Lilly Pulitzer has come to Marco Island.

The women’s clothing brand recently opened a seasonal “pop up” shop in the Esplanade. The store will be open through May 2018.

Lilly Pulitzer was founded in Palm Beach, Florida during early 1960s. The company rose in popularity after Jacqueline Kennedy was photographed wearing one of its designs. Today the brand is best known for its bright colors, tropical designs and resort wear fashions. Its silhouettes and colorful patterns harken back to the style that predominated the 60s.

“It’s very nostalgic to a lot of people here in Florida,” store manager Samantha Lewis said.
