A Little Eye Candy...

I am landlocked this beautiful Memorial Day weekend but I did get a little taste of tropical/nautical eye candy. (I am sitting on a fabulous screened porch enjoying sunshine, iced tea and a good breeze so it's not all that bad!!) These are a couple of shots from the hand painted, yes hand-painted, dressing rooms at the new Lilly Pulitzer store at Phipps Plaza in ATL. This is a fabulous and simple zig zaggy, stripey, hand-painted design that would look good in any colorway and would be fun and easy to reproduce. It was super cute but even better were ...

... the walls in this coral, to-die-for dressing room!!!
The cute, little, Lilly-dressed sales girls said I could move in when I asked if I could just live in that dressing room. These are really large rooms that are hand-painted. I didn't snap a picture of one of the others but it was the Georgia Peach Toile hand-painted all over the walls and ceiling of the dressing room.
I've always loved Lilly for the beachy designs and colors and College Girl is addicted to Lilly so this was a fun afternoon of oohing and ahhing and they encourage you to snap pictures if you wish!! It's the happiest store (and this is huge for me to say because I am not a shopper and really don't love a trip to the mall!!)
Before I fell in love with this dressing room my favorite Lilly store decor was the giant, practically life-sized Palm Tree sewn from Lilly fabrics in the Lilly store on King Street in Charleston, SC.  But now I am obsessed with these walls :)
It's worth the time to visit Lilly at Phipps and check out these handpainted walls!! I'm feeling inspired to try a canvas knock off of my favorite Lilly dressing room. I'll let you know how it turns out!!!


  1. SO AWESOME! Especially love the shells! I'm not that creative or brave, but love to see the success other people have!!

  2. What a cute idea! I love the hand painting. Leave it to Lilly....she is amazingly talented. I thought to myself....of course the dressing rooms would be hand-painted :)
