Birthdays are a reason to have a party! It was just 5 years ago that I came to Lilly (I know, time flies- I feel like this has been my home forever!), and just 5 years ago that we opened our spectacular store in the King of Prussia mall. To celebrate, we invited all our friends, gave away goodies, snacked on Capitol Grill yummies and popped quite a few bottles of bubbly.
A couple of years ago, the print team and I started visiting stores and painting watercolors for customers. It was new to show off our prints being done first-hand and everyone loved doing it; and I think you all loved seeing it! Well celebrating Lilly Loves the Arts this year has brought an evolution to our artwork. A couple of months ago at the Ardmore opening, we decided to all paint one giant canvas- together!! (two at a time, rotating from painting to chatting with customers, to having a few toasts!) It is soooooo fuuun! We have now mastered the art of painting giant floral prints!
Every single day, my team’s artistic talent knocks me off my feet. This is just another example of how special Lilly Pulitzer is. No one does what we do! The most amazing people love the individuality of the brand – it is just top-to-bottom, inside-and-out FUN. This was absolutely evident at last night’s event.
Cheers to Darcy, Margaret, Clare, Nancy, Steph, Pat…every single amazing person in the “KOP” store (we love you so so so much). We are so proud of the store, thank you for always smiling and making Lilly what it is!
