Well Read Prep

I was first given this book when it came out several years ago by my sweet friend, E. I loved it immediately. Then a few years later I was given it again by another sweet friend, B. And I found it here in Upstate NY and bought it for Bestie. I re-gifted the second book too. It's fab and most of you probably already have a copy. Love it!




Then yesterday when I ran into a store to look for something, I checked out their small but surprisingly decent book section. Look what shouted to me right away! It retails for $30 and is well worth ever penny. The great photographs, endless personal stories from Lilly Pulitzer and great entertaining tips and recipes are so fantastic. But this is a discount store and I paid way way way less than retail. I LOVE that! I love an unexpected bargain. It really is all about the little things in life for me!

I just bought the first Lilly book for my sister a few weeks ago. I'm sure she's loving it as much as you loved yours. :)

I have the latter one and I love it. Great recipes.

I have both also. The first one, I think I paid $3 for it at Parisian. The second one, I got for 25% off because it sat in the sun and the jacket was faded. When I got out of the store, I opened it up and Lilly herself had signed it.

I especially love the elephant on the cover of the second one :)

Okay Croc,

Give it up! Where did you find it?

I'm sorry I haven't been in touch, end of the school year is always hectic! I've been meaning to email you about a fabby local handbag designer! She's awesome and does tons of bags in Lilly fabrics!

Be in touch soon! Pre-school grad is tonight!

I have them both! You don't really need the "invite" to the warehouse sale. If you show up and buy things....which you WILL then they give you a card to fill out to be inluded on the invite list for years to come. You will have to make a girls' trip out of it one year. Right next to King of Prussia mall which is great, too. Have a good weekend!
