The Pink Palace

After the Warehouse Sale we went to the Lilly Pulitzer headquarters (also known as the Pink Palace) for a tour...yes the building is a very light pink.

I thought my green and pink Gucci mocs were the perfect shoe for such an occasion.

The lobby walls are lined with framed Lilly fabric. I never knew Lilly made a Mickey Mouse print or...

a Streaker print.

The decor and airiness of the building create such a cheerful atmosphere. It would be virtually impossible not to be happy if you worked there. The first stop on the tour was the distribution center.

Next we headed to the common area and then the design room. I got to see the prints they were working on for Resort 2011 and all of the mesmerizing inspiration boards.

We walked through a hallway that was lined with collages depicting the history of the brand. This photo of Lilly and her husband was my favorite image. Before the tour was over we saw the samples for Summer 2011. It was so exciting to get a preview of whats to come this Summer. I hope a certain tunic makes the production cut.

Special thanks to Jack for such an amazing opportunity and for the tote filled with Lilly goodies. Visiting the Pink Palace was a dream come true and an unbelievable inspiring experience! xx

What lucky girls y'all are! Thank you for the photo tour. I especially liked the common area. What a bright space to sit and enjoy tea with co-workers.

I'm trying so very hard not to be green with envy! What a fabulous trip, and you and your sister dressed perfectly for the occasion--those mocs are amazing! I'd love to have the throw/bedspread and all of the pillows in a sunroom or guest room. What a fun trip. :)
