Lilly Pulizter for Target!!

Okay, if you haven't checked out the look book that Target release for their limited edition Lilly Pullitzer collaboration than leave now and check it out here!! The release date is April 19 so start planning now!

Seriously EVERYTHING is so amazing. They have clothes, accessories, beauty, and home goods. I first heard about this last month and have been dying for this day to roll around. I can't imagine how crazy it's going to be that day.

Here are just a some of the goodies to expect:

Super gorgeous stuff right?! And that's not even all of it! I am definitely planning out my strategy for that day. Here are some things to think about before you head out:

1. Know where your Targets are. I have about 4 around me but only two larger ones. The one I usually shop at is a smaller Target so I will definitely be hitting up the larger Targets in my areas first to make sure I am getting the best selection. How early you show up is up to you just make sure you know what time your location opens and keep in mind where you live. I live in a pretty big city so I plan to be there at least an hour early...maybe two.

2. Check online. If the thought of women rushing through the doors at opening time like a pack a ravenous wolves scares you ( I think I may have just scared myself) stalk the website. I haven't found any information on a release time. They probably don't want the website to crash..but if you're cool with staying up then that might be a better option for you.

3. If you are going to shop online search for Lilly Pulitzer on you can see all the pricing information now. Know what you want right away so you don't have to click around for it. Write down the names of the product that way you can just put it into the search bar and add your size. Keep in mind that adding to your cart doesn't mean that it's yours. Check out as soon as possible because if you wait too long you might get to your cart and find that your "item is no longer available." To make things even easier, make an account now if you don't already have one. That way you can save all you information and you won't have to spend time filling anything out!

4. Stay connected with social media! So many people are following this collection right now. If you want frequent updates and maybe even and update for when the items become live, stay connected to your Twitter and Instagram. I know I will be stalking all night so follow me on Instagram (here) for a live update of when I see products available!

5. If you do decide to brave the store that day, bring a friend (or two). My mom is always someone who is great to bring to these things because she has no fear. No fear at all. Know what you guys are looking for. Maybe split up and send someone to home goods and someone to clothing. Either way, extra hands will always be helpful. Unless they're little hands. If you can leave the kiddos at home, do it. It's always hard when you have to hold hands AND push a stroller AND push through a crowd. Also, for safety reasons it might be best to leave the littles at home. Crowds can get crazy sometimes.

6. Finally, know the layout of your Target..especially if you're going to a different location than usual. Most Targets I've been to are very similar but it doesn't hurt to be familiar with where you're going.

If you've seen similar collaborations then you know that these collections aren't  usually restocked. That being said I would still check back in case someone returns something. I know I've found a couple return items at my smaller Target that were never sold at that location so keep your eyes peeled and Good Luck!
