Store of the Week – Pink Palm Charlottesville

Posted on August 15, 2011 in More Fun by | 1 comment

Last but absolutely, certainly NOT least, we are featuring the 4th of the Pink Palm locations- this time in the lovely college town of Charlottesville!  Since we have many former Wahoos in our midst, including our Senior Vice President of Retail, Marketing & Merchandising, we have a special place in our hearts for the ladies of Charlottesville <3.  And of course the team at Pink Palm is every bit as fabulous as every customer that walks in the door!  We’ll let them tell you more about themselves…

A little about us… The Pink Palm first opened in Charlottesville in 2004. Lilly lovers all over Central Virginia hunted down our tucked-away location. We have been the go-to boutique for University of Virginia students to find the perfect dress each year for football games and the annual Foxfield Races. After six years, Dave and Lizanne (our owners!) jumped on an opportunity to move to a more visible location. In February 2011, The Pink Palm opened its posh pink doors in the Barracks Road Shopping Center’s North Wing. We have since been introducing pink and green to Lilly-deprived souls and celebrating with long-time customers who love our new store and prime location!

Our Lilly Story: You’re never without a smile when walking into a Lilly store, especially The Pink Palm in Charlottesville. With pink and green walls, chandeliers and a lilly-fied palm tree, it’s like the sun shines during all four seasons in Virginia. In a small town, we love getting to know our customers on a more personal level to help them find the best styles that fit their needs. Sarah Fauerbach is the store manager and has been a Lilly Lover all her life! Assistant manager, Emily Woodrow came to us after working at a signature store in Alexandria, VA and her bubbly personality always keeps the store’s energy level high. With our small staff, you can be sure Susan, Missy, Katie, Charlotte, Lydia, Katelyn, JC, Lisel, or Lane will be here to help you!

Or favorite product from the Fall ’11 delivery is: The Adalie wrap dress! We love the style, prints and it is so flattering on any figure. Our customers love wrap dresses- especially with sleeves!

Did you know….One of our fabulous employees did an internship at Lilly Pulitzer’s corporate headquarters this Summer?? While we really missed her this summer, she was busy sharing her creativity and talent with the marketing department. We loved reading her blog posts and can’t wait to have her back this year to hear about her experience!

A favorite Customer Story: We love being located right next to the University of Virginia, helping the girls pick out dresses for all kinds of events, but this spring we got to share the biggest event of all with one of our customers. A UVA grad getting married in the University Chapel, came to us for all things Lilly! We outfitted all the bridesmaids and found fun party gifts for everyone involved! It was sure to be a magical day and best wishes to the bride and groom to love, laugh and wear Lilly!

Pop The Bubbly and Shop our New Site!

Posted on August 11, 2011 in More Fun by | Comment

Today is a day worth celebrating here at the Pink Palace. We are very, very, very excited to be launching our brand new website,! (and no- it’s not a coincidence that tomorrow is our last Summer Friday-the web team is taking full advantage of the early weekend because they are ready to celebrate! Tomorrow’s Happy Hour will be surely be very HAPPY!)

Now imagine you’ve just discovered a new Lilly shop *squeee* – you walk in the door, wide-eyed, smiles from ear-to-ear and a burning sensation coming from inside your purse. (tell me we aren’t the only ones who feel that!) The store staff spots you in your head-to-toe Lilly and greets you with a knowing smile. “Hi there!” she says, “Have you shopped with us before?” “No.” you answer in whispered astonishment. “Well then, let’s have a looksie, shall we?”

In the middle of our homepage, you’ll hit the Lilly Jackpot. Zingo!! Here you’ll find what’s new, featured looks of the season, dresses, tops & bottoms, shoes & accessories, Minnies and home & gifts. All our goodies in a pretty, little row, just waiting to be scooped up! And two treasures we know you’ll looooooove – our Shop by Print (yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!!!!!) and Behind the Scenes. (making sure our Lilly girl is aaaallllways in-the-know!)

In our top right corner you’ll find everything you need to make shopping with Lilly easy. (no- we have not built in some kind of decision-maker that helps you pick through your over-flowing Lilly tote – that part is still hard!) But, we have created ways to make shopping on more convenient and seamless leaving you with just the FUN parts!

And you know it wouldn’t be Lilly if we didn’t create a spot for all our pretty young things to socialize and get to know the other Lilly Lovers who are living a colorful life, so in the top left corner we’re inviting you to join the party on Facebook and Twitter and get all the Lilly juice through e-mail and even texts! Be the life of the party and never miss a Lilly beat.

We’re tried to include all the tiniest details along the bottom (you know we’re all about the details!) from ordering & shopping from our catalog, buying a gift card, finding your dream job at Lilly and even helping you find your way around the site.  And of course we made it easy to always find answers to your questions, even when Jack & Kate aren’t manning the phones!

And there will be other hidden gems we’ll be sure to point out to you along the way (fit ratings, my <3s, share with friends, adorable gift cards, monogramming (yes! now breathe, breathe) ship to store, etc.)

If you’re like so many of us, you probably have a cute boy or your precious Minnie waiting patiently for your attention so you’re just going to HAVE TO stop back in, won’t you?? Don’t worry- this party is 24 hours, 365 days a year and there’s never a dull moment.

Agendamania 2011!

Posted on August 10, 2011 in More Fun by | 5 comments

This August 1st we think a new holiday was created- National Get to Use My New Lilly Agenda Day.  You think that’ll catch on?  It’s not like we made it up- it was all of you Lilly Loving, party planning, oh-so-organized ladies that got soooooo excited about the agenda that it was all anyone around the office could talk about!  So you know, we penciled the holiday in on our planners- and maybe it’ll make it into the 2012 calendar- you’ll just have to get one next year to find out!

Above are some of the things we love about the agenda (sorry we’re not sorry about bragging) – I mean really; look at those stickers! and we just loooove January’s print! and the list of reasons to party? so helpful!  (when you have a party on Wednesday, June 20th & people want to know why, you just point to your planner & say “Duh! It’s Summer Solstice!”) We also happen to love our August beach girl’s advice- we shall oblige, that you very much!

And it was so fun to see how many of you loved the agendas too.  The tweets, the Facebook posts, the e-mails, oh my!  Here was just a snapshot of some of the fun:

Oh and 2 important dates you’ll want to jot on those agendas?  August 25th and September 25th- our next 2 fall deliveries arrive!!

Wanna join in the fun?? Get yours now! Large Small

Store of the Week – Pink Palm Mclean

Posted on August 8, 2011 in More Fun by | 3 comments

Pink Palm Mclean is all set for our Fall celebration of drama with their dancing Minnie customers – we just know they’ll get a Standing Ovation in their Lilly wherever they go!

Come find us!
6647 Old Dominion Drive, Mclean, VA 22101
Phone Number: 703.556.8750
Store hours- 10-6 Monday-Saturday, 12-5 Sunday
Find us online and Fan us on Facebook

Our Owners, Lizanne Jeveret & David Holmes, are in all four of our stores continuously. As much as we love when they come to visit, we are always a tad more excited when they bring three of their furry children-Gracie, Boo and Sophie. These four-legged Lilly Lovers are always excited to greet all of our customers with attention and kisses!

A little bit about us… Our store was the second Pink Palm location when we opened in Reston, VA in 2003. We loved all of our customers in Reston but in 2008 we decided to move to Mclean and spread the Love of Lilly! Even though we are so close to the hustle and bustle of Washington D.C., we love the small town feel of our little piece of Lilly heaven!

Our favorite product from the Fall ’11 line is… The Evie Dress! We love it in every pattern and want two of each! The flattering cut with its sassy bow can make any girl feel classy at work and flirty for happy hour. That is the type of functionality we can appreciate. :0)

Our store is unique because… we are located next to a ballet studio so we always have little ballerinas prancing about within our store. Walking into any Lilly store will brighten your day, but with all of the little tutu clad Minnies ready to show you the latest poses they’ve learned, you really can’t do anything but smile. Yet as much as we love our little dancers, we love helping their mommies just as much! All of our employees are avid Lilly Lovers and love to help find matching outfits or flattering outfits for our women on the go. Make sure you come on in to visit and let us find the most fabulous and flattering Lilly frock for you!

Happy Friday Lilly Lovers!  Its JC again, the Marketing Intern and I am sad to say that posting this blog is my last official intern duty.  I feel a bit like Cinderella, except when the clock strikes 2, instead of losing my McKim and  my carriage turning into a pumpkin, I lose my email and have pack up my pink mini.

Party Time Trunk Show Style

Posted on July 27, 2011 in More Fun by | 1 comment

Oh how we love the entrepreneurial woman.  How could we not?  We’d be nowhere if it wasn’t for one young woman with a flair for fashion, a bevvy of stylish & fabulous friends, a way with entertaining and trouble sitting still.  In fact, that combination has added up to some incredibly successful brands we all know and love (like this one, this one, and this one) & some brands & ladies we’re just now falling in love with. (like this one, this one, & this one)

And the way that each & every one of them started their business was to roll up their sleeves & get working – working on getting their product in front of friends who would ultimately fall in love with their brand and spread the word.  And that’s where Lilly comes in.  We throw a mean party- this you know. We loooove to meet new, cool, stylish people- also not a surprise.  But did you know we love to host those parties, with those peeps, in our stores?  Well now you do!

We call them “Trunk Shows” but like much of what we do, they’re just another excuse to have a party.  If you’re an entrepreneur and would like to host a Trunk Show at one of our corporate retail stores, let us know!  We’d love to play host to your fancy friends and help you get the word out about your baby. (because when it’s your business, it’s your baby!)

Find a Lilly Pulitzer store closest to you and contact us at to get this party started!
