What is a Hanky Panky? Hanky Panky is a women’s intimate apparel brand that specializes in lace underwear specifically. Originally back in 1977 Gale Epstein created a handmade lingerie set for one of her friends out of handkerchiefs… hence the name! The brand now also includes camis, bodysuits, and their After Midnight collection with a new level of intimacy having split gusset panties.
Fun Fact: Hanky Panky is manufactured and designed here in the United States. This is uncommon as many vendors manufacture their goods overseas.
One of the first stores to bring on Hanky Panky was Lord & Taylor back in 1977, for the 5th Avenue Flagship location. They’ve stayed a match made in heaven and are still on the sales floor today. Forty years have flown by, and it became time to celebrate their 40th birthday. To celebrate, there was an exclusive print created by the artist Dallas Shaw. This print, along with other classic colors and patterns were available for purchase on the first floor of Lord & Taylor. You could even personalize your underwear and have decorative pieces sewn on. My favorite parts of the celebration were the lavender lemonade and the photobooth.
