The Inside Scoop on the Lilly Online Sale - Sept. 2020



Happy Saturday Friends! I'm so excited that the Lilly Online 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. Now here are a few tips to help you shop the sale:

What is the Lilly Online Sale?

The Lilly Online 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 Online Sale?
The Lilly Online Sale begins Monday, September 14th around 8:00 am (ish) EST and will run through 11:59 pm EST on Tuesday, September 15th. 

Be sure to bookmark the Lilly Pulitzer website now, so you're ready to shop bright and early on September 14th.

How to get ready for the Lilly Online 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 Online 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.com, Nordstrom 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 15th.

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 SizesSince 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!!!

The Best Last-Minute #NSale Fall Basics


Happy Friday Friends! The last day to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is this Sunday, August 30th and the prices go back up on Monday, August 31st.  This sale is the best time to stock up on some of your fall favorites for a limited time. So this is your official reminder to add those last minute deals that you've been thinking about to your cart now.  If you're still thinking about what to buy, then don't worry - I have you covered.  I rounded up 10 of my favorite fall basics that are still in stock and available in nearly all of the sizes offered (at least from the time of this post).  The leggings that I'm wearing here are my absolute favorites and they are still in stock in all sizes. Do still you plan to shop the sale? Let me know!

Blackout Tuesday - 25 Black-Owned Brands You Need to Shop


Buying Black should not be a trend that we all follow for one day each month on social media.  It should be something that we all do on a regular basis, but for some reason we don't. Today is another Blackout Tuesday dedicated to encourage you to support and shop from Black-Owned Businesses.   Making a commitment to regularly spend with Black businesses is one small way to pour into to your community and elevate new businesses.  This is the perfect time for us to be more mindful of where our dollars are being spent, who we are following and why we are following them.  In support of Blackout Day, I'm sharing 25 of my favorite Black-Owned Businesses that we can all support today and in the future.  I've purchased from a few of these brands so far and I have many items on my wishlist that are waiting for me to hit officially checkout.  And remember, if you're not able to make a purchase today, then simply like and save a few photos on the brands feed, follow them on Instagram or share with your friends. A little support goes a long way.

Let's make shopping Black owned businesses something that is normal, so we don't need a special day to call it out. Check out my list below and let me know what brands you'll be supporting.
