As much as I enjoy wearing my Lilly, there is only one thing I would love even more… LIVING in an original Lilly creation. Did you know that Lilly’s Palm Beach home is for sale? And at a discount! Lilly Pulitzer originally listed her Palm Beach home in January 2011 for $11.5 M. Today, it is available for a cool $8.5M.
Located on S. County Road, Lilly personally oversaw every inch of the construction process as the whimsical home was built in the 1980's. Located in the historic Estate Section, the main house, casita, and pool house offer 8,233 square feet of combined living space, inside and out, with nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and three half-baths. The house stands on a lot that measures about one-and-a-third acres and is filled with meandering paths, patios, and tropical gardens so lush, Lilly referred to it as her “jungle.”

I was shocked to learn the estate is being sold for lot value… how could someone have the audacity to bulldoze Lilly Pulitzer’s home and sanctuary?! Wouldn’t you just love to scoop up this Lilly pad, fill empty champagne bottles with water, and slosh it on the floor so everyone could dance barefoot on the wet tile, Lilly style? – True story!

In my tribute to Lilly on Sunday, her daughter Liza described her late mother as having a “wicked” sense of humor, and if the walls within this S. County Road home could talk, they would surely tell some sidesplitting stories. Here are a few reported in 2011 in the Palm Beach Post…
