We all know that Spring is the season for love, but I believe that NOW is the perfect time to “Fall” in love again… with fashion!
You remember the springtime right? Vibrant colors all around us; the fragrance of blooming flowers in the air; bright and colorful tones that paint the landscape as if they were plucked from an Andy Warhol dream. *Gasp* And who can forget about the Spring fashion with its bold prints and floral accents… Yep, springtime just oozes of all things beautiful and lively. And although Summer is coming to a close and we are just a few short weeks from the start of the Fall season, I’m still longing for the allure of a season gone by.
So what’s a fashionista to do to curb her fashion fix?
Well, Lilly Pulitzer has certainly tickled my fancy for fashion this season. Located inside Phipps Plaza in Buckhead, Lilly Pulitzer embodies charm, fun, happiness, and an overall joie de vivre. With a colorful collection of gorgeous girlie goodies that would make a tulip blush with envy, Lilly Pulitzer is nothing short of the quintessential fashionistas’ playground. Lilly’s nautically whimsical and resort-inspired pieces hint at casual chic and offer a much needed getaway from the seasons’ typical offerings.
Upon entering the shop I was overwhelmed with the feeling of having just entered into a lush garden filled with posies, begonias, and hibiscus, as lovely and colorful floral print garments and accessories adorned the room like blooming flowers. The ambiance is very bright and lively and just begs for a closer look. Lilly Pulitzer carries a variety of styles that appeal to fashion tastes of every kind, and their prices are comfortably within most shopping budgets. Their fashion lineup includes wonderful dresses (party and daytime), cute sweaters & blazers, stylish tunics, tops, bottoms, belts, shoes, handbags, colorful scarves, jewelry & accessories, and get this… they also carry a collection of sorority-inspired print accessories too. I’ll pledge to that!
In addition to their signature floral-print wear and accessories, Lilly Pulitzer also carries great gift ideas such as iPhone cases, wine glasses, tumblers, stationary, and their uber-popular agendas; the latter of which I scored during my visit along with a cute floral-print sleeve for my iPad. (yay-me!) I absolutely LOVE Lilly, and can’t say enough about this wonderful store! I left so overcome with joy that I went on a random hugging spree throughout the mall. (smile)
So be sure to stop by Phipps Plaza to get you fashion fix this season, and see why Lilly Pulitzer is giving new meaning to “Lilly’s in the Springtime Fall.” Oh, and don’t be surprised if you feel a sudden overwhelming urge to hug someone afterwards. (wink)
