The only thing that could get me off the beach, is if I’m headed to another. Last week I left the Carolina coast and made my way down south to the sandy shores of Naples Florida. I couldn’t wait to drop my bags in the suite and hit the beach!
My first full day I hit the pool to soak up some sun. I met some fab Lilly ladies in the loungers, and some handsome fellas in the hot tub. What could make this day better? Only a few frozen drinks to sip under the sunshine.
Once the rest of the buy trip babes trickled in, it was time to get back to business. We had breakfast bright and early at Broadwell’s, overlooking the golf course. After that we were off to the Imoklee room to view the exclusive Lilly Pulitzer Resort 2017 collection. We were in awe of all the fabulous winter fashions and fabrics and couldn’t wait to shop for our store.
That night we put down the line sheets and picked up the champagne. I met my besties at the open bar and buffet and hit the terrace to see the sunset. It was a perfect photo-op beneath the palms. We made our way to the beach bar and watched the band jam before we hit the bed.
On our last day of paradise, we finalized our orders and hit the sand for one last break before our flight. I had the best time catching rays and catching up with up with friends.
This must be why they call this the Lilly dream job. What better way to work and play than on vacay? Follow along for more of this life under the printed palms…
