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’.


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.


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)…

Lilly Pulitzer Home for Fall 2010, & Next Release of Lilly Stationery & Gifts

Hello-Hello, what an incredibly busy day we are experiencing here in the corner condo at Princess InterGalactic HQ! The barely controlled chaos goings-on force us to do a *very* brief post, with apologies for our dereliction in duty and a promise to do better tomorrow.

We begin with a quick look at some of the fall styles for the Lilly Pulitzer Home Collection, via the bright minds at Atlanta Home.

The Lilly Pulitzer for Garnet Hill Collection only launched this spring, marking the company’s return to the category after several years.  Below, another ensemble from the fall line.

The print above looks outstanding, the blue and white lattice or trellis print seen below is also promising.  And while fond of an all-white look with an accent color or two, the shower curtain seen below right didn’t exactly make our heart go pitter-patter. Hhhhmmm.

The new styles début August 8 at Garnet Hill. Our thanks to Atlanta Homes magazine for sharing the images! To read their entire post, click here.  Below we see two styles from this current collection, the Lily of the Valley bedding (L) and the Foxgloves Shower Curtain on the right.

We do enjoy our pink and green!


We are even more excited about new goodies due for our fall group of Lilly Pulitzer Stationery and Gifts!

Yes, those are Lilly umbrellas up above, slated for a late summer launch. The snappy ‘action shot’ was taken by the good folks at Whitney English during one of this week’s downpours at the Stationery Show.  You can also see the Jonathan Adler designs above, we are sure to add these to our collection of Adler designs.

Also coming your way with the fall line of Lilly:

  • Magnet Sets, shaped like shift dresses
  • Laptop Sleeves
  • Cell Phone/iPhone Covers
  • Agenda Books, done in an academic-year format, Aug. 2010 through December 2011; these will be in the Regular and Pocket Agenda sizes (just like this year)

And we are excited to be introducing the new line of Lilly Pulitzer Personalized Home Accessories that will include:

  • 2 sizes of Acrylic Serving Trays

There are more goodies; as always, we’ll be taking pre-orders when we get closer to the actual roll-out of these items.  The best way to stay up to speed is with our Lilly Pulitzer mailing list, sign up on our front page. (You may need to scroll down, the info is on the lower right hand side of the home page.)

We couldn’t be more tickled about the new merchandise, many of these items are not only delightful, they will solve innumerable gift-giving dilemmas!


We close with today’s Pretty in Pink, the Barbie Suite at the Plaza Athénée.
