They were seeing yellow, sipping yellow and even wearing yellow at the Ladies Lemonade Day Ambassadors party hosted by Ralph Lauren and held in the Memorial area home of Lemonade Day founders Lisa and Michael Holthouse.

For the early-evening cocktail gathering, supporters sipped on the yellow-hued libation of their choice, selecting from Veuve Clicquot, homemade lemonade, lemon sorbet Cosmopolitans and limoncello. Many dressed in yellow and the door prize was a Ralph Lauren canvas Ricky tote in, what else, yellow. (Heather Mitchell was the lucky gal carrying home the $995 tote.)

 The Ralph Lauren team saw to every detail from the flowers to the table coverings to the informal modeling of the designer's spring line. 

As part of the fundraising effort that kicks of official Lemonade Day on May 5, Lisa autographed copies of her brand new children's book, It All Started with a Turtle, with all proceeds going to the non-profit project.

The Ralph Lauren team saw to every detail from the flowers to the table coverings to the informal modeling of the designer's spring line. They even worked with Swift + Co. on the lavish menu of hors d'oeuvres and those festive drinks.

Joining the party were Anne Wolf, Nancy Dinerstein, Sharon Brier, Mandy Kao, Diane Lokey Farb, Merele Yarborough, Marie Guillot, Duyen Huynh, Julie Eberly, Annie Amante, Claudia Contreras, Kimberly DeLape and Miya Shay.
