You will notice that I mention Lilly Pulitzer quite often in my post. I do love Lilly, it makes me happy, but I hate to say it but Lilly is not very popular in this part of CA. There are 7 (count them) 7 Lilly stores in the gigantic state of CA. Sure there are small enclaves of Lilly lovers but on the whole, not so much.
I will occasionally see a young girl in Lilly but that is about it. I remember wearing a very cute Lilly outfit to my daughters school orientation and you would have thought I wore a Bozo the Clown (with the nose)
So, I resign myself to loving Lilly in my own way, which is wearing my Lilly pj's, drinking out of my Lilly coffee mug, writing notes using my Lilly pen or pencils on my Lilly writing paper, relaxing in my Lilly guest room and writing about Lilly on my blog.
(Well, ok, so I do dress my baby in Lilly and her name is Lilly(after my grandmother)and this summer I will be happily riding my new Lilly cruiser while wearing my Lilly sunglasses, so I guess I can't complain )
