Leap Into Rush with Lily Pad!

Are Recruitment Gifts on your To Do list this summer? May I suggest you land at The Lily Pad! Located at 128 Courthouse, in the center of The Oxford Square. The Lily Pad has been serving Oxford and the Ole Miss community for over 21 years! With options ranging from sorority gifts, Ronaldo jewelry, and recently added outfit options for game day or a night on the town, The Lily Pad is a perfect place to find a gift for all ages and events!

Founder and owner, Courtney Gordon, recently shared with me about her experiences in retail. “I am very proud of the business I have established. I started the Lily Pad when I graduated from Ole Miss.” She explained and went on to share her secret to longevity in the business, “Retail is a hard profession, but I have had wonderful customers and employees throughout the years.” The customer experience is a top priority to Courtney. She went on to say that making sure her customers always feel welcome from the moment they walk in the store to the moment they leave is their goal every day. Her daily focus is that her staff does an incredible job to meet every customer’s needs while in the store or on the phone asking for help. The team must be doing something right, Courtney and her staff recently celebrated the store’s 21st birthday in April.

For Recruitment 2021, the team at The Lily Pad has worked diligently over the past year to source a broad assortment of items to make gift giving for your future sorority girl easy. Knowing that the week of recruitment can be stress filled they have made the shopping for gifts painless for you and fun for your daughter by coming up with daily themes for each day.

Themes include:

· Sunday - Get Up and Go Greek Day

· Monday - Sweets and Treats Day

· Tuesday - Glitz and Glam Day

· Wednesday - Reset and Relax Day

· Thursday - Hotty Toddy Day

· Friday - Dorm Day

· Saturday - Jewelry Day

All you do is select which days to send out gifts to your daughter, give the team an amount you prefer to spend, and they will do the rest, choosing items and treats that match the theme of the days, and preparing them for delivery. When it is time to deliver gifts, someone from the team personally delivers the goodies and baskets to your daughter to ensure safe arrival and distribution. Bid Day baskets will be sent to all of the Sorority houses on Sunday or Monday and your daughter can pick it up at her new home!

Over the years, The Lily Pad has made a name for itself and continues to be a customer favorite. Locals and visitors alike enjoy shopping for Bid Day baskets and goodies for recruitment. The Lily Pad is known for having the largest Greek section in Oxford. If you are interested in giving a Bid Day basket or goodie to your daughter or friend going through recruitment, stop by or give The Lily Pad a call. Courtney and her staff are on top of trends and so helpful. They will make sure that your gift giving during recruitment is not only encouraging and supportive but also goes smoothly.

Keep in mind that regardless of your gift giving needs, The Lily Pad is a great resource and there is an open invitation to drop by the shop the next time you are in town. They are also happy to assist with gift selections by phone or online and can also be followed on Instagram @thelilypadoxford . To reach by phone, dial 662-238-2900 or online at .
