few beads and charms as a gift for them. They came into Penny’s Closet and we added to that by adding his initials, the little boy charm and the fish charm.  To read more about Clinton, you may read this blog post, http://woodardgirl.wordpress.com/2012/02/09/my-sweet-sweet-clinton/ or visit the 501(c)(3) organization that has been set up in his memory and who’s mission it is to serve local families who are affected by childhood cancer.  http://www.clintonsclub.org/

So you have read that these bracelets are more than just a fashion statement – they have meaning, and you have also read that you can get a free bracelet by purchasing $100 worth of charms? But even more exciting? An anonymous donor has offered to donate $25 for every bracelet that is earned during this sale to Clinton’s Club.  Hurry – they will not last.

Penny’s closet is located at 1602 W. Northfield Blvd., Suite #100 in Murfreesboro, TN.  Telephone (615) 890-0415. Penny and her staff are all about giving back and we are honored to be a part of this worth while cause.
