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!

We love coffee! We love Starbucks! We love fabulous thermal mugs! … So, April 15th feels more like a holiday than tax day!
What a delightful surprise to discover that today is “free coffee” day at Starbucks when you bring in your own travel mug. And, the fact that it is for a good cause makes us feel like our caffine addiction has a purpose. By using your own travel mug (instead of the iconic Starbucks paper cup), we can help save more than 30 trees a day. Wow! The Lilly Pulitzer and Jonathan Adler thermal mugs are the perfect travel mug. They’re chic, they’re stylish, they’re cute. We especially love the Lilly Pulitzer “Queen of Green” pattern – which supports the “Lilly Loves Green” campaign. Seems like perfect match to us!
Grab your favorite Lilly Pulitzer or Jonathan Adler thermal mug and head to Starbucks for your coffee today … and everyday! (We’ll see you there!)
Don’t have a chic travel thermal mug? (Tsk, tsk.) We can help! Order yours today at Lifeguard Press.
(Hint: These make a great gift! Slip a Starbucks gift card inside for the perfect Graduation Gift.)
