Mermaid Favorites Posted on 30 Mar 21:11

We at The Tropical Mermaid asked some of our Brand Reps to tell us their favorite things about Mermaids and their Tails! Millie lives in the UK with her little sister, Pixie, and sometimes they dress up as mermaids together! 

Millie says her favorite thing about being a mermaid is it makes her feel magical and, in her own words, "very special and beautiful."

Her favorite activity to do while wearing her Mermaid Tail blanket is read books about princesses, unicorns and, of course, mermaids!

Millie's favorite thing about The Tropical Mermaid is "everything! The Tails are incredibly beautiful, there is a wide selection of tails, tops and other items and P is a very talented & beautiful lady inside and out!" 

We love seeing Millie, and all our Mermaids, in our Tails and it is wonderful to find out, in their own words, what they love about being Mermaids! 


Welcome to The Tropical Mermaid! Posted on 01 Jun 21:43

Welcome to our store! 

We are so happy you found your way to our place. I am P, the creator of the mermaid tail towels and blankets! My obsession with mermaids started when I was a little girl living near the ocean in Caribbean. We used to hear folk stories of men disappearing into the caribbean sea because of the songs of mermaids calling to them. It has been a fascinating journey finally putting my love for mermaids and the ocean into a store where people could share in the love I have for them too!

I was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer in 2013 and that year was the year I was stuck at home. Being an active photojournalist and avid traveler, I had to settle for staying home and doing things with my hands and that is when my daughter asked for a mermaid tail blanket for her to watch the little mermaid in. Through my chemotherapy, I became an even more expert sewer (i've been sewing with my grandmother since 7 years old) and we came up with several designs for the tails. The terry cloth towels were also created then, for her to use while she went to the pool with her daddy while I stayed home and recovered. I had a small shop during that time but was forced to shut it down due to my health conditions deteriorating.

Now, 2 years later, I can say I'm healthy, strong and active again! I opened my Penny + Lev store back up with more drive than ever before. This store for me is a celebration of life. Everything is bright, cheerful and filled with life! 

We hope you love our items as much as we love creating them! Celebrate Life with us!
