Y’all some girls spend their days dreaming of fantasy weddings and decorating baby nurseries… I spend my days dreaming of the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale!! 🙂 Why?? because it is the BEST sale of the year! Lilly hardly ever runs discounts on her merchandise, so two times a year (fall and spring) she hold these blow out sales to let us Lilly lovers snag our favorite pieces at a discount! However, the After Party Sale is no joke (and not for the faint of heart or the impatient) so I love sharing my tips and tricks with y’all to ensure you have a smooth shopping experience. Keep reading to see how I successfully navigate the sale every year!

Get your account up to date: The website will be down for maintenance from 7-8 am (and sometimes even earlier) so if you want to get your account accurate (which I recommend) you will need to do it before then! So, log on today, enter you payment information/shipping address (nothing worse than having to scramble to find your credit card), and then Monday all you have to do is press “pay” & your treasures will be yours!

Make a list of your must-haves: Like the past few sales, everyone will be placed in a virtual “line” to enter the sale and after you checkout you will be sent to the back of the line. So although you can still place multiple purchases (all shipping is FREE!) know that they can’t be one after another! This means that your first purchase has to count- so fill it with those pieces you can’t live without! I recommend checking out the website today

Know when it ends: This year’s sale will run three full days and will end Wednesday, September 12th. Make your sale time count! Unlike past sales they will NOT be restocking or adding new styles to the sale, so the earlier you can shop the better!


Sort by Size- What fun is it to fall in love with an item when it doesn’t come in your size? (No fun that’s what!) So make sure to sort by size when you log in so you don’t waste precious time looking at things that won’t fit! (Don’t know what size you are? I recommend stopping at your nearest Lilly store today and trying on a few things for fit!) Also, all sale items are final sale- so make sure you’re sure before checking out!

Have Shipping Patience: As you can surely imagine, there are TONS of orders that are being processed from the sale. You’ll hear fabulous stories about customers that get their orders in 1 day… but that’s not the norm! Shipping can often take up to three weeks (one of mine took four earlier this year), so have some patience… and wait excitedly by the mailbox!

Keep it in perspective: This sale is a blast- no one is going to deny that! But at the end of the day, it’s just that… a sale. There’s a good chance the site may crash or you may miss out on an item you wanted, but the Lilly team is doing us fans a huge benefit by offering these amazing deals! So don’t get angry- get shopping! 🙂
