ABOUT BEACH BASH
Now in its 13th year, Beach Bash Palm Beach, presented by Lilly Pulitzer is the social highlight of the season! More than 700 guests will descend upon The Beach Club on the island which made Lilly Pulitzer an iconic resort-wear brand. Decked in their brightest Lilly, guests will enjoy fabulous fashion, colorful cocktails, delectable bites, and pulse-quickening entertainment while mixing with young philanthropic leaders from around the globe. Proceeds benefit Palm Beach’s ocean and sea turtle conservation hub, Loggerhead Marinelife Center. Saving sea turtles never looked so good!
Lilly Pulitzer speaks to generations of rule-breaking, sun-followers who celebrate the spontaneous bohemian spirit of Lilly Pulitzer. The company’s effortless fashions are truly born from an original. It all happened by accident, when in 1959-ish Lilly (McKim) Pulitzer—a stylish Palm Beach hostess and socialite whose husband Peter Pulitzer owned several Florida citrus groves—needed a project of her own. With Peter’s produce, she opened a juice stand on Via Mizner, just off Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. Lilly Pulitzer’s business was a hit, but squeezing oranges, lemons, limes, and pink grapefruit made a mess of her clothes. Realizing that she needed a juice stand uniform, Lilly asked her dressmaker to design a dress that would camouflage the stains. The result? A comfortable sleeveless shift dress made of bright, colorful printed cotton in pink, green, yellow and orange. Although her customers liked Lilly’s juice, they loved her shift dresses. Soon Lilly was selling more shift dresses than juice, so she decided to stop squeezing and focus on designing and selling her “Lillys.”
Lilly Pulitzer became a fashion sensation and a creator of authentic American resort wear as we know it. The brand is celebrating their 60-ish anniversary throughout 2019 and continues to create authentic printed styles straight from the in-house print design studio.
