Take a Fashion Break During Tattersalls

Carson Kressley, a Trustee of the American Saddlebred Museum, has recently designed a fabric for the popular Lilly Pulitzer company. Entitled "Grandstand" the colorful design features Saddlebreds and incorporates images of tri-color ribbons, trophies, bits, saddles, peppermints, carrots, roses and a grandstand full of fashionably dressed fans!

Each year, Lilly Pulitzer invites a guest designer to create a pattern that will benefit a charity. When they approached Carson, he chose to designate the ASB Museum his charity. As a result, each piece sold from Carson’s line will carry a hang tag that sets forth the mission and gives the contact information of the ASB Museum. The roll out of Carson’s line coincides with the Spring TSE Tattersalls sale.

The Peppermint Palm, a clothing and gift boutique in Lexington, KY, is central Kentucky’s authorized distributor of Lilly Pulitzer products. The Junior League of Lexington has teamed up with the Peppermint Palm and is offering a promotion that will benefit the American Saddlebred Museum. From Thursday April 8 through Saturday April 10, 2010, the shop will donate 20% of every purchase to the American Saddlebred Museum if the buyer mentions the "Junior League of Lexington." In doing this, the Junior League will help benefit the Museum, one of its funded agencies, and thus gives something back to the industry that supports their horse show.

As an added attraction, Carson Kressley will make a personal appearance at the Peppermint Palm on Saturday April 10 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. He will be available to meet and greet, for autographs and for photo ops.

Lilly Pulitzer is known for its colorful, high quality Palm Beach style fabrics and designs. The company creates new patterns each year, which are then "retired." That means there is limited opportunity to purchase this Saddlebred design, as it will no longer be available once it sells out. So plan to purchase yours early! Come to Lexington and visit the Peppermint Palm, located in the Landsdowne Shoppes at 3333 Tates Creek Road in Lexington, KY, 859-268-1012 or And don’t forget to mention the "Junior League of Lexington" when making your purchase!
