Well hello... how have these first three days of 2019 been treating you so far?

January can be really rough.  As my friend Ellen said, "The kitchen no longer smells like cookies that are baking, the Christmas music ended FAR too abruptly and the friends and family have gone home."

There is one thing to look forward to in the coming days....The Lilly Pulitzer after party sale.

Lilly Pulitzer never puts their items on sale save for 4 days per year. 2 days in the winter and two in the summer.
Nowadays, every retailer is ALWAYS having a sale. There are some stores where nobody ever has paid the price on the tag. The store never intended for anyone to pay the price on the tag. Un-sugar coated... its a scam.
This is where the Lilly After Party Sale is different. Its a true sale. Dresses which normally cost over $200 will be priced at $40 or $50.

Above is a sneak peak provided by Lilly of styles which are included in this sale. Although, I'd bet that this doesn't even scratch the surface. 

Here are a few pointers to help you to score the Lilly goods that you want.

  • The sale starts at 8:00 am  EST on January 7th, 2019.
Be logged into  Lilly Pulitzer   at 8:00 am. You will be given a virtual place in line at that time. Do not log out and log back in, do not refresh your browser. Just (try) to be patient. As soon as its your "turn" you'll be brought into the full site.
  • Once you are in, act fast. 
Click on what you want, add it to your cart and then check out as quickly as possible. The item is not "yours" until you have checked out. This is not the time to leave something in your cart to "mull it over". It will be gone if you do that. Having it in your cart does not reserve the item.

  • Check in on Monday and Tuesday.
Lilly has confirmed that new items will be added on Tuesday morning. If you see everything you like on Monday, great! If not though, don't despair. It might be there Tuesday.

  • Set up an account on Lilly prior to the sale.
This will make checking out much smoother and more likely to guarantee you get everything in your cart. Now is not when you want to waste time inputting your address and payment info

  • Decide on a budget before hand, and hold firmly to it.
I know, I know...This is the least fun  part, but probably the most important thing to remember. Its SO easy to get swept away with "I'll take this! "I'm getting that!". When you can buy something you really want for $30 that up until now, its been $280. .. Its REALLY hard to tell yourself "no". However, at the end of the day, these are (REALLY great) clothes. Clothes are not something to go into debt over.
Set an amount that you are comfortable spending and DON'T exceed it.

That's it from me. I hope this is helpful and I hope you can get yourself some Lilly to brighten up you winter!
