The Honda Classic

Spring has arrived and so has the Honda Classic. This event was yet another perk to living in Palm Beach. I couldn’t wait to make a trip to the tournament and enjoy the sunny Saturday.

The tournament started out with a sweet stranger giving me her ticket upon arrival. After that our first stop was for champagne, naturally. We marveled at the Moet tower and stopped for a photo op.

We poured a to-go glass and went to watch the tournament. On our way down the path, a ball brushed over our heads and landed by our feet. We watched as the crowds and cameras gathered around us. Our group  instantly had a front row seat for a final round! I must say this is the only golf we watched, but boy was it exciting.

Soon, my sister and I were sidetracked by none other than the Lilly Pulitzer lounge. You could say it was quite the ‘par-tee!’ They served signature cocktails out of printed tumblers, while you shopped the latest collection of golf gear. We had a blast meeting fellow blogger, “Amy Believes in Pink,” and playing in the photo booth.

Looking back, I was sad to see the tournament come to an end, but I was happy to head back to the resort for the fireworks. The finale wouldn’t be complete without an after party and hotel suite. What a great way to end a  great day here in PGA!

Falling in Love with Lilly

February is one of the best times of the year because we are surrounded with flowers, love and of course Lilly! For Valentines week we rolled out our latest line. The collection featured some of my favorite things: pink, flamingos and pearls!

Celebrating the day of love in the place you love is certainly ideal. The Breakers was beautifully decorated with roses and the courtyard was glowing outside of the store. I found the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit just in time for date night.

I even accessorized with the new hot tropics Mckim sandals to pull in the pink. To top it off, my friend created a  fabulous flower display for the special day. What better way to celebrate than V-day than with your best babes?

Brunch at the Breakers

I tend to say ‘it’s always sunny and 75 in my head.’ I close my eyes and dream of the beach, but when I open them, I am stepping out of the plane in Palm Beach! My sister just landed a job there, so of course I was on my way before she could say when. The weekend was a special celebration of her new job, little sister’s graduation, my promotion to manager, Father’s Day and my mother’s birthday. It was the perfect excuse to bring my fab fam back together.

We shopped for hours at the best boutiques, and we hit the town to dance the night away at a Dierks Bentley concert. There were many memorable moments but the one I will never forget would have to be brunch at the Breakers. We drove through the gates, passing the palm trees on the promenade. We pulled up to lambos lining the valet. Walking into the lobby, I was in awe of the grand design of this luxury resort. I couldn’t wait to peek out into out to the Palm Courtyard.

Checking this location off my list, I must say, made me a bit emotional. I have always dreamed of being at the Breakers, and walking through the square and  into the mecca: Lilly Pulitzer.

The store was everything I envisioned, full of fabulous fashions and sprinkled in shells. The dressing rooms were my favorite part, each with their own personality. I left the shop with the signature palm beach breakers tote, what a treat!

Just when you think it couldn’t get any better, we were off to a mimosa brunch at The Circle. We made our way into the grand dining room, and couldn’t wait to sip champagne beneath the crystal chandeliers. We tasted fabulous treats as we were serenaded by harp hymns. What a perfect ending to a posh trip to Palm Beach!

Life Under the Printed Palms

The only thing that could get me off the beach, is if I’m headed to another. Last week I left the Carolina coast and made my way down south to the sandy shores of Naples Florida. I couldn’t wait to drop my bags in the suite and hit the beach!

My first full day I hit the pool to soak up some sun. I met some fab Lilly ladies in the loungers, and some handsome fellas in the hot tub. What could make this day better? Only a few frozen drinks to sip under the sunshine.

Once the rest of the buy trip babes trickled in, it was time to get back to business. We had breakfast bright and early at Broadwell’s, overlooking the golf course. After that we were off to the Imoklee room to view the exclusive Lilly Pulitzer Resort 2017  collection. We were in awe of all the fabulous winter fashions and fabrics and couldn’t wait to shop for our store.

That night we put down the line sheets and picked up the champagne. I met my besties at the open bar and buffet and hit the terrace to see the sunset. It was a perfect photo-op beneath the palms. We made our way to the beach bar and watched the band jam before we hit the bed.

On our last day of paradise, we finalized our orders and hit the sand for one last break before our flight. I had the best time catching rays and catching up with up with friends.

This must be why they call this the Lilly dream job. What better way to work and play than on vacay? Follow along for more of this life under the printed palms…
