Set your alarms, put in your PTO and prepare your bank accounts! The After Party Sale is right around the corner! For Lilly lovers, this is the most important day of the year! There will be deep discounts on your favorite pieces as low as $50! Here are 6 things to know BEFORE shopping the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale.
My first time to shop the After Party Sale, I initially had a game plan and it worked extremely well. (Check out this blog for more tips!) But what some of you may not know is at my previous job, Lilly Pulitzer was one of my clients. While working for them, I learned a lot of insider tricks that are helpful for the sale.
6 Things to Know Before Shopping The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale
1. New Releases Throughout The Day(s)
Things sell out super quickly, but Lilly releases new sales throughout the day. So if you missed a favorite don’t be afraid to go back later in the day to see new items. And if you go back, there is a better chance you won’t have to wait in line.
2. Website Crashing
There’s a 99% chance of the website crashing. Being on the other side, I get it. Servers just can’t handle the traffic all at once. Lilly knows this and we know this, so save mean tweets and comments and focus on getting back in line as quickly as possible.
3. Once You Purchase You Will Be Placed Back In The Line
Once you make a purchase you are placed back in the digital line, so make your first purchase a good one! Then get back in line and keep on shopping!
4. Nothing New Is Ever On Sale
Nothing that is currently on the website will be on sale. I recommend going online or in store to see what is your favorite silhouette so you know what you’re looking for.
Lilly also has a guide to Lilly Essentials and gives you key points you should know about silhouettes, fit and styles. Learn More here!
5. Be Patient
Last year, I got in line at 7:45 AM ET (which is 6:45 AM CT which is a dedication for a non-morning person) and I didn’t get into the sale until about 11 AM. Sooo either secretly shop from your desk and go ahead and put in the PTO request now to ensure you will have enough time to shop.
An insider tip I learned from a friend is that Zappos will also have After Party Sale items and you can stock up there for potentially faster shipping, additional stock and you can layer with other discount codes.
Personally I’ve never shopped the After Party Sale on Zappos but I know a lot of people do!
