Demand for Pulitzer designs swamps local Target stores Live
Jessica Bock took this picture at the Hampton Village Target store on Sunday morning.
Target stores - and the company's website - were swamped Sunday morning as crowds tried to snap up designs from the Lilly Pulitzer line of clothes, shoes and accessories.
Target's website was having issues this morning, and many items were sold out online - and after stores opened, more items quickly sold out, reported the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. The newspaper reported that Target has no plans today to restock items for online purchases.
Tweets from across the country documented the excitement.
These are from St. Louis.
Got to @target 40 minutes before opening to find this line ahead of me lillyfortarget… https://t.co/yFjXOzhsCV
Ian Mackie was at the Brentwood Target store.
Lilly Pulitzer isn't sold out in Belleville. Not sure which Target, but Mom has 6 beach towels in her cart.
And the disappointment:
Brentwood Target took 4 minutes to clear the women's racks #LillyforTarget
Good grief, that was insanity! #LillyPulitzer #LillyForTarget @ Target Town & Country https://t.co/nVagGmFkBp
Thanks @Target for having no Lilly inventory. You had enough for two people
How could @Target be so unprepared for @lillypulitzer event? All inventory at multiple store gone in 16 mins. #Fail #LillyforTarget
.@Target needs to realize this #LillyForTarget opportunity quickly turned into crisis. Quick response will be key. Millions waiting.
Well, it was a lil busy in Ready to wear this morning! @LillyPulitzer @Target http://t.co/DyyT1C9v8J
