Shopping Feature & Giveaway: Pigtail Pals

I'll be the first one to admit that I've been swept up in the pink and princess girly stuff. Guilty as charged!

But I'm also the first one to stand in line for children's creativity. As far as my daughter is concerned, she can be ANYTHING she wants to be! I may be a SAHM now, but in the past I've ran my own business, traveled the world by myself, etc. If my daughter wants to be president, guess who will be right behind her for her campaign? You bet that's me, the crazy Mami behind her! ;)

When I first came across Pigtail Pals, I thought the designs were FUN! The slogan is Redefining Girly, and it suits this brand just perfectly.


Pigtail Pals is the business baby of Melissa, a fellow Mom who became a Mompreneur. One day it hit her when she was tired of all the pink and princess stuff, that maybe she could Redefine Girly with her daughter, and other girls, and show the world that they can expect the same thing from their daughters as they do their sons. The shirts show girls that they can be anything they dream to be!

My favorite design is the Astronaut tee:


Remember the Space Camp craze back in the 80's? That was the first thing I thought of when I saw this design. It even says When You Wish Upon A Star on it!

Every month, Pigtail Pals donates to a different charity. For the month of August, it's Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Win it! Pigtail Pals is generously giving one of my readers their choice of any shirt in any size from the store! To enter, visit the website and tell us: Which design do you feel does the best job of Redefining Girly for young girls?

I'll give you a bonus entry if you tell Melissa what design you'd like to see her create next!

I love the carpenter tee "I broke a nail" - totally redefines girly. So does the racecar driver!! How about "throws like a girl" or "runs like a girl"?? Love the theme and the artwork is adoreable :-) I retweeted this too! @lizjmeyer

I love the racecar driver......I drive like a girl, to me this redefines being a girly. I remember when driving like a girl meant being a "bad" driver I love that this puts that myth away.
