Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale Starts Today + Sizing/Fit Details on My Faves

Lilly’s After Party Sale starts at 8am and I’m sooooo excited!  Cannot wait to see what all is marked down this year!  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.

Here are my favorites I’ve loved wearing this past summer.  Crossing my fingers for you that they’ll be included in the sale!

Well, if you haven’t figured it out by now.  My favorite style dress from Lilly lately has been the Jane Shift Dress.  The white sleeveless pic above was actually taken yesterday.  It was that warm here!  The girls are wearing these dresses, currently on major sale!  For a long sleeve version of the Jane, that’s currently on sale, check out this pretty print.

Another favorite I loved wearing during the holidays was this Franci Dress.  The metallic jacquard was so pretty!

 This dress is part of the sale!  It’s called the Jackie and I’ve always loved this style.  Swingy and lightweight!  Paired it with this necklace worn as a bracelet.  For fit, it runs pretty true to size, maybe a tad on the bigger size, but I still went with a small.

Still love this one!  It’s lightweight, cool and breezy.  Wearing a small.

Super cute dress…with pockets!  Wore this necklace with it, carrying this purse.  Wearing a 6.

By far my favorite print this year!  Love these two colors together so much!  The girls are wearing these dresses and I’m wearing this top.  Top is true to size.  Wearing a small.

The fit of this dress is great.  It’s not fitted which I love and the details are perfect!  Plus, who doesn’t love a bright yellow color for summer!

I scored the dress Effie is wearing above during the Lilly Sale this past January!

Loved the yellow so much, I just couldn’t resist the white too!  I know this classic will be on repeat for years and years to come.  Paired it with these sandals and these earrings.  Runs a little big, but still went with a small for both.  Currently on sale in both colors for $69!

One thing’s for sure, I definitely fell for Lilly’s swimsuits this past summer.  As soon as I tried one on, I wanted them all!  It was so hard to choose which print, but this one above I loved.  Paired it with these bottoms.  They’re so good because they have better coverage than most on the rear.  In all my bikinis, I wear a medium on top and on bottom.

We clearly loved this print!  So much that I got it for the whole family.  Yes, even Lanier wore one too.  The Essie Dress has long been one of my fave toss-on dresses.  Super soft and comfy.  For fit, they tend to run pretty true to size.  I have them in both mediums and smalls, depending on how loose or fitted I want them to fit.  So many prints are part of the sale!

Dress // Girls’ Suits // Boys’ Trunks  // Lanier’s Trunks

In case you missed it from a previous post this summer, yes, that’s Joel Berry II.  He was vacationing at Pawley’s while we were there.  Go Heels!

Clearly, another bikini top print and style I loved too!  Wore it so much!

I’ve always been a fan of Lilly’s Luxletic line.  I have a few tanks in this style, but when they came out with the style above, I ordered one as soon as I could.  Love the back detail!  It’s also not as fitted, which I love too!

I mean, they had me at pink…then they had to make this tank a style I loved, along with the cutest twist back.  Love!  For most of my Luxletic pieces, I find that they run on the bigger size, but I like them that way.  The smalls works best for me.

I swear we didn’t color coordinate our outfits, but I guess we just all like the same colors!  Wearing this tank with the prettiest braided detail on the straps.  Wearing a small.  Now on sale for only $34!

I was very excited that I finally found bikini bottoms that had enough coverage on the rear to wear a matching suit with this top.  And my top is now on sale for $34!  The perfect Lilly pink and green pairing!

During the sale, I always score as many Little Lilly Shifts as I can, but they definitely sell out quickly!  The ones the girls are wearing are ones they could still wear from last summer.  I have a matching dress to go with it.  One thing I always recommend as far as sizing for the girls’ shifts is to make sure and size up.  That way they can wear them longer.  I’ve said it before, but these make great gifts too!  As far as swimsuits, I sure wish they’d offer more girls’ swimsuits during the sale.  Have always loved them!

Finally, I leave you with this dress!  It’s part of the sale!  Was $108, now $54!  It’s a great A-line shape and super comfy!  Paired it here with these sunnies that I clearly wear non-stop and these earrings.  Wearing a small.

Also, 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!  Love this necklace, only $24!  My favorite always is the silk Elsa Top.  Toss it on with jeans and you’re good to go!  Many are currently on sale!  They fit true to size.  I wear a small in them.  Oh and be sure and check out the Luxletic section and what’s all on sale!  Because it’s always more fun to work-out in bright colors!


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, that you were sent the correct size, and your items aren’t defective.

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.

Zappos and Amazon have both marked down their Lilly too!

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 now onto the giveaway!  Share your favorite Lilly or what’s on your wishlist during the sale and you’ll be entered in a giveaway.  Please, only one comment per person.  One lucky winner will receive a $200 Lilly Gift Card.  Giveaway ends on Tuesday at midnight and winner will be announced on Wednesday!

UPDATE: Lilly will release even more sale goodies tomorrow!  So be sure and shop the again in the morning for even more Lilly goodness!

Good luck and Happy Shopping!
