Lilly After Party Sale! Summer '17

Good morning friends! It's one of the best sale days of the year, the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale is here! For my best tips and tricks on how to shop, see this post from last summer's sale!

 ** Tuesday Update **
Even more new items have been added today!

This Jane Shift was just added in this print and the blue and white Canopy Choas print! Grab it quickly while sizes are still available!

Check out some of my favorites that were JUST ADDED here:

** 8pm UPDATE **

I didn't get a chance to shop the sale that much this morning since I finally got access when I was on my way out the door to work, though I did score this cashmere wrap (still available!) and these adorable PJ pants (only available in XXS)!
Limonada Cashmere Wrap $64

I just had another chance to hop on and there are still SO many great items that are still available! Here are a few of my favorites that are on my wishlist:

Drink Set $99

Society Social xx Lilly Pulitzer Bar Cart $499 (I'm all heart eyes over this!!)

Sleeveless Stacy Top $44
I feel like this top would work so well to transition into fall with a navy cardigan!

If you're like me this morning and still waiting in line to shop the LP site, here are a few deals I've found around other retailers! I'll be updating throughout the day when I can get onto the Lilly site so check back later!

I LOVE this print so much and was excited to find it on sale this morning!! I'm wearing a small in the Bohemian Beach pattern but there are a bunch of prints included on sale!

This dress is such an easy throw on dress and can so easily be dressed up with earrings (like my fav Lisi Lerch Ginger earrings) or can be worn as coverup!

I snagged this top on sale a couple weeks ago and love the bright guava color with white denim shorts. I'll be wearing it soon with dark jeans for fall!

Blog Update

Hey friends, long time no post! I've missed this colorful little space the last few months and want to dive back into more consistent blog posts this summer! I wish I had a good reason for why I haven't posted at all lately but honestly, it's just that I've wanted to spend less time in front of the computer screen at night. I do a lot of e-commerce  and social media work during my day job at Emily McCarthy Shoppe, which I love, but when I get home from work I have really enjoyed having some "unplugged" time. I hope some of y'all can relate and understand!

Like I mentioned though, I would really love to start getting blog posts back up here though at least once a week! Is there a specific day you really would love to read them? During the week? On the weekends? I haven't quite decided when my day will be but for now, I'm just excited to get back into the blogosphere!

Cheers! My favorite Emily McCarthy monogram stemless tumbler is perfect for boat margaritas!

If you have followed in the past, you may have seen a trend of my Friday bar cart posts so what better to share today than some of my bar carts from the last few months. If you like these kind of posts, hop over the The Pink Clutch today for an extra special pink & green Savannah meets Palm Beach bar cart post with my sweet friend Paige Minear!

Bar Cart // cocktail napkins from Pink Lion Dog

As you can tell, a good portion of my paycheck at Emily McCarthy has gone right back into the company in the form of cups and cocktail napkins but when you're around so many pretty designs, it's hard not to order a few things for yourself! ;)

Lilly After Party Sale - Time to Shop!

It's (almost) time to start shopping the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

8:00 am
I'll be updating this post throughout the day with sale items and I've rounded up a few favorites from other retailers while I'm waiting in line to shop!

8:40 am
It looks like the Lilly website has crashed from the large volume of customers trying to check out all at once. While you may be frustrated, understand that they are certainly trying to do their best to keep up with the volume but sometimes things just happen. Be patient, get some breakfast, and sign back in and see updates on Lilly's Facebook page. Like I mentioned earlier, you can still shop on Zappos and Amazon! The best part about these two retailers is that if something doesn't work out, they take returns!

Lilly Sale Eve - Tips and Tricks

The Lilly sale is almost here!!! Not familiar with the After Party Sale? Every year, in the first week of January, Lilly Pulitzer celebrates the new year with a big online sale! This online sale only happens twice a year (you may remember the other big one in August from this post!) These online sales are huge because items are typically drastically reduced and these are the only two times that you can buy Lilly on sale online!
The sale starts tomorrow (Thursday) morning at 8am EST sharp!

Not sure how to get ready?

Right now:
Log on to the Lilly website and log in to your account ahead of time. Make sure all of your billing information is accurate and shipping address is correct. 

Fill out a TrueFit sizing profile to know your size in different items. For reference, I'm typically a 4/6 and wear a S/M depending on how fitted I want the item to be. Most Lilly runs pretty true to size in my opinion.

Do a little research on what will be included in the sale. Since the last sale was in August and included items from Jan-June/July, this sale will likely include everything since then. 

Some of my favorite items from the end of summer/fall that I hope to see in the sale tomorrow!

Make a wishlist of anything you love so you can quickly search once you are into the sale in the morning.

What to do Thursday Morning:

You'll need to get ready a few minutes before (maybe about 15 minutes just to be on the safe side.) Head to lillypulitzer.com (there will probably be some kind of sale landing page until the sale opens) and when it gets close to 8am start to refresh your browser until the sale opens you are placed in a virtual line. It may look a little daunting when you are number 20,000 or something in line but I promise the wait goes quickly!

Once your into the site, shop quickly but be sure to grab everything you really want because after you checkout, you're placed in the back of the line. Luckily shipping is free so you can checkout however many times you'd like but know that items will sell out very quickly!!!

While you're waiting in line on the Lilly site or waiting for the clock to hit 8am, start checking other Lilly retailers like Amazon, Zappos, 6pm, Nordstrom, Saks, and Neiman Marcus (some sale items are already posted!) along with other signature stores nearby or online. I've mentioned this before but Cloister Collection in Athens and St. Simons as well as Palm Avenue in Charleston, Savannah, Raleigh, and Greensboro are my two go to places to shop because of the great gals that work there!
