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!

About That New Lilly Logo, and Those 12″ Heels

Hello and greetings from the Prepatorium, what a busy day it has become!

We start with a look at a logo Lilly Pulitzer fans are likely to become accustomed to:

13945_172737079360_20717904360_2492740_2591376_n

The logo is part of the company’s ‘Lilly Loves Green’ initiative; we chatted about the campaign in this postWWD explains more in this story by Julie Naughton (subscription req’d.):

“As part of the initiative, each of the seasonal collections — beginning with resort 2009 and ending with fall 2010 — will focus on a different environmental theme, which ties into the bigger Lilly Loves Green picture. Resort 2009 is dubbed “Escape to the Water’s Edge” and comprises ocean-inspired designs…”

Which brings us to the Coral Me Crazy necklace seen below:

The necklace debuts tomorrow night at the Lilly Mother Ship; it is also the official launch of this year’s Resort collection.  The necklace will retail for $48, with 10% of proceeds benefiting coral conservation efforts at Sea Web.

Some readers may have received an invite to the bash:

UnknownIn reality, invites aren’t required for tomorrow evening’s festivities, the event is open to the public. If you are in the city, pop in and sip on a Pink Lilly!

A few lucky readers have already had a peek at the Resort line. (Did we say Muffy?) Below left, the Cameron pant (in the Coral Me Crazy print) and on the right, the Bermuda Caravan Sewn Patch short, both from the Resort line:

Also from the Resort collection, the Olie Dress70708_multiribbonsofflowersembroidery_large (L) and the Gia Print Pant (R).

In our next item, a quick glance at the upcoming Penney’s line by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Olsenboye. (Because there are not enough celebrity clothing, accessories and perfume lines.)

obLogo_txtThe new collection is targeted to teens, coming only in Junior sizes.

The entire group launches in February, but 50 select Penney’s will have the line in-store for a limited period of time beginning November 6.

We really don’t know what a parent of teenage girls must go through with all of the limited edition and special collections constantly being created and promoted.  How does one handle a style- and peer-conscious young lady amidst such intense marketing campaigns?

To be fair, the Olsens are better equipped than almost all the other celebrities undertaking this type of challenge. We are intrigued to see how this one plays out.

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

Finally, a word about what we won’t be wearing for New Year’s Eve.

Courtesy ThakoonThe Thakoon Mirror heels are a tad garish for us. And come next Spring, it is unlikely we’ll be skipping about the Prepatorium in the Versace polka-dots:

Or any of these from Christian Siriano, coming next Spring to a Payless near you:

Despite seeing all of these, we still had to grin at this story on the Vogue UK site:

McQueen4_blog_v_26oct09_mag_b

Evidently the understanding at the office was that the Alexander McQueen shoes ‘only’ had a 10-inch heel. When discussion arose about the veracity of such a claim, it was time for the tape:

McQueen2_blog_v_26oct09_mag_b

As far as how they look on actual feet?

McQueen3_blog_v_26oct09_mag_b

There you have it.

 

EDITOR’S NOTE: This post has been amended to correct an egregious error on our part, we originally referred to the shoes as being from Alexander Wang, when anyone with an ounce of sense knows they are the other Alexander, as in McQueen. We thank the always fabulous Wendy Brandes for her kind correction, and apologize for the error.
