We were pleasantly surprised this past week when we received a gift basket with L’eggs Sheer Energy Pantyhose! What a trip down memory lane! L’eggs was the first hosiery brand to have mass market distribution back in the 1970′s. According to Women’s Wear Daily, it is ranked among the top 20 hosiery brands.
So, here’s what they did. L’eggs Brand Inc. sent us a kit stuffed full with all their must-have Spring essentials, including two of the classic Sheer Energy L’eggs eggs, this season’s hottest nail polish, tinted lip-gloss, a pedicure kit and more! What a nice surprise!
It is sure “eggxciting” to have L’eggs as we Spring Forward with the season’s styles. With its sheer panty, lightweight hosiery fabric, these pantyhose are perfect to wear with the season’s monochromatic and pastel dresses and tuics–that range from sorbet shades of blush, violet, mint and blue. (We always stored jewelry and other things in those eggs!)
There is a great story behind the packaging as well. Apparently, the hosiery company has received requests to bring back the iconic eggs with the L’eggs pantyhose ever since they retired the packaging back in 1992! And, yes! We immediately put them on AND The L’eggs hose are still the same, tried and true hose we knew and loved back then.
Wait, that is not all! There is the Fabulous After 40 promotion! Women over 21 will have the opportunity to win more than $40,000 in prizes!
