I decided to show off one of my shift dresses from Lilly’s summer prints in this post because the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale is on August 22nd! For the last three years, I’ve woken up bright and early on a Monday in August for what has to be my absolute favorite and most stressful sale of the year. I have become a seasoned veteran, and have learned some tips and tricks to get what you want before things sell out.
- Get online and ready earlier than the sale starts. Last year I got up 15 minutes before the sale started, and I waited almost 45 minutes in the virtual waiting room to get into the sale. This is valuable time you could use shopping! I don’t know exactly what time they start the waiting room, but getting into it as early as possible is the best way to get in without waiting.
- Pick out what you want before the sale starts. Normally, the sales have styles from the most recent passed seasons, and even some dating back even further. So I’m not browsing aimlessly once I get into the sale, (ain’t nobody got time for that) I pick out my favorite prints and styles beforehand so that I know exactly what I’m looking for.
- Check other websites for sale items. Lilly Pulitzer’s website is not the only place you can find great deals on their products. During the sale, 6pm, Amazon, and some of the signature stores usually have sales as well. I usually google Lilly Pulitzer signature store the day of the sale, and go through all the ones that come up and see what their deals are. Usually I can find some steals that aren’t even on Lilly’s website.
If you have any other questions about the sale, I would love to answer them through the comments below! Happy Shopping!
