Lotus and Lilly - Day Three of Shopaholic Birthday Giveaway Days!
TGIF, Shopaholic friends!
Welcome to Day Three of Shopaholic Birthday Giveaway Days! I'm hosting these in honor of my 40th birthday coming on August 12...it's a fun way to stop thinking about getting older, and profile some of my favorite designers, websites, stores and brands! HA
Thanks so much to one of my favorite designers of all things handmade with Lilly fabric - Lotus and Lilly - for sponsoring our 3rd giveaway! Kristina is the designer (and brains) behind this operation, and she is a pleasure. All her items are handmade and the quality is immediately apparent. I invite you to check out the website HERE. Lotus and Lilly carries headbands, clutches, bracelets, hair clips, etc. All items are made with either current or vintage Lilly Pulitzer fabrics. Lilly lovers are crazy for her fun items!
For today's giveaway, Lotus and Lilly is providing a 1" headband and matching clutch bag in one of my favorite prints, Rainbow Patch. This fabric will match sooooo many things you already own, and you'll reach for it over and over again! One lucky Shopaholic reader will receive both items, see the photos below.
In addition to providing us with a gorgeous and generous giveaway, Lotus and Lilly is also offering a "Shopaholic Special" to all readers! For the next seven (7) days, a 20% discount will apply to any purchase from the website (link HERE). To take advantage of this unheard-of discount, please enter code "Happy40thLori" when placing your online order. Remember, it's only good for the next seven days, so don't delay! :-)
Need new headbands for school? A clutch for Rush? A birthday or holiday gift (hey, it's never to early to think about holiday shopping!) This is a great time to pick them up. You'll love Lotus and Lilly's handmade items. They are absolutely fabulous! I receive compliments every time I walk out of the house in one of my headbands!
Also, I wanted to mention a very cool thing you might not know about Lotus and Lilly's designs. Kristina has about 20 items in the Museum of Lifestyle and Fashion History exhibit, in Boynton Beach, FL. The exhibit features: hair clips, bracelets, the Lilly fabric covered 9" wooden monogram letters (they requested an "L"), a box purse, clutches, headbands (of course) and a few other items. What an amazing honor for Lotus and Lilly! I feel special just knowing her! Be sure to check out the exhibit if you're in the local area, or will be traveling that way.
Do you see how excited I am to feature Lotus and Lilly? I love everything on her website, but I'm really coveting this clutch in the vintage print "Familia de Gato". What do you think? I love all the lion prints, guess it's because I'm a LEO. :-)
