Lilly Endless Summer Sale Wrap-up

My dream Lilly dress, the Delia in “Let’s Cha Cha” print.

With just an hour left to score a deal, the Lilly Pulitzer Endless Summer Sale will come to an end tonight at 11:59 p.m. I always love the thrill of a sale, and this one was no different. As the clock struck eight, I felt adrenaline running through my veins. I had been lusting over a specific Lilly dress all season, the Delia dress in “Let’s Cha Cha,” and I was determined to nab it.

Unfortunately, the universe was against me. When I was finally able to get onto the site around 2:30 p.m. (due to the site constantly crashing), I quickly navigated to my dream dress but could not find it listed in my favorite print. I finished shopping on the site and tried all of the Lilly signature stores with online shopping capabilities, only to find the two words that are a shopper’s worst nightmare: SOLD OUT.

I could have cried. I had tried on the Delia dress earlier in the summer in a Palm Beach Lilly Store and fell in love, but I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on a cotton shift. I probably could have made a convincing argument for the dress if I was still attending college in Coral Gables, Fla. But, with the dreary New York fall and winter approaching, I knew it wasn’t a smart or thrifty decision. I resolved to wait until the annual Endless Summer Sale, and I now found myself with a sinking feeling in my stomach.

Rylan Dress in Flutter Blue Lurex Boucle Stripe

Nevertheless, I did buy some beautiful clothes and I am very happy with my shopping steals.

I decided on the Rylan dress, marked down to $89 from $278, and the Hannah sweater dress, marked down to $59 from $198. I felt I could transition both pieces into the fall, using some clothes and accessories I already had. I also comparison shopped on the Lilly signature store websites and found some clothing marked down even lower on there. It was very tempting to continue shopping, but I resisted.

What shopping deals did you score? Was there a dream dress that slipped through your fingers too? What was your favorite purchase? Share below and include some photos of your fashion steals!

    Try Belk department store. In Phipps Plaza, Atlanta. They will ship to you. They have a Lilly department. I was there Saturday and they had your print in the shift marked at $99.

    I too was obsessing over the Delia in Cha Cha. I had the same issues with the LP site and by the time I got on – it was gone. I did manage to find it at a signature store in my size on Tuesday. I also wanted the popover in cha cha and have had NO luck. You wouldn’t believe the number of places I called! in any event, I did make some great scores in addition to the Delia – the amada in the overboard/stripe pattern, the carmine dress in get nauti, a pair of McKims, the Sloane dress that was on the flash sale and the Delia in Make a Splash. I had *much* better luck with the signature stores ESPECIALLY sandpiper clothiers where I found the Delia in cha cha. That site had the dress listed for cheaper AND allowed me to use a 20% off code, which they send to you if you sign up for their newsletter!

    Good luck finding the Delia. I am SURE it will turn up on eBay or re-Lilly. Enjoy your new purchases!

    Oooh I got the Rylan dress a few weeks ago at belks for $62, love that dress! Still trying to figure out more ways to wear it so that it doesn’t look so summery though. Any ideas? 🙂

      Wow that is such a good deal, congrats! I just received it in the mail a day or so ago and it is much more summery than I expected. Haha so no ideas just yet, but definitely glad I got it on sale and didn’t pay full price. I expected the stripes to be more gray-ish than pale blue. I think different belts/sweaters/types of shoes might help transition it into fall. What do you think??

      • Ryan says:

        That’s kind of what I was thinking as well! Going to experiment with maybe tights/flats with maybe a belt? I’d love to be able to wear it with boots but not sure about that yet haha. Let me know if you have any ideas!
