The ultimate prepster, Lilly Pulitzer died yesterday at age 81. Nothing screams summer more than a colorful Lilly dress. And how appropriate her clothing was so colorful...as it matched her colorful back story and just how she started her clothing line. We carry her clothing at the store and do extremely well with her line. Just tomorrow I'm getting a huge amount of it in. I will have to take special care arranging the shop tomorrow. My first year at the store she actually came to our store for a huge Lilly show, where I had did the windows, and the in store display featuring her clothing on a runway of mannequins. She was so pleased with the set up, she gave me a men's tie as a thank you. It would probably come in handy at a Republican fundraiser, probably which I will never attend mind ya, but I will treasure the tie. She seemed like a sweet lady. And her head quarter showroom here in King of Prussia is a sight to be seen!!!! I imagine now she is in the great fruit orchard in the sky.
