No one loves the sun more than us!! And we always wear our sunscreen! A study this spring showed that 31% of Americans never wear sunscreen! Ah!!! We love to tan but more importantly we’d love to be mistaken for our daughters’ sisters! So remember that this summer when you’re on the beach make sure you’re covered with sunscreen and don’t forget to reapply. Here’s a little note from our friends at Supergoop…
Summer Sun Safety with Supergoop! SPF 30 (say that 7x fast!)
The LILLY PULITZER LIFESTYLE is about celebrating and defining summer style. We want everyone to enjoy the summer months, but do so safely–be it putting floaties on your toddlers, or applying broad spectrum SPF 30 suncare, we must protect ourselves and our entire family.
We are excited to have you partner with DOCTOR T’S SUPERGOOP! to help spread the word about the importance of daily sun safety. By encouraging families to form these habits early in life it is not only protective but also increases the likelihood that children will continue to practice these habits. Supergoop! SPF 30 makes this daily routine fun and simple for the entire family.
Stop by Madison Avenue, East Hampton and Palm Beach Gardens for your free Supergoop! SPF 30 Flip-Top Tube as a gift with all purchases this July!

What are the interns up to you ask? Check out this week’s question Rhianna asked the girls.
What is one funny or interesting occurrence that has happened as a Lilly intern so far?
Samantha Wolf: While working the register at the warehouse sale I saw a really great looking pregnant woman (I’m talking- looked like she had a beach ball under her dress, no weight any where else) and asked when she was due and she said “Oh they’re inducing me tomorrow!” Nothing like doing anything for Lilly.
Danielle Fichter: One interesting thing that happened to me as a Lilly intern occurred when I got a chance to spend a day with one of the designers. I was helping her look through old Vogue magazines and we found some vintage Lilly ads from the 1970s! They’re awesome and I actually have some decorating my desk right now!!!
Last week we hosted an on-campus event at a local DZ sorority house and brought the Lilly store to them! 30 girls sipped cocktails and shopped racks hand picked for them! Girls who spent over a certain amount were able to place an order for a polo with their letters on it! We had so much fun that we’d love to party with more of you! We can come to you or you can take over your local Lilly store for private shopping. Let us know if you’re interested. Send your sorority, school and contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hurry get on our Fall calendar to make sure your sisters are stylish for the school year!
This past weekend In the Pink on Main Street in Chatham, MA celebrated Lilly’s 50th Jubilee! We took over the front lawn with vintage garments enticing vacationers to stop inside and try on something new…no one was leaving empty handed! As the day progressed we served cupcakes and cocktails and danced to the bandstand music across the street. It was a good old fashioned New England weekend complimented perfectly by pink! Stop by Mashpee Commons as the Retrospective and the Lilly Jeep travel up-cape for another party this Saturday!
Found this..totally adoreable whether it’s for the kids’ bathtime or for mom’s relaxing escape. It’s always important to add those little unexpected elements to life. Plus- having this guy in the drain is MUCH better than the real deal haha… Cheers and Happy Bubbles!
Went for a swim with our friends’ dogs today and then off to meet up for a boat ride out to a small “island” beach. Took the boat out of a Lilly summertime-mecca of sorts. (If you know this town you will understand. ) Nearly scorched my feet off trekking over the sand but dominated in a game of Frisbee to make up for it. The seals seemed very interested in the bright colors of my Lilly swim suit. A late afternoon cocktail on a rooftop deck at The Pearl overlooking the harbor and the best food on earth..oysters….

This week Rhianna asked our lovely interns: If you could give every Lilly Lover in the world one item in our stores now, what would it be and why?
See what they answered!
After taking in some gorgeous work at the The Picasso Museum, (when you visit here this place is not to be missed) I could not help but notice I was sporting my Sherman Tunic in blue and white embroidery ( see I told you I’ve been wearing it non-stop)… While Picasso’s blue period was desperate and sad, Lilly’s blue periods are always a refreshing break from the pinks and greens…
Speaking of Lilly’s blue periods, I’m currently sitting poolside in my minnies “elefrance” shift, an oldie but goodie. We’ve hopped from on to another locale since I last checked in, and i’m sipping Rose as I type. I actually think it makes me more productive and should consider incorporating into my daily routine.
Beyond my shift, hands down, my favorite travel companion is Stefan, my sister’s boyfriend. Stef is hosting us at his family’s house. He and his family may actually rival Lilly herself for the title ‘hostess with the mostess’. Stef’s been leading us by bike throughout the lazy streets of this little village, every now and then pointing out the best pastry shop or the divey-est local bar. Last night, we had the most incredible Confit de Canard, whipped up by Stef’s grandmother Nicole. Adorable is an understatement, Nicole is everything one would expect out of a fabulous grand-mere, impecably stylish, an incredible cook and so gracious and welcoming. I’ve already offered to move in and be her servant.
The atmosphere reminds me a bit of Lilly’s house in Palm Beach… The door is always open, the dress code always entails bare feet and every hour is happy hour!
