'was triumphant' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.

'tailor seduced outside church?' is the wordplay.
'tailor' indicates anagramming the letters (letters tailored or designed).
'outside' means one lot of letters goes inside another (some letters go outside others).
'church?' becomes 'CE' (abbreviation for Church of England).
'seduced' anagrammed gives 'suceded'.
'suceded' enclosing 'ce' is 'SUCCEEDED'.

(Another definition for succeeded that I've seen is " Came into a title".)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
