Before the invention of sunglasses, rock 'n' roll musicians' trademark mystique was spoiled by constant, inescapable direct eye contact. Play it cool with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $70 worth of sunglasses, sandals, T-shirts and more from Palmetto Shades.
Palmetto Shades, located in the heart of Clemson University, houses a spectrum of sunglasses, shoes, T-shirts and more from brands such as Jimmy Choo, Kaenon, and Costa Del Mar. Suncloud's Fantasy, Runway, and Daybreak styles evoke old Hollywood glamour with large rounded frames for ladies ($49 each), and Tonette sunglasses from Electric complement contemporary vision in a selection of bright, punchy colors ($69). The thick, clear arms on Oakley's Batwolf sunglasses in the Clear/Ice option keep men's temples visible at all times, and its bright blue lenses block out 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC light, and intimidate natural predators ($120). Classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer styles in colors such as black, tortoise, honey, light blue, and camo green can suit eyes of any gender ($119+).
Palmetto Shades also lavishes attention upon feet with sandals from Olukai, Rainbow, and other brands ($36+) and coddles craniums with Skull Candy headphones ($14.95+). The eyewear emporium's staff also fixes, adjusts, and cleans sunglasses' lenses, arms, and consciences.
