Lilly for Target: My Experience and Purchases

As I'm sure many of you know, two Sundays ago,  Lilly Pulitzer released their collab with Target. I had been looking forward to this day since I initially heard about it way back in January. Everything in the collection was so bright and fun! 

Late Saturday night (around 1 am EST Sunday), I saw that the collection was officially available online. I was planning on venturing to my local Target the next morning, so I only purchased a shift dress in "Fan Dance" in a size 4. 

The next morning, my mom, my neighbor, and I met in our driveway at 7:30. We arrived at Target at 7:40 am and were 9th in line (nobody really dresses preppy where I live/wears Lilly, so I was surprised that anyone was there at all!). When we were let into Target at 8, people began to run (#preppygirlhungergames) and I was a bit frightened. I made a bee-line towards the women's clothes and was able to snatch a shift dress in "Upstream" in a size 6 (a bit too big, but still good). 

To my disappointment, my store did not carry any shoes, swimwear, or any of the beauty items. However, when on the search for the above, I saw the girl's XL shorts, and realized that they probably would fit (which they did, and for only $12!). Overall, I really like the collection and am glad that I was able to score what I did. Here's what I purchased:

shift dress in "Fan Dance"

shift dress in "Upstream"

girls' pompom shorts in "My Fans"

{Sorry about the delay in posting this- my dress just arrived a few days ago.}

What did you score at the Lilly for Target launch?



  1. First off, I just want to say how weird it is to see my name all over your blog. I know it's your name too, but I've never really known many Alyssa's in my life. I think I know like three, but I never really hung out with them. Anyways, I love your blog! I wish I had been able to check out the Lilly for Target stuff! My dad is not the kind of shopper who gets up early just for clothes, so that was a no go. I think I'll probably just save up and wait till the regular Lilly stuff goes on sale.

    1. It's awesome to meet people with the same name, and spelled the same too! Thank you so much! It's a bummer that you missed out on Lilly for Target, but your plan sounds good!
