We are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day early with today’s Throwback Thursday post! I love Ireland and have visited it many times – so dolls decked out in Irish inspired outfits always make me smile.

From Heather H – Only the 2 dolls on the ends are wearing retired outfits: Lissie is in her riding habit, and Sara is wearing a Magic Attic dress. The girls in the middle are wearing Celtic gowns made by Carpatina.

Also from Heather – This is an incomplete American Girl retired Irish dance outfit that Nellie is wearing.

Madelon’s dolls are ready for St. Patrick’s Day in one of a kind dresses.

From Eva K. – This is a photo of Nellie (2004-2009) wearing her Irish dance outfit of today. This outfit was part of the dance outfits of today that American Girl did in 2005. You got a girl sized accessory (like a headband) plus trading cards with the outfit for only $28!


  • March 19 – Any of American Girl Caroline – she is not retired yet, but being a historical doll, she qualifies as a Throwback
  • March 26 – Retired EASTER inspired dolls or outfits – any brand, any size doll
  • April 2 – Retired American Girl of the Year Jess and any of her collection
