My Lillian & Co. Interview – with #DiscountCode

wdwjill (NDM#117) (27 Posts)

My name Jill Laperle. My first trip to Disney was way back in 1978. I still remember the first glimpse of the Magic Kingdom with my parents. I even still have some of those unused original tickets buried in a box. I met and married my Prince Charming (Jeff) and we have 2 Princes (Riley and Aidan). Mickey and Minnie were kind enough to pop in at our wedding (thanks to our parents) and we had an amazing Disney honeymoon. Both of the boys had their first haircuts at the Main Street Barber Shop when they were a year old. In 2009 we became proud DVC owners at Baylake Tower. I have graduated from the College of Disney Knowledge and keep up with that training just to help people plan trips. I made it to the second round for Moms Panel after years of applying. I will keep trying knowing one of these years it will be my turn. I was a beta tester for Disney InsidEARS. I may have a small obsession with Disney Dooney and Harvey Seatbelt bags. I also love collecting Disney iPhone cases, Chamilia beads and other jewelry finds. I am always showing a Disney Side in a small way. Anything else you would like to know just ask. NDM #117


 

Bracelets


It has been a while since you heard from me. In my hiatus, I discovered Lillian & Co. I will admit to stalking their Instagram posts for a while, looking at all the awesome Disney inspired sayings in the popular mantra style bracelet. I decided to stop stalking and treat myself. I started with 2 rose gold bracelets. I got “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible” and “There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow”. After getting these, I knew I had to share this find with Disney Driven Life readers. In my opinion, the quality is amazing and  I love the fact you can wear them daily – with beautiful Disney inspired sayings that will not look kiddish for adults. I reached out to the owners, Charity and Matt, to see where they got their inspiration. Also, if you read all the way to the end, there is a special discount code for our readers!

What made you start Lillian and Co?

So, Matt and I are serial entrepreneurs. Between the two of us, we’ve started several, mostly service based, businesses, so Lillian & Co. was the love child of our love of Disney and our love of starting businesses.

How long have you been in business?

We launched on September 23, 2016 with only one bracelet, DO AS DREAMERS DO, a line from the song from the now ended nighttime Magic Kingdom spectacular, Wishes. Still to this day, it’s our most popular bracelet.

I know you sell bracelets and recently watches will you be adding more to the line?

Watch & Bracelet

We have all kinds of plans to add new products to our store in the future, and we’re so excited to bring them to our Dreamers! It’s hard to be patient, but that’s all part of the growing process. So, be looking for some new and exciting products/collections coming to Lillian & Co. in the upcoming year!

What is your favorite saying?

This is such a hard question, because with each bracelet we launch we spend so much time thinking about it and connecting personally to what it says, so by the time we launch the bracelet it’s my new favorite quote! But kind of how Mickey was always Walt’s favorite since it all started with a mouse, I still have a special place in my heart for DO AS DREAMERS DO, since that’s the one we started with.

I am assuming the name is a tribute to Walt’s wife Lillian is that correct?

Yes, when we were looking to name our company, we knew we wanted it to be rooted in our love of Disney, and even though our company is for everyone, it’s mainly focused on women, so I asked myself the question, “What’s the feminine side of Walt Disney”? That’s when it hit me, Lillian Disney! Once we saw Lillian and the role she played in Walt’s life, everything we wanted to be as a company fell into place.

Do you take requests for bracelets?

We love hearing from our customers and the quotes they’d love to see on our bracelets. It helps us know which bracelets to release next. So, if you have Disney quotes you love, please let us know!!

How can someone submit a saying for a future design?

Disney Fan Questions

  • Favorite Attraction – My favorite attraction is Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean with Walt Disney World’s as a close second.
  • Favorite park – Our family vacationed at Disneyland this summer, so right now Disney’s California Adventure is my favorite park, but here at home it’s EPCOT.
  • Favorite snack – After it’s all said and done, I still get excited for a Mickey pretzel with lots of salt and mustard.
  • Favorite character – How can I pick one?? I guess right now, my favorite character is Moana. Her drive to follow her heart in spite of her fears and others telling her no, is so inspiring.
