I love the bright fun colors and patterns that are synonymous with the Lilly Pulitzer brand. While the items can be a bit pricey, there are typically two times each year that hundreds of their pieces go on sale – some up to 70% off! This sale was previously known as the After Party Sale, but has been renamed the Sunshine Sale in recent years. During these sales, I have been able to grow my Lilly collection with some of my favorite pieces at great prices. The best pieces sell out quickly so read my tips below for a better chance of getting your favorites during the Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale!
When is the Next Sunshine Sale?
September 9-10, 2023 – Early Access in-stores for Club Lilly Members
September 12-14, 2023 8:00 AM ET – Online
Club Lilly members will also have two-hour Early Access to limited releases of new-to-sale styles online on September 13, 2023, and September 14, 2023 from 11:00 AM to 12:59 PM ET.
How to Shop the Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale
Set up an account on the Lilly Pulitzer website ahead of time and save your payment information so you don’t waste any time doing this at checkout.
There will be a virtual queue for you to join in order to shop the sale. I try to have the site pulled up at least 10 minutes prior to the opening and then refresh right before the start time. If you have multiple devices available to use, it’s helpful to have options to see which one gets you in first. Login to the app on your phone or tablet ahead of time so you’re ready to go!
Once you are in the virtual queue, DON’T refresh or you’ll lose your place.
If there is something you REALLY want, check out right away. Simply having items in your cart does not guarantee that they will still be there when you go to checkout.
Filter the items by your sizes so that you are only seeing items that will fit.
Remember, all sales are final so you won’t be able to return anything from the sale.
Due to the high volume of orders, sometimes it can take up to 6 weeks to receive your items. I will say, the items I ordered during the last sale (September 2022) were shipped within a few days – I was shocked. Also note, items may come in multiple shipments even if you only placed a single order.
What Items Will Be On Sale
While we don’t know exactly what items will be on sale ahead of time, there are several items I always buy. I typically stock up on basics like the Etta top, Essie tank, Elsa silk top, popovers, and Buttercup shorts. There are usually several dress styles on sale too.
Other Sale Tips
Try on several different Lilly Pulitzer items in a store so you know your sizing ahead of time, especially if shopping for Lilly is new to you. Certain styles require sizing up or down depending on the fit. If you can’t make it to a store ahead of time, you can view the sizing guide online.
They typically add new sale items each day, so be sure to check back!
Throughout the year, if there are Lilly items you love but don’t buy, you can save them to their favorites list under your account. Check your list when the sale starts and add anything on sale to your cart right away.
Good luck shopping, I hope you get something special to add to your collection!
