Here’ s little something our marketing intern Rhianna put together:
Now that you have met all of us summer interns, we thought we’d give you a chance to get to know us some more! This week we’ll tell you a bit about the day our adventure with Lilly started as we finished the sentence, “When I first found out I would be interning for Lilly this summer I__________.”
Elizabeth Fryer: When I first found out I would be interning at Lilly this summer I WAS SO EXCITED I CRIED AND CALLED MY DAD AND MOM.
Alyssa Palladino: When I first found out I would be interning at Lilly this summer I ran around my house jumping and screaming, my roommates thought something was wrong until I told them then they were excited with me! I called my parents right away to tell them and they were really excited too, then I called my boyfriend who responded “oh, that’s cool”, not the best response, but I was still thrilled anyway!!!! Then I updated my facebook status! (haha, I had to brag to everyone else, of course!)
Hadley Deming: When I first found out I would be interning at Lilly this summer I cleaned out my wardrobe to get ready for a fun, bright, Lilly-filled summer!
Chelsey Breidenbach: When I found out I would be interning at Lilly Pulitzer, I ran to the car where my boyfriend was waiting and then jumped up and down (with joy of course). Then I sent a text message to each and every one of my friends to let them know how awesome my internship would be before heading to a celebratory dinner!
Jill Merrigan: When I first found out I would be interning at Lilly I went shopping for vintage Lilly. They say that Lilly lasts forever!
Rhiana Wells: When I first found out I would be interning at Lilly this summer I immediately started jumping up and down crying I was so happy! I then called my mom, who also started crying, and my friend Maggie(who was the most excited about me applying for the internship!). The next step was to send out a mass text to all of my friends, of course! That whole day I couldn’t stop smiling! When I met Lilly herself last year I told her I was hoping to intern here at HQ and she was so thrilled to hear all the details of my interview. Now I am the one that’s thrilled to be spending three months learning more about my favorite thing in the world: Lilly!
Danielle Fichter: When I first found out I would be interning at Lilly this summer I was SO EXCITED!! I had just returned from studying fashion in Florence, Italy and was anxious to get to work! I couldn’t wait to meet the merchandisers and other interns!
Lindsay Mead: When I first found out I would be interning at Lilly this summer I was ecstatic! I was so excited, happy and speechless. I have been living and breathing Lilly for so long and have always dreamed of interning with them, turns out my dream came true. I have been working for them indirectly at a Via Shop for the last 5 years and now to be working at corporate is unbelievable. I am able to apply all I have learned in my internship thus far, plus learn a whole lot more. I am able to see how everything is designed, made, ordered, and shipped. I love knowing who is behind the scenes and to see and meet all of the talented individuals who bring it all together. It is truly amazing and I am so fortunate to be here!
Stephanie Zlotnick: the first thing I did when I found out I was interning at Lilly was visit their website and find out about all the exciting products and events!
Christine Kuehn: When I first found out I would be interning at Lilly this summer I… went straight to my closet to pick out my favorite Lilly outfit to wear on the first day!
Sarah DelRicci: When I first got the call from Kristen that I was offered the internship at Lilly, I was so excited! I ran around my sorority floor telling everyone, and I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to have this internship. After that I don’t remember exactly what I did, but it probably involved looking on the Lilly website to pick out all of the amazing clothes I knew I would be buying this summer!
Lauren Johnsen: When I first found out I would be interning at Lilly this summer I…
…became even MORE thrilled to be on spring break because I was in PALM BEACH! It was too perfect☺ I spent the week thinking about how excited I was to spend my summer working to help people enjoy the fabulous Palm Beach lifestyle regardless of their actual geographic location!
