Dig out the Winter Wardrobe...but Don't Forget the Rest!

Hey Ladies-
While it is no surprise that seasons are changing, especially here in the midwest, the first bitterly-cold, bone-chilling breezes are always a shock to the system. Especially now that it is November, I find it time to hunt through storage and pull out all the big bulky sweaters, wool socks, and outerwear...
Even though winter may be grayer, colder, and gloomier in regards to weather and often-times fashion choices, we do not need to fall into that pattern again this year!
I started brainstorming a few ways to remain vibrant, stylish, fun, and playful even during the long winter months and I thought they may help inspire you a bit to keep your spirit and style up this season-
  1. Don't pack away those colorful camis-even a small pop of color beneath a neutral top can liven up both your wardrobe and your day

  2. Keep mixing it up with fun accesories like jewelery, headbands, purses, hats/gloves, and fingernail polish; it is no time to get boring!

  3. Try a new fragrance-it's an inexpensive way to spice up your everyday

  4. Keep active-that natural, healthy glow cannot be outdone! Don't let cold weather be your excuse to hibernate-get a new workout video or try a fun aerobics class!

Ladies don't let these chillier months get you down-just think of them as a new opportunity to express yourself and stand out from the dreary backdrop!!

Chicago Store Update!

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Boston's new store manager, Tania! She was in Chicago for two days of training and meeting everyone at the Chicago Store as well as at Lill's HQ. Among many things Tania and I talked about was our 7th annual Holiday VIP party taking place on Thursday November 11th at both the Chicago and Boston boutiques. We can't wait to kick off the holiday season in our stores on the 11th - hope to see you there!

As Seen In...

Hi all –
Robin here to give you a quick update on some of the fun press we’ve seen lately here at 1154 LILL Studio! So much to share:

As seen IN:
As you may have seen on our website – we were chosen for InStyle Magazine’s Best of the Web guide and couldn’t be more thrilled! (Pick up the November issue – on stands now with the amazing Rachel McAdams on the cover J) Our
ERINN clutch in flocked houndstooth was featured alongside our write-up. Snap one up while we still have this luxe fabric in stock!

As seen ON:
Access Hollywood’s Laura Saltman devoted her “Dish of Salt” segment to all things Baby over the weekend of October 30th and 31st! She announced her own pregnancy on-air (Congrats, Laura!) and ran video of the “Design a Bag for a Cause” party that reality star Tenley Molzhan hosted the other week. Tenley helped Laura design a SUSAN diaper bag for baby-to-be. Bags designed at the party are being sold on our site with $10 of each going to the Young Survival Coalition. Check them out here!

Soon to be seen…
We sent bags to New York and LA for Editorial preview events last week and had a great reaction from Editors and Stylists alike! Us Weekly, InTouch, Martha Stewart Weddings, Self, Brides, Real Simple, E!, and many more grabbed samples for stories. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that 1154 LILL will make the cuts. Think good thoughts for us!

We hope to have more to share with you soon! Thanks for being such amazing fans.
