Intern Update

Posted on July 3, 2009 in More Fun by | 6 comments

This week Rhianna asked our lovely interns: If you could give every Lilly Lover in the world one item in our stores now, what would it be and why?

See what they answered!


Alyssa Palladino: I think every classy lady is in need of the perfect clutch, whether it’s for a casual day of shopping or a night on the town! The sealed with a kiss clutch is absolutely perfect for everyone’s lifestyle. The colors it comes in are fun, simple and elegant. And the awesome gold elephant embellishment with rhinestones is absolutely beautiful. I would give this to every person in the world whether they love Lilly or not! (Although, I cannot even comprehend how you could not love Lilly!)


Chelsey Breidenbach: I thought about this long and hard, and I’d have to say McKims.  I’ve been with the company for three months now and I have five pairs of McKims (whoops!).  They go with EVERYTHING and I’m addicted to them! I think I wear my white pair and my silver pair most often, but Swizzle Green is my favorite!   Everyone deserves a pair of McKims!


Hillary Smith: I would give every Lilly lover the Sydney Dress in white because it is simple, fun, summery, and it looks cute on everyone!


Elizabeth Fryer: I would give every Lilly lover the Florida Shift Basket Weave.  It is so comfortable and women of all ages can wear this.  It is a great summer shift and really reminds me of a Florida vacation.  It is just so cute and fun!!


Samantha Wolf: This is a hard one… But I think I would give everyone a pair of McKim sandals. I love every dress but if I gave every lilly lover the same dress it would be a bit much and not as unique. The McKim sandals on the other hand work with everything! I wear them practically every day because they are so comfortable and they dress up any outfit.


Hadley Deming: Yellow is a great color- especially for summer.  If I could give every Lilly lover in the world one item currently in stores now, I would give them the Brie Dress Printed (Dandelion Yellow Clouds of White).  This dress is a great color, with wonderful details and a flattering cut.  It’s always great when you buy a dress like this that you can wear formally for a summer cocktail party, and informally for a day around town!  And let’s be honest, who can go without that one great dress of the season?


Stephanie Zlotnick: If I could give every Lilly lover in the world one item currently in our stores now, it would be the “shell-shocked” clutch.  The detail and embroidery are exquisite, and it can be dressed up for fancier functions or dressed down for more casual evenings, and it has kind of a retro vibe, which I love.


Hadley Garrettson: If I could give every Lilly lover in the world one item currently in the stores now…it would be a set of the Lilly tumblers.  They are the perfect Lilly home accessory because they make even a glass of water look more exciting!  They are so simple but they really are fun and just complete the colorful life of a Lilly lover.  I really couldn’t survive without mine. 

I know that’s a silly one! But it is really true, and they are a great price and they are durable and just too much fun.


Lauren Johnsen: I would give every Lilly Lover a pair of Set In Stone Sandals because I absolutely love mine! They are adorable, comfy, and so fun to wear☺


Rhiana Wells: I would give every Lilly lover the Betsey Dress Bonanza! I love how the empire waist makes this dress flattering on just about everyone and I also adore this fun print! Never underestimate the power of wearing Lilly prints- they can almost always cheer you up when you’re having a bad day and make your good days even better!


Sarah Delricci: I would give everyone the xx Lilly Notecard Book, so that they could write and get to know other Lilly lovers around the world!

Well, I don’t exactly fall in the Lilly size range, but I take the sandals, purses, hame accessories and stationary!

I love and wear the McKim sandals. I would also love to wear some the other Lilly footwear but, unfortunately, the McKims are the only shoes that are made in sizes larger than ten. Help! Make Lilly footwear a true must have for ALL Lilly lovers.

I love some fun! Great Q&A. I hae found some vintage Lilly photographed in a rather un-Lilly way. I think you might want to check out the diversity of the Lilly appeal.
