One of my timeless favorites: Splash of Pink, a Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store

I first discovered Lilly Pulitzer as a college sorority girl back home in Oklahoma. I was immediately taken with the amazing artistry of each print and the dazzling design of each piece. there was not a store within where you could buy Lilly, so finding a Lilly store that offered mail order was the next task for me. The very first Lilly store I came across was Splash of Pink, a Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store which at the time was "far away in Connecticut". Westport, CT to be exact.
Right away, I could tell this store was special. I remember the amazing customer service, the friendly staff I would deal with over the phone while ordering and the customer-oriented feel, and this was to a person living so many miles away from the actual store. I couldn't help but think if they were that friendly to a faraway customer, how wonderful they must be to customers who live in the area who visited the actual store location. Years have passed and this Oklahoma girl moved halfway across the country to New York, where Connecticut isn't so far away anymore. My love for Lilly has only grown over the years and I have never forgotten this store and their customer-driven service. It remains one of my favorites. I have always wanted to see the actual staff at Splash of Pink and I was so happy when they graciously provided me with their picture, each clad in Lilly with bright and shining faces.

Between now and Easter Sunday, they are offering free shipping on all orders over $50.

It probably will not be a surprise to you that besides the clothing, one of my favorite Lilly lines has always been the entertaining accessories. When I became a newlywed, this brought a whole new dimension to my appreciation of the unique and classic prints available from Lilly Pulitzer for home entertaining. As each season arrives, I look forward to seeing the new Lilly pieces available at Splash of Pink. This spring is no exception, with a bevy of bright-colored delights for your gathering in two delightful patterns: trademark pink and green in "luscious" and a pop of blue joins the mix for "nice to see you". 

Isn't this acrylic pitcher gorgeous? This is the "luscious" design, dazzling in pink and green, and perfect for filling with one of my party punches to serve guests out on my patio now that spring weather is here! I love the fact that they are dishwasher safe, BPA and lead free.

This one took my breath away: the matching melamine serving tray. Not only a serving piece, but a statement piece.

Here are the tumblers in the "nice to see you" pattern. Again, I absolutely love the fact they are both lead and BPA free, as well as dishwasher safe. I am so taken with the one-of-a-kind design, such a conversation piece at your gathering.

So I've glorified the dishwasher safe category of accessories, now let's move on to the line of disposable items that are anything but your average paper partyware.  
These are the gorgeous disposable dessert plates and beverage napkins available in "chum bucket" and "fan dance". Notice they coordinate with the melamine and acrylic serving accessories.

Here is one of their lovely store displays showcasing some of their new arrivals. I have already spotted an item that is now added to my must-have wish list. You can view Splash of Pink's website here  and visit their Facebook page here.
