If you're part of the "Lilly Blog Circle" then you already know about Lilly Pulitzer's 80th Birthday Brunch to benefit the Museum of Lifestyle and Fashion History located in Delray, Florida.

The lovely Birthday Brunch Committee ladies, Barbara Malone, Lisa Stuart and Mary Lane, contacted me to announce this to all my fabulous blog following ladies in hopes some of you will be able to attend. Of course, for anything Lilly, I am thrilled to do so!
The lovely ladies, Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau and Mary Lane (event chair).
Per Barbara Malone, Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau will be in attendance and she fondly spoke of prior engagements with the guest of honor: 
"{Lilly Pulitzer}....is so lovely and gracious.  It was honestly the thrill of a lifetime to meet and chat with her.  She was so thrilled to see everyone dressed in Lilly."

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:

I am simply LOVING these men's fashions!  LOVE!
The For the Love of Lilly exhibit has been on display at the museum since August 2010 and will remain until November 2011, until after the Luncheon. 

The exhibit contains approximately 80 vintage Lilly Pulitzer items from dresses, accessories and fabrics to men's and children's fashions, galoshes and even napkins!

An exhibit any Lilly lover would certainly not want to miss.


Happy Wednesday Y'all!
