Now it's easier and more fun to stay safe in the sun
Lily-Lark launches the new Lark parasol, hand fans, and 16 beautiful new prints.
Think of LARK as our signature line’s little sister: a slightly simpler parasol design at a gentler price point. But LARK still has style and attitude all her own! We worked intensively with our artisan partners in Thailand to make sure LARK could be produced without skimping on the quality and style Lily-Lark is known for. And with eight prints unique to the line, there’s a LARK for every wardrobe, personality, and occasion.
You’ll find Lily-Lark’s signature details across both lines of parasols: a stunning, artisan-made bamboo frame, an eye-catching, artist-designed canopy, and a matching carrying case that makes it a snap to bring your parasol along, whenever and wherever you might need some shade.
Most importantly, LARK provides the same level of sun protection as our signature line. With a canopy made of UPF 50+ fabric, any Lily-Lark parasol will protect you from over 99% of the sun’s UV rays.
The Lark parasol uses a more traditional construction of gluing the fabric to the ribs. It has a seam in the fabric, unlike the Lily-Lark, which is one piece of fabric attached at the ends.

say hello to our new prints
From classic to fashion forward, glam to subtle, feminine to gender neutral…
There's a Lily-Lark signature or LARK print for every style, mood, and occasion. Maybe today you’re feeling playful like BIRDS AND BLOOMS or fierce like FLOW. Or will TURNAROUND become your personal go-to parasol that goes with everything?
We’ve carefully curated every high-art design across our parasol lines, offering prints that coordinate with current trends on the runway as well as timeless neutrals, so that every Lily-Lark parasol is as fashion-forward as it is functional.
There are sixteen prints to choose from in all.
Part of the LARK line, WASET was designed in collaboration with vintage fashion aficionada and Egyptologist Dr. Colleen Darnell, better known by her fans on Instagram as Vintage Egyptologist. WASET was inspired by art on the ceilings of tombs in the ancient city of the same name— the art dates to the 1300’s B.C.E.! It was reinterpreted for our parasols by artist Stefan Jans of the textile studio PRINTS OF ORANGE.
Join the Lily-Lark Fan Club!
There are no dues, no books to read, and… actually, there’s not really a club. But we do have a new addition to Lily-Lark: artisan-made bamboo fans, sporting the same beautiful fabric prints as our parasols.
The perfect complement to your parasol on a sunny day… stay cool in the shade of your parasol while out and about, then tuck it in its carrying case while indoors and flick open your fan. From your stuffy office to flamenco class, now you can accessorize with Lily-Lark even in places where open parasols are generally frowned upon.

How to open a 'sticky' parasol
Sometimes new bamboo parasols can be a little difficult to open. They need to be 'popped' open, which means to use gentle force to swiftly click it open. Check out our video on how to pop them open.
