Lilly Pulitzer Summer After Party Sale!




     Calling all Lilly lovers! The famous After Party Sale begins online at 8 am EST this morning, and ends Tuesday (tomorrow night) at 11:59 EST. Lilly Pulitzer owned retail stores (i.e. not signature stores or department stores that carry Lilly) are also participating in the sale during today and tomorrow, so you can also shop in store if you live near a Lilly retail store.


     I didn't really become aware of the Lilly Pulitzer brand until my senior year of high school (#MaineProbs), but from my freshman year of college on I have been a die-hard Lilly fan! I wore the gorgeous dress that's pictured above for college graduation and senior photos earlier this year. I also really enjoyed shopping the Lilly for Target collection launch back in Spring 2015... yes, I was one of the crazies who woke up at the crack of dawn to wait in line for their local Target to open! (It definitely paid off though- read more in this post.)


       If this is your first time shopping an After Party Sale and you're shopping today (especially first thing in the morning), you might notice the here will be a virtual line and queue. You might be given a waiting number that is in the high thousands, but don't be alarmed if so! Lilly does this process to monitor the traffic that's on their website at one time, and to try to prevent anything from crashing. Just take your number, wait your turn, and then be prepared to shop until you drop as soon as the website opens for you!


     The Lilly Pulitzer website has this special page which is dedicated to detailed After Party Sale FAQ's- this is a great resource for anyone who still wants to learn more!



     I'm linking here some super cute Lilly items that I think will be in the sale! I will continue to update this post through today and tomorrow with new sale items that I come across. I'll also be tweeting some of my favorite sale deals @rainbowflash94.







     Lastly- a little sale disclosure that I usually try to include some form of when I recap any type of sale. :-) Bloggers love to share the news about sales like this one, because it can be a great time to stock up or treat yourself! But for fellow gals on a budget (especially my high school and college readers): it is always important to consider your current financial situation before splurging on a big online sale such as this.  Since I made a large purchase just last month in this year's Nordstrom Sale, I'm only on the hunt for very low-priced items in the After Party Sale. If nothing fits my current budget this time around, that's okay! There will always be the winter sale, and I'll probably be able to splurge more then. So just a reminder that it's fun to shop sales, but if you're on a budget, only buy something if it's within your means and you know you will love it and wear it for months and years to come!



     Happy Shopping fellow Lilly lovers!

  4. I typically don't go for Lilly products because they're so much brighter than the rest of my wardrobe, but I do think they're all really pretty! Great picks!

  6. So many cute picks! I didn't shop the sale this year because I am trying to save all I can for the next few months but I totally would have if it wasn't for that.

  11. I love Lilly's bright signature colors! Also, I totally agree about the budget thing. I always find that it's hard to remind myself in the moment about my budget though, but I'm always glad when I do!

  15. Loved this post on the After Party Sale! More importantly, I love that you included about being smart about splurging. I know I always say I'm going to watch what I spend, but then still spend, spend away!
