Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale

As many of you know, the brand holds a very near and dear space in my heart. They continue to be a company who I sincerely adore. Behind-the-scenes, the brand clearly cares about its customers and it shows.

A few years ago, I had the chance to work with their team for an incredible trip on Nantucket. Last summer, Bob and I even revisited the Lilly Pulitzer Cottage at White Elephant Nantucket. Simply put, Lilly Pulitzer is way more than about just fashion or a lifestyle. They truly care about their customers and brand loyalists.

From clothing to lifestyle, Lilly Pulitzer is a brand that cares about women looking good as much as doing good for others. Over the years, they continue to donate to so many non-profits. I love who they are, and what they represent. Plus, the sale offers a great chance for shoppers to get their hands on styles at a more attainable price point. Furthermore, I love stocking up on holiday gifts early during the sale – especially accessories like earrings, handbags, and home items.

How does the Virtual Line Work?

If you’ve shopped Lilly Pulitzer sales in the past, they’ll have a similar “virtual line” system. Basically, once you click the site, it’ll give you a number and an approximate wait time. Ultimately, the wait time is much quicker than the number you give you. Trust! 🙂 One tip is to stop by their website around 7:15 a.m. EST on Monday. From there, refresh your tab as soon as it’s 8:00 a.m. EST. This will ensure you’re well positioned to shop more quickly than others.

Lilly Pulitzer Size Chart

Speaking of, please review the Lilly Pulitzer Size Chart to make sure that items are the correct size. More often than not, I find Lilly styles to fit true to size unless they are more body-con styles in the case that I’d recommend sizing up. However, I’d strongly recommend checking fit reviews and the size chart to make sure that it’s the right option for you.

Is there Free Shipping?

Yes, any Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale orders over $25 ship for free via FedEx Ground. However, with such a large volume of orders, shipping can be delayed and take a couple weeks. Moreover, items may arrive at different times with different deliveries.

Will They Replenish Items?

Sadly no – they will not replenish styles for the Sunshine Sale. It’s a three-day event, so the pieces will be available but not restocked. Furthermore, they do often add new styles throughout the sale.

Best Tips to Shop the Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale

CREATE AN ACCOUNT – Log onto the website and create your account in advance. Add your information early for quick, seamless check-out.

HAVE A BUDGET IN MIND – While sales are fun, remember that you don’t NEED anything or everything! If you have a few items that you’ve been eyeing for awhile, the sale is a great time to get the items! Simply have a budget set, and stick to it!

GET MULTIPLE DEVICES READY – You never know when your Wi-Fi will go out or if you have technical problems. Have an iPad, phone, laptop and/or desktop computer ready to go, and ready to shop! This step is also helpful since there’s a virtual waiting line. You don’t want to lose your place!

SET YOUR ALARM – I find that setting an alarm for the sale is extremely helpful! Set one on your phone about 10 minutes prior to the launch.

CATEGORY SELECTION – To help shop more quickly, utilize the web tools to sort by category – think dresses, tops, skirts, bags, jewelry, and beyond. My personal first stop? Dresses, of course!

    Hi Jenn! Your style, photography and energy are so much fun!!! Thank you for sharing all the ways to style Lilly and info about the sale. Turns out, I didn’t miss it after all! Your shoe choices really have my heart. Any way you could share where you found these green floral sandals as well as the silver + gold Mary Janes on your Dudley Stephens post? I looked all over your blog and IG and LTK but couldn’t find. Have fun with the Lilly sale!

      Thanks so much for your sweet comment – I truly appreciate it! The green floral sandals are from the Nicholas Kirkwood x Peter Pilotto spring 2012 collection – oldies but goodies 🙂 The silver Mary Janes are Tory Burch from a couple years ago. Hope you have a lovely week ahead!
