I grew up in Fairfield County, Connecticut. If it’s not the preppiest place on earth, it’s pretty close. And in case that wasn’t enough, I went to a private school where wearing a blazer was required. I thought that wearing pink pants and pants with little animals on them was totally normal. Working for Orvis in Vermont for a few summers only reinforced that feeling (and gave me a sweet discount on buying more of said merchandise). It wasn’t until I moved to Chicago that I started to tone it down a bit (I still don’t own a pair of jeans though). But what if you wanted to go the opposite direction? What if you moved from Chicago to Connecticut and wanted to fit in? You’d have to shop at Lilly Pulitzer. They are a King of Prussia, PA based fashion brand and retailer (with dozens of locations across the country) that is known for its over the top, colorful prints.
The story behind the Lilly Pulitzer is really cool. Lilly, the person, got married and moved to Palm Beach, FL. She opened a juice stand because her new husband owned citrus groves. As a result Lilly ended each day covered in juice stains. She found a crazy, colorful print and had a dress made out of it to hide the stains. The business quickly transitioned towards selling dresses instead of selling juice. The brand really took off when Jackie O. was seen wearing a Lilly on vacation. The entire business was shut down in 1984, but was revived in 1993. Today the brand seems to be going strong.. If you’d like to help them dress even more people in Lilly, take a look at the company’s Careers page. There are a ton of retail opportunities in a variety of locations, and there are also corporate positions including:
Just make sure you like bright colors.
