Just saw the trailer for the new movie about Julia Child…Julie & Julia. A girl starts a BLOG (how appropriate for us to be sharing) and makes Julia Child’s recipes for a year 365 days! Looks adorable.
The official first day of Summer!! Happy happy to everyone. Maybe now the weather can get nice up here? If you haven’t put all shoes that require socks away by now, DO IT! Replace your daily skin cream with Hawaiian Tropic and let your hair air dry. Stir up the lemonade and grab a good book. Even if you have to work tomorrow at least you have today! (Throwing out some Cape Cod love in this pic)
Because I know you have always wanted to know how to solve a Rubik’s Cube. Thank you YouTube.
Here is a little bit more about the rest of our summer intern class of ’09! We welcome them all to The Pink Palace! Click below to read about them!
Check out Kelly’s new charity collaboration with The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and Electolux Appliances. This summer you can open a virtual lemonade stand and invite friends on Facebook and Twitter to visit for a chance to help you win some sweet loot for the kitchen and most importantly help raise money for ovarian cancer awareness and research. You can customize your stand’s color, signage, name and even choose 3 flavors to open up shop with. What a “cool” idea!!! (*pun absolutely intended.)
Brooke Shields and Town&Country Mag hit our Madison Avenue Lilly Pulitzer Store by storm last Tuesday night. There were over 300 people (invite only) who squeezed in to join the fun and share in our celebration of color. Brooke was there to promote the Colorful Cause designer collection done with 8 other celeb moms with proceeds benefiting EBMRF. You can check out these celeb styles at your local Lilly store or shop online! Come on, it’s for the kids (no really, it is.)
We had so much fun with our Facebook Fans this week! We first of all want to thank everyone for helping on our quest for 13,000! As you know about a week ago, we challenged Lilly Lovers everywhere to expand our Lilly Family. If we met our goal, 20 lucky fans were going to be invited to have a private tour of the corporate office. Although we were 100 fans away from reaching our 13,000 facebook fans goal on Tuesday night…we were SO impressed with the enthusiasm from our fans (and always love an excuse to throw a party), that we decided to pick 20 lucky Facebook fans anyways. 5 fans were able to make it wednesday and we had another 11 today. On Wednesday, Scott Beaumont, CEO, gave a history of the brand on and tour of the building while Rebecca one of our print designers wow’ed them with upcoming prints for next summer. They also got a sneak peak of the Resort ’09 line! There were squeals of excitement, lots of smiles, and of course hugs to go around.
We’re already up to 13,650 fans today… how quick can we get to 25,000? Suggestions? Facebook@lillypulitzer.com
Just getting back from a 4:30am shift at the warehouse sale!! It was so great to see so many happy people who love Lilly! I know it was an early morning but I was greated with so much happiness and color it was well worth waking up a few hours early
Carson Kressley, in town for the Devon Horse Show, stopped by our offices to draw some prints with the print team on Friday, we of course had to share!

They will be doing blog posts on Fridays talking about their experiences here at Lilly HQ this summer and their love for the Lilly Life! Here’s a quick bio of some who have already arrived, stay tuned for more in the coming weeks. Read more to get their bios!
