Lilly LeSportsac Collection, Serious Sales & Savings

Hello-Hello and greetings from The Great Midwest, where it is snowing. Heavily. You shall hear no complaints from the Prepatorium however, as we have had quite the easy winter, nothing like so many other parts of the country.

We have something to brighten the day for those fond of Lilly Pulitzer: the new collaboration with LeSportsac is now available for pre-ordering at some Lilly shops.  The Ocean Palm is one such shop; below we show the Everygirl Tote in Purrrfect Patch.

The other patterns in this collection are Hip Hop Hooray, with a sunny citrus feel, and She’s a Piston.

The Deluxe version of the Totes runs $98 with smaller sizes priced at $78 and $62.

In the Pink is also offering the new collection on their site; below we see the Mini Backpack ($62) and Lily Wallet (that really is the name).

The collection ships April 15 – 25 according to the Ocean Palm site.

We have a few Sales and Savings opportunities that are too good not to share, beginning with Polo Ralph Lauren.  The retailer is doing a ‘Last Chance’ promotion, offering an additional 20% off sale prices. This would make the Evelina Velvet Jacket a much more reasonable investment (now $375 from $1398) and the Ginny Cotton Sweater tough to turn down at about $24.

The always fabulous A. Tierney is also offering amazing incredible savings, including their Enamel Bangle Bracelets at only $5.

Also only $5, these darling Toddler Baseball Caps, today’s Pretty in Pink (and green).

We know everyone else is promoting special savings, and in most cases, rightly so, but we couldn’t resist sharing these offers, they seem very appealing. (Psst, if perusing the Lilly LeSportsac collection at either In the Pink or Ocean Palm you may want to browse their online clearance sections as well.)

We thought it appropriate to share the reaction to ‘snowpocalypse’ from one of our office mates here at Princess InterGalactic HQ.

With apologies to those following us on Twitter (for whom this may be repetitious), we couldn’t resist the latest from TillyVille.

With that we say g’bye until next time, with hopes you are warm and snuggly where you may be today.

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.

  • Eva by Eva Longoria Parker is scheduled for a spring launch
  • Danica Patrick will debut Danica Patrick for Her in mid-March
  • Beyonce’s perfume, Heat, goes on sale in February

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!
