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!

Happy Administrative Professionals Day! What a wonderful holiday to celebrate those who help make our jobs more effecient and feel like we accomplished more in our day. The best Administrative Professional understands that staying organized is essential and we, here at Lifeguard Press, are happy to provide you some of your everyday office organizational items with a colorful twist. For example, opening your file cabinet is a happy experience when you use Jonathan Adler File Folders, as well, highlighting important information becomes chic with the Jonathan Adler highlighters. We also love all of the desk organization decorations from the Lilly Pulitzer stationery collection … especially, a thermal mug for your coffee, circle notes for quick messages and magnetic board for all of the memos that need to stay close.
Wishing you a wonderful, colorful organized day! (Whether you have the best Administrative Professional on the planet – or, you are your own!)

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.)

There is something about Easter time that just makes Spring feel a little more official. The grass is greener, flowers are blooming … and color is popping up everywhere! And, during this time of year, childhood memories of Easter Egg hunts and little yellow Peeps always brings a smile. It is obvious at Lifeguard Press that we love color (and, like to think of the extra, colorful, yummy candy around the office as “inspiration!”) Over the past several weeks, we have loved helping stores and customers pick out their Easter Basket supplies and thought we’d share with you some of our favorites.
So many of our customers have shared that the Lilly Pulitzer and Jonathan Adler stationery and gifts hav been very popular this year! Especially the Lilly Pulitzer Activity Book, Watches and Pinwheels. As well, the Jonathan Adler mini-journals and sticky notes are quite the best-sellers to add a little “happy” to baskets. We also love the idea of using the Luggage Tags as ” to and from” gift tags for baskets.
Of course, to have an Easter Basket … you have to have a basket to put everything in! We love the personalized gingham baskets from Williams-Sonoma. The chocolate bunner and cookie are cute – all it needs is a little gift from Lifeguard Press to be complete. And, we love the creative gals at the Lilly Pulitzer store in Ardmore, PA for chooing a bucket to fill with goodies. (Way to “think outside the basket!”) It looks like something the Easter Bunny would pick out himself!
The possiblities are endless with so much colorful and fun items from Lilly Pulitzer and Jonathan Adler stationery & gfit selections found at Lifeguard Press. We wish you and your families a wonderful weekend!
