Style: A Report from the Lilly Pulitzer Spring Warehouse Sale & Details on Winter 2012 Sale

If you only go to one warehouse or sample sale per year, I highly recommend it be Lilly Pulitzer's. It's a little bit of a trek if you're in New York City but I thought it was well worth it!  I definitely plan on checking out their one in winter (November 30th - December 1st, 2012). The sale is located at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. It's very close to Lilly Pulitzer's HQ in King of Prussia, PA.

Although it's a very popular sale, you don't have to worry if you can't make it for the first day. I've heard that it's usually just a few of the accessories and seconds / samples that sell out in the beginning. However, I went to the recent Spring 2012 Sale on the second day (this one lasted 3 days) and I found an almost overwhelmingly large selection of dresses, separates, swimsuits, and quite a few shoes, accessories, and jewelry. There wasn't a men's section but there was a fairly large children's section.

The size selection was pretty extensive too. In the separates there was a slightly larger selection of items in Size S. Regardless, it's an excellent sale for Lilly lovers of all sizes!

Here's a breakdown of the basic pricing:

Necklaces $18 (originally $48)
Dresses "Guiliana", "Ricci", "Adalie" $69-89 (originally $168+)
Cotton "Mandy" L/S Shirts $34 (originally $68)
Swimsuit "Caye" Tankini Tops $39 (originally $88)
Swimsuit "Surfs Up" Bottoms $29 (originally $68)
Silk "Elsa" L/S Tops $69 (originally $158)
Seconds - Skirts $10 (originally $128, minor wear & tear)

Originally Gifts w/ Purchase:
Pillows, Christmas Ornaments, etc ~$15-20
Wicker Fabric Lined Picnic Baskets $35

A few of the prints that were available in great quantities at the sale:

There were a few items at the sale that are still available online including: 1 Piece Swimsuits in Bright Navy Mini Touchy Feely (Octopus), Keene Bandeau Swimsuit Top in Turquoise Coral Me Crazy, Sea Me Long Necklace, and the Lottie Dress in Multi Lillys State of Mind Patch.

NOTE: This sale has ended but the next one will take place at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA from November 30th - December 1st, 2012. If you like what you see from this post, then you won't want to miss this sale in a few months! In the meantime if you love a print that's been recently retired, have a look on E-bay or the Re-Lilly Facebook Group.

Style: Charter Club at Macy's - Adorable Styles At Great Prices!

Charter Club at Macy's

My latest style obsession is Charter Club, available exclusively at Macy's. They have adorable tunic tops and dresses at very affordable prices. All of the items I have featured above range from just $18-$69! I personally own the two tunic tops on the right hand side (2 bamboo print ones in brown & white and green & white; 4 trellis print ones in pink, yellow, red, and turquoise). My mother got the pink tunic top on the bottom left and adores it too! They are AMAZING go-to shirts for summer. They pair fantastically with white jeans, linen or dress pants,  Jack Rodgers sandals, a playful summer clutch, and your favorite colorful jewelry! They are excellent quality and provide real value for the money.

Another special characteristic of Charter Club clothing is that, especially in the store, you will find all of their items in a wide variety of sizes. They have a pretty extensive collection of items in regular sizes 0/2 to 16/18 and in addition they also offer many of the same items in their Petites and Plus Size/Women's Size collections. So, no matter your size or shape you can enjoy the fantastic designs that they have to offer. Additionally, the designs are appealing to women of a variety of different ages.

If you haven't checked out Charter Club yet, be sure to stop by your local Macy's store, especially if you like slightly pricier brands like J.McLaughlin, Roberta Roller Rabbit, Tory Burch, Calypso St. Barth, and Lilly Pulitzer (pretty much all of my fave designers) because you will LOVE this brand too!
