Wonderful Luck of the Irish (Or is it the French?)

With both St. Patrick's Day and the first day of Spring looming (and assuming everyone needs extra luck around tax time) FA2L reminds readers that not everything chez Hermès costs a king's ransom–this chic little key chain is available online for just $140. As to whether a four-leaf clover (or its handmade leather equivalent) will actually improve your chances of winning at cards, getting ahead at work or being lucky in love, who knows why particular superstitions take hold of our imaginations and never let go? What's certain is that such a talisman, offered as a present, carries built-in wishes for all good things. And that's a charming thought, in more ways than one.
