After kicking off the holiday specials on Cyber Monday the last two years, this year Her Universe moves to Black Friday at midnight for the launch. Through December 2 it’s free shipping on all U.S. orders, and the exclusive holiday pin is another limited edition of 1,000 – so order fast or you might miss it! New products for this year’s holiday shopping include the Hope hoodie and Millennium Falcon pencil skirt for Star Wars, a Live Long and Prosper hoodie for Star Trek, and the “Tardi-gan” for Doctor Who, among others.
In other Her Universe news, Ashley Eckstein just announced that Her Universe now has an Official Shop on Amazon, giving fangirls yet another venue to discover Her Universe geek chic. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, the shipping discounts apply.
Also this week, Her Universe and ThinkGeek announced the winner of the “Make It Sew” contest to design a Star Trek shirt:
Out of the hundreds of entries, the judges chose one epic submission. Enter Jeremy Sniatecki with his winning “EntHERprise” design featuring a creative merging of the original series Starship Enterprise and the classic female gender symbol.
The shirt is now available at ThinkGeek just in time for the holidays.
