Poolside with Lilly

 

Saturday, June 21 is "National Wear Your Lilly Day"!! So what better way to celebrate than with a Lilly Pulitzer Poolside Chic photo shoot?! 

    

Lilly Pulitzer has been defining the characteristics of a Southern Belle since '59:  a tad tongue-in-cheek, a little bit sassy, and always full of class. Lilly settled in Palm Beach,Florida shortly after their marriage. Her husband owned several Florida orange citrus groves, and with produce from the groves Lilly opened a juice stand. In the course of working at the juice stand, she found that squeezing juice made a mess of her clothes. Seeking to camouflage the juice stains, she designed a sleeveless shift dress made of bright, colorful printed cotton. She found that customers loved her dress, so she produced more in order to sell them at her juice stand. Eventually, she was selling more dresses than juice, and decided to focus on designing and selling what had become known as her "Lillys". Today, we still enjoy all of Lilly Pulitzer's fun prints, fabrics, and designs that all started in a small Palm Beach juice stand!!
