Ahhhhhh ladies!! Grab your credit cards & coffee and get ready to SHOP! It's finally time again for my favorite sale of the whole year, The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale. It only comes TWICE a year and is the only time Lilly ever goes on sale!
The Pre-Party Sale started in-store this morning at all corporate and most Signature stores! While APS will begin online starting Monday, Sept 9th and ending Wednesday, Sept 11th.
Tips and Tricks
Number One: Create or be sure to update your account on lillypulitzer.com. Be sure your cards, billing address, and shipping address are all correct. This will make checking out so much easier and way less stressful.
Number Two: Make a list of wants and must haves, plus be sure to know your size in these items. Also remember anything purchased during APS is FINAL sale (no returns), so don't buy unless you know how it will fit. I'm a size large or 14 in basically all Lilly (leggings, sports bras, popovers, and Ophelias) and wear a size XL or 16 in anything that runs fitted (shift dresses, Brewsters, and Sophies).
Number Three: Any items that you do not purchase in your cart will not be reserved. The best way to get around this is to shop on more than one device. Don't wait to check out until you have two or three items in your cart because chances are that if you do, they will be sold out by the time you are ready to check-out. All purchaces on Lilly's website have free shipping too!
Number Four: Be patient! Orders from the website are usually a six to eight week turnaround. There is so much work that goes into putting on this sale from all levels at Lilly, from floorset, changing the prices, taking orders, shipping, etc.. If you want something sooner, try to call signature and corporate stores. This is also a great way to ensure your orders don't get cancelled.
Lastly, have fun & happy shopping!! I am still on my hurrication at home in Pennsylvania and I'm so sad to not be working the APS, but don't worry, I am still shopping!!
