Spring Safari!!!

Posted on March 23, 2010 in More Fun by | 9 comments

Janie has been dying to dish the details on the Spring Safari and now she finally can! We can’t believe we’ve managed to keep it on the DL for this long…


I NEED A DRESS. EEEEE. A black tie (aka in Lilly Land = LILLY OR LOUDER), red carpet, New York City, dinner and dancing DRESS. I am going to have you help me with the details. Please, please,  please read on and vote. As Fashion Director I should just make what I want but I want to know what you think is the cutest!!!!! It’s more fun to do it together anyways.

So big, big, big news is that Lilly is the official fashion sponsor for the American Museum of Natural History’s Spring Event. OF COURSE with all of our PROTECTIVE PRINTS for Spring we have renamed the event….drum roll please…Spring Safari!

Here’s the invite, isn’t it TDF. Soooo many celebs are going – and the who’s who of NYC. I am very excited because I have friends coming in from Chicago, and many friends from NYC alllll buying tickets. It will be a HOOT.

(All the info will be on the Lilly website VERY soon!!)

To give you an idea of the space we’re working with, the sit down dinner will be held in the Hall of African Mammals, followed by dancing and drinks in the Hall of Ocean Life. It is incredible.

So, back to me. A dress! I knew right away that I wanted to use the Pandamonium print. Also knew I wanted some kind of PINK SASH. So we have choice A: front sash or B: center pink trim. What will make me look THE MOST CHIC AND GORG. I feel like the long is so old school Lilly…designed JUST FOR ME by one of our print designers (JEFF! The grumpy one J).




I will tweet all night from the party. It’s not till April 15th but I am already in a tiz. Vote fast for the dress, we need to MAKE IT! Custom Lilly just for me. Aren’t you jealous! Next-up…hair and make-up, have to get that sorted. AND SHOES. A bag? OK, time to stop typing and get to the very important business of planning my outfit. More later.

I vote for B….although you can’t go wrong with either. B seems more “Original Lilly” to me. It will be such fun to follow you
at the event!
