Glimpsed at Work: Diane Devaney

Diane Devaney, 48, is president of the Devaney & Associates advertising, marketing and public relations firm. But, the Sykesville resident is also something else. "I'm a Lilly girl," she said. She wears a lot of Lilly Pulitzer, "and almost all of it, I've gotten at the warehouse sale." That would be the infamous semi-annual sale at the Valley Forge, Pennsylvania Lilly warehouse. Devaney and her girlfriends go up the day before. "We get in line and get a ticket that gets you a spot in line for when they open the doors at 5 the next morning." The hot pink cotton scoop neck T-shirt and hot pink and Kelly green print on white cotton pique pants are two items she's scored there. The matching jacket she found in North Carolina's Outer Banks, on sale. "I went into Lilly stores wherever I traveled to find this." Her hot pink peep toe slingbacks came from the Nine West store. "My husband bought them for me because I wear so much pink." She found her doubled ultra-long crystal-studded silver necklace at "I saw one like it on 'Cougar Town.' If you go on etsy and type in Cougar Town, they have all the jewelry [seen on the show.]" She picked up her silver bangles in Mexico, along with her pink beaded ring -- which she bought for all her fellow Lilly-ite girlfriends. Her Pandora bracelet came from the Pandora store. And she bought her Lilly Pulitzer briefcase at a store in Rehoboth.
