Target Not Restocking Lilly Pulitzer As Items List For Nearly $3,000 On eBay

The Lilly Pulitzer for Target sale certainly caused plenty of hubbub online and in stores on Sunday, as reported by the Inquisitr, which noted plenty of customer frustration about Pulitzer selling out on Target's website for some hopeful shoppers, while others were able to score their hauls from brick and mortar Target stores and post their photos online and across social media.

Despite the fact that wasn't accessible for a frustrating amount of time when the sale was announced, Thomas says that the company took it down on purpose and reports "there was extreme traffic" to the website. Target took down their website for approximately 15 minutes at 3 a.m. ET, and didn't crash.

It was by 12 p.m. ET when the collection had sold out online, and only random reports of shoppers being able to find any Pulitzer clothing or items in stock have surfaced, with one shopper having success at a Target Superstore instead of a regular Target store. In the meantime, buzz about the #LillyForTarget hashtag is still moving along on Twitter, which reveals reports from sad customers who weren't able to purchase any of the Pulitzer products online nor in brick and mortar stores.
