Oh my…

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 21 - 2010

….As of 12.30am on the 21st Feb, the Alice in Wonderland Palette is out of stock on Debenhams.com.  That’s about 12hrs after it was first released right?

How do I know this?  ‘Cos I’ve been umm-ing and ahh-ing all bloody day trying to decide whether or not to purchase the one I’ve had sitting in my basket since lunchtime to keep as a little makeup heirloom for Leila.

At 12.30am, I decided to go for it!

BUGGER!

Hurry up and come back Alice!  Will it be there when I wake up in the morning?

  1. Time to cut a bitch! XD I wish they sold UD in Australia, but as far as I know (and I quote) ‘they have no plans to wholesale’ down under :(

  2. Chelle Chioa says:

    Wow! That was quick to go out of stock!

  3. Sarah says:

    I actually had one of these in the basket. And then I went “NO! YOU ALREADY HAVE ALL THE COLOURS AND IT’S £28!!” and stopped myself.

    Psst – what was your discount code?

  4. Tara says:

    i wasnt even aware it was being released online at the weekend i thought it was monday the 22nd :( however girls i jst been on the phone to debenhams and they are def re-stocking online so prob this week sumtime. so thats good news to someone who doesnt have a debenhams near them that does urban decay (like me lol)

  5. Duvessa says:

    Luckily I bought it yesterday then since I was bit “Ummm”ing myself. I don’t even have all the colours so a good reason to buy it. And not just for the cute box. 😀

  6. Jane says:

    Oh that’s just a shopping fail:|. But it’s got a lot of colours from the Ammo Shadow Box soo not all is bad and you could get that one if you don’t already have it.

    They might end up stocking it in ASOS because I knew they sold the first book of shadows there and by the time I knew that, it’d sold out:(

    All day yesterday, I’ve been tossing and turning to see whether I should buy it or not, until the evening when i finally succumbed.It makes me happy I bought it now, but a bit cross at the same time they did not stock up the website a bit more.

  8. Allie says:

    That’s insane! Glad they’re re-stocking though because I imagine there will be a few people who weren’t expecting it online until tomorrow (anybody else think that’s a bit unfair, releasing it early?) and are going to be in for a shock that it’s sold out.

    Awww poor you! I managed to get one thanks to you :) i really shouldn’t have got it but i’m so glad i did, i know i would have been so sad if i had missed out.

  10. Anitacska says:

    Oh no, I thought it was only going on sale tomorrow! I only checked this afternoon for curiousity. Wish I had checked earlier, but I was out all Saturday evening and was busy doing other things during the day. Bummer. Is this not going to be sold at Boots as well as Debenhams?

  11. Brenda says:

    Good news – even though this is sold out online, this Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland can be purchased by calling Debenhams mail order department, so it’s still possible to obtain before it hits the stores.

  12. Anitacska says:

    Brenda, What’s the phone number for that?

  13. Redtiger21 says:

    Gutted!!! Wonder when they’ll get it back in stock??

  14. Anitacska says:

    Actually I’ve just called Debenhams and they said it’s COMPLETELY sold out and will only be available again from 1st March (when it goes in stores as well).

  15. xx says:

    it came out on the 20th,i ordered one and was very surprised it was on 2 days early!!!! as debehmas.com stated 22nd febuary,i would check in store a lot earlier because by the early arrival of it on there website i assume they might put it out early in store to, i do feel quite sorry for those who went on today hoping to get one but actually finding out debenhams had been very sneaky.

  16. Ugh, these release dates are screwed up. I’m not at home today, but I’ll see if I can get any definitive answers on stock levels and whether it’s going instore on 28th feb or whether we’re back to the original March 1st date.

  17. Brenda says:

    The number I called to order mine this morning (11.30am) was 08445 616161. They said that even though the stocks are sold out online they can access stocks.

  18. Becka says:

    Aw gutted!
    I’d heard that it was coming out on the 22nd, then heard someone saying the 21st. On Sat, I went onto Debenhams just to have a look and it was there! So ordered it…hoping it comes soon…feel like I may not get it until I actually see it with my own eyes!!! LOL!

    Hope you can get it soon!! xx

  19. Anitacska says:

    That is the number I called and they said there weren’t any more left. And I called before 11.30 am! :( I don’t understand…

  20. Rebecca says:

    I called that number this afternoon and the woman said I’d have to wait until it came out in stores. My local doesn’t have an urban decay counter so I’ll have to go to oxford street. Been looking forward to this for days and they released it early!!! Woe is me!

    xx

  21. Brenda says:

    When I called up I gave them the Item No which was 1239329984 – perhaps this helped them access it on their system. Either way it seemed to work as they said my order had gone through
    .

  22. Anitacska says:

    I gave them the number too, and they said it’s all gone. Hohum.
