You Won’t Believe How Much These S’Well Lilly Pulitzer x Starbucks Water Bottles Are Going for on eBay
Earlier this month, we gave you the deets on the prettiest Starbucks thermos you’ve ever seen. Apparel giant Lilly Pulitzer teamed up with the coffee megachain and S’well to release a line of fabulously floral print water bottles just in time for spring. By the looks of it, the bottle is shaping up to be the hottest commodity of this spring!
The water bottles that promise to keep a beverage cold for a full 24 hours and hot for 12 sold out super quickly in stores. Just this morning, more were released on Starbucks’ online store, only to be sold out AGAIN (drats!). But all hope is not lost. You can still get your hands on some Lilly x SBucks goods — if you’re willing to pay a little more.
People are selling the bottles over on eBay in their varying prints of Sirens Calling, Fresh Squeezed!, Resort Escape Floral, and Palm Beach Jungle, and while some current bids are pretty reasonable at just $1 to $2 more than their regular retail price of $40 (buy-it-now prices start at $70 plus shipping), others are going for as much as $99 each, with the full set being sold for up to $389 (!!!).
If you’re not exactly keen on shelling out $100+ for a water bottle, you can keep your fingers crossed for a Starbucks restock online or mine your local store for the proverbial needle in the water bottle haystack, as there’s no telling how long these guys will last.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
