what i bought from the lilly after party sale

Last week, I had the chance to sneak into the Lilly Pulitzer Dallas store early to preview some of the styles featured in the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale that went live online yesterday morning! (See the full try on here!) There were so many gorgeous styles (see me try them all on here) but a few, in particular, stole my heart.

Today, I’m so excited to share what I bought from the lilly pulitzer after party sale in-store, and the online purchases I made yesterday!

The good news is that these dresses are still in stock in many sizes! (Yipee!!) The sale doesn’t end until Wednesday at midnight, so you still have time to get some shopping in!

the perfect tailgate dress

DRESS   lana skort romper

Spoiler alert, this is actually a romperThe second I tried this cutie on, I knew I’d found the perfect thing to wear to gamedays and all through fall.

It is so comfortable and flattering, and if your team colors don’t include navy, it also comes in white! (Which I ordered online as well!)

This fits true to size… I’m wearing an XS!

the timeless lilly shift

DRESS   mila shift dress

Every after party sale, I try to find one classic, timeless lilly shift. This darling number, complete with its menagerie print (can you spot a flamingo?!) in classic pink and greens, fit the bill perfectly!

This is one dress that will never go out of style. If you’re a budding lilly collector, be sure to add this to your wardrobe!

I went with a 0 instead of a 00 in this dress. Either order your normal lilly size or one up! It fits shorter than most lilly pieces, which I love. (I’m 5’2″)

the most flattering romper

ROMPER   tiki wrap romper   |   EARRINGS   lisi lerch tassel earrings

You can’t tell from the front, but this is actually a romper! And the most flattering one I have ever put on, at that.

This is one of those pieces that is a lot more wearable because of it’s solid coloring and flattering, trendy cut. Big prints not your thing? Meet your new favorite lilly piece!

This romper fits true to size. I’m in an XS!

the pink party dress

DRESS   devina dress

I am literally giddy over the fact that this dress, one that I’ve been eyeing all summer, is included in the sale!

Equal parts flattering and fun, this frock is a statement-maker and I’m here. for. it. I mean… $69?! Yes, please! I’m already looking forward to wearing it in the spring and summer of 2019!

This dress fits true to size. I’m in a 00.

the classic navy frock

DRESS   charlene shift dress   |   BOOTS   j.crew riding boots (similar here)   |   BAG   barrington st. anne tote bag

When I came across this dress, I immediately fell in love. Someone commented “kate middleton” on my YouTube try-on of it, and I couldn’t agree more!

It’s such a versatile, practical option for work and play this fall and winter. Style with ballerina flats while it’s still warm out, and transition into riding boots and scarves when it gets colder! At under $60, I’m tempted to say this is the best buy of the entire sale!

This dress fits a little big. I’m wearing my normal size, an XS, but if I had the option would have gone with an XXS!

Now that we’ve covered the pieces I bought in-store, let’s go through the online purchases I made yesterday! Click through this carousel to see them all.

Don’t forget, the sale doesn’t end until Wednesday night, so head here to finish up your shopping!

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!

    Great finds! I got the hooded skipper popover dress and I can’t wait to lounge in it all fall long! That and a cozy cashmere for when it’s cold. There were so many good finds this year, I couldn’t believe the inventory! xAllie

    Hey Kate! What size did you get in the pink seersucker Jesse romper?? I couldn’t decide on a size that was the right fit for me. I’m usually a 0 or sometimes 00. For rompers at Lilly I’m a 0 but depends on the fabric and fit.
