Vivacious Velvet TSV & Susan Graver PIN to WIN!

Posted by Susan Graver 1352843423.24

One of my favorite fashion trends for the holiday season is soft, silky, stretch velvet. I know it's your favorite too, so I'm thrilled to share my newest velvet design with you, A228158 - Susan Graver Stretch Velvet Ruched 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan & Tank Set


The cardigan is classically styled to be worn with the coordinating tank, or worn separately over a ruffled blouse or sleeveless dress. Together or separately, the options are limitless. I especially enjoy wearing the set casually with jeans or with my newest, most flattering, velvet maxi skirt (also coming Thursday!). I know you will love the ultra soft feel and flow of my velvet with lots of stretch for added comfort. Once you indulge yourself in my velvet, you will never want to be without it.

I am also VERY excited to be the first brand at QVC to launch a Pinterest Contest! It's so easy to enter (click the link below) and you could be the lucky winner of a Graver bangle!

Susan Graver PIN to WIN Pinterest Contest!

Please join me for great holiday designs and beyond... Thursday at MIDNIGHT, 3AM, 9AM, 3PM and 7PM ET!

I just received two more 3/4 sleeve butterknit tops and OMG Love love love them {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}. I've ordered liquid knit as well and while I love them both I am more partial to the butterknit. And I just received my first order of the leggins with the little buttons on the side and I have to tell you comfy,nice perfect fit wow love them as well. I got them in the Navy and really wanted the grey I hope you bring them back. I am 5"4 like you Smile and I can wear your small and or extra small tops. They run very generous in size and in the leggins I got the small and they were perfect. When I can't watch your show I DVR it but do my best to watch when your on. I've not been disapointed yet with any of your tops and now love the leggins bring more please Smile. Just wanted to thank you for the yummy as you say tops :) butterknit is the way to go oh and liquid knit {#emotions_dlg.thumbup1}

Susan -- I like the look of your TSV in velvet, but those rushed sleeves....I wonder why all of a sudden ALL your sleeved tops have rushed sleeves??? I wish you would go back to the regular sleeve. For one, it makes the sleeve shorter and for two, I think it looks like there was a loose thread, someone pulled it and the material got all bunched up!!! It makes me think twice before I order from your line because I do not want anything with rushed sleeves. Not a look for me!! PS - I own many items from your line....I especially like the butter knit or liquid knit to wear under jackets, vests and coats-- great layering pieces!!

Susan..you seem to be a very nice person...but seriously-equating buying your faux leather jacket with "saving the earth" is ridiculous and I'm sure will turn off a sizable chunk of your fans and potential fans. Or at least those who have a clue. Faux leather is derived from fossil fuels..and that certainly wouldn't deter me from buying it...but saving the earth? And who cares what Stella McCartney does..I'm sure she is still driving a car and flying on airplanes.

I love velvet for the holiday season and have many pieces. This one has 3/4 sleeves AGAIN and it's a deal-breaker for me. It's cold and I want long sleeves!!!

Susan, what bracelet were you wearing during the 7:00-8:00 show with Jane? It was beautiful!

I second the suggestion for LONG SLEEVES. It gets mighty cold here in Michigan!

Hi Susan...Is there a chance we could get some SLEEVLESS, LIQUID OR BUTTER KNIT MOCK TURTLENECKS? We could get twice the mileage out of our tops during fall and winter. I have asked this question for three years with no answer. Would be the perfect layering piece for winter. All colors for me as I have three double closets of Susan Graver tops on cascading hangers. I would like to see not just the dark colors, but bright and vidid colors also. You are my last hope I guess, and was so glad to hear you say..."I read and I listen to you out there". Thanks and have a great holiday season.

I would love to see a maxi skirt in a printed stretch velvet fabric....maybe a paisley or a floral...in the same shape as the aztec printed skirt from the summer...

Hi Susan, Love how the velvet skirt feels. Mine has rubbed off black on my legs today. I am wearing my spanks, and no hose. Oops, would have worn leggings or hose under the skirt, if I had known. I do love all your items, I am addicted to the Susan Graver line. Hugs. JGD

I bought a couple sets of your velvet TSV. People keep mentioning about wearing the 3/4 sleeve jacket with turtle neck/blouses.

The two different lengths will look ok; I have gotten behind in what is acceptable in fashion and having to get caught up?

ponte knit flocked polka dot dress is unbeleivable! I just put it on and Im floored by how great it looks. I have so many of your peices because I dont like to wear structured clothing with zippers and material that doesnt "give" I've tried on dresses that "flare out" at stores but they never fit right and they dont flow like this one does. They never fit right in the waist - either too big or too small. They look good on the hanger but terrible on. You've combined stretch material with high style - thats why this works so well. I hope you make more dresses like this one - I like a more navy blue and reds do not look good on me - I definatley like the tone on tone black with black dots, blue with blue dots - its so subtle. The neckline is beautiful. Id like to see: a deep purple - gray - all tone on tone - Susan Graver designs definately have something for every age group - I dont think your line targets just one

{#emotions_dlg.biggrin} Susan, I just love your clothing line! I particularly like the liquid knit items. They are just so versatile. I can wear them alone or as layering pieces. I love the ruched and 3/4 sleeves, because I usually wear your clothes for work and the shorter sleeves don't get in my way and show off my bracelets! I just got the velvet TSV-I ordered three sets-blue, black, and grey. I think the stretch velvet is going to be a new favorite. I also love your prints and colors and the way they fit! They are "figure flattering" like you say. I don't like turtlenecks unless I'm going to be outside in the cold, but I think I'm going to try one of your ruched neck liquid knit turtlenecks. It will be good for displaying jewelry in winter time. Thank you for your fabulous clothes!!!

OMG i wish she would not talk so much!! She is so annoying she just dosen't shut up. I purchased one of her faux leather jackets and the smell is terrible. The coat is cheap and very fake. All her things are made in China!! Come on Susan try keeping work here!! I would never purchase anything from her

The velvet is thin. It does not hang well and looks very cheap! Just sayin....

I am wearing the chocolate brown tunic with the wide waistband matching pants. I am cooking today and this is comfy and dressy at the same time! Just sayin'{#emotions_dlg.thumbup1}

I don't think its cheap looking at all-- I really wonder why you would want a thick velvet-- it would be difficult to move around and it would make you look heavier!{#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}

A happy Thanksgiving to all!

The material doesn't need to be thick. It just needs enough substance to hang properly and not look cheap.

Susan, You are such a gifted designer! I agree with another blogger, that we need more of your Butterknits, please!

One suggestion I make with respect- You do not need to "overserll" in your ever-increasing frenetic dancing, swishing, talking way too loudly over the host. You are totally forgetting your designs are "lady-like", dignified and speak for themselves. You have become a distraction! We mute the TV and enjoy your fashions rather than get a headache from the screaching.

Trust yourself as the talented designer you are NOT the sidewalk hustler you seem to be.

Be a "lady".

susan, love your new velvet and the tsv. however, i am dissapointed that you did not make a classic vest in velvet for the holiday,s. not long and flowing but v-neck and hip length or finger tip length. please consider this, have been looking for a black one for years.

thanks so much,
