Here is a little more information about the Holiday Party: For 30 years, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of San Diego has been providing a Holiday Party, a break from illness, for hundreds of families of children with blood cancers. It is a day to forget their troubles and reunite with the community of families like theirs.
Ronald McDonald House is partnering with LLS for the second time. This means that together, we will also be hosting their patients and families, some staying in San Diego, far away from home, while a child in their family is in the hospital. Let's help make them feel the holiday spirit, too! This year we will host over 300 child patients and their often overlooked siblings, to lunch, crafts, fun entertainment, raffles and Santa, with gifts for everyone at the Sheraton Hotel. Everything must be donated, no funds are taken from the Society's mission to find a cure.
This sounds like such a lovely event! If you are in the area, I would highly recommend stopping by this event on Monday, November 30!

Hello friends! Many of you will be attending the OFFICIAL Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale later this week in Pennsylvania. While I am just a tad too far to make it in myself (only around 3000 miles away...), I am excited to see what everyone brings back and what the experience was like.
I am tentatively planning to make the Spring 2010 Warehouse Sale next year, so watch out King of Prussia!
Will you be going to the sale? What are you hoping to find there? Lilly Lovers want to know!
While we are on the topic of sales and Lilly Pulitzer, many Lilly Lovers were VERY unhappy with the very first online Lilly sale. Lilly's Facebook page was inundated with negative comments: "This isn't a good sale, guys. Only a handful of things in a few sizes available. If you're going to promote heavily, you gotta have the stuff to back it up. Badly done." and "are you kidding I just woke up for this?" were just a few of them.
I signed on at 4:35a (7:35 EST), and was surprised by the limited selection. The prices were also a little higher than I expected. I suppose with the huge email campaign they put out I thought it may have been a bigger deal. Having said that, I hope that Lilly continues to provide Lilly Lovers with a chance to buy directly from them, and at a discount. Everyone loves to save money, especially in the current economy. Many Lilly Lovers picked up items they had been eyeing for ages such as the gorgeous Seamus dress and Kassidy dresses. There were also the exquisite jeweled clutches. The turquoise one retailed for $850 and was $249 during the sale. Now, that's a sale!
What are your thoughts on the first-ever Lilly run online sale? Were you amazed by the selection and prices or did the whole thing sort of disappoint? Lilly Lovers want to know!!!!

I am sure an email will come out with more details and the official rules. How exciting! The prizes are as follows:
REDUCE PRIZE: Five winners get their choice of an Originals tote.
REUSE PRIZE: Three winners get a piece from the Originals collection in THREE prints!
RE-LILLY GRAND PRIZE: One lucky winner gets TEN shifts! EGADS! Lucky girl!
Doesn't this sound SO fun?! I really want to enter. Here is Janie with her old pieces and what she plans to do with them (PS: Do you think her hair always looks that good or do you think she has it done for these on-screen appearances? Just wondering!):

PALM BEACH, FL – Beginning this November, Lilly Pulitzer is launching a year-long “Lilly Loves Green” campaign. Following the brand’s 50th Anniversary “Jubilee”, the launch of Lilly Pulitzer’s year of green comes perfectly timed with America Recycles Week, which runs from November 8th to the 15th. Lilly has never repeated a print in 50 years, and this time their signature prints will raise funding and awareness for important green causes.
Looking back over 50 years, what really makes people smile are the old Lillys. Not wrinkled and old. But worn and loved and just eeking good stories. They have a memory of a vacation to somewhere sunburnt and wonderful. A mom saved them for her children. Or a cousin wore them, passed them to a neighbor who is packing and saving them for a sister.
They’re meant to be recycled! Fortunately people have been recycling Lilly Pulitzer for years, whether passing it along to future generations to enjoy, or searching consignment stores for pieces they know will last for decades. So Lilly Pulitzer is introducing a capsule of items that are just that…the “Originals” collection. Launching in tandem with America Recycles Week, they embody everything that’s treasured about Lilly and will be here for generations to come, in the hopes that wearers will enjoy them to the fullest and then pass them along. In other words… Reduce.
The Lilly Pulitzer Resort collection features one print called “In the Slim”, inspired by an iconic Slim Aarons fashion photograph taken in 1964 for the pages of Town & Country. Modern day “Originals” Kick and Kyra Kennedy, daughters of Bobby Kennedy Jr., carry on the family tradition by modeling “Originals” styles in Lilly Pulitzer’s Resort campaign. They are following in the footsteps of “original” Lilly fans, Jackie, Kathleen and her mother, Rose Kennedy. The Kennedy gals even donated all of their modeling fees to family-founded Riverkeeper Foundation, an organization dedicated to keeping the Hudson River as green as possible. Beyond being “sustainable” in concept, the collection itself is also eco-friendly: All hangtags and in-garment labels are made of 100% recycled material. The collection is officially endorsed by Cotton Inc., and the dye process in which the garments are printed is internationally certified as using low-impact dye, eliminating any harmful byproducts.
The common recycling statistics are out. An aluminum can take 500 years to break down. A glass bottle can take 1000. Did you know Americans throw out an average of 68lbs of clothing a year? Lilly Pulitzer is enlisting its customers to help recycle clothing, by donating it to a very worthy cause. Someone in need of something special…and Lilly’s got just the group! Meet The Princess Project. A 100% volunteer effort and non-profit organization solely devoted to putting smiles on girls’ faces. They provide free dresses and accessories to high school girls who could not otherwise afford them to wear to one of the most memorable nights in a girl’s life…prom. Lilly Pulitzer is inviting customers nationwide to dive into their closets to recycle for mother earth and an incredibly good cause… Between November 8th and 15th, customers are asked to donate “gently worn” special occasion dresses (old prom, bridesmaid and other one-hit wonders in the closets!) to help make memories for some deserving young girls! The giving goes both ways…for every dress donated, customers receive a $10 credit towards your next “Originals” purchase. Bring dresses to your favorite participating Lilly Pulitzer store or send to [Lilly Pulitzer for The Princess Project 800 Third Avenue, King of Prussia, PA 19406] Lilly Pulitzer will be packaging and sending all donations from its headquarters (affectionately known as the Pink Palace) and stores to The Princess Palace!
If that weren’t enough to kick off a year of eco-chic activity…what’s pink, printed…and “green” all over? Lilly Pulitzer’s new electric car! Many are out there zipping around in traffic-stopping Lilly Jeep Wranglers, but the folks at Lilly Pulitzer couldn’t very well spend a year loving green and great causes that support our environment, without offering a new form of transportation that fit the bill. It’s affectionately referred to as an E-LILLY by Tomberlin Automotive Group. It’s 100% road worthy, charges with any standard 110v household outlet, and travels for over 30 miles on a single charge. The E-Lilly can be customized with just about anything you want…2-seat, 4-seat, golf bag, trunk and more… even a monogram, and will deliver just in time for the holidays! Prices start at $12,995 for the standard E-LILLY. However, if purchased before December 31, 2009, the buyer is eligible for a tax credit from the federal government! The Lilly Loves Green campaign has just begun, stay tuned for future seasons raising awareness for endangered species, buying local and more.
WOW! Let's review. Lilly is doing their part for the environment, helping girls' smile, AND the new Lilly car can be plugged into the wall socket?! Now, if that doesn't make your day, I don't know what would.
VERY exciting news here at Lilly Lovers today! VERY exciting indeed!!!!
