Coming from a wealthy family herself, Lillian married William Lemp Jr. (the heir to the largest brewery in the world at the time) in 1899. She became known as the "Lavender Lady" because she constantly wore the color, making an exception only once--at her divorce proceedings in 1908, when she wore black to stand before the judge.
