Since Operation Smile was founded in Norfolk, VA in 1982 they have helped over 130,000 children across the globe. They work in over 51 countries helping children born with cleft lips and other facial deformities. There are over 500 student organizations across the U.S. building awareness and fundraising in American schools. The types of facial deformities they work with not only affect the physical health of these children but they greatly affect their ability to partake in childhood activities and friendships. We are proudly partnering with Operation Smile for our in-store event at 1020 Madison Avenue tomorrow night from 6-8pm. 10% of proceeds will be donated from sales both Wednesday and Thursday (if you are unable to attend the event). Come mingle and meet some great New Yorkers involved with this amazing organization. Click here to learn more on their website.
No one loves the sun more than us!! And we always wear our sunscreen! A study this spring showed that 31% of Americans never wear sunscreen! Ah!!! We love to tan but more importantly we’d love to be mistaken for our daughters’ sisters! So remember that this summer when you’re on the beach make sure you’re covered with sunscreen and don’t forget to reapply. Here’s a little note from our friends at Supergoop…
Summer Sun Safety with Supergoop! SPF 30 (say that 7x fast!)
The LILLY PULITZER LIFESTYLE is about celebrating and defining summer style. We want everyone to enjoy the summer months, but do so safely–be it putting floaties on your toddlers, or applying broad spectrum SPF 30 suncare, we must protect ourselves and our entire family.
We are excited to have you partner with DOCTOR T’S SUPERGOOP! to help spread the word about the importance of daily sun safety. By encouraging families to form these habits early in life it is not only protective but also increases the likelihood that children will continue to practice these habits. Supergoop! SPF 30 makes this daily routine fun and simple for the entire family.
Stop by Madison Avenue, East Hampton and Palm Beach Gardens for your free Supergoop! SPF 30 Flip-Top Tube as a gift with all purchases this July!

What are the interns up to you ask? Check out this week’s question Rhianna asked the girls.
What is one funny or interesting occurrence that has happened as a Lilly intern so far?
Samantha Wolf: While working the register at the warehouse sale I saw a really great looking pregnant woman (I’m talking- looked like she had a beach ball under her dress, no weight any where else) and asked when she was due and she said “Oh they’re inducing me tomorrow!” Nothing like doing anything for Lilly.
Danielle Fichter: One interesting thing that happened to me as a Lilly intern occurred when I got a chance to spend a day with one of the designers. I was helping her look through old Vogue magazines and we found some vintage Lilly ads from the 1970s! They’re awesome and I actually have some decorating my desk right now!!!
Last week we hosted an on-campus event at a local DZ sorority house and brought the Lilly store to them! 30 girls sipped cocktails and shopped racks hand picked for them! Girls who spent over a certain amount were able to place an order for a polo with their letters on it! We had so much fun that we’d love to party with more of you! We can come to you or you can take over your local Lilly store for private shopping. Let us know if you’re interested. Send your sorority, school and contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hurry get on our Fall calendar to make sure your sisters are stylish for the school year!
This past weekend In the Pink on Main Street in Chatham, MA celebrated Lilly’s 50th Jubilee! We took over the front lawn with vintage garments enticing vacationers to stop inside and try on something new…no one was leaving empty handed! As the day progressed we served cupcakes and cocktails and danced to the bandstand music across the street. It was a good old fashioned New England weekend complimented perfectly by pink! Stop by Mashpee Commons as the Retrospective and the Lilly Jeep travel up-cape for another party this Saturday!
Found this..totally adoreable whether it’s for the kids’ bathtime or for mom’s relaxing escape. It’s always important to add those little unexpected elements to life. Plus- having this guy in the drain is MUCH better than the real deal haha… Cheers and Happy Bubbles!
Went for a swim with our friends’ dogs today and then off to meet up for a boat ride out to a small “island” beach. Took the boat out of a Lilly summertime-mecca of sorts. (If you know this town you will understand. ) Nearly scorched my feet off trekking over the sand but dominated in a game of Frisbee to make up for it. The seals seemed very interested in the bright colors of my Lilly swim suit. A late afternoon cocktail on a rooftop deck at The Pearl overlooking the harbor and the best food on earth..oysters….
Where are we?
This week Rhianna asked our lovely interns: If you could give every Lilly Lover in the world one item in our stores now, what would it be and why?
See what they answered!
