Emily's Pick of the Week!

Greetings LILL Fans! I was just strolling through our production area a few moments ago when a bag caught my eye. It was this darling ERINN designed online by Jamey B. from Wesley Chapel, Fl.

Interior and interior pocket lining

This bag has a great mixture of fall and summer colors. The exterior is punchy with an orange design in Tangerine Dream. The bright yellow Tweetie Bird fabric on the top band really makes this combination pop! Inside you will find tiny black and white stripes. Take a look in the secret pocket! Here is your summer of fun. The colorful and flowery Hula Girl fabric screams, “Take me on a summer trip!” Even if you are using ERINN in the fall, winter or spring, the Hula Girl pocket will remind you of bright and relaxing summer days. That’s what is so fun about the interior pocket on many of our bags, including ERINN. You can put any fabric that your heart desires in there because you’re the only person who is going to see it. If you need a little pick me up during the day, just unzip that zipper and BAM! There’s your secret pocket to brighten your day.

ERINN is a super cute over sized clutch. This bag is made for going out on the town! With ERINN you don’t have to leave anything behind. There is plenty of room for your makeup, cell phone, sunglasses, wallet, etc. Check out our ERINN style today.
Thanks and I look forward to giving you all my Pick of the Week next week!

SUSAN is our versatile shoulder tote with convertible strap that can also be worn as a messenger. Tote to work, carry baby's essentials ,or bring to the gym.

Pair with a JACK to store baby's travel wipes and diapers.

Our new wristlets: MADDIE and AUDREY + JANE (detachable wristlet/key chain).
