Famed fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer has sadly passed away at the age of 81.

“Early this morning, Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau passed away peacefully in Palm Beach, surrounded by family and loved ones,” her company confirmed via Facebook on Sunday (April 7). “Lilly has been a true inspiration to us and we will miss her,” the touching tribute read. “In the days and weeks ahead we will celebrate all that Lilly meant to us. Lilly was a true original who has brought together generations through her bright and happy mark on the world.”

Lilly became popular in the 1960s for her tropical print dresses, which quickly became a sensation.
