Oh, man. I totally forgot that yesterday marked the start of the semi-annual Lilly Pulitzer sale.
Since Lilly doesn’t regularly have a sale section, you have to wait for the real deals to show up just twice a year.
During the last sale I was hoping to score a swimsuit coverup, and I set a reminder (!) for myself to go online when the sale started.
I went to the site at the exact time the sale began and discovered that I was number 31,348 in the virtual queue to enter the sale.
Holy buckets. These society gals are serious about getting their discounted Lilly.
On the happiest note, after 45 minutes of anxious waiting in the queue, I was finally able to shop and managed to score the exact item I wanted for $19, a fraction of the original price.
This time around I totally forgot about the sale (and frankly didn’t need any more vacation wear, but who’s keeping track?), so when I saw a reminder email at 9 PM, I didn’t think I’d find much.
But of course I still had to look.
True to form, it looked like the pickings were getting slim.
However, I was able to find this cool 2017 agenda – something I actually need – for only $9.
If you act fast (the sale ends at 1 P.M. EST today), you can get one of your own. There were a surprising number of agendas in different sizes and styles still available. All of them originally retailed for $30 but are now $9. With free ground shipping on all sale orders, this is a great deal.
Here’s to an organized 2017!
