    Default It's like being locked out of Lanvin on the day they get fall in.

    You're not a fan of, uh, university galas?

    Quite the opposite. I'm
    in my natural habitat.

    It's torture because it's at Columbia.

    And by some cruel twist
    of fate, I go to N.Y.U.

    It's like being locked out of
    Lanvin on the day they get fall in.


    What " get fall in" mean?

    I've never heard it before but I'm going to bite the bullet and have a try. I Googled "Lanvin" and it's a designer fashion label apparently. Each season, designer shops get in a new collection of clothes. "Fall" is AmE for "autumn". So my guess is that s/he is saying that it is like being unable to get into the Lanvin designer clothing shop on the day that the new autumn clothing collection goes on sale. I assume that the kind of people who get excited about such things would be very disappointed if they couldn't enter the shop on such an auspicious occasion.

    I am ready to be proved entirely wrong about my whole answer, by the way.
