It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of designer Lilly Pulitzer. Just hours ago, the Lilly Pulitzer Facebook page made a statement concerning the sad news. The news post read:
Early this morning, Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau
passed away peacefully in Palm Beach, surrounded by family and loved
ones. Lilly has been a true inspiration to us and we will miss her.
In the days and weeks ahead we will celebrate all that Lilly meant to
us. Lilly was a true original who has brought together generations
through her bright and happy mark on the world.
For those of you familiar with the brand, you will know there are millions of women in the United States that will be mourning this great loss this afternoon. Lilly Pulitzer was the mastermind behind the label that dressed me, and many of my peers, for every warm weather event that ever was. Her brightly coloured dresses decorated more parties, weddings, graduations and BBQs than I could ever count.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the brand today.
