We are VERY excited to introduce a new feature to our blog and on Facebook – Sisterhood Spotlight! All year, we will be sharing the spotlight with some of our favorite Greeks and letting them tell you a little bit more about themselves. We thought we’d kick-off our feature with the lovely ladies of Kappa Kappa Gamma from Rollins since they were kind enough to host us this week for our sorority print reveal! I’ll let them take it from here!…
1. School Name and Location
Rollins College, Winter Park, FL
2. Sorority & Chapter Name
Kappa Kappa Gamma, Delta Epsilon
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.
We are very excited to introduce you all to Jessica Lane, our newest Marketing Intern here at the Pink Palace. For the most part, Jessica’s going to be behind-the-scenes, but from time to time we’ll
make ask her to share her perspective as the newest member of our Lilly family! And here she is!…
Hi Lilly Lovers! I’m working as an intern right now in the Marketing Department at Lilly Pulitzer and I wanted to share a little bit about myself! I’m from a small town in CT called Simsbury and have lived there for most of my life. Growing up in New England, Lilly Pulitzer has been in my closet forever, but I have to say- I never imagined I would be able to be a part of such a wonderful company!
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!
Aloha Lilly Lovers! In anticipation of our favorite summer months slowly winding down (I’m jealous of all you Floridians!), I decided to take an end of summer vacay to one of the most beautiful spots I have ventured thus far: Maui, the second largest island in Hawaii. What better way to escape the end of summer blues than to pack my Lilly and play in the sea, sand, sun?!
Now, I’m not really sure where to begin with this magical journey. The whole trip was a blur of beautiful beaches, the bluest ocean I’ve ever seen, and LOTS of Lilly clothes to accompany me on my journey. I’m going to give you a glimpse of my trip…where I went & what I wore! The first, and one of my most favorite, the Cassie slub Dress, came in most handy out of all my Lilly’s- perfect for wearing as a cover up or as an easy dress to dinner. The Cassie was perfect for almost every Hawaiian occasion. Here’s a quick pic of me while driving the Road to Hana on my way to our lux hotel, the Ritz Carlton, Kapalua (!!!!!) How cute is the color on this Cassie? (I have the Warehouse Sale to thank for this sample purchase…we never offered yellow on our line!)

We love anything printed and are particularly fond of this collection pulled by our talented graphic artist. Have you dyed or decorated any yet? Make sure you send us your favorites! Wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with lots of Lilly. Spring is finally here!
This week we are so proud to host Molly Andrews in our Guest House. Molly is the creator of Chairloom, a local Main Line design service that specialises in the reinvention of antique furniture by reupholstering pieces with fun, fresh fabrics. We love her creative vision, her passion for reusing and reinventing and her childhood memories of Lilly clothing. She used to watch her Lilly clad grandmother rescue injured pelicans with her bare hands and walk them gently to the vet. Now that’s a woman to be admired! With Earth Day this Friday we thought her story was the perfect focus. A few weeks back, we gave Molly some of our left over Summer 2011 fabric, she provided a chair that she found while sifting through a thrift store and we headed to her upholsterer. It was amazing to watch the chair’s transformation. Upholstery is a true art and now one of our lucky readers will be the proud owner of the finished product. Entry details will follow soon but in the meantime check out our q&a to learn more about Molly Andrews and Chairloom.
