Lilly Pulitzer Does Bridal Her Way
It all started with a juice stand in Palm Beach 50 years ago. Lilly, a young New York socialite, had just eloped with Peter Pulitzer and settled in Palm Beach. Looking for a fun hobby, Lilly decided to open a juice stand featuring local citrus. Her business was a hit, but all the squeezing made a mess of her clothes, so Lilly designed a dress to camouflage the stains. The result: a comfortable sleeveless shift made of bright, colorful printed cotton in pink, green, yellow and orange – the Classic Shift. That started the successful business we all know today and, more recently, the launch of their bridal line . Here are our favorite pieces for 2011. For more information contact Designerbrideinc.com.
