Preppy 101: Ode to Lilly Pulitzer

It is officially here! Preppy Blog dinner is tomorrow night. Can't wait to meet everyone in person. I wish you were ALL coming for the Lilly Pulitzer ware house sale!

First, I just have to give you a tease: I'm having the most deliciously plaid guest blogger this week. You all are going to LOVE her!

Now back to Lilly Pulitzer! Preppy challenge aside. This is literally one of my all time favorite designers!

1. I love the clothes. They are my go to brand for any occasion from wedding to shopping at Wall Mart (which I actually don't but I do go to Target).

2. They hosted my first book signing!

3. OK people! They hosted a book signing for little me, do I need to list another reason to LOVE Lilly Pulitzer?

4. My now shore bff introduced herself to me this way about 12 years ago, "Hi, my name is shore bff. My sister told me I'd like anyone who wears Lilly Pulitzer." It was love at first site! And yes, I was wearing Lilly Pulitzer. So you too can make friends by wearing it!

5. I'm decorating my new office in Lilly Pulitzer because it makes me happy! Don't you just feel a little better when you see their catalog. Or browse a Lilly book? Or go to the store? If I were an alien the store would be my mother ship!


6. I had the pleasure of attending their 50th birthday jubilee party last year in NYC at Parsons School of design. The gift bag was to die for!

7. Husband looks fabulous in Lilly Pulitzer bathing suits and ties.

Love you Lilly Pulitzer! Thank you for making my life a little brighter.

  1. Decorating your office in Lilly Pulitzer is such a great idea! Lilly always brightens my day. I always go to the Lilly store when my mood needs a little brightening (or anytime just because I love it)!

  6. Your dinner sounds so fun. I love Lilly too but can't fit my fat self into much of it any more. I have learned to satisfy my addiction with their sweaters, shoes and accessories.
    XOXO
