zulily is fabulous! It's a new online store offering daily sales events on top-quality apparel, gear and other goodies for moms, babies and kids. We carry the best brands at the lowest prices. Members enjoy savings of up to 70% off retail prices. zulily loves to find deals on favorite styles, and we love introducing our members to exciting new brands, too.
It's like a ticket to an amazing sample sale. Only members can take advantage of zulily's low prices. Membership is free and signing up is fast and easy. Once you're a member, you'll be the first to know what we've got to offer every day.
We're not a traditional online store. Instead, we feature new items every day. We find great buys from lots of brandfs and work with them to ship you the goods. We don't keep stock in a warehouse. zulily events last 72 hours . . . then they're gone! New brands move in and get their three days on the site.
Each weekday, we offer at least five limited-time shopping events. Members receive a daily email revealing the latest events. From there, members (gleefully!) click to our site and shop. Members can also go straight to the site to shop every morning.
Every day is different, so if you're looking for something specific, check back often. Anything and everything for moms, babies, and kids will show up on zulily!
Tell your friends about zulily! They'll thank you for the tip on low-priced family shopping, and we'll thank you with a $10 credit. All you have to do is send an invite from our site. When your friend makes a purchase, we'll send your credit right away. $10 might buy you an adorable tee for your tyke! Or, perhaps a new puzzle? A pack of hair clips? You never know what you'll find on zulily.
