What could be better than a Neapolitan ice cream during the summer? A Neapolitan Lizzy, of course! Welcome back to one of our favorites, the Lizzy Zip Up! Inspired by one of Amy’s absolute favorite literary heroines…the indomitable, intelligent, strong, and witty Elizabeth (Bennett) Darcy, a gift to women everywhere, courtesy of Jane Austen.
The Lizzy originally appeared in a warm orange, and since it quickly became a sold-out favorite, Amy provided a double treat with the next version appearing in both teal and pistachio.
Happily, in Fall 2014 we were thrilled to welcome two new Lizzy colors; these were in fleece-brushed warm winter fabrics, with a super fun quilted detail added to the collar and the sleeves.
Lizzy in Persimmon
Lizzy in Pomegranate
Then, after about a year without a new Lizzy, in Fall 2015 the Pine Needle edition pleased every loyal Lizzy lover!
And now, the Lizzy in Neapolitan Stripe!
What is the same? The Lizzy Zip Up has always been a fun design centered around an asymmetrical zipper. We kept that, the two-toned feel with coordinating ribbed sleeve cuffs/waist band, thumbholes and pockets.
What is different? As long time customers are aware, the most recent Pine Needle Lizzy was created a little larger/looser than the original pieces, and this new one follows in the footsteps of the Pine Needle with a looser fit. We made this one with the same super soft luxe fabric, but in a slightly lighter weight for Spring…we took the hottest Pantone color of the year, Serenity blue, and striped it with off white, then finished off with a delicious light peach ribbing. We also carried the peach down the zipper and included the usual thumbholes and cozy pockets. This one is so so soft, and the collar can either be zipped up or down to reveal a big floppy collar or a high neck. This one is style plus! The perfect hoodie for a lunch date out…

The Lizzy is true to size; as usual, it’s a personal preference if you’d like to size up or down. It is pretty loose and many prefer to size down for a more snug fit. The sleeves are also slightly longer than other hoodies so you may want to size down if you feel like you have shorter arms. Ladies with longer torsos, fuller busts, or longer arms can stay in their normal size.
