Lilly Warehouse Sale Help!

Well, I've never been to the famous Lilly Sale. I was asked by a co-worker today if I was going and I was unsure. I'm positive most of you guys HAVE been, and I was wondering what the usual protocol was.

1. When do you get there?
2. What's the difference between the days?
3. Do they have better sales each day?
4. If the stuff the real thing?
5. Do you stay overnight somewhere?
6. Do I have to be "invited" per se?
7. Any advice?

I've heard so many good things about the sale, but I'm hoping that  you all can help me out! Thank you!

I've never been, so I have no helpful advice- but it sounds like it would be so much fun! Good luck figuring it out! :)

I have not been (one of these days I will go). It would be so fun to go! Can't wait to hear what you decide

Ladies! I am dying to go, Katie, let me know if you decide to make the trip! I am planning on going but I would love a "Tour Guide" HAHA! I heard day 1 is the best, otherwise it gets picked over, but then again I heard that they replenish and bring out new items to keep people coming back. Keep in touch girly and let me know what you decide to do! xxoxoxo

I have been. Definitely best selection on the first morning. Most diehards camp out the day before and sleep in line :) You can also get a hotel room in the convention center.

I went this year for the first time. If you are looking for a true bargain, score the sample racks. I got a prototype of a dress that was never made for $10! You do not have to be invited, and you are not required to spend the night but you can choose to stay at the convention center. Usually, each sale they do a different "thing." For the last sale it was that no items were over $100. For the one before it, on the final days, shoes and polos were buy 1, get 1 free. Depending on what promotion they do this year, you can see what days are better to go. For the sample rack, it is better to go in the beginning as that stuff tends to go quickly!

Are you talking about the one in KOP PA? I am headed to that one in June and I was wondering the same thing. It opens at 5am on the first day?!! Do I really have to get there then?
