If your mom is a Lilly Pulitzer fan like ours, then you may want to add this cottage to her travel bucket list.
The White Elephant Hotel on Nantucket Island has just opened a Lilly Pulitzer Cottage that's been designed by the folks at the preppy clothing label. While it's not exactly wall-to-wall Lilly stuff, it does feature the line's bright colors and several pieces of Lilly Pulitzer decor, namely in bedding and pillows. The cottage features a bedroom, a living room with a full-sized pull-out sofa, and complimentary amenities such as WiFi, beach and ferry shuttles and a Wave Shuttle pass to use for getting around the island. Rates start around $925 a night and most weekends in the summer require a minimum stay.
But the White Elephant isn't the only preppy haven hotel that Lilly Pulitzer has conquered. At the Watch Hill Inn on Rhode Island, there's a one-bedroom Lilly Pulitzer Suite that is full-on bright-colored Lilly stuff and decor, plus it has other desirable amenities too, like an up close view of Little Narrangasett bay, a washer and dryer, a stainless steel kitchen and a Lilly Pulitzer x Martone to pedal to the beach. Mom might like this suite even more. Rates start around $980 a night in July.
Of course, those are pretty steep stays so if you're cash-strapped, maybe just buy mom some Lilly Pulitzer throw pillows to liven up her own house.
