You can not be shy if you are wearing something from Lilly Pulitzer. The store is full of bright pinks and blues and greens and even a little BLACK this year. I love color and was intrigued when I was asked if I wanted to try to design a pattern for Lilly for a First.
Lilly designer Jeff Mattia sat me down at the Suburban Square store in Ardmore, explained what makes a good Lilly pattern and I promptly made some little flowers and squiggles that were a mess.
Still, Jeff made a beautiful design for me while encouraging me to stop thinking and just paint. (You know I am not artistic in the least. A third grader could do better.)
I did learn that Lilly’s name is hidden on each piece of clothing. (You’ll see me trying to figure out where it is on the dress I was wearing.) I love the dress and check out the one at the end of the video. Yes, I bought my first Lilly. LOVE.
I have donated my art work to Lilly Pulitzer and told them to feel free to use my design…no charge.
Thanks to Pamela and the staff for a lovely first.
