Dahlias inspired Shoo for Good's latest insect-repellent scarf.

Hello Dahlia!

When it came time to design our first print for Shoo for Good, I couldn't get dahlias out of my head. My mind brought me back to Paris, to the Parc Floral and its annual Dahlia Competition where the most beautiful plants gathered to show off and one-up each other.

Once settled on the dahlia for the print, though, I had to choose which dahlia!

Enjoy rosé in the garden with friends and your Shoo for Good insect-repellent scarf to keep you bug-free!

Garden Days!

We're gearing up for The Garden Conservancy's annual Open Days garden tour. The Edna May Garden, named after my grandmother who planted the first roses here in the '60s, debuted on the tour in 2007.

Our garden, designed and updated by Lisa Moseley, gives us so much joy--and was the inspiration for Shoo for Good! We hope you can come visit on May 6th.

A nice cold Perrier-menthe in Paris.

The New Blue for 2022

Shoo for Good loves France, the country that inspired our new cobalt blue wrap. I spend a lot of time in Paris and get lots of questions from friends when planning trips there. I thought, why not share with you, too? Maybe you're planning a trip, too!
