Mother’s Day is for golfers, too. If Mom loves to get out there in the fresh air and go on a par-seeking spree, she’ll love this selection of gifts that’ll make this year’s celebration much more than brunch, a corsage and a card.
‘LORDING’ IT OVER
Mom will look great on and off the course with new specialty tees by Kate Lord. The printed 3/4-sleeve length specialty tees are a fun look, and their blend of pima cotton and spandex is comfortable while holding its shape. Each custom-printed tee features a unique tropical design with a contemporary golf scene. The tees, available July 15, come in three colors: melon, pink, turquoise and blue.
Also, Mom can add some sparkle to her game with Kate Lord’s new Crystal headwear and tee shirt collection. The Crystal collection is a combination of a classic fit, style and functionality. The Crystal headwear comes in caps or visors. The unstructured twill caps come with an adjustable strap for a comfortable fit. The chino twill visor has a terry cloth lining and is available in a clip on or coil closure.
The Kate Lord Crystal tee shirt is a 100 percent ring spun cotton jersey with a rib knit collar and open hem sleeve. The tee comes in nine different colors and is available in short and long sleeve. Kate Lord embeds the club logos with crystals on the headwear and tee shirts and uses metallic thread below the logo for the club name. Also, a wide selection of unique motif designs such as martini glasses, wine glasses, ball on a tee and a Scottie dog are available.
Kate Lord also has expanded its offerings of Crystal hat clips and ball markers for 2011, in five new motifs.
