Lily For Target Launch Site Crashes #LilyForTarget

 

Lily Pulitzer for Target launched their new collaboration on Sunday morning with record online sales. The collaboration immediately trended with shoppers tweeting their favorite finds, but within minutes the site was reporting problems. Social Shoppers looking to score online finds were sadly disappointed to find out that they couldn’t check out their carts or that their favorite finds were sold out within minutes.

Lily For Target Online Shopping Experience

Some social shoppers reported that the site crashed several times. Other social shoppers tweeted their favorite finds within the store. Unfortunately, none of the items I wanted were available online and when I found an item I was unable to view the cart as I received an “Internal error 500” message, the worst thing that can happen when you are trying to purchase online. Eventually the Target website went completely offline.

Lily For Target In-Store Shopping Experience

The next morning I headed out to the local Target stores and sure enough EVERYTHING was sold out. As I headed out the door of the final store I found a yellow scarf that a customer discarded in the wrong aisle. Lucky me!

When I got home I checked online sites and found my favorites online for $200 instead of $20, $30 & $40 dollars. I wasn’t surprised and didn’t give in to buy marked up items. Instead I went to the real Lily Pulitzer website where I found all the comparable items on the site were actually affordable!

If you missed out on the sales don’t buy the marked up items, shop smart and go buy the real stuff.
