Earlier today we put you up to the challenge of naming some of our most favorite prints for Spring- any luck? Hope so! Now that your seeking skills are sharpened, we thought we’d throw another fun challenge your way!
These colorful bits shown above were taken during the build out of the highly anticipated, much talked about, polished and practically perfect NEW ARDMORE LILLY PULITZER RETAIL STORE! (can you tell we’re excited?!) We guarantee a visit to this jewel box of a location will have you lingering for hours. Around each corner is a vivid surprise – the décor is equally as exciting as the Spring Collection!
And now for your challenge…. print these numbered swatches and bring them with you to the Ardmore Store located at 25 Coulter Avenue Ardmore, PA 19003. Take your time and examine every wall, corner and dressing room (don’t forget the bathroom- that’s a hint!) Identify all 8 details and win a $25.00 gift card. How fun is that?! A true treasure hunt with a reward you can put to instant use! Good Luck!
(This delightful treasure hunt ends when the 10th person has received their bounty! Ask the Store Manager for details- but not help!)

Market Bags, iPhone Covers, iPad Covers, Netbook/iPad Sleeves, Beach Coolers, Oh my!
If Lilly Pulitzer put out an album once every 2 years, we just KNOW you would camp out for it, right? Well we’re not much for crooning and we’ll stick to the arts we know [print design!], but the anticipation we’ve had for our Spring launch of stationary and gifts has been ah-ah-ah-amazing!! I mean, what’s a cell phone carrying, iPad using, tailgate going, party throwing, grocery shopping, letter writing, coffee drinking Lilly lover to do?? Choose plain? Oh no you didn’t. And you don’t have to. xx

If you’re lucky enough not to have lost your President’s Day weekend to the deep south deep freeze, the east coast snowpocalypse or the midwest’s shovelmania 2011 then you’re… well… lucky! And if you are planning to get away from the oh-my-gosh-why-are-you-still-here snow mountains than we’re just jeal-ous. You clearly have the “if spring won’t come to me, I will go and find it” attitude and you KNOW we admire that! And since we don’t think you’ll be able to fit one of us in your suitcase, we’ll settle for having you pack some pretties from our Spring line!
Line 1: Main Line Jean, Palmer Polo, Sandal, Seaspray Halter Top & Surfs Up Bottom, Kiki Dress
Line 2: Foxi One Piece, Callahan Short, Kerr Tank, Savana Shawl, Espadrille, Maci Dress, Wedge
Line 3: Petula Dress, Espadrille
I’ve heard some girls around the office say that if it hits 65 degrees on Saturday they’re going to lay that beach towel down in the yard and soak up the rays. See? We have the right attitude- just not the plane ticket!
Ahhhh SPRING! Just saying the word makes me smile…really big! Something else that makes me smile is our spring catalog – which has been popping up in mailboxes across the country…hopefully yours is one of them (fingers crossed). Well, what do you think?! I surely hope you have fallen as hard as we have here at Lilly Pulitzer HQ. From the photo shoot to the printing press, catalogs are truly a work in progress for many, many months. When I get to hold one in my hand, feel the paper and flip the pages – I can honestly say that after witnessing the process from start to finish, it is the BEST feeling in the world! Here are some photos from our photo shoot so you, too, can get a peek at this project as it has evolved to the book you have (I hope) on your coffee table!
A little birdie told us here at the Pink Palace that you are, indeed, as ready for spring as we are and have already stopped in to a Lilly store near you to buy your favorites from the spring line (or maybe even put in an order for something that has not quite yet arrived). But, we don’t just want to listen to a little birdie. We want to hear it from YOU because you matter most. Please take a moment to fill out our survey and tell us what you think when you flip the pages…we are going to stick to our mantra here and let you know that we believe “too much is never enough” when it comes to feedback. We have heard over the years that Lilly fans love to hold on to their catalog for years to come and we want this tradition to continue…well, FOREVER. So, let us know your thoughts (you could win 1 of 2 small prizes!) – we CANNOT wait to hear from you!

White. White. White. Lilly Pulitzer makes a statement- even in white! This Spring we deliver our LWDs with a white hot vengeance – the most gorgeous assortment to date! Dresses for every age and every occasion in beautiful, dimensional fabrics just screaming to be touched. (you’ve been warned)
There’s a silhouette for every body type- perhaps it’s the show stopping Reeve in our vintage, papillon lace or the over-the-top, down-to-the-floor Ali in peek-a-boo eyelet. Maybe you’ll go for a 3/4 length sleeve and choose the excuse me while I take over the world, embroidered Shauna dress or the where are my over-sized sunglasses Shayna dress in all-over-lace. Whichever dress you choose, you’re sure to wow in white! xx

Brides can’t have all the fun. Don’t be afraid to laugh, flirt, dance and dazzle at this years nuptials. And if your bestie says white dresses are a no-no well that’s easy, wear PINK! Keep your eyes peeled as we roll out the pink carpet for some of our most favorite dresses – they’re sure to please but whatever you do, don’t upstage the bride. That just might be harder than it sounds in a Lilly.

We think it’s very fitting that pink makes us feel vibrant, warm and alive – that’s why Lilly lovers always party in pink [and prints]!
This past Saturday, to help kick start our week long celebration of pink, Lilly Pulitzer sponsored the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Arts first annual Ringling in Bloom weekend. This special event was dedicated to the memory of Mable Ringling, whose passion for flowers and horticulture is evident in the glorious grounds and gardens of the Ringling Estate. The inspiration behind the exhibit, Gardens in Perpetual Bloom, began with the inspiration from some of the top Florists in the Sarasota area. Each designer’s fresh floral arrangement directly inspired a masterpiece from the Ringling’s collection, and the exhibition itself was developed by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Given the fact that the exhibit was inspired by florals, we felt it very fitting to be the presenting sponsor of such a special weekend.
The event said Lilly in every way possible… and the space we were working with is quite incredible. A giant PINK museum!?? What more could we ask for? From the design of the invitation to the event brochure, to the gift bags, tablecloths, the uniform; this PINK museum was transformed into a colorful playground. The attire, Lilly or Louder, could be seen throughout the grounds and many Shauna tunics, Twyla’s, Clare’s, Susan’s, and Newports, were SPOTTED throughout the day.
