We’re in full Carolina Cup prep mode!  It’s never too early to start celebrating, is it? Oh please, we’re Lilly Lovers, after all- too early to celebrate just doesn’t apply to us.  This week we’re highlighting two more of our Carolina Cup destination stores – Palm Avenue (4 locations) and Pink Bee! If you shop any of these locations, drop a line- we’d love to hear from you!

Palm Avenue

Owners Rebecca and Jeff Byrd of Greensboro, North Carolina opened their first Lilly shop, Simply Lilly, in 2001 in Winston Salem, NC. Although it is no longer open, from that first shop, 4 current Lilly Pulitzer Signature Stores were born in the South! Palm Avenue opened in Raleigh, North Carolina’s Cameron Village in 2002, then Greensboro, North Carolina’s Friendly Center in 2003, next on Charleston, South Carolina’s historic King Street in 2003 and finally in Savannah, Georgia in the Abercorn Walk Shopping Center in 2009.

At Palm Avenue we strive to create a happy, fun, colorful shopping experience that is inviting to our customers. Step into our shop and take a break from everyday life- you’ll be in paradise! Whether you are planning your outfit for your next soiree, horse race, graduation, or family vacation, we are here to help! Life is a party and we believe you should dress like it. When shopping in our stores, you can expect to be greeted with a smile, a beautiful spread of Lilly Pulitzer clothing and accessories for women and children, and good conversation as we want to get to know you so we can better help you with your shopping needs. Chances are, you just might run into your neighbor or best friend- Palm Avenue is often times the meeting place for fun! Come visit one of our 4 locations and let us show you how to live the colorful life!

With all 4 of our locations on 1 Facebook page, there’s always something going on- come check it out!

Pink Bee

Memories of a Lilly Pulitzer Shop in Sarasota, FL, during the ’70′s and ’80′s inspired Joanna Sherman to open a women’s and children’s shop in Greenville, South Carolina.  Joanna began selling Lilly Pulitzer clothing in the back of her mother-in-law’s juvenile furniture store. Within six months she opened as Bumble Bee’s on Augusta Street.

After seven successful years Joanna expanded, changing the name to Pink Bee and moving to Greenville’s West End.   While visiting the West End, you can browse through the shops in the West End Market and surrounding streets, dine in one of the area’s unique restaurants, enjoy a theater performance, or take a stroll over the world-class pedestrian bridge across the Reedy River Falls.

Joanna’s shop is the only place you can find Lilly Pulitzer clothing, shoes and accessories in Greenville. When visiting the Pink Bee, you will experience what Lilly Pulitzer is all about – a fun attitude, a casual sort of elegance; a style called “affluence at ease.”

We love connecting with our customers- even when they’re not IN our shop so connect with us on Facebook and say hello!

Pink bee is the best store! They are always so helpful, and will order something if they don’t have it! I am so glad they are getting recognized for being such a wonderful Lilly Store.
