How to Work Lilly Pulitzer into Your Wardrobe + MAJOR Lilly Sale

Happy Monday! If you’ve been around for awhile, then you know LIlly Pulitzer is one of my favorite brands. Their prints are just so bright, colorful, and HAPPY.  Lilly Pulitzer launched an AMAZING sale on Friday that ends tonight, and the more you spend, the more you save.  Pre-pandemic, Lilly only used to do sales twice per year, but this sale is on even the new stuff, so it’s a big deal. But before we get into the sale, I wanted to chat about how to affordably mix Lilly Pulitzer into your wardrobe. You do NOT have to wear head-to-toe Lilly Pulitzer.

Lilly Pulitzer Etta tee // pull-on jean shorts–on sale under $15 // clear strap sandals–on sale for $15.99 // Dawn Graham Designs earrings // Kendra Scott Elisa necklace–save 25% off w/ promo code 265059VIP25 (some exclusions apply) // Tory Burch Kira bag–limited colors on sale for $299 (smaller bag in same color, dupe option for smaller bag)

A great way to start mixing Lilly Pulitzer into your wardrobe is to mix it with simple pieces you already own. I love the Etta tees–start by pairing them with solid color shorts or leggings. I wear them a lot with black leggings when it’s cooler out. Here, I’m paired them with pull-on jean shorts, which is another hot trend for spring and summer. You can also pick a pair of shorts that match one of the colors in the top, or, maybe the easiest way of all, just pair the tee with some white shorts for a breezy look.

Now, you can also do this in the reverse–get a pair of patterned Lilly Pulitzer shorts, like these Buttercups, and pair them with a plain colored tee. A white tee always looks fresh against Lilly shorts too. Don’t feel like you have to break the bank to wear Lilly, because you definitely don’t.

Today’s sale has some awesome deals. You save 30% off a purchase of $100, 40% off a purchase of $250, or 50% off a purchase of $500 or more. This would make a great Mother’s Day gift (though the company is saying shipping is delayed). I’m going to link some of the items I ordered below, in case you need some shopping inspiration.
