Keni Valenti announces the second show of the 2013 season,"Lilly Pulitzer" celebrating her design career. There is only one Lilly Pulitzer, socialite, free-spirit and entrepreneur – all of that beginning in the 1950’s! Lillian Pulitzer Rousseau (born Lillian Lee McKim on November 10, 1931), better known as Lilly Pulitzer, is a HYPERLINK "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialite"socialite and HYPERLINK "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fashion_designer" . She is known for founding Lilly Pulitzer, Inc., which produces clothing and other wares featuring bright eye-popping prints and the Palm Beach lifestyle. The brand and designs epitomize and suit the preppy lifestyle so much so that Lilly has been called the "Queen of HYPERLINK "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preppy"Prep".
Pulitzer opened a juice stand in Palm Beach Florida where she decided to make colorful dresses to hide the juice stains. These dresses were light, effortless and sleeveless. Pulitzer's schoolmate HYPERLINK "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Lady_of_the_United_States"First Lady HYPERLINK "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacqueline_Kennedy_Onassis"Jackie Kennedy wore one of the dresses while on vacation. After Kennedy was photographed, people everywhere wanted the dresses that were soon to be the Pulitzer signature.
