lilly-pulitzerIconic fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer died this week at the age of 81.  I’ve enjoyed her brand for years both as an observer and a participant.

Lilly’s story is fascinating. At age 21 she eloped with Peter Pulitzer and they traded the hustle and bustle of New York City for the sun and sand of Palm Beach. In the shadow of Peter’s citrus groves, Lilly opened a juice stand. To disguise the juice stains on her clothing she had a sleeveless dress made from colorfully-printed cotton.
