Here’s the scoop. Your first step to get ready for the After Party Sale is to create an account or make sure that your account is up to date. By creating your account in advance, you’ll be ready to check-out easily and quickly. Speed is the key during this 2-day sale. The one who clicks fastest buys the dress!
Things are not held in your shopping cart during the sale. I’ve had things jump out of my cart while I was shopping. It’s true!
Decide which items are at the top of your list and shop for those first. Complete the check-out process quickly. Don’t worry about having multiple orders; it’s better to check-out early and often to ensure that you get what you want since Lilly Pulitzer has free shipping during the sale.
After clothing, I usually find my favorite things in the accessories category. In previous years, I’ve been able to pick up great birthday gifts and little treats as well as some specialty items like tablecloths. Many previous gift with purchase items are also available; a great perk of the sale, especially since we all can’t usually spring $1,000 for the GWP when it is offered. I expect that there will be a good amount of sorority items like scarves and dry erase boards. There might even be a gift with purchase this year.
The After Party Sale offers an opportunity to pick up some Lilly Pulitzer at a great price. Although the majority of the items are probably best suited for warm weather, there are many ways to “winterize” your Lilly. I add cardigans, tights, and boots to my favorite dresses so that I can wear them even on a cold day. Now that both of my girls are officially wearing women’s sizes, I plan to buy lots of shorts and skirts for them.
Although some items will sell out quickly, don’t worry if you are at work or school on Monday morning. The sale lasts until midnight on Tuesday, January 6 and it seems like new things appear for sale periodically throughout the event. Believe me, you’ll be able to find some great goodies and the prices are truly unbelievable. This year, Lilly Pulitzer stores will offer the online sale prices for merchandise that they have in stock at the store. If you have a corporate store close to you, it might be worth a trip to see what they have.
Visit this page on Monday for sale updates and to see some of my top picks from the event.
