Finding Preppy Clothes For A Good Price

Although I love buying new clothes, they can be super expensive! I do have a job, but I also have to put my money towards car insurance and if I just need money for other things. Buying some of my clothes for full price can make me cringe because of how expensive they usually are, which is why I love whenever I find a good sale!

Since I love getting clothes for discounted prices, I thought I would put together a list on how to find preppy clothes for a reasonable price!

one // Ruelala
For any of you who don't know what Ruelala is, it's a website that has "sales" every day with certain topics, such as "dresses under $100," "shoes for $50 and under," etc. There is a Lilly Pulitzer sale on there every once in a while that offers the clothes for basically half-off! I've also seen Vineyard Vines and Brooks Brothers a couple of times. Ruelala is a members-only website, so if you don't have an account, I suggest you get one! You can sign up here:

two // Poshmark
Poshmark is an app that allows you to add your clothes that you no longer want to your "closet." People can buy them from you, and you can also buy things from other people! There are clothes that are new and clothes that are slightly used, but they are all offered at great prices. I've seen multiple Lilly, Vineyard Vines, and J. Crew pieces. You also need to be a member on Poshmark in order to buy items, so sign up ASAP!

three // store sales
Stores also usually offer sales at the end of a season, so it's a good idea to buy a lot and stock up for next year. Vineyard Vines and J. Crew also have "sale" pages, so check those out! Unfortunately, Lilly only offers two sales a year: at the end of August and at the beginning of the new year. However, these sales are always huge, so make sure to attend them when they happen so you can get some great deals!

four // eBay
A lot of people put up clothes on eBay. I personally don't think I would buy any clothes from eBay, but it's a really good site to check out if you want clothes or accessories! There are tons of items that you can usually get for a good price.

five // consignment stores
I've never been to a consignment store before, but I heard that you can sometimes find Lilly, Ralph Lauren, and Vineyard Vines there! If you have any consignment stores near you, you should check them out. I also love to go to the Marshall's and TJ Maxx near me because they have a good amount of Polo Ralph Lauren clothes that I love to buy.

six // "ReLilly" Facebook Groups
I'm not a part of one, but some of my blogger friends have told me about "ReLilly" Facebook groups where a bunch of girls post Lilly clothes that no longer fit them/they no longer want and sell them for good prices. I assume other brands are in there too, so search for one (or a few!) on Facebook and join them!

I hope this helped any of you who are always looking to save money like me! Let me know if you have any other ideas that I missed.

How do you get preppy clothes for a good price?


  1. I just bought a Lilly dress from a consignment store! I was so happy to get it for only $25!!! :)

    Love Always,

  2. Also on my Instagram where I'm selling some of my clothes! :) @preppylovescloset

  3. Great post! Sometimes I feel that bloggers encourage each other to always buy new, expensive pieces, but buying sale or gently used items can be just as nice!
