Everybody Gets a Penny Marshall Shirt

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Get your Penny Marshall shirt right here but read below for the discount codes


Penny Marshall did immense work in broadening the possibilities for women in Hollywood. Starting with her performance in the TV show Laverne & Shirley and then as a director of such classic movies as Big and A League of Their Own, Penny Marshall showed a generation of women that they too could do anything they set their minds to. Just check out Nik Wojcik’s wonderful tribute to see what I mean.

If you’ve noticed, we like to give out free shirts when icons pass away. We did this first with Prince, and then Muhammad AliCarrie Fisher, Leonard Cohen, Anthony Bourdain, Aretha Franklin, Stan Lee, and more. All folks gotta do is pay for shipping, handling and cost of the shirt. I make $0 profit on these. 

We do this because it’s awesome to literally put a shirt on someone’s back. But we also do it because we figure, if you get one shirt for free, maybe you’ll buy one of the other great things from the store as well (all orders over $40 get FREE shipping). Running a this site is expensive and every little bit helps. Regardless of whether or not folks end up buying other stuff though, it feels really good to be able to give something to people that they really love.

Just use the code “DEFAZIO” for the fellas’ cut and and “PEACHES” for the ladies’ cut.

I hope you all wear the hell out of this awesome Penny Marshall shirt.
