I wanted the white ones so I was ok. Funny that only select colours get the discount.

This serial use of the dash is grammatical violence. Two such dashes in sequence – such as this – imply parenthetical remark, rendering your own sentence grammatically incorrect ("Must have been written by a Millennial anything goes!").

Any idea when this event might come around again? The budget and planning isn't quite there yet.

But if the Billy is what you're looking for, they might have a sale on Billy bookcases next month based on this email I got last year in late February:

Thanks!

Yeah I went to go feel the Havsta. Unfortunately, the measurements are a bit more tight than the Billy. The Havsta did feel more sturdy, but I don't know why it felt more...plasticky(?). For some reason it didn't feel like wood. Unless I don't actually know how pine is supposed to feel...

I wonder how this works if you want to maintain the first dash to re-instate grammatical peace. "Must have been written by a millennial - anything goes!" would work, right?

After doing a quick search of "ikea storage" in my emails, it looks like this might be a once a year kinda sale. But they have some sales during the year where shipping is free, or where you get coupons during black friday. There'll be other ways you can save on a storage set.

The plasticky feeling could just be the brushed coating on the wood? I plan on going in this weekend to feel the Havsta again and to see the colours in person.

That's right. The difficulty in this case is that westcoastyvr is expressing multiple changes of thought, some of which are more closely connected than others. It'd be better to have two sentences:
"Must have been written by a Millennial. Grammar does not apply—anything goes!"

If you really wanted it in one sentence you could use a colon to introduce a list, then separate sentiments with semicolons.
"Must have been written by a Millennial: grammar does not apply; anything goes!"

Or one could use a conjunction.
"Must have been written by a Millennial—grammar does not apply and anything goes!"

All in good fun, of course.

Looking for the same answer...I am planning to go Saturday morning but it would save me a trip out of town if anyone could confirm if they got a price adjustment at the store. The fine print about not applying to previous purchases is concerning, but would that override their 90-day price adjustment policy?

I went in this morning and got price adjustments on a gift card for 2 Kallax shelves this morning.
