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? 🙂

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

      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.

      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…

      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.

    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!
