I made a quick trip out to the suburbs last Friday afternoon to visit the first Lilly Pulitzer store in the midwest! It had been years since I had been to Oakbrook Shopping Center, but I quickly remembered just how much I love that mall. It used to be a very frequented stop on school breaks when I would be in the suburbs visiting my friends from college!
The store is so bright, colorful, and fun… Just as you’d expect! Major decor inspiration in the dressing room, that’s for sure. And just like the store in New York City, the Lilly Pulitzer at Oakbrook even has it’s own SnapChat filter!
One of my favorite parts was the Chicago changing room! One of the rooms in the dressing room is decked out in iconic Chicago motifs… Deep-dish pizza, the skyline, the Bean, the Cubs, the Bulls, the Chicagoland colleges, you name it! It’s hand-painted, like much of the store, and it’s just incredible. (Fun fact: On the wall in the back retail area, there’s a painted mermaid holding up the Stanley Cup!)
Naturally, I couldn’t spend time in a Lilly store and come out empty handed. I picked up a few pieces that will be perfect for the last few weeks of summer! (I can already picture myself wearing them on vacation this winter, too!)
Here’s what I picked up…
