Lilly Pulitzer’s After Party Sale Starts Today!! Sizing/Fit Help + A Giveaway!

If you’ve been reading for the past few days, it’s absolutely no secret anymore that the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale starts at 8am!  I’m wearing this Elsa Top and it’s on sale!  The girls are wearing these dresses.
If you hopped over to SSP before the sale starts this morning, feel free to check back here and 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 (takes 6o seconds and no measurements are necessary).  Love this feature!  As you’re shopping the sale, look near the sizes available and it’ll show you what size will fit you best (there’s an example of what it looks like on yesterday’s post).
As the sale goes live, I’ll be updating my post throughout the day with my favorites from the sale!
Here are my favorites I’ve loved wearing this year.  Crossing my fingers for you that they’ll be included in the sale!
 Crossbody (on sale)
 Crossbody (also available in more colors here) // Sandals
First and foremost, the Essie Dress.  Get it.  Hands down my favorite toss-on dress this year.  I clearly am obsessed.  This one runs a tad bit small.  I didn’t want mine too fitted, so I went up to a medium on this dress.
Essie tops are just as awesome!  I wear a medium in these tops!
Clutch (on sale!) // Wedges (on sale here, true to size)
Talk about the perfect colorful flowy dress.  Love the fabric of this Ellie Tunic Dress.  It’s not see-through at all.  It fits true to size.  I’m wearing a small.
This Monterey Dress is super comfortable and versatile and it’s only $39 during the sale!  I was able to wear it both as a cover-up and as a dress this summer.  It runs big, but I still stuck with a small because I liked the length better. // Crossbody (on sale)

 I love this Rachelle Dress so much.  I actually just wore it again this past Saturday night.  I’m hoping to snag it in the navy during the sale.  True to size. I’m wearing a small.  My friend’s dress is also on sale.
Sandals (true to size)
Another winning dress is this Ali Dress.  It’s a very soft cotton, seriously feels like I’m wearing pajamas.  Plan on wearing this one on into the Fall/Winter, since it has sleeves.  Runs small, I’m wearing a medium.

 Got this Colie Flamingo Tee back in March before our Key West trip.  I wear it during the day, but also as pajamas at night.  I wanted this to be slouchier, so I went up a size, to a medium.  I very easily could’ve done a small too.
Of Lilly’s shorts, the Walsh Short has been my favorite style lately.  These run small, I went up a size on them.

Another go-to dress this year has been the Melle Dress. It’s only $34 during the sale!  Runs true to size, but I still went up to a medium because I wanted a little more room.

Very similar to the Jupiter Cover-Up, this Captiva Tunic is part of the sale too.  Also on sale here. Wearing a medium.  Sunnies // Sandals (on sale, I’m an 8.5 and wear a 9 in these)

This Jupiter Island Cover-up has clearly been a favorite again 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.

Just ordered this coral one!

Elsa Tops have been a longtime favorite of mine.  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.
Effie’s wearing this one.
Wheeler’s wearing this one.
The girls are wearing these dresses.
 Little Lilly Shifts are clearly my favorite dresses for the girls!  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 forever!  My Out to Sea Elsa top is on sale and so is Wheeler’s dress.
And if Girls’ Swimsuits are available during the sale, you better believe I’m stocking up.  Not for now, but for next summer!

I just ordered this one for the girls.

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.

FYI
, if you are planning on ordering items as gifts or saving them for next summer, make sure you still open the package and make sure your items are all accounted for, you were sent the correct size, and your items aren’t defective.
GIVEAWAY TIME!

Don’t forget that Nordstrom offers price adjustments, so be sure and check out their Lilly section here, especially if your favorite item from the sale sold out quickly.  It may still be available at Nordstrom.  You can also check 6pm and Zappos for Lilly, as they sometimes mark down their Lilly at the same time as this sale.
If you have a fit question on a specific item, please email me at sweetsouthernprep at gmail.  I’ll try and help you with sizing as best as I can, and attempt to get back to you promptly!
Whatever happens during the Lilly After Party Sale, I wish you the best and hope you have lots of luck scoring your Lilly favorites!  And keep in mind, for the first time ever, Lilly will be adding new sale items tomorrow!

As an added perk today only, all Georgica Jellies have been marked down to only $29.99.  Check out more colors here.  These are awesome for the pool!  For sizing, I’m an 8.5 and wear an 8 in these.

UPDATE #1: I hope everyone was able to get on this morning!  I’m most excited that I snagged this dress in navy and this one too!

  4. Bought an Essie and a Reagan at 5:45am before they closed the site! The early bird catches the worm. FYI all the Elsas I saw on sale were solid and there wasn't a lot of girls (no shifts-just shorts) or accessories like jewelry. Wonder if they're saving that for tomorrow?

    1. There are printed Elsas, girls, and accessories! Just added more to my haul! Must have been because I had logged in so early while they were still getting the site ready! ?

  5. I bought a long maxi dress that I have been eyeing for quite some time! I have had a love affair with Lilly for years. (My youngest is even named Lilly!!)

  6. I always love finding a new Murfee…but we just brought home our first baby, and she is already costing an arm and a leg. Might have to wait til the January sale this year for some Lilly!

  16. I am hoping to finally buy my first Elsa top! I've wanted one forever and have been admiring them on you in your posts. For that sale price, I can't pass it up any longer! I just hope there are still some left when I get through the virtual line! 🙂

  17. Ashley, thank you for this post! 6pm had great pieces but incredibly limited sizing – I lucked out on a white cardigan. I also managed to scoop 3 shift dresses for my daughter Wheeler (great name btw) from the sale. Yay!

  18. I bought two Essies, a pair of buttercups, and three sweaters, despite having just made a trip to my LP signature store a few weeks ago 😉 I appreciate seeing pics of your LP pieces, since I don't get to my signature store very often and tend to miss things. Thanks, Ashley!

  19. Between Lilly Pulitzer and 6PM, I bought two Elsas (one solid, one print), a popover, a UPF dress, a Marlowe dress, a pair of buttercup shorts, a pair of Callahan's, and an assortment of tops! Yay! So exciting!

  20. I only had one item fly out of my cart! Managed to snag two Elsas, a Martha cardigan and an Essie dress. Still hoping for an Enna top. Will check back tomorrow morning. I thought the virtual line moved quickly and didn't have any technical glitches. Well done, LP!

  21. Thankfully working at our local store helped with me burning a hole in my pocket this am, but was able to snag a beautiful cashmere wrap cardigan I've had my eye on!!!

  22. The rachelle dress, a couple of Elsa tops and a couple of pairs of buttercups but at the moment I'm 7068 in line with a virtual wait time of over an hour! (Why did school have to start this week-lol!) Fingers crossed!

  23. Did anyone else have checkout issues? I made it to the checkout page and it wouldn't confirm the info before going on to the final step. Sadly I lost my first choice Elsa top in the process. But I did get an Essie, Marlowe striped dress and Little Lilly for my daughter, so that's a great bright side!

  24. Ahhh, my first APS and yes worth the wait!!! Picked up an Essie top and Buttercup shorts, cannot wait to wear!! Your blog is fab and your family is beyond beautiful!! Thanks for all the great tips!
    Peace and love

  25. I'm still waiting to get in, but I checked out the website last night like you suggested and made a list of things I would love to order if they are on sale! Not sure they will be included in the sale, but the things on my list are the Colby Sleeved Tunic Dress, the Blaire v neck dress, the Ali v neck tshirt dress, the Amelia Island embroidered tunic, and the Camilla boat neck sweater. It says my wait is over an hour long, but I'm keeping my browser open! Thanks for all your suggestions!

  26. So excited to get good finds! I got the girls a sister set for next year and got myself the essie dress and top, an elsa top, and another long sleeve dress. Waiting to get back in for more 😉 Thanks for the chance to win these goodies!

  27. I lucked out and got in by 8:05, snagged the Mallory Maxi Dress for a charity event I have later in the year and a couple shifts for work.

  28. I LOVE this sale! I was able to snag a few things I'd been eyeing over the spring/summer. One was the Colie Nice Stems t shirt and am the navy Bryn cashmere cardigan. And now, I have a daughter, actually named Lily (lol), I was able to snag two Lacey combo dresses and a mini Brewster t shirt dress. Was hoping to get her a swimsuit, but they sold out so fast! So excited I was able to purchase a few things though! Great way to start a Monday! Have a great week!

  29. I too have been wanting an Elsa top. I am still in line waiting to get into the site. I hope that there are some items still available. I have been to other sites that have Lilly After Party sale on and well I am in line there as well. One place I was able to get on but all the items I wanted had sizes that I would not be able to use.

  30. Thanks for all your help! Got a cashmere wrap for winter, a navy romper, and a Cathy shift dress on the website but ended up getting 2 more shift dresses on 6pm.com. Thanks for the heads up on the promo code, ended up being cheaper and of course much less hassle!

  31. So excited that I got the Ellie tunic dress, the Rochelle dress in navy, and the Colie pineapple tee! Thanks so much for all your helpful tips and clothing picks!

  32. Got the Celia fit and flare dress but I'm kicking myself when I saw how much better the clothes looked on you than the model. Back in line again!

  33. I got several dresses, sweaters and tops. No Elsas this time – I was focused on steamy hot weather cute clothes so silk isn't a good option but a sweater is handy for excessive air conditioning. I love this sale!

  34. I have a long wish list – Essie dress and top, Monterey dress, and Melle dress. Almost to the front of the virtual line. We'll see what a I get 🙂

  35. So much fun shopping this morning! I got a Lovers Coral popover that will be great when it gets cooler, along with an Elsa, Caftan Top, and Cosmos Top… guess I was on a roll with all of the tops! That Ellie Dress of yours was in my cart but ended up getting the boot when I had too many other things in there!

  36. Hi Ashley!
    Thanks so much for all your awesome recommendations and info! I was able to snag two Elsa shirts, two dresses, 4 pairs of shorts and 2 phone cases! So excited. Your blog is my favorite 🙂

  37. I ordered an Elsa in Tusk in Sun and some Callahans in Kir Royale. I was a little bummed I didn't see the navy Essie dress, but maybe I missed it! Really wanted it, too!

  38. I order an oh shello scarf for a christmas gift, cell phone case, a mila dress, and a t shirt. So much more I want, but my wallet wouldn't be happy.

  39. Today was my first time participating in the Lilly After Party Sale & so excited to own something Lilly (besides a phone case)! I purchased:
    Ali v-neck t-shirt dress
    Palmetto v-neck t-shirt dress
    Windward dress
    Marina 3/4 sleeve t-shirt dress
    Eden a-line shift dress
    Riley infinity loop scarf-so a peeling
    iPhone 6 cover-besame mucho

  42. I had so much fun shopping the sale today! I picked up my "holy grail" Regan dress & Dusk dress as well as the same Harper Cardi you did! I also grabbed some cotton dress that will be perfect for the end of summer! Very excited by the selection today! 🙂

  43. I have been shopping all morning. I have a little girl on the way (named Lilly) so I bought 4 dresses for her and matching ones for me!!! Now I'm shopping for buttercup shorts and some more Elsa tops!!

  44. Today was my biggest score—a cosmetic case, three elsas, essie dress, essie top, graves shift, buttercup shorts,run around shorts, and a couple other dresses that I can't remember the names of! Missed the monteray unfortunately 🙁

  45. I'm a newbie to the Lilly sale and I almost NEVER buy anything that I can't return. So, I took it easy and settled for a blue Magnolia top, a pair of Callahan shorts and the Rosa maxi dress!! I figure I won't have any problems selling if they don't fit. 😉

  46. I bought Elsa and a shift for my daughter in Tusks in Love, and I finally got my hands on the swing dress! Hope it's here before Labor Day! Lol.

  47. Snagged the Natashia for myself and some adorable Little Lilly dresses for my daughter. And a pair of Skippers because I wear them ALL the time!

  48. I got five mini Shifts for my little early this morning on 6pm and just picked up a couple Amelia Island tunics on the Lilly website!

  49. I love your APS posts!

    I just placed my order and snagged: Madeira Fitted Dress in So a Peeling; Neveah One Shoulder Top in Lovers Coral; Luxletic Swing Tank Top; and an Elsa in Peel and Eat!

  51. I love the sleeveless Elsa tops and picked up two this morning ! Also a swing tank top – love how they breathing our hot South Carolina summer days !

  52. Bought the Ellie tunic, Elsa top, romper and a cashmere cardigan. I had Nordstrom price match the Sophie dress from 6pm sites. Ended up being cheaper than the Lilly sale and I got my nordstroms points. Thanks for all the scoop. Such a fun day!

  53. I scored an Essie Dress, a Monterey Tank Dress, and the Millie Halter top after waiting nearly two hours to be let into the sale. I'm glad I finally got in and I can't wait for my goodies to arrive!

  54. Hi! I scored some Callahans, a tank top and the notebook set. Got in and out quick the first go round and then it was FOREVER getting in again 🙁 ~so much more I want, but thankful for the pieces that I did secure. THANK YOU for all your great tips~very much appreciated! 🙂

  55. Success!!! I had sweaty palms…felt like I was taking a standardized test!! What if I picked wrong??? I grabbed an Essie dress, Essie tank, Arya tank and a Palmetto T-Shirt dress. So excited……thanks for all your tips!
    May go back for an Elsa top………after 5 years of paying for preschool and with kindergarten on the horizon, I deserve a 'back to school' gift too!

Larina shift in coral, Celia in La Playa, Adalina in white, another pair of Georgia May's, an Essie, the Elsa in Too Much Bubbly (love that print!) and cosmetic bag set.

I also got the Elsa Top in Oh La La after seeing your recommendation of how wonderful it is.
