At Lime Ricki, we’re all about the holidays, and especially Christmas sweaters. For the past couple years, we’ve given you our recommendations on where to buy your ugly Christmas sweater (read 2014 and 2015’s posts), and this year we’ll do the same – except this time, we’ll also show you ours and let you in on where we scored them!

We had our party a few days ago to get a jump on the holidays, and everyone on our team had such diverse sweaters! We all loved hearing the stories about where each girl got her’s and why she fell in love with it.

“Mine was found at a wonderful outing to Walmart!  I walked up and down the isles when all of sudden I was pulled by an energetic force to a rack that had my sweat(shirt)er!  It was hanging on a hanger which I was super excited for because the sweater came with those cool stretch marks around the neck from the hanger!” – Jenn (left)

” I got my sweater from a gift exchange my senior year of high school. It’s my go to Christmas sweater, Savers for the win! It’s extra fun because it looks it was sewn with tinsel. ” – Olivia (left)

“My cat sweater is from Christopher & Banks a few years ago when I was scouring their sale racks right after Christmas. It even used to have a faux undershirt sewn into the collar, but I cut that out because it bothered me so much. I probably should have left it though, so it would be even ‘uglier!'” – Shannon (middle)

“Mine is a vintage DI sweater…. I found it there several years ago in the spring when I was with my daughter during one of her scavenging escapades, and when I saw it, I knew I had to have it! It was before the Ugly Christmas Sweater was really a thing, and I promise, it was uglier then. It has gone to many a Christmas party, and has been worn by males and females alike.” – Colette (right)
