a Lilly story


Remember this cool "Sneaky Tiki" Lilly tie that Landlocked Mermaid sent to me a couple of weeks ago? Well, hubby wore it to work again one day this week. He was seeing patients in his office that particular day. He always walks out to the waiting room to greet each patient and escort him/her into his office personally as it becomes their turn. Well, guess who was there in his waiting room??? None other than our favorite fun fashionista Ms. Lilly Pulitzer! She was not there as a patient (if she were then I wouldn't be allowed to tell you due to privacy laws), but one of her family members was, and Lilly was just accompanying this person to his office. Well, darn! I wish that I had been there with my camera, but I didn't even find out about it until that evening. Hubby doesn't realize that information of this sort needs to be texted immediately to me so I can feign acute sickness at work and run over with phone camera in hand!!!
You'll just have to take my word for it!
He said that everyone noticed his Lilly tie and of course they loved it!

And to think he was perfectly dressed and must have lit up her day... Darling, I too went to Loyola in Maryland and went to Catholic school for grammar, high , college and graduate school.. We have too much in common!

PS that tie is in the right place! It is getting more use than it did around here. I am soo happy to see how much he likes it. It looks great on him.

That's incredible! What a neat story, I bet she absolutely loved his tie :) (now he should have said that his wonderful wife picked it out and oh she should totally have lunch with you on Tuesday)
