Serena & Lily Sheets

Recently the folks at Serena & Lily invited me to review one of their luxury products. I've been considering new white or neutral sheets for our bed, and after seeing the Serena & Lily luxury bedding range I chose the Cut Circle Sheet Set in white.


The sheets arrived Monday, which was great because that's laundry day at the cottage and laundering the new sheets fit right into my schedule. (Of course, I schedule my laundry -- doesn't everybody?)

You may have guessed from a previous post that I take special notice of packaging. (That probably comes from the years I worked in retail.) I believe a quality product should be nicely packaged. The Serena & Lily sheet set came in a matching drawstring bag. All this was carefully wrapped in a recyclable plastic bag. (I'm going to reuse it for fabric storage.) 



I followed the laundry instructions --machine wash warm/tumble dry low -- and the 100% cotton sateen sheets washed up beautifully. No shrinkage. There was some slight wrinkling, but that may have been due to the fact that I have a compact dryer that doesn't leave extra tumbling room for a queen-size sheet set. (Remember, I live in a small cottage with small appliances.)

Making our bed was a breeze. The fitted sheet has deep pockets, and elastic all the way around, which makes for a neat and tidy fit without stretching. The top sheet is generous in size, which is really important to me because our old top sheet was short on the sides and I have a husband who's prone to grabbing the sheet in his sleep and pulling it with him when he turns over, leaving me without a sheet (sorry, honey). 

So, how do these sheets feel? Wonderful. They're very soft and smooth. My old sheets seemed pretty soft, and I had been reticent to replace them for fear we'd end up with something not to our liking. But both Dennis and I gave the Serena & Lily sheets a thumbs up. When he got into bed Dennis said, "Wow! I've never had sheets like these!" 


The morning after. Lines are imprints of our bed's pillow top and not part of the sheet.

The small,cut circle pattern gives the white sheets some pizazz.

Bottom line, I really like Serena & Lily sheets. They're pretty, soft, smooth and substantial, launder well, generous in size (I didn't lose my top sheet once last night), and husband approved.

Now I just have to figure out how I'm going to use that pretty drawstring bag.

  1. For me, there is nothing more heavenly then fresh sheets. And if they are as beautiful as these, well I'd be in bed early every night for a month!
    Yes, packaging is a great sign of good things to come.

  2. Good Morning Nancy, Beautiful sheets . . . White sheets have always been my favorite and these being white but with a pretty pattern are just lovely. Getting a good night's sleep is so important to having a good day when you wake and having a well fitted bed is a huge factor. Do you sun dry in the summer? I have been missing the smell that sun drying gives sheets, but this time of the year my dryer gets used for everything :)
    Congratulations on receiving these . . . it's like a late house warming gift.
    Have a happy day.
    Connie :)

  3. Those do look very luxurious and comfy! It is very difficult to find new sheets that are soft as old ones. Thanks for sharing with us Nancy :)

  4. I love nice sheets. If you can't hang them outside...wish I could, then the dryer has to do. They look very good. Hope all is well there. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. Oh- I love good sheets. Those sound wonderful. I have been using Shabby Chic sheets for several years now and I still love them...they feel almost 'crisp' when you crawl into them. I am a Monday sheet-wash day gal, too. lol xo Diana

  7. Thanks so much, Nancy. Sheet sets are not inexpensive and it's not as if we can try them on! So thanks for this review. The laundering is a key in my opinion, as well as the feel. I'm sort of a 100% cotton person but I do appreciate some of the sheets I've loved in various hotels.

    Thanks again! And BTW, my hubby is a true sheet hog!

  8. There is something so special about new linens, isn't there! I just recently got a lovely package of linen kitchen towels that are simply white, no decoration or print, but simple. What a difference they make in the look of my kitchen, and the feel is so soft....I would imagine your new sheets are lush! Have a great day my dear!

  9. I have not heard of Serena and Lily. They look great on the bed. My sheets are so old but I keep putting off buying new ones because as stated above, you can't try them on. My sheets are so old I can't remember the brand or read the tag so this review is a great help to me. Thanks for solving that dilemma.

  10. Our beds have to be the best place in the house so when you can put new pretty and comfy soft sheets on the bed it is heaven. These sound and look so pretty. Have a great day.
    Hugs,
    Kris

  12. Lovely! I need a new set of sheets, but like you I am picky, so I have been waiting. It's nice to have a review, especially from someone I know values what I do! :) Thanks for sharing, Nancy! Off to poke around their site.

  13. Hi Nancy, I really have a thing for beautiful comfortable bedding. When I am on line shopping I always end up looking for yummy beautiful items for the bedroom. I love your choice in sheets. I will have to check them out. Have a wonderful day!

  14. Your new sheets are very pretty! We've been sleeping on sheets from Boll & Branch for the past year, and I give them a great review as well! But Serena & Lily has more color/style options -- and some great ones at that! I may have to consider their gingham checks for the twin beds in our future guest room. I can just see two little grandsons snuggled up in them... :-)

  15. I just noticed last night that our sheets are appearing a bit worn. They have been our favorite sheets for some time. I really enjoyed your review, and I value your opinion. I must go and check them out. The sheets you picked are lovely, and I agree, the packaging is very important :)

  17. I might have to give these a try . . .
    I fuss about sheets . . . and the feel.
    Like the all white . . .
    And I understand that "extra pull" Mister Irish has . . .
    (I may do some of that myself!)
