Get Wrapped Up In A Good Cause!

Our dear friends at In the Pink have a very special murfee scarf you won’t hesitate to add to your collection…

“Beautiful on the inside” means using your energy in ways that bring meaning to your life – something that us Lilly Lovers know all about as our colorful clothing creates beauty & meaning  both on the outside AND the inside! This is exactly why the Lilly Pulitzer Print Designers collaborated with In the Pink owner, Gordon Russell, to create a FABULOUS print to benefit New England-based nonprofit MitoAction. MitoAction works to improve the quality of life for patients and families living with “Mito.”

In 2008, Gordon’s late wife, Sandra K. Russell, lost her battle to Mitochondrial disease – a life-threatening condition in which a patient’s energy is depleted due to dysfunctional cells. Honoring Sandra’s memory and all the patients living with Mito, the Lilly Print Designers created a print inspired by the image of a human genome, special in design and personal meaning…  AND they put this print on a MURFEE SCARF! With the purchase of a Mito Murfee you will also receive a MitoAction pin, info, and bag– in addition to supporting a wonderful cause.  100% of proceeds from this limited edition scarf will benefit MitoAction!

In even further exciting news, In the Pink’s Nantucket store will be hosting an in-store celebration to launch this very special Murfee on Thursday, July 29th from 3-7 PM. MitoAction’s Executive Director, Cristy Balcells, will be on site to celebrate the launch of the MitoAction Murfee and provide information about Mitochondrial disease to all event attendees!

Head to any In the Pink location or visit to shop for your Mito Murfee today!

We are thrilled to celebrate Pink Boulevard as our store of the week!  Located at the crossroads of Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island, Pink Boulevard can be found in beautiful Freshfields Village on Johns Island, SC.

Pink Boulevard was opened by Kelsey Nichols in late Spring of 2007.  Kelsey has been a Lilly Lover her whole life, so much so that she wanted to open up a Lilly store of her own! Kelsey grew up with Lilly, wearing it when she was a Minnie, a teen, at Clemson University, and today! Similar to our Lilly print team, Kelsey is an artist herself! Artwork created by Kelsey is on display in the store.

Pink Boulevard’s location provides Resort vacationers and locals a place to shop.  Freshfields Village offers both shops and restaurants and has weekly Summer activities.  Customers can stop by the farmers market on Mondays, watch a movie on Wednesday nights or listen to bands on Friday evenings on the Village Green.

Happy Summer Pink Boulevard!  Stop by for a visit!

Hello Friends!

Sooo, here I am on the train again. It seems like just yesterday that I was on the train blogging about how COMPLETELY EXCITED I was for Memorial Day weekend. And now? It’s the 4th already. This is a perfect example of time flies when you are having fun. I DO NOT want the summer to go too fast. I just…am having the best time :)

You know when you have moments where you feel great, you are HAPPY and excited about everything the future will bring…I am in that moment. There is so much to look forward to!!!! I have been doing a lot of day dreaming while lying in the sun getting naughty sunburns (please don’t tell my dermatologist and if you have time SEND ME SUNSCREEN! I just can’t resist a little tan. SO BAD). Anyway, when you have the warmth of the sun, a little bikini, straw hat and the latest issue of US WEEKLY…you kind of zone in and out. HEAVEN. Honestly, it is when my best ideas come to me…are you reading Brad and Scott (Lilly owners) I need much, much, much, more time spacing out to US Weekly, promise it does wonders for the prints J hee hee.

I don’t know about you but this 4th is ALLLL about friends and family. Usually is right? My girls and I are headed to my Mom’s house on the Connecticut shore. All of my cousins have houses together – 22 houses of relatives right on the water…can you believe?!?

The house where I spent summers as a kid…I spent EVERY waking moment on those rocks finding crabs and catching minnows!

I remember my Mom circa 1978 is so TDF -her blonde hair, of course barefoot! A sign of summer. She was and is so gorgeous…

And then there was ME in my fav tiered summer dress. I WISH I had a picture of me in my Lilly jelly bean print bathing suit. And of course our family bff, I mean seriously - his outfit could be worn TODAY nothing beats Nantucket reds. Shows how good style is always…in style!

It is incredible to me that those pictures are 30 years old…we will be completely recreating THAT this weekend, in the exact same place. But Sabrina will be the one running around in a little tiered sundress and hopefully SHE will think I am as gorgeous as I thought my mom was. I am going to wear this…barefoot!

This weekend starts with a family cookout Saturday, so many cousins running around you won’t be able to count. All the kids in and out of the salty water all day, completely sandy. My cousin Teddy will take everyone out in the Boston Whaler. We are planning to teach my oldest Sabrina how to water-ski (she’s 8 now! Makes me want to cry that she is so big). My best friend Wendy is coming with her 2 toe-headed boys and we will all just play, play, play.

 I know there is always so much to do…life gets busy doesn’t it. The 4th of July symbolizes so much to me. A time for everyone to gather and smile, see people that you haven’t seen in ages, and most importantly wave the red, white and blue flag. A time to remember how lucky we are.

 Sending you tons and tons of love from the train. Can’t wait for the festivities to start! Please light a sparkler for me.
