Are some Lilly Pulitzer for Target sizes commanding a higher premium on eBay?

In my last blog entry, I looked at 10 different items from the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collection and how close their realized price is to buying directly from the Lilly Pulitzer website. My wife pointed out the lack of XXL size items available from Lilly Pulitzer, so a natural […]
