Fun Interrupted

Hello-Hello! We hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

Remember us nattering on Friday about all the fun activities we had planned for the day? We were going to scamper off to The Big City to do this….


And a little bit of this….

And then go see this….

But none of that happened because we spent the last three days doing this.

And we will be returning there shortly.  Frankly, it all rather has us feeling like this:

(We want to be utterly self-indulgent and let out one big waaaaaaahhhhhhhh! but proper decorum would forbid such conduct.)


In an effort to retain some sense of self-worth, to feel we have something of value to contribute (this is of value?!) , we have scraped together a few of the just-released photos from the upcoming Lilly Pulitzer and MAC cosmetics collaboration, MAC in Lillyland.

The group includes four Lip Gelees, all Limited Editions, all $14. From the left:

  • Lush and Bright (bright pink/yellow coral with pink pearlized pigments)
  • Preppy (blue pink with pink pearlized pigments)
  • Shift to Pink (light violet with silver pearlized pigments)
  • Resort Life (off white with pink pearlized pigments)

Four colors in MAC’s Cremeblend Blush formula round out the mix:


These will run $18.50; like all the other items (perhaps excluding the brushes), these are limited editions.


The Nail Lacquers: Hot n Steamy Pink is on the left, Coconut Ice Light on the right, both are MAC’s cream formula. Additionally they are limited editions and will run $12.

And there are two Technakohl Liners designated as part of the Collection, in Graph Black and Purple Rose, but these are permanent items for the MAC line and currently available for sale. Pop over and visit the good folks at both Temptalia and Butterfly Diary for more on the Collection.

Many thanks to everyone for all of your kind emails, Tweets, and messages – we really appreciate the way they make us feel much more like this:

We hope things return to a more normal routine tomorrow. Until then, smiles to everyone!

Lilly is Pink & Green & Golden (Anyone Looking for A Limited-Edition Lilly Pulitzer Jeep Wrangler?)

Happy-Happy and Hubba-Hubba! Did everyone enjoy their weekend? We hope so.

Lilly Pulitzer James Bradbeer Jr.

Of course, the happiest of all greetings go out to our Lilly Pulitzer, recently hospitalized for almost a week, but bound and determined she would be at The Breakers (Palm Beach) last Friday for the big bash honoring Lilly Pulitzer’s 50th Anniversary. And she made it, as seen in the photo above, looking just fabulous! (Pix compliments of the good folks at the Palm Beach Daily News.) Lilly is also seen in the photo just below, with company co-owner and President James Bradbeer.

There are big plans for the brand we all love, and while The Breakers party was used to thank the company’s bigger customers, it was also clearly the launch pad for some of the more exciting plans to recognize the ‘Jublilee Celebration.’ The evening was a vision in pink and green, truly it was. Just look at guests dancing the night away; you could spot those dresses anywhere!

As a rule, pianos are for playing music, or practicing scales, oui? However, at times they may be used to meet other needs, perhaps serving a more decorative purpose. In fact, The Princess has long thought a pink and green piano would be a marvelous addition to the Prepatorium, and now look…there is going to be just such an instrument! Steinway and Sons will be making the official Lilly Pulitzer 50th Steinway piano you are gazing at in the photos below. Isn’t it divine?

And how about a pink and green car or SUV? Isn’t this what Daddy really meant to give you as a graduation present instead of that dreary Honda? Of course it is. 70 of these limited-edition Lilly Pulitzer Jeep Wranglers have already been pre-ordered; at about $25,000 each they seem like a great deal to us! The vehicle (shown in the photo below) is hypothetically available through Lilly Signature store owners we believe, and available this Fall.

But here is the one that is TP’s favorite: a Lilly Monopoly game! How cool is that? The word is that Hasbro will introduce a Palm Beach version of its Monopoly game called “Lilly-opoly.” (Why do we see zillions of these wrapped and parked under a few Christmas trees this holiday season?)

There are loads more ways the company plans to celebrate (perhaps better spelled “sell-ebrate”) the anniversary, but we’re just out of time. We’ll get more of the information to you in the next few days.

Also in Lilly news…the new Madison Avenue store has opened! And only in New York at a party celebrating such an occasion would you have so many LBDs contrasting with the famous Lilly prints! Just below you’ll note the stunning new “Gillian” pink sheath worn by Gillian Miniter. The name is no accident – this new design from Lilly is actually named for Ms. Miniter, a philanthropist and socialite.

Now, rumor has it TP asked Mr. Princess to approach the man in the turquoise paisley jacket and attempt to purchase it on the spot so that she might wear it. Furthermore, it is said that if the response to that request was negative, she wanted Mr. P to then physically accost him and rip the jacket from his very body! (L to R: Rick Sabag, Steven Stolman, Frank Rico, and Victor Basile) Of course, The Princess denies *all* of this, calls it poppycock, and suggests people get in touch with her press person or publicist if they have any more questions. Honestly. (BTW, does anyone know the name of that particular print seen in the turquoise jacket?)
