Anthropologie Extra 20% off Sale – My Picks

It’s Anthropologie Summer Sale Time! Today is the last day to use promo code “saleaway” for an added 20% off all markdowns. There is a dress that I have been stalking at Anthropologie for a few weeks now but the $169 price tag gave me pause. It was one of those times where I added it to ‘my cart’ several times, saw the total and still didn’t buy. Even when it went on sale once, I still didn’t pull the trigger. My waiting paid off! Anthropologie is having their big summer mark down prices. It brought my coveted dress down from $169 to $39!!! And they keep torturing me by adding more dresses. Every time I went back writing this blog to insert links and images, there would be more cute dresses. So now I have a few more bookmarked to replace the one I had been waiting….lol…so it goes.

So here is my coveted dress – The Inkdrop Midi – lots of sizes left and such a steal!

How to Score the Items You Most Want from Lilly Pulitzer

We’ve waited patiently for months and the time is here! We are mere hours away from The Lilly Pulitzer for Target launch. But how do you score those items you most covet? Here is a game plan to help you nab those must have items before they sell out.

1. If you are planning a large haul of LP (meaning you nearly want every piece) then I suggest both online AND in-store shopping. Insiders are saying it will launch online sometime between midnight and 2am central time. Stores open at 8:00am and EVERY Target WILL have LP but they will not have all pieces.

2. If you’re only doing in-store shopping then get up early and check online the pieces you most want because then you can check to see what Target will have those items by clicking the “check in store” button. Once it launches online that function will be available. Because even though all Targets will have LP, you don’t want to show up hoping for a maxi and wind up with some bobby pins.

3. If you’re shopping online, go ahead and sign in, grab a glass of wine and wait patiently for the collection to launch. When I say “Sign in” I mean actually sign in to your Target.com account. Don’t have one? Then sign up beforehand, make sure your address is current, your credit card is saved and you’re ready to go.

4. Shopping online – narrow down your MUST HAVE pieces and write them down beforehand so you can go directly to them, put them in your basket and purchase. Go back for the second round of purchases or three or four, but don’t have them sit in your cart only to disappear as soon as you’re ready to checkout because you’re still casually cruising the collection. Cruise the collection now and get ready to be quick.

5. LP for Target is supposed to be available until May 31st but we all know it will be gone quick.

6. Stores open at 8am but I suggest being there an hour before to get the items you want the most. Please be aware that unlike previous launches, all the items will not be lumped together but spread throughout the store in their appropriate area. So if you want the hammock then you should be in the outdoor section.

7. Plus Sizes will be online only.

8. Online shoppers will be limited to five of any one item.

Good luck! Have fun! And I hope you score your most coveted Lilly Pulitzer items!
