I never thought I’d be one of those people who waited in line outside a department store for that big sale inside.
Today I was.
We all were.
The store was Target and the event was the premier of Lilly Pulitzer for Target. Lots of buzz leading up to it.
I had no idea.
At about 6 am Rhonda awoke me in a panic: “We gotta go to Target! Stuff is selling out on the East Coast in seconds!”
The four of us were in line at the Northgate Target by 6:45 for the 8 am opening. Others had the same idea — we were roughly the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th people in line. The line was eventually sixty of so deep by the 8 am opening.
Finn and I were the only dudes.
As it turned out getting up early was smart. I hit the little girls section, Rhonda hit the women’s department, and we took home everything we wanted.
To the tune of $500+.
