Preppy Bits & Bytes for a Wednesday

Hello-hello, and welcome to a work week already shorter than most!

We begin with good news from a brand we adore, Toms, the company that donates a pair of shoes for every pair sold. Toms is now selling wedges in addition to their other styles.

We had not previously noticed the Tiny Toms, cute as can be! We recognize they do not provide loads of support for little feet, but think they are still great for a walk on the beach.

We do love this company.


As we were speaking about Tiny Preps, how cute are these umbrellas?

All of the umbrellas may be found here at Kidorable, where there are equally fun hats and hanger sets.

It seems a few of these might be stellar gifting items.


In Sales & Saving news, a reminder that the Garnet Hill sale is underway.  This means that all Lilly Pulitzer Home collection for Garnet Hill is 20% off through June 22.


Other Lilly Pulitzer is also on sale at Garnet Hill, including the Puff-Sleeve Knit Dress (now $34 from $48) and the Girls’ Scooter (also originally priced at $48 and now offered at $34).

Lilly Pulitzer for grown-up girls is also on sale at many establishments, including Saks, where one will find the Allegra dress now selling at $229, discounted from the original $328 price. On the right we show the Adelson Maxi Shift Dress, originally $298, now $208.

And Saks offers lots of Lilly at discounted price points right now; the darling Dress & Bloomer Set is $47.60 (originally $68), while the Toddler Boys & Little Boys Swim Trunks in Palm Print are $42, from the original $60 price.

Brooks Brothers Finally Shows Some Love to the Young Miss in your Mansion

Hello-Hello, and welcome to another OTT (One Topic Tuesday) here at the Prepatorium.

And what a lovely topic it is: Brooks Brothers is adding a long overdue line, this one for the Young Miss at your Palace.

The venerable retailer is launching the collection in time for back-to-school wardrobe needs. And we are just delighted to learn who is designing the collection: Nikki Kule. We have long admired Miss Kule’s design aesthetic, showing a piece from her fab childrens’ line back in May of 2008.

Readers won’t be surprised to learn we love the Kule look (and logo, it is an anchor) as seen below in a collection of favorite styles.

Next, a grouping of favorite Boys’ items at Kule.

From today’s story in Women’s Wear Daily about the new collection, with insight from Claude Del Vecchio, the company’s CEO:

“Brooks has been offering boy’s wear since its founding, and over the years, Del Vecchio said, many girls would buy the boys’ merchandise. “That’s how women’s started too,” he said. As early as the Thirties, the company realized its polo coats for men were being worn more often by the ladies attending Miss Porter’s School for Girls. Its pink men’s button-down shirts have also been popular with women over the years. Brooks opened its first women’s department in 1949…”

Initially the line will only be in 15 stores, but the company is also doing two standalone stores with Girls’ merchandise, one in Westport and one in Kansas City.  And if the collection is popular it will be carried in more stores.


Lilly fans may want a reminder that the Lilly Pulitzer Home for Garnet Hill collection launches tomorrow!

With that we say g’bye until next time!
