Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale Details, Tips, and Favorites

For all you sale shoppers out there looking to brighten your closet and your Monday, the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale is back starting Monday, September 9th at 8:00 am. The sale will run through Wednesday, September 11th at 11:59 pm and new items will be added throughout the sale. 'I've loved shopping the sale myself in the past and wanted to share my best tips (and favorite recent Lilly finds at the end of this post) with y'all in preparation! 


1. Create an account and update your information before the sale starts. 
If you're even considering shopping the sale, this is not a suggestion but almost a requirement. Being logged into your account and having updated information before the sale begins will allow you to check out right away hopefully helping you snag more items you're dying to have. If you don't already have an account, you can create one here, and you can log in here.

2. Get to the site before the sale begins.
I constantly like being early to things, and this sale is no different. While the sale doesn't officially begin until 8 am EST getting there early will hopefully help you to be one of the first people in line. 

3. If there's something you love know that items in your cart are not reserved and it could be done if you linger before checking out. 
If you find that one item you hoped would be included in the sale and it's in your size, and that's all you wanted don't waste your time seeing what else you can get. GO AHEAD AND CHECK OUT! While it would be nice for items in your cart to be reserved, it's likely that Lilly lovers wouldn't leave their computers all day since they'd be scrolling through the sale pages to make sure they don't miss anything. That being said, since there is a virtual line, if you do choose to check out you will then be placed back in the line so you won't be able to continue to browse. It's kind of a catch 22. That's why my browser looks the way it does (as shown below) during the sale. 

4. Once in the virtual line, do not refresh your page.
This is just like elementary school in that you can't skip anything and if you get out of line you'll be hanging in the back. Once you've made it into the virtual line, definitely don't refresh. I do like opening multiple tabs to shop this sale. Most of the time, my browser looks a bit like this:

5. Have favorites in mind and have an idea of your size.
Knowing what you want or if there is a realm in which your closet is lacking will help you to avoid going too overboard during the sale. Additionally, make sure you're buying things in your size unless you love an item enough to go to the trouble of getting it altered. One little hint is to click the sale once you've gained access and narrow down by size using the filters on the site! 

6. Be Polite
If the site does crash be polite. The Lilly team wants the sale to go as smooth as possible, so harassing them with disappointed tweets isn't helpful. It's just a sale, and it should be fun!

Below you can find some of my current favorite pieces to browse while you wait. I'd love for you to share what you get if you're shopping in the comments!
