Dilly About Our Flower Shop
Ever since Dilly Lily first opened its doors, this high-end floral design shop and event company located in historic Lincoln Park has specialized in delivering beautiful flowers to Chicago and many of its surrounding suburbs. Founded by Christine Noelle in 1997, she led the Dilly Lily team until 2016 when she sold the shop to another floral enthusiast, Rick McVey. The tradition of Christine’s distinct design style continues today under the direction of the newest Owner and Creative Director, Eric Phillips, whom she personally trained. Along with a talented team of floral stylists, Dilly Lily aims to achieve the highest caliber designs.
Dilly Lily celebrates the beauty of all flowers though we have an affinity for those that are unusual and unconventional. It is this whimsical and often dramatic flair that our customers have come to expect from Dilly Lily’s floral creations. We choose the highest quality premium flowers, grown on sustainable, socially responsible farms located around the globe and whenever available, we source local and organically grown product to stock our coolers.
With exceptional artistry, unparalleled customer service and a convenient location, Dilly Lily has become one of Chicago’s leading floral studios. We consistently command a reputation for delivering amazing flowers and have become the go-to florist for our customers’ floral needs.
Whether your style is modern, classic, contemporary, or casual, our designers can capture and translate your style. Dilly Lily is best known, however, for compact, colorful designs with a garden flair and a twist of the unexpected. Respecting the natural flow of each flower is important and our designers’ strengths lie in color combination and composition.
It's All For The Love of Flowers
Behind every great shop is a great team and every team member plays an important role to make Dilly Lily among the finest floral shops in the Chicago area. It is not only our design and customer service skills that ensure an unparalleled shopping experience, but also our passion for what we do.
We are floral aficionados, addicted to beautiful flowers: their shape, color, texture, and fragrance. It is exciting to combine their beauty to convey a mood, special sentiment, and a story.
When it comes to weddings and events, our accomplished designers are dedicated and meticulous about every detail. We are here to interpret your vision to ensure each event exceeds your expectations. Dilly Lily will capture your style and create a custom floral display befitting of one of life’s big moments. Let us bring your vision to life.
Dilly Lily doesn't just love beautiful flowers. We take great pleasure in curating a collection of unique and thoughtful gifts and home goods, hand poured candles, letterpress greeting cards, fine jewelry, house plants, stunning floral arrangements, and curiosities. Our online shop features a few of our many offerings, but we would much rather invite you to visit us in person to browse our frequently revolving inventory.
