As many of you know, Lilly Pulitzer hosts this huge blow out sale twice a year. One in August, and one… you guessed it… in January. Which means today is the best day of 2016 to get a few key Lilly pieces for your spring and summer wardrobe! Here are a few must-know pointers that the Lilly team put together…
1. STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND HEAD HERE TO CREATE AN ACCOUNT. (If you already have one, log in now and make sure everything’s up to date!)
Be sure to load in all of your payment and shipping information, so that you can check out immediately tomorrow morning. Items virtually fly off the shelves, and not having to waste valuable seconds on manually typing those details in is super important. Why? Because Lilly doesn’t hold items in your cart!
2. SET AN ALARM FOR 7:55 EST AND REFRESH YOUR BROWSER ON THE LILLY PULITZER SITE UNTIL 8:00 AM.
Because this sale is so wildly popular, Lilly usually enforces a “virtual waitlist” so the site doesn’t crash. (Yes, really!) That means, the quicker you log on, the earlier you’ll be able to shop the sale and scoop up the most popular items!
Create a priority list of patterns and silhouettes you’re especially dying for, and be sure to filter your search results by your size. That way you don’t have to wade through hundreds of pieces that might not even be available to you!
4. HAVE FUN!
This sale is always hectic, but always a blast. I have definitely missed out on a few things I was dying for because of how quickly everything sells out, but at the same time have scored some amazing deals that I’ve kept in my closet for years! It’s one sale I *literally* wake up for, and I can’t wait to tell y’all what I end up purchasing. Heads up, everything is final sale, so keep that in mind. And don’t forget to check back in on the sale throughout the day, as the Lilly team updates the sale with new pieces regularly!

I hope everyone has had an enjoyable, first weekend of 2016! I am so excited for this year, and can’t wait to share more about why on the blog this week. See you all around here then! In the meantime, I’ll send you off with a few of my five favorite new arrivals from Lilly Pulitzer… (ok, anything and everything in the Peel and Eat print!)
Love from Texas,
