They come from far and wide, bringing flawless tans and 5 carat princess cut rings. No, I’m not talking about the Oscars or the Emmys. I’m talking about the semi-annual Lily Pulitzer Annual Warehouse Sale (June 15-18th, 2005). The warehouse sale, held twice a year in Valley Forge, PA, draws fans from as far away as Japan.

Lilly Pulitzer June 2005 Warehouse Sale Details

Fashionistas thinking about heading to this sale beware! First, the warehouse sale is held at the Valley Forge Convention, which looks like it was THE place to be seen . . . in 1972. Second, you will have to wait in line forever—they only let like three people in at a time. Third, fellow shoppers can get vicious. At the sale last year, I discovered a box of black cardigans. As I joyfully went through the box, another shopper decided that she would just nudge me out of the way so that she could have the box all to herself. Of course, I gently pushed her back to her box of bright pink tennis skirts and went along my merry shopping way. She called over her posse, members of the local mommy group, who proceeded to use tactics learned from the mean playgrounds of suburban Pennsylvania to remove me from my spot in front of the box. I tried to use my core strength from Pilates, but there isn’t enough integration in the world to combat a group of determined suburban moms. They’ve been through childbirth, dance recitals, and carpools—they have strength that the childless could never imagine.
