Sneak Peek at 3 New Lilly Pulitzer Lines


We have yet another busy day upon us, it is astonishing how quickly fall social obligations are creeping up! Therefore we shall be brief as we are overbooked again.

We begin with big news from Planet Lilly: there are several new lines on the way!

For those of us who have missed the beautiful, bright home goods collection, we can rest easy. That group returns this February in partnership with one of TP’s favorites, Garnet Hill.

Today’s WWD has an excellent description of the group:

“Highlights for bedding include The Life of the Party, inspired by a cocktail dress; Happy and Bright, which includes playful florals; Retro to Bohemian, which includes cool blues, lush greens, tropical foliage and lemons, and Follow the Sun! The Resort–Chic Lilly Pulitzer Bath, which includes towels and bath rugs.”

This one has TP very excited.


Also on the way, a limited edition cosmetics line with M.A.C., another brand we are fond of here at the Prepatorium.

There will be 19 products in the MAC line, all of them available in January. The name for the collection? MAC in Lillyland, of course. Women’s Wear Daily has the scoop on some of the products we’ll see:

  • two makeup brushes, an eyeshader for $24.50 and an angled contour brush, $32;
  • two Technakohl liners, each $14.50
  • four Cremeblend blushes, each $18.50
  • three Paint Pots, each $16.50
  • two nail lacquers, each $12

Lilly nail polish – how amazing is that?! There will also be two special Lilly compacts, sure to be collector’s items.


Another new initiative for the company is the year-long Lilly Goes Green campaign, with additional focus on working with “eco-conscious factories and using organic materials and green processes”.

The new Originals collection is a part of this emphasis. Originals will debut with this year’s Resort group, planned as a permanent addition, offering Lilly Pulitzer items that may not fit well within a specific season’s thematic look. WWD has more:

“The collections, which will change each season, will include vintage-inspired pieces and designs that harken back to the early days of the brand…”

The line will be showcased with special store events during America Recycles Week, running from November 9 through November 15.

Originals has been endorsed by Cotton Inc. as being eco-friendly and carries hangtags and labels made entirely from recycled materials.”

Partnerships with non-profit groups will continue; there are plans for donations tied into special promotional events and product sales.  For example, Lilly will plant a tree for every polo sold next January and February through its alliance with American Forests.

This year’s Resort group is titled Escape to the Water’s Edge, with an ocean-inspired theme, visible in its colors and names, like these Coral Me Crazy flats:


A special Coral Me Crazy necklace selling for $48 will benefit coral conservation efforts at Sea Web.

We can also share the primary themes for next year’s collections:

  • Spring 2010: Protective Prints
  • Summer 2010: Buy Local (including a focus on a certain Washington D.C. resident’s back yard garden! Can you guess who?)
  • Fall 2010: “spas, yogawear, and resort getaway chic apparel”

Below, we show next spring’s Panda Shift Dress from the Originals line, done in recognition of the company’s relationship with the World Wildlife Fund.

We don’t know about you, but these all hold major possibilities for TP.

With that, G’bye until next time!

NOTE: Please accept our apology for not fitting the Burberry show from London Fashion Week into today’s post. Tomorrow, promise-promise-promise.

    Glad you enjoyed the article. I had a blast writing it (especially as it involved a trip to Lilly HQ in King of Prussia)…and truly, these things are TDF.

    And to answer Spotty Prep’s query — while the eyeshadows (and the rest of the collection) appear quite bright in the packaging, they do go on fairly sheer.

    Looking forward to seeing the Garnet Hill collection.

    The jury’s still out on the MAC Collection – it could be really cute or really hideous.

    Still not a fan of the LP shoes since I’ve had bad experiences with the quality recently but I do like the coral motif.

  17. This post kills me in a really good way. HAHAHA! I can’t STAND the excitement! This is too much!!!!! Check out the ode to PP at the Lilly Lovers blog!!!!

  18. I also hate social obligations…and I have to do more often than I would like to…it is so boring…
    About fashion, I do love those flats and all!
    You have a great taste girl!

    Many kisses and wishes of a better time,
