Warehouse Sale THIS WEEK!
Hello friends! Many of you will be attending the OFFICIAL Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale later this week in Pennsylvania. While I am just a tad too far to make it in myself (only around 3000 miles away...), I am excited to see what everyone brings back and what the experience was like.
I am tentatively planning to make the Spring 2010 Warehouse Sale next year, so watch out King of Prussia!
Will you be going to the sale? What are you hoping to find there? Lilly Lovers want to know!
While we are on the topic of sales and Lilly Pulitzer, many Lilly Lovers were VERY unhappy with the very first online Lilly sale. Lilly's Facebook page was inundated with negative comments: "This isn't a good sale, guys. Only a handful of things in a few sizes available. If you're going to promote heavily, you gotta have the stuff to back it up. Badly done." and "are you kidding I just woke up for this?" were just a few of them.
I signed on at 4:35a (7:35 EST), and was surprised by the limited selection. The prices were also a little higher than I expected. I suppose with the huge email campaign they put out I thought it may have been a bigger deal. Having said that, I hope that Lilly continues to provide Lilly Lovers with a chance to buy directly from them, and at a discount. Everyone loves to save money, especially in the current economy. Many Lilly Lovers picked up items they had been eyeing for ages such as the gorgeous Seamus dress and Kassidy dresses. There were also the exquisite jeweled clutches. The turquoise one retailed for $850 and was $249 during the sale. Now, that's a sale!
What are your thoughts on the first-ever Lilly run online sale? Were you amazed by the selection and prices or did the whole thing sort of disappoint? Lilly Lovers want to know!!!!
