Wine Down + S'mores + After Party Sale

Every month, people in my town celebrate the first Saturday with unique seasonal activities. January's theme helps people "Wine Down" from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Over 20 local businesses offered relaxing activities, some with wine, during the popular evening event.

A little bit of cold rain didn't stop John and me from enjoying the evening. Small businesses enticed visitors with treats including chocolate truffles and s'mores along with a sample of wine. The campfire goes glamorous in the courtyard of Volt restaurant...glamping. One of the few things that I enjoy about camping is the ability to make the best s'mores.

My favorite stop of the evening was Flights of Fancy. At this delightful store, we sipped wine while we made nautical wine charms. What a fun and easy idea! It took only a few minutes to make the charms and they look amazing.

Today is the day that you've been eagerly awaiting! The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale begins in just under 2 hours. If you haven't read my tips for the sale, you can read them here. The most important thing that you need to do is make sure that you have set up an account on Lilly Pulitzer's website. This will allow you to check out quickly.

In previous sales, there have been glitches in the website because of the tremendous volume of traffic. If you get booted off the website, don't despair. Keep trying the site and watch the Lilly Pulitzer page on Facebook for updates. You could also shop at Lilly Pulitzer signature stores online; many posted their sale prices last night at midnight.

Another bit of advice...because of the large number of orders during the sale, it may take longer than usual for your order to arrive to you. Check your account to see the status of your order. You'll get a confirmation email after placing an order. At this point, it will be processing. I have had orders at this stage for almost a week. When your order ships, the account will be updated with tracking information.
