Sister and I, along with a crew of other ladies I know, were up at 1AM eastern to shop the online sale. I have to be honest, I was not shocked at all by the way it went down. If you are a Lilly lover, you probably shop their after party sale a couple of times a year and have experienced the very same thing – carts emptying, sites crashing, inability to check out, etc… Sister and I had each other on speaker phone and chatted it up while we refreshed our browsers for hours on end. I mean, we legit went straight from 1AM to 4:45AM! But, our persistence paid off and, once the confirmation emails started coming in, we were giddy to see that we scored some of our must haves – the giraffeeey palazzo pants, the nosie posey button down, two lawn chairs, a floor cushion, pillows and a few other things!
As soon as I hung up with Sister I headed out the door to meet besties M and P, and a few other gals, at Target. We were the first in line at 5AM. It was a long three hours until the doors flew open, but it was nothing but fun and girl talk! M even managed to score some of her must haves on the ipad while we waited. We also memorized each other’s top one or two must haves so that we could divide and conquer.
Honey’s mama was so sweet to get up at the crack of dawn to come watch the boys so that he could even help me shop. You gotta go into these things with a plan! Our location had a four item limit on clothing – as in you could only purchase four things… not four of one style – but home goods were a free for all. Those were definitely my priority since you can’t ever get them! I had more to start with in my buggy but traded my besties poofs and pillows for rompers and maxis. I mean – HOW FUN!!!!! It was really the highlight of the whole event for me, and since so many of us got different things, we know we can always borrow that set of napkins or loan the darling cocktail plates when any of us have a soiree.
Every one in our party… and many, many more at our store walked away with Lilly for Target. I realize it was a stressful and frustrating experience for lots, but don’t give up yet! There is only a 14 day return window on these items and I do think stuff will make its way back to stores in the coming days.
With that, I’m counting down the minutes till bedtime. I’m afraid it will take me a week to recover from my Pink Sunday all nighter! Let me know what y’all got!!!!
