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.
