Carrie has owned Pink a Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store since 2011! Before that, she owned a contemporary clothing boutique in Greenville that carried the Lilly Pulitzer brand. She felt there was a strong market here for a full Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store and the store, Pink Boutique quickly became Pink a Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store. She credits Lilly Pulitzer for getting her through one of the toughest times in her life with the happy prints, cheerful customers, and fabulous support from Lilly Pulitzer corporate. Carrie goes out of her way to help any of her customers and appreciates every single one, near or far! She loves seeing your pictures and where your adventures take you when wearing Lilly Pulitzer from Pink!
Her favorite season is Resort Fall and Resort as it it is the happiest time of the year (Thanksgiving and Christmas!). She says her favorite time is the holidays because she loves helping family and friends pick out the best gifts for their loved ones.
When not at the store, you can find Carrie at home painting Lilly Pulitzer prints, oyster shells, and anything beach related! She also has a heart of gold for animals and loves spending time with her dachshund, Molly. She has two children, Taylor, a senior in college and Thad, a senior in high school.
Her ultimate goal is to team up with her daughter and open multiple Lilly Pulitzer Signature Stores around the east coast. With your help and continuing . to #ShopLocal, we can make this happen!

Fun Fact: Taylor is Carrie's daughter! Most people don't make the connection but when you see them together, you will be able to tell instantly! They are the best duo team and balance each other out so well.
Taylor has grown up with a love of fashion, especially for Lilly Pulitzer! When her mom, Carrie, first bought Pink Boutique, she was in just second grade. Some of her fondest memories include helping Carrie out at the store when she was younger and playing "dress up" at the store. She often refers to the store as her "second closet", as she loves all the fun styles and prints!
Taylor started off as a Lilly Pulitzer Stylist when she was 16. Fast forward 5 years and she is now the manager of the store! She loves being able to interact with customers and see their children and families grow. She also loves being able to go to Lilly Pulitzer corporate and buy for the store!
Her favorite Holiday is Christmas as she loves the store decorated and the fun and busy nature of the season.
Taylor is a huge advocate for shopping local and supporting her own community. She loves when customers text her special orders or share their pictures!
When not at work, you can find Taylor making jewelry for her own jewelry line, Chesterton Jewelry, working on Pink's website, creating fun events for Pink, or at the beach. She hopes to one day combine her love for Lilly Pulitzer, the North Carolina coast, and the beach and open a Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store in Beaufort, NC!
