Phillip Lim for Target-BOOM Shirt. All Gone.

Phillip Lim For Target Review-Sunday September 15, 2013-Kapolei, Hawaii

I woke up extremely early for me on a Sunday morning (7:20 am) but needed two scoops of instant coffee, a quick bite, fast shower & I was out of the door by 8:30 am. That took way too long-Hey it was early! I got there exactly at 9:00 am. Walked in the door and there was the Phillip Lim Sign in the front of the store. Noticed the females grabbing quickly. looked for the guys clothes, hoping they were elsewhere since it was very crowded.

Alas, Guys clothes were with the ladies clothes, realized this and went into NYC sample sale mode. Grab as much as possible in sizes close to mine, then look closer at it later. Turned out to be the right move. Because within 10 minutes practically all fo the Men’s gear and most of the good Women’s wear was gone.

They had 3 pairs of the black Hi Top kicks left, Size 8, 10 and 12. I was able to nab the last size 10. And I was lucky enough to buy the two  pieces that I really went there for: the camo sweat pants (With PL’s sweat pants going for $350 at Barney’s, who could resist a pair for $34.99) and the long-sleeved Grey and dark blue french terry shirt that the guy in the TV commercial was wearing.

It was a fun and exciting morning of shopping for High Fashion at Fast Fashion prices. Only bummer was there were ZERO bags and purses (Christmas presents) when I arrived. The employees said that they were ALL gone at 8:15 am.  Many of the ladies were looking for the bags. I did see one, it was put back on the shelf, but gone in less than a second. Amazing! More Highlights and interesting things I noticed are listed below. Did you get anything in-store or on-line from the Phillip Lim for Target Collaboration Collection? Let us know in the comments area.  It’s kind of fun to read all the tweets at #philliplimfortarget   It seems it was similar all around the country. Saw many comments on how the bags went very quickly.

High Fashion Meets Fast Fashion = Frenzy Fashion=Limsanity

Highlights from today:  

Bags and Boom Shirt were first to go.  When I got there early Sunday morning. ALL the bags were gone.  I did see one BOOM shirt. It was kind of funny a guy tried to nab it from the employee as she went to put it back on the rack.  She said she had to put it back on the rack before he could touch it.  She put it on the Rack and BOOM! he grabbed it in a nano second.

One man had one or two of everything.  I went up to him at the Cashier’s and saw his bill for $798.18. Asked him if he was going to wear the clothes or sell them on Ebay. He glared with an evil stare, mumbled something. I kept moving before I got hit. Ooops, was just trying to be conversational not confrontational.

Asked a lady with a full basket where all the bags were?  She said they were gone by 8:15AM, but was waiting for some to get returned. Couple minutes later ONE black bag was put on the shelf for half a second and it was gone. Neither of us got it.

People just filled their baskets as fast as they could. I’ve only seen something similar once and that was at a High-End Jeans Sample Sale in NYC. It was like the clothes were free, they were being grabbed so swiftly. Was an incredible sight to see.

I saw a friend of mine there with an empty basket. Asked him what he was doing, He said he was waiting for two of his Japanese friends to get their from the North Shore. I asked if they were guys or gals. He said two ladies from Japan. I told him to grab a bunch of stuff from the racks NOW, or there wouldn’t be anything left by the time they got there.  Yep, I was right-only tan trench coats were left when they arrived. Needless to say they were quite happy with what he had in his basket for them! (Whew)

*Note:Prices were $10 more than what was mentioned on-line prior to the sales event.  I suspect it was because it was Hawaii.  Pizza Hut and Red Lobster are always more $$ in Hawaii than the TV commercials mention. **Shipping costs.

Hot Trend Alert-Planking hits Hawaii!

My friend over at Power 104.3 – KC told me about planking yesterday, I looked at a couple of pictures on the internet and probably thought the same as you-“Are You Serious?”  But today at Sandy Beach, my same friend KC from the KC and TAKA in the morning show gave me this picture of a hot beach babe planking at Sandy Beach. Wow!  Here in Hawaii they are planking!

Planking is described by Wikipedia as being:

“An activity, popular in various parts of the world, consisting of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body, and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the Internet is an integral part of the game. Players compete to find the most unusual and original location in which to play. The location should also be as public as possible, and as many people as possible should be involved

 In regards to planking, it seems fun, I guess I gotta’ try it sometime.  But I do wonder?  Did some Big Celebrity make this whole thing up and is now cracking up at all the people doing it?  Who knows, but who cares, Let’s do some planking-comment below or email me your pix at cybership001@yahoo.com  and I’ll post em’ on an upcoming blog.  For more pictures and additional information I found a ton of cool stuff on planking, check out popdash.com or power1043.com  Have fun planking this Summer!
