Lilly Pulitzer Social Media Recents

Hello all! Sorry I did not post anything yesterday… Tuesdays are my long days. I have four classes and by the time I get home I am to tired to do anything except watch Netflix and chill out. Today I wanted to do another Social Media post about one of my favorite companies, Lilly Pulitzer! I have posted about Lilly’s social media plenty of other times in my past posts. Go check those out!

Post #1: This post is from Lilly Pulitzer’s Instagram account (@lillypulitzer). The caption for this picture is “Spotted in the print studio…” One reason why I LOVE Lilly is that they do not over use hashtags. This is really nice. I love this picture too because it fits the overall theme of the company which is artistic, colorful, floral, clean, fun, flirty and many many other words!

Post #2: This is another post from Lilly’s Instagram account. This one is captioned “Stir crazy?! Here’s a SHORT story. #buymelilly” During the holidays, Lilly Pulitzer came out with a media campaign to improve awareness through social media with the hashtag, #buymelilly. They had so so so many posts for this! I love this post because currently I am battling a 10 degree day with a foot of snow on the ground! Give me those Lilly shorts baby!

Post #3: Unlike the top two, this one is from Lilly Pulitzer’s Facebook Page (Lilly Pulitzer). This post is congratulating the new sorority print members to their collection! If you buy one of these new prints, you will get a special surprise! They also have a link to their Sorority Collection. I am not in a sorority in college but these are great patterns and if I was, I would be all over this!

Post #4: Lilly just posted this one yesterday on their Facebook page. This picture is a part of the #lilly5x5 collection honoring Shirley Temple who passed away yesterday at the age of 85! I LOVE this post. It makes me smile so much! Shirley Temples were my staple drink as a child. You can find the entire #lilly5x5 collection on their Pinterest board.

#lilly5x5 – Social Media

So for all of my social media followers, my inner Communications college student is ready to talk social media! As you probably can tell from my older posts… I am a huge Lilly Pulitzer fan! They have a great media presence and are always using unique, creative tactics. My favorite campaign they have been doing is the #lilly5x5 (I linked their Pinterest account here of all their #lilly5x5’s). Every few days Lilly accounts will post a #lilly5x5 creates by one of their print designers. Here are three of my latest favorites:

Favorite #1: First off, I love the colors in this 5×5… they are awesome. Green with fuchsia is a great look. Putting the lemurs in the picture is also very interesting! Normally, when you think of Lilly Pulitzer you think of flowers, birds, sun, beach, etc. Not MONKEYS?! The caption for this picture says “It is Friday fur sure #lilly5x5.” Did anyone notice the pun?! Lilly always uses creative puns in their captions. This #lilly5x5 was found on their Instagram account (@lillypulitzer).

IMG_5002

Favorite #2: This one caught my eye with all the colors! It is so so so beautiful. These look like huge leaves in a rainforest that are very very verdant with light blue highlights. The caption for this #lilly5x5 is: “#Janus… a peace offering. #lilly5x5.” You might be thinking what #Janus is… and I was too! After doing some research, #Janus is a winter storm that just hit New York City! Haha wow cannot believe I didn’t know that! The storm was more coastal and was not big enough to reach my home town in upstate NY. I would rather be basking in this #lilly5x5 rather than shoveling through the snow.

IMG_5056

Favorite #3: This is a more subtle #lilly5x5. The caption for this one from the @lillypulitzer Instagram account is “We’re telling “nauti” tales in the Print Studio today… Happy Friday! #lilly5x5.” Again… another PUN! Lilly loves their wacky, creative puns. I love the anchor with the fish swimming around it. Anchors are a huge fad right now.

So those are all the #lilly5x5’s I have for now to share! I love doing these types of posts and finding new companies that keep up with social media trends. What are your favorite companies to follow on social media?!

Holiday Lilly Pulitzer Social Media

So I know that this is a bit late… because it is not Christmas or the holiday season anymore! But, I thought these were awesome Lilly Pulitzer social media posts. I had to share them! Lilly Pulitzer is a designer with home roots in Palm Beach, Florida. I have talked about this brand more in detail in posts below. But you can find information and shop at their website.

Post #1: So this is a pretty unique Instagram post from Lilly Pulitzer because it shows fans #buymelilly posts. Lilly started a “selfie” campaign around Christmas called #buymelilly, where customers would take pictures on social media of them in their new Lilly purchases! Here are a few of the fan pictures in this post.

Post #2: This was a Facebook post from Lilly showing all their Lilly stocking styles. This post is informational and basically an ad because to get these stockings, Lilly customers had to spend x amount during the holiday season. What stocking would you pick?! I would go for the green one in the front.

Post #3: This is the famous pink Lilly Christmas tree post on Instagram. I love this tree and post because it truly exemplifies the brand of Lilly Pulitzer. It is a bright pink, has colorful ornaments on it, Lilly bags under the tree and you can tell it is in a Lilly office or store because of the colorful, Lilly printed couch in the background.

Post #4: This is a #lilly5x5 posted on Facebook. I thought this was adorable! The water color picture is painted perfectly and the saying is pretty original, “Meet Me Under The Mistletoe.”

IMG_4502

 

Post #5: This is another #lilly5x5 post on Instagram. I thought that this one was also pretty adorable but it also represents the brand! You have the snow globe with painted with colorful water colors and inside the snow globe is a tropical setting! Most of the Lilly clothes are made for tropical vacations and locations! They are very very colorful!

IMG_4537

 

Post #6: Again, another #lilly5x5 on Instagram, but this one is another take on the “mistletoe” post. This time, the post represents the brand. The caption says, “Find me under the tropical mistletoe #lilly5x5.” The brand represents the tropics so this fits with the brand!

I enjoy finding all these different social media posts and then blogging about them, let me know if you enjoy these posts! Happy Wednesday! Tata for now!

Lilly Pulitzer Social Media Extravaganza

Hello all! Today I decided to post about some of my social media favorites (again) from Lilly Pulitzer! For the Lilly virgins, Lilly Pulitzer is a women who started a juice stand in Palm Beach, Florida. To prevent juice stains, she started making sleeveless dresses out of colorful cotton. She started to sell more dresses and juice at this point. Lilly Pulitzer passed away last year but her designs still reign on. Lilly Pulitzer is now a colorful brand that focuses on beach wear and print designs.

Post #1: This was an Instagram post. (I believe I talked about another post that related to this contest in a blog post bellow) So this post was showing the results of a contest which wanted to know what were the most popular initials to put on their Marielle sweater design.  Reasons why I like this post are….

  • It really represents the company
  • It shows all of the letters actually on the sweater
  • The way the store folded the sweaters is very unique and innovative

IMG_3348

 

Post #2: I really really love this Instagram post. I like how it puts together two social media mediums. In this case, it is a Instagram post that refers to an article on the company’s blog about working for Lilly. You could say that it also connects to twitter because f the hashtag #lillydreamjob. Their website actually has a page titled Dream Jobs that describes what a day consists of when working for Lilly Pulitzer (http://www.lillypulitzer.com/custserv/custserv.jsp?pageName=DreamJobs).

IMG_3490

 

Post #3: This is another Instagram post (if you cannot tell by now, Lilly loves Insta). I like this post because it is very informational. The contents include…

  • Information about a upcoming contest (even provides exact dates)
  • Reasons for the contest (Lilly’s Birthday)
  • How to enter the contest (steps)

Other companies also use this form of medium to introduce contests through social media. (ncLA, Ray-ban, etc.)

IMG_3628

 

Post #4: Unlike the other posts, this one is from Facebook. I love this posts because it relates to my other passion, travel. Especially in Florida, which is one of the most tropical states in the United States. This post is also very important because it is…

  • Historical to Lilly Pulitzer
  • First location of Lilly Pulitzer
  • Shows how to dress in style in the Lilly Pulitzer mother land

I have never been to Palm Beach, but I have been to other areas of Florida so I am sure it is beautiful.

IMG_3638

 

Post #5: This post is very similar to the one above because it is also a Facebook posts that talks about travel. Again, this is another destination in Florida, Key West. I actually have a more personal connection to this post than the one above because I have been to Key West multiple times. This is a good posts because it replicates other travel posts from Lilly, it provides a guide to secret spots around the island of Key West and it represents their brand well because it is in Florida.

IMG_3908

 

To finish off this post, I wanted to show y’all a picture of my mom and I wearing Lilly Pulitzer in Key West, Florida earlier this year! (if only we had this awesome travel guide while we were there)

Tata for now! I bet everyone in the North is wishing they were vacationing in Florida around this time of year 🙂

 

Lilly Pulitzer Social Media Favorites

As a Southern Bell, I am a huge fan of the tropical and colorful prints Lilly Pulitzer creates. I especially love all of the prints which make you want to bathe in the sun, attend a party on the beach or make you want to travel through all of the Florida Keys.

Since my love for Lilly is growing and I appreciate it more (I currently am trying to survive a frigid winter), I have started to follow Lilly Pulitzer on almost every social media outlet. I picked three of my favorite posts in the last year to share with y’all!

1. The Bow Tie Post: I really like this post and think it stands out from the rest because it talks about BOY Lilly. Who knew?! It makes sense that Lilly has a hard time relating to the male crowd because they create very feminine prints. But it was a joy to see the company posting about bow ties for once!

IMG_1314

 

2. The Zodiac Post: This is one of my favorite Lilly posts because… I am a Leo and really enjoy reading my horoscope! Another factor that makes this post interesting is the line “We’re celebrating Leo!” because it makes you feel important and special. It was also a good move to make a Leo print that relates with all of the “Leo’s” out there. It will be interesting to see if Lilly makes prints and creates a horoscope for all of the Zodiac signs.

3. Sweater Weather Post: This post probably relates to a lot of people right now because of the beginning of the winter and holiday seasons. This is a very interactive posts because it shows the results of a previous contest. Although only a few letters are available, it was important for Lilly to note that more letters will be added and another competition will be held. (I actually just ordered the “A” sweater for myself!)
