The lovely Lily  Pulitzer known best for her tropical prints started her clothing line by accident. Lily  and new husband Peter Pulitzer left the hustle and bustel of Manhattan and moved to Palm Beach. In the shadow of Peter’s citrus groves Lily decided to open a juice stand and to disguise the juice stains on her dress had a shift made in colorful prints. 

Fast forward to schoolmate Jackie Kennedy wearing a white Lily dress on vacation (which P.S. by the way were made from a pair of kitchen curtains)and being photographed in one- Pulitzer shift dresses were born. All these years later Lily Pulitzer, is know for her  brightly colored and exuberant prints that are found on everything from apparel to party wear.  Lily we will miss you . You made the world so much brighter with all your pretty prints.
