Lilly For Target.
What an experience! I’m in utter shock over the outrage the release has caused. As someone who deals with the Lilly sale every year, I’m totally used to the website crashing and missing my must-haves, so I wasn’t too upset about that. However, what happened at my local store was nuts. I showed up at 7:45 (The Boy was running late!), and I wasn’t very far back in the line, but there were no clothes left by the time I got in. I meandered over to that area, found one shirt, started to pick it up, and another lady grabbed it from my hands. Insane.
So while everyone hit the bags next, I walked to the home section. Hoards of women started running past me. Everything was gone. Thankfully, while they were checking out, the (very patient!) Target employees brought out another box, so I was able to score the blanket and mugs before the girls came running back. There were women waiting outside of the dressing rooms hoping people would change their minds. Yikes.
Overall, I’m very pleased with what I did manage to score from the internet and store. The home items I got – the mugs, cocktail glasses, the basket, and the blanket – are great, and they came just in time for the new place. So far, two of my dresses have arrived. Target’s sizing is a bit different than Lilly’s, so I ordered 2s instead of 0s, but the fit is almost identical. And, not to rub it in for those who didn’t find dresses, I’m seriously impressed with the quality. I purchased a shirt from the Jason Wu collection, and it split at the seams after one wear. It was a loose-fitting blouse, so certainly not an issue of being too tight.
I hope that all of you were just as lucky! And if you scored the napkins and/or hammock and decide to sell it, please let me know 🙂
