My mom picked up one of these adorable Lilly wraps for my sister and me a few weeks ago. It is technically an oversized printed scarf with tassel trim. However, it can be used in many different ways. Every single time I've been to the pool since I got it, I have worn it. I think the colors are so fun and happy.
I love how it is so big that you can do so many different things with it. I tied it around my body and wore it as a coverup when I was going to the pool and when I left. However, you can also fold it in half and wear it as a sarong, which is what I did when I walked downstairs to grab some water. And I saw the model online wearing it as a scarf. It can also be brought on a plane and used as a soft blanket. One item, so many ways to use it!
Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale Details
The official start date of the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale is Monday August 28 (at 7am CST), and it will run through August 30! I have already set my alarm because I am that excited. Remember how I was posting like crazy about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale a few weeks ago? It was my first time to shop that sale, and I just learned about the fabulousness of it. However, I have shopped this Lilly sale for the past few years, and I'm here to to tell you the deals are just simply amazing! Lilly offers these huge sales twice a year, and tonssss of Lilly items get marked down- clothing and accessories. You are going to want to join in on the fun this year!
If you are a Lilly fan, this is the time to purchase. The majority of my Lilly collection has been bought during this sale because the prices are almost too good to be true. Like the Nordstrom sale, the pressure is on during this Lilly sale. Last year was the first year they had us wait in a virtual line before we could shop. They are doing the same thing this year. I believe they do this so their site won't crash. Although their site did crash last year because people know just how amazing this sale is and are trying to buy all the Lilly things! Hopefully, they will have those kinks worked out for this sale, but I'm warning you now- you want to be ready! All of the best items sell out in the blink of an eye.
How to Prepare:
1. Click here to go to the Lilly Pulitzer website and create an account. You can do this by clicking on Sign In in the top left corner. I did this last year, but I just went in yesterday to update my account with my new address and credit card info. I don't typically store my credit card info on websites, but Lilly is one of the 3 websites where I do this to make checking out go as fast as possible (which is key during this sale).
Filling out this info beforehand will save you time when trying to check out the day of the sale, so your favorite items do not sell directly out of your cart. Let me tell you from personal experience, this happens. Fortunately, Lilly does offer free shipping during this sale, so I suggest placing your order as soon as you have your very favorite items in your cart, and then come back a second time to shop for your less beloved items. However, make sure you include all your favorites in your first order because you will have to wait in the virtual line again.
2. Go through the site now and pick out some items that are must-haves. I always like to scoop up an Elsa Top or two and some cute swing dresses, like this one and this one. These basic pieces are closet staples for me, so why not stock up on them when they are way marked down?! They do not include everything in the sale. Items like the newest prints and styles will most likely not be included. However, they always include Elsa tops and some of their other basic styles. I always like to grab some accessories too. They have really cute jewelry, beach bags, and hopefully the wrap I blogged about today will be included!
Below, I am sharing a few pieces that I have gotten from the sale the past couple of years. If you don't love the bold patterns Lilly is known for, there are also many solid items you can choose from, like the navy dress I am wearing in this first picture, the pink Elsa top in the second picture, and the white skort I am wearing in the last.
My original post on Monday will just simply include the direct link to the sale. However, once I have made it through the virtual line and shopped, I will edit my post and add what I ordered and what my favorite items are! I look forward to this sale every August! If this is your first Lilly sale, get ready to be excited! Remember to click here, click on sign in in the top left corner, and create your account now so you will be ready to go! It is such a fun day!
Are you a Lilly lover? If so, what are you hoping to snag during the sale?! Thanks so much for reading! Have a great day!
