I’ve found that there’s always a little bit of a coming down period after celebrations and parties. There’s the warm feeling of happiness from newly made memories mixed with a melancholy emptiness because it’s over.
This is how I feel when the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale ends.
This “coming down” period, however, is nothing compared to the anxious, annoyed, desperate yearning that soon takes hold as you wait for your order to arrive. Shoppers are told up front that the wait could be as long as 4-6 weeks, but you’re not thinking about that while you’re shopping! While you load your suitcase (LP’s version of a cart) all you can think about is getting what you want in your size before some other Lilly-wearing beyotch virtually steals it from you.
No, it’s not until your order is confirmed, and you’ve concocted your plan for explaining the astronomical charge to your husband, that you have the realization. You might have to wait 4-6 weeks?!?! Oh, the horror!!!
Y’all, every day when I check my mail I have butterflies in my stomach and unintentionally hold my breath as I open the mailbox hoping to see that beautiful hot pink package. Are any of you feeling the way I’m feeling right now?
Were you able to snag all of the things you wanted? I shopped in-store early, but also online. Here’s a sneak peak at some of my scores!
I just love Lilly! Everything is so happy! Today I leave you with some words of wisdom from the queen, herself.
P.S. I hope your happy mail arrives soon!
