Lilly Pulitzer Sale Starts at Midnight

Yesterday's rumors have been confirmed.  Lilly Pulitzer is hosting a 2-day sale event at some of our favorite Signature Stores starting at midnight, and going through Friday, June 24.  My sources say that retailers are allowed to include the  first couple of deliveries from the Spring Collection in this sale, but summer merchandise will not be discounted.

For a list of participating stores, visit the Lilly Pulitzer Blog.

Note: The Pink Pelican is advertising items discounted up to 80%, and a special freebie for early bird shoppers. (Visit their blog for more details.)

Rumor Has It….

How often do you believe rumors? Do you repeat them?

I try not to spread gossip, but I heard a rumor today that’s so juicy I just had to let you all in on it. The word in “Lillyland” is that the pink and green, preppy label is about to announce one of their rare publicized sales, with many Via stores participating and items as low as 70% off. Supposedly, the sale will start tomorrow night at Midnight. (Or more accurately, Thursday morning.) Is it true? Only time will tell… but I’m working on my wish list just in case!

Upside Down

Today is a day of contradictions.

I pride myself on being (reasonably) organized. I believe that life is easier if everything has a place and things are returned to their places when you’re done with them. (Of course, there are four other people in my house who don’t always share my philosophy, so I do a lot of picking up, as well as a great deal of coaxing.) However, sometimes I clean things up so well that I can’t remember where I put them. And that’s where I find myself today.

This morning I decided to let my 16-month-old twins try crayons for the first time. And then I realized that I have no idea where I stored our set of Crayola Tadoodles Crayon Buddies when my oldest son was finished with them. My mother gifted them to us several years ago, and we quickly learned how easy they make it for a little one to hold a crayon. (I tend to think they also discourage chewing on the crayon, which seems to be a temptation for my boys.) They’re inexpensive, so I could easily buy another set, but that’s beside the point right now. I know our original set is in this house somewhere, and I’m determined to find them.

While sorting through drawers and cabinets, I needed a little entertainment. I decided to watch Kit Kittredge: An American Girl.

If you're suddenly confused because you thought I only had sons – not daughters – you’re not wrong. I don’t have any little girls. Given that I’m a child at heart, though, sometimes I still like to privately indulge in a girly movie. (I must confess, The Princess Diaries is one of my favorites.) I found Kit Kittredge to be quite entertaining, as well as educational, and after watching it I believe it would be equally appealing to a boy or a girl. This will likely be one that gets added to our list of acceptable DVDs once my boys are a little older.

What about you? What are you doing today? Is anything in your world “upside down” at the moment?

Memorial Day 2011

Thank you to all who serve, or have served in the U.S. armed forces in order to protect the freedom we all enjoy in this wonderful nation. You and your families sacrifice so much for us, and for that you have my deepest gratitude.

I hope all my readers will join me in taking a quiet moment today to remember those who have so bravely given their lives in order to protect ours.

A Sip of Summer

‘Tis the season for backyard barbeques and pool parties. Wouldn’t it be fun to jazz up your next get together with some adorably preppy drinkware? I think these Madras Sea Island Tumblers from Just Madras are just the thing for sipping a G&T while lounging on the porch and catching up with friends.

They're available online at PURSELADYTOO. The best news of all? This weekend, PURSELADYTOO is offering free shipping, as well as a 20% discount on purchases over $24.99 with the code memorial20 and a 25% discount on purchases over $100.00 with the code memorial100. What better time to indulge?
