Women’s Accessories Retailer Donates 600 Pashminas to Patients Through the Pashmina for Patients Project.

A story from USA about Pashminas.....

MIDDLEBURG, Va. (PRWEB) June 29, 2018
In a joint effort to provide some comfort to patients undergoing cancer treatment at local hospitals, lou lou boutiques, a Northern VA based retailer of women’s accessories, donated 600 pashmina scarves to Howard County Hospital and INOVA Fairfax Hospital.
This donation was the culmination of the Pashminas for Patients project, which donated one pashmina scarf for every one sold by the company in the month of May. lou lou offered its customers the opportunity to contribute to the cause by purchasing a pashmina scarf and the option of writing a note of support.
“Our goal was to get to 500 scarves, and we were blown away by the participation and enthusiasm of our customers. We ended up at 600 at the end of the month,” said lou lou owner, Tara Wegdam. “We were very excited to find a unique way to give some kind of comfort to people going through a really hard time, even if it’s something as small as a pashmina scarf. The Pashmina scarves come in different colors and can be styled in many ways to keep patients warm while brightening their day”. “Many of our customers wrote a personal note at the time of purchase to a patient they did not know. It was hearth warming to see their support”, according to Wegdam.
Headquartered in Middleburg, Virginia, lou lou Boutiques is an East-Coast based retailer of women’s fashion accessories, including jewelry, scarves, hats, and handbags. With 30 retail locations in 8 states and a growing online presence, lou lou has become the go to place for latest fashion trends.

I have had many pashminas from your company in the past . My recent purchases were 2 cashmere children’s hats, and 3 pashminas, one of which was ‘bespoke’. Everything has arrived really quickly, and in top condition. Beautiful colours and fantastic quality,I just love this company and will no doubt return again and again.THANK YOU. You’ll be part of our Christmas (gifting/ keeping warm and smart) I wish you & yours VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS too!

My second pashmina from this company and as with my first, I absolutely LOVE it. Beautiful quality, drapes wonderfully and the colour is just as I hoped. I’m really pleased with the swatch book (such a great idea!) which I’m going to keep… I can see I’ll want to buy more from Mypashmina in the future. This time my pashmina was bespoke (with a hemmed finish) and if I have a small reservation (but I’m still giving 5 stars) it’s that the stitching is slightly off true at the beginning and end of the hems. This is intended more as constructive criticism than a complaint; it is a LOVELY pashmina. Thank you!

Paul King – 25th January 2018
Hello. Thanks so much for your comment. I will pass along the comment about the start of the stitching to the guys in Kathmandu. Every little thing like this helps us get closer to our aim, so I really appreciate it. Thanks for all the warmth in your message too.. motivational 🙂

Bought 2 pashminas for the first time from this company. One regular stock which arrived very quickly, one colour to order which took slightly longer. Both are great quality and a lovely large size. I ordered the swatch book before choosing colours which is a great idea. I will be ordering again.

Angela Graham (verified owner) – 20th February 2018
I have bought several pashmina stoles over the years, as well as cashmere scarves and jumpers. Always great service, always beautiful products, the pashminas particularly. I wear mine so machine the winter, and have one which I wear “everyday” as well as others which I wear as the fancy takes me. LOVE My Pashmina.

Paul King – 21st February 2018
Thanks very much. It is great to hear that we are achieving the consistency we are aiming for. Thank you.

Diana Hirsch (verified owner) – 23rd February 2018
everything is fine: size, feel, delivery speed, except for the colour, as it does not exactly match the image. I think I would need the swatchbook the next time, but I guess lending it to me as a customer in Germany would be a bit complicated, or should I buy it? Fantastic customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5
Michaela (verified owner) – 22nd October 2017
I have ordered many of these scarfs in the last 5 or more years. The quality is excellent. And even though delivery took much longer than usual it was well worth waiting for. I recommmend buying a swatchbook before choosing the colour.

Marina Simonova – 7th August 2018
This is my third bespoke pashmina from this company, but first classic one. I’ve ordered biggest size in clematis blue. It’s absolutely gorgeous,the softness, lightness, subtle sheen and most beautiful drape of this shawl made me quite a center of attention. Color is perfect for my skin tone(pale and cool undertones) and goes with pretty much everything On side note I have purchased it together with a jumper for my son and was very surprised to get the jumper delivery in a week at no extra cost (and we are talking New Zealand). Pashmina took about 6 weeks which is what I expected, again delivered with no extra charges,not many companies would do that.

It's so hot that we have to sell cashmere very cheaply - 75% off

With the thermomenter reading 32c, we realise that the last thing you want right now is a lovely soft cosy cashmere snood.

However, for those who like to plan ahead. Or for those who spend much time in ice cold air-conditioning, we have some very very big discounts for you.

75% off many from our LUX cashmere brand.  Take a look, and grab a bargain while they are available.

Regulatory Capture - EU Rules

New EU Newsletter Rules

How will it effect you?
Have you ever gone to the ‘promotions’ tab in your email, scanned through to see if anything is of interest, then deleted all of them without reading any ?
The EU has decided that this is too much trouble, so from 28th May 2018, unless you re-affirm that you want to receive news from Mypashmina, you will not continue to receive news.
The video below shows what you will be protected from.

European Comission
Why make these new laws ?
It’s called regulatory capture. The big companies lobby the governments to ratchet up the regulation which benefits them and harms their smaller competitors in case any of them take any market share.
Who benefits ?
Amazon, Ebay, Google, Facebook, Twitter benefit. If small businesses have a massively reduced email list, then they have to either sell their products via the big outlets like Amazon and Ebay, or pay Facebook, Twitter and Google for advertising. Also the big high street stores benefit. Email newsletters act as a little reminder that that great small store you bought from last year is still around. High street stores are hard to forget, so a reminder is not necessary. Consultants  and lawyers also benefit as they always do with new legislation, the more ridiculous it is, then all the better for them.
It isn’t the consumer who benefits, that is for sure. See the video above about what you might be saved from! Ironically, my twitter feed always has some EUROPEAN COMMISSION advert that I didn’t ask for in my feed. They auto-play videos at me automatically using up a tiny bit of my monthly bandwidth.
To be unsubscribed from an email, this is how to do it.

Am I missing something?
If you read this and think I missed something, please let me know. We are always happy to hear views and news from our lovely customers.

  1. Is all customer data kept secure in one safe place ?
    Yes. We keep customer data secure on our own server. Access is secured with 2 Factor Authentication. We only keep order and contact details. We do not keep any card or payment details.
  2. Is all customer data recorded for a specific purpose and is the customer aware of this ?
    Yes, the data such as name and address is recorded so that the customers order can be delivered and so that Mypashmina can communicate with the customer regarding their order.
  3. Is all personal data consented to by the individual ?
    Yes, the customer is unable to place an order without voluntarily entering the necessary details to process and communicate regarding that order.
  4. Will we remove all customer details if asked to by that individual ?
    Yes, it takes about 3 clicks from our end to remove any and all data regarding an individual, not withstanding that we have to keep a record of each transaction for the tax authorities.
  5. Will we contact the relevant authorities within 72 hours if  there is a data breach ?
    Yes, in the extremely unlikely event that there is a data breach, we will contact the relevant authorities.
  6. Do we keep a record of how customers have consented to be contacted by Mypashmina? 
    Yes, to consent to be contacted other than in direct relation to an order, from May 25th 2018, customers must click on a link in an email to confirm their consent. Also known as double opt-in. We keep a record automatically of this double opt in.
  7. What should you do if you feel we have not been compliant ?
    Please tell us. We will fix any problem immediately.

Striped Cashmere Scarves -

I think I failed a bit on the photography of our range of striped cashmere scarves. Maybe it was the angle, or maybe it should have been a closeup.

We have recently received two FIVE STAR customer comments about these cashmere scarves, as follows:

"Asolutely stunning! Super soft, thick and luxurious scarf in the most gorgeous colours. I love it. I already have 2 of your large cashmere pashmina, and they are perfect as wraps but too big to use as a scarf – this is a perfect addition to my collection."

"A lovely scarf and really good quality."

Thank you so much to everyone who leaves feedback. We publish them all including the negative ones, and our responses.

They are double layer cashmere and long and quite wide, but I don't think the photo's convey how generous in size these scarves are.

They are 25x170cm, and double layer cashmere. This means that a) they don't curl up, and b) you can feel the thickness when you wear it.

Here's a wierd thing ... If you want, you can buy a carpet that perfectly matches these scarves from!

Gingham Pashminas - from

 Gingham Pashminas

Brigitte Bardot famously wore a pink gingham dress when she got married. This started a trend which caused a shortage of this fabric in France.

We have 10 colours of Gingham cashmere pashminas in stock. They are 70% cashmere and 30% silk, measuring either 70x200cm or 45x200cm.

A little history.... (from wikipedia)

The name may originate from Malay genggang, meaning 'ajar, separate'.

Alternately, it is speculated that the fabric now known as gingham may have been made at Guingamp, a town in Brittany, France, and that the fabric may be named after the town.

Some sources say that the name came into English via Dutch.

When originally imported into Europe in the 17th century, gingham was a striped fabric, though now it is distinguished by its checkered pattern.

From the mid-18th century, when it was being produced in the mills of Manchester, England, it started to be woven into checked or plaid patterns (often blue and white).

Checked gingham became more common over time, though striped gingham was still available in the late Victorian period.

The equivalent in the French language is the noun vichy, from the town of Vichy in France.

The Long Cashmere Cardigan 

Long cashmere cardigans are perfect to throw over your combo of a tank top and jeans for Spring weather. Easy to pack away, these cardigans ensure you have the cool-girl streetstyle look down pat.
