Last but absolutely, certainly NOT least, we are featuring the 4th of the Pink Palm locations- this time in the lovely college town of Charlottesville!  Since we have many former Wahoos in our midst, including our Senior Vice President of Retail, Marketing & Merchandising, we have a special place in our hearts for the ladies of Charlottesville <3.  And of course the team at Pink Palm is every bit as fabulous as every customer that walks in the door!  We’ll let them tell you more about themselves…

A little about us… The Pink Palm first opened in Charlottesville in 2004. Lilly lovers all over Central Virginia hunted down our tucked-away location. We have been the go-to boutique for University of Virginia students to find the perfect dress each year for football games and the annual Foxfield Races. After six years, Dave and Lizanne (our owners!) jumped on an opportunity to move to a more visible location. In February 2011, The Pink Palm opened its posh pink doors in the Barracks Road Shopping Center’s North Wing. We have since been introducing pink and green to Lilly-deprived souls and celebrating with long-time customers who love our new store and prime location!

Our Lilly Story: You’re never without a smile when walking into a Lilly store, especially The Pink Palm in Charlottesville. With pink and green walls, chandeliers and a lilly-fied palm tree, it’s like the sun shines during all four seasons in Virginia. In a small town, we love getting to know our customers on a more personal level to help them find the best styles that fit their needs. Sarah Fauerbach is the store manager and has been a Lilly Lover all her life! Assistant manager, Emily Woodrow came to us after working at a signature store in Alexandria, VA and her bubbly personality always keeps the store’s energy level high. With our small staff, you can be sure Susan, Missy, Katie, Charlotte, Lydia, Katelyn, JC, Lisel, or Lane will be here to help you!

Or favorite product from the Fall ’11 delivery is: The Adalie wrap dress! We love the style, prints and it is so flattering on any figure. Our customers love wrap dresses- especially with sleeves!

Did you know….One of our fabulous employees did an internship at Lilly Pulitzer’s corporate headquarters this Summer?? While we really missed her this summer, she was busy sharing her creativity and talent with the marketing department. We loved reading her blog posts and can’t wait to have her back this year to hear about her experience!

A favorite Customer Story: We love being located right next to the University of Virginia, helping the girls pick out dresses for all kinds of events, but this spring we got to share the biggest event of all with one of our customers. A UVA grad getting married in the University Chapel, came to us for all things Lilly! We outfitted all the bridesmaids and found fun party gifts for everyone involved! It was sure to be a magical day and best wishes to the bride and groom to love, laugh and wear Lilly!
