1/ Ferra Dress 2/ Witherbee Polo & Callahan Shorts 3/ Paley V-Neck Sweater & Buttercup Shorts 4/ Carded ID Wristlet 5/ Resort Chic Wedge Perforated 6/ Skinny Belt 7/ Trellis Tote 8/ As Good As Gold Wedge

Though we have a vacation mind-set most of the days, our bodies don’t necessarily travel with us.  Which is why we ALL look forward to Spring Break!  (truth is we’ve been looking forward to it since January 2nd when we realized our holiday vacation days are behind us!)  And Lilly girls always follow the sun so we CAN’T WAIT to pull out our Summer clothes credit cards and get some new warm weather duds!

Here are some goodies from our Spring line that are packable and pretty so we can say see ya’ to the city! (and head for the sand!)

Behind the Scenes Style – Bright Cheeks & Lips

Posted on March 14, 2012 in More Fun, Style by | 138 comments

We had a great response last month when we shared our first “Behind the Scenes Style” post so we wanted to do it again.  Because our Spring line is all about being pretty we asked Shannon for makeup tips  that would do just that. Is it any wonder that her answer to pretty is pink cheeks and lips?! Of course not! And we were thrilled when Ford Artists offered to do a giveaway of Shannon’s suggested products to our readers! (winning these is a sure-fire way to get the look!)  So we are giving away 2 sets of the following items:

Benefit Posietint Poppy-pink tinted lip & cheek stain- $29.00 value
Benefit Coralista Cheek powder- $28.00 value
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Pink Petal- $19.00 value
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Melondrama- $19.00 value
Smashbox Face & Cheek Brush #2- $48.00 value
Smashbox Retractable Lip Brush #18- $24.00 value
Approximate retail value of entire prize pack- $167.00

Enter to win by leaving a comment about which of these beauty products you’d most like to try.  (or if you’re already a fan of these products, which ones you can’t live without!)  2 random winners will be chosen next Tuesday at 3:00pm ET from the comments below & notified via e-mail.

Buttoned up & Ladylike

1/ Bibi Dress 2/ Adriana Dress & Camila Coat 3/ Parker Dress 4/ Adelia Dress & Alani Coat

Since Spring is all. about. pretty., we HAVE to talk about the trend of Ladylike dresses. Trend? OK so no- ladylike is ALWAYS in style and you can always count on Lilly to bring you those styles that make you feel feminine and flirty but also flatter your figure with full skirts, swingy styles and sophisticated textures that make you feel ladylike and… PRETTY!

One word: PRETTY.  We think that best sums up our latest Spring delivery. I mean, sure, we’re biased but c’mon, this delivery has all the makings… lots of pink (here, here and here), beautiful blossoming prints (here, here and here) and patterns that pop (here, here and here).  It’s just March 1st but February, January, December — they’re all HISTORY – Spring is blooming and we’re celebrating it’s arrival with Pretty Pink Perfection!

Everyone knows we are totally in love with colorful prints, but sometimes the occasion just calls for WHITE. And in our latest Spring delivery, we’re doing white just right – with fun texture and details!  Lilly’s LWDs make quite the statement and are the preeettiest option for graduation, initiation or a warm weather date!  The best part? Accessorize with any and EVERY color!!

Behind the Scenes Style

Just like Lilly, our Lilly Lovers loooove the details – and not just Lilly details – every detail. Questions like “what shade of lipstick does your model have on in the picture of the Whinnie dress?” or “what color nail polish is the model wearing in this catalog shot?” come up all the time. Questions like this inspired us to partner with our on-shoot stylists from Ford Artists to create a series here on the blog about how you can get the looks we’re featuring.

All of our tips are from Shannon Grey Williams, a Lilly girl herself (she panicked when she realized her headshot featured her in black! *gasp*), who loves working on the Lilly set creating fun, happy and pretty styling for our models.  She’ll be providing the step-by-step on how to get these looks yourself all the way down to WHAT products she uses for styling. This week she’s sharing her know-how on creating the fishtail braid- an adorable look she used on Elsa here!  We hope you enjoy this new series and stay tuned next month to get our next look!

Silhouettes in Bloom

Posted on February 2, 2012 in More Fun, Style by | Comment

 This Spring, some of our long-adored dresses have bloomed into new silhouettes.  All your fave dresses + all our fave trends = everyone’s new must-haves for Spring!  The Lottie, Blossom’s little sister, has the same structure with a bit more simplicity- it’s the perfect body style to let the print do the talking! Our darling Clare has transformed into Cherrie with some added shirring detail at the empire waist for shaping but minus the ruffles at the neckline.

And the HOT, HOT, HOT love affair with our cool, cotton slub jersey just got hotter with the introduction of the Somerset in Spring! Same body style with an added ruffle for femininity & whimsy! And Whinnie is the love child of the sassy, one-shouldered Whitaker and the ruffled, flirty Wynn top – win-win-whinnie!

Don’t worry, your fab-fun-favorites will still be around to help you come alive with color in the coming months!
