Lilly Pulitzer recently announced that they’re hosting the first-ever “Lilly Pulitzer Dressed for Summer” sale, beginning Monday, June 29th at 8 am EST, ending on June 30th at 11:59 pm. This sale is online-only, meaning corporate stores are not participating in it, and not much other information was given.
Generally, Lilly Pulitzer only has sales twice a year; both are called the After Party Sale (or the APS), one in January and the other one at the end of August or beginning of September. Except for those two sales and a few clearance items in some signature and corporate stores throughout the year, Lilly Pulitzer clothing never goes on sale, so the Lilly Pulitzer Dressed for Summer Sale is a massive departure from how Lilly generally does business, and not much is known about this particular sale since they’ve never done this before.
Want to learn more about the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale to get a better idea about what to expect during the new Lilly Pulitzer Dressed for Summer Sale? Read my guide to the APS here.
All sales are final during this event, which means whatever your order cannot be returned. However, I have heard that savings will be up to 80% off, which is very similar to Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale, so you should be able to score some incredible deals.
If the Lilly Pulitzer Dressed for Summer Sale is indeed the replacement for the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale, then expect to find accessories for just a few dollars, clothing for 40-80% off retail, and prints from the last 3-4 seasons. Sometimes, Lilly Pulitzer also includes sample items, which are items they never mass-produced and have never been seen by the public before, and recuts, which are items in prints produced but cut into new styles like scalloped skirts or new dress designs. It could be a fantastic way to score a one-of-a-kind Lilly Pulitzerr gem if these items are included.
This sale will have you in a virtual queue, just like the APS, meaning that you should get to the website ASAP (I’ll post an announcement in my Lilly Pulitzer Dressed to Impress Facebook group when it’s time to “line up”), and should NOT refresh your page, or you will lose your place in line. I know people who quite literally call in sick to work on the day of the After Party Sale, so if you’re a big-time Lilly fan like me, it could be worthwhile to do the same. If nothing else, set your alarms for 8 am EST and get ready to shop!
With the other two Lilly sales, shipping can take up to 5 or 6 weeks, so be prepared to wait a bit longer for your packages. This sale is such an exciting event that I can hardly sleep the night before. I love stocking up on fun prints in unique clothing styles during this sale that I can wear for a lifetime of fun adventures and events.
While it’s not guaranteed that other retailers that carry Lilly will be participating in the Lilly Pulitzer Dressed for Summer Sale, it’s definitely worth checking out the following retailers to see if you can score any good deals. In years past, during the APS, these retailers drop their sale items at either midnight or 3 am EST.
If you ask me, the Lilly Pulitzer Dressed for Summer Sale isn’t going to replace the APS, but rather it may be another opportunity for Lilly to dress in bright colors, head to toe. What do you think? Will this replace the APS, or do you think this will be their third sale of the year?
