New (and Cool) Goodies at the Preppy Princess Part 1

Hello-Hello and welcome to the Prepatorium. Today we have some Friday Fun targeted a little closer to home, we are going to share some of the wonderful new products we have added at The Princess. There are so many new treasures we have had to split the post into two parts, today we have the first portion.

We begin with word of a line we are *very* excited to offer, the Pomegranate Collegiate Collection. Behold, the official plaid of the University of Florida.

The motifs adorn all manner of items, from tote bags and duffels to tablecloths and oven mitts. All patterns and designs are officially licensed by the NCAA, here are a couple of items in the UGA (University of Georgia) group, the Tablecloth (2 sizes, $36, $64) Napkins and Koozie ($12).

The new patterns are available on all of our Clairebella products, including the personalized Phone Cases, Cutting Boards, Platters, Melamine Trays, License Plates, Clipboards and more.

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

Another addition that also makes an ideal gift, our Personalized Mugs from Lovie and Dodge, $24.50.

Not only do they offer a snappy Halloween polka dot, there are several more masculine designs, a possibility for Dad this Christmas or Hanukkah?

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

Next on our list of new and fun finds here at the Prepatorium, our stationery that matches the oh-so-preppy icons on the 2012 Preppy Calendar ($12).  Here are some of the Preppy Calendar Flat Cards in two of my favorite designs, the Plaid Woodie from the month of March, followed closely by January’s Knotted Anchor.

Of course the delightful designs are by the very talented Shannon of the Preppy Ladybug, she created all of the artwork for the Calendar. She has also created these snappy Preppy Calendar Address Labels ($4.50 and up). We show the Argyle Christmas from December (you know you need some of these!), May’s Seersucker Tote and the Polka Dot Wellies from April.

There are also darling Foldover Note Cards, we don’t have them all on the site yet, they should be there before the weekend is over.

(The poor Consort, he is typing just as fast as his fingers can fly while building the pages.)

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

Our final item today, can you guess what it is and who is all excited about it?

Jonathan Adler at PreppyPrincess.com

That’s right, Silly Tilly is all gaga over her new Jonathan Adler dog mats, only $12.50 and very durable, the mats come in four vibrant designs.

One last note:

Lilly Pulitzer Agendas at PreppyPrincess.com

Our wildly popular Lilly Pulitzer Agendas are back in stock, we have them in both Large and Pocket size in several of this year’s patterns.

On that note we say goodbye until next time, may your weekend be wonderful!

Lady Diana’s Dre$$ & Gucci Goes Young

Hello-Hello!

We begin with a quick follow-up to our previous post about this famous black party frock:

Princess Diana’s gown was auctioned yesterday for a price far exceeding the estimate of £30,000 – £50,000, ultimately selling for £192,000, approximately $276,000.

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

Just a heads-up from the corner condo here at the Prepatorium:

snarky

Pronunciation: \ˈsnär-kē\
Function: adjective
Etymology: dialect snark to annoy, perhaps alteration of snark to irritate
1 : crotchety, snappish
2 : sarcastic, impertinent, or irreverent in tone or manner <snarky lyrics>
snark·i·ly \-kə-lē\ adverb

Fair warning.

Having issued the advisory above, we move on, with news of several new lines launching in the not-so-distant future:

  • Gucci’s new Childrens line debuts June 24; it will include apparel, accessories, shoes and sunglasses. (Because there aren’t enough logoed sunglasses available for the Young Miss and Master at your Palace.) We cannot resist part of StyleList’s take on the upcoming collection.

“… since most of its target audience can’t read, the designs…  will be marked with a gold teddy bear logo (how very Kanye!) so that little Susie’s playmates will know when to seethe with jealousy.”

The Consort also offered his insight: “Why don’t they do dogs, then we could have Gucci Poochie.”

Indeed.

  • We have a backup plan for you just in case the Gucci childrenswear doesn’t pan out: the new Little Miss America collection.

    Sized for both babies/toddlers and tweens/teens, all of the items will be priced at $25 or less. Again, we turn to StyleList’s report:

“So what does a mini Miss America dress like? There’s not as many sequins and flesh-toned pantyhose as you might expect — although it is very girlie. Initial sketches show ruffled tuxedo-style tops, bow-detailed skirts, lots of pink, and a onesie with an imitation pageant sash emblazoned across the front.

Hey, just because you’re still in diapers doesn’t mean you can’t get a head start on baton twirling or prepping those responses on world peace, kids.”

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

This is the time of year when designers show their Cruise/Resort collections, and there have been some stunning pieces, beginning with Oscar de la Renta.  As seen in the following images, there is a nautical influence evident in some pieces from this collection.

The vibrant colors and elegant lines are delightful.

Natch, we are gaga for several of the party frocks.

In any length.

Perhaps our favorite:

One quick advisory, the OdlR spring collection is currently on sale.

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

The other resort collection we are sharing today is from Marc Jacobs.

The two styles shown above almost qualify as a Pretty in Pink… and Green, but it is a tad challenging to see the colors with images this size.

The WWD (Women’s Wear Daily, subscription req’d.) review described some of the looks as “…playful preppy.” We particularly like the dress on the left.

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

Next on today’s hit parade, a few product updates, beginning with a fast glance at some of the springtime treasures recently added to the fab merchandise mix at Just Madras. The Girls dresses look darling…

As do the bow ties for your MOTH (Man of the House), or the always-popular Madras Skirts.

We do love the ladies at Just Madras, and too many of their goodies!

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

We are tickled to share additions to our Preppy Ladybug line here at The Princess, here are more delightful designs by Shannon.

We have added patterns to our Flat Card selection ($15 for a set of 12), like the navy/red/lobster motif, as well as a new pink & green gator.

There are new designs ideal for the younger set. (It’s never to early to start them on the handwritten note concept, IOHO.)

There are also additions to the Ladybug’s Stickers and Labels line ( $4.50), including blue and pink perfect for announcing blessed arrivals, as well as that wonderful lobster.

One can even do a coordinated set for their little princess.

We adore the Ladybug and her fabulous eye.

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

We leave you with an image that we understand has provoked some chatter about the watercooler, so to speak.

When initially seeing this photo we knew two of the individuals pictured above. After all, they carry the distinction of being charter members in the Original AntiPrep Class of 2008. (Paris and Nicky Hilton.) It has been explained to us by TSU (The Spousal Unit, aka The Consort) that the other two creatures are named Snooki (sp?) and Jwoww(sp?). Our question to those in the know: are the latter two individuals solid candidates for the APHOS? (Anti Prep Hall of Shame.)

Do tell. We have an expiring mind dying to know.

Until next time, may your afternoon be filled with smiles!
