Lily & Co. Easter egg hunt dangles 'lots of carats'

Jeweler to hide $30,000 worth of diamonds, gems

Children are invited to find "lots of carats" during an Easter egg hunt at Lily & Co. Jewelers from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 3, store co-owners Dan Schuyler and Karen Bell announced on Monday.

There will be 1,200 candy-filled eggs hidden around the Lily & Co. property, with 50 of the eggs holding a certificate representing loose diamonds, gemstones and pearls valued at a total of $30,000.

Children ages one to seven will be able to hunt for the eggs from 2 to 2:30 p.m. An Easter costume contest with prizes for the best costume will happen between 2:30 and 3 p.m., and open hunting season for 7 to 12 year olds on the remaining eggs will occur from 3 to 4 p.m.

Additional activities include refreshments provided by Bailey's General Store and piece by famed designer Marya Dabrowski will be raffled off to benefit Friends In Service Here (F.I.S.H.) of Sanibel. All are encouraged to bring a non-perishable item to benefit the families assisted by F.I.S.H of Sanibel.

"We're also expecting a visit from a furry friend," said Schuyler. "Not just our usual canine's, but a hippity, hoppity kind of guy with long ears and a cotton tail."

Lily & Co. store hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. For more information about Lily & Co., call 472-2888 or visit
