Tommy Bahama, a lifestyle brand that captures the island spirit in its wide range of clothing, footwear, and home décor collections, celebrates its 20th anniversary with a year-long campaign called “Paradise Goes Platinum,” where customers can win exclusive access to experiences that reflect the company’s motto: “Make Life One Long Weekend.” The company is currently giving away access to spring escapes that are emblematic of the brand’s island-enthused world. Past offerings were a trip to the 2013 Food and Wine Classic in Aspen, Colorado, and a seven-day trip to Hawaii for two.

Tommy Bahama at a glance

The company started in 1992. A year later, the tropical-printed men’s shirt became men’s favorite shirt, which would soon be found on Kevin Costner in the film Tin Cup. Following the opening of the first Tommy Bahama retail store and restaurant in Naples, Florida, the brand introduced its footwear collection and began international distribution. The brand had expanded into accessories and sportswear until it was acquired by Oxford Industries in 2003.
