BOAST. I love this brand. Always have. It reminds me of the laid back boys I had crushes on in my school days. IN FACT, my first kiss (7th grade, Augusta Country Club, Lee Brigham) the boy was wearing a red BOAST shirt with navy tipping on the collar. So back in 2010, when I read that the BOAST brand was purchased, I was thrilled.
This year is ALL about the party. Big fetes, little soirees and everything in between. Any reason is a good reason to celebrate. Each month we’ll be sharing with you our party plans so you can make plans of your own to join us! Find a time in November to dress up and party with Lilly!
This year we’re using print and color to toast all the occasions we celebrate in Lilly… consider this your invitation to the party of the year. Come visit us in store and online for monthly…weekly…daily events to celebrate. Cheers!
Save the date – October 6 – to shop for a cause! In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, we will be hosting a nationwide in-store “Shop & Share” event on Saturday, October 6. During our all-day event, ten percent of in-store sales will be donated to The Breast Cancer Charities of America (BCCA). We’re excited to be working with this organization again this year in raising funds for their unique programs. The donation will benefit BCCA’s primary program services, The Help Now Fund (an emergency financial assistance program that helps with the rent and utilities of breast cancer patients who are going through treatment), and The University Education Program.

Lilly has officially crossed the border! Island View is the newest member of the Signature Store family in Muskoka, Canada and is also the first Signature Store in Canada EVER! Muskoka, Ontario (close to Toronto) was named as the #1 Summer Destination by National Geographic (perfect, right?!) and is known as “cottage country” to its visitors. People come from all over Canada to relax and enjoy the town’s many gorgeous lakes and we don’t blame them! It’s so beautiful we’re considering moving there ourselves! Muskoka and the new Island View store is a match made in a Lilly Lover’s heaven.
Yesterday was National Wear Your Lilly Day- the chicest holiday of the year! We LOVE celebrating the start of our favorite season by getting decked out in our favorite Lilly. Although Lilly Lovers never need an excuse to throw a party, we love to toast our lighthearted lifestyle and the continuously sunny days to come! For us, wearing Lilly is not only a sign of Summer- it’s also a sign of something special – this really rang true yesterday when I saw all the amazing pictures you all posted. It’s pretty incredible, and I can’t think of another brand that has this same MAGIC. In the Pink Palace, we call it Pixie Dust. It is ONE of the many reasons I love my job (ok ok, the parties are another)
We adore Summer weddings. What’s better than spending a beautiful evening with friends celebrating everlasting love?? (we’re saps, what can we say) And let’s be honest, we also love any excuse to buy and wear a new frock! (cocktails will be served, right?)
Speaking of something new… here are 3 looks for 3 different weddings we’re headed to this Summer…
We are sad to be bringing our chapter of “Sorority Spotlights” to a close, but we’re excited to have saved the best for last! (well they were voted “Best Sorority on Campus” for the last 2 years! ) Today we’re featuring the Theta girls from SMU, and we’re excited to have one of their members as an intern here at the Pink Palace this summer! We hope you enjoyed the 15 chapters we featured here on the blog- we LOVED shining the spotlight on these fabulous women and their dynamic organizations. We’re always looking for fun ways to showcase our Lilly Lovers, so let us know you if you have idea for us here on the Colorful blog! And now we bring you the lovely ladies of Kappa Alpha Theta!
1. School, Sorority & Chapter Name
Southern Methodist University: Kappa Alpha Theta, Beta Sigma Chapter
2. Size of your Chapter and date/year it was founded
Theta has been on the SMU campus since March 10, 1929 and 175 Thetas currently call SMU home.
4. The 3 Lilly items from the Summer Collection you’ll surely find in our closets are:
1. Clifton Short: SMU Thetas are bold and bright! We love the new neon colors Lilly is offering, and these shorts are a necessity in the Dallas heat.
2. The Kolby Dress: A balance of pretty and sass! It comes in white and navy, which are both perfect to wear on The Boulevard before a football game!
3. Keene Bandeau: We love hanging out at the SMU tanning pool after class or on the weekend! With this swim top, we don’t ever have to worry about getting awful tan lines.
Tonight marks the first of four evenings in June that Lilly Pulitzer will be hosting “Cocktails in the Garden” at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens with a dress code of “Lilly or Louder.” (the first 50 guests dressed in Lilly will receive a special gift bag!) June’s theme, “Hydrangeas & Honeybees,” will make for a beautiful cocktail party that includes a DJ, chef demos in their Edible Garden, and cultural performances. The event includes a specialty cocktail and dinner available at the MetroFresh cafe.
