Drawing inspiration from Lilly Pulitzer’s year-round tropical palette, the ‘Lilly Pulitzer for Pottery Barn’, ‘Lilly Pulitzer for Pottery Barn Kids’, and ‘Lilly Pulitzer for PBteen’ collections unveil more than 45 new signature Lilly hand-painted prints shown in bedding, furniture, towels, decorative accessories, lighting, and more. And, with the celebration of Lilly Pulitzer’s 60th anniversary, this brand new assortment provides customers with endless ways to embrace Lilly’s Palm Beach style at home.
“With this collection, the Pottery Barn brands are highlighting the iconic and vibrant Lilly Pulitzer lifestyle by incorporating new prints and new products,” said Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen President Jennifer Kellor. “By bringing together Lilly’s spirited prints with our commitment to creating quality home furnishings, together we’ve created a collection the entire family will enjoy.”
The highly-coveted collection of more than 100 pieces features a robust bedding assortment complete with duvets, comforters and quilts in 14 different Lilly Pulitzer prints, along with complimentary sheeting and accent pillows.
For the first time, the Lilly Pulitzer x Pottery Barn brands collection will also feature bath, adding resort style fun to morning routines. From embroidered palm tree hand towels, to bold pineapple print shower curtains complete with tassel detailing, these playful design accents will transform the bathroom into a colorful oasis.
In addition to bath and home décor, the new assortment includes everything you need to create a poolside Palm Beach party in your own backyard. With Lilly’s signature patterns and a collection of outdoor entertaining essentials, from beach towels to cushions, every day feels like summer vacation.
“As Lilly Pulitzer once said, ‘It’s always summer somewhere.' That certainly rings true with this bright, beautiful collection of custom Lilly Pulitzer prints, which is a proud part of our 60th anniversary celebration,” said Lilly Pulitzer CEO Michelle Kelly. “We were so pleased that customers loved the first collaboration, and we are thrilled to work again with the talented Pottery Barn brands team to deliver a collection that brings joy and color into the home for the entire family to enjoy a resort mindset 365 days a year.”

ABOUT LILLY PULITZER
Lilly Pulitzer speaks to generations of rule-breaking, sun-followers who celebrate the spontaneous bohemian spirit of Lilly Pulitzer. The company’s effortless fashions are truly born from an original. It all happened by accident, when in 1959-ish Lilly (McKim) Pulitzer—a stylish Palm Beach hostess and socialite whose husband Peter Pulitzer owned several Florida citrus groves—needed a project of her own. With Peter’s produce, she opened a juice stand on Via Mizner, just off Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. Lilly Pulitzer’s business was a hit, but squeezing oranges, lemons, limes, and pink grapefruit made a mess of her clothes. Realizing that she needed a juice stand uniform, Lilly asked her dressmaker to design a dress that would camouflage the stains. The result? A comfortable sleeveless shift dress made of bright, colorful printed cotton in pink, green, yellow and orange. Although her customers liked Lilly’s juice, they loved her shift dresses. Soon Lilly was selling more shift dresses than juice, so she decided to stop squeezing and focus on designing and selling her “Lillys.” Lilly Pulitzer became a fashion sensation and a creator of authentic American resort wear as we know it. The brand is celebrating its 60th anniversary year and continues to create authentic printed styles straight from the in-house print design studio.
