Received an e-mail from Allison, Ecommerce operations manager. Once again, she apologized for all the confusion. The price discrepancy was caused by human error which, let's face it, can happen to anyone. So now we know Anthropologie is run by humans and not by Stepford's wives. The prices on-line were meant to be what they were in the store and not the other way around. I'm still of the opinion that Anthropologie could have handled this better by simply swallowing their mistake.
The good news is Anthro will be honoring the lower price for anyone wishing to replace their order. So ladies, if you had your order canceled, please call back customer service and have them put it right.
