It is time ladies!!!!!! The day us avid Lilly lovers look forward to every year. The only time Lilly goes on sale. Two times a year, like clockwork. I think this sale is better than the one that is in August, because Resort was released recently, and those are the more "luxurious" items, and to get them on sale is like the BEST THING EVER!!!! Although there is usually more items available in August (dresses, tank tops, shorts, and SO MUCH MORE), I think the best items (sweaters, popovers, leggings, old gift with purchases, etc.) will be in this sale...
Now for the tips:
The sale will go live at or around 8:00 A.M. You will be placed in a virtual line. Once you're in the line, DO NOT REFRESH YOUR BROWSER!!!! You will then be redirected to the end of the line. Use the Lilly Pulitzer app and lillypulitzer.com. The app usually is faster, but will crash often. Use as many devices that you can. I personally use 2 iPads, my MacBook, and my iPhone.
Create an account with Lilly and make sure your billing address, shipping address, and credit card(s) are all correct. This will make checking out SO MUCH EASIER and not as stressful.
The items that are in your cart are NOT reserved. If you find something that is in your size and in stock that you just can't live without, check out and then get back in line. I have waited and looked around the site and then missed out on the item that I wanted (like the gizelle maxi that I wore for homecoming. I had to buy it from eBay.)
Everything that you buy is FINAL SALE. Don't just buy to buy, you'll be stuck with it.
HAVE FUN!!!!! This is such a fun event, and for most it can be very stressful. Just remember, it is just clothes, and if you're like me, you have more than enough as it is.
Items will take 6 weeks (for the most part) to arrive to you. BE PATIENT!!!!! Nothing is more annoying to Lilly (I'm sure) then getting calls EVERYDAY about order status. THOUSANDS of orders are received during this sale and the wonderful Lilly employees are working extremely hard to get orders out as fast as they can. It will take time and Lilly expresses many, many times that there is a 6-8 turnaround for orders.
Shop in store as well!!! Call or visit your favorite Signature store, or Corporate store. Also, GUESS WHAT!!! Amazon and Zappos also participate in APS, AKA two day shipping!!! YAY!
This is my 5th year (I think) shopping the APS. I look forward to it every year. May the odds be ever in your favor, and of course, Happy Shopping.
