St. Patty's Day is here, which of course means it's time to don your favorite green garb.
Lucky for us, THE color of 2013 is emerald! What are some fun ways to wear this gorgeous hue this season?
Alexa Rizk, the Outlet Shopping Gal from Outlets at Anthem, has us covered in green with looks you'll love way beyond St. Patty's Day.
The tradition of pinching those who don't wear green on this Irish holiday is said to come from lore that the color green makes you invisible to leprechauns who will pinch you for not honoring the Emerald Isle on its day.
We pinch each other as a reminder to look out for the leprechauns!
Channel the luck o' the Irish with ensembles like these:
