Rated 5 out of 5
by BethBH These shorts are a blast!
There are some things that make you go boom and leave it to Lilly Pulitzer to do just that with these shorts. The fit was fabulous and the playful pattern made wearing them even more fun. And once the sun went down, the glow-in-the-dark stars exploded to light up the night! Hooray for the red, white, and blue. And hooray for Lilly Pulitzer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toby These shorts are the best!
Absolutely positively the cutest summer shorts ever! They are (like all Lilly products) extremely well made. The fit is true to size and the colors are vibrant. They wash well and hold their shape. The best part is that if you wear these shorts in the bright sunlight, the white starbursts will glow in the dark at night!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 Returned because of color
I love the fit of these shorts, but I returned them because online the colors in the shorts looked different. It appeared the shorts were navy with white, aqua and light red, but the light red turned out to be more melon pink. They weren't what I was looking for to wear on July 4th. Would have loved the pattern had it been traditional red, white and blue. When I returned them to the store, the salesperson explained that the melon pink is as red as Lilly Pulitzer gets and they were meant to be whimsical. Ok, I get that, but still wasn't what I wanted. Looking forward to next year's July 4th print. Maybe it will be something I can work with :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by missjackson So cute! But they run quite large
I'm a somewhat recent Lilly convert, so this is my first pair of Callahan shorts. I thought that the firework pattern (and glow in the dark feature) was so cute that I couldn't resist! Plus, as someone with large thighs compared to my waist/hips, the style looked very promising. I am usually either a 4 or a 6 in bottoms (I wear in a 4 in JCrew shorts), and after consulting the size guide and much hemming and hawing, I ordered a 6. They came yesterday and I love them... but they are really quite big (I can almost pull them off my hips; although I'm narrow hipped). However, they are adorable. The fabric is wonderfully lightweight, and I can tell that they style is going to be perfect once I get the right size. I re-ordered in a 4 right away and I hope that I get them before the holiday! Anyway, I can't speak for the other patterns, but in the firework pattern I would recommend selecting the smaller size if you're between two sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by summer28 Cute print...but didn't glow!
I bought these shorts to wear for a 4th of July party. I wore them all day sightseeing in direct sunlight for most of the day and was really excited about seeing them glow at night, but they never did! Disappointing, but the print is still really cute, so I'll be wearing them again next year for sure. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Liz1288 Cute - but don't glow
These shorts are very cute and run true to size -- however, they do NOT glow in the dark as advertised. Like, not at all. Even after "charging" them in direct sunlight for several hours. Very disappointing, as I was excited about this feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JLBMomof2 Fun fourth of July shorts
These were great shorts to wear for the fourth of July. They fit like all my other Callahan shorts from Lilly. The fabric is lighter in weight than most of my other shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrsNikki super cute!
Super cute shorts! Fits larger like most callahans do (I am normally a 6-8 but the 4 in these fit perfectly). Print is super cute and great for summer! The glow in the dark isn't that great, it barely glows and you have to be in a pitch black room for them to show up but it doesn't really bother me. One thing i wish is that they were a bit thicker material. They crease very easily, unlike my 'In the Garden' callahans that are very thick, nice material. Thats my only complaint!
