Answering all your FAQ about the 2019 January Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale!
Hey friends! One of my very favorite days of the year is coming this Monday, January 7th… the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale!!!! Literally I get giddy with excitement over the sale and how great the deals are! If you’re new to Lilly, this is such an exciting time because the website NEVER goes on sale, except for the After Part Sale twice a year! Prices are up to 60% off and the deals are insane- all your favorites will be back for a fraction of the cost! I always get asked about my strategies for success in shopping the sale- so I’m sharing them with you in anticipation of Monday. Read up and get ready for the most fun Monday ever!!
TIPS FOR SHOPPING THE 2019 JANUARY LILLY PULITZER AFTER PARTY SALE:
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 TWO full days and will end Tuesday, January 8th. Make your sale time count! Unlike past sales they will be dropping lots of new styles on Tuesday morning- so it will actually pay to shop both days 🙂
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! 🙂
If you just can’t wait until Monday, stop by your local corporate or signature stores! They will be kicking off their APS sale pricing on Saturday so you can score your favorites before anyone else (if you can stand the crowds!)
