Cure Winter Woes with the Cabin Fever Sale!

    Do we have to found them all or with just one it’s enough?

  2. ModCloth 02/23/2011 at 4:03 pm #

    Hi, Flora!

    Winston is only hiding on one item’s page, so you just have to tell us which one that is. 🙂

  3. Tori 02/23/2011 at 4:11 pm #

    I found Winston and e-mailed, but I got a “Delivery Status Notification (Failure)” e-mail back. I double-checked, tried again and same result. 🙁

  4. Carolyn 02/23/2011 at 4:22 pm #

    I found Winston, but the email sends back Delivery Status Notification (Failure).

  5. Emily 02/23/2011 at 4:22 pm #

    I found Winston but I got a kick back when I tried to send the email! 🙁 I sent it to:

  6. Corinna 02/23/2011 at 4:33 pm #

    I found Winston, but when I sent an email telling you where I found him, it was returned to me- what should I do?!

    • KK 02/23/2011 at 4:37 pm #

      I had the same issue — my email won’t go through and I’ve tried 2 different accounts

  7. Liz 02/23/2011 at 4:38 pm #

    Same story as everyone else, got a delivery failure.

  8. Kesha 02/23/2011 at 4:46 pm #

    Likewise! Delivery failure.

  9. Izzy 02/23/2011 at 4:48 pm #

    I’ve found him, so where should i email the answer to ?

  10. Natalie B. (ModCloth) 02/23/2011 at 5:03 pm #

    Hi, everyone!
    We have our tech team on it right now, and the problem should be fixed within a few minutes! If it’s still not working in 5, let us know. 🙂

  11. mandy 02/23/2011 at 5:10 pm #

    Yeah, the email got sent back for me too… Also, how do I click ADD TO BAG without being directed to this page? I want to purchase the item on the same that Winston is on but the ADD TO BAG button doesn’t work

  12. Carolyn 02/23/2011 at 5:16 pm #

    Thanks, Natalie B.! I think my email went thru this time because I didn’t get a failure reply. Thanks for the quick fix.

  13. Evelyn 02/23/2011 at 7:02 pm #

    I found Winston too! Do we need to provide any other info in the email aside from which item page he’s on?

  14. Rebecca Jean 02/23/2011 at 7:25 pm #

    I didn’t find Winston, but I did find lots of style inspiration. Have three dresses and the most adorable coat coming my way. Thanks ModCloth!

    • Natalie B. (ModCloth) 02/23/2011 at 8:20 pm #

      Sounds like the Cabin Fever Sale was fun for you, even without Winston. 🙂 Glad you got to snag some great styles, Rebecca Jean!

  15. Jen 02/23/2011 at 7:52 pm #

    Good luck to everyone who found him. I just spent the last two hours going through every single item on the sale page and didn’t see him. Do you have to do quick view or something? ; A ;

  16. Natalie B. (ModCloth) 02/23/2011 at 8:15 pm #

    Hey, Jen!
    Try waiting a few moments for the pages to load. Winston is hiding out on a product page, so you won’t see him in an item’s Quick View! He chose his secret spot well – after all, he is a precocious li’l pug! 🙂

  17. Emily @ Write Twenty Eleven 02/23/2011 at 9:13 pm #

    i’ve been coveting the “oh what a paisley it was” scarf for quite some time now. i finally ordered it, on sale 🙂 so stoked

  18. Erin 02/23/2011 at 9:33 pm #

    Haha, I was a little dumb and accidentally sent my entry before finishing my contact info. Would I be able to send another, fully complete entry, or am I out of luck this time?

    • Natalie B. (ModCloth) 02/24/2011 at 5:30 pm #

      Hi, Erin!
      You can still send a completed entry with all your contact information. 🙂
      -Natalie B.

  19. Karis 02/23/2011 at 10:38 pm #

    Any clues? I’ve looked and added over 200 items to my bag (50 at a time) and can’t find him anywhere!

  20. Lauren 02/23/2011 at 11:19 pm #

    So no exchanges? Not even if you just want a different size?

  21. Meg 02/23/2011 at 11:39 pm #

    I’m wondering about the contact info part–isn’t the email technically contact info? Did I need to include a physical address or a phone number or something?

  22. Courtney 02/24/2011 at 1:35 am #

    Hello! I just spent the last three hours searching on quick view, but then I saw your previous comment. I was wondering, is he on a ‘Cabin Fever Sale’ item?

  23. Hannah 02/24/2011 at 11:54 am #

    hey what contact info do we need? i dont want to send too little or too much or not the right thing!

  24. Lindsey 02/24/2011 at 5:20 pm #

    I started looking in the New Arrivals until I found out that Winston IS IN THE CABIN FEVER SALES. Don’t check the New Arrivals! You’ll be searching forever if you do.

  25. Natalie B. (ModCloth) 02/24/2011 at 5:42 pm #

    Hi, everyone!
    I just wanted to answer the questions regarding what contact information we need to be included in your entries. The required info is: your full name and preferred email address (AKA the email address you’d like us to contact you at if you win).
    -Natalie B.

  26. Sydney 02/24/2011 at 6:10 pm #

    Like others, I’ve gone through EVERY Cabin Fever Sale item and still didn’t see Winston…

    • Sydney 02/24/2011 at 6:26 pm #

      Can someone at least tell me what I’m looking for? Like, do I have to click on product pictures? Add items to my bag? Look at the details?

  27. Jessica K 02/24/2011 at 6:30 pm #

    Is this still going on? I feel like I’m losing my mind. I’ve looked at each and every page on the cabin fever sale and can’t find it.

  28. Natalie B. (ModCloth) 02/24/2011 at 6:45 pm #

    Hi, everyone!
    He’s there, we promise! 🙂 Winston is hidden among the Cabin Fever Sale styles, and he looks just like the li’l pug at the end of the blog post above.
    -Natalie B.

  29. Sandra 02/24/2011 at 8:10 pm #

    I just spent my entire work day looking for Winston. I searched every single page, maximizing every photo, expanding every “+ show more details” and “view all” button, closing every “Oh no!” box, and scrutinizing every recommendation photo. It must have been on one of the pages that had no review section or perhaps I accidentally skipped that one item’s page Winston was hiding on. At least the boss is out of town this week…

  30. Mackenzie Miller 02/25/2011 at 2:20 am #

    what time does modcloth post him

  31. Jo 02/25/2011 at 3:36 am #

    Beautiful clothing! And so cheap! Can’t wait to get paid! x

  32. Emily 02/25/2011 at 9:45 am #

    modcloth please delete the comment above ruining the contest! I just spent a long time trying to find it and I don’t want my hard work to be wasted!

  33. ModCloth 02/25/2011 at 12:04 pm #

    Hi Emily, Sydney, and Maddi!

    We have deleted the comment. So sorry about that!

  34. Geo 02/25/2011 at 9:30 pm #

    will he be anywhere on the page or in place of the picture.

    I saw him a while ago before I saw my email thinking it was a product. oh dear!

    • Geo 02/25/2011 at 9:40 pm #

      and I thought I saw him on the product list among other products while I just scanning through.

  35. Elizabeth 02/25/2011 at 10:15 pm #

    sorry about that, i thought i was supposed to post here, i kinda skimmed the page and should have read the whole thing.

  36. Nielle 02/25/2011 at 10:24 pm #

    I’m still getting my email returned with a failure instantly. Is there another way to send in an entry?

    • Nielle 02/25/2011 at 10:26 pm #

      Nevermind, my email program was putting a space in front of the email address. :p

  37. Jessica 02/26/2011 at 11:30 am #

    Quick question: is it possible that he will be in the product reviews as well, or under “show more details”? Just trying to narrow down the searching spots, if possible 🙂

  38. Rae 02/27/2011 at 4:54 pm #

    Wow! I found it in the first three minutes. Glad it didn’t take hours 🙂

  39. Micalah 03/01/2011 at 8:44 am #

    Is the contest still running? I looked through all of the items last night and couldn’t find Winston.

  40. ash 03/01/2011 at 6:12 pm #

    what page is winston on ?

  41. Elle 03/02/2011 at 1:44 pm #

    I found a pug, but I’m not sure if it’s Winston or not. I hope that Winston is the only pug that is hiding at the Cabin Fever sale.

  42. Julie 03/06/2011 at 11:55 am #

    How long can we search for Winston to have a chance to win?

  43. Courtney 03/08/2011 at 11:12 am #

    Ok, this is insane, I spent soooooo long trying to find that pug and no luck, in my previous comment (weeks ago), I said I spent 3 hours trying to find him, and nothing. I just hope Modcloth takes this contest down since the sale is over….
