If it’s summer, it has to be Lilly Pulitzer!

LILLY PULITZER, DELIA DRESSIn 1993, when the Lilly Pulitzer brand was revived, “preppies” across the country (and likely across the world) rejoiced! Splashy and lighthearted, since 1959 Lilly prints have captured the very essence of easy summer living.

From skorts and golf skirts, to scarves, sandals, and even jewelry, Lilly offers clever prints for every occasion While certainly not “high fashion,” for weekend wear, who else could make pink, frolicking lobsters so very appealing?

The most instantly recognizable piece from Lilly, of course, is the Shift Dress, which soared to popularity when First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy famously wore one on the cover of Life magazine.  And, although it made its debut decades ago, the Lilly Shift Dress is still a best-seller today.

For summer 2014, Lilly has a brand new crop of fun-loving prints, including one of my favorites, the Delia Shift Dress, pictured here in the Spa Blue Lobstah Roll pattern. The sleeveless, 100% cotton shift is a must-have for trips to the beach, sightseeing, or casual dinners al fresco. Retail $178

LILLY PULITZER MARIGOLD SKORTSkorts and golf skirts are more must-haves (in multiples!) for summer. I absolutely love the colors of the Marigold Lace Trim Skort, shown in the Resort White Crystal Coast pattern. Made of 100% cotton, this above-the-knee skirt has cheeky side slits and falls 17” from the natural waist. Perfect for barbeques, shopping, and picnics by the lake! Retail $108

To see the entire line, including patterns like Quahog Chowdah (seahorses), Oh Cabana Boy (beach umbrellas), and Jellies Be Jammin (jellyfish), visit Lilly Pulitzer.
