“I'm just working at Gus' to make ends meet... but my real passion is tailoring. I made these clothes from scratch.”
— Emily

Emily is a villager who lives in Pelican Town. She is one of the twelve characters available to marry. Her home is south of the town square, right next to Jodi's, at the address 2 Willow Lane. She works most evenings at The Stardrop Saloon starting at about 4:00 PM.

Emily loves to make her own clothing, but fabric can be difficult to come by in town. Among her favorite gifts are cloth and wool.

Emily lives with her sister Haley, and together they care for their parents' home, who have been traveling the world for the past two years. She works with Gus, who employs her part-time at the saloon. She is also friends with Sandy, whom they both mention. Sandy, at her first meeting with the player, claims to have been aware of the farmer's presence even before access to The Calico Desert was opened, saying that she had written to Emily about the newcomer.

Several dialogues and cutscenes reveal that Clint has romantic interest in Emily, though he is too shy to tell her.

Two Hearts

Two Hearts.png

Enter Emily's house.

Emily is asleep in her room. The screen pans and fades, and you find yourself viewing Emily's dream. It's a dreamscape of abstract shapes and colors, clouds, and palm trees. Emily floats above a purple stone structure on a large cloud. She is floating, meditating and chanting "power words." You appear out of the cloud, surprising her. She wonders what you are doing in her dream. Rainbow streaks fly by and she sees them as some kind of sign or omen. You disappear and she wakes up. She gets out of bed and says to herself that there is something special about you; she believes that your destinies are somehow intertwined.

Three Hearts

After reaching 3 hearts with Emily she will send you a recipe in the mail.

Four Hearts

Four Hearts.png

Enter town on a sunny day. Cannot be triggered in winter.

Emily leaves her house on a sunny day. Three parrots fly by, and she waves and refers to them as her "friends". After a moment, she continues walking but quickly stops, confused. A fourth parrot flys in too low and smacks against the window of her house. The parrot is injured. Emily rushes over and cradles the poor thing, promising that she will take care of it. Emily will now have a parrot in her room. The parrot hops around and will squawk if you go up to it and press the "check" button.

(If you marry Emily, the parrot will move into your house as well.)

Six Hearts

Six Hearts.png

Visit Emily's house when she's there.


You'll enter Emily's room. She tells you that she is excited to show you her secret hobby that she has been working on for a long time. She'll then proceed to turn on her stereo and begin dancing for you. After the lights and music end it will ask you what you thought of the performance. You have three choices:

This event was formerly Emily's four heart event, it was changed in version 1.1. In that update it got a new unique song and dialogue, as well as animation and visual improvements.

Seven Hearts

Eight Hearts

Eight Hearts.png

A letter in the mail will invite the player to the Mayor's Manor that same day during open hours.

Emily will send you a letter in the Mail, inviting you to attend her "Clothing Therapy" session:

I have this crazy new idea that I want to involve you in... It's called "Clothing Therapy".

Please come to the Mayor's house today to see what it's all about.

Love, Emily”

Enter the Mayor's house. Emily will explain the purpose is to help the townspeople express their true selves in the form of clothing. Attending are Mayor Lewis, Abigail, Shane, Robin, and Clint. Each one takes a turn going behind the curtain. Emily instructs them to choose whatever clothes "speaks to them", put it on and then show the world without fear. One by one, you get to see each character's choice. Shane puts on a full "goth" outfit. Robin puts on a fine dress and lets her hair down, embracing her feminine side. Mayor Lewis comes out with a fancy hat, cape, and cane. Abigail comes out in a full suit of armor. Clint is apprehensive about the whole thing, but after Emily coaxes him, he goes ahead. He comes out in a button-up shirt, pink shorts and a beret. Emily sees it and says "Awww... cute!", which makes Clint sad. After he is gone, Emily approaches you with romantic interest. Clint bursts in, saying he's too embarrassed to go out in his new outfit. He sees what's going on and feels awful. He makes some indirect remarks about it and leaves. Emily is confused.

Ten Hearts

Ten Hearts.png

A letter will invite the player to meet Emily in the Secret Woods after 10pm that night. (Note: If it is raining or a festival day, the event will trigger on the following night.)

You go camping with Emily in the Secret Woods. There is strange grunting coming from the forest. She says it's cold and snuggles up close to you by the fire. A bear comes out of the woods and approaches your campsite. It grunts loudly and you both jump and dive into the tent. The bear sniffs around and leaves. Emily says that one of the sleeping bags is still out there, and she's not willing to go out and get it... so you have to share a bag. You hear movement in the tent, the screen fades and the day ends.

The next day, the player receives a letter from Emily, saying

“Thanks for joining me last night... I had a great time.
I'm actually glad that bear showed up!

See you soon

Love, Emily”

Note that if you have not yet upgraded to the Steel Axe, you won't be able to get to the Secret Woods to complete this event. However, the event can still trigger on a subsequent night after 10pm by going to the Secret Woods once you've gained access.

Group Ten-Heart Event

Ten Hearts.png

If the player is unmarried and has given a bouquet to all available bachelorettes, raised friendship with each bachelorette to 10 hearts, and seen each bachelorette's 10-heart event, then entering Haley/Emily's House will trigger a cutscene.

If the player has a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, the cutscene will consist of a gossip session about Mayor Lewis and Marnie's relationship.

If the player does not have a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, all bachelorettes will express anger about the player dating them all at one time. Regardless of the player's dialogue choice(s), all bachelorettes will decide to give the player the "cold shoulder" for about a week after the event. They will give angry dialogue when interacted with, and refuse gifts. After about a week, all bachelorettes will forgive the player, and dialogues return to normal.

This event will trigger only one time per save file.


Main article: Marriage

Once married, Emily will move into the farmhouse. Like other marriage candidates, she will add her own room to the right of the bedroom. She'll also set up a small crystal garden behind the farmhouse where she'll sometimes go to meditate.

On rainy mornings, Emily may offer you Cloth, Wool, Duck Feather, Refined Quartz, or Bean Hotpot. On rainy nights, she may offer you dessert that is "raw", "gluten-free", and "sweetened only with cactus syrup": Rice Pudding, Blueberry Tart, Cookie, or Chocolate Cake. On days when Emily stays inside the farmhouse all day, she may offer you Cloth, Wool, Duck Feather, Refined Quartz, Bean Hotpot, Coffee, or an Omni Geode.
