Featured Favorite Print – Chum Bucket

Posted on May 8, 2012 in Inspiration by | 2 comments

Shop Chum Bucket

Boy oh, boy do our Lilly Lovers have some strong feelings about this print name!!  And our print designer Jeff, the ar-teest behind this print, will side with you on the eww-factor of the name – he’s not a big fan of the name either.  But you guys know- we LOVE to have fun and Janie has quite the sense of humor, so this is just us sharing our “never-take-yourself-too-seriously” side.  After all, Lilly is the creator of conversational prints and I guess that’s just what we have here! :)   Here are some quick thoughts from Jeff about the print…

1. What inspired this print?
The print was inspired by the seaside vacations I took as a child. My family would wake up early (no lazy beach vacations for us!) and take walks/runs on the beach looking for whatever treasures would wash up from the night before.  Often it was shells and little sea creatures but sometimes we found really cool stuff that my brother’s and I would inevitably fight over. (especially when it was money!)

Lilly Pulitzer Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Posted on May 7, 2012 in Style by | 1 comment

The older & WISER we get, the more we appreciate our mom and want to get her something extra-special to make sure she knows just how we feel.  (and our handprint on a paper plate with “Mom” scribbled alongside just doesn’t cut it anymore)  And the wiser we get, the better we know mom and *think* we know what she’ll like, but that certainly doesn’t make it EASY to shop for her.  We know this ;) so we categorized some Lilly goodies into different categories to help you shop for mom.  (and enjoy free shipping & $2 gift wrapping now too!)

Featured Favorite Print – You Gotta Regatta

Posted on May 4, 2012 in Inspiration by | 1 comment

SHOP You Gotta Regatta

Print Designer Paige Smith tells us a little more about the You Gotta Regatta print that we ALL gotta have this Summer!…

1. What inspired this print?
You Gotta Regatta was inspired by my summers spent on Lake Michigan. I think of the lake more as a fresh water ocean because although the water is COLD, the sand is white and the water is so clear. It is my absolute favorite place in the world. I am not a great sailor myself, my style is a little more sitting on the boat with a cocktail and possibly ducking when the boom swings. I love to sit on the porch or beach and WATCH the boats go by. I literally dream about the view all winter.

Summer Weddings Pinterest Contest

Posted on May 3, 2012 in More Fun by | 7 comments

There are sooooooo many reasons to love Summer and one of our favorites is Summer weddings.  So many of our Lilly Lovers are coastal residents either year-round or during the Summer that a lot of them choose to celebrate one of the most important days of their lives, seaside.  And for those of us who get to be in attendance at these nautical nuptials, we’re happy to raise a toast to the happy couple while we lavish in our beach-wedding-favorite sundresses and thank-goodness-they’re-appropriate-here McKims.

We decided to team up with our friends at Southern Weddings and pair the 2 things we’re loving right this minute – Summer weddings and duh, Pinterest! (follow Lilly here and follow Southern Weddings Magazine here) Sure, actually having or going to a Summer wedding beats the heck out of any online/inside activity but DREAMING about Summer weddings is absolutely a favorite hobby for both of us and doesn’t it last a lot longer than any weekend affair? You bet.  So while each of us waits for our own big day or dreams about how we’d do it differently next time, we’re content to be inspired to create a Wedding Pinterest board of any girls dreams.  And… we want YOU to do the same!  Heck, we think most of you already are!  So now you can tell your boyfriend it’s not abnormal to be creating a Lilly-inspired Summer Wedding board on Pinterest because after all, you’re just trying to win a new dress for this Summer’s wedding! ;)

Here are the rules on how to enter the Lilly Pulitzer and Southern Weddings Pinterest contest and you can view our complete contest rules here.

3 winning boards will be chosen by the Lilly Pulitzer & Southern Wedding teams and entries must be received by Friday, May 25th at 3:00pm ET.  Winners will be notified and announced by June 1, 2012.  Happy Pinning!

Fashionable Friends Meet on Madison

Posted on May 2, 2012 in Party by | 2 comments

Last night we had an amazing time as we hosted some very stylish and sweet fashion writers from NYC at our Madison Avenue Store. Admittedly we were a bit giddy about meeting these women as we’ve been following their blogs for quite a while, but we were especially excited to share the Lilly story with them and hear their feedback about our Summer line.

Love You Too Much – Happy Mother’s Day!!

Posted on May 1, 2012 in More Fun by | 1 comment

It is so nice to work for a company that values…first and foremost…family. We spend so much time talking about parties and happy times – which are spent with family and friends. (and of course, these special occasions are cause for fabulous outfits)

When I was asked to write a blog on Mother’s Day, I immediately thought of how many emails and facebook pics we get of you, our amazing customers, in your Lilly’s WITH your Moms. Or Moms with pics of their Minnies (starting them out right!). It makes me so incredibly happy and I completely relate. I thought this was the perfect time to remind ourselves how lucky we really are.

I am a Mom, which is the greatest gift AND I have an amazing Mom. I am SO EXCITED for her to read this because even though I think I tell her all the time how much I love her, I want to be positive she knows. And if you asked her, her greatest gift is that I am a good Mom (and a happy person with an amazing career and LIFE). And let’s be honest, we know she’s responsible for making me the person I am today.

My Mom is the kind of woman that will do ANYTHING for those she loves. She is incredibly straight forward and absolutely HYSTERICAL. She tells it like it is. I grew-up in Augusta, GA and my Mom would walk my brother and me to school every day. Without fail, she was there to meet us at 3:05 and walk us home. We would have a snack outside and play and then head in where we would sit in the breakfast room and watch her make dinner for us. She was just…always there – always around to take us on the next step of our journey. She was so reliable, comforting and supportive – not spoiling us with presents or things, but spoiling us with time and affection. I learned how to be a good Mom from her.

Now I have two AMAZING daughters and even though I work and can’t meet them after school, the second I get home my time is all about them. We spend HOURS cuddling. On the weekends, the three of us are stuck like glue. I know that they have a great sense of home, love and security because of the closeness we share.

Posted on April 30, 2012 in More Fun by | Comment

You’ll find prints inspired by everything from the sweet peas that grow by the ocean, to Magical Underwater Gardens (we secretly all aspire to be Ariel, don’t we?!)  Our Summer collection is blooming with sunshine, style and an extra does of happy so we can all celebrate the longest days of the year in Lilly!

Sisterhood Spotlight – Alpha Delta Pi at University of Miami

Posted on April 29, 2012 in Party by | 2 comments

When the Alpha Delta Pis from University of Miami sent their Sisterhood Spotlight board in, we couldn’t help but rethink our own choice of college campuses.  College at the beach?!?  Ummm… shell yeah! Looks like the girls make the most of the sun and fun of Florida!

1. School, Sorority & Chapter Name
University of Miami, Alpha Delta Pi, Gamma Delta chapter

2. Size of your Chapter and date/year your Chapter was founded
150 members and we were originally founded in 1947 and we recolonized in 2004.

3. Quotables
Our chapter loves the cheer, Let me hear that Pi Spirit! We chant it at every Greek event. This is how it goes:
Let me hear that Pi Spirit
What’s that you say?
Let me hear that Pi Spirit
What’s that you say?
Alpha Delta Pi
Alpha Delta Pi
Alpha Delta Pi
Woo ADPi

4. The 3 Lilly items from the Spring Collection you’ll surely find in our closets are?
a. The Original Tote in the Alpha Delta Pi print to always show that Pi-spirit around campus.
b. The State of Mind patch Callahans to colorfully beat the heat
c. The Felicity dress would be perfect as a great graduation dress.

Summer 2012 Catalog – Behind the Scenes

Posted on April 27, 2012 in Inspiration by | 2 comments

Sun, sand and LILLY PULITZER. It just rolls off the tongue…which is why our Summer catalog shoot took us beach side. (you know what they say…when duty calls!) As soon as we got one glimpse of the Summer collection against the blue sky, we could not WAIT to share it with you! Now that it’s finally here, we are thrilled!

Along with the beach side pictures, you will notice a few festive back drops. From the nautical navy stripe, to the wall of beautiful shells…oh this season is just too much fun. Our models were absolutely gorgeous as they showcased the season’s hottest shades. And speaking of shades, we are looooving the glow of neon featured on our front cover!! Yes, brighter is better. (but our Lilly girl already knows that!)

So, grab your beach chair or at least your shades (May is almost upon us) and soak in what we hope will be one of your favorite beach reads! And don’t forget to check out our behind the scenes video for a sneak peek at the Lilly Pulitzer crew on set. HAPPY SUMMER!  xx

It’s definitely the time of year for some Vitamin D.  And no need to rely on Mother Nature to bring the sunshine, these dresses bring the rays all on their own! Shine in Lilly this season!
