Friday Fun: Meet a Mini Preppy Princess

Hello-Hello, and Happy (oh-so-joyous) Friday!

Today we offer our inaugural effort at Friday Fun, something we shall attempt on those weeks when we are so swamped with business, volunteer and other activities we are simply incapable of creating a post containing anything remotely witty, wise, or otherwise wonderful.  Not exactly Thoughtful Thursdays or Wordless Wednesdays, just some light, bright, fun events and activities as captured by you, our treasured readers!

We do admit being a tad anxiety-ridden, as we are starting with a Friday Fun event that may be tough to top. Take a look:

That Little Princess is PrepSchool 101’s precious Lady C, all smiles with a package from the Preppy Princess.

Inside?

Little Miss C’s new friends are named ‘Barrett’ and ‘Genevieve’ (perhaps she somehow knew about our Great Aunt Genevieve…?), and they are part of her Lilly Pulitzer Paper Doll set.

We think this Little Princess has an outstanding eye for fashion, as her new friends are very well-dressed and perfectly accessorized; clearly they’ll make quite the style statement when they head out the door.

Seeing what a helpful assistant Little Miss C has was also very impressive.

The skills and assistance offered by Jane-the-kitty are not to be overlooked. Perhaps equally important? Jane is almost as style conscious as her supervisor, just look at her preppy madras collar by Katie and Olive. And we love a kitty with a conscience; proceeds from sales of these collars go to a very good cause, visit Puppy Love by Erin to learn more.

To enjoy all of the fun with Miss C, or to simply see her enjoying other activities of a Preptastic sort, pop in and visit PrepSchool 101, always an enjoyable, enlightening, and more-than-fashionable read!

Our other Friday Fun element involves introducing readers to a new blog focusing on a favorite topic: Lilly!  That’s right, the irrepressible Muffy Martini has created a new home for those loving all things Lilly: the appropriately named Lilly Lovers is the spot to be!

In fact, Muffy and a good friend of hers, Mrs. Newlywed, (whom we adore and consider ourselves fortunate to have on our little Princess Team), were so excited about the new blog they convinced us we needed to help Muffy celebrate, and we said “Why not?”

We let them talk us into doing something we have never done before: offering 10% off everything on our site.  To receive the discount, use promo code MUFFYDEAL at checkout.

We conclude our initial Friday Fun effort with a reader request: send us your fun photos, stories, anything at all you think others might enjoy seeing to brighten their day!

More Lilly Pulitzer Sneak Peek & “When Logos Attack”

Hello-Hello everyone, happy Thursday!

We are ever-so-pleased to finally be composing our little post today, because it means that electrical service has been restored to the Prepatorium. Honestly, this is the sort of thing that causes us to question the wisdom of that moat around the Palace, you all know the perils of raising the drawbridge when lacking electrical power, the minions are just so cranky on this issue.

And frankly, the timing is classic, as we had such grand Bloggage plans today, coordinated in advance with Miss Misadventures Herself (aka Misadventures of a Newlywed) as we were covering the same topic, and we were both going to send our readers to each other’s site to “see more pictures.” Pictures of what, you ask?

Why, it’s time to share more from this fall’s new (and exceptionally fabulous) Lilly Pulitzer Stationery and Gifts Collection, arriving here at the Princess within weeks!

We start with the new Lilly Holiday Ornament Sets.

These are offered in our favorite color combo, natch, and will run $17.50 for a set of three.

We have moved up the start of pre-ordering, it begins Monday, the 6th!

Next on our hit parade, the Lilly Highlighters Set, an ideal gift for any time of the year, definitely perfect as a stocking stuffer.

Also new on the horizon, the Lilly Cocktail Shakers, more-than-fun IOHO, sure to make any beverage tastier.

Shaken Up and Juice Bar, left to right respectively, are the patterns for the shakers, retailing at $39.50.  And Juice Bar will match all of the other Lilly Juice Bar and Juice Stand tableware for an even more stylish table.

Also on the beverage front, new Thermal Travel Mugs.

Does anyone else recognize a familiar piece of clothing or two…? These look like loads of fun for your Tiny Prep.

We cannot believe how quickly our IT Department (cough-cough, IT Dept = The Consort) has created the new web pages for everyone to use to pre-order, he is just Mr. Speedy!

This next item is so incredibly fabulous we absolutely had to include it today, despite it making the post even pokier than usual.

It’s the collaboration between Lacoste and Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana, creating polo shirts for the preppy retailer’s 4th Holiday Collector’s Series.

How remarkable are these?

There will be 20,000 of the limited edition polos available, and while much-too-cool for yours truly, we adore their spirit.

There will also be a “Super-Limited Edition” (ahem) of the shirt seen below, created entirely from the little Lacoste Alligator logos.

There are to be only 12 men’s and 12 women’s in this version; here is a closer look, via Yatzer.

If wondering about our Logophobia, we can only say “non, non, non, ce n’est pas un problème,” for these appear to be done with an artistic eye, yes, but an outlook accompanied by a touch of whimsy.  They do not appear to take themselves too seriously. Very, very witty.

Now, if seeking furniture, the brothers are also noted for their Alligator Chair.

Indeed.

Grins and giggles until next time!
