The Lilly Pulitzer Summer Sunshine Sale is THE sale of the year for Lilly Pulitzer lovers! This is the best sale, with the best prices, you’ll find all year! Read on to learn all about my Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale Tips, Tricks, & FAQ. Happening September 12th at 8 am EST, this will be the best sale of the year, and you won’t want to miss it!
Q: How do I access the sale?
A: Click here to be taken directly to it!
Q: Is the sale in store too?
A: Yes, but local stores don’t have the same selection/stock as the online sale, so be sure to shop both!
Q: Can I shop on my tablet or phone?
A: Yes! Download the Lilly Pulitzer app and set up your shipping and payment information to expedite check-out.
Q: Once I put an item in my cart, is it guaranteed to be mine?
A: No. Items might sell out and vanish from your cart before you can check out. Only once your order is placed are you guaranteed your item(s).
Q: How does the electronic queue work?
A: To prevent their website from crashing, Lilly only allows so many people into their sale at one time. So, the rest are placed in a queue. Join early (click here) to get in line first. Don’t worry; even if it says there are thousands or tens of thousands of people ahead of you, you’ll still get in quickly! I’ve never had to wait more than 30 minutes, and I’ve never missed out on my favorite pieces at a great discount!
What’s Included in the Sale
Q: Which prints will be in the sale?
A: See above for a small sampling of the colors and prints included in the sale. Many more will be included, including pop-up prints, and we may even see some older prints, too! It all depends on what the Lilly team has lying around. It’s like a treasure hunt!
Q: Are luxletic pieces, bags, dresses, skirts, and shoes included in the sale?
A: Yes! Everything Lilly normally sells will be included in the sale, including baby, swim, and gifts!
Q: Will sample items be included in the sale?
A: There was quite a stir a few years back when sample items (items not made en masse) were included in the sale. It hasn’t happened in several sales, but there’s always the possibility that they might again!
Q: Which sale is bigger, the January or September summer sale?
A: The summer sale is much bigger!
Q: How is Lilly’s sizing?
A: I wear my normal size (XS/S & 4) in Lilly Pulitzer clothing. Read the reviews to understand better which pieces might run more generously than others. Overall, I find their sizing very consistent, so you should be able to purchase your normal size.
Q: What if my size is unavailable or it sells out?
A: Once items are gone, they’re gone! So, if you see something you love – snag it!
Q: How can I find items that are available in my size?
A: Filter using the left sidebar to sort items available in your size!
Q: Will items be restocked, or new items be added on the second day?
A: Based on the preview they sent me and that some items say “DAY 2 Drop”, new items WILL be added the second morning! When they’ve done this in the past, it happened around 8 am EST.
Q: What if I buy something that doesn’t fit me?
A: All sales are final, so they will not accept returns, BUT you can join my Lilly Pulitzer: Dressed to Impress Facebook Group where you can swap sizes, sell things that don’t work for you, and score stuff you may have missed in the sale! With more than 43,000 members, you’ll find someone to swap with, sell to, or buy from!
Payment & Shipping
Q: Can I use promo codes or gift cards during the Lilly Pulitzer Summer Sunshine Sale?
