Wow! It has been a really crazy week! Lots of testing, computer problems, and late nights were involved, and finally it is the weekend!
So I have a little update ok my behalf. I am excited to announce that I am going to be heading to the Caribbean this Febuary!
Wow! Almost Wednesday! And there is three more days left until the weekend. At this point if you are like me, you no longer have any outfit ideas. Well, I want to change that! I am giving you three super cute outfit Ideas to satisfy your fashion style! It is simple, just read below✌🏼️💗!
Today is the big day! It is the Lilly Pulitzer APS( after party sale) yay! Dispite a rough morning, this was a great way to kick of the week. Below I stated the process to me getting into the sale(with the virtual line).
At 7:30 I got in my computer to the Lilly site where the sale was to take place. At 7:58 I started to refresh my internet page at the speed of light; no joke(lol). At 8:00 I was placed into a virtual line as number 1755. Below is what it looked like:
After 13 minutes of waiting, I was 24 minutes away from glory and a good Monday of course😉😉. This was a plus because it said it was to take more than 1 hour to get in and now 13 minutes later I am about 20 minutes away! How great! Go Lilly. Below I tracked my progress through the vertual line.
Life is like a party, so dress like it! -Lilly Pulitzer
One of the goals I set for myself this year was to pre-prepare my outfits for the week! This means putting my outfits togther over the weekend and looking super chic and stylish during the week! As I am already aways in a rush in the morning, this was a great compromise to saving a little extra time!
It is simple too! And I am super excited to show you how to save some time on that crazy morning, *cough* *cough* Monday. With only a few short steps you will be on your way to success!😉😉
Step 1: Check your Weather
Knowing what your upcoming weather for the week is helps you plan day by day what you should wear. That way you also feel comfortable in your cloths. If your like me, checking your weather means going no further than the weather app on your phone.
Step 2: Look at your schedule
Is there a special day event or meeting that you want to wear some thing on? Make not of that! Check your calendar for any extra details.
Step 3: Veiw your Options
What would make a good fit for Monday? What about Tuesday? Wednesday...ect.? Put together everything from accessories to your shirt to yes... Your underwear(lol). Maybe not that extreme, but still, it's one step closer to more free time!
Below is a recent post on my Instagram page, where I featured an outfit I planned Saturday night for Monday! How great!
So far this method has been working great for me and saving me a lot of time! This can help result in a more happy Monday!
Try it for yourself, you will not regret it☺️💗!
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Most would think that would be a holiday, but in this case it is THE BEST sale event of the year!
Okay, so as you may know, Lilly Pulitzer does not go on sale. But in this case, three times a year it does. Those three times are the After Party Sale(summer), After Party Sale(winter), and of course the warehouse sale. Great News! The After Party Sale(APS) winter is this Monday January 4th 2016!
The Lilly Pulitzer APS is one that a lot of people get worked up over. Though, I will be the first to tell you; its just a sale. Keep calm, and shop on.
We all are awaiting that moment when Lilly Pulitzer announces there amazing Sale details! The Winter After Party Sale is one of my favorite Lilly Events of the year and lets just say I am a pro *wink* *wink*
I have participated in over six Lilly Pulitzer Sales (After Party Sale, Warehouse Sale, ect.) so I would say I am a Lilly Loving Expert! There is always a set of tricks and tips I use to find a great deal! They are listed below:
1. Stay Calm! It is just clothing! No reason to cause stress over a material!
2. Check out more than once! Items can be stolen from your bag while shopping! It is free shipping so use it!
3. Look on other sites (Retail Sellers, Via Shops, Online Store, ect.)
4. Be patient! There are thousands of others trying to shop the Sale the same time as you! Lilly Pulitzer has a great brand and try's their best to keep everything organized and neat!
5. Don't Over Shop! Think through all your purchases! No reason to over buy! Think about how you will use the item in the future.
Pssstt... just a little hint, new items arrive on the site every hour. So don't hesitate to check back often.

Note: FedEx SmartPost is required for all of these address types and will automatically revert to this at the time of shipment and will result in additional days for delivery. (P.O. Box addresses typically take 7-10 days. Puerto Rico and Military addresses can take 15-25+ days for delivery)
I see a charge on my card, but my order is still processing. What's going on?
If your order has not yet shipped, you're seeing a pre-authorization hold. We won't actually charge your card until your order has left our warehouse. This pre-authorization hold acts as a placeholder to ensure there are adequate funds in your account before your items are sent out.
I just placed an order, but I want to change a size or color. How can I do that?
Changes or amendments cannot be made to orders that have already been placed, so double-check your order thoroughly before you confirm your purchase to avoid any issues.
I had an item in my tote, but it disappeared! What happened?
Just because an item is in your tote does not mean it is reserved. You must completely check-out and pay before the product is unavailable to other shoppers. Due to high volumes of orders, inventory availability is not guaranteed. You can easily check your order status by clicking "Order Status" at the bottom of our website. Enter your order number and your billing zip code. Click here to check your order status now.

Can I re-route my order to a different address after it has shipped?
We may be able to change your address after your order has been placed. Please contact Customer Service at 1-888-725-4559 to see if this option is available. Please note re-routing your package will delay the expected delivery date and there is a $12.50 re-routing fee, so please have your credit card and billing information available when you call.

Is it worth calling out sick for the After Party Sale?
100% YES. This is a preventative measure - as if you miss out on the dress you have been eyeing up for months, you will most likely not be able to get out of bed. Save yourself the sorrow.
Is the After Party really the best party of the year?
Well, we party all year long - with hot prints, cool styles and a little glitz. The After Party is the end all be all - everyone must come and see - event of the year. Don't miss it. You'll regret it. Shop early + often.
Should I employ my husband/boyfriend/neighbor/bestie/child/mother to also shop for me during the sale?
If you have the right social circle, yes. Divide and conquer. Be aware of best friends and daughters who share your love of Lilly (and your size) - they can be sneaky - that said, with the right team on your side, you should be able to snap up all of your Lilly loves.
It's January, why should I buy Lilly stuff now?
Haven't you heard? We have a sunny state of mind - no matter the weather, you ALWAYS need more Lilly. Buy now, wear later. Buy now, wear now. Whatever your style, your new Lilly Loves are sure to warm your heart and brighten yoru day regardless of the current season. TRUST US.
Can I shop in a Lilly Pulitzer store for sale merchandise too?
Yes, our Lilly Pulitzer corporate retail stores are also participating in the After Party Sale. If you have your eye on a specific item, call ahead. All items online will not be in all retail stores.
How should I choose my size?
Fill out a TrueFit profile to get a suggested size in any given style. You should also use your best judgement and previous experience with the brand and product to make your decision, as these size guides are based on industry averages and sizing may vary based on personal preference.
Thanks for stopping by Blonde in Pink! This is a spot for me to share everything from fashion to travel. I am currently based out of Philly but I am always visiting new places. If I had two words to describe my fashion it would be "Boho Chic". I started this blog in 2015 with inspiration to share my fashion ideas with friends and family, and soon Blonde in Pink began.
