Welcome to our member spotlight, where we highlight the impactful businesses thriving in our CityCentral community and beyond. In today's post, we have the privilege of highlighting the Lilian M. Collection, a fine jewelry collection operating out of CC Addison, specializing in the craft of sentimental wedding and engagement pieces. Join us as we learn more about this dazzling collection and the work of its Founder, Linda Lyons.

Tell us a little about Lillian M.

Lilian M. Collection is a fine jewelry company that specializes in engagement rings and wedding day jewelry, co-founded by Linda Lyons. We are partnered with Walters Hospitality, a wedding and experience company, which has branches across Texas and Georgia. Because of this partnership our clients get exclusive deals to Walters Hospitality, and vice versa. As a concierge jeweler, our goal is to take the stress out of jewelry and gift shopping, as we offer personalized jewelry shopping and design. CityCentral houses our design studio - where we design ready to purchase and custom pieces, as well as a showroom of our most popular preset styles and designs. 

How did you start working at Lillian M.?

Linda, our owner/co-founder, owns various companies, including Lyons Paperie and Lyons Events, and has had years of experience in the jewelry and diamond industry before founding her companies. Linda partnered with Walters Hospitality to combine her passions and create a wedding day and engagement jewelry company to bring more ease to brides in the planning process. Driven by a passion for hospitality and a commitment to creating unforgettable experiences, Linda and The Walters’ vision was to include the finest jewelry for every milestone, setting the stage for an unparalleled partnership in the world of hospitality. Drawing inspiration from a very special place, the Walters’ first venue — the name Lillian M. Collection came to life. True to its roots, Lillian M. Collection is dedicated to helping couples celebrate their ever-after, making it the first destination on their journey of love and a familiar stopping point for many years to come. 

What sets the business apart from your competitors?

Not only do we offer fully custom jewelry that we design with our clients, but because of our partnership with Walters Hospitality our clients can receive rebates and discounts with their future wedding venues and vendors. We have created ring designs based on pinterest photos, a client’s favorite flower, and even wallpaper! Most popular with our clientele is our magnetic engagement ring system, that allows clients to mix and match bands and stones to see exactly what engagement ring fits their style best. 

How to do you navigate your work-life balance?

I have an amazing team that I trust to run different parts of the business that allows me to balance work and life! Y’all should come see Damaris - best sales person you could ever meet!

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Seeing a client’s reaction to a custom piece at pick-up, or at the proposal, gets us every time. Being a small part of someone’s forever means the world to us!!

How has being a part of the CityCentral community affected you and the business?

CityCentral has been a great space for us - especially being with other successful small businesses. 

Any improvements we could do to help you or the business?

Would love the opportunity to meet more owners and businesses and see how we can help with their gifting needs - we house all of our sister companies here - so any event planning, gifting or graphic design/stationery needs :) 

If you had a friend in town, and you could take them to one of your favorite restaurants or spots in your community, where would you take them to?

55Seventy, Nasher Sculpture Center, DMA, & Honor Bar!
