A few months ago THP wrote a piece on a remarkable woman with an even more remarkable store. The woman is Karen Cantrell and the store is Lady Golf Sportswear. We had such a great time speaking with her and such a great response from the readers we asked her to be a part of our Spring 09 fashion week, and she jumped at the opportunity. When we spoke to Karen she said she would send us a few sample items of what she will be showcasing for spring. We expected maybe a shirt, pair of pants and hat, wow were we wrong. She sent a box FULL of unbelievable polos, shorts, pants, hats, visors, socks and shoes…oh the shoes.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Karen about Lady Golf, and what they have in store for Spring 09.
Golfer Gal: We were amazed at how many items you sent us. We were blown away by all the shoes, so classy, so stylish, they looked too nice to be golf shoes.
Karen: I love shoes, I have always had a passion for shoes, in fact I have extensively studied Italian shoes. I am sort of a shoe freak.
Golfer Gal: We noticed you sent three brands; Walter Geniun, Unutzer, and Sesto, what made you chose those?
Karen: Quality, everything in my store is based around quality. The shoes are not just golf shoes they are lifestyle footwear.
Golfer Gal: We noticed all the clothing you sent was from The Choice to Win, what made you chose that line?
Karen: I love their bold colors. Their spring line has a lot of bright colors like lime and orange as well as fun floral prints and polka dots. I believe this brand is not a trend but an essential and it will appreciate in value over time. The pieces of tomorrow will go great with the pieces of yesterday.
Golfer Gal: We loved that you sent hats and visors along with the apparel. We especially loved the large brimmed visor, can you tell us about that?
Karen: The visor is by Eric Javits. They make an oversized brim to give you more coverage from the sun. They are all hand made and hand crafted. This item is great because it protects you from the sun but you still look great. (THP agrees)
Golfer Gal: How do feel about the items you sell at Lady Golf Sportswear?
Karen: I love every piece, if I didn’t I wouldn’t sell it. I look for items that are casual chic. I love texture and layering. These clothes are great on the course or paired with a pair of earrings and fun clutch off the course. Every item in my store is quality and the clothes make you feel happy when you wear them.
Golfer Gal: Do you plan to add men’s wear to Lady Golf?
Karen: I get requests all the time, and we do have some men’s items. We have golf bags and some Walter Genuin shoes, but at Lady Golf Sportswear we specialize in woman’s fashion and we plan to keep it that way.
On behalf of the lady golfers of America, we are very thankful Karen plans to continue catering to female fashion. When browsing through her website I came across two items that really caught my attention. The first item is called DIMR’S, and they are a self adhesive product which covers up the nipple when you prefer a more modest look. I am sure many women can appreciate this item, especially if they are playing golf on a cold day. The second item, Cleavage Coolers, have the opposite effect. These are aromatherapy body coolers with flax seed, lavendar and mint. You place the cooler in the freezer and when you are warm, like after a game of golf in the hot Florida sun, you put this in the front of your bra and it will cool you down. Being that I live in Florida, and that I am ALWAYS hot, I absolutely loved this product and had to ask Karen about it. After mentioning my interest in the DIMR’S and Cleavage coolers, I received a package in the mail just days later with both inside. Karen is an outstanding woman who knows her fashion, she knows women and she is the essence of sophistication. Her customer service is second to none and we feel honored to have had the opportunity to work with her for a second time.
