Lilly After Party Sale

Happy Monday readers!

I'm sure it comes as no surprise to y'all that the Lilly After Party Sale is enough to drag me out of the blogging cave I've been hiding in lately. I just couldn't resist sharing the amazingness that is this sale with you.


As you know, I've quit my job and don't have a new one lined up yet, SO, I have been pinching every penny lately. That being said, I just couldn't resist a little Lilly at great prices! My sale purchase will be the last fun purchase I make until I am employed!

Lilly changed up the process a little bit this year, to help avoid their typical site crash, and all in all, I'd say I'm happy with the process. They're only allowing a certain number of users to access the site at a time, so when you head over you are put in a virtual line. When I first checked in this morning around 8:00 am, when the sale started, I was behind some 68,000 people and it was saying wait time was more than an hour. I decided to log off, and just now tried again around 11:30. I got onto the site in less than a minute, and while a few things I had my eye on are gone, I was happy with the selection.

I ended up getting a bikini and pair of shorts, both of which I had wanted earlier in the season. I also, had tried both on earlier in the season, which was crucial as all sale items are FINAL SALE, so that made the purchases a win-win in my book!

I ordered a medium in both, and typically wear an XS/S and 4/6 in Lilly for your reference.

I also got these shorts which I have been dreaming of all summer long!
In these I wear a size 4, which is my usual Lilly size for shorts and skirts.

My order, with tax, totalled around $100, which you can't beat, especially considering the bikini alone would have set me back $136 at full price!

This Elsa sat in my cart for a while, but with a price point still at $99, 
I couldn't justify it given my current employment status.
In Elsas, I can wear an XS or S, and even have one M that I love and is a bit more flowy!

To shop other pieces I had my eye on, scroll through below!



Are you a Lilly lover like me?

  1. So I also logged on first thing and it said over an hour but I ended up getting in within 15 min. I got the girls a bunch of dresses and an infinity scarf for myself but the dress and shirt I wanted sold out before I had a chance to check out. Oh well! Loved the new system and found it free of frustration! Love your choices too!!

  2. What a cute suit!! I loved that Elsa but was in the same boat with my decision- maybe if the price was a little lower. I got a Janice shift and a different Elsa! I'm so impressed- I already got a shipping notification that my package is shipping out soon! I can't wait to get them!

  3. I bought the dress that is the same print as those shorts, an Iona shell, and a navy popover! They had some great items this year. I liked the fact that the website didn't crash, but I was refreshing Lilly like crazy until 8AM, but still had to wait 45 minutes to get in. That was a bit of a bummer.

  4. What great buys! Since I'm pregnant I was leery of buying anything for myself and by the time I got into the sale they only had a swimsuit for little girls (which I figured I could resist).
