Lilly Pulitzer Spring 2014

Massachusetts is currently getting another snow storm...yay for another five to eight inches. While I am waiting to be called off from work and pulling out my tall L.L. Bean Maine Hunting boots, I decided to browse through the Spring 2014 collection for Lilly Pulitzer. For the past two years, I have been slightly disappointed the majority of what Lilly Pulitzer had to offer. Being a huge fan of the old style shift, I have been rummaging through eBay and Re-Lilly on Facebook for any of the shifts made from 2000-2010 and the Lilly Originals Collection (Anyone have the Lilly Originals Worth or Bel Air shift in Stuffed Shells size 8 they are willing to sell me?? I'll pay top dollar.) My personal collection from that time period is almost complete with a few favorites from the past three years that are not too revealing or too bright. Lilly is supposed to be bright, but I am not supposed to worry about the hemline being too short, which has been shortening in the last few years.

When I went home to Louisville for Christmas, I stopped by my trusted Lilly store, the Peppermint Palm, and immediately asked for the "Book", which contains the next season's collection. The new store girl who I did not recognize knew what I was talking about as I have a loyal customer of The Peppermint Palm since high school. As I was flipping through the Book, I was pleasantly surprised that Lilly Pulitzer is finally heading back towards the basics, such as their classic prints and dress styles. Although I am not a huge fan of the Delia style (I was the designer would rise the dip in the back.), I am dying over the Bright Navy Fountain Hopping print in general.

Here are a few of my favorites and hope that Lilly puts out many more similar classic styles:

What are your favorite pieces from the Lilly Spring 2014 collection?

  1. I like all the styles but I am still worried that the hemlines will be too short. There aren't any new shift styles that are as long as the old worth shifts. Except for the Janice but that is low cut in the front.
