Hi, I'm Mike and I'll be assisting you. Please stand by while I review your question.
Do you have a 2 wire voltage tester?
To determine why the lamps don't work, testing the outlets is required. Need to test not guess. Testers are available at any home center.
If the room has switches, I suspect either there is a bad connection or devices were incorrectly wired for split receptacle operation. Get a tester and we can continue at that time.
