Bits & Bytes

Hello-Hello, happy summer to each and every one of our treasured readers, we *do* appreciate you popping in for a visit.

We have quite a broad range of tidbits today, we begin with one of our favorite signs of summer, tennis championships at the All England Club. Below we see Rafa Nadal playing this morning (US time), the photo comes via the official Wimbledon Twitter feed:

Unfortunately Venus Williams lost in her first round, she continues to be impacted by Sjogren’s syndrome, the autoimmune disease keeping her from playing in peak form. The star is about to relaunch EleVen, the fashion line previously sold at Steve and Barry’s.  The new line is a ‘tennis lifestyle brand’.

VenusWilliams.com

Serena Williams won her first round match today, she moves on to the second round. Venus and Serena will play doubles together at the Olympics, they’ll both be in Nike dresses, as Nike is Serena’s apparel sponsor.

As usual, Polo Ralph Lauren continues to be official uniform supplier for ball boys and girls.

Wimbldeon

Wimbledon has a great page with info about the ball boys and girl, I didn’t realize that girls were not allowed until 1977, and that it was 1985 before they appeared on Centre Court.

Next, the Princess gets crafty. (Okay, not really, we just wanted to send everyone into a shock, heh-heh.) In reality we are talking about other ladies who have been crafty, very much so. Below we see a fabulous ladder in Lilly, created by the one and only Caitlin.

Caitlin took an ordinary stepstool and covered it in Lilly Pulitzer paper, making something darling from what is generally a very humdrum household item. She didn’t stop with one, below left we show a second stool covered in pretty paper.

Another crafty Lilly project? Katie from Sweet, Pink and Preppy shows us how she made coasters for her bridesmaids using old Lilly Agendas.

Katie used cut up pages and some Mod Podge to create these, here is the finished project.

To see more specifics, click here for Sweet Pink and Preppy’s blog post. (You can also say ‘congratulations,’ Katie was just married on the 16th, she is actually on her honeymoon!)

We wanted to share a few of these ideas because we are selling our few remaining 2011-2012 Lilly Agendas inventory for only $5. They really do offer a host of possibilities for crafting, it is great to send them to good homes where they will be used!

One other note, also with a promotional element, our friends at Frugal Finds are doing a giveaway for one of our Preppy Planet tech cases. Our new line offers personalized iPad, netbook, e-reader and Phone Cases with designs that include patterns like our Bespoke Suit collection, ideal for your MOTH (Man of the House)…

Target’s New Designer, That New Gossip Girl, Stella & Dot Adds Handbags

Hello-Hello, and happy top of a new week!

It has been a little busier than normal here at the Prepatorium, more on that later. But first, we have a quick look at the newest addition to the Gossip Girl cast. Although we don’t watch, a number of readers are fans, so we attempt to stay abreast of developments on the show, below we see Elizabeth Hurley shooting a scene with Chace Crawford last week.

Flynet Pictures via The Daily Mail

The show is in production for its next season, shooting on the UES. Ms. Hurley plays a character named Diana Payne,we also show Ed Westwick and Penn Badgley working on the set last week.

The new character is apparently that of a ‘media mogul,’ obviously a very attractive one.

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

Next, word from Women’s Wear Daily (subscription req’d.) that Le Boutique Targét is adding another designer line, this one from Gwen Stefani. The Harajuku Mini collection will debut in November, with pieces for “babies, children and tweens,” according to the trade publication.

Prices for the line will run $3.99 to $29.99. Sharon Edelson’s story points out that Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. collection is one of very few successful fashion endeavors being done by celebrities.

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

Next on the menu today, a look at a new accessories collection from a company called Sloane Ranger.  The line is just being launched, from its website:

“Inspired by the streets of Sloane Square, It was time to bring the Sloane’s effortless cool and confident styling across the pond.”

Many readers remember Princess Diana as the most well known individual associated with the moniker. Here are a few of the company’s iPad/Netbook cases, retailing at $20.

And here are some of the belts being offered, they run $18.

Thoughts on the new wares? Intrigued? Yawn? Cute?

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

Women’s Wear Daily also has word about Stella and Dot, the jewelry and limited accessories line sold through private trunk shows. The company is adding handbags to the merchandise its stylists will be offering, below we show one of the bags.

The initial handbag collection will consist of five bags, here is more from the WWD story:

“A clutch; a convertible, three-way style; a cross-body bag; a wristlet, and a key pouch will comprise the first collection. Prices start at $44 for the key pouch and go up to $258 for the convertible bag. “

Stella and Dot already offers jewelry totes and rolls.

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

Finally today, one of the reasons we say the weekend was a little chaotic.  Facebook fans have already heard that we hired a new shipping manager, seen on the job below overseeing Friday’s shipment of Lilly Pulitzer Agendas to Princess customers.

Courtesy Tilly T. Bulldog

It was good to have new personnel on the job, we had quite a few Lilly Pulitzer Agendas to get ready for today’s shipping run.

Above we show boxes being prepped for shipment, below, some of the boxes ready to go.

The Prepatorium

And more boxes filled with Agendas going out today.

The Prepatorium

Of course, with this many orders one counts on the shipping supervisor.  You’re wondering where that employee is aren’t you? So were we.

Caught Red-Pawed

We finally located her, tracked by the sound of her snores.

Honestly, you just can’t get good help these days.
