About Lilly Pulitzer
Lilly Pulitzer provides apparel for men, women, and children, accessories including eyewear, shoes, and handbags; fragrance, stationery and two entertaining books, all inspired by the authentic Palm Beach lifestyle. It all began when a young, enterprising, New Yorker named Lilly Pulitzer opened a simple juice stand in Palm Beach in the 1950's. The citrus stains that splashed upon her clothing inspired her to create the brightly colored designs which became the unofficial uniform of the resort lifestyle. Lilly's signature prints and colors lifted spirits and revolutionized resort dressing. Now after 50 years of success, Lilly is ready to bring the same zest for life to the home.
