Find the Fortune and Win One! – UPDATE: Contest Has Ended!

Pin on PinterestTweet about this on TwitterEmail this to someoneShare on FacebookShare on Tumblr

You know what’s easy to find on St. Patrick’s Day? A lot of green things. Like green garb, green beer, green milkshakes, and even green rivers! What’s more complicated to come across on this Irish holiday – and any day, really – is the kind of green stuff we use to procure pretty pieces from our favorite boutiques. But from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. EST on March 17, ModCloth will make that enterprise a little easier with the Find the Fortune Contest!

Don’t worry – you don’t have to chase a leprechaun to the end of a rainbow to locate the loot. But, you do have to comb our site for a pot of gold that looks just like the image above! You’ll find the felicitous fortune hidden within the profile of one of our products (please note that the image is not viewable in IE-9 browsers). And remember: Patience pays, so please view the full product page (not the Quick Look) and wait until it has completely loaded before moving on. If you spot the pot o’ gold while poring through descriptions of darling dresses, you just might be one of the lucky lasses or lads to win a $100 ModCloth gift certificate.

Here are a few things to remember if you uncover this kettle of coins:

  • Include which product’s page you found the pot of gold on, and also your name and e-mail address.
  • Only one entry per person
  • International customers are eligible to win
  • Winners will be announced on the Blog on March 24

At the close of the contest, we’ll randomly select two winners. What could be sweeter than being rewarded for shopping? So, hold on to your four-leaf clover, and ‘sham-rock’ your way toward that treasure!

UPDATE: Our fortuitous contest is now closed, but that doesn’t mean the fun is over just yet! Come back on March 24 to see if you’re a winner!

    will it show up on google chrome?

    • ModCloth 03/17/2011 at 2:58 am #

      Hi, Vi!

      Yup, it will show up on Chrome. Thanks for asking, and good luck!

    • Linda 03/17/2011 at 6:14 pm #

      I just found it in google chrome, so yes 🙂

    • Bianca 03/17/2011 at 8:25 pm #

      Yep 😉

  2. Courtney 03/17/2011 at 1:22 am #

    • camille 03/17/2011 at 1:40 am #

      where is it>

    • Esther 03/17/2011 at 3:29 pm #

      Camille…no one is going to say obviously. That would decrease our chances of winning. Look for it instead of asking for the answer. It’s not that hard.

  3. Caitlin 03/17/2011 at 1:29 am #

    Fun!! Gonna go start searching 🙂

  4. dene 03/17/2011 at 1:39 am #

    will it show up in quicklook, or fullscreen?

    • ModCloth 03/17/2011 at 2:57 am #

      Hi, Dene!

      The pot of gold will not show up in Quick Look, so be sure to search through the individual product pages, and don’t forget to wait for each page to fully load!

  5. Linzy 03/17/2011 at 2:07 am #

    Miracle of miracles! After two hours of searching, I finally found it. Now I have to wait until midnight to send in my entry, and hope my effort pays off.

    Good thing I’m Irish 😉

  6. Jessica 03/17/2011 at 2:49 am #

    What If your on the westcoast? is the times different?

    • ModCloth 03/17/2011 at 2:53 am #

      Hi, Jessica!

      If you’re on the West Coast, then the contest will end at 8:59 p.m. EST on March 17. Hope that helps!

  7. Maggie (ModCloth) 03/17/2011 at 2:59 am #

    Hi there!
    Everyone is eligible to enter the contest starting at 12am ET 3/17, regardless of what time zone they live in (so enter now)! The image will appear in the full product profile, not in Quick Look. @Vi, the image will show up in Google Chrome. Good Luck to you all and Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

  8. Kendall 03/17/2011 at 3:27 am #

    Kind of a stupid question, but how much contact info are we supposed to put in our entry email?

  9. stephanie I 03/17/2011 at 3:29 am #

  10. Evelina 03/17/2011 at 3:39 am #

  12. Hannah 03/17/2011 at 4:37 am #

    So we’re only looking through the dress descriptions?

  13. mel 03/17/2011 at 5:29 am #

    should out of stalk items be included in the search?

  14. Heather Boyd 03/17/2011 at 7:52 am #

    That took all of one minute. you guys should really try harder. ;p

    • Laura 03/17/2011 at 2:09 pm #

      I tried it the hard way, but then tried it an easier way. 🙂 I know exactly what you mean.

  15. Cynthia 03/17/2011 at 8:00 am #

    YAYYY i found it after 5 minutes! =D

  16. Lauren 03/17/2011 at 8:14 am #

  18. Gwen 03/17/2011 at 8:53 am #

    Can you guys give hints because my computer is old and slow, takes more than a minute for each page to load.

    • jocelyn 03/17/2011 at 4:29 pm #

      There are some darling green dresses that I think you should take a look at.

  19. Lauren 03/17/2011 at 9:13 am #

    ….I found the pot of gold on the first item I looked at!!! I would say that I have the luck of the Irish today, but I am not Irish….Oh, and I wonder if the IE 9 reason is why I never found Winston after searching for days…Today I used FireFox

  20. Bonnie 03/17/2011 at 9:29 am #

    Will you have to search each picture within the profile, or will it be more obvious?

  21. Lauren 03/17/2011 at 9:29 am #

    Can you see the Pot o’ Gold in the Quick Look window, or does it only show on the full page?

    • vi 03/17/2011 at 10:10 am #

      full page!

  22. Micalah 03/17/2011 at 9:41 am #

    Is it definitely in the dresses section? Or could it be anywhere on the site? This could take a while…

  23. Brandy 03/17/2011 at 10:02 am #

    Yeah I found it!! Need some good luck today!!!

  24. adie 03/17/2011 at 11:16 am #

    I found one! and it does work on chrome- and it amazingly only took me a few minutes – though I narrowed down my search first. 😉 good luck all!

  25. Kim 03/17/2011 at 11:22 am #

    Ha, found it after only a few minutes of searching! Yay!

    • Kayla 03/17/2011 at 12:32 pm #

      Is the pot of gold just on the page or do i have to look through each picture of the clothing?

    • JL 03/17/2011 at 9:07 pm #

    If you have pop-up blocker installed for google chrome, will this prevent you from seeing it?? D:

    • Holly 03/17/2011 at 6:55 pm #

      Nope, I have the same thing and I found it 🙂 Woop Google Chrome!

  63. Anna H 03/17/2011 at 4:20 pm #

    is the pot of gold only in dresses?

  64. Brenda 03/17/2011 at 4:21 pm #

    Just found it and entered! So glad I finally figured out how to find it easier after searching for an hour lol! Good luck to everyone :]

    • Anna H 03/17/2011 at 4:22 pm #

      where would it be on the page? on the dress? on the bottom?

    • Kirsten 03/17/2011 at 8:49 pm #

      It will pop up on the description. You won’t miss it!

  65. Victoria 03/17/2011 at 4:27 pm #

    That was pretty easy. 🙂

  66. Kayla 03/17/2011 at 4:30 pm #

    Is the pot of gold going to be on the page as soon as i open it?

  67. shabby 03/17/2011 at 4:37 pm #

    Grr I can’t find it! Everyone is saying how easy it is!

    • olivia 03/17/2011 at 4:58 pm #

      Think green:))

  68. shabby 03/17/2011 at 4:40 pm #

    ah there it is

  69. Lynn 03/17/2011 at 4:50 pm #

    Found it! FYI even with firefox and even if the page says “done” loading, it’s not complete. For some reason with modcloth when i click on a page… it’s not full complete. make sure you see the log in or shopping bag bar on top or that the wish list button and size picking buttons are working. It those buttons aren’t there or aren’t working then the page did not completely load. Happens to me all the time…just keep hit refresh until it works.

  70. Spencer S 03/17/2011 at 5:22 pm #

    Found it, woo!

  71. Rachael 03/17/2011 at 5:40 pm #

    Found it! I really hope I get it, that would be the only way I could ever buy anything on here.

  72. Jaimes 03/17/2011 at 5:46 pm #

  74. Milli 03/17/2011 at 6:11 pm #

    Would it show in IE 7 or 8? or 6? (I’m not sure which one I have). I don’t want to search for nothing.. xP

  75. Paola Victoria 03/17/2011 at 6:49 pm #

    YEY. I hope I have lucky March 24th. 😀

  76. Michelle 03/17/2011 at 6:50 pm #

  78. Brittany 03/17/2011 at 7:25 pm #

    Will it be hard to spot on the actual page?

    • Kayla 03/17/2011 at 8:11 pm #

      No, its super obvious on the page, dont worry you shouldnt miss it.

  85. Rachel 03/17/2011 at 7:58 pm #

    Yay! I found it. Once I used a little bit of clever thinking, it was easy!

    • emma 03/17/2011 at 8:00 pm #

      is the pot hard to spot on the page, or is it obvious?

    • Rachel 03/17/2011 at 8:02 pm #

      it’s pretty obvious

    • emma 03/17/2011 at 8:05 pm #

      I’ve been looking for like, an hour and I can’t find it! I was worried I missed it on one i’d looked at already

    • Lauren 03/17/2011 at 9:44 pm #

      I looked at the page twice, then the third time, the picture popped up. I don’t know why it didn’t show the previous two times.

  86. Leanna 03/17/2011 at 8:12 pm #

    Totally found it within my first five picks. Must be lucky Irish me… or I’m just smart enough to deduce where to look.

  90. Bianca 03/17/2011 at 8:27 pm #

    i feel extremely lucky this st. pat’s day 🙂 i found it on the first product i found… didnt believe it at first. modcloth is pretty clever 🙂

  91. Laura 03/17/2011 at 8:27 pm #

    Argh! I can’t find it! I’ve even read all these comments for the hints.

    • Laura 03/17/2011 at 8:31 pm #


    • Laura 03/17/2011 at 8:33 pm #

      Just found it a minute ago. Just took a bit. Finally!!!

    Thanks Mod Cloth!

  98. Megan 03/17/2011 at 9:34 pm #

    Happy St. Patricks day and good luck everyone.

  99. Abby 03/17/2011 at 9:38 pm #

    found it FINALLY

  100. Theodora 03/17/2011 at 10:49 pm #

    It is VERY easy to spot, once you find it. You load the page and viola, there it is. I thought about giving out a hint, but I don’t want to give it away! “You’ll never catch me lucky charms!” (Well, at least I hope I’ll get lucky.)

  101. melina 03/17/2011 at 11:05 pm #

    yaaay! I can’t believe I found it! I spent almost my entire night searching for it, when I finally decided to re-read the contest info and comments… they saved the day! 🙂

  102. Katherine 03/17/2011 at 11:21 pm #

    Yes I found it!!! <3

  103. Jane 03/18/2011 at 10:14 am #

    My Internets reeeeally slow but I think I found the dress. The description makes it a little obvious..But the pot of gold just doesn’t seem to want to load 🙁 I don’t want to email my guess either…Just encase it’s not the dress I’m thinking of..

  104. Me 03/20/2011 at 3:50 pm #

    Umm…is it alright if I forgot to include my e-mail address in the e-mail? *sheepish look*

  105. Sierra 03/23/2011 at 12:49 pm #

    I actually strategized.
    1. Search box
    2. “Irish”
    3. Rejoice.
