Just Around The Corner

We are heading to Nemacolin on Friday...Mr. Grove, myself, Mini K, Baby C and thank God Miss J is coming with us! I had everything laid out tonight so packing tomorrow would be easy and Mr. Grove's comment was the spare bedroom looks like the cutting room floor of a Lilly manufacturing plant. Only a man would compare clothing to a manufacturing plant!

This might sound strange, but my favorite time of year to waer Lilly Pulitzer is fall. I know I should say spring, or summer and I wear it then too, but there has always been something about the fall collection that I must have...okay who are we kidding and this year is no different.

I have heard rumors there will be some pieces designed for yoga and I promise you they will be in my closet. Mini K has one request for pre-K and that is she wear Lilly her first day of school. She did last year...and come to think of it wore it on the last day as well!

The Grove will be carrying the new Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2010 stationery and gift line. We are so excited to debut the umbrellas, iphone covers, water bottles and desk calendars for (gulp!) 2011. Grove Gal E and I are planning a Holiday preview party complete with pink cocktails so drop us your email if you live in the D.C. area and want an invite.

The photos from the fall home line are out and I am purchasing this set...if only I could snap my fingers and have a room painted with these perfect stripes without the hassle of well having a painter paint said stripes. For those of you that know me, you are wondering what room I plan on putting this set in. My answer is the moment none, but I have been collecting Lilly P bedding since it was sold in Lilly stores for the vacation house that we are on track to purchase in the next 2 years.

I think for me the best part of fall is anticipating it. I might be alone, but I swear just thinking about fall temps, the leaves changing colors cools me off on a hot August day and August will be here tomorrow it seems.

I hate that retailers are rushing things...I like that Lilly Pulitzer doesn't have tons of photos of the fallc ollection plastered everywhere right now...I want to enjoy the summer.

I went into CVS today to purchase sunscreen and you know what I saw...CANDY CORN...not joking! Seriously...why not just bring out the Christmas trees tomorrow!

Hi, Grove Gal K. I'd love to be added to your holiday preview party list. Thanks!

Candy Corn in July just depresses me. I think it is just precious and perfect that Mini K wants to wear Lilly the first day of school! What month are you doing your preview? If I am visiting my daughter, I might be able to come! I could maybe come with the Landlocked Mermaid :-) xoxo

Where will you buy your vacation home? I love that you have it all planned!

I love to wear Lilly best in the fall too. For me, most of the fall pieces are easier to work into my "work" wardrobe.

Too soon for candy corn! Having that around while its still bathing suit season spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E!!!

So jealous of your vacation - hope you all have a fabulous time.

Fall is not only my favorite season, but my fav Lilly season as well. :)

Oh and did I tell you, I JUST realized this past week that your twitter handle was "Grove Gal K" and not "Grove Galk." Yeah, consider me very out of it.

I too am dying over the new Lily fall bedding. It comes at a time where I need new stuff for college, so a definite posibility.
