Trivia Tuesday: Lovely in Lilly

Lilly Pulitzer’s colorful and iconic brand will forever be associated with our Palm Beach lifestyle. The bright tropical prints pair perfectly with island life. Do you know why Pulitzer designed her line of clothing in her signature bright patterns?


1) Upon request of friend, Jackie Kennedy

2) To disguise citrus stains on clothing

3) To join the flower power movement


Answer: If you chose #2, then you know your Palm Beach (or fashion) history! Lilly decided life would be much more fun in color. Rather than donning an apron to protect her clothing at her Palm Beach juice stand, she created a lifestyle brand. She began selling her now famous shift dresses at the stand in the 60’s. The rest is history!
