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.

Summer 2012 is Bloomin’ By the Sea!

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

Summer, Summer, Summer… of course it’s our FAVORITE season!

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!

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!

Sisterhood Spotlight – Kappa Delta at the University of West Georgia

Posted on in Party by | Comment

This week’s Sisterhood Spotlight is a few days late for GOOD reason.  The KD girls of UWG were in the midst of finals last week and opted for studying and maintaining their rep for having the highest grades of all the Greek Organizations on their campus for 5 years running – their parents would be proud. (A Lilly graduation dress maybe, dad?)  And with grades like that, there’ll be more green & white in their future ;)

1. School, Sorority & Chapter Name:
University of West Georgia, Kappa Delta, Delta Psi

2. Size of your Chapter and date/year your Chapter was founded:
87 Active Members, Founded April 3, 1971

3. The 3 Lilly items from the Spring Collection you’ll surely find in our closets are:
a. The Murfette Scarf is perfect year round, and we LOVED adding the KD one to our collections!
b. Scallop AND print? We can’t get enough of the Buttercup shorts!
c. The Aleesa dress is the perfect dress for all of the graduations, weddings, and get-togethers this spring!
