Meet Lucy Davis Haynes

Lucy Davis Haynes started selling Worth for reasons like many others, she needed a little extra income, but it has instead become so much more than that. Lucy gets to live up to her mother’s legacy, co-founder Caroline Davis. Getting to work with her mother every day is just one of Lucy’s favorite parts of the job – see what else she loves most.

Why did you start selling Worth?

I started selling Worth part time in Memphis, but honestly got serious about my business in 1994 when my husband and I moved to Nashville. Before I could start looking for a 'real job' I learned I was pregnant with twins. I couldn't imagine job hunting with a high risk pregnancy - but knew we needed a second income. Worth to the rescue! I have never looked back.

What are your favorite Worth pieces from over the years?

I have so many favorite pieces. I wear jeans pretty much every day, so the Chloe jeans from a few years back were a hit with me personally and with clients. I think I sold 34 pairs!! I have to say that I treasure my drawers full of Worth scarves and wear one almost every day in the Fall/Winter. I love teaching clients how to wear them. I would be scared to count how many I have! Finally, I have far too many Worth leather jackets. I love pairing them with my aforementioned blue jeans. Nothing better than jeans, a Worth cashmere turtle, a Worth leather jacket and a scarf!

Who are your style icons?

Diane Manley of course. How does she do it season after season? How does she know what we need and can sell? And, my daughter ( Others (mainly from my blog crushes) include: Lauren Santo Domingo, Jenna Lyons and Olivia Palermo.
