Atlanta Hope Lodge gets makeover from Lilly Pulitzer in honor of Society’s 100th birthday
The Winn-Dixie Hope Lodge in Atlanta has a bright new look, thanks to Lilly Pulitzer. Recently, Lilly Pulitzer artists painted walls in the Lodge’s activity and game rooms with a specially designed green and pink print to honor the American Cancer Society’s 100th birthday and breast cancer awareness. The rooms are anchored with two large hand-painted Lilly Pulitzer murals and feature plush pillows on couches with the special design.
“Our guests and staff love the new look,” says Atlanta Hope Lodge Manager Danny Sheltz. “The cheerful pink and green design on the walls along with the new murals and pillows make the activity and game rooms look totally different. We are so grateful to Lilly Pulitzer for the makeover and for the donation of their time and talent. Hope Lodge guests will enjoy this for many years to come.”
Lilly Pulitzer, the authentic resort chic fashion brand owned by Oxford Industries, Inc. (NYSE:OXM), is dedicating its support to the Society with a special Lilly print of irises symbolizing hope and flowing pink breast cancer awareness ribbons. The Society will receive 20 percent of proceeds from merchandise sold with this print. This will support our work in breast cancer research, education, early detection, and patient services.
Also, on October 12, Lilly shoppers across the country will have an opportunity to support the Society through Lilly’s nationwide shop and share event, with 10 percent of sales from all retail stores going to the Society.
“One of the greatest gifts we can give as a brand is to create a special print just for a charity, so of course we wanted to do that for the American Cancer Society in honor of their 100th birthday,” says Janie Schoenborn, Lilly Pulitzer vice president of creative communications. “We are honored to carry on Lilly’s tradition of charitable giving. As one of our favorite quotes of hers states, ‘If you haven’t any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.’”
