Fresh Produce Review



To be honest, I had never heard of the clothing company Fresh Produce before.  When I was approached by them to do a review, I had to google them.  And what I found was what seemed like a fun company with bright, colorful beautiful clothing for women of all sizes and children too.

Fresh Produce is the brain storm of couple Thom and Mary Ellen Vernon.  It all started in the year 1984 in Long Beach,  when they were selling silk-screened t-shirts in bright graphics and custom jewelry at the '84 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles in the parking lot across the street from the coliseum

Now in its third decade, Fresh Produce continues to be primarily Made in the USA with one of the most original, refreshing and captivating casual, resort and sportswear lines in America. Known and loved by women ages 6 months to 60-plus for lush colors, year-round sensibility, simply inspired design and coastal comfort, Fresh Produce continues to delight customers around the globe.

There are so many beautiful articles of clothing from womens cardigans to clothes for spring and while you are busy planning your trips this summer, take a look at the vacation clothes on their website as well.

I had such a hard time deciding what item to review....the colors are amazing and the styles look so comfortable and the prices are affordable as well.  I seriously lost a few hours looking at their dresses, jackets, shirts and skirts.

So what did I choose?

This fun, sailaway jacket....

I chose the jacket, because I don't have a one, I usually wear a cardigan or one of Rich's button up shirts.  And since he is getting a teensy bit frustrated that I keep raiding his side of the closet for his shirts when I'm chilly, I decided I should really get my own jacket.  My daughters and a few friends told me this jacket looked "more like a shirt" but I don't really mind.  It's such a bright color....very spring-y and so comfortable that I love it anyway.  The big cargo pockets give me a place to throw my keys and cell phone in.  There are also draw strings tucked inside that if I desired a more "tailored" like look I can pull tighter and tie.

The jacket comes in XS to XL....and with such colors as "tropical punch", "sunrise", "cool breeze" and "truffle", I guarantee you will have a hard time deciding as well.




Fresh Produce clothes are available at 25 company-owned retail boutiques, online and at more than 500 independent retailers throughout the continental US, Canada, Hawaii and the Caribbean.   Fresh Produce also ships to over 200 countries, so women outside the US can enjoy the colorful styles, too.

Fresh Produce can also be found on facebook and twitter.
