I have a sneaking suspicion that over the course of the holiday weekend, the Dark ‘n Stormys were flowing at local watering holes including the Clarke Cooke House, @ The Deck, The Black Pearl and many more—made with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum (recipe below). It may be Bermuda’s National Drink, but the cocktail is one of Newport’s favorites, which is why when the brand partnered with Lilly Pulitzer for a custom-designed print featured on pieces in the Summer 2011 collection, the two seemed like a match made in heaven.
The collection includes Lilly’s original shift dress with embroidered embellishments, a pair of short shorts (3” inseam), an a-line skirt, and a killer tote (that flew off shelves super quick to the point where they’re now considered a rare find). Select pieces available at Newport’s Island Outfitters. Also, if you like Lilly, you’ll love the Angela Moore Fashion Show & Champagne Breakfast on Thursday morning–click here for the skinny!
