I went to the third day of the Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale on Friday. Though I am sure I missed the bulk of the deals that were found on Wednesday and Thursday, I didn't have the time or patience to wait in line to get in any earlier. It was well worth the wait and the 90 minute drive. There were still quite a few good deals and I think I found them. Friday was Ladie's Shoes - buy one get one free. I scored two pair of McKim's, a coral pair and a white pair for $69.00 - that is $34.50 a pair and McKim's were retailing for $138.00 this Spring. I also got a dress and two pairs of capri's. I took my 15 year old niece along as well (it was her first sale) and she really had fun. I found out that the Fall Sale is Friday, November 20 and Saturday, November 21. Circle it in the calendar!!

I have been a "card-carrying" member of the Junior League of Baltimore since 1987 and this year I am the Membership Vice-President. This is a great job for me because I love socializing with people and I love the Junior League! In case you don't know anything about the Junior League -- it is an international organzation of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communties through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. We had a leadership training workshop last Saturday featuring a dynamic trainer named Vicky Clark. If you are in the market for a trainer, she would be a great choice. Our 2009-2010 Leadership Group is pictured above.
