As are monkeys, birds and flowers.Lane's knowledge of Lilly lore is encyclopedic. Lilly Pulitzer, she will tell you, was a young Palm Beach socialite, bride of Peter Pulitzer, who was the grandson of the Pulitzer Prize's Joseph Pulitzer and the owner of several Florida citrus groves.Lilly, a free spirited bohemian, opened a juice stand off Worth Avenue in 1959. Squeezing juice from limes, oranges and pink grapefruit was a hot and messy business, so she had her dressmaker create a collection of sleeveless shifts in bright cotton prints.Soon she was selling dresses as well as juice. And in 1964, when Life magazine ran a picture of First Lady Jackie Kennedy wearing a Lilly shift, the line exploded from curiosity to sensation.It flourished until 1984, when Pulitzer closed down the operation and retired. But a decade later, the line was revived when fashion industry veterans James Bradbeer and Scott Beaumont bought the rights to her name and revived the line to the delight of Lilly fans everywhere."I was a child when I got my first piece a little shift dress with bows on the side," recalls Lane. "Then for a while, the Lilly label disappeared. When I saw it again, it was like seeing an old friend. I grabbed every piece I could."Ever since, collecting Lilly has become a habit bordering on obsession."It's what happens when you are fashion deprived from an early age.

She toured the design and production plants, lunched with corporate bigwigs and even got to design her own Lilly dress a classic shift in the vibrant pink and green "Cabanarama" print.The entire experience is recorded as a slide show in her computer, which she eagerly screens for visitors.She also pulls up a photograph of the pink, feathered Christmas tree she
