After five fun years, the Lilly Pulitzer store in San Antonio closed its doors for the final time yesterday. I think you all know how much I adore Lilly and can imagine how sad I feel. I will truly miss this store and its wonderful staff, who were always so friendly and so willing to help locate an item they didn’t have in store. What a tremendous loss for our community.

Of course, I couldn't leave without one last purchase! I brought home the Jonah Dress in Don’t Be Koi, the Janet Dress in Off the Hook, the Lexie Crew in Lilly’s Pink (to pair with some of my skirts) and an Original Tote in Flowey Wowey.

As sad as the day was, I came away with one exciting surprise - a sneak peek at Lilly's upcoming Resort Collection. All I can tell you is that it is SO FABULOUS that I may just have to make a trip to Austin. (Don't forget, I have three children under the age of four. I do not routinely schlep to Austin, but for this new collection, I WILL.) You will see some of your favorite styles from recent seasons returning in to-die-for prints, along with some gorgeous new styles, and a lot of pieces that will be perfect for that long-awaited vacation. And of course the names of the new prints are so cute, so tongue-in-cheek, so Lilly...
