The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale dates have bean announced, and I am ecstatic! This enormous sale happens twice a year, and these sales are always some of my favorite days of blogging. I LOVE chatting with y'all about what all you score and the amazing discounts that Lilly offers! Now, let's get into the details!
What is the sale?
Lilly Pulitzer rarely offers discounts, except for during their After Party Sale, which happens twice a year. During this sale, items are majorly discounted. Not just 20 or 30 or 40% off. Think bigger! Dresses can be scored for under $30! If you're familiar with Lilly prices, you know that is a steal!
When does it take place?
In store: September 8-9
Online: September 10-12
We have a Lilly store in Memphis, so I am going to try to get over there this weekend! That way I will have an idea of what is included in the sale, and I can share pictures of some of the best items included in the sale when my post goes live early Monday morning!
How can I prepare?
Create an account. By doing this, you will be ready to go when the sale goes live Monday morning! You can click here to create your account, or check to make sure all of your info is up to date if you already have an account. This is so important because items sell out SO fast during the sale. Items are not necessarily yours just because they are in your cart. You are not guaranteed an item until you check out. Having an account can save you time and beloved sale items when checking out!
Also, if you have Lilly items in your closet, check the sizes. Everything sold in the Lilly sale is final sale, so you obviously want to do your best to know what sizes to order!
What can I expect when the sale goes live?
Lilly Pulitzer uses a virtual line system. So come to my blog first thing Monday morning, click the direct link to be taken to the sale, and be prepared to wait in a virtual line. The earlier you click the link, the better. And the more devices you use, the better chances you have of getting in faster! I will be clicking the link from my phone and laptop. Last sale, I got in with my phone within a couple of minutes. However, I didn't get in with my laptop until over an hour after the sale had started.
The wait time can say crazy things. There are so many Lilly lovers trying to shop the sale at one time, so don't be alarmed if it says there are 47,932 people in line ahead of you and your wait time is 3 hours. It usually ends up going a lot faster than they predict! People probably get scared by the wait time and click out of the sale. Don't do this! Once you click into the sale, don't click out! When you click out, you will have to start your wait time completely over again. If you stay in there, your wait time will keep getting shorter and shorter until you make it in!
What will be included?
Last year, I had a friend say she had a couple of things in mind that she wanted to purchase from the sale. The things she wanted were newer items. Brand new Lilly items are typically not included in the sale. Lilly removes all of the items that will be included in the sale from their website a few days before the sale begins, so things that you see on their website now will most likely not be included in the sale.
However, there will be a huge variety of Lilly items included in the sale. I have personally purchased dresses, sweaters, tanks, Elsa tops, shirts, popovers, pajama pants, cardigans, shorts, skorts, beach coverups, beach bags, flip flops, and bathing suits. The deals are amazing!
What I'm Looking for:
Last year, I was on the lookout for nicer silk dresses because I had so many wedding festivities to attend. I purchased some beautiful ones. This year, I am looking for sweaters and comfortable dresses. Lilly Pulitzer dresses have been my number 1 favorite thing to wear while pregnant. They are stretchy, lightweight, and so comfortable. They are also a closet staple while not pregnant, so I know they will be a safe purchase to make!
What am I missing?! If you have any questions, feel free to comment below. I am SO excited about this sale and will be back first thing Monday morning before the sale goes live, so that you will have a direct link to click and get waiting in the virtual line! Thanks so much for reading! Have a great day! And I will give you one more link to create your account because it is so beneficial! You can click here to create your account or update your info!
