What You'll Get
The secret to being fashion-forward is all in the details. Today's Groupon gets you $60 toward custom handbags and more for $30 at 1154 Lill Studio. Redeem your Groupon at the Newbury Street location in Back Bay. Accent your business duds, hospital scrubs, or school uniform with a custom-designed bag that will assert your individuality in the midst of the masses, just like Waldo.
Whether you change purses as often as underwear or you stick with a style until you wear it out, the friendly staff at Lill Studio will help you nimbly craft the perfect bag to fit your personal style. Choose your favorite style and fabric from Lill's quality line of designer textiles and within three to four weeks you'll be blushing each time someone asks where you got your gorgeous purse. Custom bags make great gifts for fellow fashionistas, your maid of honor, or your newly diaper-toting sis.
1154 Lill Studio carries durable fabrics in floral and feminine patterns, funky dots and swirls, regal tile patterns (that may or may not reveal the future if you unfocus your eyes), bold colors, and handsome tweeds. Dress your pleated Charlotte ($79) in Park Avenue green tweed or put paisley on the Christie ($59), a convenient makeup bag that will stand out amongst the black roller bags and briefcases in the overhead compartment and is pretty enough to leave on the counter every day. If you want to give your giftee a choice for Christmas, but hate the unshakable, unwrappable nature of gift cards, give one of Lill's new Design a Bag kits. Each kit includes 30 fabric swatches for the recipient to mix and match for the chosen style. She can choose her fabrics, fill out an easy order form, send the kit back in a prepaid package and wait for her custom-designed bag to arrive in three to four weeks. Give her the girlie Grace clutch ($96) or stylish and casual Chloe reversible sack ($69) to showcase her fabric choices.
Like a good crystal skull for the mantle, your purse is an investment; Lill Studio's quality craftsmanship and durable fabrics will support the books, apples, and gold bullion bars you sling over your shoulder each day. Like your classic trench or winter wool, your everyday handbag is a statement you make over and over again. Trendy designer bags fold you into the anonymous crowd of similitude before they become outdated over night. Ditch your cookie-cutter bag of the week for a chic, custom bag that will seamlessly complement your wardrobe and garner the plaudits and envy of friends and strangers. Redeem in-store, or get your friends together for an in-store handbag party and increase your Groupon value to $65.

About 1154 LILL Studio
What began as a small operation out of founder Jennifer Velarde’s studio apartment is now a celebrated handbag business with three stores in two cities, an online boutique, and a slew of media accolades from magazines such as InStyle, Good Housekeeping, and Real Simple. The business owes its proliferation to Velarde’s touted lineup of custom-designed shoulder bags, bridal clutches, and totes. The creative trendsetter also provides her customers with a bevy of fabric swatches and styles so they can create their own designs during in-store or at-home handbag parties.
