When Is The Lilly Sale? Learn More About The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

 Tampa blogger Ayana Lage sits outside a Starbucks at Tampa Premium Outlets. She is holding a cup of coffee and wearing a pink Lilly Pulitzer tank top with a colorful Lilly Pulitzer skort. The table next to her has a blue bag with whales on it from Lyla Taylor Boutique.

THE 2018 LILLY SALE HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED! It’ll be September 10-12, 2018. So much for our August guesses, and thanks to Carly the Prepster for sharing the news!

It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year, and I’m not talking about Christmas. If you’re not a Lilly Pulitzer fan, you probably aren’t familiar with the Lilly sale. Unlike most brands, Lilly doesn’t have a sale section on its website. Instead, they have a sale every summer and winter that is complete madness but also so much fun! It’s filled with surprises and requires you to be pretty laid back … or else you’ll probably be anxious the whole time. When is Lilly Pulitzer’s Summer 2018 After Party Sale? No one is sure because it’s always a surprise, but we can guess based on past After Party Sale dates.

2014: August 19, 2014

2015: August 16, 2015

2016: August 22, 2016

2017: August 28, 2017

If Lilly Pulitzer follows the pattern it has so far, the sale will likely be the third or fourth week of August. But that’s part of the fun of the After Party Sale — they could change it up, and we would be along for the ride! But if you’re trying to save and figure out when the sale starts, history dictates that it’ll likely be somewhere between Aug. 14 and Aug. 31, 2018. Additionally, the sale usually starts on a Monday, which means we’re probably looking at Aug. 13, Aug, 20, or Aug. 27. UPDATE 7.28.18: It’s now rumored that it’ll happen after Labor Day 2018! Take this with a grain of salt, but this makes things even more exciting!

    Hi !
    One tip I have is to try on as many new Lilly items before the sale. Find your size and take a picture of the name and style of the items you love ! I even save my tags from new items, print out my purchase history so I can quickly find my items when they go on sale ! I still buy new in the beginning of summer, as I cant wait for all those wonderful colors and prints to enter my wardrobe !
    Happy shopping !
