Store of the Week – Lady Bird

Posted on October 3, 2011 in More Fun by | Comment

Pam Halferty and Emily Smith, owners of Lady Bird, have been “besties” since the first grade (don’t you dare ask them how old they are!) and though they hail from California, they both spent time on the east coast and fell in love with the Lilly Pulitzer brand.  Lucky for the ladies of San Marino, California that they decided to bring Lilly to the west coast and open up a Signature Store in March of 2010.  They knew the Pasadena community would love Lilly as much as they did and they were right!  They have great customers and Pasadena loves having a local Lilly shop where they can see all the goodies in person!  Here’s a little bit more about how these friends made Lady Bird a west coast Lilly Lover’s favorite!…

Leave it to Lilly Pulitzer to create such beautiful prints using navy and pink… We’re also loving all of the black cocktail dresses. The Jeanette Dress is a knock out for sure!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – We [also] Go Pink in October!

Posted on September 30, 2011 in More Fun by | Comment

Check out Breast Cancer Charities of America online, on Facebook and on TwitterDonate to their Help Now Fund today!

Lilly herself always said “if you have no charity in your heart, you have the worst type of heart trouble.” That is why we continue her legacy through all of our philanthropic partnerships and dedicated product. This October, we want to bring awareness to a cause that’s near and dear to our hearts and to a growing organization that is bringing integrated cancer care to women, nationwide. We would like to introduce you to our friends at the Breast Cancer Charities of America, bringing together breast cancer authorities from a variety of healthcare and allied professions who are dedicated to ending breast cancer. (And really, how can we not support an organization with a campaign called “I Go Pink?!” Lilly Lovers go pink every day!!) They also work to promote nutrition, exercise, mind, body, and social support to bring cancer prevention to women. As a women’s apparel brand, highlighting such a great organization is truly a pleasure.

In the Guest House with the Kleiers!

Posted on September 28, 2011 in More Fun by | 1 comment

We are very excited to have the Kleiers from HGTV’s hit show, Selling New York, in our Guest House today.  This real-estate powerhouse trio (mother & daughters) are Lilly Lovers and loyal shoppers of our Madison Avenue store.  They tell us that they love the vibrant colors of Lilly because they translate so well onscreen. (good to know!)  They are always upbeat & fun when they stop in and shop and we love tuning in on Thursday’s at 9pm to see them donning their recent purchases.  Of course, their first love is real estate which is another reason they love Lilly – they adore that our Madison Avenue store is located in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side (where they sell most of their properties) and that the store is a two-story historic townhouse complete with original details including crown molding & a marble entrance.  Which is why it’s the PERFECT place for them to host a book signing of their newly released book called “Hot Property!”  Make plans to meet these Lilly-loving New Yorkers in person this coming Monday evening at our Madison Avenue store!

 We wanted to know a little bit more about these lovely women so we asked them to answer some of our questions. Here’s what they had to say!…

Q. “Working with my mom/daughter is ______________”
A. A dream come true! (we all surprisingly agree on that!)

Q. If you could be selling real estate in any other city, which city would it be?
A. Impossible! We would never leave New York.

A Greecian ταξίδι (Getaway)!

Posted on September 23, 2011 in More Fun by | 1 comment

Jose, Visual Director here at Lilly, came back with a dark tan, a HUGE smile & over 700 pictures from his recent trip to Greece. We couldn’t wait to hear the details and when we did- we just had to share. Here’s Jose to tell you about his AH-MA-ZING trip (and the sandals he won’t stop talking about)…

My 10-day whirlwind in Greece started with champagne and chocolates in Athens at the Grande Bretagne. Then off to Crete to enjoy the country and peaceful outdoors at the Blue Palace. And then to Mykonos via propeller plane, where we rented ATV’s to explore the party island of Greece and enjoy the amazing Sunset at the Santa Marina….

Brief store history: The idea to open a Lilly Pulitzer shop came to owners Paul and Shelly Haley one beautiful day under a bright blue sky, with warm soft sand under their feet and whispering palm trees in their ears.  A few months later Paradise settled in the rambling hills of Morris County, New Jersey. Resort style living is brought to life here by way of clothing and accessories for women, children and men. Now in our 10th year of business, we have become the area’s destination shop for all things fun and colorful! In this time, Paradise has doubled its square footage and continually works to make improvements and updates to bring customers the best shopping experience around. A dedicated and knowledgeable sales staff of local Lilly Lovers demonstrates how pink and green can work into any wardrobe, in any climate, and in many ways!

A Lilly Lover’s Trip to Paradise!

Posted on September 16, 2011 in More Fun by | 3 comments

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!)
