The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale is one of my favorite sales of the year. I am a Lilly girl and an avid sale shopper, so naturally, I wait for this every year. During my ad agency life, Lilly Pulitzer was one of my clients so I was fortunate to gain a little extra knowledge and probably loyalty during that time. I did pick up some helpful tips when shopping the After Party Sale, read all my tips here.
Just personally from shopping this sale over the years I have also learned the items to splurge on, stock up on and pass on. Here are the 7 Things To Stock Up On During the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale.
7 Things To Stock Up On During The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale
1. Elsa Tops
The Elsa Top is a Lilly Pulitzer classic, every Lilly girl needs one of these in your closet. If you are a new Lilly lover, I highly recommend making this style your first piece. Lilly is known for their bold bright prints, but there are some tamer options available.
2. Shift Dresses
Shift Dresses are a staple for any Lilly girl. Lilly Shift dresses will normally cost you around $200, but during the sale, they’ll range from $50 to max $100. This is a great way to stock up or purchase your first one and see how you like and how often you wear it.
The Lilly agenda planners are gorgeous! My personal fave from college, during the sale they always have them for $5 and $10. These would also make perfect back to school teacher gifts. They are 18-month planners, so you could even gift them at Christmas.
Lilly Pulitzer’s popovers are perfect for those cooler 70-ish degrees days where you need a lightweight pullover, but still want something cute. You can get a lot of wear out of them in the upcoming transition weeks.
Last year’s sale was the first time I bought sweaters and I was pleasantly surprised. This got me a lot of wear especially during the colder months when I couldn’t wait to wear my typically Lilly pieces.
I bought a navy puffer vest a few years back for super cheap and wore it all fall and winter. This is the perfect way to shop the sale and get the items to last through the upcoming months.
During the February Sale, I bought a silk necktie scarf on a whim, it’s probably my most worn item. I think it was around $25 and honestly, I regret not buying multiple. If you are just dipping your toe in the Lilly phenomenom this is a perfect place to start. This would also look GORGEOUS framed in an office or little girls room. This is going to be my first item in my cart this year.
7. Exclusive Prints
Lilly Pulitzer has several pop up prints throughout the year and if you missed them the first time they will likely be in the After Party Sale. Don’t hesitate to buy because they will go quick!
