LILL's Elves

This time of year is always exciting here at LILL's headquarters because it's so evident that the holidays are here. Production is bustling with orders, our web store is flooded with phone calls and shoppers are loving their time spent at our stores. Here's a look at some holiday fun
around our production space...

A flurry of cut parts waiting to be assembled and handed off to sewing...

Imelda, from our Quality Dept.,
giving the bags
their final inspection...

& Vanessa prepping boxes for
shipping, from floor to ceiling.

As you can see, we're quite busy this time of year, but we'd have it no other way. Thank you all for your continued support and for giving the gift of creativity this holiday season!

Sneak Peek!

As many of you would assume, working for a custom handbag company has its perks, and one of them is having the opportunity to test drive a new style before it's officially released. This month everyone is clamoring for the chance to try out the Roxy, a new everyday style that debuts on January 3, 2011. Since you have to wait a couple more weeks to see it for yourself, we thought we'd give you a LILL holiday treat and share a sneak peek...

Maybe someone special will give you a LILL gift certificate this holiday season, and you'll be able to get yourself a Roxy to kick off the new year!

Oh Baby It's Cold Outside...

Greetings from Chicago! It's a chilly 12 degrees today (-6 with the wind chill) and boy is it cold. Like it or not, blasts of chilly weather and snow really do make it feel more like the holidays...and I specifically love how Chicagoans grin and bear it. There were still a number of shoppers on Michigan Avenue this weekend, and I have to give props to the Bears fans that not only sat through an entire game yesterday, but tailgated before hand. That's the spirit people!

Now, for those of you who'd prefer to do your holiday shopping from home...we're here to help! If you didn't already know, you can give the gift of LILL to others with a LILL gift certificate this holiday season. Not only do you not have to leave your house to get one, you can also have it sent electronically to your recipient if you'd like. A LILL gift certificate makes a great gift because while it's always nice to get a LILL bag, it's even better to give someone the experience of designing it on their own. See for yourself!

Here's a little something I designed for my wishlist. I hope Santa's reading this.
