The Colorful Life













It has been the most colorful past 24-hours! My days have been painted pink & green with Lilly! Beginning with the fabulous VIP Lilly party at the Madison Avenue townhouse the night before the show, all the way to watching Martha wear one of the new summer '09 Lilly prints, getting to know so many fellow bloggers, and meeting Joanna, Emilie, & all the other wonderful people from Lilly Corporate - thank you to everyone who worked to make yesterday magic! I so enjoyed getting to know everyone. Thank you to the Madison Ave store especially for hosting the fun party, and to all the Lilly worker bees who helped me pick out graduation dresses and pampered me with champagne. I also want to thank the incredible artists who were painting prints in the window. Stacy, you painted me a beautiful picture of the townhouse that will soon be framed and hanging in my bedroom. It is such a special memory!

Thank you Hopsy for hosting the pre-party getogether for all of us bloggers. I'm brand new to the blogging community, but you were all so kind and friendly, and I loved meeting you Helen, as well as Kate and Patricia from DC (we'll have to get together again soon!), KAG, Blaire, Lou Lou in Lilly, and everyone else. More to come soon! xoxo MellyLil

You and your mom are too cute Melanie! I am SO thrilled we got to finally meet in real life. I just knew we would hit it off after emailing you. I am just sorry we did not get to catch for longer nor did we run into one another yesterday! Also, I pointed you out to A, but I am not sure you all got to ctach about the Cornell connection. Perhaps we can play in the city this summer if you happen to make a trip? I am thrilled to hear you shopped and took in all the pink and green in style. PLEASE do keep in touch Melanie, I have the feeling this could be the start of a GREAT friendship!
