Then tragically our second Mom passed in April 2013. Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau left quite a trail.... pink,green,orange and turquoise all mashed together into floral and animal printed frocks and fabrics. There are no words to say thank you except the actual simple two words themselves. Thank You Lil. The trilogy was completed when our father passed in September, the 16th as well. He was our rock and our sounding board. We still ask him "what to do" and wait for him to answer us in our dreams. And he does every time.
Forward to present day, we still have our beloved and semi-famous stores: Palm Beach,Naples,Delray Beach,Jupiter,City Place and Hobe Sound Florida. We added a little country in our lives and opened a store in Highlands North Carolina. Skeptical at first, I took my family north-west and to our surprise, We fell in love. Our third summer,this year proved a new store in a nearby town,Cashiers. It is opening by Aug 10,2014. Will there be a third in North Carolina? Don't things happen in threes. Trilogies do happen.
Spring 2011 was presented to us and I have several things to say.
The Whittaker will be here in January 2011 in two prints for $258.00.
The next section is dedicated to virgins....just kidding. The White Dress presentation is breathtaking. Very soft,lacy, and pure. Very Uma meets Pfeiffer. Dresses with a strap have a two finger rule, which all of us Moms know is great for graduation or religious events. We are excited about all 12 dresses in this group.
This is the Reeve Dress at $368.00 in our door February 10, 2011.
Not to give it all away at once we will tickle you with a little at
My fifteen minutes or rather 15 seconds of fame. Our local news covered a story about the towns budget and cutting our Ocean Rescue....yes Lifeguards. I sat through the entire meeting in great hopes this would not happen. Well, it did not!
We stayed at Le Parker Meridien ,which houses the famous "Norma's" restaurant. Incredible food and a must do for breakfast. I will try to julienne veggies for my egg white omelets. Amazing how the ordinary veggie omelet became a work of art by just changing the texture and shape of an ingredient. Huh? Food for thought... yeah yeah no pun intended. oh and do not get the $1000.00 caviar omelet, but if you do can I have a taste?
Off to the shows for our November/December buy. Milly's theme : Jackie O goes sailing. Very fresh bright yellow, true navy, cornflower blue all with bright whites + sailboats of course.
We had two Facebook pages.
One for a group and one for local business.
We have kept the local business page because after all we are locally global.....not an oxymoron in the least.
We started a great campaign too!
With every 50 new members a random follower will be selected to recieve a $125.00 C. ORRICO Gift Certificate! So far we have selected 3 winners!
