Lilly Loves Fabrics!

The Holidays are drawing closer. Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I'm in need of things to accent my home and create that warm, inviting feeling that says "sit, relax, stay a while...".
I’m feeling a little crafty and would like to whip up some pillows and table accents. What should I use? Where can I find great fabric to help accent my home?

LILL, of course! 1154 LILL now sells cut-yardage of fabric. (in-store and thru LILL on Location reps now – online SOON!) The same fabric that LILL offer as options for your custom handbag! LILL scours the country for the finest designer textiles and has had so many people interested in purchasing it over the years and is excited to be able to extend this segment of the line to you (and me!).

LILL is calling the new fabric-sales division “LILL By The Yard” and it’s exciting to see the creativity behind the projects that people are coming up with! LILL fabrics have been purchased to create big lounging pillows, table runners, stretched-fabric artwork, wedding accessories, slipcovers, drapes and much more!

Got any good home decorating ideas that I can use LILL Fabric for to spice up my home d├ęcor?
Email me - lilly@1154lill.com, I'd love to hear your ideas!

Meet DREA!

Did you ever wonder how LILL Bags are named?

All of the styles at LILL are named for real people. LILL Staff get to choose the names of the new bags (it’s a rotation of bag-naming, based on how long they’ve been with LILL). Our own Jess Audey, Inventory and Merchandising guru extraordinaire, chose to name this style after her cousin Andrea (she goes by Drea). So sweet!

Since this is the place to find the inside scoop on LILL, I would like to introduce you to the name behind the bag. Meet the real Drea! Namesake of our newest style, DREA!

Drea (left) with her cousin Jess (right)

For all of us to get to know Drea a little better, I’ve asked her a few questions:

Besides your namesake, what’s your favorite LILL style: ANDI—carry it all the time. It is extremely hard for me to change purses. Love a purse where you can carry everything you will ever need.

What’s in the bag? Sunglasses, cell phone, lip gloss, cigarette holder (like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s), mirror, some cover up and everything else I can fit in it. And what makes me a dork: my glasses, and a little orthodontist kit for my braces.

Do you have any pets? I wish. I want to steal my cousin’s (Jess) cats.

What are your favorite Movies or TV shows? Audrey Hepburn movies like Sabrina, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and My Fair Lady. I love classics and also movies showing classical periods in time like Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. Also V for Vendetta, High Fidelity, The Birdcage, Goonies, all the Pirate movies, X-Men trilogy, The Incredibles, and the many Disney movies I have watched repeatedly with my little brother. I don’t have a lot of time for TV shows but I do love Project Runway when I get to watch it.

Ever met anyone famous? I met Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters at a small little concert venue in Cleveland.

What’s the last great book you read? The Devil in the White City by Eric Larson. Actually still reading but awesome. Most of my reading time is consumed up by mindless textbooks.

Who do you consider your hero and mentor? I can’t name one person as my hero or mentor but just that I admire and look up to my amazing friends and family and love the support they give. They have made me who I am today. But my favorite super heroes are Rouge and Gambit from X Men and Spider-Man.

What’s your favorite food? Anything Mexican!!! I am addicted to chips and salsa.

Any hobbies or Activities important to you? My life is pretty much dedicated to work and school. But before I sold my life away, I loved to swim competitively, dance ballet and work backstage at a local theater doing sound and lights.

Thanks Drea! It was good getting to know you a little better!
