Lovin' Lilly

We came across this article in one of the trade publications that we read, Women’s Wear Daily. Like you, we love Lilly Pulitzer's fresh take on classic, preppy clothing. Her colorful designs are a must have for spring and summer--you can spot the timeless fun of a “Lilly” in a crowd every time.

We know that many customers are fans of our Lilly merchandise, so we thought we would share the clip here in our blog... as well as links to some great new Lilly Pulitzer items that have just been added to cwdkids.com.

LILLY'S MOMENT: It's been only about a week since Lilly Pulitzer left the hospital in Palm Beach, Fla., after an undisclosed illness, and no one thought she'd feel well enough to attend her brand's 50th anniversary celebration on Friday night at The Breakers. But the feisty 77-year-old proved her Lilly-obsessed guests wrong when she decided to pop in at the last minute. "Damn it, I'm coming," she told company president James Bradbeer. Dressed in a pink and white printed wrap top and white pants, Pulitzer proudly waved to the cheering crowd in the ballroom, before taking her seat. Guests at the event couldn't wait to have their pictures taken with her as they lined up near her chair. Pulitzer happily smiled for photos before heading home after dessert.

I remember wearing Lilly as a kid. I am so glad that you carry it now so that I can put my own kids in it. The prints are as fun as I remember!
