Poshmark Party Hosting Tips

And now I’ve finally co-hosted my first Poshmark Party!

Click here to see my 100 posted Host Picks I posted!

Co-hosting was a great experience. I discovered some really amazing closets and even more amazing people in the Poshmark Community.

The Party is 2 hours long and time flies by. You have to be organized if you want to post all your picks so I am very happy that I took the time to have a party-plan.

Fifty to one-hundred Host Picks are allowed. I would aim to post all one-hundred because there are thousands of amazing closets and items out there that should be showcased.

From reading various blogs and going through the process myself, I’ve collected my best tips so when you host, it will be a smashing success!!!

BEFORE THE PARTY

  • Clean up your closet – it will be highly visible
    • Best items near the top
    • Make a party listing with fun photos
      • Have it showcase the theme of the party and when it will be
      • This builds excitement and is a place for Poshers to comment, like & share
  • Use other social media platforms to promote (Insta/Blogs/Twitter/FB/Snap etc)
  • Find ~ 70-80% of your party picks before the day of the party
    • How you find them is up to you – PFFs, requests, your own searches for items you like that would best fit the theme of the party
  • Check that your picks come from Posh Compliant closets – time consuming, but important
  • Organize your potential party picks on a hidden Pinterest boards
    • Make boards called ‘Possible HPs’, ‘Definite HPs’, ‘Backup HPs
      • You will need Backup HPs – I guarantee – listings you have chosen do sell, become unavailable, or the user might suddenly start selling perfume (a banned item)
    • Make another hidden Pinterest board called ‘Posted HPs’ for during the party

 

DURING THE PARTY

  • Use at least 2 devices – e.g. computer and phone
    • I used my laptop to view the party room and pin my picks to my ‘Posted HPs’ Pinterest board
    • I used my phone to comment & share items to the party
  • Watch the clock!
    • If you want to post 100 picks, you have to aim for 25 posts per half hour.
      • Organize your breaks accordingly
      • This time will go by quickly – you will want to look at the Host Pick board, look at comments people are writing you, check last minute things about your picks – so allow for this in your time management plan
  • Keep track of what you post to the party by pinning to to a ‘Posted HPs’ Pinterest board
  •  Write a note under comments for each item you pick before you post it so the owner of the item knows that it is you who made the Host Pick
    • Pre-write the note, copy it, and paste it for each pick to save time
    • Share the item to the party right after you drop the comment/note
    • You will have time after the party to write personal comments to people if you like, but time is tight during the party
  • Decide if you want to make some spontaneous Host Picks during the party itself
    • You will get hundreds of notifications and comments from people suggesting their closets or items
    • If you are organized enough, it is fun to consider some of these for last minute picks – makes it very exciting for the active Poshmark users following the party feed!
  • Think about the order in which you post items to the party
    • What is posted later shows up first in the Host Pick gallery
    • Post your favorite items and your own items if you choose near the end of the party for visibility
    • Yes, you are allowed to post 5-10 of your own items and it is encouraged that you do so – especially if you need the exposure!

 

AFTER THE PARTY

  • Thank everyone, respond to notes, bookmark new closets you have discovered, relax!

 

I hope this is helpful!

My Pinterest Lust List

I like ‘window shopping’ on the web and have collected my likes in my Pinterest Lust List. It is a great way to bookmark cute things.

It is interesting to scroll through the Lust List and get a sense of my own taste. So far, I’ve concluded that I have quite a diverse style! From military-inspired to girly girl & everything from elegant to even gothic.

 

It has been a style self-discovery.

 

I encourage all of you to do this!

I am co-hosting my first Poshmark Party & looking for Host Picks from Posh compliant closets! The party will be Friday, Feb 9th, 2018 at 7pm PST. The theme is still to be announced. 

 

Comment, like & share HERE for your chance at being a Host Pick!

 

Poshmark has been great these days. They are so responsive with anything customer service related. It is wonderful to be part of such an awesome community.

 

I had totally forgotten that I applied to co-host a Posh Party ages ago. Getting the invite email from Poshmark was a very nice surprise. This will be my first Party so I have been looking for tips and suggestions.

 

A great blogger of The Gray Asparagus has written numerous posts about Poshmark. Here is a particular post about Posh Party Hosting that I’ve been looking at.

Here are some more Posh Party hosting tips from the Poshmark Blog itself.

My Complete Lilly Pulitzer January APS 2018 Haul!!!

Fashion

FullSizeRender 2

I scored all of these amazing items during the Lilly Pulitzer January 2018 After Party Sale!

Most items were from the Lilly Pulitzer site itself, but I did score some from The Pink Crab as well as The Navy Knot! These amazing stores had even more items on sale.

 

The Skipper Popover with that super cute Alpaca Print (that you can clearly tell I am in love with…) was on markdown at The Pink Crab! And the Desert Palm Stripe popover and Amal Sweater was on sale at The Navy Knot!!!

 

The Getaway Tote with the cute seahorses was a total quick-grab since it sold out just after I bought it. Same with the Heather Grey Popover.

 

So overall, the theme to my massive haul has been Alpacas and Popovers!

 

Totally can’t wait to start getting these items in the mail and wearing them out and about. The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale was a big hit yet again. And yet again, I am broke!!!

Lilly Pulitzer x S’well Part II!!!

Fashion, Other

Lilly Pulitzer has partnered with S’well yet again for another awesome co-lab! This time, bottles were available online this morning at 8am EST. They will also be available in Lilly stores when they open at 9am (a little early for this fun release!).

 

All the bottles are sold out now, and it is 8:20am. Can you believe it?! That was fast! I think after only 5-10 minutes, some styles were completely gone.

 

To get into the webpage, Lilly Pulitzer set up the popular internet waiting room Queue-it. I set my alarms and opened a few browser windows on my phone and computer. Bam! I was in! It was exciting. From previous experiences with Queue-it and these limited edition releases, you have to act fast! Put the things you want in the cart and check out ASAP.

 

I am beyond thrilled to have gotten all three bottles! An early Christmas present to myself!

 

Did any of you guys get your hands on the bottles too???

Lilly Pulitzer APS Haul

My August 2018 Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale Haul!

 

The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale is exciting and this August 2017 sale was one of the best. All the items have not yet arrived – it can take a few weeks since they get so many orders – but they have started to slowly trickle in. I can’t wait!

 

I am especially happy that I scored the Kimi top in Going Coastal – this is from a little while ago, but it resurfaced during this August’s APS and I snatched it up in my size before it was gone! Going Coastal is one of my fav prints.

The Kimi Top

Another item I had my eye on was the Courtney dress. I had tried it on a few times in the store and loved the fact that it has built in cups.

The Courtney Dress

The APS is an event that really is not to be missed. The discount is always just so amazing. I am already building my wish list for the January 2018 APS!

 

Did any of you shop the APS this August? What did you buy?

Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale August 2017!

One of the most exciting events of the year is here! This year, the APS is three days long. I swore that I would not buy anything Lilly for a while, but when the sale was announced, I couldn’t stop myself. Since it is going on for three full days, there are new additions to the sale periodically – this is keeping me coming back!

 

My first haul is pictured below:

I have had a few more mini-hauls since then as items I really wanted suddenly appeared – in my size! – but I’ll post more when they arrive…

 

To all of you shopping the sale – have NO shame when the FedEx person delivers multiple boxes to you… And enjoy all the bargain finds! I really love the Lilly APS!

It has been a LOOONG time since I’ve posted anything on this blog! Hey, there’s been a lot going on :). We all say that!

 

ANYWAY, although things are always changing, they are pretty much always the same – I am still a Lilly Pulitzer addict and the above picture is from my latest retail-therapy splurge. You only live once so why not spend your money while you can!

 

Until next time…
