 Hello friends and happy Thursday! I'm back today with a fun fall look. The combination of this hot pink boyfriend cardigan, brown corduroy skirt and leopard booties makes me SO happy. I always have been and always will be a pink girl. Even though I'm most excited to wear olive green, burnt orange, burgundy, brown and all the fun fall colors right now, I will still find a way to incorporate pink into my looks. No matter what season it is, you can always find me wearing pink :) 

Now for a little on this look. Let's start off with this pink boyfriend cardigan. First of all, I adore the fit! I think it's such an easy, slouchy look all while being such a fun shade of pink and classic with the tortoise buttons. This cutie is under $50. I would say it definitely runs TTS. I absolutely love this one, y'all! It is such a happy color and there are seriously countless ways to style it. For instance, it also looks adorable paired with a navy check button down and jeans for a more casual look. Next up is this adorable corduroy skirt. I highly recommend this one! It is almost sold out in the brown but it also comes in navy. Be sure to go up one size in this skirt! It's only $51. If you don't have a cord skirt in your fall wardrobe, do yourself a favor and get one!

Now for a little on my accessories. My leopard booties are a new purchase that I'm obsessed with! They are a little pricier than what I usually pay for shoes, but they are totally worth it. They run TTS. The leopard print is absolutely gorgeous, I also love the shape of the heel and the winged details in the back. I couldn't recommend them enough. I also recently picked up this adorable under $50 bag. The tortoise handles are my favorite part. It comes with an pouch that zips up inside the bag and it also snaps closed, which is great! It also comes in black

The number one accessory I want to tell you all about today is my new watch. I don't know about y'all, but I hate having anything big and chunky on my wrist, which is usually the case with watches (especially metal ones). I really wanted a gold metal watch. I found this one and absolutely fell in love with it! I had some Nordy notes to spend and decided that I would put them on this watch. I am so glad I did! It's 19mm, petite and absolute perfection. It adds the perfect amount of shine to your arm party and basically feels like you're wearing another bracelet since it's so small. I'm So pleased with it, y'all! If you're looking for a smaller metal watch, I highly recommend this one

Well that's about it for today! Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope y'all have the best Thursday.
Delightfully Yours,

Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope y'all have had a great week so far. Today I'm so excited to share a color combined that I'm absolutely loving. I have always been a pink and green girl. But I have never thought to wear it into the fall. I found this adorable fall pink and green dress for Madeline and absolutely fell in love with it! I think it's perfect for now, and when it gets a little cooler out, I plan to layer it with an olive green vest, tights and booties. It's the most precious thing and of course she loves the elephants! However, it sparked an idea for a fun mommy and me look.

Just before I had found the dress for Madeline, I had purchased this olive green slip dress for myself. Y'all this cutie is only $24!! I love a good slip dress to layer with cardigans for fall. When Madeline's dress came in, I loved the way both my dress and hers looked together. I then came across this sweet light pink cardigan. Trust me when I say that you need this one in your life! It's so cozy and only $35!  I absolutely adore my dress and cardigan paired with her little dress. And of course I added in my very favorite pair of booties. I still can't get over the cuteness of these ruffle + blush ones. As for sizing, my slip dress does run a little small, so I recommend going up one size in this ons (wearing a size 2, for reference) and my cardigan runs TTS (wearing a size XS).

Here's a fun tip when putting together mommy and me looks! First find a fun printed piece for your little one. This dress Madeline is wearing here is a great example. If it is a busy print with multiple colors in it, then you're on the right track! Then pull a few of the colors in your little one's printed piece to create your own coordinating look. For example, I chose light pink and olive green from her dress to create my own look. Here's another example. This dress has great colors for your little. You could take the mustard yellow color (like this scarf) and pair it with jeans and a ivory cardigan to create a fun coordinating look for yourself. This is also helpful if you're planning any family photos anytime soon.

Also, if y'all have any fun fall craft ideas, I'd love to hear! We were stuck inside over the weekend with lots of rain. Madeline loves to play outside, so we had to find fun things to do inside. I pulled out my old box with all of the fun crafts I used to do when I was little. One in particular is this bead craft. Did y'all ever do these?! My sister and I loved making them, and Madeline and I had so much fun with them over the weekend. Anyways, we went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and found some really fun, festive crafts to make. I also found a more updated version of the bead crafts (that's not 20+ years old haha). If y'all have any fun crafts to share, I'd love to hear about them! Also, would y'all be interested in a blog post on fun crafts to do with your kids?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Wednesday.
Delightful Yours,

Fifteen Fall Favorites I'm Currently Loving

Fifteen Fall Favorites I'm Currently Loving - Something Delightful Blog
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 
9 // 10 // 11 // 12 // 13 // 14 // 15

Happy Thursday, friends! It may still be super warm outside, but fall is on my mind. I can't wait for cooler, crisp temps so that I can wear all of my favorite cardigans and sweaters. My favorite colors to wear for fall are olive green, burnt orange, tans/browns, golden and mustard yellows, burgundy, and deep pinks. My entire fall wardrobe has been pretty consistent with these colors. 

Today I've rounded up fifteen perfect fall pieces that have me so excited for all things fall. Everything (except for one of the pairs of booties) are under $100. Next week I will be sharing a post on all the essentials you need to build the perfect fall wardrobe. But here is a peek at some of my current favorites. I am more than obsessed with all of these pieces!

How gorgeous is this brown cardigan (#3)?! I think the style and color are both gorgeous. I'm all about chunky knits. I also just ordered these leopard booties (#10) pictured above. I have a feeling they will go with SO many looks. One of my favorite looks to wear for fall is a fall skirt paired with a cami and cardigan or a sweater. And then pair the look with booties or boots. This fall floral printed skirt (#5) is perfection! 

Which is your favorite? Do you have a certain color or colors you are loving for the fall?

Thanks for stopping by, friends! Have a great day.
Delightfully Yours,

Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope you all have had a great week so far :) Getting back in town Sunday and kicking off Monday with the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale (which ends tonight...see my picks and purchases here) starting on Monday, I had to spend yesterday playing catch up. Sorting through emails, shooting some content for the week, unpacking and more were all on the list. I'm feeling a little more organized today. It's amazing what a difference feeling even somewhat organized can do. 

Today I'm excited to share another fun look to get you into fall. I recently mentioned my growing obsession for camo. I purchased this camo utility skirt (under $100), and needless to say, I absolutely LOVE it! I love how many ways you can style it. It does run on the smaller side. I recommend going up two sizes in this one for a comfortable fit. But overall, it's such a cute and versatile piece. 

I also wanted to make my camo look a little more feminine, if you will. Another print I'm obsessed with and consider to be a basic if leopard. I also feel that camo also falls in the category of being a basic print, so I thought it would be fun to pair the two together. I absolutely love it! If you love leopard, do yourself a favor and get this belt! I searched for a leopard belt for forever last year and could not find what I was looking for. This one is perfection! It's under $40 and currently 30% off on top of that. I know I will be getting a ton of use out of it. Such a fun way to add in a pop of leopard. I have also been on the search for the perfect pair of leopard booties and just ordered this pair. I think they will coordinate so well with the belt. I just love adding in pops of leopard. 

And lastly, I want to mention two other fall basics that are both 40% off. This white ribbed tee is perfection. It's one of those pieces you will get so much wear out of. I styled it by itself in this post. And I also love the way it looks layered with a vest and tucked into a skirt as I have it here. Such a good one, and it's on sale for $20. This cashmere vest is the other piece worth mentioning. I absolutely love it! If you've seen my try-on sessions on Instagram, you have seen how many times I've styled this one piece. The brown appears to be sold out, but it is still available in three other colors.

Well that's about it for today! I hope y'all have a great Wednesday :)
Delightfully Yours,

Six Dresses (Along With Sizing Info) included in the Summer 2018 Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

Hello friends! Happy Sunday! We are just one day away from the start of the summer 2018 Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale. I don't know about y'all, but I'm SO excited! If you missed it, I shared an entire post where I talked about a ton of helpful tips to successfully shop this celebration of a sale. In that post, I'm also giving away a $100 Lilly e-gift card, which ends tonight at 7PM EST. So, if you haven't entered hurry on over and do so. 

I'm so excited for today's post because I'm sharing every piece I've purchased over the past few months that will be included in the summer 2018 Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale. How do I know they will be included? Well if you click through to each link of the pieces I'm about to share, you'll see that the website says they are no longer available. However, a week or so ago, these pieces were in stock in just about every size online! This simply means that they have removed the inventory from the website to save it up for the big sale on Monday. So the fact that it says no longer available (only until Monday, that is) is because it will be included in the APS. 

If you've shopped the Lilly sale before or checkout my post on all the details, you know that one catch with this sale is that all purchases are finale sale! One very important part of this is knowing your size. It would be great if all Lilly pieces fit the same, but of course that's not the case. In this post, I will also be sharing my thoughts on the fit of each piece along with which size I own. I will also be sharing details on the pieces I've purchased for Madeline. I hope y'all find this to be helpful :)


Lilly Pulitzer Devina Dress in Nauti Navy Boho Bateau - Something Delightful Blog
Lilly Pulitzer Devina Dress in Nauti Navy Boho Bateau - Something Delightful Blog
Lilly Pulitzer Devina Dress in Nauti Navy Boho Bateau - Something Delightful Blog

The first dress I'm chatting about today is the Devina Dress in Nauti Navy Boho Bateau. I have to say that the Devina Dress is probably my most loved style Lilly dress of all time. This is the one I wore on Mother's Day this year. Something about the fit of this one is so feminine, flattering and fun (can we talk about the ruffle straps!!!). That's why I adore this dress. I was at first a little concerned about the length of this dress, even though I could always have it hemmed (I do try to avoid that) since online the dress is stated to be 36 inches long. I'm 5'2 and was very pleasantly surprised that it hit me right at the knee. I loved the length. I would also say it runs true to size, if anything a little on the roomy side. I have the size 0, my regular size, and found it to fit very comfortably with a little room in the bust and stomach area. I liked it this way, as I mentioned, it fits very comfortably. The only thing I would say was that the straps felt a little big and slid off at times. And with the ruffles, they would be very difficult to alter. So I would suggest sticking to your regular size overall. You can easily take a piece in, but if it fits too small, there's not much you can do. I simply can't say enough good things about this dress!

I also purchased a matching piece for Madeline in this print as we always twin on Mother's Day. Madeline has on the Mini Harper Shift. I love this style dress for her! The great thing is that she can usually get two years of use out of this style dress. The ones I purchased for her last year in this style fit her again this year (a 2T-3T). However next year I feel certain she will need the girls size 4-5. But again it will fit her next year and the year after that, most likely. So, if I purchase anything in this style dress during the sale, I will go ahead and order her a size 4-5 for next spring and summer. 

I also have to mention my Mama's dress! She is wearing the Leigh Stretch Shift. It too will be included in the sale. I asked her, and she said it definitely runs true to size. I believe she did have the hem let out of hers to get the length to where she liked it. That's another great thing you can do with Lilly dresses to add in length, if needed!


Lilly Pulitzer Devina Dress in Pink Cosmo Seersucker - Something Delightful Blog
Lilly Pulitzer Devina Dress in Pink Cosmo Seersucker - Something Delightful Blog
Lilly Pulitzer Girls Kinley Dress in Pink Cosmo Seersucker - Something Delightful Blog 

Again I'm sharing the Devina Dress, but this time in the Pink Cosmo Seersucker print. Y'all I can safely say that this dress is quite possibly my favorite Lilly dress of all time. I know it's not the traditional Lilly print dress, but something about this just makes me so happy. Again, I adore the Devina style dress. But the pretty pink seersucker print combined with the bold ruffle sleeves is just about the most amazing combination ever. Now for the fit. I ordered this dress going by the sizing of the previous Devina dress I purchased. This one runs smaller. My guess is the fact that the seersucker doesn't have as much give in the fabric as the other one does. I ordered my regular size in this one (a 0) and it fits a lot more snug as I mentioned. I decided to keep the 0, but in all honesty it's a little hard to breathe in it haha. I wish I had gone with the size 2. So, my suggestion would be to size up one size in this one. This one is even an inch shorter in length. 

Madeline has a matching dress for this one as well. Hers is the Kinley Dress in Pink Cosmo Seersucker. I absolutely adore everything about this sweet little dress as well. It does run true to size. I got Madeline the size 3, and it fits her perfectly. 


Lilly Pulitzer Sandi Stretch Shift Dress - Something Delightful Blog

Next I'm sharing details on the Sandi Stretch Shift Dress. This one was my first Lilly purchase of 2018 and my Easter dress! Y'all I simply adore this dress. It comes in (I think) three colors: yellow, blue and white. I could not say enough about this gorgeous dress. The lace trim details are simply amazing. And it has the most beautiful, elegant lace detail trailing down the back. Obviously, I purchased it in yellow but loved the other color options as well. This dress does run true to size. I went with a 0, and loved the fit. If anything, it did have some extra room. But just enough to make it comfortable, in my opinion. I'm so excited this one will be included in the sale! 


Lilly Pulitzer Lexi Dress in Beach Please - Something Delightful Blog
Lilly Pulitzer Lexi Dress in Beach Please - Something Delightful Blog

This next dress is what I'd say is my most-worn Lilly dress of 2018: the Lexi Dress. I got so much use out of this style! I dressed it up with ease and casual it down as well. I wore it to run errands in or go out to dinner in. It is probably the most versatile Lilly dress I've ever owed! The strappy slip dress style makes it easy to casual down, yet the polyester material allows you to dress it up so easily. I'd say it runs true to size, if anything a little on the larger side. That is mainly because it is a loose fit, which I love! So many Lilly dresses are form fitting, so it was nice to have a break from that with this one. I ordered is in the XS and loved the fit. It's also nice that the straps are adjustable. I'd say stick with your regular size, or if you feel comfortable you could even go down one, in the Lexi Dress.

Madeline also had a matching dress in the "Beach Please" print. Her dress is the Mini Lindell Dress. I loved this one for two reasons. First off, the balloon sleeves are just adorable! Secondly, I never had to iron this one (Yes, please!). Again, she had the size XS (size 2t-3t) in this one. With this style dress, it is another one they can wear over two years, if she's currently at the smaller size of the two. 


Lilly Pulitzer Shelli Stretch Shift Dress in Salt in the Air - Something Delightful Blog
Lilly Pulitzer Shelli Stretch Shift Dress in Salt in the Air - Something Delightful Blog
Lilly Pulitzer Girls Mini Harper Dress in Muti Salt in the Air - Something Delightful Blog

This dress, the Shelli Shift Dress, was my very favorite one to wear while at the beach this past summer. I loved how easy and breezy this one is. And how darling is the tie detail in the back?! When I first saw this dress, I thought it would certainly be difficult to wear a bra with. However, the amazing news is that it already has a built-in bra! And a great, really supportive one as well! I think it is such a fun piece. I would say this one runs true to size as well. I also love that you can not only adjust the straps on this one but also tie the back where where it fits best. 

Madeline is again wearing the Mini Harper Shift but this time in the Salt in the Air print. Again it's a great one to get so much wear out of. If your little girl is currently in a size 2t, 4, 6, etc. They will be able to wear that size for the next two years, most likely. And it's another one you don't have to iron! Again I purchased the XS (2t-3t) in this one.


Lilly Pulitzer Mila Shift Dress in Lobsters in Love - Something Delightful Blog
Lilly Pulitzer Mila Shift Dress in Lobsters in Love - Something Delightful Blog
Lilly Pulitzer Mila Shift Dress in Lobsters in Love - Something Delightful Blog

This mommy and me Lilly look is the one I shared in my blog post from Friday. The Mila Shift Dress is probably the most trustworthy, true, pleasing Lilly dress style of all. I also feel like is it the most-seen style Lilly dress. By that, I mean that Lilly brings out the most prints in this one than any other dress. I'm absolutely obsessed with this classic style! The Lobsters in Love print is absolutely adorable. I love the white lace trim details going down the sides of this one. It adds the best vintage vibe. I think if I had to choose the most trust-worthy dress of all, the Mila Shift would be it. I would say it most definitely runs true to size. I got my regular size and am very pleased with the fit. However, it is the shortest of all the dresses I purchased. If you're on the petite side, you should be good to go. Again the great news is that the hem can be let out, which would add about two extra inches in length to this dress. 

Here Madeline is wearing the Little Lilly Classic Shift Dress in Lobsters in Love. I think the classic shifts for girls are my favorite little Lilly dress style of all. It brings back so many memories of the ones my mama dressed me in when I was Madeline's age. They're just about the sweetest things. This style dress runs true to size as well. I got Madeline the 3T. 

 Another piece of advice that I have found helpful is to click through to the Lilly website the night before the sale. I'm not sure if there's actually something to that, but when I have in the past, it always puts my closer to the front of the line when the sale begins. Again, not sure if it's just by chance, but I'll definitely be doing it again for this sale :)

Well that's about it! If you follow me on Instagram, be sure to check out my stories as I will be posting a try-on session, showing each of these dresses in closer detail. I hope y'all found this helpful. Get excited and have your alarms set and ready to go tomorrow morning.

Thanks for stopping by!
Delightfully Yours,

*SHOPPING UPDATE*

Whew that was definitely a whirlwind of a shopping experience! I started off being number 61,448 in line. In the past, the line has moved quickly, but not this time, I feel! I was in line for almost two hours. But the good news is that when I finally got in, the selection was still absolutely incredible! Pages upon pages of dresses for unbelievable prices. I was also surprised to see that most of them from this year were in stock in pretty much every size. However, I was little disappointed with the kid's selection. I didn't think there was as much for kids as I've seen in the past. There were two pages total, I think. I really wanted to get some of the Little Lilly Classic Shifts for Madeline, but they were all sold out in a size 4. I will say that there was an AMAZING selection of cardigans in the sale. Like soooo many to choose from. 

Now, for what I purchased! For myself, I got the Fiesta Stretch Dress in "Nauti Navy Beyond the Sea" because I have been eyeing this dress all summer! I adore the ruffle sleeve details and the little cutout in the back. It was on sale for $59! I also got the Faire Sweater Dress in true navy. It's just an easy navy, cold shoulder sweater dress that I think is adorable! It will look so cute paired with a belt and knee high boots for fall. It's on sale for $49! I also got a new Elsa Top in the color Sand Bar. It's gorgeous! I think it will be the perfect color for fall. It's on sale for only $39! Seriously so good. I also got the Dusk Racerback Velvet Cami in true navy. Need I say more haha? I navy velvet cami will certainly be a go-to piece. It is only $29! And lastly for myself, I got the Feria Cardigan in the color "Sand Bar Metallic." I adore the fringe hem details. It is only $44. For Madeline, I did end up getting her two things even though sizes were limited for her. I got her the Mini Essie Dress in the print "Off the Grid." She doesn't have the Essie dress, so I'm really excited for this one. I also got her the Mini Tatum Cardigan. Again I love the fringe hem details. We will be able to twin in our cardigans :) Her pieces were on sale for $29 and $39. I'd love to hear if you purchased anything! Let me know int he comments below. 

Now for the fun part! I'm going to share all of my favorites from every category below, starting with dresses, then tops (including cardigans), then bottoms, then kids:

Hello friends and happy Friday! I know that I've been in full on fall mode recently, sharing so many looks to get us ready for fall. But today, I'm bringing back the summer vibes for a very special reason. If you're a fellow Lilly lover like I am, then I have the very best news for you! The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale begins this coming Monday, September 10th, at 8 AM EST. All I can say is GET EXCITED! The sale gets better and better every year. There are sure to be some amazing pieces included. Today I'm sharing a mommy and me Lilly look that is going to be included in the APS (I'll share how I know below), my favorite tips and tricks for shopping the sale, and at the very end of the post, I'm giving away a $100 Lilly e-gift card to one lucky winner :)

What is the Lilly Pulitzer APS, you may ask? Well if you're new to shopping this sale, it is an opportunity to buy up Lilly pieces at an AMAZING price for both women and kids. Pieces are usually 50% off and sometimes even more than that. Lilly does not run sales regularly throughout the year as they save up for this huge celebration of a sale. They always have one at the end of summer and one usually in January. But the summer sale is always the very best! Shift dresses are always under $100, many under $70. There is always a great selection of cardigans (some cashmere) for fall. There will be tops, shorts, bottoms, everything! ANDD of course there will be Lilly for girls so you can twin with your mini. There's just something about wearing Lilly that makes you feel happy. I have so many memories wearing it when I was little. My Mama would dress my sister and I in matching shifts (I still have them all and need to try them on Madeline). I still love wearing Lilly and love it even more now that I can twin in it with Madeline.

As I mentioned, I'm SO excited to share this Lilly look with y'all today as I'm it will be included in the sale. Here's how I know! If you click through the link to both of our dresses, you'll see it says that this item is no longer available. How is that possible? Just a week or so ago, my dress was available in every size!!! Well, usually within the week leading up to the sale, Lilly removes all of the inventory from the website that will be included in the After Party Sale. So the fact that it says our dresses are no longer available is actually a great thing! It just means that they are being held back for the sale and will be super on sale come Monday :) I'm wearing the Mila Shift in the "Lobsters in Love" print and Madeline is wearing the Little Lilly Classic Shift in "Lobsters in Love" as well.

How The Sale Works:

The Lilly Pulitzer APS works by means of a virtual line. Don't let this scare you as this is actually a blessing (it keeps the site from crashing!). When you enter the sale on Monday, do not freak out if you enter right at 8:00AM to see that you're number 89,987 in line (this has happened to me many times). The good news is that line tends to move very quickly, and even when you get to shop there will still be lots of goodies to choose from. But remember, you must move quickly once you enter the sale, because things do sell out in the blink of an eye and just because something is in your shopping cart doesn't mean it won't sell out. Be sure to see my tips below, as this will help you prepare a game plan for shopping the sale :) 

And lastly, it's important to remember that all sales are final with the APS! So, know your size and know what you're needing! You can also shop the sale as many times as you'd like. However, you will be placed back in the virtual line after checking out each time. Oh and remember, once you enter the sale and are placed in the virtual line, do not refresh the page! It will do that on its own for you once it's your turn to enter. Refreshing only puts you to the back of the line.

As I've mentioned in the past, there is a method to shopping the APS. Things move so quickly. If you don't shop with game plan, there's a pretty good chance you just may go into full on panic mode haha and you loose your items. Next, I'm sharing my favorite tips and tricks to shopping the sale. Most of these are things you can do before hand that will help you tremendously when it comes time to shop. See them below:

My tips for shopping the sale:

Have your account set up ahead of time
If you don't already have a Lilly Pulitzer account set up, head over to Lilly now and do so (you can set one up here). You must have an account set up before you can place an order. It takes a few minutes, and since items are literally flying off the site by the second, you want to be able to do as many things in advanced as possible. And even if you do already have one set up, go ahead and log in just to make sure that you remember your log in info. Also, while you're already logging in on the site, make sure that your info (shipping, billing, payment) is correct and current. If you do these things ahead of time, literally all you'll have to do for the order is click, click and click! 

Shop Simultaneously 
You can shop from as many devices as you choose to! Shop from your computer, your iPad, your iPhone, two computers, whatever! I always enter the sale from my computer right at 8, and I enter though my phone or iPad as well. So then whichever one I get through the sale to first, that's the one I shop on! 

Shop Fast
Remember not to waste time during this sale. Try to know what you want well in advanced. Look through your Lilly. Are you wanting some new shifts for next spring and summer? Are you wanting some cashmere cardigans for fall? Is there a certain print you're wanting? Are you wanting some little shifts for your mini? Think about these things now, make a list and have a game plan for the sale. That way, when you enter the sale, you already have an idea of what you're hoping to purchase. It allows you to shop fast! Items go in the blink of an eye, and nothing is "yours" until you hit "place order" so remember to make quick decisions. This leads to...

Shop Smart
I mentioned earlier that it's important to know what you're wanting, because all sales are final for this sale. Know what you're looking to buy, and don't buy just to buy. I have fallen guilty of that several times in the past and have wished that I could return some things, but that's not possible with this sale. Set a budget of how much you're willing to spend, if this helps you. It's also important to know your sizing. You can check out Lilly's sizing info here! And be sure to check back to my blog on Sunday for some helpful info concerning sizing.

Shop Throughout the Day
As I mentioned earlier, you can shop the sale as many times as you please. As the day goes on, the line pretty much diminishes. I always overlook items the first time that I shop the sale. New surprise piece are usually added throughout the two day span of the sale. Just another reason to shop it multiple times, right?! I'll be sure to keep y'all updated on this through my Instagram and IG stories, so be sure to hop on over and follow me there. 

Remember To Be Gracious
I always remind myself that bottom line, it's just a sale. Yes, it deserves tons of excitement, but if you don't walk away getting everything you wanted, don't be bummed. There will be other Lilly sales in the future. I also find it so disheartening when technical difficulties occur, which results in some unhappy Lilly lovers voicing their opinions. It's so great that Lilly does this sale, so remember to remain respectful and be gracious that there's an opportunity to get such amazing deals on Lilly.

Whew did I miss anything? These are the tips I have found to be helpful in the past. And be sure to check out Lilly's FAQs page for more!
