Since she is practical and inventive, it’s only natural Lill Gentry would create something both functional and fashionable like Lil Pockets (worn here), a slim stretch belt with hidden pockets for your phone, credit cards, cash, etc. After traveling the U.S., getting feedback from women, she designed the first three styles: Hide & Chic for nightlife and parties, Hide & Sleek for travel and exercise, and Hide & Keep for walking and everyday wear. Named in honor of her mother, Lillian O’Neall, The Chula is a lightweight baby blanket Gentry created for the stroller and car seat that includes a loved one’s picture printed on it. Fan-Chic is her online store for Longhorn fans looking for burnt-orange fashions. As a “funtrepreneur,” she both entertains and informs on the entrepreneur’s journey in a way that’s “a lil’ more fun.” She gives back by leading the Austin Inventors and Entrepreneurs Association Meetup.
