So, as I am sure many of you heard Lilly Pulitzer had her New Year Cheer Sale January 3-4. This is one of the bigger sales that she hosts in the year (there is one right before the school year begins, perfect for stocking up for recruitment!). Now, I am IN LOVE with it all so it was very hard for me to sit down and not purchase everything I wanted. There were some items that sold out before I was able to purchase them (which is probably a good thing) but I wanted to share everything I was able to purchase (and how much money I saved)!
The first thing I purchased (what I wanted the most) was a Lilly Jewelry Box. I am moving in to the sorority house in the fall, and the color scheme of my room is going to play off of the pattern on this Jewelry Box! The box has so much space, and will be a good way for me to get rig of all of the cardboard boxes I currently use to store my jewelry. I am also excited to begin matching items in my room around this pattern! The Jewelry box was originally $78.00 and I was able to purchase it for $44.00, that is $34.00 of savings! (This item is sold out on the Lilly website, but I was able to find it somewhere else online)
The next item I purchased was a pair of Resort Chic Navy Wedge Shoes. I was so excited to see that she had shoes on sale, I am always looking for shoes that you can dress up, or down. They are the perfect shade to go with almost all of my clothing and I am so excited to wear them! These wedges were originally $228.00 and i purchased them for $64.00 that is $164.00 of savings! (These were also sold out at the Lilly store online but I was able to find a different website.
The next item I purchased was an ID Wristlet in the Jade Green Punkin Chunkin pattern for my mom. I have one in the Kappa Delta print, and my mom loved it so much she wanted me to purchase her one, in a different print of course! These wristlits have an original price of $38.00 and I purchased it for $19.00. That is a total savings of $19.00.
The next item I purchased was the Davie Dress in Hollyhock Gigi. I had purchased this dress on Saturday in a different pattern at Belk for a higher price, once I saw that this one was on sale for a better price I purchased it (you can imagine what I did with the other one)! This dress will go perfectly with my new shoes (in the picture the model is wearing them) and it is thin enough that I will be able to wear it through the spring an smaybe even the summer. The dress originates for $168 and I was able to purchase it for $44, that is a savings of $124. (This is also sold out at Lilly so I found a different site)
The next item I purchased was the Sommerset Dress in Emerald. I love the Lilly dresses like these, they are so simple but with the addition or a belt, or heels they can be so dressed up, I love to wear mine with Jacks. This dress originates for $98 but I was bale to purchase it for $34, that is a total savings of $64! (This is also sold out at Lilly so I found a different site)
The next item I purchases was the Minnow Skirt in Multi Secret Garden Mini. This was the pattern I originally purchased the Davie Dress in, but it is a lot to handle on a dress, I think the pattern goes perfect with a skirt, so I got it! This Skirt originates for $88 and I was able to purchase it for $29, that is a total savings of $59. (This is also sold out at Lilly so I found a different site)
The last (yes last) item I purchases was a second (yes second) Leighton Blazer. I love the pink one I received for Christmas so much that I decided I needed a second one, I was also in a bad mood this morning so I needed a little shopping therapy! I purchased this one in black, black is such a classic color and I am so glad that these were one of the items on sale! The blazer originates for $178 but I was able to purchase it for $79, that is a total savings of $99!
Now, I know it seems crazy the amount of things that I purchased between today and yesterday, but I tend not to look at the amount of money I spent, and try to focus on the amount of money I saved, that being said...I saved approximately $607, WOW that is amazing I cannot imagine how much money I would have spent if I bought all these items when they weren't on sale...crazy thought...bad thought...ok, thought gone! The next 3 weeks (waiting for my items to ship) will be a very LONG 3 weeks...I might get really impatient! Now, since one on my New Year's Resolutions was to spend money wiser this will be my last large purchase for myself until I feel I must absolutely purchase something (this will take a lot of discipline from my boyfriend...he always tells me no).
Now, the most important question...what did you purchase?
