Introducing Corkcicle's Waterman Collection February 22 2017

Introducing… the Waterman! Corkcicle’s toughest collection of Canteens and Tumblers yet. Waterman celebrates the spirit and resilience of those who live their life for the water. Surfers Cory Lopez and Bethany Hamilton’s devotion to the ocean and their determination to overcome all obstacles were two main influences on this new line.

 

Made with a durable, powder-coated finish, the Waterman canteens and tumblers have all the same features as the original ones: crafted from stainless steel with triple-insulation, vacuum-sealed, easy-grip sides, no-slip bottom, and keeps your beverages cold for 25 hours and hot for 12 without freezing or sweating.

 SURFER. SWIMMER. FISHER. FREEDIVER. IF WATER RUNS DEEP, IF IT’S PART OF WHO YOU ARE — YOU’RE A WATERMAN.

 

Pictured above: Bethany Hamilton, an American professional surfer who survived a 2003 shark attack in which her left arm was bitten off but ultimately returned to professional surfing.

Geaux Clear... In Style! August 10 2016

Many NFL venues have recently expanded security measures, particularly through the new clear bag policy. By only allowing clear bags that meet a certain size requirement, the goal is to speed up entrance into stadiums as well as create a safer environment for fans. Most recently, LSU along with many other SEC schools have implemented clear bag policy regulations for upcoming 2016-2017 athletic seasons. 

Carrying around a one gallon clear plastic freezer bag all day to hold your belongings? No thank you.. Instead, here at Caroline and Company we want to help you "Geaux Clear"... in style! 

Starting August 11th, we will be hosting our annual Jon Hart Fall Sale. While our sale typically features different items for back to school such as backpacks and totes, we are so excited to be featuring the "Becky" bag with complies with LSU's stadium regulations. 

These crossbody bags are the perfect size to hold your phone, keys, game ticket, and wallet. AND you can choose your team's colors!
