Lilly Pulitzer Online Sale (After Party Sale, APS) Tips

In a normal year, Lilly Pulitzer usually only puts sale items on their website twice a year - once in the late summer/early fall, once around/after New Years Day.These sales are called the After Party Sale (APS for short).  The online sale will go live on Monday, September 14th at 8am EST (ish - don't panic if nothing happens until 8:05 or so), and there is a virtual line to get into the website (it’s THAT popular!).Shipping can take up to 6 weeks after the sale.As an After Party Sale veteran, today I’ll be sharing the tips I’ve learned over the years. *This post contains affiliate links.  That means that purchases made through these links may result in a small commission to me, at no extra cost to you.  As always, all choices/opinions are my own.  Affiliate links are what keeps this site up and running, so thank you for your support!

Closet Cleanout Tips

Hi everyone!  Since I will be spending the next couple of weeks staying at home, I figured that it was the perfect time to clean out my closet.  I definitely have not perfected the process, but today I will be sharing a few tips that help me when I'm completing this process.

1. Group things by category (find EVERYTHING in that category that you own!) This is my biggest tip, and by far the one that helps me get rid of the most stuff!  First, choose what category you want to work on: purses, shoes, pants, athletic clothes, etc.  Then, gather every single item from that category that you own, and put them together somewhere with lots of open space.  Depending on how many of a certain item I own, I sometimes use the guest bed, a coffee table, or even our living room floor for this purpose.  Make sure you get every single item in the category you are working on, not just what's in your closet right now.  Working on swimsuits, and you have some packed away for the winter?  Get them …

UPF 50+ Martina Polo Top in Navy ($88) and Maryana Skort in High Tide Navy Tall Order ($98) I absolutely LOVED this Maryana Skort!  It's a knit nylon pique fabric, so it's nice and light and stretchy.  It also comes in a solid Prosecco Pink, which is a nice option if you prefer solids or want to wear it with a patterned top.  The cut of this skort is similar to the Monica Skort, but it's a softer, almost jersey-like kni…

Shiloh One Piece Swimsuit ($158) and 5" Buttercup Stretch Shorts in Prosecco Pink ($64) This swimsuit is adorable in person!  I took the same size as I wear in other Lilly Pulitzer one piece swimsuits.  For reference - I size up one size in the one pieces because I have a long torso, and Lilly Pulitzer one pieces in my norma…

Shawn Beaded Halter Top in Indigo Love You Bunches ($148) This Shawn top fits just like the other Shawn Tops I've tried on.  I'd say that it is true to size in general, but you may want to size up if you have very broad shoulders or a larger bust.  I was surprised at how thin this fabric feels, but even though this …
