Lilly Pulitzer's 80th Birthday Party - Inside Scoop!

Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau celebrates her 80th birthday today!  Although she'll be enjoying her birthday at home today, she'll be celebrating in style on Saturday.  I'm beyond excited that I am going to attend the Preppy American Brunch with two of my BFF's to honor Lilly's birthday. The event will be held at the Museum of Lifestyle and Fashion History and tickets are still available. 

The guest of honor will be at the brunch to meet and mingle with the guests.  My friend Charity and I joked that if we manage to get our picture taken with Lilly, we can use that photo on our Christmas cards.  Ha!  I'm also eager to see the For the Love of Lilly exhibit that has "nearly 80 vintage Lilly Pulitzer items for women, men and children; fabrics, accessories; a limited edition Lilly juice carton and animal crackers; galoshes, cocktail trays and napkins."

Many special surprises are planned for the brunch including wonderful silent auction items and swag bags. I have some fabulous inside scoop to share with you about some of these special items.  Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on preppy items made with vintage Lilly Pulitzer fabric including headbands from Looking4Lilly and an apron from Lynn Whelan Design.  Glassware from DL Design is also part of the silent auction.  You can also bid on a commemorative birthday plate from the event.  

The swag bags sound beyond amazing!  Party guests will receive a bracelet from Kiel James Patrick

There's also a chocolate palm tree from Lilly lover Christina of Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate in the favor bag. 

The rest of the goodies are a top secret until Saturday.  I'm counting the hours until this exciting event!  If you're attending the party on Saturday, please let me know!  I'd love to say hello!
