The Martha Poncho Returns With Help From David Spade

Posted on September 21, 2005

For those who loved Martha Stewart's poncho that she wore when she got out of prison (another inmate made it for her), yet were not one of the thousands of women who got the pattern and knitted it herself, there is hope that you too can obtain the Martha Poncho, even if you couldn't knit a poncho to save your life.

Martha had it made up and is selling it on her site for $49.95. It comes in either blue or red, and the proceeds go to some of Martha's favorite charities which help women in need, such as Bottomless Closet in New York City, which assists economically disadvantaged women in New York City with their transition to the workforce, and for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. We like Martha, we like the charities, and if you're into the Mary-Kate and Ashley dumpster diving chic thing this is clearly the must-have item.

David Spade even wore one when he was a guest on her new show last week. In the episode, Martha arrives in a truck with yarn on top. David Spade arrives on the show in one of the ponchos. The audience also all received ponchos. He is also wearing golden clogs. Spade also has on an ankle bracelet, which is a reference to Martha's house arrest. Martha removed it. Then she taught David the secret of how to fold a shirt.

Update:: David Spade also wore a similar poncho when he played Martha Stewart on Saturday Night Live. Take a look:
