New job, new opportunities, new LOVE for Lill!

A fresh hello to all of you Lill fans from Anne, the new marketing intern. I am so genuinely excited to be a part of this wonderful team and ready to share some of my experiences along the way with you!
First off, I'll tell you a snip-it about me...

  • I'm a senior at Calvin College (located in Grand Rapids, MI).

  • I'm studying Business, Economics, and Marketing but my true passions are design and fashion.

  • How I got this opportunity is through a semester program that sets students up with internships and classes in the beautiful city of Chicago!
The past 3 or 4 weeks have been nothing short of a whirlwind but here are a few of the things I have already enjoyed:
  • Meeting some great people.

  • Eating indescribably good food.

  • Experiencing many sporting events and free forms of entertainment (seeing as i'm still a student and on a rather tight budget).

  • Learning so much from my job and already falling in love with a number of Lill's handbags, but I especially have my eye on the ERINN in Glamorous and anything in the new fabric Animal Instinct!

Hoping you have all have been enjoying this past week and that the next is filled with wonderful fall weather and activities to match!

Chicago Store Update!

It is hard to pick what is the most important wedding day accessory... the shoes or the bag? Our LILL bride Karin is not only going to have the coolest shoes on her wedding day thanks to Lori's Shoes, but a fun Holly bag to match! She was in the Chicago Store last Thursday to design a Holly Bag for her and one for her sister, the maid of honor. Karin's Holly is going to be in Sintra Garden with a Pearl Sateen Lining. The purple and beige tones in the flocked fabric accent all the same colors in the gems on her peep toe heels. She went with Fall Fields for her sister's Holly bag to bring in the fall colors of her wedding which is coming up in October! Best wish to Karin and her groom - We can't wait to see pictures of the complete look!
