T is for Tommy Bahama
This week’s letter assignment is the letter T.
The Tommy Bahama® philosophy: “Tommy Bahama can help you escape the troubles of the modern world in favor of a place that’s relaxed and worry free. . .where life is one long weekend.”
“There is a warm westerly breeze rustling the palms, the lulling roar of crashing waves – it’s a celebration of island living, courtesy of Tony Margolis, Bob Emfield and Lucio Dalla Gasperina. In 1992, our fictional Tommy Bahama character became the inspiration behind the experience of traveling to exotic locales where the food is good, the beaches are hot and the mood is relaxed.
Tommy Bahama and his tropical adventures command the finer things in life: casual, comfortable sportswear, swimwear, footwear and accessories for men and women. As the purveyor of island lifestyles, Tommy Bahama, has created a world where life moves at a more relaxed pace, where the enjoyment of the good life is the norm, rather than the exception.”
I’ve always loved their home furnishings, ideal for a vacation or coastal home~
“Bring the island lifestyle experience home, literally, with Tommy Bahama. Authentic island materials, color, texture, luxurious fabrics and an unerring eye toward the smallest of details, these are the elements that define the collection.
The collections encompass home furnishings, outdoor furniture, artisan quality rugs, bedding, bath, fine island linens and a new collection of ceramics along with glassware to enjoy Tommy Bahama’s new premium light and dark sipping rum. Capturing the essence of island living, Tommy Bahama Home provides a restful retreat from the stress of day-to-day life.”
In addition to home decor, they sell towels~
And to get yourself in the “one long weekend” mindset, you must mix yourself a cocktail. . .
“Taste paradise, one sip at a time with Tommy Bahama Rums crafted in Barbados. White Sand Rum is a clear, light-bodied rum with a smooth entry and clean finish with hints of tangy, tropical fruit. Golden Sun is a full-bodied, amber rum, with a fruity nose and a taste nuanced with hints of coffee, roasted nuts, and sweet pralines. Perfect for savoring the tropics – wherever you may be.”
In addition to Rum and Home Decor, they sell apparel. Here is my husband’s well-worn t-shirt. If the man in your life needs help to “escape the troubles of the modern world” (with father’s day around the corner) look here.
Inspired by the islands with a passport to paradise, I set a table to escape my own modern-day troubles :-)
Hula leaf placemats & shells. . .
Flatware resembling nautical rope~
Napkins featuring Cape Relax, Tropic of Couch Potato & Catch A Lot Island. . .
Amber palm tree etched glasses. . .
And last but not least, my Peachy Keen Martini, recipe here.
Nothing to tempt your palate on this table, unless you consider the light brown sugar masquerading as beach sand :-)
