March Madness

‘Harry Potter Scarves’ Selling Out as Ramblers Gear Up for Sweet 16

Loyola School of CommunicationLoyola fans have been filling the stands throughout March Madness and they may have even more to cheer about as the lower seeds continue to pull off upsets.

Loyola’s iconic maroon and gold rugby scarves are flying off the shelves at on-campus bookstores and online as fans gear up for the Ramblers’ first appearance in the Sweet 16 since 1985.

 

The scarves, noted by both fans and newcomers to Loyola athletics for their resemblance to those worn by the Gryffindor house in the “Harry Potter” series, have been selling out, according to Lake Shore Campus bookstore employee Jay Little.

“We can’t keep them on the shelves,” Little said. “[They’re] insanely popular. It probably is our best selling item … We’ve gotten thousands of orders online and in the store and can’t keep up with demand.”

 

Little said they’re expecting more scarves to arrive at some point this afternoon, but said he expects the new shipment will sell out just as quickly.
