Sorority Prints – What Happens Next?

Posted on January 25, 2012 in More Fun by | 27 comments

So the most exciting part of our sorority print contest is over but the best is yet to come! We know, as you come down off yesterday’s high, you’re all landing in the same place – what’s next?!? So here’s a quick rundown of what’s in store for our print class of 2012.

- The print team will spend the next few weeks designing the prints
- Once the prints are completed, our team will work with each sorority’s national to approve the final designs
- After all prints have national & internal sign off, we will aim to reveal them publicly by the end of February (likely on Facebook!)
- Product design and production in March and April
- Product samples will be created, approved and photographed in May
- Pre-ordering should go live by June
- Product available by August!  Just in time for back to school & Fall Rush!

*these dates may shift at any time as they are only estimates and goals to get you your prints!

In between these steps are about 1,000 more small steps, meetings, calls, hurried schedules, fabric samples, runs and buys and lots of planning – all part of a big team effort that turns this fun idea into a reality. Though this quick list doesn’t tell the full story of everything that goes into bringing these amazing prints to market, we do hope it illustrates the reason we can’t do every sorority all at once. And while we love, love, love adding new print classes and bringing excitement to the sorority program, we absolutely DREAD saying no to some of the most amazing girls and organizations. (Several of us on the team admitted to bad dreams and lost sleep over the delivery of the results! We care as much as all of you!)

Have we said thank you enough? Well honestly, it can’t be said enough. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your energetic and spirited participation in our 2012 sorority program. We can’t wait to wow you with prints that will hopefully create a lasting legacy for you and your sisterhood. Welcome Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Phi Mu, Pi Beta Phi and Sigma Kappa to the Lilly Print Class of 2012!

It would have been a better announcement had she pronounced all of the houses correctly.

We are so happy that Alpha Xi Delta will be among the line-up of houses to get a print. Thank you, Lilly Pulitzer + “Xi Love.”

Can you make the iPhone cover with the sorority prints? Can’t wait to see what they look like! I am thinking about getting Lilly sorority gear for my Greek bridesmaids!



Posted on January 26th, 2012 at 1:46am

Will there be any products added to the line? Planners, iPhone cases, and laptop/iPad cases seem to be a big want from myself as well as girls I’ve spoken to. Will definitely be sporting a new Phi Mu tote this fall thought!!! :)

This is wonderful…. NOW if Lilly designs clothing with the fabric that is functional. My vote is the classic Lilly shift with the two square pockets in the front. Makes a great beach cover up; a summer must have as it’s cool for the summer parties and to wear to work.

You guys should surprise Theta Phi Alpha with our own print this year for our centennial.. we’d be forever thankful :)

Thank you for any other informative blog. Where else could I get that type of information written in such an ideal way? I have a project that I am just now working on, and I’ve been at the look out for such information.

Please add Zeta Tau Alpha to your sorority collection of prints!



Posted on September 10th, 2012 at 5:23pm

I second this notion! It would be awesome for Theta Phi Alpha to receive one for its centennial!



Posted on December 10th, 2012 at 4:14pm

Yes i would love a Theta Phi Alpha print so very much. Hopefully Lily will make one very soon, and for the centennial that would be beyond perfect.

Lilly definitely needs a Gamma Sigma Sigma print! Service sororities deserve recognition too! (:



Posted on January 10th, 2013 at 6:18pm

Time for new releases!!! I want to buy sooo much Alpha Sigma Tau lilly!!!!



Posted on January 29th, 2013 at 1:38pm

GAMMA PHI BETA NEEDS PRINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gamma Phi Beta was the first sorority that actually coined the term ‘sorority’ and used it. I believe that the house that gave this system it’s name deserves a print as a nationally renowned sorority.

Would love to see Alpha Gamma Delta prints!



Posted on February 3rd, 2013 at 5:54pm

I love the sorority prints but would love to see Sigma Delta Tau on here!



Posted on March 3rd, 2013 at 9:42pm

Add Alpha Sigma Alpha!!!!



Posted on August 17th, 2013 at 2:24pm

Will there be more sorority prints this year? I’d love to see more houses, including SDT, represented!!
