Hey y’all! Hope you all were able to survive the Lilly for Target launch this weekend. It was pure craziness (at least over here in Style On Target land)! I stayed up until 1:15am (which is remarkably late for me) on Sunday morning and managed to score the gold wedges (here) and the two flounce dresses (giraffe print and the sea urchin print) after some serious internet sleuthing (thanks to Twitter and Google).
I wasn’t able to score the other two items I thought I wanted: the navy shift dress or the coffee mugs. However, I’m not complaining, because I know a lot of people ended up with nothing, which is so disheartening after waiting so long for the collection to come. I grabbed my coffee early in the morning on Sunday and got to my local store right at 7:30am. I was probably 15th in line, but a couple of the women in front of me where just there for the kid clothes. Target tried to handle it as best as they could, with a manager announcing the limits on dresses and the store layout (“look for the ceiling flamingos”), but it was pure madness at my store (and apparently online after I went to bed). You can see the two items I was able to try on here on Instagram, but the size I wanted in the shift was snagged by someone right before I got to the rack. Oh well!
It seemed some stores were more chaotic than others and that Target had really poorly planned the amounts of the items at each store. The Indy store each received one set of the stackable coffee cups, which seemed like a very popular item, and the store I went to had just one size of every shift dress. I definitely think with all the publicity of the campaign and general popularity of Lilly (their own website crashes every year during their super sale, I’m told) that there should have been more inventory.
Were you all able to score anything? If not, be sure to watch Target.com and your local Target store. The return policy is within 14-days for the Lilly for Target items, so there’s bound to be some returns to be found! Fingers crossed for you all!
And if you didn’t score any Lilly, but still want to buy something from Target, this shuttlecock print blouse of mine is super cute and preppy, and there’s an extra 25% if you buy 3 or more clothing items this week from Target.com. So, a silver lining, at least?
