I will always love Lilly Pulitzer

“Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink.” – RIP Lilly Pulitzer (1931-2013)

Today the world lost the design legend Lilly Pulitzer. This colorful lady will always remind me of my happy childhood with memories of each occasion in her signature prints.

I will always treasure the few minutes I shared a brief conversation with a nice lady while shopping at C. Orrico in Palm Beach in early 90's. We chatted about the amazing new Lilly designs that had been reintroduced and were exclusive to C. Orrico. She asked me where I was in college and about myself. As my mother and I checked out the salesperson said, "you know that was Lilly Pulitzer right?" 

The nice lady was Lilly. 

I imagine it is summer in heaven today. It will be a more colorful place to be graced with Lilly Pulitzer

    Beautiful tribute to a legend!  My brother met her a couple of years ago when my nephew was working with a golf pro in Florida.  they had joined her club.  He talked about how friendly she always was and about her brightly adorned golf cart.  What a lovely lady!

    My 17 year old daughter wore a Lilly dress to school today in what feels like the first day of spring in NY.  Seems like a fitting tribute to this amazingly talented woman.  I may have to do the same! What a charming story of your own Lilly moment.
