Have you heard!? Lilac And Lilies is celebrating its NINTH anniversary, and I’ve put together a calendar of amazing events at the boutique to celebrate you, yes YOU! We would be nothing without your continuous support and love, so I’m dedicating this birthday bash to all of the incredible women who have kept our brand alive. Speaking of incredible women, something really special is happening on Saturday, April 28th. I’ve invited four female trailblazers who are not only inspiring, but totally kick-ass in their respective industries to sit on an interactive panel and take YOUR questions.
You may be wondering; how do you define a trailblazer? Trailblazers are curious. They’re problem solvers. They’re passionate about learning. They know how to take what they learn and turn it into a job. More importantly, they care about empowering others, no matter who they are.
It’s not every day that four dynamic women from varying walks of life get together to shed their truth on navigating the fashion and beauty industries. Join us for a day of conversation, encouragement and inspiration from women who are shifting perspectives.
– Saturday, March 28th from 10 am to 7 pm // Panel begins at 2 O’CLOCK –
Whether you’re interested in working in beauty or fashion or you’re looking for advice on how to build your own business, our panel will offer real and fresh viewpoints on what it takes to succeed like a #GirlBoss. Bring a notepad and pen because our panelists are about to be dropping some crucial gems that you won’t want to miss!
Without further ado, I’m thrilled to announce our Trailblazers Panel:
