Lilly Pulitzer opens tomorrow (8/8) , and I have a behind-the-scenes peek for you!
Trust me, you’ll find no shortage of signature pretty prints, happy hues and eye-candy detail. The Lilly team has been working around the clock to get the store ready for tomorrow’s big day! I popped in to snap some pictures as 11th hour preps were underway.
Here is a closer look at some of the the latest styles and colors as we transition into fall! You’ll find solids and punchy patterns in Passion Pink, Emerald Green and True Navy!
Here’s a little Lilly Pulitzer trivia for you… Did you know that before Lilly Pulitzer took the leap into the fashion word with her Palm Beach inspired prints that she ran a juice stand in the area?
