More Lilly Pulitzer Sneak Peek & “When Logos Attack”

Hello-Hello everyone, happy Thursday!

We are ever-so-pleased to finally be composing our little post today, because it means that electrical service has been restored to the Prepatorium. Honestly, this is the sort of thing that causes us to question the wisdom of that moat around the Palace, you all know the perils of raising the drawbridge when lacking electrical power, the minions are just so cranky on this issue.

And frankly, the timing is classic, as we had such grand Bloggage plans today, coordinated in advance with Miss Misadventures Herself (aka Misadventures of a Newlywed) as we were covering the same topic, and we were both going to send our readers to each other’s site to “see more pictures.” Pictures of what, you ask?

Why, it’s time to share more from this fall’s new (and exceptionally fabulous) Lilly Pulitzer Stationery and Gifts Collection, arriving here at the Princess within weeks!

We start with the new Lilly Holiday Ornament Sets.

These are offered in our favorite color combo, natch, and will run $17.50 for a set of three.

We have moved up the start of pre-ordering, it begins Monday, the 6th!

Next on our hit parade, the Lilly Highlighters Set, an ideal gift for any time of the year, definitely perfect as a stocking stuffer.

Also new on the horizon, the Lilly Cocktail Shakers, more-than-fun IOHO, sure to make any beverage tastier.

Shaken Up and Juice Bar, left to right respectively, are the patterns for the shakers, retailing at $39.50.  And Juice Bar will match all of the other Lilly Juice Bar and Juice Stand tableware for an even more stylish table.

Also on the beverage front, new Thermal Travel Mugs.

Does anyone else recognize a familiar piece of clothing or two…? These look like loads of fun for your Tiny Prep.

We cannot believe how quickly our IT Department (cough-cough, IT Dept = The Consort) has created the new web pages for everyone to use to pre-order, he is just Mr. Speedy!

This next item is so incredibly fabulous we absolutely had to include it today, despite it making the post even pokier than usual.

It’s the collaboration between Lacoste and Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana, creating polo shirts for the preppy retailer’s 4th Holiday Collector’s Series.

How remarkable are these?

There will be 20,000 of the limited edition polos available, and while much-too-cool for yours truly, we adore their spirit.

There will also be a “Super-Limited Edition” (ahem) of the shirt seen below, created entirely from the little Lacoste Alligator logos.

There are to be only 12 men’s and 12 women’s in this version; here is a closer look, via Yatzer.

If wondering about our Logophobia, we can only say “non, non, non, ce n’est pas un problème,” for these appear to be done with an artistic eye, yes, but an outlook accompanied by a touch of whimsy.  They do not appear to take themselves too seriously. Very, very witty.

Now, if seeking furniture, the brothers are also noted for their Alligator Chair.

Indeed.

Grins and giggles until next time!

An Award for Lilly & Preppy Sales Abound

Hello-Hello! Might we inject a personal note here and say we are ever-so-happy to be back home at the Prepatorium. New York is always fun, but being home at the Palace brings a smile to TP’s face.

Our trip to the Stationery Show was fun and frenzied, with just enough social activities thrown in to keep us re-applying the lip gloss.  We saw loads of new goodies we think you will love, including some divine designs for the Fall and holiday seasons that we shall be adding to our Lilly Pulitzer Stationery and Gifts Collection.

On the agenda? Fireplace matches (you know, the really long ones the houseman uses), cookie cutters, and…. (insert dramatic music here), 2010 Calendars! There will be both desk-top and wall calenders that you are simply going to adore. Many readers will remember we offered pre-ordering of the Lilly Stationery merchandise prior to this spring’s launch; we will provide that same opportunity with these new treasures.  Just sign up for our Lilly Mailing List at PreppyPrincess.com.

As we are speaking of Lilly Pulitzer, fans will be pleased to learn she received the prestigious Spirit of a Woman Award from the American Apparel and Footwear Association.  The award presentation was last week in New York, and Isaac Mizrahi did the honors, wearing pink loafers in honor of the designer:

It is clear Mr. Mizrahi thinks highly of Lilly’s impact on American style:

“I think that Lilly Pulitzer is the most important American designer ever. Her work has influenced American designers and international designers. If you are wearing a Lilly Pulitzer dress, they can tell. Whether it’s in Palm Beach or in Milan, in New York or in Russia, it doesn’t matter where you are wearing that dress. They know, it’s Lilly Pulitzer.”

Unfortunately Lilly was not able to attend; the award was accepted on her behalf by Lilly Grand Pooh-Bah Scott Beaumont, accompanied by another Lilly exec, James Bradbeer Jr.

BTW, the Lilly Brooke Shields Tunic and Swimsuit were featured on the Today Show yesterday in a segment about beachwear and swimsuits.

And in a final note, we have added the Lilly Pulitzer Dry Erase Boards to the store, an outstanding addition to your palace, equally wonderful as a gift!

The Boards are available in Animal Crackers, Cabanarama, Juice Bar and Bees Knees Patch.

It will come as no surprise that just about every retailer is having a sale or discount promotion of some sort as we approach the holiday weekend. Burberry tops today’s list of just such establishments.

There is a substantial amount of merchandise available in the ‘Sale’ category online, no surprise in light of the company’s continued underperformance.

Invite-only shopping site Rue La La has Vineyard Vines on sale through tomorrow.

They also have a Kate Spade sale underway.

Both sales end tomorrow (Thursday, 5.21.09) at 11am; if you need an invite to ‘join’ the site, just email the Princess: thePreppyPrincess@mac.com.

J. Crew is promoting a sale at their Factory Stores, running today through Memorial Day.

We predict Crew will have a “Take an additional 20% off” discount offering within the next week to 10 days.  We’ll share the Silk-Linen Sweater as today’s Pretty in Pink:

The sweater originally retailed at $59.50; it is now selling at $49.50 or $39.99, depending upon the color.

The Nordstrom Designer Sale is underway as part of their storewide Half-Yearly Sale event.

And Barney’s Private Sale continues.

We want to share a few quick updates to previous posts:

  • The Gossip Girl spinoff on the CW is officially a non-starter. Many thanks to those who let us know it was not happening.
  • Something definitely supposed to happen, Gossip Guy Chace Crawford has been named to star in the remake of “Footloose,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

We’ll have more on the Stationery Show in our next post. Until then – smiles!
