Silhouettes in Bloom

Posted on February 2, 2012 in More Fun, Style by | Comment

 This Spring, some of our long-adored dresses have bloomed into new silhouettes.  All your fave dresses + all our fave trends = everyone’s new must-haves for Spring!  The Lottie, Blossom’s little sister, has the same structure with a bit more simplicity- it’s the perfect body style to let the print do the talking! Our darling Clare has transformed into Cherrie with some added shirring detail at the empire waist for shaping but minus the ruffles at the neckline.

And the HOT, HOT, HOT love affair with our cool, cotton slub jersey just got hotter with the introduction of the Somerset in Spring! Same body style with an added ruffle for femininity & whimsy! And Whinnie is the love child of the sassy, one-shouldered Whitaker and the ruffled, flirty Wynn top – win-win-whinnie!

Don’t worry, your fab-fun-favorites will still be around to help you come alive with color in the coming months!

Stock up for Spring!

We know a thing or two about brightening up the dull days of Winter. For starters, we usher Spring in at the end of January so we can *think* Spring before it actually is Spring. (Perhaps it’s a coincidence that today will get up to 60 degrees here at the Pink Palace but we do believe in the power of positive thinking!) We are loving all the printed tops from our first Spring delivery- bright and bold and BINGO! they work under sweaters if all that positive thinking didn’t quite get through to Mother Nature.  So pile on the prints, bring on the brights and THINK SPRING with our printed tops!

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!…

OBSESSED. By now you’ve probably heard of Pinterest.  And if you haven’t, you will in 5…4…3…2…1 – someone will have mentioned it to you in the time it took to read that.  That’s because it’s an uber-fun, absolutely addicting, everyone-who-tries-it-loves-it, drool tool that you just need to know about. We’ve been using Pinterest since the lazy days of Summer and pin whenever we’re inspired! We’ve created quite a collection of pins over the last 6 months and we’re loving every wasteful colorful minute of it!

Let us paint a picture of Pinterest for you… Pinterest is basically an online inspiration board where you electronically “pin”, via a browser add-on or via the Pinterest website,  something to a “board” you’ve created.  It’s a great tool to collect ideas, recipes, photos, inspirations, etc, in an organized and very visual way.  And probably the best part of Pinterest? How incredibly easy it is to SHARE content. Your “home page” will constantly be flooded with new images from the “pinners” you follow and you can simply take it all in or you can “repin” to your heart’s delight, collecting all those new ideas on your own boards for later perusal.  That’s the basic idea but we think you’ll get a better idea of it if you just take a peek yourself. And here’s a quick peek of ours…

Of course, you can’t use Pinterest until you get an invite. Blergh. But… it’s not too hard. You can request an invite & wait or you can get invited through a friend who is already pinning!  Here are some great tips on taking that very first step to your newest addiction.

Oh and most important… make sure you’re following Lilly Pulitzer on Pinterest!! We hope to inspire and repin you!

Cotton’s 24 Hour Runway Show with Lilly!

Posted on January 9, 2012 in More Fun by | Comment

Runway shows are SO much fun…except when they’re over! Have you ever attended one and found yourself slightly sad that it all ended so fast? One minute the runway is bustling with the latest and greatest in fashion and the next, it’s over all too quickly. Oh come on, we can’t possibly be the only ones to experience the post-show let down. Well, a few weeks ago we can happily say we attended a runway show with zero post-show let down. That’s because it was the marathon of all fashion shows - Cotton’s 24 Hour Runway Show in Miami! Every minute of the ’round the clock show featured a different look – that’s 1,440 looks, accompanied by some amazing (and much needed during the wee hours) DJ beats, strutting down a 2 tiered, twisted South Beach runway! (Check out the show’s highlight reel here)

After a month of planning, we were ready to get to Miami for a day full of festivities. The show, that began at noon on Saturday, November 19th, was kicked off by Guiliana Rancic from E!. Lilly’s debut was set to happen during the “Sunday Brunch” time slot so there was plenty of time to kick back and enjoy the show before we had to get our game face on. The energy was absolutely contagious – with DJs spinning live, it was time to soak in the fashion…South Beach style! Ahhhh, can you say a fashionista’s dream come true?! All we could think about was how beautiful our colorful Lilly looks would look on the pristine, bright white runway the next morning…

So, here is the part where we’re supposed to say we stayed up for the ENTIRE 24 hours and did not miss any of the looks, right? Well, not quite. We had to head back to the hotel a little past midnight to get Mrs. Brynn [Harbert], Lilly’s spokesperson for the Cotton show, some shut eye so she could be prepared for our segment and her live (yes, LIVE! the whole show was streaming live on MTV.com) interview in the morning.

Sunday morning began meeting the fun & lively morning host, Cindy Taylor. (it didn’t appear she had stayed up all night either!) We chatted with her for a bit and before we knew it, Brynn was called up to take her place on stage. We were thrilled to be able to tell the show’s audience just how much Cotton means to our brand. As a brand born in Florida, it really always has been a tried and true staple in all of our lines for 50[ish] years. For our 2012 Resort line, some of our favorite pieces are Cotton so we were thrilled to have them included in the show. As they came down the runway, it was obvious why Lilly loves Cotton – it lends itself so beautifully to our vibrant prints. With the South Beach sun shining down and DJ Juan Mejia on the turntable, Lilly rocked the catwalk for a full twenty minutes!

Thank you to Cotton Inc. and MTV for a truly unforgettable experience – the amazing production went off without a hitch and we were thrilled to be a part of it! If you weren’t lucky enough to attend, don’t worry, we knew you wouldn’t want to miss it! Check out the full clip of the show and Brynn’s interview with Cindy here:

Embracing Tangerine Tango – Pantone’s 2012 Color of the Year

Posted on January 5, 2012 in Inspiration, More Fun by | Comment

Every year, Pantone, the internationally known authority on all things color, has recently announced that 2012′s color of the year is… drum roll please…TANGERINE ORANGE!  Oh boy did we relish in last year’s color choice of Honeysuckle Pink because duh- it was PINK, but leave it to Lilly to know EXACTLY what color is going to be fabulous and embrace it like no one else can.

Just you wait…it is going to be eeeeverywhere. Oh wait, it already IS here at Lilly!  For our first delivery of the new year, coral (the Lilly interpretation of the color of the year) reigns supreme.  Coral is incredibly chic AND flatters your complexion all year round. It’s just one of those colors that makes you look incredible and brightens you right up.

We just loooove what Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®, says about this year’s color:  “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”

How can you not like the sound of that?! And really, how can you not want some of this?!
