LUCK OF THE IRISH
Do you know why we wear green on St Patrick’s Day? There’s no definitive answer, but some of the reasons we’ve heard are for luck, to show pride in being Irish and even to make yourself invisible to leprechauns.
While no one can agree on where the tradition started, adding something green into your life on 17th March is a fantastic way to give a nod to the Emerald Isle’s national holiday.
But why stop at clothes? Here at the Bridges we’ve compiled green goodies from all over the centre, with something for everyone to enjoy.
Primark, St Patrick’s Day hat drop earrings
