Our Latest Obsessions: The Pink Pearl, Philanthropy and a Peacock

Our Latest Obsessions: The Pink Pearl, Philanthropy and a Peacock

This week, we shopped for Lilly Pulitzer and Vietri and attended a Women in Philanthropy panel.


You know us… we’re always out doing something in Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Pittsboro or Hillsborough. Click through our photos to see what we’ve been up to this week!

1Crook’s Corner

On his very first visit to Crook’s Corner, Kevin tried the legendary shrimp and grits.


2The Pink Pearl

How cute is this North Carolina pashmina from the new Eastgate Lilly Pulitzer store? Look carefully and spot the Krispy Kreme doughnuts!


3The Pink Pearl

Andrea knows what she’s getting her niece for her first birthday – some Lily Pulitzer from The Pink Pearl in Eastgate!

4Baby James

Briana, our photog, brought her newest assistant – two-month-old baby James – to a lunch meeting last week. He pretty much just listened to everyone else’s ideas.

5Women in Philanthropy

Andrea attended a very informative and inspirational Women in Philanthropy panel at SECU Family House. The speakers represented UNC, the Triangle Community Foundation, Habitat of Orange County, the NC Children’s Hospital, the Y, Meals on Wheels and SECU Family House.

6Women in Philanthropy

Included in the panel was Allison Worthy, representing SECU Family House. Allison was part of our 2014 Women’s Issue. Our 2015 Women’s Issue will be distributed around town this week!


Andrea cleaned up at VIETRI’s annual sale! Such good deals on dishes, yes, but also linens and paper napkins.

8My Carolina Today

Look for Andrea on WNCN’s “My Carolina Today” – talking Durham and Chapel Hill” – on May 13. The show airs at 11:30 am.

9Southern Season

No, Chapel Hill didn’t suddenly get palmettos… Jessica stopped by the Charleston location of Southern Season on her weekend trip.

10Tru Wine & Deli

Our fantastic spring semester interns took time between exams to have lunch with Jessica and Amanda at Tru Wine & Deli.
