Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2010 & Target’s Next Designer

Hello-Hello, we hope you are enjoying a happy, summery day, it is simply glorious here at the Prepatorium.

Today we are all adither, scurrying about with TMTDTLT (too-much-to-do-too-little-time!), so once again, with apologies, we resort to more fluff than stuff.

Let’s start with an upbeat topic, the Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2010 Collection. We always enjoy seeing new styles and designs, and in this case, the addition of an entirely new category for the company.

There are some lovely dresses, the Adalie Wrap Dress on the left looks fun, as does the Sophia Dress with its ruched trim at the hemline and neck.

Two dresses offering classic silhouettes, the Finn shift (L), and the Juliana (R).

The Anamaria Silk Twill Skirt is a little busy for us, certainly darling on the right person.

We’re lukewarm on some pieces; the Brinkley Shirtdress is a good example of this sentiment. The dress is likely a garment better appreciated in person, when paired with the right sweater or jacket it might be perfect office attire.

We do like the Coeli Skirt, available in two corduroy prints.

The Jonah Dress in Don’t be Koi is striking, we always get the biggest kick out of seeing Lilly apparel and accessories patterns reinterpreted for use in goods that we carry here at The Princess, like the Agenda Books in Koi; the pattern can also be seen in the Little Jonah dress.

Also fun for Minnies this fall, the Juniper Jumper with Ruffles (L) and the Little Lilly Shift, we show it in Multi Apple a Day Patch.

There is new fleece for your little one, including the Becca Half-Zip Jacket (actually available now at Splash of Pink), and the Chelsea Fleece Vest, we show it in the delightful Daiquiri Pink.

Fall brings leggings for little girls as well, including the Hotty Pink (L) and About Them Apples in Lifeguard Green.

There are new sweaters for grown-up girls, on the left we show the Alcott Argyle Cardigan, and on the right, the Paley Cardigan Striped version for fall, both available at Splash of Pink, both in that navy and pink palette that we love.

Also new this fall, the much-anticipated Activewear group, the first such pieces from Lilly. Below left we see one of the ensembles, and on the right, the Frances fleece top.

The Lotus Top at Splash of Pink comes in both a solid color and a print version, the latter definitely qualifying as a Pretty in Pink item.

The Orlando Sentinel has more on this group:

“Produced in Nike factories, the collection includes capri and full-length pants, tank tops, fleeces and sweaters made of nylon-Lycra performance interlock fabric and rayon-spandex jersey.”

An additional view.

We like the Frances Fleece Top in the printed version, there is also a full-zipper Fleece Jacket in a slim cut.

We really are hooked on the pink and navy color combination.

It’s also time for the Tess Turtleneck in Navy, or the Irving Fleece Pullover

Clearly lots to love in this fall’s collection, and we’ve only shown a scintilla of all the goodness!

Do you know what we want to wear with that fabulous pink and navy color combo?  This.


Regular readers will recognize the style statement; it is from our friend Kiel James Patrick’s new line of Sailing Belts, just launched on Monday.  We are excited to be hosting a contest giving a lucky winner the belt of their choice from Kiel.

Do pop over and enter, you could be the proud new owner of one of these little slices of fabulosity. And be sure to look at all of the wonderful Croffix Sailing belts at Kiel’s store.

A few quick Bits and Bytes:

  • The next Target design collaboration involves Justin Timberlake; his William Rast clothing line is partnering with the retailer on a new collection. The collection hits most Target stores and Target.com on Dec. 19. Below, two looks from William Rast.

  • The line has a rocker/biker edge, and most industry insiders expect to see a good amount of denim in this group.
  • In other collaboration deals, there is word of two new nail polish collections tied to popular televisions shows. Expect a Mad Men collection of polishes, and below, the Gossip Girl Nail Polish line.

  • And with word of one more collaborative undertaking, the Brooks Brothers Levi’s jeans have debuted. These are for men only, three pair are offered online and in-store.

We leave you with two SOTTs (Signs of the Times), the first involving our friends at Brooks Brothers again.

The venerable retailer is promoting its presence on Facebook, we have been fans for some time now, thoroughly enjoying the content. (If heading that way, do stop in and say ‘hello’ at the Princess page!)

Our other SOTT concerns the AntiPrep known as Snooki.

She, and other cast members from a STCBN (Show That Can’t Be Named) rang the opening bell Tuesday morning. At the Stock Exchange. In New York. The actual, real New York Stock Exchange.

Clearly, the apocalypse is upon us.  The horror.

Heh, heh, heh.

Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2010 Stationery and Gift Collection, Part 2

Hello-Hello, and welcome back from the long weekend. Hopefully no one has melted yet, although that seems to be a peril again today.

We have our second post on the Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2010 Stationery and Gift Collection. (If you missed Part One, click here.)  The Consort The IT staff has been typing their little fingers to the bone, putting new goodies up on the site for pre-ordering, and we begin with a splendid item debuting with this group, the Lilly Umbrellas!

Lilly Pulitzer Umbrellas

PreppyPrincess.com

We are now taking pre-orders on the Umbrellas ($28.50), they come in the Surf’s Blue Checking In and White Zin patterns. This Fall’s Collection brings new patterns for those wildly popular Lilly Market Bags.

PreppyPrincess.com

The new additions to the group are Just Add Lemon and How About Them Apples. The new designs are available for pre-orders, of course our Creme Fraiche and Queen of Green bags ship immediately. (All are $10.)

One of our fave items has to be the Lilly Water Bottles for Adults and Minnies ($14.50); below we show the Childrens’ Bottles in Desert Tort and Lator Gator.

PreppyPrincess.com

They go nicely with the Melamine Place Settings and Placemats. (These latter two items are from the spring line so they are available now, the water bottles are pre-order only.)

If seeking something not quite as involved as the bottle, how about a Lilly Pulitzer Koozie?

PreppyPrincess.com

The Koozies ($4.95) are available for pre-ordering in Frisky Business, Checking In and Patch Day.

The Magnetic Boards ($18.50) have new patterns too: Checking In, Koi, and White Zin.

PreppyPrincess.com

We are predicting these will be one of the hottest new gift items:

PreppyPrincess.com

The Lilly Dress Magnets come five to a set and at only $12.50 they make a fab stocking-stuffer.

Two popular gift-giving items also come in the new patterns; the Lilly Watch Sets ($19.50) will be available for pre-orders this afternoon, Checking In and Patch Day are the new patterns in these.  Another high-volume item, is also getting additions in the new themes, the Lilly Ink Pen collection ($19.50).

One of the other items ideal as a present is the iPhone cover ($19.50); below we show it in Coral Me Crazy, along with one of the new watches in that pattern.

For those who may have missed yesterday’s post, we shared the new Agenda Books in both the Large Size

PreppyPrincess.com

…and the Pocket Agenda size. These are available for immediate ordering; we expect to start shipping them at the end of the week.

Perhaps the most-anticipated items are from the new Personalized Home Collection.

PreppyPrincess.com

The new recipe boxes, ice buckets, coasters and serving trays (two sizes!) are going to be outstanding additions to the line. We hope to have the information and pricing on this group next week, we’ll let you know when we do.

Here are the other particulars on the Lilly Fall Stationery Collection:

  • As mentioned above, the Agendas will ship approximately July 10 or 11
  • We are now taking pre-orders for the other goodies in the fall line; we expect to ship pre-ordered merchandise in mid-August
  • As always, we gift wrap at no charge and are happy to include a gift card with your order, so do let us know if it is a special present for someone
