Our VIP Party Winner & Love for the Petite Anglais Skirt


I am one very excited Lily Lady today! Not only did we finally come out with our Spring Petite Anglais Skirt (how adorable is this new ship print!?) but I get to announce our contest winner today for the VIP party on Friday.

I must say we have all enjoyed reading the amazing comments here at the studio over the past few weeks. Your posts were all so creative, personal and just so positive!! Choosing one Lily Lady was a very difficult task...

Of all the comments posted, there is a place in my heart for Susanna! Susanna won't be able to attend our Garage Sale because of her Dad's 90th birthday party and would have had to come all the way from Vancouver to be here... she actually popped into the Victoria shop when she was in town a few weeks ago and I must say I fell in love with this awesome teacher! Picking up one of our Port Dresses and chatting with me about her love for Lily I'm happy to invite her to our private party on Friday night!!

Suzanna, I don't actually have your contact information so please send us an email at sales@smokinglily.com so that we can confirm your attendance.

Thanks again to all of you for your awesome posts... we better see all of you on Saturday shopping your little hearts out at the Charity Garage Sale... bye for now, Tee xo

ps - susanna means 'the fair lily' so perhaps it was preordained?

Oh my goodness I am such an idiot!!! I had no idea there was a possibility to win a pass to the VIP party. I am a HUGE Lily fan. I bought my first article when I was 19, 12 years ago, a white boat neck long sleeved t-shirt with a black fly screen printed on it. There was a unique black smudge on the fly which made the print truely one of a kind. That started my Lily addiction, a day does not pass when I don't where either a Lily scarf, skirt, cape, top, over thing, or carry my Annie Oakley gun print bag/wallety thing. Now why I would be so ever greatful to attend the VIP party. Well several things need to align in order for me to attend the garage sale...My husband is a fulltime student and has his first final exam on Saturday morning so my lovely 60 ys old Mom (who has health issues) has agreed to line up before breakfast for me. So then I need to get my two daughters fed and ready (youngest breastfed) for my fabulous inlaws to come over at an ungodly hour on Saturday morning to babysit until I return. Then I skip down to relieve my lovely (have I mentioned just how lovely she is) Mom and send her back to bed so I can continue waiting in line for a chance to score some Lily loot. Now I still have to keep my fingers crossed that my youngest daughter will be content to not nurse for several hours to allow me time to shop. If not I hop back on my broomstick empty handed to nurse said child. So you can see how me (my mom, inlaws, children, husband (happy wife happy life and all that) would greatly appreciate a VIP pass).
This is not a tale of woe but a tale of look at how lucky I am to have all these wonderful people in my life and please let a Lily lady have a break. If granted a VIP pass I promise to bring a bottle of my new favorite BC wine to share.

Your breastfeeding fan Emily
