Strawberry Picking at Mercier Orchards | Simple OOTD

Strawberry Picking | Simple OOTD

My mom drove up to visit for Memorial Day. We went to a Braves game, had a great brunch in Kirkwood and worked on my apartment… but the highlight of the trip definitely was strawberry picking at Mercier Orchards.

If you remember the last time she visited, we road tripped up to Blue Ridge (about an hour and half drive) to go apple picking at Mercier. Apple picking was fun but strawberry picking was even better. The weather was gorgeous. We went on a weekday so it wasn’t crowded and we took our time sampling the two varieties of berries, picking the best ones on the vine. It’s $10 per person (with a special deal for the kiddos) and you get a gallon bucket to fill to your heart’s content. We definitely got out money’s worth. I have strawberries in every nook and cranny of my fridge and freezer!

When we were in the field, I did get a few pictures before I splattered strawberry juice all over my white t-shirt. Note to self, do NOT wear white while strawberry picking. It’s just a recipe for disaster. At least my Lilly scarf covered it up pretty well. 😛

Lilly Pulitzer for Target

Is it April 19th, yet? The Lilly Pulitzer for Target lookbook has gotten me even more excited for this collab, if that’s even possible. 

// All Pictures are from Lilly Pulitzer x Target

I love everything. I’m still a little hesitant about quality but the prices are too good to pass up! I’ve started to create my wish list. The top item is the blue and white pom pom shorts. I dont think they will look good on me but I don’t care. I NEED those shorts. I also am obsessed with all of the print dresses and the romper.  Those printed coffee mugs are also a must-have for my coffee nook. I need to whittle this list down a little bit, well– a lot, but I’ll be staking out my Target on April 19th to get some of the fabulousness!

After Party Sale Haul

Last daySource: Lilly Pulitzer

This is it. Today is the last day for the After Party Sale. I ended up with some great stuff during this year’s sale and there’s still lots of goodies on the Lilly website.

Here’s what I got during the After Party Sale!

mai tai scarf

Murfee Scarf in Mai Tai $118 $29

I LOVE this print and it’s been my iPad background since it came out. I’m excited to finally have a piece in this print. In my experience, scarves always sell out first. So I checked the scarves right at 8 to snag this. I think it sold out within the hour. PS this also came today. Talk about fast shipping!

phone case

Lilly iPhone 5s Case in Resort White Coastal Patch $32 $9

I’ve been rocking the same Kate Spade silicon case I found at Norstrom Rack since I got my new phone last winter. I was looking for a new case to change it up and this one was too cute to pass up. The Lilly cases have drastically upgraded their quality from the earlier cases so I’m excited to get this in the mail.

leigh trouser

Leigh Trouser in Navy $168 $39

I’ve been looking for some navy pants for work and I thought these were a good deal. I haven’t bought trousers from Lilly so hopefully the fit and quality are there. I think these will be a great piece for Fall/Winter.

beach sweater 2

Marielle Sweater in Watermelon $98 $29

This is another piece I wanted to take me into Fall/Winter for work. I’ve been wanting this sweater since it came out last Christmas so I’m excited for it to arrive! I’m a little nervous about this one shipping. I bought the pants and this in the same order and the pants shipped but this hasn’t yet. Cross your fingers this isnt sold out!

boarding bag

Boarding Bag in Navy $198 $49

This was a last minute impulse buy. Last Christmas, I almost bought the Mai Tai version with my Christmas money. The Mai Tai sold out by the time I say it but I’m glad I got the navy instead. I know this will be a great purchase and work well for travel. I also bought a little green makeup bag for $9 with this order. I think the two will work well together.

Bonus Tip

After the sale is over, be on the lookout for Rue La La sales. Every time Lilly has a sale like this, they usually have a Rue La La sale the week after.

 

Did you buy anything from the sale?

How to Shop the Lilly Pulitzer Online Sale

Tips for shopping Lilly Pulitzer online sale | www.flonmymind.com

It’s coming… The Lilly Pulitzer New Year Cheer Sale starts tomorrow at 8 a.m. sharp.

If you’ve ever shopped a Lilly sale before, you know the online sales brings out the pink and green crazy in people. For a couple years now, the Lilly website has shut down and it cause people to lose items in their cart. The brand normally shuts down their site and they have it running by the afternoon. These server glitches bring out the nasty in people and they complain everywhere (not gonna lie, I’ve sent a fun angry tweets too).

Hopefully this year they FINALLY have the computer problems worked out. Lilly Pulitzer has a great New Year Cheer Sale FAQ on their website but these are my tips to get the best Lilly deals tomorrow.

P.S. If you want to see my haul from last year, click here

Lilly Pulitzer Online Sale Tips

– Pre-load your credit card information. This makes your checkout easier. Lilly offers free shopping so checking out often ensures you get the item. Check out their FAQ for more information about this one.

– Be online at 7:59 a.m. Stuff sells out fast and this is the only way to get everything you want. I’ve seen stuff sell out in under a minute. This is the only way to get the best deals.

– Check out every time you find something you want. If you pre-loaded your info this won’t take too long. You are not “guaranteed” an item if it’s in your online tote which means YOU ONLY GET THE ITEM IF YOU GO THROUGH CHECKOUT. Lilly offers free shipping so check out with each item to make sure it doesn’t sell out while sitting in your online tote.

– Check the scarves, accessories and shoes first. The scarves and shoes are ALWAYS the first to sell out. If you have a murphee on your wishlist go to that section first. I’ve seen murphees as low as $19 or $29. I’ve seen shoes (especially wedges) go quickly too.

– Check the Signature Stores to look through their deals. All of Lilly’s Signature Stores (i.e. your local Lilly store)  will be participating too. Check out the Re-Lilly Facebook page to get the scoop on Signature Stores.

– It’s Final Sale but don’t let that stop you. Sure it’s final sale but you can use Re-Lilly to sell an item if it doesn’t fit. You can also check the page to look for items that sold out before you could buy them.

– Check Rue La La in the next few weeks for Lilly. Lilly Pulitzer is on Rue La La a lot. After the last sale, I saw Lilly on Rue and there were a lot of the same items. Some were pricier but most were cheaper. Don’t have a Rue La La account? Sign up via my referral code. I’d love you forever!

– Chill out, it’s just clothes. If we get the “oh shift we broke the internet” message again just take a breather and get some actual work done. It’s just clothes. If you don’t get everything you wanted it just means it wasn’t meant to be.

Fashion Steals

I have been seeing some super good deals on the interwebs this week that I wanted to share!

J.Crew Factory is having a 50% off everything sale right now! Including their new arrivals. Now would be the perfect time to stock up on some colder weather gear.

I’m obsessed with these boots and they are not bad at $84 for suede. But alas, I’m only window shopping this week. J.Crew Factory’s sale ends on Monday.

Vineyard Vines is having an extra 30% off sale when you use the promo code “OCTOBER”. With the code, you can snag some solid colored VV shorts for only $20!

They also have some great brightly colored work pants and some other cute things. Everything on VV is more summery but if you live in Florida/the south you can probably get away with it for a little while longer. Or, just stock up for next summer! Vineyard Vine’s sale ends on Monday as well!

Fashion bonus: Ann Taylor LOFT is having an extra 50% off sale styles and 50% off some full-price stuff. Check it out if you’re need of work staples!

Have you seen any other fashion deals this week? Let me know in the comments!

A Room Tour!

I dropped by WordPress and it said it’s my one year anniversary since registering on the site! Wow! Time sure does fly! Just think of how many posts I could have written if I didn’t give up so easily in the beginning.

Anyway, I feel like this past weekend was my version of Spring Cleaning. Everything still looks so good (haft to say I’m proud). When I was cleaning my bedroom this weekend I took some pics to share with y’all. One of my favorite things to watch on YouTube is room tours so I thought this would be a neat post.

I love my bedroom. I think its a perfect mix of color and coastal. It really makes me think of home. These pictures (just taken on my little point and shoot) are the best ones from my mini clean room photo shoot.
