Target may have just committed the biggest fashion faux pas in the company’s history.
The retail giant, that joined the anti-gun campaign in 2014 by requesting customers – in states where open carry is legal – don’t bring guns into their stores, has now come afoul of at least 40 percent of their female customers.
The store just announced a new Lilly Pulitzer Collection coming to their stores that includes plus sizes.
Good news, right?
Not so fast.
The plus sized portion of the collection is ONLY available online.
The announcement sent Twitter into a frenzy and tweeters attacked the retailer for discrimination.
@FatGirl_fashion Thanks for your interest in the Lilly Pulitzer for Target line. The plus sized collection will be available online only.

With almost 2,000 stores Target can't have some plus size clothes in there somewhere? I don't know.I just don't buy it. #lillyfortarget

Welp… I guess I won't be camping out outside for my shot at the Lily Pulitzer collection.

@target Are you, as a company, wanting fat women not to be seen in your stores? Gee, thanks. You're great. *rolls eyes*
