Lilly Pulitzer For The Florida Fashion Win

Lilly Pulitzer for the All Ages

Lilly Pulitzer shops throughout South Florida are the perfect place to go to, to outfit your entire family, office, and home! At #SoooBoca we are Lilly regulars; we love the bright cheerful patterns, the easy-to-wear clothes, and simply fabulous accessories.

No matter what the occasion, Lilly seems to always be my go-to staple in my Boca Raton closet!

The Story of Lilly Pulitzer

Today, the brightly colored floral apparel that signifies the designs by Lilly Pulitzer has become synonymous with South Florida. The socialite was living in Palm Beach when she leveraged her husband’s ownership of citrus groves and began selling freshly squeezed juice.

Her dressmaker designed a “uniform” for her to wear while she worked; something to hide the stains resulting from splattering citrus. 

The brightly colored dress was such a hit with her juice clients that she transitioned her efforts and the “Lilly Pulitzer” brand was born.

Now in operation for sixty years, this iconic resort wear brand has certainly stood the test of time. 

Lilly for Everyone

While the brand initially produced women’s “shift dresses” it has grown and diversified over the years and now serves people of all ages.

Women’s apparel has expanded from simple dresses to include tops and bottoms, loungewear, activewear, rompers, shoes, and swimsuits. 

Lilly Pulitzer Romper

The line for girls encompasses everything from dresses and rompers to swimwear. There is also a large selection of “matching items”, perfect for those mother/daughter photo ops!

If you were hoping to include your husband and sons in your family picture, you are all set. The brand now provides matching swimwear for men and boys.

Lilly Pulitzer Accessories Are Everything

As the company grew it also began to produce classic yet trendy accessories, many of which (including scarves, notebooks, and agendas)  feature the iconic “Lilly Pulitzer” prints.

The brand also shares a line of sunglasses, jewelry, bags, and travel accessories. PS…love their earrings and bracelets!

And yes, even a gown! I wore Lilly Pulitzer at my daughter Kylie’s wedding Labor Day Weekend 2023. I wore a skort dress for the rehearsal dinner and one for the Sunday BBQ!

Get the gown! It fit beautifully, was elegant for an afternoon wedding and frankly was a mother-of-the-bride gown hit! PS…Kylie picked it out for me!

Palm Beach Look Anytime Of The Year

Palm Beach was home to Lilly Pulitzer and her influence remains strong today. The stores are located throughout South Florida and, when traveling the area you are sure to see her timeless fashions well represented.

At #SoooBoca we LOVE our Lilly!  Her styles are perfect for all of the things we love to do and there is a store conveniently located in the Town Center mall here in Boca. 

I was gifted this cool cooler for my birthday a few years ago and it is truly one of my favorite Lilly Pulitzer items! Functional and fabulous! Click on the pic for deets via Amazon.

Sunshine Sale

A favorite time of year for me is when Lilly Pulitzer has their “sunshine sale”.

I save gift cards from my birthdays and holidays that my family has given to me to get extra discounts on Lilly clothes and accessories that I love including home decor items!

Casually Elegant Fashion

We can dress casually for a day of window shopping and lunch, don her spectacular swimwear for a visit to the beach or pool, and dress up and accessorize for dinner at one of our favorite local restaurants.

We adore her products; their patterns always make us smile.  And, in keeping with times, Lilly now offers the ultimate accessory,  a line of machine-washable face masks.

Giving Back To The Community

I for one have shopped at Lilly Pulitzer here in Boca at Town Center Mall during one of their shop and share events.

The brand partners up with local non-profits frequently! For example, Lilly Pulitzer was a corporate sponsor of the 2022 Kips Bay Show House Palm Beach which supports Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County and Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.

Now y’all know I love to thrift and buy via consignment online and here locally! I have scored amazing Lilly Pulitzer accessories, dresses, skorts, and more via Poshmark! Was thrilled to discover that
