Fall's in Fashion

We asked some of our local customers what they like about fall here in Southern California, and where they might go to see some fall colors.  Here are some of their responses!

"Fall is my favorite time of year, because it gets cold and crisp outside and I can wear all my amazing winter clothes!!! and I love drinking hot cocoa on the beach! and it's cuddle weather!!!!"

"I bet the area in and around Balboa Park is very pretty right now - I would like to drive south through the park on 163 and check it out soon. Before the Santa Ana's come and all the leaves are gone... And...I almost forgot! One of my favorite things about fall is Pumpkin Ice Cream. I remember it from when I first had it at Coco's in Costa Mesa around the time I got married 30 years ago."

"I love the fall season because it cools down and after hot summers!!!!! and because of Halloween and Thanksgiving my two favorite holidays ever!!!!! Favorite spot to go to is Bates Nut Farm for pumpking picking with the kiddies!!!!!"

"It does make me feel warm and cozy. I love going to a coffee shop and getting hot coco and pumpkin bread! Its fun when all the pumpkin patches start to pop up and you see some of the trees changing. And Octoberfest is always a fun way to kick-start fall!"

"I think I like fall because it IS such a slow, subtle change, that it makes me slow down and take notice. A few intermingled orange leaved trees amongst the palms or evergreens.. it makes me nostalgic for where I grew up, because all the trees were sycamores that turned drastically before they dropped their coats."

"Fall is my favorite time of year because I can finally pull up my comforter without sweating profusely all night. It's the season when I can enjoy shopping.. for a full suit. I enjoy the trees changing color, the cold water and the big north swells that fall brings too. This time of year reminds of being a kid again, and bundling up in a towel and running to the beach freezing cold. But, I love fall most of all because its the season I was born :)"


"I love fall because it's not as hot but dry and my hair loves it."

"Pumpkin Pie shakes from J in the B."

Well, as we wait for the real deal to hit down here in So Cal, these quotes help me get excited to bring out my fall hats and scarves!

Feels Like Fall

When it feels like fall in southern California, everyone gets a refreshed outlook towards our subtle, stoic climate change. However, we seem to forget that when the first cool winds of Ca blow, just as we are ready to say goodbye to summer and welcome a new season,
those warm Santa Ana's come through reminding us to be patient. But you can't help but become antsy for fall when we get such a beautiful preview of the weather to come!
We had a photo shoot and it was one of those fall preview-perfect days. The air was crisp, a breeze was blowing, and we were lucky enough to see a cloud or two pass by. Enjoy some of the photos from that day, and check out our website for even more.

You can find all these pieces online in the "shop" section under
Feels Like Fall...
There are close ups, different views and angles, pricing, and more...

Lily and Lori, enjoying the weather!
Wrist wraps can be many things, including headbands!

All clothing from the shoot is made with sustainable and soft bamboo, and can be found from At Home On Main Street. Coming up this holiday season, we will be teaming up and having some parties featuring these great looks together! Let us know if you want to attend.

Check out the designers and owners of LilyGirl, sisters Denise and Lori, doing what they do best! Joel Navarro, the photographer, claims they make great art directors behind the scenes!

Joel was wonderful to work with. He gave us hundreds of great shots and is always available to speak with you if you'd like to get in touch and talk photography! You can contact him at
Keep a look out in your email box for an invitation to attend a clothing/jewelry party! We will be hosting one in Fallbrook and one in Cardiff. Or if you'd like to have a party of your own for your friends, we'd love to do that too! Click here to read more about the many great perks to having a LilyGirl night with your friends.
Tomorrow marks the first day of Autumn. We hope everyone enjoys the change of season as much as we do, and you take the time to soak in the fall weather before the holiday craziness hits! Now go get a pumpkin spiced latte...

Hot Night in Leucadia

As you know, every Friday at "it's a luv thing" boutique there is a happy hour! Last Friday was no exception, as we celebrated with a very special 4 year anniversary party...
The complimentary foot scrubs from The Garden Spa were well received of course. To have a glass of wine in hand while soaking our feet was quite the royal treatment. It was a good reminder to relax more often and do something nice for yourself. What a great way to start the weekend! Lori sold her heart charms (pictured below in the previous blog) and helped spread the love!
All in all it was one of those great evenings that make you pause and realize you live in a beautiful city filled with beautiful souls. I know in our hectic lives it's hard to just stop running and smell the roses. Sometimes though, the roses will come running to you. When that happens, I just try to revel in the feeling before it passes me by.
Join us next time we have a get together! If you want to be added to our email list of events, let us know. And remember ladies... It's a Luv Thing.
