What a fantastic Olympic Opening Ceremony on Friday! We throughly enjoyed watching, and were even more excited when we spied one of the dancers wearing the House of Holland Animal Fishnet tights for the music section of the show...
If you love these tights, now is the time to pick up your pair, a steal at only £5 - reduced from £15! We have limited stock so grab yours while you can.
Or shop the rest of our £5 or less sale - some amazing bargains to be had!
Being based in Derbyshire, Pretty Polly welcomes the Olympic torch relay to the East midlands this evening! Although we've just heard it is running a little later than scheduled due to lightening in Mansfield earlier today.
We're particularly rooting for local torch bearer - Regina O'Reilly from Nottingham. Sadly, her dad died of bowel cancer 4 years ago. After successful fundraising events last year, Regina is now aiming to raise £2011 for Bowel Cancer UK, £2011 for The Irish Cancer Society and £2011 for Castleblayney Cancer Society (her hometown).
Regina has run 4 half marathons so far this year, preparing for the Nottingham half marathon and finishing with the Dublin marathon. So far, Regina has raised a fanatastic £4500 and is also planning on walking the Great Wall of China in October! Phew!
Good luck with the torch relay Regina! We hope it's back on schedule and the lightening (and rain!) stays away!
If you'd like to support Regina and her chosen charities please visit Regina's JustGiving page

Here is my first outfit post for you all, I will hopefully be doing some more in the future, and since this is my first one, I thought I'd start with something special...
Everyone loves to take pride in their country don't they? It's something we all have in common, pride in who we are and where we come from! Being an Irish Gal myself, St. Patrick's day (or Paddy's day as we like to call it) is a huge cause of celebration for everyone in my country. Seeing the new House of Holland Flag tights collection, I thought it would be fun to play around with some other countries' emblems for a change!
The collection features some really cool Austrailian 'Aussie' flag tights, American 'Stars & Stripes' Flag tights, and of course the amazing British Union Jack 'Rule Britannia' tights. And what with the Queen currently being on her Diamond Jubilee tour and the London 2012 Olympics just around the corner, what better time for you to show some national pride, by wearing that Union Jack print, loud and proud!
Here's me in my Stars and Stripes print, I thought it would be cool to toughen them up with a beanie and a leather jacket, for a more edgy look. I just love how bright and fun they are, I really can't wait to try out the rest!
House of Holland for Pretty Polly Flag Tights will be available to buy from www.prettypolly.co.uk at the end of April. Can't wait!
Thats all for now folks, Until next time!
