Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale

Happy Sunday Friends! I'm so excited that the Lilly Sunshine Sale is almost here.  l hope that this post will serve as a resource for you while you navigate the upcoming sale.  I'm so honored that the Lilly Pulitzer team asked me and a few other influencers to share this exclusive news with you all again. And it's because of you that I'm able to share this exciting announcement, so thank you very much for all of your support. 

What is the LILLY SUNSHINE SALE?

The Lilly Sunshine Sale is the same thing as the After Party Sale (APS) that we are all familiar with over the past several years. Lilly Pulitzer changed the name from the After Party Sale because this sale will be ONLINE ONLY.  Due to COVID-19, Lilly Pulitzer is following the CDC guidelines regarding safety, since it isn't feasible to the stores to accommodate the large crowds that the sale usually generates.  

This sale is a semi-annual event where Lilly Pulitzer places items on major discount, usually 30% - 50% off their original price tags! Hundreds of items are included in the sale, but inventory sells out very quickly. If you're looking for dresses for you next special occasion, a cute top to wear in the  office or work from home, or even loungewear or workout clothes, then the Lilly Online Sale is the best time to grab all things Lilly Pulitzer!

When is the LILLY SUNSHINE SALE?
The Lilly Online Sale begins Monday, September 13th around 8:00 am (ish) EST and will run through 11:59 pm EST on Tuesday, September 14th. 

Click HERE to Shop the Sale (Starting 8ish Online on Monday, September 13th)

How to get ready for the LILLY SUNSHINE SALE?
Be sure to have a Lilly Pulitzer account set up and make sure that your shipping, billing, payment information is correct.   If you don't have one yet, then head over to the website now to create an account.  If you set up your account ahead of time, then you'll save a ton of checkout time and increase your chances of getting everything in your cart.

How to shop the LILLY SUNSHINE SALE?
Once the sale gets started and you enter the Lilly Pulitzer site, you are automatically placed in the virtual line. No matter how high your number is, please DO NOT REFRESH your browser. You will loose your place in line and will be moved to the very back of the line. I also wanted to let you know that you can only check out once during that session. After you check out, then you’re placed back at the end of the line. 

Quick Tip: If you’re desperately looking for a certain item, then try using multiple devices - phone, tablet and laptop.  You can also ask your friends/family/husband to get in on the fun to help you.

Will styles and sizes get restocked?
The short answer is NO! Once an item sell out, it is usually gone for the remainder of the sale. However, you can try calling signature Lilly stores and Lilly retail stores to see if they will ship the items to your home. You can also check out a few other retailers for price matching options like Zappos, 6pm.comNordstrom and Amazon.

Quick Tip: Be sure to check the Lilly website a few times during the sale, because Lilly is going to release 2nd capsule on Tuesday, September 14th.

A Few Other Helpful Tips:

Set a Budget - Be smart and set a budget for the sale. It's easy to get caught up with all of the fun pieces when the sale goes live.  However, unlike many other sales this one is FINAL.  So be sure to pay attention to how much you want to spend and how much you can spend. There is no reason to go into debt or rack up your credit card bills for this sale.

Make a Wish List - I think that creating a wish list is helpful because it helps you stay on track with your spending.  This time around, I'm only looking for a few items - this dress, these leggings and this top. Once I get those in my cart, then I may look at some accessories as gift ideas for the holidays. 

Know Your Sizes - Since I wear Lilly a lot I don't worry too much about sizing when I order online. Certain items do run a little big and that's when I rely on the review from other customers! For reference, I’m typically a S or M in tops and a size 6 or 8 in dresses at Lilly. If you’re unsure about your size, then you can review the size chart HERE! Also note that if you purchase something that doesn't fit, you can try to resell it to other Lilly lovers on Lilly Facebook groups, Poshmark or eBay. 

At the end of the day, just remember that it's just clothes and there will always be another sale.  So don't worry if you miss out on this one. If you are shopping the sale, then be sure to wake up early, grab a cup of caffeine, take a deep breath and have fun!!!

Want a Sneak Peek?
Anyways, here are a few of the top styles that will go live September 13th! I can't wait to see all of the goodies early Monday morning!  What are some pieces that you're hoping to see go on sale?

Look of the Day: Summer Eyelet Dress

 This post is in partnership with Walmart Fashion!

Happy Saturday Friends! Today I'm sharing few summer styles that I'm loving from Walmart

I don't know about you, but I've been checking out the Walmart website a lot lately for summer fashion finds.  I picked up a few pieces here and there over the past few months and I haven't been disappointed. Once I saw that this cute eyelet dress was restocked, I added it to my cart immediately. You know how much I love a flirty summer dress. This little white flutter sleeve dress is only $16 and it comes with pockets. It's perfect to wear to any fun gatherings that you have left for the summer and any vacation plans. I also think it could transition into the fall season with some cute booties and a denim jacket. 



I also picked up this cute Free Assembly Sleeveless U-Neck Midi Dress in the striped print. The fit is a little relaxed, so be sure to size down if you wanted a more fitted look. This print also comes in a cute Short Sleeve T-Shirt Dress option and it's under $20.  I also found this "Homegrown" graphic tank for $8 during a recent visit to Walmart along with my jeans that I found on clearance.  




Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring today's post! As always, all opinions are my own.

2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Early Access Details

Happy Monday Friends! If you have been a Moody Girl In Style reader for a while, then you know how much I love shopping the The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  If you aren't familiar with the sale then check out all of the details that I'm sharing below. 


*note: this post contains affiliate links.

WHAT IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?

Nordstrom holds the Anniversary Sale every summer to feature some new fall and winter items that are usually marked down about 35  to 40% off. This is the best time to check out the new fall styles for the season and stock up on some wardrobe basics and splurge-worthy pieces like boots, jackets, handbags and high-end denim.  And you can save on lots of well known brands like SPANX, Sam Edelman, Tory Burch, Free People, Madewell, North Face and so much more!  

VIRTUAL CATALOG PREVIEW

The best way to get ready for the #NSale is to know exactly what's included this year.  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Preview makes it easy to review and pre-shop all of the items that are available.  If it isn't your turn to shop, then you can save all of your favorites to your wishlist until it's time to checkout. Here are some of my top picks that I have my eye on so far.  Some of them I already own and there are few currently on my wishlist:



DATES YOU NEED TO KNOW

Early Access is a special perk reserved for Nordstrom cardmembers. The Nordy Club level is based on yearly spend amounts, though all cardmembers automatically start at Influencer status. You can only shop Anniversary Sale Early Access as a cardmember on the following dates: July 12: Early Access for cardmembers with Icon status; July 14: Early Access for cardmembers with Ambassador status; July 16: Early Access for cardmembers with Influencer status and July 28: Anniversary Sale opens to the general public - Everyone.

HOW TO SHOP EARLY ACCESS

The best way to shop the sale before everything sells out is making sure that you have Early Access.  Nordstrom Cardholders have the opportunity to shop the sale about 2 weeks earlier than everyone else. But don't worry if you don't have a Nordstrom card, because the sale is open to the public on July 28th and some of the item will be restocked.

If you don’t already have a Nordstrom Credit Card, then you will need to sign up here to gain early access. And if you apply for the Nordstrom Card before July 10th, then you will get a $60 bonus note that can be used at a later time. 

SHOPPING STRATEGY

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale can be very overwhelming, especially if you don’t have a plan in place.  I think number one thing that you should do is to assess your fall wardrobe and make a list of items that you need to add/replace in your closet. And the second thing that would be helpful is to set an overall budget for yourself.  It’s really easy to get caught up in the excitement of the sale and spend more than you intended.  Remember - that this sale happens every year, so 

Pro Tip: Buy Now, Return Later - With that being said, don’t be afraid to order multiples sizes since some items sell out really fast and the shipping/return is free.  Be sure to focus on items that you use regularly and take advantage of stocking up on wardrobe basics and any home items.  This is also a good time to start thinking of holiday gifts.

WHAT SHOULD I BUY?

I’ve been shopping the Anniversary Sale for a few years now and I’ve noticed that Nordstrom tends to bring back some of the same items.  They may tweek an item here and there, but for the most part some are the same like these High-waisted Zella Leggings, this super soft Plush Throw, the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings, this Madewell Kent Colorblock Cardigan and the infamous Barefoot Dreams In the Wild Throw and this year's new floral design.  

This year I plan to be very focused on things that I need to replace in my closet and a few items that I missed out on last year.  I plan to look for a really good pair of jeans, a couple of sweaters, basic t-shirts, a skirt and a couple of shoes.  Below are a few collages with more #nsale items that caught my eye!
















I hope this post has been helpful for those of you who plan to shop the sale. Stay tuned for an upcoming try-on session on my blog/Instagram and various collages in my LIKEtoKNOW.it account throughout the week.  And be sure to check back on the blog as I plan to update it with additional #nsale content over the next few weeks. 

As always, thank you for reading Moody Girl In Style and shopping my links! If you have any other questions, leave them in the comments!!

Five Summer Dresses From Walmart!

This post is in partnership with Walmart Fashion!

Happy Wednesday Friends! Today I'm sharing some of my favorite summer dresses and footwear styles from Walmart

I don't know about you, but I'm very excited that we're transitioning back into the world and that we finally have places to go and people to see this summer.  Since so many of us are traveling and making plans for the beach or a backyard barbecue, I thought it would be great time to show you some of the new dresses that I picked up from Walmart over the past couple of months. And don't be surprised to see these dresses a few more times in the next few months, they will be on repeat all summer long.

If you're looking to update your wardrobe and you don't want to break your budget, then you're in the right place. Walmart has several amazing brands right now and they have become my new go-to destination for affordable summer fashion.  One of my favorite Walmart fashion brands is the Free Assembly line for men and women. It's a newish brand that is committed to sustainability with responsible sourcing and considered design. They offer wide selection of eco-friendly fabrics (including organic cotton and recycled polyester) and an inclusive size range. Another one of my favorites is the Scoop line which carries some of the latest fashion trends without putting a dent in your wallet. You can find lots of flirty summer skirts & dress and some of the best heeled sandals in the collection.

Anyways, here are a few of my Walmart pieces that are currently on rotation and I'm going to add a few more that caught my eye lately. Check them out and let me know what you think.


This Free Assembly t-shirt dress is perfect to wear now with some sandals and a cute straw hat on a hot summer day.  And later as we transition into the cooler fall season. Just add a denim jacket and some booties and you are good to go. This t-shirt dress is made from 100% organic cotton and it's a little thicker than your average t-shirt material. This dress fits true to size and I'm wearing a medium.  


This Free Assembly maxi dress is so well made and you can't beat the price. Unfortunately this dress is currently sold out, but various sizes tend to pop back up from time to time. So keep your eye out for it. This one fits true to size and I'm wearing a small. 


This Scoop color block trapeze sundress is one of my favorite purchases this summer. The cut of this dress is timeless and the sherbet colors just scream ready for fun. It's a light and airy dress that's perfect to wear with these $20 Scoop espadrille wedge sandal. Just add this cute cowboy hat to complete the look. This dress fits true to size - I'm wearing a small.


This Time and Tru double v-neck shirttail dress is so versatile and easy to wear this summer.  It has a lightweight cotton material that is very comfortable. I think this would look so cute paired up with a denim jacket tied around the waist with a cute straw hat or add a blazer to dress it up a little more.  I think this dress runs a little big - I'm wearing a small. 


This Time and Tru flutter sleeve tiered dress is perfect to throw on for any just about any occasion this summer.  It's a simple lightweight dress that's super comfortable.  It comes in about 7 different colors and it runs a little big. I'm wearing medium here, but I could have sized down to a small.
