Today I was sad to hear of the passing of Lilly Pulitzer, a true American fashion icon. Growing up on the East Coast, I was surrounded by ladies in Lilly and came to be quite the fan myself. Aside from many dresses and totes, I also had a Lilly bedroom in high school, complete with curtains. I share Lilly’s love of bright colors and fun patterns, and have enjoyed watching the rebirth and growth of the brand. Cheers, Lilly! You will be missed, but your legacy is sure to live on. For more on Lilly, here is her obit in the Washington Post.
