Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale Shopping Tips + Try On Session

It’s the best Monday of the year! The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale starts TODAY! At 8am EST. I’ve collected a few Lilly dresses over the years [seen on the blog herehere & allllll the way back here] and ALL of them have been purchased during THIS sale! I own this dress & this dress from previous sales! It’s seriously the best time to score huge discounts on this brand. I’m talking $200 shift dresses marked down to only $74! 

The sale actually began in-store yesterday afternoon so I popped over to my local store in Georgetown! Yes the store was a little chaotic but WOW! I was blown away at just how much was included in the sale! I cannot wait to see how much more is available online today too. The store manager, Amy, was SO sweet. If you’re in the D.C. area you’ve got to go! Before we get to the try on session [FYI: There is a video at the bottom of this post too!!], here are my top tips for shopping the sale online today!

4 Tips for Shopping the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

1. Be patient! The Lilly Pulitzer website will have a wait time for you to gain access to the sale. This is so the site doesn’t get overloaded & shut down on you! [Maybe Nordstrom should take a hint ;)!] You will see how many people are in front of you in this virtual line + an estimated wait time. It DOES always go faster though! Don’t close your browser or you’ll lose your spot!

2. Shop quick! Once you add something to your cart, it’s NOT on hold for you. So if you must have it, check out quickly! And… EVERYTHING ships free!! However, after checking out you’ll have to get ‘back in line’ to shop again. So shop quick BUT shop smart too! 🙂

3. Narrow your search! There is so much inventory in the sale but not everything is fully stocked in all sizes. So shop quicker by using the site’s features to narrow your size! [or color/style preference

4. Have fun! This is such a good sale on a highly coveted brand! I feel like I’m saving so much money shopping this sale that I can use the money saved to plan a beach vacay to wear it all 😉 Perfectly logical right?!!

Alright… let’s get to the try on session! Below are my favorites I tried on in store yesterday! Several of these came home with me too! I’ll add direct links to these items as I’m able to get access to the site myself. 

Love this top with the tassel hem! It’s supposed to be slightly oversized. 
I’m wearing a size small.

This shift dress was the very first thing I added to my MUST HAVE pile. I love the palm print and the pom detail at the neckline is just too cute! 
I’m wearing a size 4. 

This is a classic Lilly knit dress. Obviously I love the bright pink! This is cute on it’s own but would look adorable with a kimono or cardigan over it too! 
I’m wearing a size small. 

When I was talking to the store manager, she said this cardigan was the first thing selling out! It’s SO cute & such a good price!! It’s oversized + has a cute layered fringe hem. The best part- it’s UNDER $40!! 
I’m wearing a size small in the cardigan. 

As for this tank… I love this navy blue print. It’s the perfect piece that will transition to Fall seamlessly! I’d wear this exact outfit for now but will pair this tank + sweater combo with jeans and riding boots in a few months when the temps are cooler!
They didn’t have a small in store so I got a medium in the tank and love the oversized fit. 

I clearly couldn’t get enough of this palm print! I love this style of dress with the sleeves. It’s also made out of the softest material! Since I got this print in the shift dress, I ended up getting this exact style of dress in a different print. 
I got a size small. 

I love solid color Lilly dresses! This one has a slight ombre effect that was hard to truly capture in pictures and video. But the tassels at the hem & the texture to the dress made this a MUST! 
I’m wearing a size 4.

This clutch is a classic piece to have in your closet! The gold color with a slight shimmer is SO pretty. It not only matches all of my Lilly dresses but will also pair with tons of other outfits in my closet. It’s also a great price under $50!

This shift dress has such fun details! It has a raffia material lining the neck as well as a zipper on the front. You could have the neckline as open or closed as you want! And how good is this pineapple print?! 
I’m wearing a size 6 in this dress. 

I think the Lilly Pulitzer shift dresses are my absolute favorite style. It’s a classic for the brand and something you will wear for years to come! This necklace is here

There are also TONS of great shorts included in the sale. I especially love the scallop pairs! Even though short season might be coming to an end for the year, it’s the best time to grab a pair for a STEAL to save for next year! Come March, you’ll thank yourself for those cute shorts you bought & forgot about through the Winter! 

I had never tried Lilly Pulitzer activewear before. It’s the same great prints & colors that every girl loves in soft and comfy styles! I love these leggings and the cute cutouts at the bottom!

Y’all! Shopping the sale in store was a little crazy but SO much fun! They had a DJ and the whole atmosphere was great!

The After Party Sale includes tons of Lilly Pulitzer accessories. Everything from phone cases to shoes to bags and jewelry! And you will definitely LOVE the prices too!

While I was in store I took a peek at all of their new arrivals for Fall! WOW! So many gorgeous pieces there too!

Be sure to brighten your Monday a little & go check out the Lilly Pulitzer sale! Keep those 4 tips in mind & get to shopping, girlfriend! Let me know if you have any sizing questions. I’d love to help y’all score some of these gorgeous pieces at these AMAZING sale prices!

  4. These are great tips, especially for the cart thing, because sometimes you think that they are on hold for you. I am loving that palm print on your dress, and that neckline is really pretty with those poms!
