The stores(Neiman Marcus) doing a in store promotion gets the solids first. Some are sent to other stores not having a promotion but in a small amount. That is why some stores have only a few at this time or have not received any at all. When all the Jan./ Feb promotions are over then all the stores will have them( whats left).
The “spring” solids were orinally meant for mothers day so marketing set the shipping dates as such.
Saks does the same based on who is doing an after Christmas inventory or Sale.
If one store says they are sold out, do not dispare, some other store will have it. Plus EL is famous for making more of a best seller.
