I’m back! So sorry to have been away for so long – all healthy in this house! I’ve got a great post today, to welcome y’all back! This morning I had the honor to enjoy brunch with the President of Lilly Pulitzer, James Bradbeer. The other ten ladies and I had such a wonderful time getting to know Jim and hearing about his life (he has four boys!) and about Lilly Pulitzer’s line. We also had a lot of time to chat about Lilly’s upcoming lines and new ideas. Jim is a kind and welcoming man, and had such a comfortable presence when chatting with us. You could tell he was genuinely interested in what we had to say, and I felt as though our opinions mattered to him. Yet another reason I love Lilly so much! He kept referring to the “others” out there, and how some people just don’t get it, the bright colors and all, but us Lilly lovers do, and that that’s okay! Haha! It was such a neat experience, and I’m so glad I was able to attend!
Here are a few photos I captured at the brunch…
Jim wouldn’t stand in the front.
This photo just shows how much of a variety that Lilly carries. We were all wearing different Lilly!
How sweet are the tables? We celebrated Belk’s new logo (revealed today) with Mimosas. Yum!
We were also treated to some freebies, including a market tote and koozie.
What a treat!
My friend and employee for the Lilly Pulitzer section at Belk, Leigh Ann, thought the sun was messing up the photo, so she suggested another take. More pics with Jim, fine with me! 🙂
I’m so excited for the Resort collection to come out.
There’s a light blue Jonah dress that will be perfect to support my Carolina Tarheels!
Thanks again for a great opportunity! Oh, and do you think I even thought of telling the hubs why I was invited to this event? Not exactly.
The hubs asked: “Why were you invited?”
The answer I gave him: “Because they know how much I love Lilly!”
The REAL answer: “Because I spend a large amount of money on Lilly!”
Hope y’all are having a lovely Tuesday!
I’ve missed you!
P.S. Have you entered my giveaway
