It’s that crazy day of year again: the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale.
If you love Lilly, this is a day to take advantage of because prices are slashed to upwards of 60% off – a rarity for the brand. However, low prices = big crowds. Once again the virtual line was in use, and while it’s mildly annoying, it does keep the website from crashing so I guess it’s okay. I still ended up getting everything I wanted.
I went a little crazy and ended up getting six dresses. I was on the hunt this time around for some basics that I could wear all throughout fall and winter and a graduation dress. That last part I can’t even believe I wrote. I’m already a senior in college – where the heck did time go?
I’m so in love with everything I got! Here’s the haul:
Marlowe Dress in Bay Blue Coconut Stripe // I tried on a dress nearly identical to this from the new arrivals last week while I was on vacation in Orlando. I *almost* paid $98 for it, but I’m so glad I didn’t, because I snagged it for under $40. If you shop through 6pm, make sure you use the coupon code ‘bestpicks’ for 10% off! I nearly missed it. 6pm has free shipping too! I can’t wait to wear this with boots and vests during the fall.
Marina Dress in True Navy // Isn’t this the perfect fall staple dress? I can see this with riding boots, tights and a cardigan perfectly. I love how simple it is. I have so many printed Lilly dresses that I wanted a few more understated ones this time around. And how gorgeous is that detailing around the neckline? So pretty. I got this for under $40!
Marlowe Dress in Koala of the Wild // Another Marlowe dress. These are honestly some of my favorites that Lilly does because they’re casual yet can be dressed up. And so comfortable! I grabbed this one for $39. I just adored the pattern.
Cove Dress in Love Birds // I was OBSESSED with this pattern when it came out. I think it might be my all-time favorite that Lilly has done. The fit-and-flare shape seemed perfect for a go-to dress that can be worn for presentations or parties. Love! I got it for $59.
Aralyn Shift in Bay Blue Shell Eyelet // Okay and then I had two splurges. This dress has been in the back of my mind since I saw it come out at the beginning of summer, but there was no way I was about to spend $300 on it. I knew I’d be able to grab it during the sale, and I did so for only $74. This is going to be perfect for beach vacations, but I can also probably get away with wearing it to class with a denim jacket and some sandals.
Sienna Dress in Resort White Sea Life Embroidery // And this is the dress I picked out for my graduation. I have a little tradition where I begin and end each semester by wearing Lilly because it’s my favorite and makes me feel the most confident in myself. Purchasing a Lilly graduation dress wasn’t even a question, but I like how this is so understated and simple. I didn’t wear a solid white dress for my high school graduation, so I thought I’d go more traditional here. I love love love the gold neckline, and the embroidery at the hem of the dress is just a bonus. I can’t wait to get this in the mail!
I hope you all had a successful Lilly sale! Let me know what you got 🙂
