6. 1st Day of Kindergarten Survival Kit – Send him to his first day of Kindergarten with one full of warm double-chocolate brownies for his teacher with hopes that Mrs. Steinburg doesn’t lock him in a closet until the bus comes back to get him at 2:45. Try it. 


7. Hostess Gifts – Stuff it with  a box of wine.  Well darn, it just happens to be a perfect fit. It’s a great little gift. Just monogram it with the initials of your hostess, or the date and initials of the newly engaged couple for the shower.


8. Birthday Party Favors – They’re great for collecting loot from the pinata, to use as a take-home box for a giant sprinkled cupcake, a musical chairs prize carrier, to hold a wet bathing suit, or just plain empty. Adding a monogram design of the birthday party theme (we’re back at the firehall this year) or each individual’s name would be really neat, too.


9. Box Turtle Holder – You never know what they’ll find in the backyard!


10. Easter Basekt  – They look great stuffed with Easter grass, candy, a chocolate bunny and glittery eggs popping out of the top–and of course, a sweet monogram on the front of the bag.  After Easter, the children can use it as a lunch box…what a great idea!

You know graduation is right around the corner.  And we know you adore Lilly.  So they have brought us the perfect collection.  A few dresses are now in the shop for you to try on.

A little note from Lilly:  ‘Being bold & bright is always a Lilly girl’s motto and sometimes WHITE makes that statement just as dramatically.  Pattern, pattern & more pattern is how we make our white dresses so special.  And though we know you love us for our hand-designed prints our patterns truly are just as special – each one is hand designed by our (amazing, fabulous!!) in-house print (and pattern, we suppose) designers.  That means, what you see at Lilly cannot, we repeat, cannot be found anywhere else!!’

We went to the markets with one thing in mind…to find a new line of children’s clothing particularily one that had a great selection of babies and boys clothing.  We found one and bonus ~ they also make maternity!  A first for us.  Well let me introduce to you our new pal Laura…


‘Long before I had a family of my own, I couldn’t help but notice what little option there was to dress stylishly when pregnant. It was 1993 and I decided a revolution in maternity fashion was needed.

I was living in France where I fell in love with the Breton style which had also inspired Coco Chanel. So with just £50,000 from the sale of my first business – but a wealth of determination and passion for design my very own clothing line was born. I worked 70-80 hours a week on very little pay for the next 10 years and had two children without being able to take any proper maternity leave. But I had a niche market, a good product and an enthusiastic team, who are all still with me to this day.

By listening to our customers, we learnt early on that it was individuality, quality without high prices and reliable customer service that you want above all else.

It’s not always been easy but I believe the key to our success and your loyalty is down to our design and innovation; attention to detail and pride in our work; and our ethical business practices.’
