Today is the day!

I have been prepping for this day since last years event. It is somewhat like training for a marathon or studying for a big exam. The workouts, the focus, the endurance, and preparing my strategy.

THE LILLY PULITZER WAREHOUSE SALE
When you are in a sea of pink and green Lilly prints at 70% off it is easy to lose your head. Here are some rules that I follow at the Lilly sale!


1. Try not to make eye contact with other shoppers. You may run in to someone you know that will take up valuable shopping time.
2. Take a big shopping bag the second you walk in!
3. If you think you like it, put it in the bag, they have tables where you can sort and ditch!
4. Wear your best underwear and bra...the fitting room is a big giant open space.
5. The fitting room is a great place to find items that may have been ditched by another shopper.
6. NEVER wear Lilly to the Lilly Sale...there will be many violators of this rule, trust me!
7. Know where they bring out the goods. It is a parade of rolling racks with more stuff.
8. Leave the kids at home!
9. Focus, focus, focus!
10. Be extra sweet to your husband the days before and after the sale!


I'll share my loot with you tomorrow!
