My favorite holiday is here! That’s right, it’s time to celebrate National Wear Your Lilly Day! How cool is it that this is a holiday? Yet another example of how special and extraordinary the Lilly brand is–it’s a lifestyle, not just a collection.
I worked in a Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store for 3 years, and managed the store for the majority of that time. It’s hard work, but just as dreamy and magical as you can imagine–working for a brand that celebrates the good things in life, like happy hour and bright colors. I miss the Lilly life, but feel that to some extent I get to experience it again every time I wear a piece from my closet. My best friend is a manager at the Nashville Lilly store, and so in a way I get to be a part of that world again, which I love!
My dream was always to own a signature store in my hometown of Owensboro, Ky, and so far some things have stood in the way of that, but I will always be working toward that goal. No matter how many people try and stop you, it’s important to stick to your dreams and hold on to the hope that if it’s supposed to happen, it will.
I’ve met so many amazing people from the Lilly corporate world as well as the signature store world that I admire and appreciate so much, and I have nothing but amazing things to say about them. I mean, come on–their marketing/social media team is killing it!
With all of that being said, let’s celebrate National Wear Your Lilly Day! As I sit here in my flamingo printed dress, I encourage you to check out the new arrivals and my fav pics I’ve included below! Those of you who have worn Lilly before understand that it’s the most special feeling–as vain as it sounds, you feel pretty and happy because the clothes do just that, make you happy.
