Yesterday, Lilly Pulitzer was laid to rest, but instead of wearing black, I have been decked out from head to toe in my finest Lilly all week… One cannot help but be happy wearing such bright and cheery colors, and from all accounts, Lilly lived a very happy and fun life.
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!
