Lilly Pulitzer for LeSportSac Early Look, Lacoste Updates

Hello-Hello!

The insanity seems to be ebbing here at Princess InterPlanetary HQ, phew! Now we move on to one of our favorite wintertime sports: extreme baking. (The Consort will politely confirm this is no exaggeration. Simply step away from the computer and say a prayer of gratitude you aren’t a recipient of one of our cookie plates.)

But before that gets underway, a few morsels of info and lots of pictures to kick-start things before our Christmas break.  We begin with an early look at the Lilly Pulitzer for LeSportsac collection, compliments of the folks at M.I.S.S. & JuxtaPoz.

As previous posts described, the Collection pops with bright colors and the inimitable Lilly style.

Some readers may recall this line is part of the Lilly Loves Green initiative; some proceeds will go to the World Wildlife Federation.

Our favorite pattern is probably going to be the green and white Hip Hop Hooray (L), although we like the blue and coral in Purrr-fect Patch as well.

Purrr-fect Patch is slated to hit LeSportsac and Lilly stores in March, with She’s A Piston (shown below) scheduled for an April launch. This design is so fun we’re making it today’s Pretty in Pink.

This is just one of the Lilly collaborations headed our way next year, the M.A.C. in Lillyland cosmetics are also on the way, scheduled to debut January 7.  The Cut blog offers the following on this line:

“But M.A.C. added a much-needed dose of coolness to the pink-and-green paisley label; the products are bright, fun, and of course, colorful (it is M.A.C. after all).”

Not to be forgotten, the spring collection of Lilly stationery and gifts are being readied – can you say plates and market totes?! (If you aren’t on the Lilly Stationery & Gifts mailing list, just click here to sign up for the latest on new offerings and special deals from the Princess.)

Also donating funds to a good cause, Lacoste.

The company plans to give $500,000 to help preserve the Gange gharial crocodile; above, Michael Lacoste is seen holding one of these.  As this story in WWD explains, the Gange gharial is known for “…its long, slender mouth with fully visible teeth.” Perfect for this brand!

Women’s Wear Daily also reported this week that Lacoste plans to expand its shoe offerings for childrens and juniors, including infants; good news, unless perhaps one is a parent responsible for putting said footwear on those little feet.

We also have word of several more celebrity perfumes in the works. Because there are not enough on the market.

  • Danica Patrick will debut Danica Patrick for Her in mid-March

Holiday activities around the world are always fun to see, especially when they involve royalty. (The real kind.)  Below, Princess Caroline of Hanover and her daughter, Princess Alexandra, head to the annual Christmas tree lighting in Monaco.

Gifts are handed out to Monegasque children at the ceremony. The next photo features Princess Caroline of Hanover Prince Albert II, and Princess Stephanie.

We leave you a look at Montauk Light, also dressed to celebrate the season.

We hope everyone stays warm and safe, wreathed in smiles. (Silly Princess.)

EDITOR’S NOTE: In case you miss it, Kim at M.I.S.S. was good enough to leave a comment indicating Hip Hop Hooray  is not being produced. So much for our favorite pattern! And our thanks to Kim for the info!

    Hi,
    since you used our original photos we would appreciate an actual link back to our Lily Pulitzer for Lesportsac post http://www.missomnimedia.com/2009/12/lilly-pulitzer-for-lesportsac-spring-2010/. From the info I received from LeSportsac, the Hip Hop Hooray Print is not being produced. I did not see it on the production calendar.

    Two comments, one complimentary and one irresistably mean:
    1. I need another tote bag like I need a hole in the head, but those sportsacs are adorable!
    2. Are all those little kids with the Royal Family Stephanie’s illegitimate children ?

  3. Love Caroline dress!!! By the way, I’m so easy when it coms to gifts my dear, you can send any one of the Pulitzer Sacs! no worries, Merry Christmas!

  4. I think Lilly Pulitzer should come out with a permanent makeup collection of it’s own!! If you look at the catalog, Lilly has some pretty established and fun makeup looks (and hair styles!) such as coral lips, pretty blush, wavy hair etc. Lilly Pulitzer should offer some sweepstakes where the prize would be to have your makeup and hair done like their models and have your own photo shoot!
    Agree?
    Lilly please make me look like your model!!
    Merry Christmas!

  5. Ooh I love the patch print!! I am in need of a new makeup bag… : ) Happy Holidays!

  6. Well, I want some of that fabulous Preppy baking!

  7. The Lilly collection is, not surprisingly, super cute! And it’s so nice to see Princess Caroline happy and healthy…. she is my favorite royalty. xoxox

  8. Merry Merry and hope you’re safe and snug from this icky storm!

    The Princesses are so pretty. Love!

    But I am going to go against the grain and say that I am not sure I am thrilled with the Lilly marriage to LeSportSac. I am just not crazy about LSS bags. But that’s just me I guess. I am however, excited to see the Mac Lilly line.

  10. I’m up early checking out the after Christmas sales. I enjoyed the piece here about the Monaco royal family. You and I grew up always hearing about them in the news. We followed them through their “growing pains”. And I happy for them that it seems after all these years they’ve got families of their own and seem content in life.
