Me + Lilly Pulitzer + Fundraiser = Bad News for Bank Account





This evening, I'm attending an after-hours shopping/fundraising event at our local Lilly Pulitzer retailer, The Peppermint Palm. How much more dangerous could this get? Me surrounded by LP merchandise, offered at a discount (only 15 percent, but still!), with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Junior League? I need to be strong and not go hog wild in there, but when it's Lilly, it's hard not to!

My daughter's birthday is next week, so I'm hoping I can find a little something for her, as well as for Mommy. All within reason, of course. Who am I kidding? All reason goes out the window when shopping for Lilly! The gorgeous prints, cute dresses, darling shoes - it's madness, I tell you! Madness!

Okay, I got that out of my system. I promise, I will show some decorum at this evening's event and shop appropriately. ;)

What are you favorite Lilly looks this season? Any outfit in particular that you're mad about? A must-have shift, cardigan or skirt? Do tell!

Have fun this evening! I love Lilly dresses. The skirts don't do it for me, but the dresses and tops always make me feel super feminine and happy.

Good luck tonight! I don't know if I would be so strong when faced with a bunch of Lilly with a discounted price!

Good hunting, dear lady.

Oh lovely! Make sure you buy buy buy. Finding nice things takes more time than making the money to pay for them.

I don't know if you saw my post about TJMaxx carrying Lilly Pulitzer, but I am going to keep my eyes peeled. I was thrilled to see some dresses there. Have a great weekend! You totally deserve a new outfit!
