November 7, 2011

What's so important about November 7, 2011 you may ask? Well it was my first day working at Lilly! I was super excited (and nervous) all day at my normal job. I have never really worked in retail before, except for one winter break but that was at a home decorating store so that doesn't really count, so I had no idea what to expect. But it was perfect and everyone is so nice! There is not much to learn in retail so my training went rather fast. There are obviously things that will take time to learn, like using the register, aka which enter button to use (yes there is a differece! haha) and product names but I think I can catch on rather fast. And to top it all off I made it out of the store without spending hundreds of dollars! As expected, we have to wear the clothes, they don't have to be that seasons which is super nice, and unfortunately for me all of my lilly attire is summer attire :( but I did get a few things and have a very longgggg wish list right now! Can't wait to get that first pay check and start spending it! Here's what I got and what I plan on getting......
Cassie Slub Dress- perfect for hanging out it, wearing to the beach or even to work. It was a must have. The bag is the 2011 Restort Travel Bag which I have every intention of buying as well

Skip On It Murphee Scarf. Looks adorable with the black dress.

Lunden Sweater
Wish List: Sweater- Lunden Sweater in Azalea Pink, Pants- Main Line Straight Leg Jean


Jeanette Dress
Wish List: Dress- Jeanette Dress, Clutch- Opening Night Clutch, Shoes- Swinging on a Star Heel Glam Snake

It's official I'm a Lilly employee

Some may think I'm crazy because I already have a full time job, but I am quite bored after work seeing as though most of my friends from college don't live near me so I decided to get another job. I thought about catering or bar tending but why not work somewhere you love?! It got me thinking, hmmm if I could work anywhere where would it be? Well there is the mall right near my office building, and there is a Lilly Pulitzer store there, what could be more perfect?! So I applied for a job and got hired! I'm super excited to start working there, my first day is Monday Novemeber 7. I can't wait to be able to buy all new clothes (finally I have an excuse to go over board at Lilly) and to help people find the perfect outfit. Whether it be helping people who are already lilly lovers or people who are coming into the store for the first time, I just can't wait to be there and helping others develope a love for Lilly like I have!

Now as an official spokesperson for Lilly, I suggest everyone check out their new 2011 Restor Collection. I already have a huge list of things that I have to get!
