With the cold, blustery, snowy weather we’ve had in State College this spring, it’s hard to believe that Penn State football’s annual Blue-White game is next weekend. One of the highlights of Nittany Nation’s calendar and something that both students and alumni look forward to each year, the annual Blue-White game will be played Saturday, April 21, 2018, in Beaver Stadium. The intra-squad scrimmage is scheduled to kick at 3 pm giving fans plenty of time to enjoy various weekend activities before and after the game.
I think you’ll agree that now is the perfect time to freshen up your gear and to show your team spirit, so I’ve compiled a list of this season’s must-have Penn State items. Whether you need a new autograph football, rain gear or new tailgating supplies, Lions Pride has you covered. Have a wonderful Blue-White weekend, Nittany Nation and don’t forget to stop by Lions Pride to say hi next weekend!
One of the most popular events every Blue-White weekend is the player autograph session at Beaver Stadium. This year the Penn State football team will be signing autographs from 12:15 pm to 1:05 pm on Saturday. Display the autographs of your favorite Penn State players for years to come on this classic Nike autograph football.
One of Lions Pride’s most popular hats this fall was the Legacy play caller hat. Now available in five must-have colors, the comfort of this hat is truly unrivaled. Made of 100% cotton twill with an unstructured, low-profile fit, this item will be one of your favorites for years to come.
This is one of my very favorite Penn State ladies crew sweatshirts. It oozes cozy and looks adorable with jeans. Right now, it looks like Blue-White 2018 has the potential to be chilly. I would suggest layers for all the tailgaters out there. League’s Ezra can be paired with a cute vest for extra warmth. This item is also great for chilly summer nights and will be a hit with your friends during Penn State’s annual Whiteout in the fall.
Kick off the grilling season in LP’s fun Penn State tailgater apron! Perfect for BBQing at home or outside of Beaver Stadium, make this season’s tailgate, tailGREAT!
League, a fan-favorite at Lions Pride and a personal favorite of mine, is well known for their luxurious tri-blend fabric. A longtime bestseller, League’s Heritage crew sweatshirt is a must-have item for any Penn State fan. With every wash, this classic favorite becomes even softer and the classic logo is something you’ll be proud to wear for years to come.
I can’t even begin to tell you how obsessed I am with these new patterned jackets from Charles River. Nothing says spring and summer quite like stripes and polka dots! Constructed from a lightweight, breathable, wind and water-resistant fabric, this jacket is truly suitable for any generation and will keep you warm during cool spring days and chilly summer nights. Show off your Penn State pride in a stylish, yet practical way.
Love it or hate it, Blue-White is a notorious weekend for spring showers. As of this publication, there is a 50% chance that it will rain next Saturday, so it is best to be prepared with Lillybee’s Penn State rain boots. Constructed of 100% waterproof material, these boots provide the ultimate in comfort and style. If you love them, it is best to act now because once they are sold out, Lions Pride will not have the ability to reorder them.
No tailgate is complete without festive Penn State dining products. Make sure to stock up on plenty of paper cups, napkins and plates before the big game to guarantee your celebration is truly Penn State-themed.
I wore the League Intramural long sleeve t-shirt several times in the fall to football games and received a TON of compliments on it. The buttery tri-blend fabric is perfection and the classic silhouette of the shirt pairs perfectly with jeans. The vintage graphic is simple, making it truly a one-of-a-kind piece.
I have always loved the Magnolia Lane line at Lions Pride and this brand-new piece is no exception. Perfect for entertaining at home or tailgating at Beaver Stadium, the platter is designed with subtle dividers that reflect the stripes on an actual football. I don’t know your thoughts, but to me, this platter screams bacon artichoke dip with warm pita bread. YUM!
You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style in League’s Penn State Vineyard crew. Blending traditional vintage design elements with modern style details, this line features garment dyed silhouettes that provide a timeless, weathered look and incredibly soft feel. Made from 100% cotton, the classic logo and perfect fit of this item guarantees that it will appeal to Penn State fans both young and old.
Since I shared my favorite new ladies jacket with you, I find it only appropriate to also share with you my favorite new men’s outerwear piece. Nike’s packable woven jacket is perfect for the Blue-White game because it provides versatility. This item packs conveniently into a zippered pouch and is also water resistant. It is truly the go-to jacket for the on-the -go-fan.
Have a safe and fun Blue-White weekend, Nittany Nation. WE ARE!
