Nothing that is obvious and apparent from my experiences there.

Thanks readosunnycoast, hoping to wear sandals on Saturday and don't want to be not admitted as they have the bit betwene the toes, which is considred thongs by Qantas.

Apart from saying "Smart, casual dress standards apply at all times" is there anymore specific dress codes for the Virgin Lounges?

I have a pair of sandals that have the bit between the toes, and in Qantas Lounge land, they are considered thongs and are not allowed.

Could I wear them in the Virgin Lounge?

I believe the rule is " smart casual attire". That being said I'm pretty sure I've been in the lounge with shorts, tshirt and thongs before as I've been going to the beach and it's been fine.

I don't think you'll have a problem, if you looks smart.  If you turned up with thongs and a ratty singlet then that may be a different story.

I wouldn't consider sandals "smart casual".

I should probably qualify that they are silver dress sandals, not beach sandals

Sounds like Eddie Redmayne has some serious competition here

Nobody wearing T-shirt, shorts and thongs ever looks "smart" and this is certainly not smart casual. You weren't "going to the beach". You were going into a Business class lounge and then on board a flight. Maybe you were going to the beach some hours down the track but I assume at the very least you would be checking into a hotel or motel beforehand, where you could change into your beachwear.
