The Lilly Pulitzer Endless Summer Sale


Today, August 19, 2013, was an unofficial prep holiday.  It was the start of the Lilly Pulitzer Endless Summer Sale!  Unlike many sites, Lilly Pulitzer doesn’t have a sale section year round. It’s a different type of marketing strategy that possibly makes the bright colored party clothes and accessories even more desirable.  I love to drool over Lilly, but on a college girl I can’t afford much.  And I am not alone, LP fans everywhere were trying to take advantage of the deals… therefore by 8:00 am the site had crashed:

By 11:30 the issues had been resolved, but that felt like a lifetime.  Once the pages loaded it was even more difficult for me to decide what to buy because I had time to over think it.  When Lilly Pulitzer is on an extreme sale, it is comparable to Gap prices not on sale, sometimes more.  It is difficult to spend so impulsively on a sale not so sale occasion.. So to break it down, even when the $375 coat is $89 I couldn’t do it.  And I loved that Lilly Pulitzer Eddison Coat, but now it is 7:00pm and long gone.

Momma promised me a Lilly Pulitzer agenda once I made up my mind about school.  Since I officially went to UB Orientation last week, I was allowed to order it.  This “nauti” little number came in the mail Friday, so it’s not like I’ve been through Lilly withdrawal: I will survive.

Another place to look for your Lilly Pulitzer items is Rue LaLa. I know I’ve bashed them before, but today I found the most adorable LP dress for FIFTY DOLLARS.  If I needed to expand my dress collection from 42 to 43, I would know where to turn.
