Some Liberty of London for Target items already sold out online


Alas, dear readers, I come to you with the unfortunate news that a good number of the hotly anticipated Liberty of London for Target items are ALREADY SOLD OUT online at Target.com. This includes all of the accessories (including this floral umbrella, shown) and much of the home decor.

Now a few items - like these adorable women's gardening gloves - state that they are "unavailable online temporarily" but that Target can email you once they're in stock. Hopefully, that's truly the case.

On the flipside: the good news is that there seems to be a full selection of the girl's clothing and the women's dresses still available. And surprisingly, the Liberty line is even offering the women's sizes in petites as well!

I find this really annoying, how is it even possible to be sold out this quickly? Every single piece of LOL men's clothing is already gone.

That's crazy, but sort of unsurprising. But who is it that's so quick to snap it all up, I wonder?

I went to my Target today to check out the line -- I got there an hour after they'd opened, and they only had half of the endcaps stocked. Not that things were sold out -- they hadn't gotten the items out yet. I was surprised by that (but not surprised by the group of ladies that sort of hovered wherever the employees were putting out new stock). Lots of lovely stuff, in any case!

My target was CLEANED OUT. I was really disappointed. I did manage to snag two tops though. Everything I saw was adorable and looked to be really good quality.

i expected to see a line of women standing outside when i drove up 5 minutes before opening on sunday morning. NOBODY was there. i thought, "great! i can get the teapot and chair i've been wanting!" nope, didn't have them in stock and it was "unavailable" online before i even left the house. the target employees were totally useless when i asked where all the liberty stuff was. one employee said, "i don't even know what you're talking about but i have seen that new 'jeen paul goddi-er' stuff". hello??? jean-paul gaultier, you mean? yikes. please someone help me! i rushed to another target location which seemed to have more items out, but still not a single melamine plate and no teapot. they were still stocking all the items! if you are going to release something, shouldn't they have stocked it all the night before so the hardcore shoppers who really want the stuff and are willing to drag out of bed sunday morning, can have the items they want? oh well. obviously i'm the only one in albuquerque who even knows what liberty is. i suppose my teapot will still be there later once it's finally out of the backroom. what a major dissappointment:(
waaa target! i love you but sometimes you make me mad.

3 targets this morning and a meager selection of items other than clothing. Same story here with the items not even on the shelves yet... and ladies hovering over employees. I was really disappointed with their selection and the fact that they hadn't managed to put items out even 2 hours or more after the store was open. Some of the ladies that were blocking the selection of canisters I overheard saying that a woman had come in as soon as the store opened and bought all of the lamps and home goodies they had put out (I am guessing she is going to be evil and list them on ebay as rare/sold out...grrr). I did buy one shirt and an adorable nightie, which i am very happy with :)

My Target was completely sold out as well! Very disappointed they had absolutely NO home items left!! I had my heart set on the 2 tier dessert stand (for tea/ princess parties for my Daughter) and the prep bowls. I was even more disappointed to find people already hocking Liberty from Target items for 2-3 times the cost on E-Bay!! The prep bowls were only $19 at Target and are on e-bay for $60....are you kidding me!! Thanks you cheese balls for clearing the shelves of everything to make a buck and ruining it for people who truly wanted the items for their own use!!!!

I guess some Target is not prepared...?
My case, went to one Target this afternoon. Luckily I was able to try about 12 clothes, then got 4 dresses, a bra & matching panty, 2 sleepwear sets, garden gloves, a picture frame, a watering can, and a plant pot. People were buying, and some of the stuff were totally gone, but still there were enough to choose from.
According to online search, the other local Target store carries a bag, an umbrella, a scarf, a tie, and a teapot I want. I will have a visit sometime this week.
This collection is really wonderful!
I enjoy reading your blog very much :)

Thank you, eBay speculators.

That sucks because my Targets are horrible about carrying accessories (even if the website says the store has them), now I won't be able to get them.

I did however pick up two tops. This line is made of WIN.

Critifur: I hear ya. I wanted to get some ties for my hubby. Try the stores; one store near me still had a FEW ties late yesterday...

Target-Addict said...

Readers, I agree. I went to 2 Targets yesterday (on Target twice...long story, which I'll blog about today ;-)
In any case, you're all right: the stores were slow to put out all the merch., and some stores carried more items than others.

I too went to a Target at around 1 pm and they were just putting the LOL out. The girl was nice enough to go into the back and get me one of the cannisters that I wanted... but geez. Still putting the stuff out at 1 pm?

I also bought a file box. Such adorable patterns!!

Perdoozy, you're not the only one in Albuquerque who is a Liberty fan! :) I went to two Targets (Montgomery/Wyoming and I-40/Eubank) and got a bunch of stuff. But I agree that the employees were downright hopeless.

I bought one of the candles and found the quality to be very poor. Black smoke poured upwards when the candle was lit. I trimmed the wick but no help. Back it goes :-(
