Today, Lifeguard Press is celebrating the classy lady who made bright colors and shift dresses part of our everyday wardrobe…Lilly Pulitzer!
It all started with a juice stand in Palm Beach 50 years ago. Lilly, a young New York Socialite, had just eloped with Peter Pulitzer and settled in Palm Beach. Looking for a fun hobby, Lilly decided to open a juice stand featuring local citrus. Her business was a hit, but all the squeezing made a mess of her clothes, so Lilly designed a dress to camouflage the stains. The result: A comfortable sleeveless shift made of bright, colorful printed cotton in pink, green, yellow and orange–the Classic Shift.
Customers loved her dress and soon she was selling more shifts than juice. She decided to stop squeezing and focus solely on selling her “Lillys.” Before long, Jackie Kennedy began wearing Lillys. Then, of course, everyone wanted one and Lilly Pulitzer® became a fashion sensation. Throughout the ’60s and ’70s, the Lilly Pulitzer line was the uniform of the affluent at play. Her stores sprang up in favorite resort towns of the jet set and Lilly’s pink and green colors became the banner of the resort lifestyle!
In celebration we are offering the Lilly Pulitzer® Cocktail Shakers on sale! Join us in wishing this fabulous lady a VERY Happy (it is not classy nor polite to reveal a lady’s age!) Birthday!
“Too Much is Never Enough”
Calling all LGP fans! We want you to show us how you are using the Lilly Pulitzer, Jonathan Adler, and Susan Branch products. I have searched through Lilly Pulitzer’s site and found some awesome examples of how you Lilly lovers are bringing the items to life.
Here are some of my favs:
These girls found clever ways to use our garland and wrapping paper outside of their usual purpose. Have you done something you feel is just as genius? If so, show us yours! Its easy and fun to load your fan photos to our Facebook page.
P.S: The Lilly fans are showing up the Jonathan Adler and Susan Branch fans! I can’t find one fan photo with our JA or SB gift products, we would love to see what you guys are doing!

We hope you all enjoyed your weekend and are looking forward to the approaching 4th of July Holiday! This morning we were enjoying our morning coffee (in our Greek Key Thermal Mugs), planning our 4th of the July cookout, while watching our new brand Dylan’s Candy Bar on The Early Show giving tips on adding some festive flair to our barbeque! Speaking of festive flair: today only Jonathan Adler’s Paper Lanterns will be on sale. These are must have for your 4th of July celebration!
We wanted to commend you all on your brilliant efforts on Friday’s question! We hope it didn’t make you want to throw a few pots! In 2006, what global icon did Jonathan Adler teach to throw a pot? The one and only Oprah!!

Jonathan Adler was featured on the episode of Oprah “Loving What They Do”. Jonathan shared with Oprah that he has one overall intention behind everything he designs. “I feel your home should make you happy,” he says. “The real intention is to make stuff that’s very personal, very idiosyncratic, and very uplifting.” Doesn’t that give you the motivation to redecorate!? We know of a picture frame that would be perfect in your redecorating…
