One year when my girls were in elementary school, they had to bring in 100 pieces of something to celebrate the 100th day of school. Both girls immediately suggested that they bring 100 Lilly hang tags to school with them. I can only imagine what their teacher thought! And luckily for my girls, I had 100 of the older white Lilly Pulitzer tags with the palm tree logo as well as 100 of the newer pink and green tags.
In addition to the hang tags, I also save Lilly Pulitzer catalogs from season to season. They're great resources for print and style names. Whenever I want to remember the name of a print or find out when a particular item was sold, I simply consult the catalog.
The catalog photography is gorgeous and provides so much inspiration. I have the Kiera dress pictured on the cover of the catalog and love the background wall of peonies behind the model. The gorgeous white against the pink flowers inspired an idea for my wedding!
My favorite catalogs are from the 50th Year Jubilee celebration. I particularly love the Retrospective book with vintage photos and stories about Lilly Pulitzer. Here's one of my favorite pictures of Lilly in her original Palm Beach shop.
Do you save the hang tags from your clothing? Do you organize your wardrobe on a spreadsheet? Please tell me I'm not the only one with this borderline obsession.
