Lilly Pulitzer is an irrefutable part of any summer wardrobe, but why not make it an irrefutable part of any summer lifestyle, as well? The lively prints, recognizable anywhere, effortlessly emit vibes of white sand beaches, luscious flower arrangements and vibrant cocktails. Wouldn’t a vacation full of these things be ideal? We decided to let the engaging Lilly prints at Memphis’ The Pink Door inspire our summer calendar. Here are our favorites:

Red Right Return

When reality hits and nautical paradise feels like just another day watching your kids at the pool, allow Red Right Return to be the lifeboat that rescues you. With whimsical sailboats floating on a lively background of blues, this pattern inspires colorful tranquility in any setting, transforming red lights in afternoon traffic into red buoys in the open water. At The Pink Door, you’ll find Red Right Return patterns on everything from dresses to totes, as modeled by our friends at The Pink Door:

Seaesta is one of Lilly’s newest summer patterns. It’s a salute to the perfect grapefruit cocktail, preferably sipped poolside with a stamped passport in one hand and a wide-brimmed sun hat in the other. Naturally evoking an air of fiestas at sunset, Seaesta is the perfect pattern to flaunt, even if that passport reads more like a grocery list and the beachside cocktail tastes more like lemonade on the front porch.

The inspiring Seaesta pattern from Lill: Seaesta is available in shorts, tops, dresses, skirts and more at The Pink Door.

First Impression

Summer dinner parties will always be in style, but Lilly’s newly updated First Impression pattern is an easy way to inspire a fresh twist on an old classic. Imagine fresh bouquets of yellow peonies on a bright blue tablecloth, or Grandma’s lemon icebox pie sitting atop green-rimmed plates. A summer dinner party, luncheon or picnic inspired by First Impression is bound to transport guests to a world that is perpetually sunny.

First Impression by Lilly is available in clothing as well as accessories such as phone cases in multiple color schemes.
