Lights, Camera, Lilly: Fall 2011 Collection

Happy Tuesday! This is an exciting week because the Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2011 will/should be available online or in your favorite store. July 25 was set as the first shipment date of the newest collection. Yeah! 


Before we begin - there are two things you need to know! First - the Fall Lilly collection is "usually" my least favorite. Most of you know - I'm a Summer/Resort girl at heart and the change of seasons generally makes me cranky with limited beach, sunbathing and boating days. Second - please forgive the awful quality of the pictures I am sharing with you, I was unable to install the software of my dinosaur scanner to my new laptop. You know what this means, right? I need to go shopping for a new wireless printer/scanner combo...I digress. Let's talk about the new Fall Lilly Pulitzer collection! :-) 


Many of my favorite styles are back in fun new prints, such as the Adalie Wrap Dress in Skye Blue Thrill of the Chaise, $158.


Looks like I'll be adding more Clare Dresses to my collection - love this one in Bright Navy Dress Rehearsal, $258. This print is perfect for those early Fall days when you still want color in your wardrobe - with a beautiful shade of pink in the floral design. 


The Christy Shirt Dress is a new style for Fall - love it in the Cameo White Thrill of the Chaise print, $168. The shirt dress screams "Fall" to me and looks great over leggings or jeans when it gets really cold! 


Another style that will more than likely make it's debut in my wardrobe this season - the Joanie Dress in Bright Navy Behind the Rope, $168. Love the 3/4 sleeves as it doesn't really get cold here until December. This appears to be a very versatile piece and great for our climate. 


The Jonah Dress is back! I love my Jonahs and am so happy to see this style return - however I wish Lilly had done this print in a different colorway. It is very similar to the Jonah dress in Crane Pose from Fall 2010...but I'm sure I'll still buy it! Jonah in Brazilian Brown Big Heel Yeah Jacquard, $168. 


It wouldn't be Fall without at least one new Blayney Dress - and this is my pick for 2011. Starry Blue Little Less of a Drama Queen, $268. Love the hilarious print name, love the bright colors on a blue background. 


Every girl needs at least one new party dress - my pick is Fiona in Bright Navy Heel Yeah Jacquard, $188. 


Get used to hearing me talk about Clara Tunics for the next few months! I'm a self confessed "tunic addict" and quite frankly, the past few seasons Lilly has really disappointed me with the tunic selection. From what I can tell, the Clara Tunic will be available in several different prints this Fall. I'm crazy about the  Multi Chorus Girl print. Priced at only $128, what's not to love? 


Go ahead and put me down for the Clara Tunic in Black Late Night Toile, $128. 
I'll also need at least one dress in the Toile print - my first choice would be Dominica, $188. Shopaholic prediction - the Black Late Night Toile print will be a huge success and more than likely a sellout. I wouldn't wait to get anything in this print...as you know, it's very rare that Lilly does a black and white combo. Plan accordingly. :-) 


The Lilly Pulitzer bracelets are always a fun and easy way to juice up your ensemble, and this season they've outdone themselves! The In A Knot Bangle, $68, comes in Multi or True Navy and will probably match everything in our closets. The Tusk Tusk Cuff, $48 in Gold Metallic Elephant is a big "duh" for my wish list - won't it be pretty at my Alabama games?  


Lastly, I am going to "need" the Bow Tie Clutch, $128, in Gold Metallic Elephant. I love gold and metallic bags or clutches because they go with everything and provide a wonderful alternative to the "matchy-matchy" look.
What are your Fall collection favorites? Doesn't it seem strange to be thinking about Fall apparel when it's 95 degrees outside? Reality is that I won't be able to wear most of this until at least October - maybe November or December. Thankfully it's all so beautiful, it should take some of the "pain" out of the season and weather change for me. 


Have a Terrific Tuesday! 


p.s. If you're wondering where to order your Fall Lilly Pulitzer goodies - I recommend Village Palm (Facebook page HERE, website HERE), The Pink Pelican (Facebook page HERE, website HERE) and the Lilly Pulitzer corporate retail stores. I love buying from the Village Palm and Pink Pelican - both are smaller, female owned Via shoppes. My favorite corporate store is Southlake, TX (Facebook page HERE) where Amy and her team always take great care of me!
