We’ve had such a great response to our Sisterhood Spotlight program on the Lilly Pulitzer blog & on Facebook that we wanted to open it up to include YOU!
We started our feature with 6 chapters of alumni members from around the Pink Palace but our plan has always been to open it up to all [Lilly] sororities – the problem was, we weren’t quite sure how we wanted to do it. That is, until last weekend, on one very productive run, (are we the only ones that get our ideas when running?!) we figured it out – PINTEREST! It’s perfect. We’re all obsessed with it – a lot of our Lilly Lovers seem to be too & what a perfect way for you to showcase your chapter to us!
Follow the “instructions” above and you’ll be on your way to being part of our Sisterhood Spotlight!

Since Spring is all. about. pretty., we HAVE to talk about the trend of Ladylike dresses. Trend? OK so no- ladylike is ALWAYS in style and you can always count on Lilly to bring you those styles that make you feel feminine and flirty but also flatter your figure with full skirts, swingy styles and sophisticated textures that make you feel ladylike and… PRETTY!
There are so many cute – slash – fun – slash – LILLY names of our favorite flower of the season- the Lily! When we were looking through the White Flower Farms catalog (an absolute GO–TO in the spring to ogle over blooms to buy) an adorable lily name caught our eye… the Pink Twinkle. And it was, of course, a PINK lily! Put that pink lily in a print and *instantly” – it adds a twinkle to your eye! PERFECT on a Spring in Bloom Lilly dress.
At this point we have made it very clear that we love pretty…in excess. OK. So we’ve established that. Well the Stella de Oro, the star of this print, embodies what Spring 2012 is all about- pretty, pretty, pretty! (see- we’re totally excessive) We love the pink & yellow combo with just a touch of green- it’s a reminder of the green we see starting to peek out here on the East Coast!
Spring Fever Toile
You know so many of our secrets so we will let you in on yet another…we love to hide things in our toiles. In fact, we are becoming experts at it. There is something so devilish about Spring Fever…a stolen kiss, a long lunch that turns into a boozy afternoon (please don’t tell Brad & Scott), playing hooky! This pretty toile says Spring, and look closely, it illustrates all of the things we want to do when the weather turns warm!
We are blooming BIG with this one. We just…can’t…hold…back. Exuberant would be one word – LAVISH is another. Stacey drew this print from a pretty bouquet we had in the print studio and once we saw it…we knew it had to be BIG. Flowers are beautiful…and when you get TONS of them it just makes you happy – like this print!
When the cold weather sets in, Brynn Harbert, Catalog Producer here at Lilly, daydreams about her days at University of Florida as a Tri Delt. She thought we could use a little sunshine here at the Pink Palace so she reached out to her Delta, Delta, Delta sisters and had them send in their pics for our Sisterhood Spotlight feature. Something about that sunny weather that brings smiles to everyone’s faces. Yup- these girls are just what we needed for a little pick-me-up this Friday!

“Right now, I’m hoping for Tri Delt,
For from the first I felt, it’s here I belong.
I know that tomorrow won’t change the way I felt.
For me, it’s just Tri Delt, from now on, from now on.”

One word: PRETTY. We think that best sums up our latest Spring delivery. I mean, sure, we’re biased but c’mon, this delivery has all the makings… lots of pink (here, here and here), beautiful blossoming prints (here, here and here) and patterns that pop (here, here and here). It’s just March 1st but February, January, December — they’re all HISTORY – Spring is blooming and we’re celebrating it’s arrival with Pretty Pink Perfection!
