Seven Decades of Women’s Style with Pendleton

We celebrated seventy years of classic Pendleton style for women on September 9, 2019 at our downtown Portland store. A fantastic time was had by all.

This Fall’s women’s line has a capsule of archive-inspired pieces, so we brought out the original garments and some other favorites to show how good design is timeless–and a lot of fun.

People were transfixed by the details.

The catering was excellent! We want to thank Delilah’s Catering for getting into the spirit of the party and helping us design a menu that reflected the best of decades past. We also hope guests enjoyed the special cocktail developed just for us–“The 49’er”, of course!

We were delighted to see people wearing vintage Pendleton pieces and caught photos of a few, including this beautiful reversible skirt in tartan red and cream.

This plaid wool western shirt on one of the Lindy Society Dancers is a classic. And we think the navy plaid skirt is Pendleton, too!

The Portland Lindy Society dancers set the tone of the evening. Their swing music put everyone in the mood to celebrate.

Food, gifts, dancers, cocktails and music. What more could you ask for? Thank you to everyone who joined in the fun and made this a success.

Here’s to seventy more!
