With paw print, fashion collection pays tribute to those affected by breast cancer

Lilly Pulitzer is introducing a new original print on a collection that will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The Paws for a Cause collection will be in Lilly Pulitzer stores and online Thursday and includes women’s pajamas, robe, leggings, top, scarf, skort, blanket and hat, as well as girls’ T-shirt and leggings. Prices range from $38 to $138.

Handprinted in the Lilly Pulitzer studio, the new print is a whirl of color with pink ribbons, flowers and cats. The collection is a tribute to breast cancer patients, advocates, caregivers, loved ones and thrivers. A few of the styles were designed with input from those who had either gone through cancer treatments or supported someone who did.

This year, Lilly Pulitzer will donate $30,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for the funding of 600 hours of research.
