Color Yourself Lucky Contest!

With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, we can’t help but think about coin-filled cauldrons protected by mythical little men, and the spectra of light that lead to them. So, we pulled together six frocks – each representing a different color of the rainbow – and sent them to some of our favorite bloggers to see what brilliant looks they could create. Above are the prismatic pictures they sent back!

But we didn’t post these photos merely to pacify our penchant for pretty pigmentation. No, we hoped that they’d provide you with inspiration for our Color Yourself Lucky Contest. Entering is easy and fun: Just fill your wishlist with a vibrantly variegated collection of items, then share it with friends and family, and you could win your very own ‘pot of gold’ — a $50 gift certificate!

If you don’t have one already, here’s how to…

Create a wishlist:

  • Sign into your ModCloth Account.
  • Hover over “My Account” at the top of any page, then select “Wishlists”.
  • Fill it with all the intensely hued fashions you desire!
  • Once it’s ready, you’ll want to…

Share your wishlist:

  • Click the “Share” button to post your wishlist to Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, or Kaboodle, and you’ll automatically be entered in our contest. You can also enter by clicking the “Email” button to send your wishlist directly to your loved ones’ inboxes.
  • To be eligible, your wishlist must be created and shared by 11:59 p.m. PT on 3/17, and must contain garments that represent at least three of the following colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

Be sure to check the blog on 3/21 at 7 a.m. PT to discover which fortunate four people were randomly selected to receive a prize. Best of luck to all who enter — we hope you think this contest sham-rocks as much as we do!

    Do you only get one entry regardless of number of “shares” or can I share on Facebook & through e-mail and get more than one entry? 🙂

    • Alicia (ModCloth) 03/12/2012 at 12:08 pm #

      Nope, you just get one entry. But the more you share your wishlist, the more potential for people sending you gifts!

  2. Anna 03/12/2012 at 10:59 am #

    How many items can we have?

    • Alicia (ModCloth) 03/12/2012 at 12:25 pm #

      Hi Anna! You can add as many items as you want, as long as you have items that are at least three of the following colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. So you must have at least three items.

  3. Lindsey 03/12/2012 at 11:12 am #

    Ooh, fingers crossed!


  4. Christina 03/12/2012 at 11:13 am #

    Ooh how fun! Great way for us to get in the mood for color!

    Just made Italian Pasta Salad. Come see!


  5. RD 03/12/2012 at 11:22 am #

    If people submit more than once, will they get multiple entries?

  6. Dainty Girl 03/12/2012 at 12:04 pm #

    Fun! I’m going to work on this now 🙂

  7. asheslaree 03/12/2012 at 12:24 pm #

    I just did this, it was so much fun. a lot of items I picked out were already on my normal wishlist but since I don’t share that…maybe someone will give me a gift! 🙂

  8. Teresa 03/12/2012 at 12:30 pm #

    Fingers crossed I did a good job here. I had fun styling ROY-G-BIV items either way.

  9. Cori Lee 03/12/2012 at 12:43 pm #

    Here’s hoping…Lord knows I need some new items

  10. Sara 03/12/2012 at 12:51 pm #

    This was so fun! I like having a “reason” for wishlists… in the past I’ve tried to seperate them by vacations or what to buy after I lose weight, but the color theme really inspired me. Thanks modcloth, this is great!

  11. erin aka eef 03/12/2012 at 12:54 pm #

    i had a lot of fun hunting down items for this–now i hope i win so i can buy at least one!

  12. Jessica Chancey Bishop 03/12/2012 at 2:23 pm #

    Yay! Just shared my list. Crossing my fingers 🙂

  13. Karolane 03/12/2012 at 2:38 pm #

    Can I choose something in the “Coming soon”?

    • Turi (ModCloth) 03/12/2012 at 9:13 pm #

      Hi Karolane, Yup, feel free to add ‘Coming Soon’ items! Thanks!

  14. Allison 03/12/2012 at 2:50 pm #

    This is so much fun! My birthday is next month so I wanted to share my wishlist with the family soon anyways :]

  15. Hillary 03/12/2012 at 2:54 pm #

    Just filled mine out! Maybe by posting it on fb my boyfriend will get some ideas for my upcoming bday 🙂

  16. shell 03/12/2012 at 3:21 pm #

    Its not letting me pick any clothing for my wishlist? Just purses etc..

    • Mae 03/12/2012 at 4:04 pm #

      hi! i had the same issue until I realized that I had to select a size first, then put it in my wishlist. maybe this could help you?

    • Turi (ModCloth) 03/12/2012 at 9:15 pm #

      Hi Shell, Mae is correct – selecting a size should allow you to add items to your wishlist. If you’re still having trouble, let us know. Thanks!

  17. Stephanie 03/12/2012 at 4:19 pm #

    Oh yay! This will be so much fun. My birthday is April 2nd so maybe I’ll get a gift or two from my Wishlist 🙂

  18. Paige 03/12/2012 at 4:21 pm #

    I’ve never made a public wishlist. This was fun and perfect for my upcoming birthday! Who doesn’t love a rainbow?

  19. Judith 03/12/2012 at 4:28 pm #

    Time to start dropping hints for my birthday anyway so this couldn’t come at a better time :o)

  20. glambam 03/12/2012 at 4:38 pm #

    Does pink count as one of the colors?

    • Turi (ModCloth) 03/13/2012 at 9:05 am #

      You’re welcome to add pink to your wishlist, but to adhere to the rules, make sure you also include at least three of the following colors of the rainbow in your wishlist: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple. Thanks! 🙂

  21. Lucy 03/12/2012 at 5:33 pm #

    How do we know that we’ve been entered?

    • Turi (ModCloth) 03/12/2012 at 9:18 pm #

      Hi, Lucy! Click the “Share” button to post your wishlist to Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, or Kaboodle, and you’ll automatically be entered in our contest. You can also enter by clicking the “Email” button to send your wishlist directly to your loved ones’ inboxes. You won’t receive any confirmation, but don’t worry, you’ll be entered!

  22. Audra 03/12/2012 at 5:38 pm #

    ROY-G-BIV wishlist–check! Oh I had so much fun branching out of my normal favorite colors!

    I had no problems with finding red items, but I surprised myself with the amount of yellow that I added, So thanks for helping me find new fun color items, ModCloth! =)

  23. Kathryn 03/12/2012 at 5:57 pm #

    Hope I win 🙂

  24. Laura 03/12/2012 at 6:39 pm #

    Can we only pick things from the color’s link in the blog post, since those are all dresses, or can we go hunt for the rainbow colors among the accessories, as well?

    • Turi (ModCloth) 03/12/2012 at 9:21 pm #

      Hi, Laura! You can totally hunt for other colorful items you love, too, and add them to your wishlist. Thanks for checking!

  25. rachel 03/12/2012 at 7:32 pm #

    This was fun! I loved scrolling through my wishlist and seeing all the bright colors. 🙂

  26. Narnia 03/12/2012 at 7:56 pm #

    If you share multiple wishlists do you get multiple entries?

    • Hillary 03/12/2012 at 7:57 pm #

      The question was answered above, no it’s just one entry per person.

  27. Taylor 03/12/2012 at 9:14 pm #

    Oh fun! And the winner is announced on my birthday! Fingers crossed! =] Here’s what I wished for- what about you ladies? What were your chosen hues?

    • Kristen Renee 03/13/2012 at 8:29 am #

      I have a little bit of every color on mine. I normally wear purple, green, and blue, but I added a couple of yellow pieces and orange pieces to branch out my closet!

  28. Rachael 03/12/2012 at 9:26 pm #

    Tweeted, Kaboodled and Stumbled my wish list.

    I wish wish wish to win to get something from my wish list

    wishing with my fingers and toes x’d!

  29. Ashley 03/13/2012 at 8:40 am #


  30. Angie 03/13/2012 at 10:09 am #

    Done! That was fun.

  31. Lisa 03/13/2012 at 12:08 pm #

    Oh I’m so excited! I haven’t really shared a wishlist yet…

  32. Heather 03/13/2012 at 1:20 pm #

    so an e-mail of the wishlist
    will be count as an entry?

    • Turi (ModCloth) 03/13/2012 at 1:49 pm #

      Yes, you can enter by clicking the “Email” button to send your wishlist directly to your friends’ inboxes.

    • Abigail 03/14/2012 at 7:14 pm #

      I sent e-mails out to some family members, but I’m not sure if it’s working correctly. I sent my mom one, and when I asked her if she recieved an e-mail, she said she hadn’t. I tried again, this time just adding her since I thought I maybe made a mistake when I was adding other people, but she still hasn’t recieved it =(. So now I’m just hoping that I got an entry but I don’t know…

    • Sarah (ModCloth) 03/15/2012 at 12:22 pm #

      I’m sorry you’re having trouble sharing your wishlist. I’m looking into your issue, and will let you know what I hear. I wonder if the wishlist message could have gone to your mom’s SPAM filter? No matter what, if you shared the wishlist, you should be entered. You can also try sharing it via a different method.

    • Abigail 03/15/2012 at 4:12 pm #

      Thank you, I’ll ask my mom to check her spam. Just to be safe I’ll use another method also. Thanks again for your help =)

  33. Casey 03/13/2012 at 1:25 pm #

    Do you have to enter dresses

    • Turi (ModCloth) 03/13/2012 at 1:47 pm #

      You don’t have to just wish for dresses, but make sure your selections represent at least three of these six colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

  34. Allison G. Martin 03/13/2012 at 4:47 pm #

    Just entered and shared on Facebook!

  35. Rachael 03/13/2012 at 6:14 pm #

    What if an item on your wish list became out of stock after you sent the wish list out/entered the contest? Do you still qualify?

  36. Jess 03/14/2012 at 1:01 am #

    This was so much fun! This time of year is so inspiring, especially in Holland, where we have an exceptionally dreary winter contrasted against the spring brilliant sunshine, purple crocuses, and tulips of every imaginable hue.

    • Jess 03/14/2012 at 1:03 am #

      Oh, and I tweeted my list: #aestheticfauna.

  37. Tiffany 03/14/2012 at 12:50 pm #

    I’m having trouble with the wishlists. When I click to add an item, nothing happens.

    • Turi (ModCloth) 03/14/2012 at 4:29 pm #

      Make sure you’re logged into your account, select your size, and then you should be able to add items to your wishlist. If you’re still having trouble, let us know!

  38. Lindsay H 03/14/2012 at 1:24 pm #

    Fun contest! I shared mine on FB, and it is here:

    and I found about 10 bazillion things I could buy with the $50 if I won it 😉

  39. Essence Brown 03/14/2012 at 1:29 pm #

    So excited!

  40. Christina 03/14/2012 at 4:24 pm #

    I just sent mine to a bunch of friends! I was pleasantly surprised with how many pretty orange dresses I found, mostly because it’s really not my go-to color. Anyway, hope you all have a great St. Patrick’s Day, and good luck with the contest!

  41. Jenny Holiday 03/14/2012 at 4:57 pm #

    This is so totally Brill!! Adore it all to bits! Love seeing how these fab blogging gals wore each dress! 🙂

    Shared my FAVE picks on Facebook!

    Thanks for the FUN!! Fingers Crossed!

  42. Kmusings 03/14/2012 at 5:21 pm #

    I can’t seem to add anything to my wishlist. I go to the time, click add to wishlist list and choose the wishilist name, but then when I go to view my wishlist it tells me there are no items in it. I have tried several times, is there a step I am missing?

    • staciaxoxo 03/15/2012 at 1:53 pm #

      Try selecting a size, and then adding it.

    • Sarah (ModCloth) 03/15/2012 at 1:58 pm #

      First, make sure you’re logged into your account. If you’re still having problems, contact customer care and they’ll walk you through it. You can even live chat with them. Sorry you’re having trouble!

    • Kmusings 03/15/2012 at 2:23 pm #

      I finally figured it out, you have to select a size first.

  43. Ruzanna 03/15/2012 at 10:08 am #

    I’ve always had a wishlist, so I just added more colours and shared it on Twitter! Fingers crossed! Thanks, ModCloth. 🙂

  44. Laura Lynch 03/15/2012 at 1:16 pm #

    do you need to add any hashtags or @modcloth to the tweet if you want to share on twitter?

  45. Bee 03/15/2012 at 6:56 pm #

    I really want to enter this contest but, I forgot my password and I already requested a reset password email but it still hasn’t been sent; it’s been two days now:(

  47. indie women clothing 03/16/2012 at 9:42 am #

    this sounds like such a fun contest! definitely putting my wishlist together soon.

  48. Carrie 03/16/2012 at 1:32 pm #

    This is my entry:

    I chose yellow, green, and blue for my colors. I chose these colors because they’re more earthy and remind me of a warm day at the beach. I tried to incorporate many different pieces (dresses, skirts, tops, accessories) to widely show the modcloth palette. I hope you find my wishlist warm and sunny!


  49. Narnia 03/16/2012 at 8:27 pm #

    what if I have a dress with all the colors? Does that count?

  50. youh 03/17/2012 at 2:10 am #

    love these special treats 😀

  51. Toni 03/17/2012 at 5:49 am #

    Oh they are all such beautiful gals! Elycia holds a special place in my heart 🙂 She was one of the first 5 followers of my little blog and has supported me ever since – even though I am only one of the ‘little blogs’. Well done Mod Cloth for supporting such inspiring ‘real’ ladies.
