CANDLE HAT

by Billy Collins

Cezanne is a pair of eyes swimming in brushstrokes,
Van Gogh stares out of a halo of swirling darkness,

Pin It!

We love Pinterest!

It is an amazing way to save and share your ideas. Everything you could ever want and loads of things you would not have even dreamed of can be found there; from recipes and interior design to fashion and shoes. The great thing is that you can send things to friends and store things in different folders...

Autumn Leaves

Our offices in Gloucestershire are surrounded by trees and at this time of year that is a real treat.

Now is the time to visit an arboretum as the leaves turn their many different shades of rust, gold and red and one of our favourites is Westonbirt Arboretum, in Tetbury, Gloucestershire.

Cover Girl

Our sensational Lottie Shift Dress made the cover of our catalogue. The gorgeous Blossom Finch print, simple shift shaping and cute flared cuff encapsulates the spirit of Lily&Me.

What about chutney? This chutney recipe is delicious and really easy.

Nepal Earthquake Fund

 

As you may know Lily&Me have a factory in Kathmandu, Nepal and so the dreadful news from Nepal has been very real to all of us working here.

A number of you have asked how you can help; how you can get support to those families and communities that need it most. We have been talking with our directors Amelia and Hari who live in Kathmandu over the last few days...
