Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale Tips & Tricks
Be Prepared for a Virtual Queue
To prevent the website from crashing, Lilly creates a virtual queue at the start of the sale. I recommend getting on the Lilly site right at 8:00am EST to get in the queue. Be patient, and don’t refresh your browser. Then when it’s your turn, a message will automatically appear and you will be redirected to the homepage.
Prioritize Your Most-Wanted Items The First-Go Round
It’s important to note that adding an item to your cart does NOT reserve it for you. Supplies are limited, so there’s always a chance an item in your shopping bag could be sold out by the time you go to checkout. To prevent this from happening, I recommend shopping with a mission your first visit to the sale. Shipping is free on orders $25 and up, so you can always go back in the sale later in the day for more leisurely browsing.
Here’s what I mean by shopping with a mission: decide ahead of time what is at the top of your wish list. Is it a specific print, dresses, pajamas, Luxletic, etc.? Lilly organizes the sale items by categories. Its categories are usually dresses, tops, bottoms, swim, accessories, and kids. If you’re looking for a particular print, or a specific style, you can type that in the search bar. I personally prefer to check out when I have things in my cart that I really want, as opposed to continuing to look through all the items to see what I else I might want.
All Sales Are Final
Keep in mind that all sales are final during the January 2023 Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale. Because of this, it’s safest to stick to styles that you already own or have tried on. However, discounts during the sale are up to 70% off. Therefore, it can definitely be worth taking the risk and getting something you’ve never tried on before. I’ve done this in the past, and it’s been totally fine. You can also read online reviews, but this will also take up time and you might lose items in your cart as a result! The good news is that if you order something from the sale and it doesn’t fit, you can easily sell it in one of the Lilly Buy/Sell/Trade groups on Facebook or on Poshmark/Mercari. It’s ultimately up to you to weigh the pros and cons of buying something where you aren’t sure about sizing.
What Should I Get During the Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale?
The Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale is a great chance to get items you like but wouldn’t want to pay full price for or to get additional favorites at a reduced price. For instance, I like to get additional styles in favorite prints, and additional prints in favorite styles. Luxletic skorts and pajamas have been some of my go-to’s in recent Lilly online sales. I also like to check out the accessories section to look at items that were previously only available as a gift with purchase.
This patchwork skort is one of my favorite items I’ve ever purchased during a Lilly online sale. And it’s actually one thing I bought without trying on previously! For more of my all-time favorite Lilly sale purchases, check out this post.
