Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2010 Stationery and Gift Collection, Part 2

Hello-Hello, and welcome back from the long weekend. Hopefully no one has melted yet, although that seems to be a peril again today.

We have our second post on the Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2010 Stationery and Gift Collection. (If you missed Part One, click here.)  The Consort The IT staff has been typing their little fingers to the bone, putting new goodies up on the site for pre-ordering, and we begin with a splendid item debuting with this group, the Lilly Umbrellas!

Lilly Pulitzer Umbrellas

We are now taking pre-orders on the Umbrellas ($28.50), they come in the Surf’s Blue Checking In and White Zin patterns. This Fall’s Collection brings new patterns for those wildly popular Lilly Market Bags.

PreppyPrincess.com

The new additions to the group are Just Add Lemon and How About Them Apples. The new designs are available for pre-orders, of course our Creme Fraiche and Queen of Green bags ship immediately. (All are $10.)

One of our fave items has to be the Lilly Water Bottles for Adults and Minnies ($14.50); below we show the Childrens’ Bottles in Desert Tort and Lator Gator.

PreppyPrincess.com

They go nicely with the Melamine Place Settings and Placemats. (These latter two items are from the spring line so they are available now, the water bottles are pre-order only.)

If seeking something not quite as involved as the bottle, how about a Lilly Pulitzer Koozie?

PreppyPrincess.com

The Koozies ($4.95) are available for pre-ordering in Frisky Business, Checking In and Patch Day.

The Magnetic Boards ($18.50) have new patterns too: Checking In, Koi, and White Zin.

PreppyPrincess.com

We are predicting these will be one of the hottest new gift items:

The Lilly Dress Magnets come five to a set and at only $12.50 they make a fab stocking-stuffer.

Two popular gift-giving items also come in the new patterns; the Lilly Watch Sets ($19.50) will be available for pre-orders this afternoon, Checking In and Patch Day are the new patterns in these.  Another high-volume item, is also getting additions in the new themes, the Lilly Ink Pen collection ($19.50).

One of the other items ideal as a present is the iPhone cover ($19.50); below we show it in Coral Me Crazy, along with one of the new watches in that pattern.

PreppyPrincess.com

For those who may have missed yesterday’s post, we shared the new Agenda Books in both the Large Size

PreppyPrincess.com

…and the Pocket Agenda size. These are available for immediate ordering; we expect to start shipping them at the end of the week.

Perhaps the most-anticipated items are from the new Personalized Home Collection.

PreppyPrincess.com

The new recipe boxes, ice buckets, coasters and serving trays (two sizes!) are going to be outstanding additions to the line. We hope to have the information and pricing on this group next week, we’ll let you know when we do.

Here are the other particulars on the Lilly Fall Stationery Collection:

  • As mentioned above, the Agendas will ship approximately July 10 or 11
  • We are now taking pre-orders for the other goodies in the fall line; we expect to ship pre-ordered merchandise in mid-August
  • As always, we gift wrap at no charge and are happy to include a gift card with your order, so do let us know if it is a special present for someone

Everything looks so fun, we can’t wait to have it all in-house!

The Lilly Pulitzer Spring/Summer 2010 Stationery & Gift Collection

Hello-Hello and Happy Tuesday!

We are back from a wonderful trip to the market where we saw all manner of new  goodies. (We are very excited by some of the new lines we shall soon be be adding to the Princess – can you say nautical!)

But first we focus on the new additions to our Lilly Pulitzer Stationery and Gift line, as they are just too fun. Since we first shared sneak peeks of a few items via Facebook or Twitter the mighty IT department here at Princess Intergalactic HQ  (umm…. that would be the Consort) has been typing and uploading photos into the wee hours.  A quick note on the Spring/Summer line: the items are up on the site and now available for pre-ordering only, we anticipate shipping in mid to late February.

We begin with the incredibly popular Thermal Travel Mugs; some readers may recall that the fall/winter mugs sold out within weeks.

PreppyPrincess.com

As seen in the photo above, the new crop of mugs are offered in Queen of Green, Crabtastic, Hanging Around and Later Gator.

Next, the fabulous new Ink Pens.

PreppyPrincess.com

The Pens come in the Desert Tort, Crabtastic, Hanging Around, and Patchtastic patterns. Many readers are familiar with the Lilly pom-poms, many have used them for more than just party decor, decorating dorm rooms, bedrooms and more. Now there are Lilly Paper Lanterns providing a vivid, vibrant splash of color wherever you choose!

PreppyPrincess.com

Next, the new Lilly Picture Frames.

PreppyPrincess.com

We are already overly attached to some of the new patterns, like Silver Dollars and Crabtastic (in both pink and blue colorways).

Also new to the line, Melamine Dishes.

PreppyPrincess.com

These come as beautifully pre-packaged Place Settings with a plate, bowl and matching knife/fork….

PreppyPrincess.com

…. or they may be purchased individually. (Because we have already fielded an inquiry on the topic, we want to let you know that if seeking the knife and fork, the only way to acquire them is with the gift sets.)

PreppyPrincess.com

Also new in tabletop, the Lilly Placemats coordinate perfectly with the melamine dishes, offered in both Later Gator and Desert Tort in a water-resistant, durable material.  At only $5.50, they make a new look for your table a reasonable undertaking.

PreppyPrincess.com

Recognizing some fight this odd, we’re going to share it anyway: we believe that Silly Tilly would like (nay, requires!) one of these under her dishes to enhance her drinking and dining experiences. Now we ask, is that wrong?

We move on to the always-popular Latte Da! mugs, now available in three of the new patterns: Desert Tort, Crabtastic, and Bamboo Patch.  Of course, most of the Classic patterns are still available as well.

PreppyPrincess.com

Below we have a better look at Bamboo Patch and Crabtastic (blue).

Brand new and already a crowd-pleaser: Lilly’s new Watch Sets!

PreppyPrincess.com

Each set includes two patterned bands and they are perfectly packaged for gifting.

PreppyPrincess.com

Designed to fit all ages, the wristwatches come in Later Gator, Desert Tort or Patchtastic and run $19.50. Perhaps the very thing you need for one of the young graduates on your list this spring, or a special member of the bridal party? (Remember, we provide gift wrap at no additional charge; if you just alert us to your needs, we can use Lilly paper or come up with something to fit almost any theme or personality. Just because we like to have fun with tape. Heh-heh-heh.)

Also a great gift any time of the year, the new Lilly Luggage Tags, especially at just $5.50.

PreppyPrincess.com

If thinking about sprucing up the office, the new File Folders provide a bright splash of color; below we show the Desert Tort and Crabtastic folders, Patchtastic is not shown.

The new patterns are also seen on loads of other products, like the Mini Notebooks, the Sticky Notes with Lilly Pads, and the Dry Erase Boards, to name just a few of the fun items sporting the new patterns.

We’re also tickled to be offering items tied into the Lilly Loves Green campaign, like these new Market Bags in Creme Fraiche and Queen of Green.

PreppyPrincess.com

At 17″ x 14″ (and almost 8″ deep!) and only $10 they make a trip to the farmer’s market or grocery not fun, and a little more eco-friendly, eliminating the need for paper or plastic bags.

Now, there are loads of goodies not included in our little post, so be sure to pop over and have a peek if/when the spirit moves you.

Thank you for indulging us while we spout about our excitement over the new Lilly treasures; tomorrow we shall return with one of our more standard posts, and later in the week we will share some of the new and faboo Jonathan Adler Nifty Gifties!

Sneak Peek: Lilly Pulitzer Watches & Market Bags

Hello-Hello and Happy New Year’s Eve!

We will be brief today as we effort a little rest and relaxation, but we do have to share a quick look at some new goodies headed our way, they are bright and fun, the perfect antidote to gray and gloomy skies outside.

Our new Lilly Pulitzer Market Bags are from the Spring/Summer 2010 Stationery and Gift line, due here in early February.

Lilly Pulitzer Creme Fraiche and Queen of Green market bags

PreppyPrincess.com

Healthy in size (14″ wide x 17″ tall and almost 8″ wide), the totes are ideal for trips to the market; you can see the ‘Lilly Loves Green’ slogan on the Crème Fraîche bag in front, Queen of Green also shares this theme.  To say we are excited about the bags would be an understatement, they fit perfectly in our Eco-Prep category. (For more on Lilly Loves Green, click here or here.)

Also headed this way, the new Lilly Pulitzer Watch Sets:

Lilly Pulitzer Watches

PreppyPrincess.com

The wristwatches will come in three patterns: Later Gator, Desert Tort and the very popular Patchtastic.

PreppyPrincess.com

Some readers may recognize Later Gator from one of this year’s Lilly bracelets.

Designed for all ages, the Watch Sets come with two bands so you can swap out looks. And as we hopefully show in the first photo, they are are beautifully packaged and ready for gifting.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Looking at spring goodies helps us believe spring is just around the corner. Or, as the delightful Summer is a Verb puts it, we’re almost “ready to begin the count down til summer on January 4th”.

We can’t look ahead without looking back, and as 2009 comes to a close it is another cold and damp day outside, but we are warm and snuggly inside, wrapped in gratitude as the year winds down. We have been more than blessed this year, surrounded by incredible family and friends, fabulous customers and stellar vendors. (You know who you are!)

Many of our friends IRL and online have not been as fortunate, encountering challenges and struggles that would best lesser people. They continue to astonish and inspire us us with their capacity to overcome each and every stumbling block with nary a whine nor a whimper.  We watch, and listen, and try to learn from their examples.

With that, we offer an inadequate ‘thank you’ to those who share their lives with us, and send wishes to all for a safe, happy, healthy and bountiful 2010!
