Purple Haiku Contest Winner – Purple Haiku Poem

Purple Haiku Mountain

We have a winner for our Purple Haiku Review contest!

A little background:  Because Yelp’s system reportedly hides positive reviews from businesses that don’t pay to advertise with them, all the great Yelp reviews from our customers are hidden. Our only review displaying on Yelp is a haiku that seems favorable, listing things we sell and then, randomly, giving us two stars for no reason.  We’re guessing the guy who wrote it may never even have been to our store or purchased anything from our website (or he figured out that the only way to show a good review is to give it low stars!). So we asked our fans to come up with some great purple haiku poems responding to his review.

And the winner is…

Why only 2 stars?
I give praise to Purple Store!
Hmmmmm….Green fan, perhaps?
-Michelle from Oxnard, California

Other Great Haiku We Received from our Customers!

Directly Responding to the Yelp Review:

Jon from Seattle
what’s up with the random knocks?
the Purple Store rocks
-Eric M

Jon’s words are untrue,
though they form a Haiku.
Don’t let them scare you!
-Sally G

The Five Stars that you deserve
My review hidden

Without a truth to confess
He makes Yelp a mess
-Sally G

An irrelevant haiku?
Yelp, that’s so not cool
-K. Szakoyni

Purple is awesome!
If you hate purple, then why?
It doesn’t make sense!?!?
-Maureen T

don’t listen to Jon
I think he just hates purple
and that is just wrong
-Eric M

Jon S. you don’t know…
Yelp’s ratings don’t make it so!
Purple people glow!
-Sally G

I know and you know
apparently Jon does not
purple is POWER
-Eric M

Yelp gives us no cause;
For to believe in their clause
We must forego laws.
-Sally G


Someone Was Really Observant:


We had no idea our t-shirttote bag, and sticker ”Anything Purple Is Mine…” slogan works as a haiku!  Nice job Morgan for noticing this!


Everything purple
Is mine everything else can
Be dyed or painted.
-Morgan R

George Clooney with Purple Hair

Nicole Ritchie has recently joined the rank of a growing list of celebrities who have dyed their hair purple, and we have to say that the results are just gorgeous!

So far, for the most part, only pop stars have been brave enough to don purple locks, often times to great results. We’ll let you be the judge of who pulls purple hair off better:

Katy Perry arguably started it all, but you can't say it didn't look gorgeous!

We obviously hope this trend continues and thought it might be fun to picture what some of our favorite famous people would look like with purple hair.

First up, George Clooney looks just as distinguished with purple hair:

Still looks dapper as all getup!

Jennifer Lawrence is possibly even more loveable with purple locks:!

So adorable!

Instead of going blue, Betty White prefers to go purple:

She might be older than sliced bread, but she’s still young enough to rock purple!

Sean Connery shows us that there are plenty of ways to wear your purple hair:

How do you say “purple” with a Welsh accent?

Nobody pulls off purple hair like Samuel L. Jackson:

Also rocked the Purple Lightsaber

Love him or hate him, the most powerful man in the world could do with a little more purple power:

They aren't red states or blue states, but how about purple states?

And of course you’ve been rocking purple hair this whole time! Did you know you were a trendsetter?

Find the Perfect Purple Christmas Tree at the Purple Store

Whether you’re moving into your first dorm room or finally getting to have the purple Christmas you’ve dreamed of in the house you’ve lived in for 30 years, The Purple Store has the right tree for you! Check out our list below to find the perfect purple Christmas tree!

2-foot or Christmas Tree in Purple and White or Purple and Gold.

K-State-2ft-Xmas-tree_1001pxSold Out Purple and Gold Tree

This 2-foot tree adds a lot of Christmas spirit to a smaller space. They’re the perfect choice to brighten up a dorm room or bring some Christmas cheer to anyone who has to spend their holiday in the hospital. Bonus points if you get one in the appropriate school colors!

If you have a little extra space, try the 3-foot Purple and White or the 3-foot Purple and Gold tree!


4-Foot Christmas Trees

We have four different options for 4-foot Christmas trees. 4-foot trees are perfect for apartments without a lot of space, or any home in which you want a tree that you can easily set up and not have to move around a lot of furniture. There’s still plenty of room under them for presents or more decorations. All of them come pre-lit, so you can just hang your favorite ornaments on them, and you’re ready to go!

For a slightly more “natural-looking” tree, go for the 4-foot Winter Twilight tree, or the 4.5-Foot Ash Tree. If you want your tree to just be as purple as possible, the 4-Foot Tinsel Stylized tree and the 4-Foot Tiffany tree are as purple as can be!

Full-size Christmas Trees

With these 6-foot to 7.5-foot Christmas trees, you can finally have the purple Christmas of your dreams. They have plenty of room to hang all of your favorite decorations, and will immediately be a conversation piece for anyone visiting your home.

The 6-foot tall Purple and White tree is feels extra wintery with its white branches. The tree is not pre-lit, so there’s plenty of space to bring your purple Christmas ideas to life with the lights you want, and your purple decorations will stand out brilliantly against the white branches.

The 7.5-foot Narrow Profile Ash tree is ideal for fitting into narrower spaces. You don’t have to move the couch much to find a space for this tree, but there’s still plenty of room on it for decorations.

The 7.5-Foot Tiffany tree is our brightest, shiniest tree. This tinsel tree sparkles in the light. It comes pre-lit, but the more lights you add, the more it radiates. It practically sparkles when it’s next to a flickering fireplace.


7.5-Foot Tiffany Tree

The 7.5-Foot “Feathered Winter Twilight” tree is designed to look like a real tree that’s been turned purple. This classic-looking tree is perfect for those who want a classic-looking tree with a purple twist.

The 7.5-foot Ash tree is our biggest tree! The base is 57 inches wide and has 1,350 tips for all of your ornaments. Tell your friends to bring their ornaments over as well and have a big communal Christmas tree full of pieces from all of your friends and family!
