Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale 2011 Recap

I'm back from Pennsylvania and so thrilled to share my Lilly Warehouse Sale recap with you!  I got to the Convention Center on Wednesday night and lots of Lilly loving ladies were waiting in line for a number!  They camp out overnight for the coveted number! 
Since I was working all day, I wasn't able to get a great number but hey, at least I got one!  They are very important to get in the sale earlier rather than later!

I stayed the night at the hotel right at the Convention Center and it was so easy.  I definitely recommend staying at the Scanticon!  You can just take the elevator right downstairs at 4:15am!

I got into the sale around 5:30am.  It opened at 5 so I only had to wait for the others to go in before me.  There were soooo many more things this year than last June.  Lots more samples too! 

As you can see, everything is very organized and everyone is so nice that is working the sale!  Oh - the employees get to shop the day before everyone....wouldn't that be great to be an employees?  All the clothing is by type then by size.  Minnie's separated out and so are all the accessories.  Lots of Murfee Scarves this year too!

So here are the goods!  These are Anna Kate's finds!  I talked to Emily at 6am about what she would want for her.  From L to R - sample shift dress, tunic, sample pants and sample dress!  All for $75!

Suz requested this dress!  It was $69.  Oh and best part about PA - no tax!

I got Kelly some great things too!  Sample shirt ($30), amazing pink dress with special beading on top ($89) (love this one!), navy Adelson ($119) and cardigan ($29).

And I really made an effort to not get dresses for myself so I tried to get some different things.  L to R - tunic/bathing suit cover up (light and comfy for summer), white Heather tank, Callahan shorts, Shauna dress and on top is the one shoulder silk top.  Oh and I scored the Gold McKim wedges as a sample for $40.  All of this was less than $300.
So as you can see - lots of deals to be had ladies!  I know there will be lots left for you if you plan to go today or tomorrow!

Let me know if you have any questions - I'd be happy to help!  And please post your recaps as I'm anxious to see what you all found!

Dear Anne,

Ah, the life.

spending.

Have a great weekend.

Cheers,

It was a pleasure to meet you at the sale! We ended up having to leave early because Olivia became ill but we scored lots of goodies before we left. I hope to see you at the next sale and on Re-Lilly!
