The over-sized banana leaves in this print are an obvious nod to a fan-yourself & dab-your-forehead jungle theme, but being subtle & sneaky is always a wee bit more fun. Which is why the print team snuck a suggestion into the print. (though in these colors & these styles, we think that’ll just happen!) And what’s Janie’s favorite part about this print?? That it’s available in Men’s swim trunks. Oh she’s funny like that…

Pink Narcissus, run by two Tallahassee natives, Laura Steen and Juli Downs, just opened this past May as an “official” Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store. Of course, as one of Tallahassee’s premier boutiques, Narcissus had carried Lilly for 15 years before finally deciding to open as a Signature Store. And the timing couldn’t have been better. They were just in time for graduations of all ages! Here’s a little more from Laura…

My Lilly Story: Our original store, Narcissus, carried Lilly Pulitzer for 15 years which is where I fell in LOVE with everything Lilly! Now I get to share my love and knowledge of the resort chic lifestyle with my own customers at Pink Narcissus.
We love being located in Tallahassee. It’s absolutely the perfect blend of families and college kids making for fun days & party nights! And another reason to love Tallahassee?? They voted Pink Narcissus as the “Best of Tallahassee” for “Best New Business,” “Best Women’s Clothing Store” and “Best Kids Clothing Store”! We were very excited about that & know Tallahassee is excited about getting Lillyfied!
1. Shere Wrap 2. Tootsie Sweater Wrap 3. Connell Sweater 4. Shere Sweater Coat
We admit it – we like cashmere. Can you blame us?? It’s warm, it’s cozy and in these styles- it’s adorable! The Shere is a staple, wrapped or worn, and we’re absolutely loooving the new, oh-so-clever, Tootsie wrap! It’s a wrap without the fuss! (seriously- the Tootsie is genius in Cashmere) And be sure to introduce your skinny jeans to the Connell – they’ll be cold weather BFFs!
Whichever sweater you choose, you’ll wow in warmth!

When Kathryn M. Deane, long-time Lilly Lover and co-author of “Bermuda“, approached us about doing some events at our Lilly stores to promote her new book, it was a quick “Yes, of course!!” How could we resist helping spread the word about a book that talks about one of our favorite Resort destinations all while giving 100% of the proceeds back to the island through 4 wonderful organizations?!? (well exactly, we couldn’t!!) Of course we wanted to know a little bit more about Kathryn & what inspired her to write the book (and just how she got Michael Douglas to write the foreward!) so we invited her into our Guest House to fill us in! Here’s a bit more from Kathryn…
1. What do you love most about Bermuda and why did you choose to do a book about the island?
To me, Bermuda is such a timeless place. I see photos of my parents sailing on their honeymoon in Bermuda in the 1950s. I remember exploring the island with my brothers and sisters in the 1960s and 1970s and bringing my children there in the 1990s. And now they are in college and love to come to the island to be with their family and friends. Bermuda has an enduring beauty both in the beaches and the water and in the life and vibrant culture. That’s what we tried to capture in the book—how Bermuda is such a great community made up of extraordinary people. It’s a place that truly has it all and the photographs we put in the book show how much there is to do and see there. There are incredible artists, business people, politicians, visitors & locals, museum curators, children & families, and scientists, all going about their lives in this place of breathtaking natural beauty.
Skip On It, by our Print Designer Stacey, is the quintessential “Jungle Glam” print. It’s got everything we loooove about getting hot & steamy in the jungle – exotic flowers (can’t you almost smell the sweet air?!?), palm fronds and some hidden critters, of course. (not the poisonous kind!) We popped our jungle palms with some black making this a chic print that says “glamour, here I come!” (and though a jungle theme clearly called for some slithery snakes it was decided that jungle frogs were the way to go. But don’t worry, we found a way to sneak in some jungle snakes!)
