Early this morning, at 3am, Lilly Pulitzer and Pottery Barn launched their collaboration… and it wasn’t a complete disaster! After the Lilly for Target insanity of 2015, I was super stressed and made sure to set my alarm for 2:58am just incase a repeat occurred (crashed site, sell out in minutes, etc.). Fortunately, none of that happened, free shipping was provided (code: FREESHIP), and I was able to place my order(s) and go back to bed. I woke up today to realize that only a few things are out of stock which means there’s still plenty of time to spend ridiculous amounts of money on adorable preppy home decor! If only this launch lined up with me owning a house and having a good job…
Cashel’s 3am logic was simple. I knew it was early in the morning and was probably going to make some regrettable decisions. Before ordering anything, I checked the return policy. For reference, you have 30 days to return items after receiving them in the mail which for me, means I’ll be doing returns until late May as the projected arrival date of some of my purchases spans from this week to the end of May. I was in need of a new bedspread… well not need… My current Lilly duvet cover came from the collaboration between Lilly and Garnet Hill and is in one of my favorite old prints. Plus, my entire room at school is practically a shrine to Lilly so when it came to shopping this collaboration, I needed options.
I found two reversible quilts I loved, but couldn’t decide between the two, so I ordered both. One also came with something called a sham, and while I wasn’t 100% sure what it was, it looked pretty cute so I ordered it anyway… YOLO, right? After placing this order, I found an adorable duvet cover in the PBTeen section of the site that would replace my current one and ordered that as well. This way, I’ll be able to see them in person and make a decision at a reasonable hour when I’m fully awake!
When I woke up this morning, I also noticed that a few random items made their way into my shopping cart. I remember resisting the urge to buy all of the wallpaper and fortunately, was smart enough not to. The confirmation email didn’t include pictures, and they’ve been removed from the site after selling out. I can’t wait for them to come in so I can see exactly what I bought and promptly return them, haha!
As for the rest of the launch, it’s perfectly timed for anyone expecting a baby girl (or boy… they do have blue). I can’t get over how cute the nursery stuff is! Lilly needs to do a similar collaboration when I’m having kids because I want all of it… I’ll wait for you, Lilly!
I’m praying to God that the couches and chairs don’t sell out and end up going on 99% off sales. I’m sorry, but I’m not buying an uncomfortable looking $1,499 couch and a nearly $1,099 chair just because they’re cute… not happening. Anyway, I’m sharing a few more picks from the collaboration that are ridiculously expensive but so so soooo cute below!
