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!

Stock up for Spring!

We know a thing or two about brightening up the dull days of Winter. For starters, we usher Spring in at the end of January so we can *think* Spring before it actually is Spring. (Perhaps it’s a coincidence that today will get up to 60 degrees here at the Pink Palace but we do believe in the power of positive thinking!) We are loving all the printed tops from our first Spring delivery- bright and bold and BINGO! they work under sweaters if all that positive thinking didn’t quite get through to Mother Nature.  So pile on the prints, bring on the brights and THINK SPRING with our printed tops!

Fresh Petals and Prints – The Cherry Blossom

Posted on January 30, 2012 in Inspiration by | Comment

As we celebrate our theme for Spring, Full Bloom, we thought we’d share a little bit more about the petals that inspired us to create our Spring prints.  We’re kicking off our first installment of “Fresh Petals and Prints” with the Cherry Blossom!  Would we worship the Cherry Blossom if it weren’t pink? (some are white, you know)  Well sure we would, but honestly, its pink blooms help make it a favorite around the Pink Palace.  Here are some quick facts about this historical flower that beautifies Washington DC in the Spring and graces a number of prints in our first Spring delivery!


1. Bright Navy Cherry Mine 2. Hotty Pink A Thing Called Love 3. Bright Navy Cherry Picker 4. Bright Navy Cherry Wine  5. Resort White Flowers and the Trees


• There is a National Cherry Blossom Festival that’s held in early spring, every year in DC, to commemorate the 3,000 cherry trees donated by Tokyo in 1912 (the first 2,000 trees actually had to be burned when they arrived after being shipped from Japan because they were infested with insects & disease)   There are now about 3,750 cherry trees in the tidal basin in Washington, DC.

We are very excited to introduce you all to Jessica Lane, our newest Marketing Intern here at the Pink Palace.  For the most part, Jessica’s going to be behind-the-scenes, but from time to time we’ll make ask  her to share her perspective as the newest member of our Lilly family!  And here she is!…

Hi Lilly Lovers! I’m working as an intern right now in the Marketing Department at Lilly Pulitzer and I wanted to share a little bit about myself! I’m from a small town in CT called Simsbury and have lived there for most of my life. Growing up in New England, Lilly Pulitzer has been in my closet forever, but I have to say- I never imagined I would be able to be a part of such a wonderful company!

Touchy Feely Prints

Posted on January 19, 2012 in Inspiration by | Comment

Who would think that such a funny looking creature could look so darn cute in print?! Lilly does tend to have that effect on critters. Well we absolutely LOVE the the 8 legged friends that made their debut in our latest Resort collection.  Did you know that octupuses (yes, octopuses, not octopi, BTW!) are one of the most intelligent of all invertebrates? And won’t you look smart in our Touchy Feely prints?!  The Taytay Dress in Resort White Hands Off is a fan fave shift this season.

And we added a little fun to our Main Line jeans with some embroidered cephalopods (thank you, Wikipedia!)  And there was no way we’d leave these suction-cupped cuties out of our swimwear line! So be sure to check out our mini-Touchy Feely print in our string bikini, bandeau bikini, tankini, 1 piece and men’s trunks!

And don’t miss our Sloane Maxi Dress and Westerly Dress. More than 8 ways to wear our touchy feely friends!
