Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale
Everyone, it's HERE!!!!
Lilly Pulitzer just released the date and time of her Winter 2017 After Party Sale! January 5, 2017 at 8:00 EST- January 6, 2017 1:00pm EST (ISH).
For those of you that don't know, Lilly Pulitzer only has three sales per year: 2 online (usually August and January) and one warehouse sale at the warehouse in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. That's why it's such a big deal and SO necessary to prepare properly.
I want to quickly share a couple important steps to get ready for the sale:
1) Log in to your account (or create one if you don't already have one) the night before and make sure your default address and credit card information is updated... this will make the checkout process infinitely quicker.
2) Make sure your laptop, iPad/Tablet, and phones are all charged and ready to go.
3) The site will not go live until 8:00am EST on the dot so at 7:59am EST make sure to be continuously re-loading the site so that when 8:00 hits you are "in".
**** Disclaimer: you will likely be placed in a virtual line and will have to wait to get into the sale.
**** This is why it is crucial to log in on multiple devices
4) Once you enter the site, quickly refine your searches to your size (this ensures you don't waste time browsing through options that aren't actually available for your size).
5) BROWSE, BROWSE, BROWSE!
6) Note: your items are not saved for you once you place them in the cart. I recommend adding a few items on one device, checking out quickly, then shopping on your other devices that you've entered by waiting in line already.
7) Checkout and enjoy! Usually the shipping takes slightly longer because of the volume of sales, but not-to-worry- your Lilly will arrive in no time!
I've participated in the sale countless times and each time I'm amazed and elated at how wonderful the selection is and how absolutely amazing the price reductions are.
One other helpful tip for you Lilly Lovers out there is to check your other favorite places that sell Lilly because their sale items might go live EARLIER (usually around midnight). Here in D.C. we have a few Pink Palm stores, and historically I've been able to access their sale items at midnight with far less traffic, albeit a bit less selection than the actually Lilly site. I'd love to hear your comments below on your tips and tricks for the sale!
Happy Lilly shopping to all!
