When 21-year-old Lilly eloped with Peter Pulitzer, they escaped the hustle and bustle of New York City for the sun and sand of Palm Beach. In the shadow of Peter's citrus grove, Lilly opened a juice stand. To disguise the juice stains on her clothing, she had a sleeveless dress made from colorfully-printed cotton. Lilly Pulitzer, the clothing label, was born. The "classic shift dress" shot to international fame and demand when Lilly's old schoolmate Jacqueline Kennedy née Bouvier, now the First Lady, was photographed wearing a "Lilly" while on vacation. "Jackie wore one of my dresses – it was made from kitchen curtain material – and people went crazy. They took off like zingo. Everybody loved them, and I went into the dress business." Today, we know Lilly Pulitzer for her classic and creative prints, evocative of beaches in the summertime and lazy days in our favorite resorts. From beautiful dresses, tops, and bottoms to tumblers, coolers, koozies, wine totes, and a million other accessories, Lilly Pulitzer is the name among names for preppy women's fashion.
