Behind The Scenes: Windy City Live

Behind The Scenes: Windy City Live


The holidays are a great time for giving the loved ones in your life that special gift that’s simply perfect for their personality and style, and Peepers is pleased to offer a vast array of trendy and traditional eyewear sure to please all the recipients on your holiday list.  We’re even more thrilled when we get the chance to showcase some of our favorite models for a live studio audience and TV viewers at home, as we did on Chicago’s own Windy City Live on ABC 7 this holiday season.


What went down at the taping of the show?  We’re happy to offer you an exclusive, behind the scenes look at our recent appearance and provide a sneak peek of the fun and festivity that ensued!


How Did it Happen?

We know that a lot of celebrities and TV personalities love our readers and sunglasses – after all, Peepers has been featured on Oprah’s Favorite Things  three years running.  As it turns out, Windy City Live host Val Warner is also a huge fan of our fun, unique, and sophisticated eyewear, which she frequently wears on the show.  


When the show asked us to participate in their annual Holiday Hot Picks segment, we knew we couldn’t turn down an avid Peepers fan, or the chance to spread holiday cheer with the perfect gifts from our growing collection.  We happily agreed to put together a display and appear on the show with some of our most popular Peepers.



What Did We Bring?

It was hard to pick the very best pairs of Peepers to showcase on Windy City Live – all of our eyewear is unique and exceptional, from the graceful and glittery Foxy Mama frames, to the fun and funky Good Times model.  In the end, however, we had to go with a perennial favorite to feature on the show:  the bold and breathtaking Shine On frames.


These chunky beauties come in a wide array of colors, from classic tortoise and black, to colorful pink and green, to the trendiest neutrals of late, brown and taupe.  A subtle shimmer infuses the frames, while a high-shine channel of embedded glitter running along the top ridge of the front makes your eyes truly pop.


Part of our unique Focus™ Eyewear collection, these beneficial readers help to filter and minimize harmful blue light from your many mobile devices and provide UV400 protection on un-tinted lenses.  Even better, we also brought along our Shine On Sunglasses, to show that even our hottest styles can be worn inside and out.


We really enjoyed participating in the Holiday Hot Picks segment on Windy City Live – showing off our favorite frames, meeting everyone at the show, and especially interacting with the audience.  We think the audience enjoyed it too, since we sent them all home with a free pair of Peepers to spice up their own holiday ensembles and truly Shine On!
