Tips for shopping the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

Omg it’s here again! The best time of the year! No not Christmas or my birthday.  If you haven’t heard (or aren’t aware) today is the Lily Pulitzer After Party Sale! If you are girl who loves Lilly (aka me), then today is one the best days for you too! If you’ve never shopped or need a refresher and how this all works, don’t worry! I have plenty of tips for you so that you can shop and get exactly what you want!

Tip #1 Make an account/Update your information

If you have never shopped on the website before make an account! I can’t tell you how vital this is when you get to the checkout page.  With so many people online trying to shop and get some of the best deals Lilly has to offer you need to have everything ready for a smooth checkout.  If you have shopped online, update any billing, shipping, or credit card information.  I promise if you do this it will be so easy!

Tip #2 Wake Up Early

Okay so I hope you are reading this post early this morning because you need to run over there now! If you are hoping to get a dress or a cute Elsa top, then RUN!  The sizing for these two items are usually some of the first that start to sell out! Don’t worry I got on last year at about 8:30 and was still able to get a good number of things I wanted.

Tip #3 Read the FAQ page

If you haven’t already or again have never shopped this sale this is your holy grail! It will give you all the information about shipping, credit charges, etc.  This is also one of those things that will make your experience a lot smoother so make sure to read up! I will link it here to make it easier!

Tip #4 Get everything in one order

I’ve made mistakes in the past where I forgot something and had to do two separate order which means two separate waits in the virtual line.  (rolls eyes) If you know what you want or what you are looking for make sure to use the search tools to refine your search.  It will make it way easier to get what you want or to find what you are looking for.

Tip #5 Use more than one device

I know I know everyone that seems a little far-fetched but with crazy Lilly lover it can never be too far-fetched.  The website does crash, your cart goes empty, or even worse you lose wifi signal! I mean anything can happen so make sure to use a laptop, phone, desktop, tablet, or whatever you have that can get on the internet.  I promise you won’t regret it.

Okay guys that’s all I have! I hope everyone finds these tips helpful and has a great time shopping the sale! Is anyone else shopping the sale today? Let me know what’s on your wishlist down below!

    I wish I could wear Lilly – it’s so square and she rarely makes dresses for me. I LOVE the prints though, so I grab accesories!

    I had no idea what Lilly was until three years ago. No I wasn’t living under a rock, lol. We have a store that I have walked past a gazillion times, but never thought to walk in. I worked with a girl who had a part time job there, she always wore the cutest clothes to work. Anyway, I commented one day on something, she told me to come see her…Wow are they $$ I have bought three things from there, none of which were for myself, but my daughters.

    i love the bag you paired with this outfit! Lilly always has such vibrant prints that it’s tricky to add accessories without it being “too much,” but the white pant, criss-cross flats and that boxy bag are perfect with the blouse!

    I have actually not shopped at Lilly Pulitzer, but I have aways admired their designs. They kind of remind me of another designer that I adore: Trina Turk. I’m going have to take advantage of their After Christmas Sale one year!

    Oh I don’t think I’ll ever brave the Lilly Pulitzer sale… I’m not a fan of in-store shopping at all – especially on days like LP sale or Black Friday and the like…
