New & Cool at The Princess for Fall & End of Summer Savings

Hello-Hello, happy Thursday and almost-long-weekend.

Despite all attempts to ignore the harsh reality of the changing calendar (sniff), your truly is forced to acknowledge summer is on the wane. (Wipes tear from eye.) One upside of the seasonal shift? New goodies at the Preppy Princess, always a helpful distraction.

Lots of the new treasures are personalized, including one of our hottest sellers, Personalized Acrylic Necklaces.

Personalized Acrylic Necklaces at PreppyPrincess.com

These come in a variety of styles and colors, they range in price from $54-69.  Our new Sterling/Pewter/Goldtone Pendants have also proven popular, they start at $79.

Sterling Monogram Pendants

Also personalized, the Monogram Bracelets from Lovie & Dodge, available in loads of fun styles and only $22.

Monogram Cuff Bracelets

The design whizzes at Clairebella have come up with a whole line of locker and dorm decor, including Magnetic Dry Erase Boards ($31), Magnetic Photo Frames ($23), and Pencil/Cosmetic Bags ($29).

Clairebella at PreppyPrincess.com

Arguably the most popular non-personalized item this week, the new Lilly Pulitzer Fitted iPad Case with Smart Cover.

Lilly Pulitzer Fitted iPad Case with Smart Cover

Available in four patterns (Dirty Shirley, Gimme Some Leg, See You Later and May Flowers), these are the cases that become a stand in addition to covering your iPad.  They also offer battery-saving “auto sleep,” they work with the iPad 2 and “new iPad,” what we’re calling the iPad 3 here (our little pea brains are too addled to keep them all straight), they are $39.50.

There are also snappy new patterns for Lilly iPad/Netbook Sleeves this fall, still only $25.50.  Also seen in this image, the new Lilly Calculators, they are only $9.50 and about as cute as it gets for desk accessories.

You see another look at the calculators below, along with the Lilly Binder Clips ($9.50 and in stock) and Portable Speakers ($24.50), more ways to spice up the office or dorm.

Back to personalized goodies, our Preppy Planet ‘Bottom Line’ phone cases continue to sell like crazy, we think the $24.50 price has a lot to do with it.

The nautical designs have also proven popular on our Personalized Folio Cases for iPads and Netbooks, a great buy at $60.

Personalized iPad, Kindle & Netbook Cases at PreppyPrincess.com

These also convert into stands.

People seem to be fond of the Our Favorite Things Collection for phone cases and Netbook/Reader/iPad Sleeves.

“Favorite Things” Collection at PreppyPrincess.com

In honor of tonight’s college football kickoff we wanted to share a few of the Personalized Garden Flags ($40) and House Flags ($80).

G’bye until next time!

Friday Fun That’s Peepalicious, A New Nautical Collection

Hello and Happy Friday.

We begin with one of our favorite events this time of year, the Annual Washington Post Peeps Diorama contest.  As explained in the paper’s story about the event:

After six years, our annual Peeps Diorama contest has become a survey of all that touches and taunts our collective consciousness, an anthology of absurd, artistic triumphs displayed through malleable marshmallow rabbits and chicks.

As always with this contest, art imitated life, highlighting the farcical fabulousness of human behavior long after submissions stopped pouring in.

This year’s winner: OccuPeep D.C., seen above and in the next photo.

Deb Lindsey for The Washington Post

One of the finalists played off a popular internet meme with “What People Think Peeps Are“:

Deb Lindsey for The Washington Post

Below we see two examples of that, the one on the right  is meant to show how Peeps’ parent company, Just Born, feels about the concoction, portraying them as saintly beings generating a little cash.

Of course we saw a takeoff on the Royal Wedding.

Deb Lindsey for The Washington Post

My favorite part of this one is the person carrying the bride’s train, “Peepa”.

Deb Lindsey for The Washington Post

Semifinalists included the GOPeeps Peepadential Debate.

And a takeoff on a classic Beach Boys album cover.

A personal favorite is Welcome Home Peeps, showing a scene at BWI during a “Operation Welcome Home Maryland” event greeting returning troops.

There are loads more fun dioramas, including Peepdom Abbey, The Boston Peeps (as opposed to the Pops), even a scene showcasing one of our AntiPreps, Peeping up with the Kardashians. For all of the Post’s Peeps contest coverage, click here.

BTW, for anyone who may have given up sweets as a Lenten devotion there’s something that could help tide you over until you can say nibble on one, say hello to the Giant Peeps Plush Bunny.

Peeps and Company

It’s the traditional Peeps Bunny captured in a larger than life 2′ 7″ plush toy. They are awfully cute critters but the price is not as nice: $150, ouch.

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

Our other topic today involves a talented twosome readers have seen us write about before, Kiel and Sarah of Kiel James Patrick renown.

Kiel James Patrick Tumblr

In addition to everything she already does with the company she and Kiel have, Sarah Vickers is branching out.

Preppy Princess.com

Now on their way to the Prepatorium, those are pieces from the recently launched collection created by Stacie of the Pink Pineapple showcasing some of Sarah’s favorite motifs.  The “Cape Breeze” Bangles ($28) are in the top photo, one of the Port Anchorage Toggle Bracelets ($32) is shown in the lower photo.

Ms. Vickers has also debuted her own blog recently, “Classy Girls Wear Pearls,” as well as a rapidly growing Facebook page.

It’s no surprise the new collection has a decidedly nautical aesthetic. Below we show the Atlantic Triton Earrings ($25), Anchor Link Bracelet ($68) and the Enamel Anchor Cuff ($36), available in Aqua, Navy and White. The latter two items will be arriving in several weeks, but we are accepting pre-orders.

PreppyPrincess.com

Below, Nantucket Spout Toggle Bracelets and one more Port Anchorage Toggle, all $32.

PreppyPrincess.com

Click here to see the collection, we will be adding more styles to the line as early as next week.

A reminder for frugal shoppers, this Sunday and Monday is the Annual Preppy Princess “I’m No Fool” April’s Fool Day sale, with the entire store 20% off. That doesn’t include merchandise receiving additional discounts, like our Jonathan Adler iPhone 3 Covers, already discounted 23% to $15, that means they will only be $12 with your sale savings.

This year the Sale is a two-day event; the 1st is Palm Sunday and it wouldn’t do to suggest shopping on that day. For those interested in the new new collection, those items will be included in the sale, even those that are pre-order only pieces. We’ll have a full listing in Monday’s blog, to receive the discount be sure and enter APRILDEAL at checkout.

Pink & Green Monday

Hello-Hello, gobble-gobble and all good thoughts to those kind enough to pop in for a visit.

Pink & Green Monday at PreppyPrincess.com

It’s almost time for Pink & Green Monday at the Princess. That is when we do one of our two yearly sales, and everything is at least 20% off. The frenzy starts at 12:01 am ET and ends at midnight Monday night. Use promo code PGM at checkout for your discount.  Sunday evening we’ll pop back in for a post sharing additional discounts on select items.

Do Not Read if Offended by Shameless Self-Promotion

Hello-Hello and happy springtime day to all!

Welcome to one of only two special days we have every year at Princess InterPlanetary HQ, it’s our special post celebrating the “Not an April Fool” sale, when everything at The Preppy Princess is 20% off. (Our only other big day like this is Pink and Green Monday, the Monday after Thanksgiving.)  If thinking about shopping, do use promo code APRILDEAL to receive your discount, this special offer expires at midnight tonight (April 1st).

Such an auspicious occasion prompts wretched and shameless self-promotion as we focus on a few goodies from our little store. And because we don’t want to simply flirt with impropriety, we want to step madly into that vast commercial abyss with flagrant references to the “M word,” providing actual prices for each item shown. (The horror.) Psssst, these are the prices before your 20% discount, so they are even more fiscally friendly!

We begin with one of our favorite items this spring, the Scout Original Dean-o Tote in solid colors ($30), we want one in every color.  Sadly, one of each is not something the Consort can wrap his brain around.

Scout Original Deano at PreppyPrincess.com

The sale means all of our custom grosgrain ribbon belts (starting at $19 for Tiny Preps and $23 for the grownups) and Key Fobs ($6) are even better deals…

…not to mention we have added several new ribbon styles, including one that Gator fans might like.

If looking for something a tad brighter, our Candi Belts ($48) or Flip Flops ($48) might be in order.

The color combinations are loads of fun and more-than-versatile, below we show the Stewart pattern followed by Gum Drop, the green and purple together make a great style statement IOHO.

We suspect The Queen Mother and a few other Spartan fans might opt for the Spearmint pair in green and white. The colors would be particularly stylish this weekend, I understand her team has some sort of basketball game in Indianapolis on Saturday. (Heh-heh-heh.)

Don’t forget about your four-legged family members, all of our grosgrain goodies are available as Dog and Cat Collars, Harnesses, and Leashes.

The sale also offers an opportunity to snag our new Jonathan Adler Pocket Papers ($4.50) as well as the Jonathan Adler Note Cubes ($12.50) at a great price.

And to get a jump on party planning for graduations, weddings, and other goings-on.  Lilly Pulitzer has just what you need for special occasions, including re-useable Plastic Tumblers ($15) that are dishwasher safe, making them eco-friendly, and Beverage Napkins with Fun Savings ($5), excellent conversation starters.

Our  new Monogramed Polka Dot and Striped Garden Flags ($40) are perfect for gifting…

As are the Personalized Argyle Doormats ($39) and Monogramed House Flags ($59).

Our Kiel James Patrick collection is one of our fastest-growing lines, with Earrings ($28), Headbands ($26) and Braided Rope Bracelets ($35 – $58) all sporting a nautical touch. The exclusive Preppy Princess Pink/Green/White model is flying out the door.

This doesn’t begin to mention our Preppy Paper goods or Lunch Bags, the fab Towels or Pillows, and scads of other treasures.  We’ll have to leave those for you to discover at your own pace, we must scoot so we can organize the elves to handle the deluge of orders… eek!

The Nautical Prep

Hello-Hello! We hope the gorgeous sun we are seeing here at the Prepatorium is shining for all of our cherished readers, but particularly for our drenched and sodden friends in those areas pounded by yesterday’s record-breaking downpours.

The sun prompts more thoughts of boats and beaches, so we gaze upon goodies in this genre today, beginning with items for the smaller preps in your life.

We think the Girl’s Nautical Capri set is darling, as is the Little Me Nautical Romper, covered in sailboats and anchors.

We’re somewhat taken by the Oceanside Sleep Shorts (for grownup girls) and your MOTH (Man Of The House) might find the Old Port Graphic Tee appealing, both items are from one of our faves, LL Bean.

We just love the Coastal Crab hooked pillow as well as the Embroidered Crab linen pillow, both can be found at Blue Barnacles.

The red, white and blue Anchor Duffle on the left is from Fred Flare, the Anchors & Stripes Vinyl Handbag on the right was discovered at a site called PlasticLand(?).

. .

Also popular looks, the Straw Studios Anchor Tote and the Heart Anchor Tote.

Because one can never have too many reuseable market bags, below left we show the elegant Tote Aweigh eco-friendly bag ($13.99) at ModCloth, our eco-prep Anchors Away ($14) market bag is insulated, often a plus for getting things home from the market.

If seeking heels with a sea-going motif the 56 Platform Mary Jane might be for you, or Alberta Ferretti’s Nautical Wedge Sandals.

Not for us, but then, the Maine Isle Flip Flops at LL Bean are probably more our speed.

Of course, when researching one of these little thematic posts one always bumps into thing things not completely in sync with personal tastes; the TUK Nautical Anchor Heart Striped Heel Platform Double Strap Maryjanes is in this category.

Perhaps we’re not seeing their full potential.

Nautically-inspired jewelry is always fun, below we share Anchor Necklaces at Cherry Red Boutique, only $9 and $10, quite the bargain for the younger set.

When it comes to home decor, Targét offers the Oversized Striped Wall Clock, along with some cute Double-walled Plastic Tumblers (à la Tervis perhaps?).

The Nautical Lamp is available at Posh Tots,while Land of Nod carries this “Totally Nautical Bedding, Dude“.

We head back to Le Boutique Targét for this final item:

Target

The Paws Aboard Doggy Life Jacket comes in a variety of sizes and is made of nylon.

We might just have to do another post on this topic, we saw oodles of goodies we would like to share, from clothing and home accessories to more jewelry….hhhm.

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

A few quick hits:

  • Our friend Lila (aka Madison Avenue Spy) has a wonderful interview with Lilly Pulitzer’s design director, Janie Schoenborn, found here.
  • We have a gentle reminder for those interested in tomorrow’s Princess event:

DON'T FORGET....

Our ‘Not an April Fool’ special gets underway at midnight tonight: everything at The Princess is 20% off for one-day-only, ending at 11:59pm tomorrow (Thursday, April 1st) night. The promo code to enter at checkout is APRILDEAL, all one word.

The sale includes everything at the shop, from our brand new Jonathan Adler Nifty Gifties to our Lilly Pulitzer and Kiel James Patrick collections; our Greek Preppy paper and bag tags, the new monogramed Argyle Doormats and House Flags (talk about a great wedding gift!) in our Preppy Home Collection, and other preppy standards you have come to expect, our Ribbon Flip Flops, Custom Grosgrain Belts, and Scout totes, to name just a few.  We hope to see you there!

The Princess’s Culinary Catastrophe, Pink & Green Monday

Hello-Hello and Happy Monday!

Did everyone enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving? We hope so, we are grateful to have enjoyed ours with TQM, it was loads of fun finished off by a fierce Scrabble tournament.  In the interest of full disclosure, we must report that The Queen took the trophy, despite our snappy 7-letter word.

We bow before the prowess of our opponent.

The real Thanksgiving tragedy involved the creation of a very simple side dish, something we have successfully made ever-so-many times here at The Prepatorium.  Usually it looks very much like this:

All we can say is that this was not a good year for the molded cranberry salad, the crop was disappointing. (Ahem.)

Here is the evidence of our little mishap to demonstrate we are not  exaggerating things.

Readers may have noted the lack of any shape or form. Any evidence this gelatinous mass sat in a mold of any kind. For. Hours.

It wasn’t even possible to contain the slithering mess to a flat surface, let alone its original serving plate.  The concoction was so liquified it resembled the creature in “The Blob,”, oozing off everything before hardening into a substance that becomes almost impossible to remove from a counter or floor unless one brings in power tools .

Fortunately the evening was spent with a forgiving group who cared only about the companionship and spirit of the day. We added our gratitude for that to the lengthy list of things we appreciated on the holiday, and all year long.

Our only other item is a reminder about today’s One-Day sale, offering 20% off everything at the Princess.  So if seeking gifts for your Tiny Prep…

PreppyPrincess.com

Or looking at Lilly for a little holiday fun….

PreppyPrincess.com

Perhaps thinking about gifts with a nautical influence …

PreppyPrincess.com

Or simply seeking products in a classic preppy pattern like madras.

Preppy Princess madras merchandise

PreppyPrincess.com

Odds are you can find it at the Preppy Princess! Today’s 20% off special pricing ends at midnight, be sure to use promo code PGM at checkout to receive your discount.

Thanks so much for indulging our commercial message today, you know we try ever-so-hard to strike an appropriate balance here on the Planet.  We’ll be back tomorrow with our more standard post, including pictures from some of the activity at this weekend’s Bal Crillon (Le Bal Des Debutantes) in Paris.

Until then, smiles all around!
