Lacoste Limited Editions, Forever 21 Does Plus-Size

Hello-Hello everyone, we hope your day is sun-splashed and bright, as ours is turning out to be!

We will blast our way through a number of headlines today without going into too much detail, there is simply so much going on!

Most importantly, we used Random.org to select a winner of our Lilly Pulitzer Giveaway:

Congratulations to Tales of a Golf Gal at Country Club Livin’! Please send us your information so we may get your Lilly Mouse Pad and Lilly coffee mug on their way to you! Whoo-hoo!

And as we are speaking of giveaways, over at Misadventures Manor…

… the always-fabulous Mrs. Newlywed is doing a Giveaway of her own, debuting some of our new classic totes!

We hope the photos are bright enough to show these off, as they are just wonderful! The totes are good sized, made with heavy-duty cotton canvas that can take a beating, but they’re also fashionable, with their grosgrain ribbon trim. The new line will come with ribbon in iconic preppy images…

As well as images that…ummmm, well….let’s just say ribbon that inspired a healthy debate here at the Prepatarium!

It’s simply this: we don’t really consider certain images to be ‘classics.’ It’s not so much the pretty little ballerinas, but the pirate ribbon that generated the “discussion.” (Ahem.) But we are guessing many of our kind readers have children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, etc., who simply adore the skull and crossbones imagery…perhaps? Perhaps yes?  So, the new totes shall be offered in all of our favorite ribbons as well as some designs considered to be more ‘contemporary.’

Best of all, the pricepoint on these is more than fiscally-friendly: at $35 they are a whale of a deal! (Yes, tedious pun intended.) We are mortified to admit these are not yet available at the Preppy Princess, we promise to have them online early next week.

Regular readers know we adore the clean lines and understated elegance one finds in apparel and swimsuits by Shoshanna. If you are going to be anywhere near the city next week, the designer will be showing her latest looks at the Saks mother ship (5th Ave.) next Thursday, the 12th, from 4-7pm.

Here is just one of the new pieces from the collection:

Lacoste is doing another limited edition collection, this one featuring nine different shoes, all  celebrating the myths surrounding crocodiles.

The blue shoe is meant to be representative of West Africa, the green Tiller model relates to Egypt and the brown commemorates crocodiles in Polynesia.

Should you find these appealing, they will be available in April.

Recognizing our remarkably self-indulgent stick-in-the-mud fashion sense, we must acknowledge they probably are not for us. These are more our speed:

We have news that the wildly popular Forever 21 stores will be launching plus-size fashions.

“Faith 21” is slated to launch in May, although not at all stores. For example, the Trib reports the retailer’s Michigan Avenue store will not carry the collection.

The Princess has never set even so much as a little itty-bitty toe in a Forever 21, primarily out of fear that upon doing so all movement would cease, every head would swivel in her direction and an emergency message would begin emanating from the store’s loudspeakers: “Intruder Alert! Intruder Alert! We have an old lady in the store!”  Thus we were intrigued by the shop’s Nautical Collection:

Something tells us this collection will not be seen here at the Palace.

We’ll close with a Pretty in Pink offered by the Princess Consort!

He tells us this is an albino dolphin. He also promises this is the truth and he is not making it up. We suggest taking it under advisement and consulting with local counsel.  Indeed.

Until next time dolls, have a super sunny day no matter where you are!

Another Lilly Pulitzer Stationery Giveaway from the Princess!

Hello-Hello, we hope everyone had a splendiferous weekend!

We’ll start with something we love doing here at the Princess, giving away merchandise! And because we are having insane, crazy, fabulous fun filling all of your Lilly Pulitzer stationery and Gift orders, it seems only right we do another giveaway featuring Lilly!

This time we are giving away not one, but two items from the new line, both in the Cabanarama pattern, a prize package just perfect for sitting at your computer with a cup of coffee or tea.

First, one of Lilly’s wildly popular Latte Da! mugs:

Cabanarama is seen in the lower left, a classic Lilly pattern in bright pink and green, we just love it! Of course, the mugs are also beautifully packaged in a smart and fashionable box.

How does this involve working at your computer?  Because the second item in this giveaway is a Lilly Pulitzer Take Note Mouse Pad, also in Cabanarama.

The mouse pad actually combines two items, a standard-size mouse pad topped by a pad of Lilly note paper.  So you are entering a Giveaway with a mug, a mouse pad and a pad of paper, too fun!

Here’s how to enter:

  • Leave a comment to this post to be entered once.
  • To receive a second entry in the drawing, leave a second comment naming any of the patterns in any product from our Lilly line. (Ummm, using the Cabanarama pattern doesn’t count. What a mean Princess.)
  • To be entered a third time, post this giveaway on your blog or homepage, and *please* be sure to mention this in your comment.
  • To receive a fourth entry Tweet about the Giveaway on Twitter (and Tweet us that you did or tell us you did in another comment or email us at thepreppyprincess@mac.com)
  • For a fifth entry mention this on your Facebook page (same thing – please write on our wall telling us you did, or Tweet or leave another comment, or…well, you know the drill.)

The drawing is in just a bit more than a week, Wednesday, March 4th.

And don’t forget, it is not too soon to start planning for your spring and summer parties entertaining and gift needs: graduation, Mother’s Day, showers, weddings, and all the other summer fun ahead! The Lilly collection offers everything you need from party planning to the perfect present.

Have fun, and do let us know if you have any more questions!
