Tiffany

Tiffany Brockmann

Owner

Tiffany grew up in York, PA and always had a love for fashion and followed the latest trends.  She doesn’t have a college degree and didn’t have any background in retail when she opened the LILYMAES Kiosk in the Factory in 2005.  This all really started as a little hobby to give her something to do while she was a stay at home mom to two toddlers.  The name LILYMAES is named after Tiffany’s niece. She enjoys shopping for the store finding the latest fashions and the coolest gifts but doesn’t really shop for herself.  Tiffany says- “ I think since I shop pretty much all week long for the store I’m burnt out and don’t want to shop for myself. Good thing I can get just about anything I want or need at LILYMAES so don’t really need to go elsewhere. “

She has been married almost 20 years this October and has three children, two boys and one girl.  Her oldest Son is going to College this fall to UNC Charlotte, her middle son will be a rising sophomore and her daughter is a rising 4th grader.
Tiffany is the youngest of her three siblings; she has an older brother who lives in Rehoboth Beach and an older sister who lives in Virginia.  She loves spending time with her family, going to the lake, traveling and working out at the best gym ever “FIND A WAY Fitness”!!! She never watch’s TV, she doesn’t even know what the latest shows or movies are these days.  She’s a morning person, usually up by 5:00 am.  That’s the best time to get caught up on emails while enjoying a cup of coffee.  Thank you so much for all the great memories and the support over the years!  I look forward to seeing you at the store or out in the community.  You guys are the best!!

Rebecca Geris

Sales & Merchandising Manager

I'm originally from a small town in Northern Virginia called Nokesville (picture your typical one stop-light town surrounded by corn fields and barns). I've been living in Wake Forest for the past 2 years. I graduated from Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia in December of 2008 with my Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Merchandising. When I'm not working at LILYMAES I can be caught volunteering with my church or traveling. (I'm currently on a mission to check off ALL 50 states!) Most people don't know that I know a lot about cars and can even work on them myself. You can always hear me coming when I pull up at the store in my 2014 Mustang GT. I call her my LTL PONY LILYMAES is literally my FAVORITE place to be and I'm so happy that I get to spend most of my days doing a job that I LOVE 🙂

I’m a senior at Heritage High School! I have lived in Wake Forest all of my life. I am hoping to major in engineering after I graduate. When I’m not working you can find me studying, skiing, surfing, or just hanging out with my friends and family. I love meeting new people everyday I work at Lily Maes, and I love being with all of my coworkers!

Sales Associate

Born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. Went to college and graduated from Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN. I started my career in college and high school admissions for 11 years, working for schools in California, Indiana, Wisconsin, and South Carolina. I have two teenage daughters and two dogs that keep me busy. When I’m not at Lily Mae’s, I am hopefully on the golf course!!! What I love most about Lily Mae’s is it feels like family all the time. Whether it’s the ladies I’m working with or the customers that come in, it’s always the place “where everybody knows your name”

Cindy Odland

Inventory Control

I was born and raised in Bloomington, IL where I also attended Illinois State University. When I’m not at work I can be found spending time with my 3 children, Henry, Amelia and Evelyn and husband, Paul. I love working at Lily Mae’s because I get to work with a great group of ladies who have also become my good friends! Another perk is being able to learn about the latest trends and shopping in the best store in town!

Hi I’m Maggie! I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill (go Tar Heels!) in May of 2019. When I’m not working at LILYMAES, I’m at NC State working hard to earn my MAT in Elementary Education.

Adrienne Donovans

Adrienne Donovan

Fashion Buyer

I was born in Fort Knox, Kentucky but grew up in Northern Virginia. I graduated from East Carolina University where I met my husband Mike. After graduating college, I worked in pharmaceutical sales for several years before I was able to stay home and work for a health and wellness company.

We’ve lived in Wake Forest since 2003 with a brief move to Pennsylvania. Our three children and two crazy labradoodles keep us running around. Most weekends you will find me on a soccer field, at a running race, or a baseball field cheering for my kids.

I have always loved fashion and interior design. Selecting fun and unique clothes while also trying to find things women of all ages and sizes can feel comfortable wearing has become a passion of mine. Lily Maes truly has that friendly, small town, boutique feel but also offers the cutest and trendiest styles that will always have your friends saying “Where did you get that, I love it?!”

Hello everyone! I'm Tori, and I was born and raised in Wake Forest. My passion is helping others feel like the best version of themselves, so when I get to help a customer pick 'the perfect outfit' for a night out, my day is made.
