Thrift Score: Lilly Pulitzer Dress

 

s-l1600Lilly Pulitzer became a major fashion designer in the 1960s. She and her husband ran a juice stand in Florida and she asked a dress makers to sew her something that wouldn’t show those bright colored fruit stains so badly. And that was the start of the gorgeous, happy prints of this brand!

I almost always pick up Lilly Pulitzer items when I find them, but not all of them sell this well. I attribute the bidding to the right time of year and the right size (this was an XL).

Purchase price: $5, Goodwill

Shipping and fees: $9.40

Sale Price: $53.99

Total Profit: $39.59
