Lilly Pulitzer Spring 2012 Gifts & Stationery

Hello-Hello, and happy Monday.

We thought nothing would be better to start a fresh week than a look at some of the new goodies in our spring Lilly Pulitzer Stationery and Gifts collection. We begin with a group of items that is already very popular, the new Acrylic Collection.

Lilly Pulitzer Spring 2012 at PreppyPrincess.com

There are Pitchers, Tumblers and Wine Glasses in spring’s pretty prints, all are in stock and ready to ship now.  That includes the Nice to See You and Luscious pitchers, they are dishwasher safe, BPA, phthalate, and lead free, retailing at $21.95.  (The pitchers hold 56 ozs. of your favorite beverage, I think even Miss Janice would say that is a heap ‘o sweet tea!)

Above we also show the matching glasses, each of these holds 18 ounces, they are $19.50 for a set of two, available in Nice to See You and Luscious.

Of course, there are bright new patterns in the acrylic Wine Glasses that match the tumblers and pitchers. I don’t think I’m alone in saying the Wine Glass Sets have emerged as a go-to hostess gift on more than one occasion, they are $19.50 per set of two.

Yours truly has a fondness for flamingos just ask the neighbors, , you can guess which pattern popped out at us first, the Fan Dance napkins and paper plates are definitely smile-inducing. But we’ll always have a soft spot for pink and green, the Chum Bucket napkins and paper plates are sure to brighten up any table. (These are also in stock and ready to ship, plates are $5 for a set of 8, napkins are also $5 for a set of 20.)

The Consort thinks I should be using these all the time, he seems to believe there are issues with spillage (it washed out of the carpet, honestly), so seeing me with a lid on my drink makes him particularly glad to see the Eco Tumblers return in even more patterns, these beauties arrived last week, they are $14.95.

Earth Day at the Preppy Princess

Hello-Hello and welcome to another Earth Day!

We have mixed feelings about today’s post, as we are staunch proponents of abiding by environmentally responsible principles and policies every day.  A simple belief there is a big difference between doing things right… and doing the right thing.  Reducing, reusing, and recycling whenever and wherever possible. Sharing of your good fortune and of that which is most precious, yourself.

And we’re not crazy about discussing ourselves for many reasons, not the least of which is that we are a fairly tame (translation: b-o-r-i-n-g) collection of people and pets.  Nor do we find drawing attention to oneself to be good manners. But we are also dedicated to operating The Princess as transparently as possible, and as this blog is a big part of our public persona, we think people are entitled to know how we implement these philosophies in relationship to the shoppe.

For openers, we felt strongly about creating our Eco-Prep category of reuseable totes and market bags, believing that being green and being preppy should not be mutually exclusive terms.

EnV Bags at PreppyPrincess.com

We searched a long time for solutions to the “paper or plastic” dilemma that were also fun and fashionable. Above, our EnV Totes 3-bag set ($27)  and below, RuMe Individual Mini-totes ($8.50), all capable of carrying home loads from the grocery and also washable.

RuMe Totes at PreppyPrincess.com

The philosophy impacts the business in more ways than just offering a better solution to the market totes situation.  For example, all Princess brand stationery products are printed on 100% recycled paper. Below, some of our Note Card selections, $22 per boxed set of 10.

Additionally, we try to offer products Made in the USA, believing it is wiser to avoid shipping goods from overseas while also supporting independent businesses.  For example, our Custom Belts and Preppy Pet items are made in New England, and all items in our Preppy Home group are American Made in places like Boston and Pennsylvania and South Carolina.  Kiel James Patrick makes his accessories in Rhode Island, and Candi’s Ribbon Flip-Flops are created in Michigan.

We will soon offer a Made in America category so shoppers can search products with that specific trait.

Some readers know firsthand that we feel opening a package from The Princess should make you smile; every order is gift-wrapped at no charge. We use 100% recycled tissue paper for this.

PreppyPrincess.com

When appropriate we do use glossy paper from Lilly Pulitzer or Jonathan Adler.

PreppyPrincess.com

Additionally we are also able to recycle packing peanuts in most instances for shipping fragile merchandise. The question has been asked: “if you’re using recycled tissue and packaging, why do you then put things in a plastic bag?” Simply put, because we know it would be far more wasteful to have items damaged in shipping, returned, new product shipped, etc.

While not specifically Earth Day related, we also believe being responsible transcends conserving and protecting natural resources, it extends to sharing our good fortune and supporting other resources.  That is why we donate 5% of profits to two organizations: the Fisher House Foundation, supporting our military families, and Dogs for the Deaf; both are rated Four-Stars by Charity Navigator. To date our contributions are more than $400 to each organization.

As promised, a yawn-inducing tale, but information we think should be shared for those interested. Being good corporate citizens is important to us. And we think being good to the environment can also be fun, like Brittnee shows us with her Lilly Pulitzer Market Bags ($10) from the Princess.

It’s up there with our belief that Life is Better with a Bow.

Happy Earth Day.

Sneak Peek: Lilly Pulitzer Watches & Market Bags

Hello-Hello and Happy New Year’s Eve!

We will be brief today as we effort a little rest and relaxation, but we do have to share a quick look at some new goodies headed our way, they are bright and fun, the perfect antidote to gray and gloomy skies outside.

Our new Lilly Pulitzer Market Bags are from the Spring/Summer 2010 Stationery and Gift line, due here in early February.

Lilly Pulitzer Creme Fraiche and Queen of Green market bags

PreppyPrincess.com

Healthy in size (14″ wide x 17″ tall and almost 8″ wide), the totes are ideal for trips to the market; you can see the ‘Lilly Loves Green’ slogan on the Crème Fraîche bag in front, Queen of Green also shares this theme.  To say we are excited about the bags would be an understatement, they fit perfectly in our Eco-Prep category. (For more on Lilly Loves Green, click here or here.)

Also headed this way, the new Lilly Pulitzer Watch Sets:

Lilly Pulitzer Watches

PreppyPrincess.com

The wristwatches will come in three patterns: Later Gator, Desert Tort and the very popular Patchtastic.

PreppyPrincess.com

Some readers may recognize Later Gator from one of this year’s Lilly bracelets.

Designed for all ages, the Watch Sets come with two bands so you can swap out looks. And as we hopefully show in the first photo, they are are beautifully packaged and ready for gifting.

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

Looking at spring goodies helps us believe spring is just around the corner. Or, as the delightful Summer is a Verb puts it, we’re almost “ready to begin the count down til summer on January 4th”.

We can’t look ahead without looking back, and as 2009 comes to a close it is another cold and damp day outside, but we are warm and snuggly inside, wrapped in gratitude as the year winds down. We have been more than blessed this year, surrounded by incredible family and friends, fabulous customers and stellar vendors. (You know who you are!)

Many of our friends IRL and online have not been as fortunate, encountering challenges and struggles that would best lesser people. They continue to astonish and inspire us us with their capacity to overcome each and every stumbling block with nary a whine nor a whimper.  We watch, and listen, and try to learn from their examples.

With that, we offer an inadequate ‘thank you’ to those who share their lives with us, and send wishes to all for a safe, happy, healthy and bountiful 2010!
