A little background: Barefoot Princess, owned by Robert and Lindsey Tidwell, has been here for 6 years and has been a hit! Located just one block off the beach at the beautiful Watercolor resort, our customers love to come see us after a relaxing day in the sun!
Our Lilly Story: We are a one-stop Lilly shop for the whole family! We love helping our customers pick out outfits for beach pictures, weddings, or just to stroll around town! We have everything from the perfect Clare dress and Murfee scarf to sunglasses, McKims, and more!
Our favorite product from the Summer delivery is… It’s too hard to choose! We LOVE the new Marisa dress and our customers are totally loving the Wynden top! And of course we are very excited that the Stuffed Shells pattern is back this season!
This Saturday, May 21st, is the Splash into Summer promotion! With a $250 purchase, receive a Kadeema paddle. With a $500 purchase, receive a Kadeema paddle and a cooler! Last year, we ran out of coolers before noon so get here early!!!!!!!!!!!!
Birthdays are a reason to have a party! It was just 5 years ago that I came to Lilly (I know, time flies- I feel like this has been my home forever!), and just 5 years ago that we opened our spectacular store in the King of Prussia mall. To celebrate, we invited all our friends, gave away goodies, snacked on Capitol Grill yummies and popped quite a few bottles of bubbly.
A couple of years ago, the print team and I started visiting stores and painting watercolors for customers. It was new to show off our prints being done first-hand and everyone loved doing it; and I think you all loved seeing it! Well celebrating Lilly Loves the Arts this year has brought an evolution to our artwork. A couple of months ago at the Ardmore opening, we decided to all paint one giant canvas- together!! (two at a time, rotating from painting to chatting with customers, to having a few toasts!) It is soooooo fuuun! We have now mastered the art of painting giant floral prints!
Every single day, my team’s artistic talent knocks me off my feet. This is just another example of how special Lilly Pulitzer is. No one does what we do! The most amazing people love the individuality of the brand – it is just top-to-bottom, inside-and-out FUN. This was absolutely evident at last night’s event.
Cheers to Darcy, Margaret, Clare, Nancy, Steph, Pat…every single amazing person in the “KOP” store (we love you so so so much). We are so proud of the store, thank you for always smiling and making Lilly what it is!

It was just as we thought today on Facebook; a lot of you already know what a QR code is. Quite simply, a QR code or quick response code, is a readable or scannable bar code that you can use, usually with an app, with your smartphone that will take you to an online destination. For those of you who may not have noticed these before, you will now see them EVERYWHERE. They really are popping up in all sorts of places; in magazines, on the back of cereal boxes, on home for sale signs, on restaurant menus, even on tombstones (ok, well that’s in Japan but you see where I’m going with this)
Virginia is for Lilly Lovers. (we thought Virginia’s state slogan was missing a little something) And that’s why Ocean Palm’s owner, Janet Lane-Robert’s, opened her first Lilly Pulitzer signature store- so Virginia Lilly Lovers had a place to buy their Lilly! We’re happy to feature her original location as this week’s Store of the Week…
As we mentioned before, choosing the “best,” Mother’s Day was pretty much an impossible task. The stories were circulated throughout the Pink Palace & we all talked about this one and that one but we kept coming back to Devon’s amazing story and her wonderful photo of 3 generations. You could feel the love in the photo and in the story and we just had to make it our choice. I called Devon to let her know she won and she was delighted! I asked her if she’d like me to send her the story back to her through e-mail so she could look it over once more before I posted it here and she told me to just go ahead and post it- she said it was written straight from the heart & she wanted it to be read that way. She had made a copy of her submission and intended to give it to her mom on Mother’s Day – won’t her mom be surprised to hear there’s a 4 foot x 6 foot piece of original artwork to go with it?! Giving that prize to Devon and her family made our day and we hope today, all of you got to spend the day with your beloved mothers, daughters, grandmothers and best friends. Now here is Devon’s story…
Always with the beautiful girls and always with the must-have looks- the Lilly Pulitzer Summer 2011 catalog, that is- hitting mailboxes any day! We always get very excited when our catalogs ship because these books are a true labor of love. And when we say labor, we’re not necessarily referring to the 3 day shoot at the Round Hill Resort in Jamaica (because um… it’s hard work but we are in paradise, after all!), it’s all the TLC we give it once we pack up and leave town with our reddened cheeks and shots in hand. Layouts galore, tough choices to make, rounds and rounds of adjustments, sleepy late night press calls at the printers – all so we can reveal to you, our summer masterpiece. (labor of love, pictured above!)
Yeah… we’re absolutely biased and sure, we’d like to pat ourselves on the back for a job well done, but you all were part of the process. You’ve given us some great feedback in the past and we want to hear from you again! So first, tell us when you peek inside your mailbox and Olga, our Summer cover model, looks right back at you with her beautiful blues. Then, go through it page by page, and tell us what you think!
And if you do, you could win one of two, one-of-a-kind, summer beach hats made exclusively for our 2011 Spring catalog (pictured above). Oh what? You don’t want to wait?? You want to see it RIGHT NOW?! You’re in luck. Browse the Summer 2011 online right now, today, no waiting, boy this is great, HERE!
You asked. And asked. And asked. And Asked. And… Let’s just say you were quite persistent. And looky here- it paid off! We are very excited to bring you the SHELLY JELLY SANDAL!
When you asked for flip-flops, did you think it would be plain?? Oh no, not from us! We wanted to take the ole’ flip flop one step further (pun intended) – by adding, what else, PRINT! So we did… in Clear Summer Nights, Aquamarine Docksider and Hotty Pink Blue Eyed Girl. And then, we priced it just right, just for you.
So… did we knock your socks off??
Now this Pack for Paradise destination has 3 words that exude relaxation and vacation – Beachside, Bed and Breakfast. Say no more. We’re there! (at least in our minds) For this month’s Pack for Paradise, one winner and a guest will enjoy 3 days and 2 nights at the Henderson Park Inn as well as round trip airfare.
Your mom, your nana, your granndmother, your daughter- they are all one-of-a-kinds. No one can hold a candle to the person who has done so much for you in your life, inspired you every single day and made you feel like you will always have someone in your corner. Last year, we asked you to tell us about that woman and the stories we received absolutely melted our hearts. We’re looking for your stories (and pictures!) again this year but this time, we want to celebrate your mom’s (or grandmom’s, daughter’s, great-grandmother’s) uniqueness. You know, she’s just got that thing- that something special that just makes her an ORIGINAL- a one-of-a-kind; just like a Lilly print.
And that is why we want to honor her with a one-of-a-kind, original piece of Lilly artwork! Our print designers created this amazing, original oil painting (4 feet by 6 feet!) for our 2011 Spring catalog and so many of you asked about it that we couldn’t wait to give it to one of you. But we couldn’t just give it to anyone – it has to be the one person, the one story, that absolutely melts our heart- just like you did last year.
So tell us, who will you be celebrating this Mother’s Day? And tell us why she’s an original. Does Lilly bring you together- help you cross the generational divide? Well we can’t wait to send you (or her) this piece of original artwork from Lilly. And a prize from Lilly wouldn’t be complete without something Lilly to wear so we’re throwing in a gift card as well!
Here are the prizes:
Grand Prize: Original, 4′ x 6′ “Lilet” print oil painting canvas and a $250 gift card to lillypulitzer.com.
2nd Prize: Lilly Pulitzer clutch and a $100 gift card to lillypulitzer.com.
Submit your oh-my-melt-your-heart-what-else-can-I-say story and pictures here.
And since there are only 2 winners, you might want a back up plan. Full giveaway rules available here.
