LocalLily.com features “Lily,” a good friend with exceptional taste who enjoys living seasonally and sharing the best locally owned places to dine, shop and experience Arizona.
Lily’s persona is key to the site’s strategy. Contrary to the popularity of self-made Internet personalities, Co-Founders Walsh and Hickey are never in the limelight. Lily was created so the quality of the information would always be center stage.
We are passionate about our community, our economy and improving the perception of Arizona’s culture. That’s why Lily is on a mission to discover ‘What business blooms in your backyard?’
