Lilly Pulitzer for Target

Lilly Pulitzer is doing a collection for Target, like other high end designers have done. It will be in stores on April 19. When it's sold out, it's sold out. They did new prints that will be exclusive to Target.

I need some scarves and some shoes.

Plus sizes will be available to order through the Target website.

You're not the only one to think so. Twitter blew up about it.

It's Target. I never know WTF is up with them. I avoid going in there as much as humanly possible. I would like some inexpensive, fun scarves, though.

I shop at Target so I don't feel bad about contributing to the horrible corporate practices that comprise Walmart. Agree that it's ridiculous that they won't carry plus-sizes in store, but at least they're making them. That was an issue with whoever their past collaboration was with.

Mostly I want the Lilly print hammock, although I have no idea where I'd put it in an apartment:P

I have a question. What will make these items less expensive? Will the dresses be the same material or a different material? Different prints? Just wondering where the (price) differences come from.

As with all of the Target collaborations, the prints will be slightly different and the materials and workmanship will not be on the same level. I have a Missoni for Target shell and while it's nice it's obviously not the same Missoni you would get at Saks.

The girls complaining about this making LP "less exclusive" made me chuckle. If you have a credit card and an internet connection, you can buy it even if you live in the middle of nowhere. It's not like back in the day when you had to travel to NYC or whatever.

ugh yes! I heard the same story from others, and those that are just so offended that they're selling at target because they decided to pay lord knows how much for the ACTUAL dress from LP's store.

Although I don't like LP clothing, I like that they're expanding to places to make it much more affordable!

Well... it's still exclusive to me, since Lilly won't ship to Europe. Have only been able to buy it while in the US, and since Target doesn't ship either, I guess I'm going to miss out on this one as well.

The prints were designed by LP for Target. They won't use these prints on other items. Target will have the items made and in general, they will be made more cheaply and more mass produced. Target quality runs from pretty good to crappy, so we'll have to keep our fingers crossed for "pretty good."

I liked Target until they redesigned my local store to add an expanded grocery section and moved around the departments. It's an incredibly awkward store layout and I hate it.

I also got caught up in the Target credit card hack and was incredibly annoyed with how they handled it. They sent customers an email that included tips on how to keep our credit card data safe. Umm, Target? I didn't lose my data. YOU DID! I don't need tips on data security. YOU DO!

I will admit that as a Canadian, I don't get the Lilly obsession. But I think that it's not a bad idea- like people have said, people who are "true Lilly followers" (not sure if they have a name) will know if something is a Target piece or not! When Kate Spade made their line for Chapters here (Canada's equivalent to Barnes and Noble), I didn't freak out that any notebook or planner I had bought from Kate Spade previously was now a waste of money/not worth it, I just figured, "Hey, more ways for people to enjoy it"
