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!

It’s Charming, That Snuggie Suit, & Sally Draper’s Dress

Hello-Hello and Happy Thursday!

The crush of business forces us to post only briefly today (and not at all yesterday, eek), so we jump right in chatting about a brand we like, Links of London.  Our fondness for the company might seem a touch odd if one is taking the company’s name literally, we really only haul out our cufflinks 10-12 times a year. And when we do sport french cuffs we do vintage linkage, circa the 1930s through the 1970s.

But L2 does offer items other than what the name implies, including some darling charms.  We like the Scooter charm (now only $32 on sale!) and adore the little Welly boot ($48), both in sterling silver and both very nice bargains at those prices.

One of the smartest things the company does online? They offer a ‘create your own charm bracelet‘ application and we only have one word for it: addictive.  You can imagine how much we love the Hot Pink Heart charm, today’s Pretty in Pink.

Many readers may already know this, but for those not yet aware, the M·A·C cosmetics collaboration with Lilly Pulitzer is now available in stores and online.

As described on the MAC website:

“A collaboration that feels like the best tongue-in-chic resort retort delivers that joyously bright and refined Key West bloom: new floral patterned Pearlmatte Eye Shadow and Face Powder, plus all the retro-modern colour combinations that Lilly is famous for.”

Below we show the Lipgelées palette; from the left: Preppy, Lush & Bright, and Shift to Pink.

We did not show the Resort Life color in the swatches above, described as an “off-white with pink pearl,” but it is seen on the far left in the four-shot of the gelées:

MAC Cosmetics

These run $14, and like almost all items in the collection, they are limited editions. Neither the Pearlmatte Eyeshadow (L, $19.50) or Face Powder (R, $27) are for us, but they do look fun.

There are loads of other goodies in the collection, be sure take a peek if only for the eye candy factor.

Because we are completely delusional like to stay on top of all things Snuggie, we bring you the latest:

Yes, it is the Snuggie Suit brought to you by JC Penney. Oops! It is the Snuggle Suit with an ‘l’, not an ‘i’.  (We dare not risk the wrath of the Snuggie pooh-bahs.)  Old news for those who follow TP on Twitter, the suit is currently on sale for $24.99, this ah, this item is also available in red and an oh-so-chic black.  For more on the Snuggie phenomenon, including the Snuggie vs. Slanket controversey (gasp!) click here.

(How did this Snuggie ‘coverage’ start? What does it have to do with anything remotely related to the Preppy Planet? Has TP gone off her meds, or just off her rocker?)

For those intrigued by “Seen on TV” products, the Times has a great story today about the way Consumer Reports perceives such merchandise.

“Among products the article says are not worth buying are the Snuggie, ShamWow, Debbie Meyer Green Bags for food storage, and the Garry Ultra Light vacuum, which testers said fell short of advertised claims and, even when they had some good attributes, were overpriced.

The only item that passed muster: the PedEgg, a foot file that traps shavings in a compartment and costs about $10.”

There you have it.

And finally, word about pint-sized red carpet fashions for a Mad Men star.

Kiernan Shipka plays Sally Draper in the show and it seems the Young Miss is in need of a party dress or two for upcoming award shows. Below we see Kiernan with her mother, Betty Draper costar January Jones on the red carpet last August.

One of our favorite bloggers, Robert Janjigian at the Palm Beach Daily Post, shared that Miss Shipka was recently seen shopping at Spring Flowers on Worth. Did the intrepid writer discover a dress choice?  He did.  Miss Shipka selected the Caroline by Fleurisse, in gunmetal gray as shown below.

Spring Flowers

The silk taffeta frock is available in a number of colors. Fleurisse is a private label from the owners of Spring Flowers, long an outstanding shopping spot for the little ones.

The snow is starting to fall here at the Prepatorium, so we leave you with a dose of bright and springy colors: our soon-to-be-available Lilly Pulitzer Luggage Tags.

Until next time, may everyone stay warm and snuggly!
