I’ve worked at Lilly Pulitzer for over a year now, however, not once have I bought a shift since I began working there. In past years, prior to working at the Lilly P. Short Pump Mall location, I would get a new shift and an agenda for my birthday, because it had usually fallen around National Wear Your Lilly Day, so I’d get a gift with purchase as an extra bonus.
I love working at Lilly, I buy lots of separates. I buy some t shirt dresses but I’ve never LOVED one of the shift dresses to the point of actually deciding to purchase it. I loved the YGR Ryder Shift, but I wasn’t a fan of the orange details, while the Mila shift was great, its a very straight up and down dress that I don’t love on me. I’m 5’2 and my body type is just a little different, which I love, but Lilly dresses do not always loveme back.
Since working at Lilly, there has never been a Macfarlane Shift in the store, and when Lilly came out with Home Slice in Seaside Aqua, I decided I had to splurge. The lace detailing reminds me of vintage Lilly and the Silhouette allows for a little more wiggle room.
