So many of our customers continuously ask to have the Ava Racer return, and we listened! This is such a classic, ultra feminine hoodie that instantly dresses up any outfit. The Ava Racer first appeared in the Evy’s Tree world in Spring 2014 and was one of our first manufactured hoodies. We were blown away at the softness and comfort that we got with this beauty. The first two Ava Racers both featured the grey hoodie fabric; one with a cream lace design and the other with the slightly edgier black lace. The Chantilly lace design covers the entire front of the hoodie and is the matching lining in the hood.

These sold out so quickly that it took our breath away! We were finally able to bring the Ava Racer back in the winter of 2014; this time, in a heavier winter fabric for colder temperatures. The Holiday Red Ava Racer was a perfect party-ready, brilliant, Christmas-red hoodie material and black lace design.

Again, the Ava was a smash hit. So much so, that for pure nostalgic enjoyment, Amy decided to bring back the Cream Ava Racer as a special Holiday ‘throwback’ in Winter 2015. Of course it was gone before we knew it!
Ava Racer in Cream – back for Holiday 2015
We are thrilled to bring you the Ava Racer again for our Spring 2016 lineup; the Ava Racer in Lilac!
What is the same?
The Lilac Ava Racer has the same, light-weight (perfect for hot summer climates with great arm protection!) hoodie material. It is the same much-loved. super soft, hoodie with cream Chantilly lace in the front. The yoke is curved and the hood is also lined with lace. Don’t forget the pockets and the thumbholes!
What is different?
This Ava appears in gentle Lilac, such a perfect Summer color! We switched the sleeves to a raglan style to mix it up a bit.

The Ava Racer is considered true to size; the fabric is slightly loose but the lace detail prevents too much stretch across the torso. Size down if you want a more fitted look, size up if you’re in between sizes or if you’re curvier in the chest, or stay in your normal size if you like the way it looks on the ladies above. We have noticed that this newer Ava is tighter in the chest area compared to the last Ava, as there is more lace added above the shoulder.
Care Instructions:We recommend machine washing, zipped up, inside out, on cold gentle cycle with like colors in a lingerie bag, no bleach, and laying flat to dry. Low iron if necessary. For more laundry/care tips, please see our FAQ section (under the About Us tab).
The Ava Racer in Lilac is LIVE and available for sale. The Ava Racer will begin to ship on April 12. Let us know if you have any questions!
