11 ways to avoid getting pinched this St. Paddy’s Day

Can we all just agree to avoid the gaudy green fahion faux pas this year on St. Patrick’s Day?

Wearing green to celebrate the Irish holiday doesn’t mean you have to be decked out head to toe in Irish flags, green shiny pants or oversized shamrock sunglasses. And for the love of all that is good, put the “Kiss me I’m Irish!” T-shirt away. Instead, showcase a touch of green in a classy way with some spring fashion trends.

I went to the Hilldale Shopping Center on a hunt for pops of green that will guarantee a pinch-free day (and won’t make your kids or husband embarrassed to be seen with you). Celebrate the holiday, spring and the latest trends all in one. Here’s a few items I found:
