#LillyforTarget: The Day After Pink Sunday




Why the Lilly+Target collaboration was such a success and a failure. 

First off, I have to say that when it comes to getting quality items at an accessible price, Target never disappoints. For the past 19 years,Target has been my go-to place for the latest fashion trends without the big price tag. Anyone who knows me can tell you that I am all about some Target! So when Target decided to team with the oh so fabulous Lilly Pulitzer, I was not surprised that at 3:20 a.m. Target.com shut down during my attempt to check out with my coveted high waisted fans bikini and gold wedge espadrilles in my shopping cart #ohshift! Was I salty? Yes, I had been saving my Lilly cash for weeks now. But little by little, I came to the realization that a launch of this caliber could potentially be catastrophic for myself and millions of other Lilly lovers. And just when I thought all hope was lost, Target.com came back online (now 4:00 a.m.), and I was able to secure 3 of my wishlist items. 



Upstream Jumpsuit, White Fringe Kimono, and Upstream Swimsuit

 And since there were other items on my list, two hours later (6:03 a.m.), I found myself on the way to Target to wait for them to open at 8:00 a.m. I was number 9 in a line of close to 200 women (some boyfriends and husbands). Armed with my Redcard and my Lilly List, I was able to grab 4 items and a bonus item.


Fedora Nosie Posey|Upstream Scarf w/fringes| Chalis Romper/happy place| Nosie Posey Maxi Dress| 
Scarf with tassels 

  How was the event a failure? I think that because Target underestimated how much people love Target, and just how much people really love Lilly, and the demand was simply too high for the supply. On the other hand, Target was successful because they made this "American Fashion Award" winning collaboration happen, a collaboration that was highly anticipated by women of all colors, ages, sizes, and for that I am thankful!  Yes, there are some people who are "Lillyless" today, but the there is a silver lining because the real Target and Lilly lovers will return their items within the 14 day time frame, so from me to you,
"May the odds be forever in your favor!"


For those who are still puzzled about why this event was such a big deal, here's why!
Lilly for Target $34
Lilly for Lilly Pulitzer $148
It is my hope that more fashion collaborations happen, but let the supply match the demand or at least organize in a way that the ebayers are held at bay!

Until next time,

5 on Friday




What I Loved Most About This Week...

1. My Favorite Look: I went out to celebrate one of my favorite ladies for her birthday, and this was my outfit for the night. I love the white blazer (Target), my Steve Madden pumps (NordstromRack), and my pink clutch (Charming Charlie). 




2. My Favorite Find/Link www.shoes.com

Shoes.com has every style of shoe and 100's of brands you're looking for. Not only do they have free shipping and free returns, they have the PayMyWay option. So what that means for you is that you can pay for your shoes over the course of 3-12 months with your credit card. So my advice to you is to stock up on those sandals you've been eyeing in every color, and spread the payment.

Splendid Crete Sandal

3. Favorite Transformation Photos: 
Tamia got her hair done by a professional for the first time this week and WOW, what a difference. Thanks a million Toria of Hair Essentials for beautifying my princess!

Before: Wash and Go Hair


After: Shampoo and Blowout


4. Favorite Thought: I got this from my Oprah and Deepak 21-Day Meditation Experience, and it has really stuck with me. Got to love to be okay with being imperfect! Namaste.



5. Favorite Laugh:

I have loved  Sean Hayes since Will and Grace, and years later, he's still making me laugh. Get Ready for Trouble!




Well, I'm headed to Charlotte 49er Nation to visit my Big Girl! Can't wait to see her; we are so excited! What are your plans for the weekend?
