We are simply beaming after returning from West Palm Beach (the land of all things Lilly) this week. The Spring 2011 collection looks AMAZING. I know we say this every time, but this is definitely the best collection ever. It seriously keeps getting better and better.
During our trip, we had a long day of viewing the Spring collection and writing orders. We keep all of our sweet customers in mind and this time we made sure to stock up on requested sizes and even ordered MORE and MORE just to ensure we would always have enough! To break up our long day, Lilly Pulitzer herself surprised us and came to have lunch with us. We had the privilege to meet Lilly before in December and it was a treat to have lunch with her again. She laughed and carried on with us as if she'd known us her entire life. It was so neat to hear her fun stories and how it all began. She even mentioned spending time in Aiken, SC during her childhood and she knew exactly where Greenwood, SC was, so we like to believe Lilly has a little "Carolina Girl" in her =)
WE LOVE HER!
The inspiration behind Lilly's Spring 2011 collection is The Fine Arts with a focus on Impressionism. For instance, this gorgeous print here... Obsessed.
One shoulder style will continue to be a strong style in Spring
As Rachel Zoe says, these next two styles are OOC - "OUT OF CONTROL".
Amazing design and bold, colorful prints.
The Kiki Dress (on left) is a new style and so flattering once on. The Shauna dress (on right) is new for Fall 2010 and is already a sell out just in pre-orders. Definitely make room in your closet for these two beauties next Spring...
Lilly isn't just pink and green. How about pink and orange?
We love this unique dress and it looks DARLING on.
beautiful white dresses with a splash of artful color.
We're thinking Easter...
so many bright, fun prints! We stocked up on shorts - printed and solids.
Definitely a staple for Spring & Summer and great price points!
Here's Kimberly (of Blossom Shoes & Such) , Lisa (of The Frilly Frog), her employee Margaret, and myself out by the pool before dinner with our awesome Lilly team.
Can't wait for you to see the rest of the collection in just a few months.
Shipments will begin in January. Can you believe it?
Let us know if there is anything you've fallen in love with (we sure have) and we can call you as soon as it arrives!
