Beach Bash

The invitations have been sent, time to start shopping for what to wear! We can't wait to see everyone's "Lilly or louder" outfits next week!

Wonderful Winter Windows

With the snow falling out on the CityPlace plaza, we wanted to give our store a splash of holiday fun too! Kathie and Alison were up to the task and headed over last week to turn the store into a winter wonderland.

Hand painted windows greet visitors along Rosemary Ave.

A handpainted wreath is on the door to welcome all

And a handpainted snowman is all dressed for the season with pink and green mittens, scarf, and hat

Be sure to stop by to see the windows and pop in for visit! Vita and Neil can help you find the perfect gift for anyone on your list- and with all of the great deals, there is no reason not to put a little something under the tree for yourself too!

Snowflakes are falling...

Swing by now through December 31st to see snow falling in the plaza at 6:30 and 7:30, plus an additional 8:30 show on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

A Walden for Rosarian

When the 6th grade class at Rosarian Academy needed an item to auction off at their annual fundraiser, we knew just who to turn to- our friends at Walden Surfboards! Steve Walden personally crafted and signed the board featuring the Rosarian logo and school mascot. We love how it turned out, and so did the auction attendees! Big thank yous to Steve and Brandi at Walden, and Mark at Ocean Magic surf shop in Jupiter- who was nice enough to led us a stand so we could properly display the board. The three of you helped make the 6th graders the hit of the night!

Sideline Sighting

We just had to share this great photo we were sent from the Dolphins vs. Jets game! Fitz Ollison, a long time Lilly Lover and the Director of Communications for the Dolphins, brought a little Palm Beach/South Florida style to New York this weekend. We are sure it was that extra dose of hometown spirit that helped boost the Dolphins to victory. We can't wait to watch the next Dolphins game to see what Fitz will be wearing next!


YES...... Today the first delivery of Lilly Pulitzer Resort 2009 landed in our stores. All 120 boxes. Affectionately named " The Vintage Collection" it carries us down Pink and Green memory lane to yesteryear Lilly true Palm Beach style.

BLAST from the PAST

Our dear friend sent us this picture of a classic "Lilly" wedding from the original go-around circa 1970. Thank you Sarah and Thank God fashion comes full circle.

Summer Lovin

The sisters three drove just down the road to Miami's Raleigh Hotel on famed Collins Avenue to be with Amy Smilovic, owner and designer of Tibi. There, we were privy to front and center seats watching the most beautiful models clad in the most beautiful printed and solid swimwear in town. Our favorite....the pink and green print of course. All swimwear is available Spring 2010 and will be featured on our website:

Kaitlyn's Colorful Cast

When one of our favorite little Lilly Lovers broke her wrist recently, we just had to do something! With a little wrapping paper and the help of Kaitlyn's dad, Dr. David Friedman at the Cleveland Clinic, a one of a kind cast was created. According to Kaitlyn's mom, Sherry, the Lilly print brought a big smile to Kaitlyn's face- proving that even with a broken wrist, you can never have a bad day in Lilly!

Hang Ten...

with Walden Surfboards, Lilly Pulitzer, and C.ORRICO

We had a visit from the "Father of the Modern Longboard" himself, Steve Walden, on Friday. As the icon behind Walden Surfboards, Steve shaped his first surfboard at the age of 13 and estimates that, to date, he has personally shaped more than 20,000 boards. Our favorite is this Lilly Pulitzer beauty in the Multi Juice Stand print complete with pink glitter bottom!

Here She Is...

Miss America 1995, Heather Whitestone McCallun, stopped by our Palm Beach store today. She and her husband perused the racks of our Summer Sale and she snapped up this little $89 goodie along with a few other Lilly items. Proof positive that C.ORRICO is fit for a queen!

Wedding Bliss

So the cutest couple was shopping in the store for their honeymoon outfits. The wedding was in a couple of weeks and the groom wanted to wear his first Lilly blazer. They were telling us there story of how they met and where they were getting married.....and then magic. Lilly Pulitzer walked into the store. We hoped you liked your wedding gift of meeting Lilly and may you have many happy years and tons of kids! Please name one Lilly even if its a boy!

Hi Ladies,
I'm not sure if you remember us, but my husband Garrett and I were in your store about a week and a half ago. We were on our honeymoon and had the thrill of meeting Lilly Pulitzer in person! We had such a great time and picked up a few things to remember our trip! I wanted to share this photo with you. Garrett is wearing my grandfather's original Lilly pants from the mid 1960s with his brand new sport coat that he bought at your store that day!
Thanks for making such great memories! We look forward to visiting you again soon.

50 Years of Lilly!

Today's the day! The Lilly Jubilee Retrospective is in Palm Beach and we are celbrating C.ORRICO style- hot dogs, margaritas, games, prizes, print artists painting, and lots of vintage Lillys!


We were asked to be part of a wonderful charity event benefiting WXEL, our local public broadcasting service, at Mar A Lago. Woman with Wings and Wisdom. C. Orrico presented a fashion show of Lilly Pulitzer Spring 2009. The guest speaker was Suze Orman...clearly a woman with wisdom, I did not see wings, but I am sure she has a set. The theme of the event was Lilly Pulitzer, 50 years of a colorful life. Lilly was our guest. She definitely has wings. Wisdom goes wihout saying.

Suze was uplifting and empowering. She paid tribute to Lilly herself with a personal story. It brought the audience to a teary eyed standing ovation. It was a story of Suze being down and out. No money,credit cards to the hilt, no job. She said she was at the low of lows. A friend had invited her to Palm Beach and with an invite to Lilly's for dinner. Suze said she could not believe they were eating at the infamous Lilly Pulitzers house. Sheepishly Suze went. When she arrived at the house Lilly treated her as if she knew Suze her whole life. She made Suze feel like an amazing individual who was the most important person to Lilly herself. Then Suze realized she made everyone in the room feel this way. What a wonderful woman. No matter a dignitarie or a car detailer....Lilly treats all as equal.
