Here is a little bit more about the rest of our summer intern class of ’09! We welcome them all to The Pink Palace! Click below to read about them!
My name is Samantha Wolf. I am originally from one of the tiniest towns ever, Auburn, PA (a bit northwest of Reading) but I have moved to Mount Airy! I go to Philadelphia University and will be a junior. I am a crazy double major in Fashion Merchandising and Accounting (you’ll find me doing summer class homework on my lunch breaks). I am interning in the Accounting department. I decided to intern at Lilly when my accounting professor introduced me to a Danni, the previous accounting intern. She hooked me up with Emilie and the rest is history! I love working in Lilly because it covers both of my areas of studies and there are live palm trees in the commons, what could be better? I recently finished doing a lot of work with the warehouse sale: working it, counting lots and lots of cash, etc. I look forward to pretty much everything I will do from here on out!
Hi! My name is Danielle Fichter. I am a Merchandising Intern this summer in the King of Prussia office! I am currently a marketing major at Penn State University and I will be entering my senior year in the fall. I love Penn State football, fashion and shopping, the beach, and traveling. I recently studied abroad in Florence, Italy where I took fashion classes and traveled throughout Europe in my free time. I chose to intern at Lilly Pulitzer because I would love to have a career as a buyer one day and I knew they would put me right to work, really giving me an idea of what a merchandiser does on a daily basis. I love it so far and I’m very excited to be learning from the merchandisers here at Lilly!
Hey Lilly Lovers! My name is Rhiana Wells and I am so excited to be interning for Lilly this summer! I am from Wyomissing, PA and I will be a junior English Major this coming fall! I recently transferred from Palm Beach Atlantic University to Washington College and while I love my new school and enjoy the academic challenge, I definitely miss Palm Beach(and my often C.Orrico Visits) very much! I really love incorporating Lilly into all of my favorite activities, which include figure skating, sailing, golfing and skiing! This summer I am interning in the Marketing Department and I absolutely love it so far! It is such a pleasure to work for and learn from such talented and sweet women in the Marketing Department like Trisha, Kate, Sarah and Lara. I wanted to intern at Lilly because I absolutely love Lilly in every single way and feel that when you wear Lilly, it is hard not to be happy and put smiles on others’ faces! I am really looking forward to all of my assignments this summer, but am most excited about helping with the Colorful Blog and getting every Lilly Lover to come together through the Lilly facebook page!
My name is Stephanie Zlotnick, and I am from Havertown, PA. This fall, I will be a senior in the Villanova School of Business, where I am majoring in Economics. Some of my interests include reading, cooking, and traveling. This summer I am interning in the distribution center. I decided to intern at Lilly to gain a sense of pulse in the fashion industry, as well as a first hand look at the execution of products and the distribution channel. Currently, I am working on e-commerce orders.
My name is Jill Merrigan and this past May I graduated from St. Lawrence University. I majored in English and completed a concentration in writing. I am originally from Massachusetts but now I live in NYC and I love it. At St. Lawrence, I played field hockey, was an avid runner, and a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. I learned about the opportunity to intern here at Lilly through a Kappa alumna, Kate Ackermann, the Director of Licensing at LP. Ever since I was a young girl I have loved Lilly Pulitzer and each season I get excited to see all the new prints and styles. I am interning in the licensing department and I am looking forward to working with PR team on new marketing strategies for the licensed Lilly products. I have only been here a week but I already love my job and can’t wait to be more involved in the office.
Hi! My name is Lauren Johnsen, and this fall I will be a senior at the University of Virginia – studying English and Media Studies! I was thrilled by the opportunity to intern at Lilly because I am interested in gaining experience in a corporate environment and because I absolutely adore the brand and the Lilly lifestyle! This summer I am working with the FABULOUS Linda Bradbury who is the Senior Vice President of Product, and each day here is fascinating, fun, and full of pink and green
