A little over a week ago, the doors to a beautiful and colorful (surprise!) store opened and we all basked in the glory of our new store location in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Tomorrow night, we invite you to bask along with us. (and by bask, we mean shop!) The red carpet will be rolled out at 6pm for a Grand Opening event that will go down in Suburban Square history books. (seeing as that might not exist, we’ll just say we’re sure it will be memorable!) There will be punch (not the minnie kind, either) and passed hors devours, live music, swag bags, paintings by the print designers, and raffles! Did I mention there will be punch?! (though it’s tempting, swinging from those chandeliers is not recommended)

The Lilly Pulitzer Cruiser Bicycle is BACK, and better than ever. We took last year’s bike, in our favorite pink and green Full Sun print, and gave it a colorful face lift. We were inundated with great photos of our customers cruising the boardwalks of their local resort towns, where Lilly first formed her business, and knew we had to bring this bike back and make it even more special! We weighed in with our Facebook fans to vote on a print design (and Janie…of course, we had to consult with Janie!) and by popular demand we’re bring the bike back in our favorite BLUE summertime print… Stuffed Shells!

Yes, it’s true, we do have a crush on Jonathan Adler. His love and appreciation for bold, beautiful, “kaleidoscopic” colors fits perfectly into our world of print and pattern. He will never limit himself to boring color palettes and neither will we!
We were so honored when he mentioned Lilly Pulitzer in his new book “Happy Chic-Colors” and even more smitten when he signed TWO copies and delivered them to us. Although we would love to hold on to these treasures forever we thought it would be more fun to share them with you!
Simply fill out this entry form and you’ll be entered to win! Two winners will be chosen at random next Tuesday, March 8th at 4:00ET and contacted via e-mail (be sure to provide that in the entry form).

Earlier today we put you up to the challenge of naming some of our most favorite prints for Spring- any luck? Hope so! Now that your seeking skills are sharpened, we thought we’d throw another fun challenge your way!
These colorful bits shown above were taken during the build out of the highly anticipated, much talked about, polished and practically perfect NEW ARDMORE LILLY PULITZER RETAIL STORE! (can you tell we’re excited?!) We guarantee a visit to this jewel box of a location will have you lingering for hours. Around each corner is a vivid surprise – the décor is equally as exciting as the Spring Collection!
And now for your challenge…. print these numbered swatches and bring them with you to the Ardmore Store located at 25 Coulter Avenue Ardmore, PA 19003. Take your time and examine every wall, corner and dressing room (don’t forget the bathroom- that’s a hint!) Identify all 8 details and win a $25.00 gift card. How fun is that?! A true treasure hunt with a reward you can put to instant use! Good Luck!
(This delightful treasure hunt ends when the 10th person has received their bounty! Ask the Store Manager for details- but not help!)
As fun as Lilly Pulitzer prints are all by themselves, the names of the prints are often just as cute and talked about. Boy oh boy are our designers clever! We thought we’d put you to the test this Friday and see if you knew the names of some of our favorite spring prints that celebrate fine art. And as if that wasn’t fun enough, we’re turning it into a contest! Here is how it will work:
In the time it takes to button, zip or snap, wearing a Lilly can turn a ho-hum day into an I-know-I’m-going-to-remember-this-forever kinda day. Calendar Girl is a print that embodies that idea- a year full of special dates and meaningful moments- all in one adorable and collection-worthy print! We are absolutely in love with Calendar Girl- and we’ve heard you are too! That couldn’t make us, and the fabulous print designer Paige, who was the brainchild behind this print, any happier!
What are some of the fun things that make this print your fav? Is it October’s witch on a broom with her tag-a-long cat Fifi? Or maybe it’s January’s resort-ready luggage stack surrounded by palm trees. I’m partial to April’s wellie wearing gal because we share our birthday month. Perhaps it’s the more hidden gems that make this print special. Finding the Lilly sent me on a treasure hunt- not so easy to find in this one! And I also went on a treasure hunt — all the way down to the print design studio — to find an answer to the pink calendar dates mystery. Paige explained that each date highlighted in pink is a print designer’s birthday! How fun! They threw in some extra special days that she didn’t reveal- after all, don’t we girls have to keep some things a mystery?
We encourage you to make this print your own- and some of you have already done that! From embroidered birthdays on your dresses to Sharpied circles on your totes, we love that you’re making 2011 a special year with Lilly! This fav is selling fast so head in stores now to find yours! xx

Market Bags, iPhone Covers, iPad Covers, Netbook/iPad Sleeves, Beach Coolers, Oh my!
If Lilly Pulitzer put out an album once every 2 years, we just KNOW you would camp out for it, right? Well we’re not much for crooning and we’ll stick to the arts we know [print design!], but the anticipation we’ve had for our Spring launch of stationary and gifts has been ah-ah-ah-amazing!! I mean, what’s a cell phone carrying, iPad using, tailgate going, party throwing, grocery shopping, letter writing, coffee drinking Lilly lover to do?? Choose plain? Oh no you didn’t. And you don’t have to. xx
