A Red Stamp

I’m hanging on the word catalogue here in the way a catalog would be stamped with an official mark to register something? Perhaps to indicate something important? By why the white lilies? Does she mean white lies and that the catalog is filled with secrets and gossip and rumor? And if there is no white lie then there is no need to catalogue it? Like a police officer recording a crime?
