Re: GILI by Jill Martin

Reminds me of her clothes -- overpriced and tacky looking.

Re: GILI by Jill Martin

GILI was the acronym for "got it, love it".  Originally the line was knock off versions of expensive products.  When the original face of the brand left, TPTB would have been better off going for another brand name.

 

The current face of the brand just doesn't get it.  We are not all tall, thin, NY style women!!!  Skin tight clothing, loud prints, sky high heels, etc are just not what many of us are looking for.  And, the prices are ridiculous!

 

Classic, timeless clothing made from quality materials will always win out over fads.  I don't purchase from this current line.

Re: GILI by Jill Martin

I have never cared for the GILI line.  I guess it must be making money for QVC since they are expanding it to home items.  I didn't see the items last night, but I'm sure they will be shown again soon.  I'm sure they are too pricey for me.   Don't like the line or the rep.  JMO

I've said the same thing myself @grandma r ... When Robertson moved on they should have re-branded and I will never, ever understand why they thought the current mouthpiece for this line had any appeal... Moreover, I don't think for a minute she actually 'designs' this line, but it's irrelevant, because it's completely gone by the boards as far as I'm concerned... There is nothing Jill Martin could do to induce any interest on my part in this house brand line of goods, especially at the prices they try to charge...

Re: GILI by Jill Martin

Never cared for Jill Martin ......don't like her GILI line in either clothes nor home products either....Hysterical that the prints in clothes and decor accents match....I guess this must be the latest trend...😆😆😆   Jill needs to stick with her sports reporting career with the Knicks...

Re: GILI by Jill Martin

I agree that this line should have been either discontinued or totally renamed and redone when Lisa left.    They didn't need to bring in another rep either--one of the current hosts could have been the regular presenter.  Not a fan of Jill M. or this line.
