Add some style to your March Madness game-watch gatherings with spirited Lillybee shoes in your winning pick!

All in the Family
In addition to looking great in a gazillion color combinations, these lovable preppy stripes are sensational for women of all ages (as long as they wear size 5 and up!). Shown below, Lillybee owner Kassie Rempel (at right) with her mother and daughter. Three Generations of Stripes - Lillybee Owner Kassandra Rempel with her mother and daughterKassie Rempel, Tar Heel born and bred, is an avid sports fan, and a fashionista obsessed with cute shoes. She first envisioned kicky, striped ballet flats to represent all the great teams of the ACC in comfortable feminine style. Kassie started the company when her daughter, now nine years old in photo, was just a baby and incorporated her name into the brand, along with the word “bee,” her toddler son’s favorite critter. Lillybee was started in the garage of Kassie’s home and the ideas kept coming.

The ACC colors were expanded to include a range and combination of stripes that incorporate most school colors. When sororities began to inquire, preppy pinks and  shades of greens and turquoise were added to the combinations along with three-inch wedge shoe styles, rain boots and flip flops. College or sorority emblems, bows charms or monograms can be added for personalization.
