It’s been two weeks since the Lilly for Target launch. And I still remember my excitement thinking about all those Lilly for Target goodies. Reality hit me hard when I arrived eight minutes after the store had opened. All I saw were sad, empty racks and displays. Unfortunately, everything had flown off the shelves by 8:05 a.m. I learned two things about designer launches that day: fate does not reward laid-back shoppers, and shopping Lilly for Target is a full-on contact sport, not for the faint-hearted.

Let’s be real, though. Lilly for Target was nothing more than a glorified Lilly for Target pop up shop lasting only minutes! My neighbor aptly called it Lilly for EBay. Sadly, items were appearing on EBay within minutes of the launch going for three times the retail price–now that plain stinks! Some shoppers did have luck purchasing online, but who wants to wake up at 3:00 a.m. for a pink shift dress? Don’t answer that! Next time, I’ll be ready or maybe I’ll pass on all the shenanigans. It all depends on my mood. I mean it’s just stuff, right? Hmm, did I mention how much I love my cute pineapple dish?
