Lilly Pulitzer, Madison Avenue

When we were in NYC I decided to check out the Lilly Pulitzer store on Madison Avenue for a little birthday shopping while JCW hunted down pimento cheese sandwiches at Hill Country Chicken.

The store was a renovated town-house from 1912, complete with a pink staircase.

 

The staircase was lined with framed Lilly fabrics.



Of course I loved all of the blue and white porcelain pieces throughout the store.


There were inspiration boards used as decor that were very similar to the ones I saw when I toured the Pink Palace.


I couldn't get enough of the paintings on the walls and in the dressing rooms.

This dressing room told the story of how Lilly Pulitzer began.



...birthday finds


The store had so many special touches and was by far the most magnificent Lilly Pulitzer I have visited.

The Lilly sale really rocked the East Coast yesterday! I hope everyone was safe after yesterday's earthquake. Did you score any earth shaking deals from the Lilly sales?

Wow that store is awesome. Some of the decorations resemble the King of Prussia store too.

I just posted about my deals from yesterday!

Oh my gosh this is so precious, NEED to make a trip here! The closest Lilly retailer to me just closed so what a great excuse to :) Ordered a Murfee scarf from the sale yesterday but I'm hearing a lot of people found out later that the items they had purchased ended up being out of stock so I'm hoping I don't experience that too!

They didn't skimp on a single darn detail -- I love it! What a pretty store, and I love that curvy staircase.

Like the wall treatments of the store! Especially the tubes of paint motif...lots of fun, well done Lilly designers!

Nelle Somerville said...

I too love the paint tubes. What a clever and creative design. I need to pay more attention to the sales...and was rocked in my car. Thought the wheels were falling off. Where were you? xoxo

I am so out of the loop and so knee deep in house biz that I havent' even been. Bummer! Looks so pretty though and I will definitely have to come up for air and pay them a visit.

Oh my goodness, I'm so in love with this post. The walls are so cute and I love how they decorated everything in pink and green, but its not overwhelming. Love, love, love!

I haven't been in NYC since the Madison store opened and am going in a few weeks - it's going to be one of the first places I visit!

Love the pictures of the store! Glad you got some new Lilly! I love their shopping bags! I shopped the online sale and might go back for more :)

Miss Lindsay said...

I loveee the fitting rooms! Something fun around every corner in that store.
LOL @ the sale... you're so right. I actually showed *some* restraint for once in my life.

Ahhh, this blog post was heaven to my eyes! Love all your finds!

Tipsymadras said...

OMG! I just recently started blogging and my very first post was about the RIDICULOUS sale at the Lilly store on Madison in July. I was just there for the weekend and almost had a heart attack when I walked in to find such a super sale... Hope you found some good stuff!

JMW said...

I do love the special features of that Lilly store - very cute and inviting!

Isn't it perfection? I could very happily LIVE in this Lilly. XO
