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

For the first time, in my life, I will not be going in-store for the sale.  I am positive many like me will do the same. Ever since, I was in high school, the Nordstrom Anniversary Salehas been an exciting event for me.  Grab a coffee, meet a friend and purchase clothes. We usually see other friends and spread the word on what is hot.  No doubt, the year 2020 will be one for the history books.  
If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, every…

Pleasure for You


"A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles"
Each day is a gift and being grateful for your life, your home, your friends and family is enough.  I find writing everyday about what I am grateful for in 2020 provides contentment and peace.   The Five Minute Journal as mentioned in previous posts, is a must-have for all of us living through the year 2020.  It is a wonderful way to start and end your day.  Millions of successful people take the time to remind themselves of their blessings.  Of course, shopping for yourself, within a budget, can create brightness to any day.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Three - Jeans & Tops

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.  
Additionally, the new norm for most is working from the home, which is a significant change for everyone. Thus, a great pair of jeans and a beautiful top will look and make you feel professional.  It is important to dress for success even if you are in your office or at the kitchen table.  Fix your hair, put on your makeup, and add accessories.  Why not look your best?  You are a powerful woman.  Anyone in busin…
