A Happy Hello to all, did everyone enjoy the amazing weather this weekend? Goodness, it was delightful, just bliss here at the Prepatorium.
We start with an enormous “Thank You” to a darling blogger, Spanish Preppy Girl for being so kind and generous in giving TP the Blog de Oro Award (Golden Blog).
Miss SPG es una chica muy bonita y muy simpático. Muchisimos gracias!
Today we have updates on stars from that fashionable faux-prep school television show, Gossip Girl. Actress Blake Lively has landed coveted spots on more magazine covers, including Allure’s May issue.
The magazine is available on newsstands tomorrow. Allure’s website features an extensive story on the photo shoot.
We admit to being a tad confused by comments attributed to Ms. Lively:
“Lively’s relationship with costar Penn Badgley has inspired some real-life gossip this past year, but she’s careful about keeping it as private as possible. “You see people who will open up their relationships, who are very affectionate on the red carpet or are doing a reality show with each other, and their relationship just seems to crumble,” says the actress. “So I decided to keep a vow of silence.”
The confusion relates to the actress keeping “a vow of silence” about her relationship, after seeing this interview in a German magazine …
… in which both stars appear to speak candidly on many topics, including the possibility of marriage in their future.
Do you have a little one needing new party frocks or other apparel? We have word of a remarkable savings opportunity at Strasburg, home to simply divine duds for children. The little pink dress is so darling we are making it one of today’s Pretty in Pink picks. The handwork on the embroidery looks exquisite.
How about the young gentleman of the house? Are there upcoming occasions on the social calendar requiring a more formal look?
The Boy’s Nautical Sailor One-piece is now offered at less than 50% of its original price, and in a broad selection of sizes up to 3 Years.
“Spring fashions include Lilly Pulitzer casual women’s clothing ranging from $29.99 to $69.99, and Palm Beach Golf casual men’s clothing ranging from $16.99 to $29.99.”
Can it be true? Gasp! Lilly at a discount chain? Fortunately for many bloggers, this has proved to be the case, as we have read many accounts of Lilly treasures located in local TJ Maxx stores. For those unable to shop at TJ Maxx, we offer a few suggestions, including the Lilly Pulitzer Ink Sandal with its cute little grosgrain ribbon bow.
We didn’t realize that 6pm also carries apparel, including Lilly Pulitzer Kids! Below, the Lilly Pulitzer Girls Haddie Skirt, also at 6pm.
It is now priced at $39 in reversible cotton canvas, quite the good buy. (From our limited experience, girls at this age have yet to be concerned about sporting previous seasons’ merchandise.)
We now claim executive privilege, offering still more Pretties in Pink, as we forgot all about these!
Or how about the Swiss Army Knife in a pretty pink Edelweiss print?
Insert screeching halt. Knives? At the TP Blog?
Yes. While the topic may appear unseemly (and we apologize to do those with easily offended sensibilities), the little pink knife actually once made the perfect gift for a doll moving into her first solo apartment. Perhaps not dinner-table conversation, but utilitarian. Indeed. One of these is also ideal for those more adventurous types heading out an a wilderness excursion.
On this shocking note we shall say G’Bye until next time!
