Tiffany grew up in York, PA and always had a love for fashion and followed the latest trends. She is married and has three children, two boys and a girl. One son is 19 and goes to college at UNC Charlotte, her middle son is 16 and her daughter is 9. 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 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 loves spending time with her family, going to the lake, traveling and working out at the best gym ever “FIND A WAY Fitness”!!!

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 🙂
Merchandiser & Gift Buyer
I am originally from NJ and moved to Wake Forest, NC in June 2010. I graduated from Berkeley Business college with a degree in fashion marketing and management. I’ve been married to my husband Doug for 21 years and have 2 sons, Aiden who is 17 and a senior at Heritage HS and Nico who is 11 and a 5th grader at Heritage Elementary. We have a Cavapoo named Gryffin. I like to spend time with my family and friends. The beach is my happy place!
I am originally from SW Virginia but have been here in Wake Forest for 13 years. I have been married for 19 years and have 2 amazing boys in high school. If I am not at work, I am on the soccer field doing my favorite thing – watching my boy’s play.
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. LILYMAES 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?!”
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 LILYMAES 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!
I’m Amanda Fierbaugh and my family and I moved from Hurricane WV to Wake Forest 11yrs ago. In my spare time I like to paint and craft and shop. I got an opportunity to work at LILYMAES almost 2 yrs ago and have loved every second of it. Besides all the wonderful things that our store has to offer, being able to work and talk with our customers and to be with my friends, is my favorite thing to do.
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 LILYMAES, I am hopefully on the golf course!!! What I love most about LILYMAES 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”
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. One thing people don’t know about me is that I love to dance and sing. My favorite thing about working at LILYMAES is hanging out with all my amazing coworkers – we are like one big happy family!
