Why I Love Zulily

I buy a lot of clothes for my kids online. I find that I can often get great deals and I love that the clothes are not run of the mill/what every kid is wearing.

One of my favorite sites for buying kids clothes online is Zulily.I have shopped there for a couple years and am so impressed by the products they offer.

Here are 5 reasons why I LOVE Zulily.

1. The deals are awesome: I have seen deals up to 90% off retail. You can save so much money on really quality, adorable stuff!

2. The clothes are SO cute – especially the girls stuff. Oh my word. I love how the clothes are often boutique quality, but at a price I can afford. Adeline gets compliments on her Zulily outfits every time she wears them. (Elias was at a birthday party this weekend and the little girl looked SO cute. When I asked the mom where her otfit was from, she said Zulily. Immediately all the moms started talking about how cute the clothes offered on Zulily always are – ha!)

3. It’s more than kids clothes! I buy a lot from Zulily for me and have been so happy with my purchases. Some of my favorite items in my wardrobe are from Zulily. In addition to clothes, they also regularly offer shoes, home decor, household products, home decor and gift items – all at great prices. It’s like shopping TJ MAXX online.

4. The diversity of brands: Zulily offers many deals every day from a wide variety of vendors. I love being introduced to companies I have never heard of. This wide diversity also means a huge array of styles – casual, dressy, licensed, etc.

5. You can earn credits – that’s right. When you refer new people to Zulily and they make a purchase, you earn credit to shop on Zulily. It’s a win – win!

So if you have never shopped on Zulily before, I encourage you to check them out. I think you will be so happy you did.

Do you shop on Zulily? If so, what do you love?

I LOVE Zulily, too! I always have something in my basket– can’t always fit it into the budget, but I can dream!! I bought a lot of vacation clothes this year- including swimming suits, dresses, and shoes! I have been disappointed just 1-2 times with my purchases, but I know that my disappointments are outweighed by all the great things I have gotten! I live over an hour from a mall and (gasp!) Target, so it’s been a lifesaver for trying to get good deals on things we need! I also use Totsy, though not as often, because they do not ship very quickly. — One more thing about both sites, don’t forget to search online for a coupon before you check out! I always save this way, too! Many times there is at least a 10% off on Zulily or free shipping! Every little bit helps!

Great points about looking for a coupon! I haven’t found Totsy to be much quicker than Zulily, but I think it depends on the products. I bought lots of vacation clothes from Zulily this year. I just love their stuff! Also, I would not be able to live an hour away from a Target. I think I would die. :)

I have shopped on Zulily a few times in the past but unless I can get an incredible deal on something I literally can’t find anywhere else, I don’t think I will again. First of all, I think their shipping is very expensive. Second, the last two times I’ve purchased, my items took OVER 30 DAYS to get to me. In this day and age, I think that is unacceptable. When I order from Amazon, they usually tell me it will be 5-8 days but I end up getting it in 3-5. The deals aren’t good enough for me to want to wait a month for my merchandise. (while they have my money for a month, mind you).

Hi Heidi! Couple things – Their shipping is pretty comparable to most boutique sites (usually $7.95).

Also, whenever possible, I shop there on the weekend because then you get free shipping for the whole weekend.

Regarding the time delay, this is true for most sites like Zulily (ie: Totsy, One Kings Lane, Bitsy Bug, etc.). This is why: the sites sell the products at deep discount from various companies, the companies then send the products to Zulily (or whatever flash site you are ordering from) and then the products are sent to the buyer. So, yes, you do have to be patient, but I have found that the products are really worth it.

Hope this helps!

Another great thing about Zulily’s shipping is that once you order during a day, your shipping is free the rest of the day… you can really make the most of this if you order before an event ends and then again later in the day after other events have opened. :) They also offer this deal sometimes during the weekend when all your orders will only be the one time s/h charge for the whole 3-4 day weekend!

yep – if you order on a friday, you get free shipping til Sunday!

I’ve purchased several things on Zulily too. The only thing I really don’t like about them is that the shipping time seems to take forever!!! If they could fix that – I’d probably do a little more spending.
