Lilly Warehouse sale

I just returned from the sale and goodness it was crazy! I thought fall was supposed to be a bit more tame!
We got tickets for this morning last night; I heard people had been camping out since Tuesday for a line number ticket; crazy!!! We got there around 5:15 and were out by 6:15! We were numbers 145 & 146; they said they were giving out 500 last night! (but only expecting 250 to show up).
Well, this morning at 6 I was glad we went yesterday! There were those with line numbers and then those without, and the line was so long for those without. So, we lined up at 6 upstairs and then they began taking groups downstairs to the other line outside of the sale. Well, I was a smidge perturbed since I was told yesterday by Lilly employees if we came later than 6:15 or so, we would lose our spot in line and our line number would be void! Well, lo-and-behold, from 6:15 until almost 7 people with line numbers were coming down and getting in line where their numbers were. I couldn't believe it! If I had known I could have moseyed down at the last second I could have slept in more!!
Well, anywho, we got into the sale around 7:10 and began shopping! I avoided the samples tables for the most part because those people are crazy! Grabbing and shoving and just throwing one of everything into their bags and carts. Its so rude and unladylike.
I got a bunch of great fall pieces from the past season but was bummed some that I had been eying were not there and others I already bought were. Win some, lose some I suppose.
I'm at work now, but when I get home, I will post pictures of my haul!!! I'm already wearing my Murfee Scarf in Catch of the Day Pink Toile.
Was anyone else there??? Did you get some great deals?



  1. I'm soooo jealous! I wish I could have left school and gone! I can't wait to see all of the great pieces you got!

  2. Love that scarf! I'm jealous that you were able to go, and can't wait to hear more about it! :)
