Stripes has unveiled two new 2018 limited edition Selena cups just in time for Fiesta de la Flor! Stripes took to their Facebook page this morning with a video featuring the new cups.

The cups will go on sale Saturday, April 7 at 9 a.m. at stores across Texas and Louisiana. The cups will be priced at $2.99 and there will be a limit of four cups per person. Like the 2017 cups, portions of the proceeds will go to the Selena Foundation. 

Stripes worked with Selena’s sister, Suzette, to create the new designs. One of the designs is a watercolor painting of the late Tejano star by a New York artist.

"I am excited to work with Stripes again on these beautiful commemorative cups of my sister featuring Selena’s image," Suzette said. "One of the designs this year is a watercolor painting created by New York artist Santi Siguenza, and it’s also our official logo for the 2018 Fiesta de La Flor event." 

The black and white cup with a black lid features a close-up of Selena’s face with her logo in red and her signature white rose. The water-color cup with a purple lid is a commissioned art piece designed by New York artist San Sigü Enza and was created especially for the 2018 Fiesta de la Flor event. Each cup features the Stripes and Fiesta de la Flor logo and is BPA free.

The cups will also be available for purchase at Fiesta de la Flor on Friday, April 13 and Saturday, April 14. There will be a limit of one cup per person at the event. 

The cups are expected to sell out quickly.
