Nothing like a good sale to kick off 2018! Lilly Pulitzer’s annual After Party Sale is back on Jan. 3 and 4 with a preview on Jan. 2 (today!). The sale starts at 8 a.m. ET on Jan. 3.
Lilly Pulitzer only goes on sale like this twice a year, so you don’t want to miss out on the chance to score an amazing deal. A lot of dresses tend to be under $100, which is a steal when we’re talking Lilly!
If you’ve never shopped the sale before make sure to check out the tips below to ensure you have the best chance to snatch up the items you want.
Log in and enter your credit card information the day before
The Lilly Pulitzer website will go down the night before the sale, so make sure to make an account, sign in and enter your credit card information on Jan. 2. This will speed up the checkout process so that you don’t lose any items in your cart before you can order.
Get up early and get online
The sale starts at 8 ET, so try to get online a few minutes before that. They will place you in a virtual line, which can sometimes be fast and sometimes be slow. Keep in mind, THOUSANDS shop this sale. I tend to get online on my laptop and my phone to try to maximize my chances. Once you’re in, make sure to shop it or else it will kick you to the back of the line!
All items are final sale
I’m not going to tell you how to determine whether or not to buy something that’s final sale, but it is good to keep in mind. You don’t want to spend too much time deciding if you want to purchase the item at the risk of losing your selected items. Speed is important! I would say buy it and then you can always sell it online. Keep in mind that Lilly Pulitzer resells well.
How do I know my size?
You can click here to find your true size in Lilly! Just take the survey and it will tell you what size you should order. Just so you know, in Lilly Pulitzer dresses I like to size up and then go get them altered. Sometimes the fit isn’t the best on my body type, so I like to have that extra room to take in and fit to my body. Not all dresses are the same cut, too. My favorite fit on my body is the Mila Shift, so that’s the dress I tend to order–especially when it’s a final sale! Tops and shorts fit true to size.
Shop quickly and check out one time
Once you get in the sale, it’s best to just get everything you want at once instead of having to get back in line. So be as decisive as you can as FAST as you can. You can look at the sale preview to get an idea of what you might want to grab!
Keep checking back throughout the sale for new additions
Lilly Pulitzer will add new items throughout the sale, so make sure to check back frequently! I like to make my initial purchase in the morning and then check back every few hours. The line tends to get smaller the longer the sale goes, so you won’t have to wait as long to see the new styles.
