Sorry about your grandmother. I am not sure how pastel a lavender you are looking for, but I love this dress. The model is 5’8″ so I imagine it would be longer/more modest on a more average height woman. I would probably wear a black cardigan, too.

I’m sorry to hear about your grandmother.  What a lovely way to celebrate her life though!

And your family is in luck….Lavenders a popular color this spring! I’m seeing it everywhere! Do you have a Forever 21 store nearby? The ones over by me actually have a whole section in purples & lavenders.

Lulus has a couple of dresses in shades of light purples, dusty roses, etc but here is a true lavender dress:

and another fun looking lavender one too (but I’m not sure its true to color, it doesn’t say:

Modcloth.com also has a ton of light purplish/dusties in stock

I love the artistic vibe to this one:

and this one has a sweet funky bow on it:

this one MAY be too much for a funeral, but like you said, Grandma was fun and spunky!

Instead of a dress, what about a lavender skirt? I’m tall and can usually find more “appropriate” skirts easier than dresses.

Or, have you tried Target? They have a lot of super cute dresses lately.

Maxi (not sure about the color though): http://www.target.com/Xhilaration-Juniors-Smocked-Back-Dress/dp/B002VXTEVK/ref=br_1_7?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=1&searchView=grid5&searchNodeID=2086049011&node=2086049011&sr=1-7&searchRank=price&searchPage=2&searchSize=30&id=Xhilaration%20Juniors%20Smocked%20Back%20Dress&qid=

This one might be closer to the color you’re looking for – but it only comes in a 6: http://www.target.com/Merona-Collection-Elanor-Shift-Dress/dp/B002V9E1PI/ref=br_1_2?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=1&searchView=grid5&searchNodeID=2086049011&node=2086049011&sr=1-2&searchRank=price&searchPage=3&searchSize=30&id=Merona%20Collection%20Elanor%20Shift%20Dress&qid=
