October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

And as all Lilly lovers know, we LOVE happy stories here at the Pink Palace. But sometimes life throws us a curve ball and it’s then that we really crave some comfort. So, we teamed up with the American Cancer Society to create a one of a kind design to brighten the most dreary of days since we know (and are very thankful) that Lilly Pulitzer prints have been lifting spirits of those who wear them for over 50 years. ACS knows about lifting spirits, too. This October, the ACS movement Making Strides Against Breast Cancer will bring people together to celebrate those who have battled the disease and empower others to join the fight with walks held nationwide. The best news is, even if you can’t get out for the event, you can still help this amazing cause. The limited edition print, designed exclusively by ACS, is available on our beloved Murfee scarf – featuring a stunning palette of soft pinks, greens and flecks of white. The pattern depicts lotus flowers, a symbol of beauty, strength and success.  The lotus flower, grown in the muddy swamps of India, symbolizes that even from the worst situation one can always pull through and make the best out of it. No matter one’s struggles in life, he or she will always survive.  Intertwined throughout the design are signature “Making Strides” breast cancer awareness ribbons, also in pink. Lilly Pulitzer is contributing approximately $5 from each breast cancer awareness scarf to the American Cancer Society to help save lives. To learn more and to see if there’s a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event in your area, visit Pssstttconsider this a VERY good excuse to go shopping…

And since we love happy stories so very much, we were lucky to receive some from Lilly lovin’ survivors. Each Monday throughout the month, we will feature their stories right here on our blog. We know you will find these women as inspiring as we do. xx
