FROM ME TO YOU

Are you kidding us? December? Where the *bliep* did 2012 gone…. But hey, we have never been the sort of people to stand still for too long. Team Lily already has his foot firmly in the year 2013. The last few months we have been carefully picking out the new Spring/Summer collection for you Fine Ladies, and boy does it look stunnishing! But first things first. Before we start dreaming about Spring, we’ve got some Festive Parties to plan! December 1st we officialy declare Party Season open chez LILY. With a nice selection of gifts – some chocolate for your BFF, a nice silk scarf for Mum, something glitzy for yourself – we’ve got that part of your Christmas Missions covered. And for that Perfect Dress?? Oh well, let’s just say we have outdone ourselves with this years Party Collection. It is looking better then ever, with a Style for everyone! We’ve got the retro dress, the sultry bodycon dress, the peplum, the elegant pantalon suit, the flowy sweet dress, the glitterfrock, the cool jumpsuit, the golden jeans, the beaded top, … Yup the list is Endless! ☺ Yes, 2012 has proven to be a tricky one. Closing down our lovely Tweed shop was a kick in the face. But to be completely honest, we will be remembering 2012 as a year to be especially thankfull for the things that really matter! So here goes. I would like to say thanks for: k My BFF becoming my Businesspartner. Ellen D has taken Oostende by storm with our Boutique by the Beach. And all that while being Very Pregnant. One tough cookie, that Lady! k My Lily DreamTeam! We really do have the prettiest, loveliest, kindest and most clever girls working here! Dagmara, Enisa, Maaike, Lieze, Stephanie, shall I go on? k Miss Ellen T proving to be our Secret Weapon in just about everything. The Girl With The Perfect Hair is so multitalented it almost hurts. And with so much going on in the shops, she has become irreplacable. k All of our Small Business colleagues, because yes, boutiques like ours with a personal touch and feel are in fact The Future. k You, you, and yes, you…. Thank you for shopping with us, celebrating with us, telling us where to improve, and keeping us on our toes. Without your trust and loyalty Lily simply wouldn’t exist. So clap your hands if you’re a LILYette, you deserve it. ☺

Love, Kelli

// BOLOGNA Ten to five in the morning, that hurts! But in caffeine we trust and we're off to Bologna! Having no clue what to expect from Bologna, we rented a (not so) very stylish City Cruiser and discovered the city. Smoothin' along Bologna's Boulevards we spotted Paulo's Pizzeria and had a big as Pizza Del Giorno for lunch. Hmm, DE-LI-CIOUSS! In the afternoon we said our yellow City Bikes goodbye and went on by foot. We came across some nice Piazza's and took a short break in the sun. (@the sun: Well hello my old friend, we finally meet again. It was about time!) The shops kept on calling our names, so after Kelli and I plundered Oysho (and Johan waited patiently outside), we went back to our Hotel. There, we put on our Comfy Hotel Slippers, crashed on the sofa and watched Jersey Shore while munching on McFlurry's. We had a ball! Having said all of that, the main purpose of our trip was finding some fabulous new stuff for you Lily'ettes! And boy, did we succeed! ;) The new goodies will arrive just in time for the Holidays. So be prepared and start saving those well earned euro's, Ladies! ;)
