Brides can’t have all the fun. Don’t be afraid to laugh, flirt, dance and dazzle at this years nuptials. And if your bestie says white dresses are a no-no well that’s easy, wear PINK! Keep your eyes peeled as we roll out the pink carpet for some of our most favorite dresses – they’re sure to please but whatever you do, don’t upstage the bride. That just might be harder than it sounds in a Lilly.

We think it’s very fitting that pink makes us feel vibrant, warm and alive – that’s why Lilly lovers always party in pink [and prints]!
This past Saturday, to help kick start our week long celebration of pink, Lilly Pulitzer sponsored the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Arts first annual Ringling in Bloom weekend. This special event was dedicated to the memory of Mable Ringling, whose passion for flowers and horticulture is evident in the glorious grounds and gardens of the Ringling Estate. The inspiration behind the exhibit, Gardens in Perpetual Bloom, began with the inspiration from some of the top Florists in the Sarasota area. Each designer’s fresh floral arrangement directly inspired a masterpiece from the Ringling’s collection, and the exhibition itself was developed by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Given the fact that the exhibit was inspired by florals, we felt it very fitting to be the presenting sponsor of such a special weekend.
The event said Lilly in every way possible… and the space we were working with is quite incredible. A giant PINK museum!?? What more could we ask for? From the design of the invitation to the event brochure, to the gift bags, tablecloths, the uniform; this PINK museum was transformed into a colorful playground. The attire, Lilly or Louder, could be seen throughout the grounds and many Shauna tunics, Twyla’s, Clare’s, Susan’s, and Newports, were SPOTTED throughout the day.

The headline of the February issue of House Beautiful says it all - “The Power of Pink!” You know we couldn’t agree more! And it’s not enough to just wear it or gloss it across your lips and fingertips- we want to absolutely surround ourselves with the warm and energizing color of the year. Enter the Lilly Pulitzer home furniture collection. In true Lilly style the furniture will include pops of pink and trims inspired by lace detail – all done in a fresh and clean style with a mid-century classic feel. Absolutely show stopping chic. Did I mention there’d be pink and print?
A couple of people have been lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the collection and boy oh boy, it’s absolutely breathtaking.

All week long, we’re celebrating our most favorite color….which OF COURSE is PINK! We do have love affairs with other colors but it’s safe to say pink is our most “committed relationship.” So now you’re thinking, doesn’t Lilly celebrate pink every day? Well obviously we do. But it’s not just the heart shaped holiday around the corner prompting us to celebrate pink even more this week- actually it’s the recognition our good friends at Pantone gave pink when they announced the selection of Honeysuckle Pink as the 2011 Color of the Year. We couldn’t be more thrilled that they are telling the world what we’ve known for years; the color pink is known to lift spirits, instill confidence and even elevate our psyche. And Honeysuckle Pink just happens to bear a veeeery close resemblance to one of our longtime favorites, Hotty Pink.
Janie Schoenborn, Lilly Pulitzer Print Design Director, will tell you “Pink simply makes the world a better place. Whether you are dipped in it, wrapped in it or just using it as an accent…painting your house pink…painting your nails pink…dying your poodle pink…eating pink lemonade ice cream…or watching Pretty In Pink. There is no color quite like it. It has put a smile on our face for over 50 years being Lilly Pulitzer. Makes 2011 look like a pretty fun year!”
Oh, and yes it is true, we DO work in a pink building. We’re literally surrounding ourselves in pink and we feel pretty happy, confident, powerful and courageous every day!

Less than 15 minutes from our Pink Palace headquarters is the soon-to-be home of the newly relocated Lilly Pulitzer retail store in the divine Suburban Square. The print design team has been lending their fine art skills to create in-store magic, Lilly style- this time with our friend here, the Giraffe! (he’s a bit naked now but rest-assured, he’ll be in his Lilly finery by opening) And we couldn’t help but get excited by the window dressing, teasing all the passers-by with what’s to come.
Stay tuned as we roll out details for our blowout Grand Opening bash happening on Thursday, March 10th at 6:30. This is one party you won’t want to miss! xx
