Since we had such an interest and we received a few current tips from several Smarty readers, I decided to check out shipment #2 (or possibly #3) at Costco on Tyvola Road. As of 5pm on Sunday (yesterday), there was a new mother load of Lilly dresses in all different patterns from size 2T and up. And I will admit, the pink pattern available right now at the Tyvola store is cuter than the one pictured here. It has a seahorse on it – I’m all about sea creatures big and small, thus my love of Lilly:-) Based on the discussions from our post on 3/30 (below), we can safely assume that this shipment arrived at the Matthews location as well. I also did a little Smarty investigating and found the same Costco Lilly dresses on eBay across the country in Tennessee, Texas, South Carolina and Florida. So I’m pretty sure these were sent to Costcos everywhere. So, if you missed the first batch, head on over to your closest Costco – I bet you’ll find a good deal for the bargain price of $23.99.
Happy shopping and remember to keep everyone updated in the comments section! -Jen P.

I get super excited about Smarty Scoop like this! Costco gets a shipment of Lilly Pulitzer dresses once a year for the spring/summer line and they have arrived – woohoo! See attached photos of three different styles that are available at Costco on Tyvola Road right now. They are only $23.99 and they retail for $68 in stores. Remember my ebay tip – if you time it right, you can get at least $35 for these dresses, used on eBay. So stock up ladies! I went at 10am this morning right when Costco opened and I saw another Smarty mom who heard about the Lilly deal. There were still many sizes and styles available from 3T all the way to girls size 8. If you think you MIGHT be interested, I would recommend you go right now because these dresses fly out of Costco. Also, I noticed that there are sometimes boxes underneath the table so make sure you check there too.
If you ever run into a bargain like this and you just feel like you have to share (isn’t that the true fun of finding a good deal – sharing with your friends?!), please email us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to let everyone in on the fun:-) Thanks to my good bud, Shannon M. for filling us all in. Good luck and happy shopping from CSP!
Update as of 5:00pm Sunday – they are out of 2T & 3T. This brings up a great point. We’d love for you to post updates in the comments section so we minimize wasted trips due to unavailable sizes. Remember, these sell out in just a few days! Jen P.
Update as of 4/9/08: Smarty Reader just tipped us that there is a NEW stock of Lilly dresses at the Tyvola location – 2T and up:-)
