if anything she could just go back to the old address and tell them she accidentally shipped a package over there and for them to look out for one just in case (assuming she is in the same town)

I've had something similar happen twice. In one case the person lived in the same town, but at a different address. I called the PO in that town and they agreed to hold the package for her and she was able to pick it up. In the other case the package was being shipped to another town - I called the PO there and they forwarded it to the right place for no additional charge. I wasn't charged anything additional in either case and the PO was extremely easy to work with and very helpful. Good luck :-)
Even if it were to get forwarded, if she needs it by this weekend I would imagine that would add additional time and delay it's arrival. I like Lisa's suggestion!

If you can get a hold of your post person's supervisor
The supervisor is in the building where the mail is dropped off they can flag it and rewrite the correct address
I have done this several times in the past with missing apartment numbers and wrong addresses
They even called me back when the address was corrected
No charge and they were very happy to help me.
I am going to try and see what they say. I am waiting to hear back from the buyer since there are multiple PO's in the city where she lives. I am unsure which one to call.

I also offered her the overnight option. So hopefully this will work out some how!

If you call or go to your PO with the address they can give you the direct phone number of the PO the item would go to
Oh cool! I will do that tomorrow morning. My branch is closed for the night already.
She can put in a new forwarding address today. She can even do it online. It's not perfect, but hopefully a CYA move.
