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

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!

      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!

    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.

    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.)

    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..
