Lemon Poppy Seed Soap at Lilify

Posted on July 22nd, 2019 by Lilify

To suit the sweat of summer, Lilify has partnered with local soap maker Connie Mardon to create a soap that is uplifting as well as astringent. Lemons are such an iconic scent to the season and paired with poppy seeds offer an even more elegant, exfoliating experience. Visit our shop at 281 Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey to view this and other locally-made products, such as our grapefruit and geranium body lotion.

Wishing you a barefoot July, with sticky berries, dreamy bonfires, and bright blue skies.

Parking Garage Serves Monterey's Lighthouse District

Posted on July 22nd, 2019 by lighthouseave

We know that street parking on Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey can be challenging. The great news is that there's a public parking garage located at 601 Foam Street (between Hoffman and Prescott), a short walk from all your favorite Lighthouse District shops and restaurants!

After 4pm, parking in the Foam Street Garage is free for residents whose zip code begins in 939 (just show the attendant your driver's license). During the day, Monterey residents with a one-year parking decal from the City (only $10) can enjoy 2 hours of free parking per day.

Not a local resident? No problem! The Foam Street Garage offers parking for a flat, daily rate. Depending on the season (and the demand), the daytime rate will vary from $8 to $18. In the evenings, that rate will drop, usually as low as $5.

The City of Monterey offers all people with a valid disabled person's placard or license plate a 50% discount off the posted parking rate at the Foam Street ("Cannery Row") Garage. More information on Monterey parking for people with disabilities can be found here.

Lilify.com Is Now Live!

Posted on July 6th, 2019 by Lilify

Monterey locals Hanni and Jesse opened Lilify in 2012 after a grueling two-year renovation of a dilapidated, uninspired building with beautiful bones. They dreamt of creating an elegant, yet understated, experience that would honor the detail and authenticity of handcrafted goods and highlight the talent and passion of independent makers.

Lilify is a cultivation of their values, their aesthetic, their story, and the stories of the creatives that they spotlight.

They have been thrilled to osmose, evolve, and are ever inspired by their community and customers. They explore an expanding collection of gifts, wares, and wears while continuing to refine their perspective.

In this new season for the shop, they are beyond excited to announce the launch of Lilify online! They are thrilled and humbled to invite you to immerse in their compilation of ethically, independently made, gorgeous goods. Are you a Monterey local? Select the local shipping option to swing by the shop and pick up your purchase at 291 Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey.
