Earlier this spring, when Lilly Pulitzer collaborated with LeSportsac, I rushed to buy the mini umbrella. It is, well, pretty mini in size. Initially, I was thrilled to have an umbrella in a Lilly print and loved the small size. It fits perfectly in any bag. The cute umbrella served it's purpose quite well.
But then I saw the newest umbrellas from Lilly Pulitzer and I had a change of opinion. These umbrellas that are part of the fall stationery and accessories line, are much higher in quality than the LeSportsac umbrella. Immediately, I noticed that the umbrella seems much more sturdy and is larger in size. It can still fit easily in my bag. The print options are more to my liking, too. I finally decided on the Checking In print although White Zin is also one of my favorites.
The price points of the two umbrellas are so similar that unless you need a micro small umbrella, I'd suggest the newest umbrella in Checking In or White Zin. A stronger umbrella can save you on a windy and rainy day!
Have you seen both of these umbrellas? Which one do you prefer?
