lilly pulitzer after party sale dates september 2019

Do you know the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale dates? I’ve been getting this question A LOT over the last few weeks and I am SO excited that I can finally answer! The sale starts this Monday, September 9th at 8am EST and ends on Wednesday, September 11th. So set your alarms and get ready!

Monday September 9 – Wednesday September 11
sale begins 8AM ET & ends 11:59PM ET

Get ready to freak out! This year’s After Party Sale will run similarly to previous sales, however there will be two drops of additional product on Tuesday, September 10th and one drop of additional products on Wednesday, September 11th. This is good news especially if you aren’t able to shop the sale right at 8AM on Monday. It also means Lilly Pulitzer likely has a TON of items they plan on including in the After Party Sale.

For those of you who have been following me for a while the rest of this post won’t be news to you, but for those of you who have never shopped the sale before, here’s what you need to know.

Lilly Pulitzer has two blowout sales a year, the first falls in January and the second happens at the end of summer/early fall. The After Party sale is the only time Lilly product ever gets marked down; there isn’t even a sale section on!

At every After Party Sale you’ll likely see pieces from all the recent collections of the past year. You should expect to see dresses, tops, bottoms, and accessories marked down over 50% off.

Online shoppers who hit the sale as soon as it starts will be placed in a virtual line before being granted access. Personally the wait times vary, I’ve waited anywhere from 5 minutes to about an hour. It can be frustrating, but let me tell you, it is worth the wait and you’re wallet will thank you!

I’ve included some more shopping tips and After Party Sale practices below.

Set up a account. 

You’ll need an account to shop the sale and you can get a head start with the checkout process by making sure your shipping and payment information is up-to-date.

Use multiple devices. 

Just incase the site crashes have your phone or iPad ready to go.

Set your alarm & clear your morning schedule.

Get your reminders ready so that you’re good to go at 8AM ET on Monday morning. You don’t want to miss out on any items.

Know your sizing.

At first I was a little worried because I didn’t know my Lilly sizing, but I would say it runs a bit big on me. I’m normally an XS in tops and a size 2 in bottoms/dresses, but when I order Lilly I always go with a 0 or XS/XXS. If you’re unsure you can review the size chart.

Shop smart and fast. 

EVERYTHING is fair game until you’ve finished checkout. Even if it’s in your cart, it doesn’t mean it won’t sell out.

Don’t buy just to buy. 

Think about what your closet is lacking or if you need to replace something. Keep in mind that everything is Final Sale so returns are not an option.

Set a budget. 

I know it’s hard not to go crazy when there’s a sale going on, but you still have to pay for all that great stuff you buy!

Understand the ordering process. 

Keep in mind that Lilly only has this sale twice a year and there are a TON of Lilly lovers out there. Everyone receives free standard shipping when they place their After Party Sale order, so be prepared to wait two weeks or more for your goodies to arrive.
