~ raining lilly

When it rains, it pours! This week I have been showered with Lilly Pulitzer....

On Monday, I received my Lilly Pulitzer catalog... I picked out my favorites, turned the pages, and filed the magazine away for later.

On Tuesday, I received an invitation for a Lilly event at the Markel dealership in Omaha. Mimi, a family friend was hosting a Lilly Trunk Show on Thursday. This was an easy RSVP... y.e.s.
On Wednesday, my friend Alex posted a photo on my Facebook wall of Lilly's launch in the Big Apple at the Lee Jofa showroom... I couldn't wait to read what that was all about... when I had 5 minutes. 
Thursday, as I was perusing my favorite blogs, a Lilly photo caught my eye. It didn't take me long to realize it was the same print I had seen on Facebook the day before. I hadn't realized yet that Lilly Pulitzer unveiled its new collection of fabrics for Lee Jofa for design bloggers in NYC at the very BLOGFEST event I had been fretting about not getting into! (I was too late signing up, and was put on a wait list never to be thought of again...) Sure enough, Pretty Pink Tulips posted Lilly Brings Sunshine to Blogfest featuring the very same Lilly prints! 
Thursday afternoon, I attended the Lilly trunk show in Omaha and visited with my friend Mimi. Her store, Under the Palm Tree, is in Overland Park, Kansas, and Omaha was lucky enough to have their beautiful Lilly merchandise available for a terrific trunk show and a wildly successful cocktail party/fashion show.

Look how fun the trunk show was...
A couple of cute shoppers... and there's Mimi to the right with the adorable Lilly dress and pearls...
 Tons of great ideas for graduation gifts, and summer fun...
Indeed, when it rains, it pours. I prefer when using this adage, that it refer to Lilly Pulitzer rather than actual rain. Besides Lilly, it's been raining and pouring actual rain (and hail!) the last few days, which has delayed my pot planting and my window washing... Boo! Rain or shine, Lilly prints are sure to bring a smile and some cheer even to the gloomiest of days...

I absolutely hate Lilly for me, but for everyone else it rules.
