Saint Patrick's Day Shopping: 9 Appropriate Buys That Aren't Totally Cheesy

Next Saturday is St. Paddy's day, but that doesn't mean you should wear a clover covered top hat while sucking down spiked Shamrock Shakes. There are plenty of ways to celebrate your inner Irishness that don't lead to wasted money, embarrassing photographs and a mean hangover. To help you make a wise (yet occasion appropriate) sartorial choice, we've found nine pieces that pay homage to the Emerald Isle—and work the other 364 days of the year, too. (As for the milkshakes? We can only offer our advice: avoid your local McDonalds. Eat kale instead. That's green too.)
