It’s no secret that if brands I love release collabs, I’m going to be the first in line to purchase each and every limited edition item I can get my hands on. From Lilly for Target to the recent Target x Baublebar launch, let’s just say that my checking account takes a serious blow every time one of these drops. The latest and greatest collab, however, is the combination of my two favorite brands to ever exist, and I am DYING over the arrival of these products – and I’m pretty sure you will be too. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, Starbucks and Lilly have teamed up, and whether or not I get a ring by spring, my life is finally complete.
Starting February 15th, you’ll be able to buy Lilly patterned S’well water bottles in Starbucks stores for $40 each (or, more factually, $120 since you’ll obviously buy all four). Each of the four prints — Sirens Calling, Fresh Squeezed!, Resort Escape Floral, and Palm Beach Jungle — are exclusive to the collab. If you’re having a hard time deciding between the four, Sirens Calling is inspired by the Starbucks logo we all know and love, so this print is definitely the most on brand. If you’re thinking $40 seems steep for a water bottle, first, S’well bottles are known for keeping hot drinks hot for 12 hours and cold drinks cold for 24, and second, this is a limited edition Lilly collab, so unless you want to drop trip digits buying these secondhand on eBay later, you might as well pony up now. Besides, they make for some really great Instagrams, and you really can’t put a price on that.
If you think you’re lucky, you can enter to win (seriously!) one of the bottles for free on the Lilly website, but otherwise, you’ll have to reload your Starbucks card on Wednesday like the rest of us to start getting your daily hydration in style. If you need a Galentine’s day gift or an excuse to treat yo self, this is quite literally a once in a lifetime opportunity. Alternatively, you can forward this article to your boyfriend tomorrow after you convince him that he completely screwed up your Valentine’s Day (even if it was absolutely perfect in every way). If he buys you one, at least refrain from dumping him this week. If he buys you all four, keep him forever..
