Today we lost a true American Fashion Icon that defined the Ultimate Palm Beach Preppy style.
Lilly Pulitzer was born into high society and well could have ridden that train out, but instead her path was a different one. After marrying her first husband, who owned citrus groves in Southern Florida, she opened a juice stand in the 1950’s off of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach….Can you even imagine???? In need of a dress that hide the stains from a day at the juice stand the classic Lilly we think of today was created!!!!
Her use of colors are so optimistic and just make you smile not to mention some her subject matter is a total trip…from the alligators to monkeys on chandeliers to zebra’s frolicking with butterflies this is the perfect preppy twist for me!
Love, Peace and Lilly,
