I’ve Got (New) Goals, Yo.

Greetings from Shelter Island, where the wine is crisp and I haven’t yet been invited onto one of these yachts.

It’s the first beach weekend of the year, and I am HAPPY.

When I get back, though, I have some new goals to chase. I’ll probably start marathon training in about another month or so, and I always like to use non-running training as a time to strength train.

We have a ladies’ chat room at work, and last week my friend Alison asked if anyone wanted to try our lifting program together. IT’S ON. We’re not going to 100% follow the entire program, but we’re starting with a realistic two days a week on top of our normal workout routines.

Lilly Pulitzer Cookies

We spent Saturday afternoon window shopping in East Hampton, where there were definitely NO sales, but there’s lots of sales on the internets today, and I am trying to un-memorize my credit card number right now.

Lilly: LOTS of gifts with purchase. I can’t say I’d mind a rolling cooler, but I’m not ready for that kind of spend!

Nordstrom: Half yearly sale! Ashley has some great picks in this post.

Rebecca Minkoff: up to 50% off. I am NOT clicking through. I am NOT clicking through.

Athleta: $25 off $150, $50 off $250, $150 off $500 with code HEATINGUP.

What are your current workout goalz?

What You Need to Know About Lilly Pulitzer for Target

Next week, I’ll be more runner than preppy, but for now, I need to tell you about Lilly for Target.

Lilly Pulitzer for Target Bryant Park

I was lucky enough to get to go to the press/VIP night at the pop-up in Bryant Park, and I pretty much died of happiness.

I’ve gotten a bunch of questions on Instagram, and I have read entirely too much about this collaboration, so here’s what you need to know if you’re going to shop Sunday.

1. Read the lookbook. Familiarize yourself with the pieces you’re interested, so that, whether you’re throwing elbows in a store or trying to shop online, you won’t waste time browsing.

2. If you’re shopping online, create your account on now if you don’t already have one. The collection’s supposed to launch between 1-3am EST, so if you really want to get stuff, that’s when to be online.

3. The quality: this is what a lot of you really wanted to know. At the Target price point, it’s obviously not the same quality as full-price Lilly. But hi, $40 dresses! There are no bra stays (a random feature I really like on Lilly dresses), the zippers feel a bit less sturdy, and the material isn’t quite as thick as the full-price version.

4. And the sizing is the other thing you all wanted to know. Like all Lilly, it’s not the most forgiving if you’re busty. Overall, the sizing is a tiny bit more forgiving, though, than their typical sizing.

5. Be open to stuff like rompers and jumpsuits. Of everything I picked up, those are actually my favorite pieces!
