Go forth, merry historical holiday shoppers, and order a pair of Pemberlies, the perfect Regency shoe, for your Jane Austen-obsessed love one, or treat yourself!
November 25 – December 9
Ordering is UNLIMITED, on all women’s USA sizes 6 through 12, including half sizes.
Orders of 5 + receive the special pre-order price, plus quantity and shipping discounts.
Delivery in early 2012.
*We need to sell just over 100 pairs of Pemberlies in order to manufacture them. If we don’t meet that goal, all of you who did order will have to be refunded in full, and the Pemberlies will be canceled. If this is the Regency shoe of your dreams, please share, blog, tweet, tumble, stumble, and pass the news along.*
And when you share, you could win….
About the Prize:
The “Pemberley” Regency shoes are closely based on extant footwear from the 1790s through 1810. The smooth, dyable, hand-sewn leather upper is designed to be lovely enough for formal occasions, and durable enough for walking in the countryside. Particular attention was paid to the point of the toe, as well as the other hallmarks of Regency historical footwear, with the main goals being both historical accuracy and all-day comfort
How to Enter the Drawing:
2. Tweet about the pre-sale – on Twitter, just copy and paste this into your tweetbox:
“Pemberley” Regency Leather Shoes are now available for Pre-Sale! http://www.american-duchess.com/s/2484
Be sure to leave a link to your tweet in the comments section of this post, so you are entered into the giveaway.
3. Facebook about the pre-sale – Post a link to www.american-duchess.com on your Facebook page, and leave a comment on this post to enter the drawing.
4. Share in any other way – share a link to www.american-duchess.com using any other method, such as Digg, StumbleUpon, Google+, etc. Leave a comment on this post, so you are entered in the drawing.
*If you do all of these things, you will be entered each time, just leave as many comments on this post as places you shared.
The winner will be selected by random number generator on December 2, and will be sent their shoes in early 2012, when the new shipment arrives. *Please note that if the Pemberley style is canceled due to not enough support, the winner of the giveaway will not receive their shoes. 🙁
Thank you, Ladies and Laddies! I appreciate all your participation and involvement in making this new style happen!

Hi! I posted about them on Pinterest, which I know is not one of the options in your post, but I thought I would suggest it as an venue for advertisement in this situation – a lot of people are trolling Pinterest these days. I generally wouldn't recommend advertising on Pinterest to keep it from getting to commercial, but your shoes are definitely worth putting on an inspiration board!
Leighanna RoseNovember 30, 2011 at 10:28 PM

I don't blog, but I do recommend your shoes to everyone. I did just post a link on Facebook to the Regency shoes. I hope you have enough orders to create these shoes. I am not ready to reenact 1790-1810 YET, but the time is coming soon. I hope you will have these shoes when I am ready!
[email protected]December 1, 2011 at 11:52 PM
I've been promoting your shoes via my FB page http://www.facebook.com/beckyr.sawyer
since you told us about them! I really hope that you get enough orders. Oh yeah, I ordered a pair last night along with some shoe clips. Good luck! I loved my Georgies and can't wait for the Pemberelys.
