Most of the stores and restaurants on Martha's Vineyard were closed over the weekend during my quick visit. One of my favorite shops, in the pink - A Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store, had their door wide open as they were unpacking and gearing up for the upcoming season. I was admiring the neon pink of the latest line and I felt like it was suddenly summer. As I was browsing the manager told me that she just received the saddening news that Lilly Pulitzer had passed away that morning at 81. :(
