    Helen (on the left) is being entertained by Penny (on the right). You can have a penny arcade which is very entertaining like Penny and Helen (whose face is partially visible in the photo) is clearly like the Helen of classical Greek legend a famous beauty.

    I think Penny is on the right side! Fits better the blue Jacket. I love The North Face jackets, but it┤s hard from Portugal to recognize them!

    God luck for me, thanks

    Now here's a true story, I walked into the North Face shop in Cabot Circus, Bristol this morning & asked something like, "I don't suppose you've got like an ultra-light-wind-&-shower-proof-jacket-that-squashes-down-into-nothing that's good for those times caught out by dodgy weather whilst out on my road bike?" The sales assistant grinned, made some comment to his colleague & slid across the store to where the Verto's were hanging. "I think this is what you are looking for, just in yesterday. They're wicked (or something)"

    Anyway, Helen is the one wearing the striking North Face jacket & Penny is wearing the erm... fetching North Face coat. Now come on, you know I'm right.

    Surely a Penny would wear a Purple and Pink jacket, so that leaves Helen with the Turquoise...

    Penny is the one on the left and Helen is on the right. I think it is because you mentioned Penny first.

    Yeah, but I might have thought of that and swapped them around, quite sophisticated we are here on OM

    Helen is on the right, because the lighter jacket is a more nautical colour and everybody knows Helen launched a thousand ships. No-one ever did that in a purple jacket.

    I say Penny likes purple so is on the left. That leaves Helen in blue on the right.

    I can only assume that Penny and Helen are human equivilant names of two great UK mountains ? Pen y Fan and Helvellyn. As they stand, Helvellyn is taller making Penny the one to the West Face of the shot in purple!

    PH is that something to do with acidity/alkalinity.
    So if it was acid dididnt it turn purple so penny subsequently is on the left.
    Can't think of anything witty sorry

    Penny is wearing blue, Helen is wearing purple.

    My reason, Penny appears on another site holding a nice blue jacket...

    The only way I could possibly tell is to study the meaning of names.

    Helen... meaning torch, corposant, St Elmo's fire, a visible electric discharge on a pointed object... ?

    Penny... diminutive of Penelope... Possibly derived from Greek ¤?╬Ě╬Ż╬Á╬╗╬┐¤? (penelops), a type of duck... or maybe Pene the weaver ... dream weaver... ?

    So one of these two is an electric torch. The other is a duck weaver.

    Obvious really. Penny's on the right as we look at the picture and Helen's on the left. Far too easy

    My choice would be: Helen in deep purple and Penny in light blue. Reason: Penny looks like a Penny I googled.
