The photos were evidently in an employee’s work space. A caption added to the photo after publication says the cartoons are “personal illustrations of an employee,” and a spokesperson for New York tells Quartz the photo was taken “in an employee’s office.”

“These illustrations were the work of one individual and were posted in her personal work area,” Jane Schoenborn, vice president of creative communications at Lilly Pulitzer, said in a statement. “While we are an employer that does encourage people to decorate their own space, we are a female-dominated company and these images do not reflect our values. We apologize for any harm this may have caused.”

Whether or not the drawings were displayed in a public space in the Pulitzer HQ, they’re certainly public now, and do nothing to help Lilly Pulitzer’s image as being insensitive toward its plus-size customers. The brand recently drew plenty of ire when it announced that plus-size items from its collaboration with Target, a collection that drove enough interest that it crashed Target’s website, would only be available online.
