Did you ask the lady that you spoke to what it means when you were there?

I don’t know what it means, I would have asked the woman when she told me that was the status…

I’d definitely call back and ask what, specifically, that status means.  I would assume it means your dress has been either released from some type of QA department and ready for shipping, or it’s been released from the place it’s being shipped from.

If your dress is coming into the country from somewhere else, “released” could mean it has been released from customs.  That’s a long shot, but I did used to work imports/exports for pharmaceuticals so I saw a lot of “released” statuses

@Roe:  Looks like they’re closed today so she can’t :/

I’m not sure what that means but I think it would be weird for them to schedule a fitting when they don’t have your dress. Maybe it means shipped?

That’s what I’m guessing it means, shipped. Hmm…

This is a response from another blog

“Released” means that the order has gone through our system and has been passed on to the warehouse to be packed for shipping.

@julies1949:  that’s helpful (didn’t think to google!).  You’d think they would have offered the OP a bit more explanation!!

@MrsDrRose612:  I think we are all guilty, in many different lines of work, of assuming that people understand the lingo. We depend on people to ask if they don’t.

A good reminder to all of us to use language our customers/clients will understand.
