HOL I DAY L OOK BOOK 2017

MEMORABLE GIFTS & GOODS for HEARTFELT MOMENTS


Dear FRIENDS, I will be honest. So far, 2017 for Lily & Val has been a whirlwind. We’ve experienced some wonderful highs and exciting growth, but that hasn’t come without its lows, intense pressure, trial and error, and mountains of work. The realities of running a small business often make my head spin. In this season of my life, what I’m craving most is slow. I’m craving simplicity. When it came time to design the 2017 holiday collection, the pull of my heart was to create something to encapsulate this concept - a refreshment, a breath of fresh air. “All is Calm” - I couldn’t shake those words. It’s the opposite of what I was feeling, but it’s what I desire and hope for all of you this holiday season and beyond. In the designs, I turned to natural elements and their simplistic, comforting beauty. Trading bells, whistles and glitz for cozy, minimalist, striking, and raw. We also introduced our brand new Holiday Gift Tracker! This special notebook was created to help you plan your gifting and card sending, bringing some organization to such a busy time of year. (I wanted to make this notebook because I needed it!) Perhaps you too are going through a period of hustle and busy and just need to pause. I hope this collection serves as a reminder to refresh your soul with the simple things and what matters most. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and warm holiday season,

Founder & Creative Director

Darkness becomes beautiful in wintertime. A silent road sprinkled with snowflakes tells everyone to stay inside, sit by the fire, and bond over old stories that never get old. There is a sweet serenity to a quiet, snowy night, when all is calm and yet the stars are so bright.


Featuring the classic film’s namesake, the It’s A Wonderful Life chalk print inspires more coziness and personal connection for this holiday season.
