Two new limited-edition cups celebrating 25 years of Tejano star Selena's legacy will soon be available.

The collectible cups will go on sale Feb. 29 at 9 a.m. at participating Stripes stores across Texas.

The designers worked with Selena's sister, Suzette Quintanilla, to create this year's designs.

"I am excited to finally share the 2020 Stripes Selena Cups, the 25th Year Collection, with her fans," she said. "These commemorative cups represent Selena's legacy that continues to inspire all who love her."

The first two cups designs are uniquely different from each other as one cup design features original artwork from Christa Palazzolo, an artist inspired by the Latin superstar.

The cup named “Selena, Painting” comes with a purple glitter flip-lid. The original painting, “Selena, Lake Jackson, 2015”, is permanently displayed in a North Austin hotel, as part of the Texas Music Collection.

The second cup, “Selena Legend”, features 25 years of celebrating Selena’s legacy and career.

This cup comes with a bright yellow flip-lid.

“This is our fourth year to partner with the Quintanilla family, on the release of the Selena commemorative cup collection,” said Brad Williams, Senior Vice President of 7-Eleven (Stripes Stores). “This year marks 25 years of celebrating Selena’s legacy as a music icon and creative artist. To make this year even more special, Selena’s sister, Suzette, selected an original painting to be featured on one of the cups and uniquely designed the collection to reflect Selena’s legacy.”

Customers are limited to six cups per person.
