It is an especially fun Wednesday for TP, we are ever-so-excited to be guest posting here at Maryland Pink and Green! We have long enjoyed reading Bethany’s wonderful posts, and are flattered to be invited to pop in for a visit. Just sharing space with such a Lilly aficionado is impressive; let alone a woman who has actually visited the Offray Ribbon outlet!
Back to the topic at hand, Bethany asked if we could chat about some of the new goodies coming to The Princess in this fall’s Lilly Pulitzer Fall Stationery & Gifts line. (We only pray that poor Bethany isn’t already regretting her kind invitation, asking us to talk about something this near and dear is really courting disaster.)
We will begin with what is the ‘hottest’ item in the new collection, the Lilly iPhone covers.
Pre-orders for these are coming in at a record rate. They are offered in four distinctive Lilly patterns: Checking In, Koi, White Zin and Coral Me Crazy. Below we have another shot of Coral Me Crazy.
The Lilly iPhone cases are $19.50; they may be pre-ordered with shipping expected in mid to late August. (The cases for the this fall’s collection fit only the 3G and 3GS models; we do know the plan is to add cases for the iPhone 4 next spring, but at this point there aren’t plans for Blackberry and Palm covers.)
The next most popular item is most assuredly the Large Agendas, with the Pocket Agendas running a close second. The big change for Agendas this year is the switch to a 17-month format, sometimes called an academic calendar. The Agendas begin with this August and run through December 2011; new patterns include (L to R) Checking In, Koi, and White Zin.
The most sought-after pattern for these is White Zin, with Checking In ordered almost as often. Koi is not as popular as these two right now, but we expect that to change and this darker color to become more popular with the arrival of fall and even winter. Recognizing how much people need to see the inside of the Agendas, we have posted photos on our PreppyPrincess.com Facebook page. The Large Agendas are $24.50 and the Pocket Agendas just $14.50; these are shipping now.
After the iPhone covers the most searched item has to be these:
If your guess is “Lilly Pulitzer Laptop Sleeves” you are absolutely correct. These look so fun, available in the Checking In and Patch Day designs. The cases are made of neoprene, and fit laptops with screens up to 15.4”. These are $36.50 and may also be pre-ordered for a mid to late August delivery.
Something we haven’t yet posted about on our blog, the new Lilly Pulitzer Pens.
These were just added to the site on Monday; here is how The Consort describes them:
“Whether signing autographs or writing a note to your sweetie, these pens are sure to impress in both style and quality. Removable lid, includes one ink cartridge and accepts standard refills. Each pen comes in a colorful gift box... there are three new designs to add to the twelve classic colorful patterns you know and love.”
The pens are $19.50 with new patterns available for pre-ordering, all other patterns ship immediately.
Another item we haven’t yet put on the site or featured in our blog, the new Lilly Pulitzer Paper Dolls set.
The clothes for the new dolls are cute as can be, quintessentially Lilly.
Perfect for the Minnie Lilly lover on your gift list this year, the Paper Dolls come in an illustrated box with a grosgrain ribbon handle ideal for easy transporting.
Our final item is something that rapidly achieved “Hot Seller” status among the Lilly pre-order products.
At only $5, the Lilly Koozies are offered in three great patterns: Checking In, Patch Day and our personal pick, Frisky Business. Isn’t that the best name? Destined to be great gifts any time, the Koozies are ideal as stocking-stuffers and other gifting occasions.
Here are the particulars on the Lilly Fall Stationery Collection:
