Margo Petitti Scarves

Every so often I will get an email from an alumni, who read about Kick PR in the latest school publication, and they wonder if I will help them with their new product. Up until about two months ago, I turned people away because, as excited as I am to see schoolmates be creative, just because I went to school with you doesn't mean I can represent your line, especially when I don't like it. I don't mean to be harsh, really, but people trust me because I am honest. Justify Full

I get an email from an old classmate who asked if he could put his sister -in- law in touch with me, because she has a new scarf line that needs some PR. I said of course, and thought no harm in having a conversation. Margo and I chatted on the phone for a while and then she said she was sending me samples; I could get an idea and see if the scarves were something Kick PR could stand behind.

I opened up the box and from the first moment I fell in love. "Yes! OMG! YES!" I said to myself, though everyone around me turned around, apparently I am louder than I think. When I tell you these scarves by Margo Petitti are fab, I am not lying, not one bit.

I have never seen patterns like this work: plaids, stripes, blues, pinks, patchwork. Its all so mismatched in a way that works like you wouldn't believe. There are scarves made with bamboo, silk, cashmere, and wool.

And the names are adorable. Lauren, Miss Kitty, Barbie and that's Francisco over there on the right. But don't be mistaken, these are no joke. Margo's scarves are all made by her, and she has gone that extra mile to make sure everything from the brand, to the hang-tags to the last stitch are perfect.

You can find her on Etsy and soon in some stores up and down the North East. I personally made a sales call last week, and the buyer nearly died. I am telling you, you want these scarves, and so do all of your friends. I promise.

Margo Petitti. Spread the word.
