How cute is my sweet Wheels?? She was 3 here. When I was perusing old photos to share my latest Lilly faves, I happened across this pic. I can still remember when I took it. I told her to smile and she started jumping up and down and thought she was the funniest thing. Jumping and giggling. I was laughing too. Her giddiness in that Little Lilly. I mean. And then I look at her today, leaving for first grade this morning…ah, don’t get me started!
If you’ve been reading for the past few days, it’s absolutely no secret that the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale
starts at 8am! The girls are off on their first day of school this morning. Luckily, I’ll be able to make it back home before the sale starts. The boys will just have to have some play time with their trucks, trains and books while I shop for a bit. Then again, with this new virtual line thing, I may be waiting in line for a little while so I may have more time to read them books, while I wait. Interested to see how this will work.
If you hopped over to SSP before the sale starts this morning, feel free to check back here
for last-minute tips before the sale starts. You can also check out my Lilly favorites from this year below and enter my giveaway. Also, you can sign up for TrueFit
too. Love this feature! I realize this takes you to Nordstrom, but it will convert to Lilly too. As you’re shopping the sale, look near the sizes available and it’ll show you what size will fit you best.
As the sale goes live, I’ll be updating my post throughout the day with my favorites from the sale!
This Jupiter Island Cover-up
has clearly been a favorite this summer! Hoping that it will be available during the sale in other prints. For fit, I’m a 6 and wear a Medium in it.
Another style that I have my fingers crossed will be available during the sale is this Monterey Dress
. I practically lived in it this summer. Super soft fabric and a great length. I have it in a Medium, but could have probably done a Small too. I’m always so wary of going down a size and then washing it and it becoming too tight, so I do like the medium fit better.
Like I said, these are all clearly my ultimate favorites and I seriously hope that any of them are on sale in other prints. I would love this Daphne Dress
in another print too!
This is the BEST tank, hands down! Enough that I went back and ordered another in the solid navy too. If this Gigi Tank
is part of the sale, snag one! I’m wearing a medium for a roomier fit. If you want it more fitted, order your true size.
This Sarasota Pintuck Tunic
was one of my first Lilly purchases of the year. I love it, but definitely recommend ordering a size down. Runs really big.
This Essie Top sold out very quickly earlier this season. I highly doubt it will be a part of the sale, but if it is, definitely get it. Just like the Gigi, it’s soft and so easy to throw on. Fit is true to size. I wear a small. Also pictured, these studs
and these sandals
I realize this is a shot in the dark because when it was available a few years ago, it was extremely popular and sold out quickly. But I promised to share my favorite Lilly I’ve worn this year and this Shannen Dress in Bling My Chimes is no exception. I still absolutely love this dress and wore it to a disco fundraiser back in February. I wish Lilly would bring back this fit and style. For fun, I posted about this dress when it came out, over three years ago here
I wore this Rosie Dress
on Easter. The fit is true to size. I’m wearing a 6.
FAVORITE ELSA TOPS THIS YEAR…
have been a longtime favorite of mine. This print is called First Impressions
. I love how they’re super easy to throw on with just about anything and they pull a look together. For fit, I wear a Small in them. These silky, slightly billowy tops are always the first to go during the sale, so make sure and order your favorite prints quickly.
LITTLE LILLY SHIFTS
I was perusing more recent pics of the girls in their Little Lilly Shifts
this year, but had to share these few above from Disney. We took them two Februarys ago and I honestly think they wore a Lilly Shift every single day for the entire week. The easiest and comfiest thing to throw on, and you know all the bright colors are everything! Obviously, I’ll be stocking up for the girls during the sale. I’ve said it before, but these make great gifts too! Little Lilly Shifts
And if Girls’ Swimsuits
are available during the sale, you better believe I’m stocking up. Not for now, but for next summer! The navy one Effie is wearing and Wheeler’s above, I actually purchased two summers ago during their sale and they’re still able to wear it this season!
A few other things to note, don’t forget to check the Accessories Section
! Usually there are some fun novelty Lilly items, but most of them are low stock so they sell out pretty quickly.
