These two colours don't appear in our photo - we had so much choice!!!
Pale Blue/Cream and Black/Camel with white.
Classic stripe scarves with the wearability of pashmina & silk. Perfect!

Roll up, roll up. Get you Pashminas here! We're going through our cupboards and offering up a few plain shawls as special bargains.
This saffron has been a favourite shawl of mine over the years. Sunny as a sunflower, it cheers you up when autumn rolls around. It goes brilliantly with all shades of chocolate and can look great in summer with orange or white.
If you want to request a picture of another clearance colour, drop me a line at email@example.com

Of course, nothing much changes for me; but she has to get used to life back as it was.
No more daily massages or dining with handsome young Nepali Bollywood movie stars.
( I hasten to add that the massages and the actor weren't linked!)
Instead we have been deluged with the post-visit shipments, bearing back all sorts of pashmina goodies to paw over and try and work out which styles are going on our wish list.
There are some dreamy bridal shawls and scrumptious new lines in 100% pashmina knits.
Anyone who has been on the Pashminas Direct site http://www.pashminasdirect.co.uk/ will wonder if I've gone mad, because we don't have a specific bridal or knitwear section. I'm talking about the pieces which we tend to supply to boutiques and stores, rather than on-line. But keep your ear to the ground - these items are seriously luxurious and will be available soon on our sister site....

And these are lightweight pashmina and silk scarves at their very best. Light as a whisper and dyed through several shades to produce a simply stunning effect. This is melon through pale pink though silver ice but we have a huge range of others. We only have a few of each so you won't meet someone else wearing the same scarf...unless you're both punting down the river at the same time. And what are the chances of that happening?

Great for a hint of summer when the weather's miserable (Wimbledon IS on the horizon!)
From the top in Orange Juice, Terracotta, Gold, Mango and Bright Orange. These are only available in ones and twos so get them while you can...

So I can heartily recommend the smallest size of scarf for the cold blooded out there.

The Boss is always keen to go and visit our suppliers, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the pashmina talk might not be the only incentive. Could it be lovely Kathmandu, Everest or the delights of the hotel massage/facial/pedicure services... that keeps drawing her back?
Whatever, pictures are coming of our Nepalese friends!

Prints are hot news in their forms, whether in delicate florals, bold and brights or more earthy tones and we've suddenly found that our camouflage shawls have been flying off the shelves.
The animal print is more of a perennial favourite and a great investment especially in a classic cheetah, leopard or zebra. A hint on a bag or a small scarf can carry you through so many trends. http://www.pashminasdirect.co.uk/Details.asp?ProductID=129
If you're very daring you can go for a coloured animal print - fantastic in the sunshine - but maybe not for all seasons (or years).

1. It's certainly light enough to knot at the side of the hip - single layer for a long skirt or folded in half for the more daring.

We took a punt this season on a crazy colour combination in a lightweight pashmina shawl which shades through this season's key colours.
From Fuchsia to Jade to Purple, this shawl sounds quite scary but works like a dream. And it should look stunning with a LBD. Wow! I'm adding it to my wish list.

Still the same principles apply to wearing the beast (whatever its content).
So how do you wear it?
Here we must bow down to the Italians in their passion for accessories and all things pashmina. The large square scarf - and I mean about 1 metre squared, no little pathetic neckerchief - should be folded into a triangle with the centre point down your chest like a cowboy. The two side points of the triangle are then crossed behind the neck and brought forward so that they drape down over your shoulder blades. Simple and elegant, or rock-chick chic, whatever is your flavour.

In fashion terms people think of it as cerise, bright pink, fuchsia... or berry red. But when you offer all those colours already and someone goes and orders a RASPBERRY, where do you go?
Default mode, in these circumstances is panic and then grab the Pantone book and guess.
A raspberry russian roulette -pink or red. Life's too short.
Tomorrow we will be having kittens about pistachio. That's Pashmina Land for you. http://www.pashminasdirect.co.uk
