Whatever people thought of Lilly Pulitzer, she was one of a kind, and yes, I did buy her fashion items. She always loved Spring and bright colors, and from what I read about her, she was a fun person, even controversial. I will treasure the things I did buy, that she designed or created, and will miss her fun use of colors, and her style. Another designer gone to that great colorful pallette in the sky, to be recreated, by the "Author". She will be missed!
