Kylee had a special wish to be a Fashion Designer and the gang at Lilly Pulitzer helped made her day very special.
Kylee and her family arrived at the Pulitzer Pink Palace via a black stretch limo. She was greeted by fashion director, Janie Schoenborn and given a full blown office tour, starting with the famous LP distribution center. After touring the DC, Janie and Kylee worked their way around to Merchandising, Design, and Product Development.
Janie introduced Kylee to some new faces and walked her through the process of how a Lilly shift is created.After the tour, Kylee was met by print designers Stacey and Paige, as well as our Fashion Designer, Abraham who sat with Kylee to design Lilly prints and colorful dresses in the print design studio. This is where Kylee’s true passion for design came out…you should have seen the colorful styles she was drawing!! The tour, painting and designing had us work up quite an appetite! Lilly veteran, Pat Borjeson, helped prepare a wonderful spread of PB & J and pink and green floral cupcakes. Kylee snacked while she sat with Janie, the print designers, and met some of the other Lilly ladies that work in our offices who stopped by to say hello.
Next, was a part of the day that was a bit of a secret. Kylee was surprised her after lunch by being whisking her away in the Lilly Jeep to the King of Prussia store for a SHOPPING SPREE! Kylee tried on everything from bathing suits to skirts to dresses…and because no one could pick a favorite, she received them all! Even Mom received a dress so they could match. Kylee walked out with 4 BIG shopping bags (bigger than she was!) and a huge grin on her face.
All in all, it was an incredibly magical day for Ms. Kylee but all of us at the Pulitzer Pink Palace who got to meet Kylee and be a part of her special day would probably say it was just as magical for us. A big THANK YOU to our friends at the Make a Wish Foundation for allowing us to be part of it and to everyone who helped make Kylee’s day so special.
