Holiday Dressing!

If you buy anything else this party season, make it a sequined blazer!!

How to rock it?; you ask? Over simple pieces: ie little black dress, black strappies. OR sub your basic black blazer for sequins pairing it with dark denim jeans, tee shirt and boot or pump. When all else fails, head to toe black with the sequined blazer always a winner! PS Keep the blinged out accessories to a minimum; too much bling is never a good thing!!

Testimonials

THANK YOU for shopping with my Mom! She looks absolutely incredible and my whole family just loves the new looks you picked out for her! She said she feels like a whole new woman and that she cant wait for her next appointment for the spring season. She looks so elegant and pretty and I am so excited for her!

And, as always, thank you for shopping with me. It is such a relief to be able to just buy whatever I need for a season with you and know that it looks good. I used to spend so much time and money on shopping and I never liked anything I bought. In one three hour session you can pick out my entire wardrobe for a season - work, going out, dates, shoes and accessories too. I am always getting compliments on the things you pick out for me and I feel so much more confident knowing that everything looks good. You are an AMAZING stylist - its incredible that you can work with both me and my Mom (totally different ages, body types, etc) and make us both look good! Thank you for all of your help!

“I had the pleasure of working with Margaret Lilly on three occasions; however, none was as memorable as our time shopping for maternity clothes. Margaret was actually one of the first people who learned I was expecting because I was desperate to find some early-stage maternity clothes that would allow me to transition from my previously-Margaret-inspired wardrobe into maternity wear. We spent an afternoon shopping a maternity boutique in Old Town and I came home with some great basics and a selection of perfectly stylish pieces that lasted me the entire 9 months of pregnancy. Margaret was also “on-call” for me when I needed some help finding a maternity bathing suit at the last minute. She certainly knows how to make a woman - and definitely a mommy-to-be - feel special in whatever she puts on!”

About Us

Lilly’s Closet is the creation of Margaret Lilly, whose inspiration comes from growing up with six sisters – each with a very different sense of style. As a result, she developed not only an appreciation for individual expression through fashion but also a keen eye for what styles work best for different body types. She became the family fashion guru and was always ready to answer the call for help: to find the perfect ensemble for a special event; to coordinate what clothing and accessories to pack for a trip; and to edit the worn, the unfashionable, and the just plain unflattering from an overflowing closet. 

Armed with a degree in Clothing and Textiles, Margaret outfitted clients in a variety of fashion retail establishments from coast to coast before discovering that her true passion lay in wardrobing. Her secret to style-success? Mixing and matching vintage pieces with current pieces and low price points with high price points for the ultimate wardrobe. She decided that it was time to wardrobe her own clients; and, while her sisters remain her most loyal supporters, Margaret Lilly would like to wardrobe you.
