Clutch made with Lilly Pulitzer vintage fabric in the pattern: "Our Joan" by Suzie Zuzek dePoo
I have two etsy shops (you can see links for both in the right hand column), The first: Looking 4 Lilly, is where I sell items made with contemporary Lilly Pulitzer fabric patterns (1994-present) and the second: The Vintage Lilly is where I sell items made with vintage Lilly fabric prints (1959"ish"-1984). The majority of patterns seen in the vintage shop were designed by Suzie Zuzek dePoo who was, as I'm sure many of you know, Lilly's head fabric designer for nearly twenty five years. Ms. Zuzek dePoo's work is amazing. Like Lilly's tigers? You can thank Ms. dePoo for them, as well as so many other animal prints and floral pattern styles that we fans immediately identify as quintessential "Lilly". I love how Lilly's current pattern artists/designers sometimes borrow from the past and provide us with an updated version of the earlier Lilly prints. We get the best of both worlds.
On to the clutches...
The clutches that I make, which have so far been available in my shop: The Vintage Lilly, have exceeded my expectations when it comes to customer interest. So, as true believer in "giving the people what they want", I've decided to do a clutch giveaway. I'll post the details this Sunday, April 11. The drawing will be held towards the end of the month. I haven't made the clutch for the giveaway yet...please feel free to visit my shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/thevintagelilly), take a peek at the patterns you see on the headbands and tell me which one you would like to see used on the clutch for the giveaway. I'm always more than happy to take suggestions. Keep in mind though, I currently have about 120 vintage Lilly patterns on hand (I search endlessly folks) so, it could be any one of them. I will definitely use a vintage Lilly print for this particular giveaway and it will look something like the ones seen here. So, stay tuned!
