I promised to reveal our best sellers from Resort 09, but it was such a fabulous collection that it was really too close to call! Honestly, everything in the collection has done really well and it would be almost impossible to post just a few items. The Cassine Vest, Katherine Cable Sweater, Lee Cashmere & Cotton Cardigan, Mainsail Fleece jacket, Overboard Hoodie Sweater and Original bags (all sizes) were most likely our most popular gift items during the holiday season. The Hobe Sound Short in Dirty Shirley sold out immediately and we re-ordered asap and still have a few pairs left in the store. We sold a lot of Petula dresses, Joy knit tunics, Swim separates, the new Hartnell skirts and Kelsea dresses. You should really try the new Kelsea dress, if you haven't already. It is very similar to the Wendy dress that Lilly used to make as a swim cover-up dress, but Lilly Lovers have always worn that as a casual dress, too. I was beyond thrilled when I saw the Kelsea in the Resort Collection.
Kelsea Dress in Coral Me Crazy $138 Joy Knit Tunic in Big Bam $98
The Joy knit tunic works just as well as a top as it does for a swim cover-up. I just love the pieces that Lilly makes that we can wear in so many ways. It is like recycling, right? Speaking of that, some of my customers are planning on wearing the Petula dress as a skirt!
I must rave about the Petula dress. I took two Petula dresses with me on a recent trip to Hawaii. I wore them constantly! They are the best for travel. Not a wrinkle! I didn't even have to plug my steamer in once! I received so many compliments on both dresses and they are so comfortable. I felt like I was wearing my night gown, but I certainly didn't look like it! The dress is very glamourous and can be dressed up or down very easily. It looks great for day with Mckims and then dress it up at night with a chunky necklace and gold wedge sandals.

And the Minnies? The Piper Fleece, Parker Vest and Arianna dress were the top sellers for holiday gifts. The Little Kelsea, Nina Tunic and Julia dress are also selling extremely well. The girls are wearing the Nina tunic with the embroidered Lilly jeans and it looks so cute. Does your Minnie have a favorite from Resort?
