Panda-mania!

Good morning blog friends! Thanks for following me and my pink and green adventures. Lately, I've been thinking so much about Tai Shan, the panda at the National Zoo.



We've watched Tai Shan grow up from when he was born and was the size of a stick of butter, to the little cub, to the 4 year old "adolescent" that he is now. It's been a great experience. His whole life has been chronicled by the now famous Panda Cam and he is a zoo celebrity. No trip to the zoo is complete without a trip to see him. They're even going to make a Tai Shan stamp.

Now, he's going back to China in January or February of 2010 and I'm going to miss the little guy.

Pandas are an endangered species, due to loss of habitat and a low birthrate. Conservation efforts from the past few years seem to be improving the situation, but this amazing animal is still at risk.

When I went to the Pink Palace after winning a contest on facebook, I had the opportunity to see some sneak peeks at upcoming prints and I've heard that there will be a panda print in the near future! Here's a picture from WWD.

Many Lilly Pulitzer prints feature animals and this spring will bring some special surprises and a partnership with (WWF) World Wildlife Fund.

I'm going to miss Tai Shan, but at least I can remember him when I wear the Lilly Pulitzer panda shift from spring. For now, both will be at the top of my list.
