Stripes with prints? Florals with dots? You dare not but we dare you. After all, it’s all the rage this season! That’s right, we double dog dare you to double down with a little Break a Leg and Showtime Dot. You can certainly pull off a little polka with a kick.
We took the guess work out of it for you with both the Adelie wrap dress and Kelsi Dress. Throw it on and get your thrills!
You definitely don’t want your shoes to outshine your outfit. So keep them simple (but still totalllly awesome) with our Navy Resort Chic Wedge Patent Ostrich. They are the perfect compliment to your print- mixed ensemble.
Is it a bit theatrical? Perhaps. But we think our Lilly Lovers like to put on a good show.

We had a blow out BASH at the Oceana Hamptons Splash event this past Saturday night (did you see the pics!?) We took over Margie & Michael Loeb’s beautiful Southampton home with over 400 guests. We know how to throw a party having learned from the quintessential entertainer, Lilly Pulitzer herself! Didn’t get to join in on the fun? Be in the know and read on! Read More

This week we’re happy to feature another Pink Palm store as our Store of the Week! This time we’re headed to the lovely city of Richmond where they love all their customers- especially the Minnies and the furry kind!
Come find us!
6233 River Road, Richmond, VA
Store hours- 10-6 Monday-Saturday, 12-5 Sunday
Find us online, Fan us on Facebook & Follow us on Twitter!
A little bit about us: The Pink Palm was established in 2002 by Lizanne Jeveret and David Holmes. As we approach our ten year anniversary, we are proud to say that we offer the largest selection of Lilly Pulitzer clothing, shoes, and accessories in the Commonwealth of Virginia!
This fall, we continue our love of everything arts with a focus on DRAMA. The drama of a good entrance is what you will be celebrating with our yummy Fall prints and patterns. Get your ticket, stand behind the velvet rope, grab some popcorn and get ready for lights, camera, Lilly!
We start off with our best act on July 25th… which is to pretend that Summer isn’t coming to an end. We SET THE STAGE for Fall while extending Summer… every last glorious second of summer… knowing that *le sigh*, you’ll be wearing a sweater over these outfits later. But this delivery was built for that! Colors are navy popped with kelly green & pink tomato and of course, sprinkled with florals. The prints and patterns start you on the yellow — scratch that — Pink [lip-glossed] road to Lilly land!
On August 25th THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE LILLY! One of our all time favorite classics, The Wizard of Oz, is the perfect theme for our big performance. Lions, monkeys, and Scottie dogs- love! (we’re not letting the scary, green witch into this performance) Colors are extremely rich and lush with the glitz of gold that every performance demands. It is absolutely acceptable to play the part of the drama queen when you are decked out in these ladylike dresses. Look for a secret surprise in every print- critters and ruby slippers are hidden everywhere!
Well folks, show’s over.. now it’s time to party! September 25th is a CAST OF CHARACTERS. Every color, every print, every pattern, every chic style says, “please wear me & hold a cocktail in your hand.” Oh wait – not in the pick up line at school. (though in these prints everything you do feels like a party!) These colors are easy to wear, fun, and flawlessly stylish. There’s no place like Lilly for your performance and after-party!

Oh how we love the entrepreneurial woman. How could we not? We’d be nowhere if it wasn’t for one young woman with a flair for fashion, a bevvy of stylish & fabulous friends, a way with entertaining and trouble sitting still. In fact, that combination has added up to some incredibly successful brands we all know and love (like this one, this one, and this one) & some brands & ladies we’re just now falling in love with. (like this one, this one, & this one)
And the way that each & every one of them started their business was to roll up their sleeves & get working – working on getting their product in front of friends who would ultimately fall in love with their brand and spread the word. And that’s where Lilly comes in. We throw a mean party- this you know. We loooove to meet new, cool, stylish people- also not a surprise. But did you know we love to host those parties, with those peeps, in our stores? Well now you do!
We call them “Trunk Shows” but like much of what we do, they’re just another excuse to have a party. If you’re an entrepreneur and would like to host a Trunk Show at one of our corporate retail stores, let us know! We’d love to play host to your fancy friends and help you get the word out about your baby. (because when it’s your business, it’s your baby!)
Find a Lilly Pulitzer store closest to you and contact us at email@example.com to get this party started!
As we round out Summer with the blues, our fresh, cotton Chambray is the perfect lightweight choice to take you into Fall. It’s simple yet not so simple (a lot like us Lilly girls!) – we’ve used extra fine yarn to keep it light and weaved in white cotton slub for added texture & interest. And because we’re always aaaalll about details, we couldn’t keep things plain – so we made them pretty with ruffles, embroidery and flower appliques! Feminine. Fresh. Fun.
How to transition these pieces into Fall? Follow along…
Add a Murfee Scarf to your Essie Shirtdress to darken the look and take off the chill.
Pair the Avery Skirt with the Benton Tunic Sweater in Navy.
Wear your Dupre Top over Main Line Jeans and a Katia Wrap.
Still easy- still chic!

As we get closer & closer to our Hamptons Splash event, we thought it would be the perfect time to play host to Oceana’s Vice President for Global Development, Bettina Alonso. Lilly prints are constantly inspired by the sea, sand & sun and we love the good work Oceana does to preserve our Lilly Lover’s playground! We also have a special place in our hearts for marine wildlife and even the gorgeous coral so many of them live in – what’s not to love?! (well maybe these- we don’t love them so much) We’ve asked Bettina to fill us in on what Oceana is up to in hopes it will convince you to support them by coming to our event on July 30th!
What are the mission and goals of Oceana?
Oceana is the largest international organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Our teams of scientists, lawyers, and economists advocate for specific and concrete policy changes on an international scale that tackle issues like pollution, and preventing the irreversible collapse of fish population, marine mammals, and key habitats. We have a track record of securing tangible victories for the oceans all around the world.
