It was back in April that I first discovered Lily & Me. We were away for the weekend at Ladram Bay in Devon, and we happened upon the House of Marbles. It was one of those wonderfully random places – a marble museum, tea shop and mini shopping centre all in one, stocking lots of lovely local brands, including Lily & Me.
I was drawn to the Lily & Me rail because of the beautiful patterns and got sucked in by the soft fabrics and gorgeous shapes, which looked like they would be really easy to wear, yet flattering and stylish at the same time. I got in touch, as I was interested in the brand, and discovered that the company is run by a fantastic family team. After some chatting, I paid them a visit last month to their design barn in the Cotswolds and found out all about how Lily & Me came to be, and their plans for the future.
Lily & Me is all about pattern. I met their designer, and learnt about the process behind coming up with new designs and colours for every season. I could reveal secrets about the spring/summer range for next year, but I would have to kill you, and that could get me in trouble.
Suffice to say that the current range is pretty gorgeous. Everything is designed to be super easy to wear and a lot of thought goes into the creation of the right shapes for their dresses, cosy knits and tunics.
I have a couple of dresses on their way, which I’ll share with you soon, but in the meantime, Lily & Me wanted to give you the chance to try out their clothes for yourself, so have given me a £50 to giveaway.
