Lakeside Selection: Our Weekly Favorites

Although October’s usual colors are black and orange for Halloween, we’re thinking pink for this week’s Lakeside Selection. There’s a perfect pink for every skin tone, and it looks equally good on a little girl’s ribbons or on Helen Mirren’s hair. Sweet, approachable pink is the color of romance, blushes and strawberry cupcakes. Someone who feels wonderful is said to be in the pink of health. The rosy color brings a sense of well-being to everyone who sees it. If you have a passion for this lovely color too, take a look at our favorites of the week and see which ones tickle you pink!

Pink-Sheet-Set

Because it’s a universally flattering hue, pink linens for your bed are great for anyone who wants to wake up feeling beautiful. A pale ballet-slipper pink is sophisticated; a bright pink is cheery. These Pretty in Pink bedsheet sets have touches of pink in printed motifs that have lots of personality. Choose from mellow peace signs, elegantly stylized acanthus leaves or sunny ’60s-style flowers. These pretty sheet sets go well with a pink comforter, but they’re versatile enough to work with other hues or neutrals too. Each Lakeside Selection set includes a fitted sheet and a flat sheet in twin, full and queen sizes.

Scarf-with-Pendant

The Pink Ladies from “Grease” knew it, and so do we; pink and black is a winning combination. Sweet pink takes on a little bit of an edge when you pair it with black, and that contrast always looks sensational. If you’re as enamored of this perfect partnership as we are, you’ll love matching a pendant fashion scarf in pink with your favorite black sweater — or try it in black with your favorite pink top. Either way, it’s a supremely flattering color match-up that looks right for any occasion. With these pendant scarves, you won’t need any other jewelry; the dramatic pendant makes enough of a statement by itself. When you want a more casual look, take off the removable pendant and wear your scarf with jeans.

Tapestry-Throw

October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The pink ribbon loop has become synonymous with breast cancer awareness and support, and you’ll find it gracing many items in the Lakeside Collection. One we especially love is this soft, warm tapestry throw that features words of strength and inspiration. The washable cotton-polyester blend feels cozy on chilly October nights while warming hearts with its message of support for breast cancer survivors and their families. This throw is more than just a beautiful household accent; a portion of the manufacturer’s sales of each throw will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and assist in searching for a cure. Buy it for yourself to show your passion for the cause or give it to someone special to show your support.

Be in the pink this October and enjoy its sweet romance in your wardrobe and home decor. Whether you wear it to proclaim your support for breast cancer research or just happen to love this cheerful hue, pink is perfect for fall.

Lakeside Selection: Our Choice of Favorite Items for the Week

You don’t have to be a wizard to appreciate the charm of owls, and this week, we’re paying homage to our feathered friends. The big-eyed birds have long been considered symbols of wisdom, and the Greek goddess Athena had one as her companion. To many Native American tribes, they symbolized the spirit and represented protection. In the 1970s, owls were a hugely popular design motif; their earthy tones, mystical connotations and striking eyes made them irresistible to artists. Today, the resurgence of retro style and the phenomenal sales of the Harry Potter books have made owls a new style staple.
