Lilly Pulitizer Options - Nordstrom & Lilly Pulitzer Online


"Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning." 

- Bill Gates

 
 
 
    
 

The Lilly Pulitzer for Target collaboration was obviously a profitable public relations stunt for both companies.  The line sold out unbelievably within hours or it seemed in just minutes at Target on the launch date April 19, 2015. Additionally, Target will not replenish stock for the fashionistas who waited eagerly in line at stores for a pretty Lilly creation. The Lilly Pulitzer for Target debacle both online (all sold out on the West Coast by 8:00 a.m.) flourished on social media yesterday and made news on The Today Show Monday morning. To further create dissent and injustice some shoppers loaded up carts only to place the items on EBay for sale (9400 items).  As a former career person at a major tech company who understands the "launch" process of a product, it would have been wise to perhaps select certain items that would have enough stock on hand for the buyers rather than leaving the customer frustrated and empty handed. In light of the shock and disappointment, it is my obligation as a fashion writer to point readers to other options.  Yes, the price point will be higher but perhaps one piece of Lilly will suffice instead of nothing at all.   And, yes, customers will remember.

"A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so."  ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Pink Obsession

Pretty in Pink 2019 Are you obsessed with the hue pink?  In 2018 and now in 2019, I am enthralled with the color pink.  My list extends from from pink flats, pink jackets, pink tops and rosy pink lipsticks though I am still fixated on red.  The message this Spring is to cloak yourself in a beautiful shade of pink.  The actual hue of pink conjures success, nice, romantic, approachable, feminine, bubble gum, cotton candy and a love for self and others.  Do you have your pink on?  Here are few favorites to set the stage for Spring 2019.  Strike a Pink Pose A pink coat is flattering and pretty all at once on the owner.   Here are a few that fit the bill.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021

  First Glance Patience & Manners Please It is that time of year once again for the  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale .   Currently, you can preview the upcoming sale online.  This allows you to create a  "Wish List."   If you have a Nordstrom card, you can shop early.  For instance, Icon status begins on Monday, July 12th.  Check online for your start date.  The Nordstrom sale will open fully to everyone on Wednesday, July 28th .    Zen Master "Some people forget that kindness and manners are free."   A couple of comments before we discuss on what will sell out quickly.   Since the country is opening up after a year and half of shutdowns due to Covid 19 pandemic , it is imperative that you access your skills at being patient.  Lately, I have noticed that many are impatient in their cars, public transportation (ferries for me), and in public places where businesses and restaurants are struggling to serve and be open.  The rude behaviors and lack of manners has been

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Yearly Yellow with a Happiness Vibe The happy hues of yellow in apparel remain vibrant and strong in 2018. Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated. Perhaps it is the time of the year with the dripping pools of water, rain, sleet, hail and yes snow that stimulates the mantra, "please let there be sun". Of course, if you are in Palm Desert, California or Scottsdale, Phoenix or a tropical climate yellow rays of sunshine are always forefront and center.  For the rest of us, we are ready to drink up a few bars of light.  And, if rays come forth for a  wee bit, we dance, run outside and have an extra kick in our step.  Yet, when the elements keep on pouring our way, it is time to bring out yellow in our apparel and accessories. While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
