Lilly Pulitzer Opens in Georgetown Friday

“In 1960-something a twenty-something Lilly Pulitzer opened her first boutique in the Vias off of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach,” the story goes. Soon — this Friday, May 20, in fact — the flowery chain of boutiques is going to paint the town pink with the grand opening of its new D.C. location, right here in Georgetown at 1079 Wisconsin Ave. NW. Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The celebration for the opening will include drinks, sweets and music — not to mention the iconic Lilly jeep, parked out front for everyone to enjoy. The store invites Georgetown residents and others to stop by to enjoy the festivities, experience the bright, popping colors and shop the latest Lilly styles.

Nancy Reagan: Fashion Icon

America has lost not only a former first lady but also one of its greatest icons of fashion. Nancy Reagan was known for bringing a sense of style to the White House of President Ronald Reagan in the 1980s that had not been seen since the days of first lady Jackie Kennedy in the 1960s. Reagan represented glamour, grace and impeccable style. “Nancy never made a fashion faux pas,” said designer Oscar de la Renta. Her signature color was called “Reagan Red,” and it soon became the color choice of the Republican Party. Her preferred designers were Oscar de la Renta, Bill Blass, Adolfo, Carolina Herrera, James Galanos and Arnold Scassi.  She will be buried at the grounds of the Reagan Presidential Library, next to her beloved husband, "Ronnie," as she liked to say. With all her other achievements, her fashion style endures. [gallery ids="102262,128734,128741,128770,128749,128757,128762,128777" nav="thumbs"]
